National Doughnut Day is devoted to women who served the doughnuts to soldiers of the Salvation Army in 1938. Everybody raises funds for Chicago’s Salvation Army that day. The goal was to help them to cope with the Great Depression. In the Second World War, Red Cross Volunteers also distributed doughnuts, and it became routine to refer to the Red Cross girls as Doughnut Dollies as well.
Usually, it celebrates on the first Friday of June each year. There are three other doughnut holidays, the origins of which are obscure. International Jelly-Filled Doughnut Day is widely recognized as June 8. National Cream-Filled Doughnut Day is celebrated on September 14. Although there is also a National Boston Cream Pie Day observed October 23rd.
The great news is that many donut shops are giving away free donuts. It is a wonderful tradition to celebrate this day and promote their bakery. Almost all shops propose classic glazed donuts with such versions as jelly filled, cocoa hazelnut filling. You have to pay only for beverages.
Please take the set of colorful Artistro paint pens to draw the glazed doughnut on the mug.
