Macdonald cares

Thursday 19th jan was a busy day with so many appointments at night. Decided to go for the community event for the aged from the homes organized by macdonalds to celebrate Chinese new year with them. Such a sweet thought!

A total of 38 seniors and 2 volunteers from Lion Befrienders Service Association were there. Accompanying them was mr ronald macdonald himself who made a surprise appearance with the managing director of macs. The mood was so joyful with the mc being one of the elderly macdonald employees belting out tunes and also ra ra ing everyone to clap their hands. Of course they were also treated to macdonald meals! They were so happy!

And more than this, macdonalds will be sharing their gift of prosperity by donating 10 cents from the sale of every prosperity feast meal and prosperity extra value meal between 1st jan 2012 to 31st jan 2012 ( 11 more days left!) all proceeds will go to minds - movement for the intellectual disabled of Singapore where it will be used to help needy families with children with intellectual disability.

So what does the prosperity meal consist of : at $8.30 you will have a prosperity burger of either chicken or beef ; twister fries ; orange mcfizz and a choice of dessert either apple or pineapple pie.

And If you want to do more donations to minds, you can do so at the donation boxes specially set up in 12 selected macdonald restaurants at ang mo kio, northpoint yishub, causeway point , harbourfront centre, Springfield tower, great world City, east coast park, bedok interchange, tampines mall , jurong central park , king albert park and lot one.

I am very happy that organizations have begin to be more socially involved and most importantly embracing elderly who are still happy to work and providing them with flexible hours. And also the disabled whose parents are constantly worrying about them Should they pass on. Who will accept them and help them to be independent? So it's always such a comfort when people lend a helping hand to the community. Teaching them how to fish rather than just give them the fish. It takes effort but you make such a huge difference.

For macdonalds, they started a community programme "McDonald cares" - holds a series of activities for children from minds schools to learn valuable life skills through fun games designed and conducted by over 300 macdonald staff volunteers.

Thank you for being a part of the community of helping hand macdonalds :)
