Ave Maria - Tropical Smoothie Cafe announced its One Million Smoothie Giveaway this month, after donating over 200,000 smoothies in April to the frontline heroes in the COVID-19 pandemic. Tropical Smoothie Cafe’s newest goal is to give away 1 million free smoothies to guests across the country, with the hope of spreading smiles everywhere they can.
“We were humbled by the incredible response to the 200,000 smoothies our franchisees donated to frontline heroes nationwide,” said Charles Watson, Tropical Smoothie Cafe, LLC CEO. “The smiles we saw and stories we heard inspired us to think bigger and explore how we could do even more to support the communities we serve. Our guests have always told us our smoothies provide a refreshing, momentary escape and we figured everyone could use a little escape right now. So, we decided to extend our smoothie giveaway to everyone in America by offering 1,000,000 free smoothies.”
Tropical Smoothie Cafe also celebrated National Nurses Appreciation Month by donating $100,000 to the American Nurses Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund.
“The support Tropical Smoothie Cafe already gave to nurses and other healthcare professionals is tremendous. We appreciate them doing even more by giving away 1 million smoothies and making a generous donation to the American Nurses Foundation Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses,” said Kate Judge, executive director, American Nurses Foundation. “Their donation will help the Foundation support critical areas where frontline nurses need immediate and ongoing support like mental wellness, direct financial assistance and national advocacy.”
Guests must register for their free smoothies online, for purposes of social distancing and limiting the spread of COVID-19, by visiting www.FreeSmoothies.com, where they can sign up to receive a single-use promo code, redeemable online only, for one free smoothie. Once the online order is placed, smoothies can be picked up at their designated Tropical Smoothie Cafe location.
