 NATIONAL FLIP FLOP DAY HISTORY

In 2007, Tropical Smoothie Cafe created National Flip Flop Day, an “unofficial” National holiday, to celebrate it’s 10th anniversary.  Every year on this date, customers who come into participating Cafes across the nation, wearing flip flops, receive a free Jetty Punch Smoothie.  Tropical Smoothie then gives proceeds of a $1 paper flip flop, from customers, to send ill children and their families to Camp Sunshine.

Camp Sunshine is based in Casco, Maine and their mission is focused solely on addressing the effects of a life-threatening illness on every member of the immediate family — the child, the parents and the siblings.  This year-round program is free of charge to families.

 

$365,000 was raised by Tropical Smoothie Cafe, for Camp Sunshine, in 2012.  This brought the total amount raised since the beginning in 2007, to over $1.5 million.   The money raised in 2012, from Tropical Smoothie Cafe, was enough to send 150 children and their families, from across the country, to camp for a week of fun, games and activities.

Not very often--I don't like the thong between my toes and I need more arch support.
