Why can't everything be as great as Miracle Treat Day? Today is the day that you can buy a blizzard at participating Dairy Queens and a portion of proceeds goes to the Children's Miracle Network! You're eating ice cream and helping kids at the same time!

If you're saying to yourself, how much can eating ice cream really help, think about this. Last year, Miracle Treat Day raised over $108,000 for the University of Iowa Children's Hospital in Iowa City. Over $625,000 has been donated during the history of the campaign. Now that's A LOT of blizzards!

So take the family and head to a Dairy Queen near you today. Summer won't be here for long. Plus you'll be helping sick kids in eastern Iowa. That feels as great as the ice cream will taste.
