Buy a coffee. Send a kid to camp.

It’s Camp Day at Tim Horton’s. All coffee sales are being put toward the Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation in support of their network of summer camps for kids. Lest you think this is all for Canadian kids to go to camps in the far north woods, there’s a camp in Campbellsville, Kentucky. So go get a coffee already!

For those who are too far from Canada to have a Tim’s, it’s a chain of donut shops named for a prominent Canadian hockey player from the 1950s into the 1970s. Tim’s is Canada’s largest restaurant chain, according to Wikipedia, and has over 500 locations in the northeastern U.S. too.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

  1. You forgot the part about it being the best coffee EVER.

    Great info!

    I didn’t know that it was named after a hockey player, but I knew that Wendy’s bought it a few years ago (just before they appeared in the US).
