To put it bluntly, it sucks. It just flat out, truly sucks.

It's rough to see anyone go through any kind of long-term sickness or illness, but when it's a kiddo that's involved? It hits different. And that difference means a whole larger level of suckitude. And make makes us all want to make a difference.

And we can today in the easiest way possible. Just by buying an iced coffee.

Dunkin' Iced Coffee Day

For the entirety of today -- Tuesday, May 23, 2023 -- Dunkin' is officially recognizing it as Iced Coffee Day.

Now, let's be real. That may be every day for you, but Dunkin' Iced Coffee Day is something totally different. Because today only, $1 from every single Dunkin' Iced Coffee sold in Maine is benefitting three children's hospitals in the 207.

As always, Barbara Bush Children's Hospital at Maine Medical Center in Portland will get the iced coffee love today, as well as two additional ones according to CBS 13: St. Mary's Regional Medical Center in Lewiston and Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

Dunkin' Joy in Childhood Foundation

According to Dunkin' directly, the Dunkin' Joy in Childhood Foundation was created to bring simple joys to children battling sickness, illness, or hunger and make a difference for them.

Last year, according to Dunkin', over $1.8 million was raised on Dunkin' Iced Coffee Day and spread throughout 93 local children's hospitals across the country, all through the Dunkin' Joy in Childhood Foundation.

Today, let's crush that number and get it up well over $2 million to not only help our local Maine kiddos out, but also spread the joy to the other sick children in New England and across the country, one iced coffee at a time.
