Today marks the 18th annual McHappy Day at McDonalds.

McHappy Day (aka a good excuse to cheat on your diet) is when 1400 of McDonald’s restaurant chains across Canada donates a dollar from every Big Mac, Happy Meal, and Egg McMuffin to local children’s charities, including the Ronald McDonald House.

McHappy Day has raised more than $32-million for children across Canada.
