Smiles and Laughter at Charity Screening of the Angry Birds Movie
30 May 2016 – Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and McDonald’s Malaysia last weekend treated 434 children and their guardians from 16 orphanages to a morning of food and fun with the special screenings of the Angry Birds Movie across several venues in Penang, Selangor and Johor.
The screening was preceded by the presentation of a RM 5,000.00 donation from RMHC to each home, amounting to a total of RM 80,000.00 donated to all 16 orphanages. What’s more, Ronald McDonald himself was there to introduce the stars of the film; Red, Chuck and Bomb to the excited audience.
Speaking at the screening in Selangor, Victor Sim, and RMHC President said that the event was one of many that RMHC is embarking on in their collaboration with McDonald’s Malaysia, in its mission to reach out to the underprivileged children of Malaysia.
“Since 1990, we have raised more than RM14 million to fund programmes thanks to the generosity and selflessness of our fellow Malaysians. These funds have gone on to positively impact young lives in the areas of health, education and welfare,” said Sim. “We certainly do hope that Malaysians will continue to show their support and come together in solidarity to support RMHC in enriching these children’s lives.”
After the curtains closed on the film, the children were further treated to a scrumptious meal sponsored by McDonald’s Malaysia. “RMHC has been our charity of choice for over 25 years that it has established itself in Malaysia. We are strong believers in the work that they do and we are very happy to have been a part of this fun filled event,” said Azmir Jaafar, McDonald’s Malaysia Managing Director. “It truly gives us so much joy to interact with the children and to see the smiles on their faces and we look forward to continuing our support for RMHC and the wonderful work that they do in the years to come.”
