On this day of solidarity, this year, 100% of Big Mac's sandwich sales will be donated to Ronald McDonald's House, and also for the first time to the SI Foundation, directed by Manuel Lausanne.
The collection will be held on Friday in all McDonald's stores in the country. Those who want to help, can also buy their Big Mac through the McDonald's pre-sale APP, paying with Mercado Pago.
The SI Foundation is located in Santiago since 2012, when the first university residence was opened. "We already have two houses operating in the province, and in January the construction of the third one is starting, there are 34 boys at the moment. Last week we talked with the applicants to enter the next year and more than a hundred boys appeared in order to go in to continue studying, Santiago was the first blow to expand into other provinces, "said Manuel Lozano.
"The idea of being able to take part in November 9th is important for us because it allows us to continue the expansion of residences in different parts of the country and that more and more children have those who can continue to study." Having the ability to continue studying should not be a privilege but something we can all do, "he finally considered.
