Slurpee fans set your reminders! Tomorrow all participating 7-Eleven locations will be giving away free 7.11 ounce Slurpees. Why? Because July 11th (aka 7/11) is the convenience store's official birthday and they want you to help them celebrate. Find a store near you - just call to confirm first. As the 7-Eleven rep told me, "most stores will be participating in the main event, but not all of them."
Sure, these cups are smaller than most, but be careful, they'll still give you a brain freeze.
In celebration of National Doughnut Day (which is today, June 1), participating Krispy Kremes will be giving customers a free doughnut of their choice. National Doughnut Day was originally created back in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army in order to raise funds for the Great Depression, as well as to honor the WWI Salvation Army volunteers who prepped doughnuts for soldiers. It's celebrated every year on the first Friday of June.
"National Doughnut Day is a perfect time for us to give a little something back to our loyal customers throughout the country," said Stan Parker, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Krispy Kreme. "It's also a great opportunity to build awareness and acknowledge the continued good work of the Salvation Army."
So go out there and help them build awareness by eating free doughnuts!
And sorry I didn't let you in on it earlier, I just found out myself!
