McDonald’s wants you to Shave the Date for a special McRib giveaway

McDonald’s is celebrating the return of the McRib

McDonald’s is celebrating the return of the McRib in a big way. And that big way includes giving away 10,000 sandwiches, along with some shaving.

We all know that No-Shave November is a big thing over the last few years. And with many people in lockdown and staying home, even more people are keeping the bears and mustaches. In an effort to build up a buzz around the return of the McRib, McDonald’s is asking people to “Shave the Date.”

In partnership with No-Shave November (an initiative to help aid in cancer research), McDonald’s is asking people to enter their clean shaven faces for a chance to win one of 10,000 free McRib sandwiches.

How to get a free McRib from McDonald’s

According to the press release,

Starting today, we’re giving away a FREE McRib to the first 10,000 entries* from fans who show us their clean-shaven face. Beard or no beard, prepare for the McRib with a shave—or even a facial mask—because anyone can participate, from your brother to your mother, sister-in-law or cousin’s roommate. Just post a picture of your cleanly-shaven or baby-smooth face on your public Twitter or public Instagram profile using #Shave4McRibSweepstakes and tag @mcdonalds.

While at first glance this might seem like this giveaway is directed to the guys, it is clear that anyone can join in the fun. And we plan to do just that. After all, this is the first time the McRib has been on the menu nationwide since 2012. After eight long years, this sandwich is coming back for everyone to enjoy.

And if that means taking part in an epic Shave the Date giveaway, then we have every intention of doing our part. It also helps that this giveaway will also help in the fight against cancer.

In fact, even if you don’t take part in the giveaway, there is still a way for us to all give back when we buy a McRib. According to McDonald’s, “Just buy a McRib on Dec. 2 and your purchase will help support our donation to the charity’s cancer initiatives.”

It’s time to welcome back the McRib and we are definitely excited. Will you be snagging this iconic sandwich?
