I had the best time celebrating at the kick-off for the new menu launch at McDonald’s this weekend. McDonald’s North Texas and I hosted a game night to spread the word at three North Texas McDonald’s (Dallas, Fort Worth and Jacksonville) about their new Menu of Moments. We were greeted by a surprise visit from Santa as local influencers, McDonald’s staff, Ronald McDonald House Charity (RMHC) Staff, and customers enjoyed 60 minutes of moments!
On December 10, 2019, McDonald’s launched the Menu of Moments which celebrates togetherness. In partnership with RMHC, customers now have the opportunity to round up their total purchase to the nearest dollar and the difference is donated straight to North Texas Ronald McDonald House Charities. This small or large contribution assists the overall efforts to “Keep Families Close” by providing funds to support each house and the families that temporarily call it home while their loved one receives the medical attention they require.
Did you know that it costs each house $80 a night to keep a family together? Since 1974 the Ronald McDonald House Charities have made it their business to provide a home away from home for millions of families in times they need it most. The Dallas RMHC has undergone expansion and now has 30 extra rooms. Their CEO, Jill Cumnock, was so kind and excited to share the impact they have made in Dallas and beyond. You can learn more about the Dallas RMHC here.
As society progresses into the digital age this is the perfect platform to make a real difference in someone’s life. Every penny counts! The Menu of Moments is an additional benefit to the RMHC on top of the Pennies Per Pound, Pennies Per Happy Meal, Amazon Smile, and local initiatives. You can learn about them here.
Thank you to all of my friends, family, and followers that came out to support a fun game night to kick-off the Menu of Moments! We had a great time playing with your little ones, visiting with Santa, and learning more about the RMHC.
Please support your local McDonald’s – they are doing fabulous things in your community and changing lives daily.
I’m lovin’ it and you will too!
