NYC World Children's Day Event A Success Through Cookies, Crafts and Conversation With Tamia

This month, participating McDonald's restaurants across the United States will celebrate World Children's Day at McDonald's, an annual program since 2002 that raises funds and awareness for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and other children's causes. In addition, Celebrity Friends of RMHC are also showing their support through a series of special events and a new public service announcement.

On November 20th, Grammy nominated singer Tamia Hill participated in World Children’s Day ® at the Ronald McDonald House of New York. Along with Tamia included actress and philanthropist Holly Robinson Peete, and Ronald McDonald House Charities Board Chairman, Linda Dunham, with members of Mocha Moms, a support group for stay-at-home mothers of color. The Ronald McDonald House of New York is a facility that offers temporary housing to children undergoing treatment for pediatric cancer and their families.
