The chain's annual National Flip Flop Day serves as a fundraiser for Camp Sunshine, a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families located in Maine.

“We started National Flip Flop Day as a fun summer event, but the ultimate goal is much greater than free smoothies,” said Mike Rotondo, Tropical Smoothie's chief executive officer, in a statement. “We’re raising money to help families who are facing life’s worst circumstances.”

Since 2007, the fundraiser has raised more than $5.3 million for the camp, enough for more than 2,100 families to attend the camp for free. This year's goal is to raise $1 million.

Customers can honor Flip Flop day and make a donation to Camp Sunshine at the Café. The donations are optional, but it is a really great cause to support.
