Most people never heard of a reason to celebrate a piece of footwear, but it’s the National Flip Flip Day as we honor the bargain rubber sandal that protects our feet from the hot turf, from the beach to the sidewalks.
That rubberized shoe that isn’t quite a sandal but yet not quite a slipper either. It’s just simply the most wonderful thing humankind created. It’s perfect for the beach or slipping into after your feet kill from a whole day in heels.
It’s the go-to shoe for Sunday bagel runs or a quick errands. It is also the cheapest shoe we would ever put on our feet, but it is probably the best article of footwear we will wear in our lifetime.
But like all simple treasures, sometimes they can go awry.
Every year, on the third Friday in June Tropical Smoothie Cafe celebrates its national holiday; National Flip Flop Day!
This year’s National Flip Flop Day will be held on June 15, 2012. And, customers who come into our more than 300 Cafes nationwide from 2 pm to 7 pm sporting their finest flip flops will receive a free 24oz. Jetty Punch Smoothie.
Sure, Tropical Smoothie Cafe loves flip flops so much that we’ve created a holiday to celebrate the shoe. But, there’s more to it than just that. What started as a day to thank our customers for their loyalty to Tropical Smoothie Cafe, has turned into a mission to raise money for Camp Sunshine.
Camp Sunshine is the only retreat in the nation to address the effects of a life threatening illness on every member of the immediate family – the ill child, the parents and the siblings.
And, you don’t have to wait for National Flip Flop Day to help! Now through June 15, you can make a real difference in the lives of these children and their families by stopping by your local Tropical Smoothie Cafe and making a donation.
