Flip-Flop Day was started 6 years ago by the Tropical Smoothie Cafe and is celebrated annually on third Friday in the month of June. This year 8th annual national flip flop day is organized on 17th June 2016.
Initially the day was started to thank the customers for their trustworthiness towards Tropical Smoothie Café, but later evolved into a charity to raise money for Camp Sunshine to address the effects of a life threatening illness like cancer, kidney diseases and lupus on every member of the immediate family – the ill child, the parents and the siblings.
It is a fun filled national holiday created with the intention to send kids with life-threatening illnesses, and their families to get away and forget their everyday stresses at camp for relaxation and fun.
Customers who visit any Tropical Smoothie Café across its 300 locations nationwide in between 2 pm to 7 pm on this special day sporting their flip flops will get a 24oz. Jetty Punch Smoothie for free. In return of a smoothie they will simply ask for a donation to send children to Camp Sunshine and through this the company donates $1 for every customer that wears flip flops to Camp Sunshine.
On Flip-Flop Day, you can stop by the local Tropical Smoothie Café and make a donation which makes a real difference in the lives of these sick children and their families.
It’s time to show off your pedicures for a good cause! On the occasion of 7th national Flip Flop day, get your flip flops on and help a child in need.
