Miracle Treat Day

For several years, prior to moving to moving to our current area, Christine and I were in the habit of making Thursday nights something of a treat night to help close out the week. We'd normally order food to be delivered from a restaurant called House of Lasagna (on Merivale road in Ottawa. Try their...well...lasagna). Hmmm...good!

We've now moved too far away to have them deliver, so we've gotten out of the habit in the few weeks that we've been in the place. Frankly, if it was up to me, I'd make the trip but the Mrs seems far less enthusiastic nowadays.

Ah, but I think I can talk her into going out to DQ for a Blizzard! This coming Thursday is Miracle Treat Day, during which...

Blizzard proceeds from participating North America locations will benefit your Children's Miracle Network hospital. Proceeds are sale price minus cost of ingredients.

And about the Children's Miracle Network...

Children's Miracle Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children¹s hospitals across North America. Each year the 170 Children's Miracle Network hospitals provide the finest medical care, life-saving research and preventative education to help millions of kids overcome diseases and injuries of every kind.

It appears as though the local Children's Hospital is involved so come Thursday, I believe we'll need little convincing to treat ourselves for charity.
