In the spirit of sharing the light this holiday season to those affected by the recent onslaught of Typhoon Odette, Yang and Chan collaborated for the benefit of the McDonald’s Kindness Kitchen, a program of the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) that was set up to serve meals for frontliners and marginalized communities. With the support of its partners the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF), Naval Reserve, Coca-Cola, Air Asia, and the Philippine Airlines, McDonald's activates its Kindness Kitchen to serve 20,000 meals in communities affected by the typhoon.
Since it began its operations in March 2020, McDonald's Kindness Kitchen has served over 550,000 hot meals nationwide. It continues to serve kindness to more communities with the support of its corporate and individual donors.
