Today would be a great day to have some ice cream without feeling guilty about the extra calories. Today, August 8th, is DQ's Miracle Treat Day, which means for every Blizzard sold today, a donation will be made to a Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Every participating Dairy Queen store will a donate one dollar or more with the purchase of every Blizzard all day today and tonight.

This year, the Children's Miracle Network is celebrating it's 30th anniversary and has helped countless children. Since 1983, the CMN has raised more than $4.7 billion for more than 170 children's hospitals across the country.

Their mission is simple, to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible and Dairy Queen is a big part of that effort. Just to give you an idea, around 62 children enter a Children's Miracle Network Hospital every minute.

Eating ice cream is good enough on its own, but knowing the ice cream you are eating today at DQ is helping a child...there is nothing better or sweeter than that.
