National Flip Flop Day
Wear Flip Flops. Have Fun. Give Back.
Every year on the third Friday in June, Tropical Smoothie Café celebrates National Flip Flop Day, when we raise funds to benefit for our national charity partner, Camp Sunshine. Our 2014 National Flip Flop Day was another great success! Thanks to the generosity of our customers, we exceeded our goal of raising over 600 thousand dollars for Camp Sunshine!
But we don’t do it alone. Donations made online or in a café make a real difference in the lives of the children and families that attend Camp Sunshine. Thank you to everyone who donated this year, whether it was online, in café or on National Flip Flop Day. Many deserving families will now have the opportunity to experience the magic that is Camp Sunshine. Giving back feels good, and it tastes great too!
Sure, Tropical Smoothie Café loves flip flops so much that we've created a national holiday to celebrate the shoe. But National Flip Flop Day is much more than that. What started as a day to thank our customers for their loyalty to Tropical Smoothie Café has turned into a mission to raise money for Camp Sunshine. Camp Sunshine is a very special place because it’s the only retreat in the nation to address the effects of a life threatening illness on members of the immediate family – the parents and siblings – as well as the ill children.
About Camp Sunshine
National Flip Flop Day may be over, but Camp Sunshine needs your support year round. Within its beautiful grounds, children with life-threatening illnesses and their families are invited to make magical memories together, surrounded by professionals dedicated to giving them the emotional and medical support they need. In fact, they're the only organization committed to addressing the impact that these illnesses have not just on the child who is ill, but on the entire family as well.

Wow! Thanks to your generosity, we've exceeded our 2014 goal! That's Flip Flop Fabulous!
