Spring is right around the corner, and Dairy Queen wants to help you usher it in.

The restaurant is turning last year’s “Fanniversary” success into a way to support a good cause.

In partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, DQ is hosting another annual Free Cone Day on March 15.

This year, stop into any participating Dairy Queen or DQ Grill & Chill location and make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network, and you’ll get a free small vanilla soft-serve cone!

That’s “with the signature curl on top,” CMN of Orlando notes, in case you needed additional incentive.

No donation is officially required to get your free cone.

But c’mon. Do it for the children.

Where to Go on Free Cone Day

DQ locations across the U.S. are participating, but we recommend getting in touch with your local store to confirm the promotion before showing up with your sweet tooth.

Free ice cream and the warm, fuzzy feeling of helping kids in need? The days are starting to feel a little brighter already.

Your Turn: Blizzard, brownie sundae or a Dilly Bar? What’s your favorite way to eat DQ ice cream?
