Your Small Change Can make a Big Difference! Participate in RMHC Day of Change July 1 And Help A Family In Need!


On July 1, Ronald McDonald House Charities and McDonald’s will celebrate Day of Change. On this day, McDonald’s customers are invited to help a family in need by donating spare coins at any Greater Atlanta area McDonald’s restaurant. By dropping small change into one of the donation boxes located by the cash register, a big difference can be made. A full donation box could provide a night’s stay at the Ronald McDonald House for a family whose child is receiving treatment at a nearby hospital.

At the Ronald McDonald House, families can enjoy many of the comforts of
home, receive nutritious meals prepared and served by volunteers and obtain emotional support through contact with other families experiencing similar situations. No family is turned away if they cannot afford the small $20 requested contribution and many of these families stay at the Ronald McDonald House for weeks, and sometimes months, while their children receive medical treatment.

Ways to get involved:
  • Encourage your friends to RSVP to the RMHC Day of Change facebook event page
  • Use your Twitter handle to spread the #DayOfChange message
  • Create a friendly office competition to see who can collect the most change and visit McDonald's together for lunch and to donate the change collected
  • Host a craft activity to decorate change boxes then take a field trip to drop your change at a participating McDonald's restaurant
