Dairy Queen Blizzards for a Cause? Yes, Please.

Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie Blizzard July-08I love DQ Blizzards. Thin Mint. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. M&M’s. Strawberry Cheesecake. Yes, please. There is nothing better than a DQ Blizzard on a hot day. And, today, I bet they are even “calorie-free,” as eating one goes towards a good cause. Today is Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen, where at least $1 of each Blizzard goes to the Children’s Miracle Network.

Since 1984, Dairy Queen has raised $77 million in support of the Children’s Miracle Network. The purpose of the CMN is to support local children’s hospitals. This network includes 170 U.S. hospitals. The donations of the CMN assist roughly 17 million children each year. You can view some of their touching stories here.

On August 13, 2009 participating DQs will be donating at least $1 of every Blizzard sold to the Children’s Miracle Network.

So, take your noon break and grab yourself a DQ Blizzard. It takes good and is for a good cause!
