Which words from the title caught your attention? Was it 100% fresh beef? Quarter Pounder? Or how about Giveaway? No matter which I think you’re going to like what you’re about to read.
McDonald’s is excited to announce that they are launching a new 100% Fresh Beef Quarter Pounder! These new Quarter Pounders are cooked to order and are hotter and juicier than ever before. As a dad, I like to think of myself a burger aficionado to some degree, and I already enjoyed a good Quarter Pounder, now they are even better.
So, head on down to one of your local or worldwide McDonald’s locations and try out the new Quarter Pounder. This dad give it two thumbs up, as does mom. Perfectly cooked, tasty, and made to order. Maybe make a little day trip as a family for dad on Father’s Day next weekend.
There’s a reason I suggest that. If you’re familiar with McDonald’s, they have the Ronald McDonald House Charities, and on June 14 th through June 17 th, Father’s Day Weekend, the McDonald’s Co-op of Metro St. Louis will host a fundraiser to highlight McDonald’s new 100% fresh beef Quarter Pounder and Signature Fresh Beef burgers. Each time a customer purchases a fresh beef burger this weekend, owner/operators will donate 25¢ to the newly remodeled Ronald McDonald Family Room at St. Louis Children’s Hospital near the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Craig Moeller from KSDK/Channel 5 is helping promote the event and if you can you can donate as well. All you have to do is drop your change into the Ronald McDonald House Charities donation box that is located in each restaurant.
Small Change. Big Difference
Here in the St. Louis metropolitan region, all of the 156 McDonald’s are locally owned by business people who care about the community and the lives of their customers and employees. That’s why McDonald’s owner/operators support numerous nonprofits, particularly Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis.
“Small Change. Big Difference” will help pay for the Ronald McDonald Family Room at St. Louis Children’s Hospital near the Neonatal Intensive Care unit that is currently being remodeled. It was ten-years-old and needed upgrading. St. Louis has four Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, which last year alone served more than 12,000 families at no charge and saw more than 60,000 visits at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Mercy Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
Each family room offers an “oasis” within the hospital so families can access hot showers, laundry facilities, a small kitchen with complimentary snacks and coffee, TV, internet access, toys and games for siblings of ill children, and a quiet area – all free-of-charge and just steps away from their child’s hospital room. These rooms are especially important to the St. Louis community because they serve our local families.
But St. Louis Dad, didn’t you say “giveaway”? That I did, and let’s get into that. For reading my pitch above about supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities I want to offer up some gift cards and other cool prizes.
First up is if you see me out and about, just come up and say “hi” and I will hook you up with a coupon for a free Quarter Pounder, Happy Meal, French Fries, or GoGurt (while supplies last). That’s it, just say “hi”.
The second giveaway is just as easy, all you have to do is comment below with your favorite memory from McDonald’s. I will then collect all of the comments and randomly select four winners to receive a $20 McDonald’s Gift Card!
The final giveaway will be a surprise mini Happy Meal box with a couple really cool prizes inside! I will select my favorite comment from those submitted for the final giveaway! So share your stories!
