National Flip Flop Day®
Wear Flip Flops. Have Fun. Give Back.
This year we set out to challenge ourselves for National Flip Flop Day® 2015, a Tropical Smoothie Café holiday on the third Friday in June when we raise funds to benefit our charity partner Camp Sunshine. Our goal was to raise $1 Million Dollars for the children with life-threatening illnesses and their families that attend Camp Sunshine.
Thanks to the generosity and continuous support of our customers, we were able to meet our goal and donate $1 MILLION DOLLARS to Camp Sunshine this year! Tropical Smoothie Café crew members, franchisees, corporate employees and customers all came together to Play to Win for Camp Sunshine. WE DID IT! We are proud to say that over the past 9 years we have raised 3.7 million dollars for Camp Sunshine.
We don't do this alone. All donations, big and small, 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 a café or on National Flip Flop Day®. Many deserving families will now have the opportunity to experience happiness and togetherness at Camp Sunshine.
Stay tuned! National Flip Flop Day® 2016 will be on Friday, June 17th!
The Story Behind Our National Flip Flop Day® Logo
This year we had a great time partnering with Camp Sunshine for the first National Flip Flop Day® Logo Design Contest. All campers were invited to submit creative logo designs to be used in our 2015 National Flip Flop Day® promotional materials. We asked the children to reflect on their experience with Camp Sunshine and Tropical Smoothie Café and the designs we received were very special. The two winning logos we selected from Jack and Halie, represent the importance of Camp Sunshine to the children and families that attend.
Thank you to our winners and all logo designers for this exciting opportunity to bring Camp Sunshine to life in each of our cafes.

About Camp Sunshine
Within the beautiful grounds of Camp Sunshine, children 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 are the only organization in the nation committed to addressing the effects of a life-threatening illness on not only the child who is ill, but the entire family.
Each year, Camp Sunshine offers countless families the opportunity to put aside the stress and severity of having a child with an illness and just have fun. It costs $2,000 to send one family to camp for a week, but thanks to the compassion of people like you, these families are able to attend completely free of charge.
Take It From the Families.
