Free ice cream, good cause

Today (9/28) is Cold Stone Creamery's "World's Largest Ice Cream Social" to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  Between 5-8pm tonight, get a free little cup of Cole's Creation-- a flavor designed by a Make-A-Wish child-- and you're encouraged to make a donation in return.  Some locations will have kids' activities and other fun goings-on during the event.

Some might say this isn't exactly free.  But a) you don't have to donate (although if you don't want to, I'd urge you to leave the ice cream for those of us who will!); and b) if you're like me and have a separate budget category for giving, your $10/$5/$1/whatever brings you another step closer to your giving goal, instead of coming out of the "indulgences" section from which ice cream is usually paid for.  So it's kind of free after all!

Learn more, or find a location near you.
