June US Awareness Days

Flip out for National Flip Flop Day! 17 June 2016

National Flip Flop Day will be taking place on 17 June 2016 – so it’s time to get those toes exposed and start enjoying summer!

The day is organised by Tropical Smoothie Cafe, a franchise in the USA that wants us to ditch our shoes and socks and get our flip flops on!

Now in its ninth year this annual extravaganza marks the start of summer, and customers who appear in one of the 300 stores between 2.00pm and 7.00pm in their flip flops get a free smoothie!

There is a serious side to the campaign though.   The company makes a donation to Camp Sunshine for every customer that wears flip flops.  This special camp was created in 1984 for children and their families who are dealing with life threatening illnesses like cancer, kidney diseases and lupus.

All sorts of support is available at the camp for both children and parents, and with the help of National Flip Flop Day they can continue doing their good work.

To find out more visit the National Flip Flop Day website and get your flip flops on!
