Doing good has never been sweeter!
National Lollipop Day is just a few days away on July 20 (there’s a holiday for everything, isn’t there?), and in honor of the occasion, IT’SUGAR, AKA every gal with a sweet tooth’s dream, is offering a nostalgia-inducing treat for an excellent cause: The Lollipop Theater Network IT’SUGAR Lollipop for Charity. We’re drooling already!
For each $1 lollipop sold, a portion of the proceeds will go towards expanding the Lollipop Theater Network’s efforts to offer an emotional escape to the children and families who need it most. Founded in 2001, Lollipop Theater Network believes hope and laughter are key ingredients in having the strength to fight illness and cope with hospitalization. Accordingly, the non-profit organization is dedicated to bringing the magic of movies and entertainment to children confined to hospitals due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses across the country. With the help of leading motion picture studios, the organization has screened over 275 current theatrical releases at pediatric hospital, as well as offering in-hospital programming that includes everything from interactive music sessions to special visits from celebrity guests. Stars like Gerard Butler, Ana Faris, Jordana Brewster, and Jonah Hill are all supporters—and now you can be, too!
The Lollipop Theater Network IT’SUGAR lollipop is available in blue raspberry, rainbow cherry, and watermelon patch. Snag your flavor of choice—or all three!—at IT’SUGAR locations nationwide or online at itsugar.com. To find out more about the Lollipop Theater Network, visit lollipoptheater.org.
