DailyDirt: It's National Doughnut Day!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Today is National Doughnut Day, and to celebrate, many shops -- like Dunkin' Donuts, Krispy Kreme, and Tim Hortons -- are giving away free doughnuts. A "national doughnut day" just sounds like another holiday made up for businesses to make more money, but it was actually established in 1938 by the Salvation Army to raise money during the Great Depression and to honor the female volunteers who served meals (and doughnuts) to soldiers on the front lines during World War I. Here's some more doughnut-related news. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.
