Celebrate the first day of spring with a free ice cream cone from Dairy Queen!

All day today, March 20th, the ice cream chain will be giving out a free small cone of vanilla ice cream to customers at all of their [non-mall] locations, nationwide. Yes, ice cream is usualy associated with summer but really... who's gonna say no to FREE ice cream?!

Dairy Queen has been doing this promotion for the past three years, not only to welcome the longer days ahead but also to support and raise money for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. While you don't have to pay for your cone people are encouraged to donate towards the cause because all of the dollars donated go to local children's hospitals. So all of the donations collected in West Michigan will stay in West Michigan!

According to Today, more than $200,000 was donated towards Children's Miracle Network Hospitals last year alone.

Remember, only one (free) cone per customer. I know that sounds rough, especially if you love are addicted to ice cream like I am, but buying an extra cone or blizzard never hurt anyone ;)
