RATE IT! Dairy Queen Cares!

This coming Monday is Family Day! What may you ask is this special holiday lovingly placed in the middle of chilly February? 

Well, for *some* Canadians -- those living in the provinces of Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan -- it's a much coveted day off. The intention: to give us hard-working souls a reprieve from the drudgery of the long winter with a gift of some quality time with our loved ones. Sounds great, doesn't it? 

Unfortunately, this February freebee isn't shared with all Canucks. If you call British Columbia, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland home, you miss out. It hardly seems fair. Canadians in these provinces deserve a special day too. 

Here's where Dairy Queen graces the picture. Yep, Dairy Queen, home of the famous Blizzards that I adore. Well, DQ is a family-friendly eatery, one that celebrates fun like no other. DQ is organizing petitions in the Family Day-free provinces this coming Monday, February 16 and is putting on a smorgasbord of comfy treats to help promote the message. Stop by your neighbourhood DQ, sign the petition, and indulge in the Sweet Deals menu. Cheeseburgers, onion rings, hot dogs, side salads, several of the icy treats & more, are all included at special combo prices that will please your bank balance and your appetite. 

Heck... if the thought of bringing a Family Day holiday to your fellow Canadians doesn't give you warm & fuzzy feelings, this Dairy Queen value menu sure will! On Monday, count me in! The Sweet Deals are being served up country-wide. Now if only Family Day was too!
