It’s National Donut Day hurray!
Yes it is a real thing lol National Donut Day started in 1938 as a fund raiser for the Chicago Salvation Army. Their goal was to help the needy during the Great Depression, and to honor the Salvation Army “Lassies” of World War I, who served doughnuts to soldiers.
Through out the years the day has gotten so big that there’s even an official website Donut Day USA.
But wait, it gets better. I found a list of places giving away FREE DONUTS TODAY!
- Krispy Kreme is offering a free donut to everyone on Friday with no purchase necessary.
- Dunkin Donuts will offer a free donut with the purchase of a beverage on Friday.
- LaMar’s Donuts is giving away free donuts Friday with no purchase necessary, and a portion of this week’s sales are being donated to The Salvation Army.
- Print this Facebook coupon, and you can get a free donut at Tim Hortons with any purchase on Friday.
- From now through June 15, Entenmann’s is donating $1 to the Salvation Army for everyone who likes the company’s Facebook page. It has also launched a Donut Day sweepstakes, where 100 winners will receive free Entenmann’s donuts for a year. (Hundreds of other prizes are offered as well.)
