National Donut Day...


How can I have the word "Donut" in my blog title and not celebrate the fact that TODAY is NATIONAL DONUT DAY!!! :)  Do you know how this day came about?  The event was created by the Salvation Army in 1938 as a fundraiser to help the needy during the Great Depression and to honor the women who served donuts to the soldiers during WWI.  It is always the first Friday in June.

Today Krispy Kreme is giving away a free donut to their customers at many locations.  Dunkin Donuts offers a free donut with a beverage purchase.  Check their websites to see which locations are participating, or just visit your favorite donut hot spot and pick up a box of donuts to share with your family!  They will be happy you did. :)
