Everyone loves it when McDonald's starts selling their yummy Shamrock Shakes. But, do you know the heart-warming story behind the shake?

According to Twin Falls McDonald's owner Bill Kyle, beginning in 1974 proceeds from the Shamrock Shake helped raise enough funds to open the first-ever Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia.

To celebrate the Ronald McDonald House, McDonald’s will donate 25 cents to Ronald McDonald House Charities for every McCafe Shamrock Chocolate beverage sold. Hurry, the celebration ends March 17th.  The Kyle family wants to thank you for supporting this great cause that helps families stay close when a child is sick.
