It’s National Flip Flop Day. Here’s how you can get a free smoothie

It’s time to dust off those flip flops and head out to your local Tropical Smoothie for a free smoothie.

Today (June 15), from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tropical Smoothie will be giving out free drinks to customers who come in wearing flip flops at participating locations.

Call ahead to find out if your Tropical Smoothie is offering this promotion.

According to the company’s website, customers will receive a free 16-ounce Sunshine Smoothie if they come in the store wearing flip flops.

The company created National Flip Flop Day after partnering in 2008 with Camp Sunshine, an organization that provides retreats for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families, according to the camp’s website.

That partnership (the past 10 years) raised more than $5 million and helped more than 1,000 families, according to the website.

Tropical Smoothie’s 2018 goal is to raise $1 million to send 400 families to camp.
