I love free stuff- don't you?  And when it's free stuff that is also supporting and bringing attention to a great cause, that is even better!

I now bring to your attention March 19th.  What is March 19th?  That is FREE CONE DAY at Dairy Queen!  You know what else that day is?  It's the first day of Spring.  And each year the Children's Miracle Network teams up with DQ and celebrates with Free Cone Day.  It's a day we all love.

Over the last 35 years, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $145 million for local children’s hospitals in an effort to bring hope and happiness to kids when they need it the most.

Some of the DQ locations will be doing something extra to raise funds, hope and awareness by doing some add-ons to the small cone.  Like possibly adding a dip to your cone for a dollar.  Check with your local DQ to see if they are doing something along those lines.

Celebrate Spring with some ice cream on March 19th!
