Happy Free Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream Day!

27 Sep

You know me, I love freebies!  Today, from 5-8pm you can get a free “Sprinkled with Wishes™ Creation™”- Sweet Cream Ice Cream, Brownie, Rainbow Sprinkles and Fudge ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery.   Now, there’s a reason for the free ice cream.   You can also donate $1 for a Make-a-Wish Star with your name on it.

The Make-a-Wish Foundation has been around since 1980 and has granted over 200,000 wishes.  C’mon you like kids, right?  How about sick kids?  Fun fact:  the average wish only costs about $7,000.  That’s VERY reasonable, and I bet from today’s donations alone many wishes can be paid for.

My favorite granted wish went to Erik Martin, who wanted to be a super hero for a day.  It was so freakin cute, and the guys from Deadliest Catch even played bad guys.

Meet Electron Boy!

So, do a good deed today and donate a dollar, (or more!) to the Make-a-Wish Foundation and get some yummy ice cream as a bonus.  I’ve gone before, and while the line seemed daunting at first, it moved pretty quickly, so don’t be discouraged!

Celebrate Free Ice Cream Day and donate to the Make-a-Wish Foundation early and often!

    I wasn’t sure if you had heard, but Erik passed away a couple weeks ago 😦 http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/hometownannapolis/obituary.aspx?n=erik-martin-electron-boy&pid=153886795
    So sad. What a rough life he led, but I’m glad Make-a-Wish was able to give him such a special day.
