Prosperity Gives Back – A Weekend of Sharing with McDonald’s

McDonald's has always been my preferred choice of fast food chain due to the taste, hygiene, reliability and consistency in food preparation. As such, I'm fully supporting them when I knew that McDonald’s will be raising proceeds for more than 60 local charity homes on 19th and 20th January 2013 in conjunction with the 20th Anniversary of the Prosperity Burger. With every purchase of a Prosperity meal, RM 1 will be donated to the needy.

‘PROSPERITY’ stands for 10 values that McDonald’s holds dear – Happiness, Friendship, Love, Satisfaction, Peace, Abundance, Sharing, Family, Affection and Joy. That is why this is a good opportunity for caring Malaysians to enjoy their favorite peppery treat in happiness and joy with loved ones while spreading and sharing prosperity with those who are unfortunate.

“Thanks to a generous donation from McDonald’s Prosperity Gives Back program, we were able to settle a significant portion of our expenses including the deposit and rent for our premises, at a time when we were in a desperate need for funds. This timely contribution ensured that the folks under my care continued to have a place where they could call home,” said Norma Safa, caretaker of Nur Home for the Disabled.

McDonald’s revealed radio announcers Phat Fabes (Fly FM), Leya (HotFM) and Nicholas Ong (OneFM) as the faces for this year’s Prosperity Gives Back charity drive and on January 19th  and 20th, they will all be at McDonald’s Kota Damansara Drive-Thru from 11:00am onwards to serve Malaysians as volunteers.

To help foster the spirit of Prosperity Gives Back, McDonald’s has made available a microsite last December, where Malaysians can share true, heart-warming stories behind their experience of the 10 Values of Prosperity. Selected stories will be published in leading newspapers to be shared with Malaysians in February 2013.

  1. Ya, saw this in Isaac Tan's blog a few days back. No need for promo, they still can afford to give to charity really...but sure it's good to give a bit especially during this auspicious festive season. I never liked their prosperity burger though - not that fond of black pepper sauce.

    1. If they directly give to charity, then you wouldn't feel that you've done charity also.
      So they want their customers to participate in the campaign :)
