Support the annual “Give A Hand” fundraiser at McDonalds

As the holidays come close, it is time to think about others. The idea of lending a hand or giving back to others is a paramount at this time of year. Being grateful for what we have is an important lesson to teach our children.

McDonalds is encouraging its customers to give a hand to the Ronald McDonald House charities. From November 10 through November 20, customers can show their support in a variety of ways.

In McDonalds stores, customers can purchase a paper hand for $1, $3 or $5. All denominations make a difference to a charitable organization.

If you aren't in a position to provide monetary support, your family can participate in the Give A Hand Online Sweepstakes. Submit a photo with an inspirational message supporting Ronald McDonald House charities. What can you say with your hand? Make a smile, write a note, and express yourself.

Upload your hand photo to, you’re automatically entered to win $50 for yourself and a $500 donation to a local RMHC Chapter. One lucky winner will be selected each day of the sweepstakes! We also ask that you share your photo with family and friends on Twitter and/or Facebook.

Each year, more than four million families with critically ill children rely on RMHC’s services to stay together in their time of need. 

These aren't the only ways to support this charity. Check out for lots of ideas to raise awareness for a worthy cause.
