Small Change Brings Big Change With McDonald’s Round-Up

Isn’t it great when technology and innovation come together for the greater good?

McDonald’s recently developed a new way to make a big impact on our local community and customers are taking to it.

The new technology is called Round-Up.

When placing a self-order at the touchscreen kiosks, customers  have an opportunity to Round-Up their purchase to the nearest whole dollar. A little change goes a long way.

You may be familiar with dropping spare change in the container at the McDonald’s drive through or at the counter for the Ronald McDonald House Charity® (RMHC®).

Customers can still can donate that way, but in a world where debit cards rule, and not many of us carry cash…(I never have cash…who does?!) this new technology makes giving change easy as (hot apple) pie.

Innovation and technology come together beautifully in this new way to give back.

It is great news for our local community because all the local rounded up change goes to support the local RMHC®.

For decades, RMHC® has ensured families with sick children are able to be together and close to the care they need. This is made possible in part through the change collected from generous customer donations at McDonald’s restaurants.

  • Choose your menu items from the touchscreen kiosk
  • At check out, you will have a chance to Round-Up your total to the nearest whole dollar
  • Tap Round-Up if you would like to donate to RMHC®
  • Proceeds from Round-Up help RMHC® and its network of local Chapters serve more families every day

Thanks to McDonald’s continued commitment to innovation and technology customers can now easily lend a helping hand to families in our community.

When you Round-Up your total, you’re helping to provide a comfortable place for families with sick children to stay, near the hospital, complete with home-cooked meals, private bedrooms and playrooms for kids. There are over 181 Ronald McDonald House programs in the U.S. By the end of 2020, Northwest Arkansas will have 25 rooms for local families. Round-Up for Northwest Arkansas.
