McDonald’s Annual Charity Campaign
The annual McDonald’s charity campaign has been launched in the Central, Eastern, and Northern regions, under the name “Buy a book… Give them hope”, where 4 options of children’s story books were sold for 10 SAR per book, and all their sales went towards supporting Down Syndrome children.
The target number of stories to be sold is 220,000 books, in order to raise 2.2 Million SAR to support 250 Down Syndrome children in collaboration with 3 associations, divided as follows:
