Blizzards® to Hit North America in August for a Good Cause: Proceeds from Dairy Queen® Blizzard Treats Sold on August 10 Benefit Children’s Miracle Network
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) July 27, 2006
The forecast for major blizzard activity throughout the United States and Canada on Thursday, Aug. 10, 2006, is not about the weather. It’s all about helping kids in need, as Dairy Queen® hosts the first-ever North American “Miracle Treat Day” to benefit Children’s Miracle Network.
During Miracle Treat Day, participating Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill® locations in North America will donate proceeds from every Blizzard® Treat sold to Children’s Miracle Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children’s hospitals. All funds raised stay in the local community.
“We set the stage with successful Miracle Treat Days in Canada and have now expanded our efforts in the U.S. for the first time,” said Michael Keller, chief brand officer for International Dairy Queen. “We look forward to a blizzard of activity on August 10 as we raise money for a good cause.”
Instead of snow-filled blizzards, Dairy Queen will serve up a variety of Blizzard Flavor Treats during Miracle Treat Day, including the August Blizzard of the Month, Oreo®. The Oreo Blizzard — made with creamy DQ® soft serve and Oreo cookie pieces — debuted in late 1985, the Blizzard’s inaugural year, and to this day remains the most popular flavor. The average retail price of the Oreo Blizzard is $ 2.59 for the 12 oz., $ 3.00 for the 16 oz., and $ 3.50 for the 21 oz.
Dairy Queen has been a supporter of Children’s Miracle Network since 1984, raising more than $ 59 million during that time.

International Dairy Queen (IDQ), which is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn., develops licenses and services a system of more than 5,600 Dairy Queen® stores in the United States, Canada and other foreign countries, offering dairy desserts, hamburgers, hot dogs and beverages. IDQ is part of the Berkshire Hathaway family, a company owned by Warren Buffett, the legendary investor and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. Following the successful roll out of DQ® Grill & Chill®, Dairy Queen’s quick-service food concept that features an all new expanded menu and newly designed restaurant interiors, Dairy Queen began testing the DQ® Orange Julius® concept in August 2005. DQ Orange Julius blends a sleek, new look with the feel of a traditional ice cream treat shop and offers an expanded treat menu that includes traditional DQ favorites, the Orange Julius line of smoothies and fruit drinks, and new signature desserts and sundaes.

Lately, I’ve been reading <em>The Warren Buffett Way</em> by Robert G. Hagstrom. Hagstrom writes about the fascinatingly simple principles that have guided Warren Buffett’s decision making in investing over that past 60 years that have allowed him to accumulate such immense wealth.
Warren Buffett’s formula for investing fundamentally has not changed since his first fund was established over 50 years ago. Buffett never gets distracted by fads or promises of explosive returns. So called experts have often criticised him for his stubborness and his “old fashioned-ness” and yet he’s always had the last laugh when their bubbles burst.
Whether he’s buying stocks or buying entire companies, he has the mindset that he is going to keep that business forever. Therefore he looks at the business both quantitatively and qualitatively to be certain that he’s making the right decision.
Some say, Buffett spends 8 hours a day at his office, reading annual reports and trade journals with the goal to make just one good investment decision every year. Just one!
He does a ton of research on a company and its executives to make sure they both have integrity because he wants to be certain that what he invests in will continue to grow and prosper long into the future.
In the book <em>The Warren Buffett Way</em>, Robert Hagstrom writes…
“He looks for companies he understands, with consistent earnings history and favourable long-term prospects, showing good return on equity with little debt, that are operated by honest and competent people…”
Network marketers ought to use the same approach when it come to choosing the company they want to build their long term residual income with. Work hard and build it once. Then enjoy the lifestyle. That’s the Big Promise of MLM. You DO NOT want to have to build it over, and over again.
If you just want to build it once, there are three things that are <em>critical</em> to your long term success in an opportunity.
<li>It’s important that you understand the <em>business model</em> of your company.</li>
<li>It’s important that your company has consistent earnings and its products have <em>long term residual value.</em></li>
<li>It’s important that your company is run by <em>good people who are honest and have integrity.</em></li>
Unfortunately, most people are building their MLM businesses “by gosh and by golly” without understanding any of these fundamental aspects.
The strange thing about this business is not many people do their due diligence on an opportunity that could dramatically change their life. They think “Oh, it’s just a hundred bucks to sign up… what have I got to lose?” It doesn’t become apparent until they lose the downline that they’ve worked so hard to build.
Too many people are attracted by the hype and the glitter and because of that, too many people have been burned in this industry by start up companies that explode and then collapse after two years.
Too many people have had their dreams destroyed by scams disguised as legitimate network marketing opportunities because they didn’t understand the business model and they didn’t know the guys running the operation were crooks.
The third point is the most important. The company has to be run by good people with integrity, with distributor’s interests at heart.
When looking at your next opportunity be sure to know who’s at the helm. Look at their history. This will really give you a good insight as to whether the opportunity is a scam, and if the company will be around for the long term. If the executives of the company are not listed on the company’s website, RUN!
Thankfully, today you have a very powerful tool to assist you in doing your due diligence. It’s called GOOGLE. Please use it.
A little research can save you from years of struggle and set you on the right path to long term residual income in MLM.
Are you frustrated, humilitated with your lack of success in MLM? Have lost lots of money? Proper mentoring will put you on the right path. Learn how to build a profitable network marketing business in less than 1 year, with industry secrets most networkers will never know at The Profitable Networker.

A Quick review on how Warren Buffett pick and review stocks he buys. This is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What is Network Marketing? Learn why Network Marketing is the business of choice for the 21st Century. Warren Buffett, Donald Trump, and Robert Kiyosaki all believe in the fundamentals of Network Marketing.
What is Network Marketing & Direct Sales? If you’re new to Network Marketing or Direct Sales, or you may be looking for a profitable business opportunity you need to know more about this industry. You may be very sceptical about Network Marketing or Direct Sales, and believe that it’s all a scam, or a pyramid scheme. I can understand why you might be sceptical; it’s not unusual to feel that way. But if you have a big dream of being financially independent some day, what would take for you to achieve this in your current plan, have you a plan B?
Now you’ve probably heard of Warren Buffett, he’s one of the most successful investors in history, and he’s also one of the most conservative. In 2008 he was ranked by Forbes Magazine as the richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of approximately $62 billion. During his career he’s invested heavily in many Network Marketing and Direct Sales companies, for a good reason.
The biggest problem for large corporations have throughout the world, including America is the distribution of their goods and services, they need to get their product to the customer and Network Marketing/Direct Sales is a low cost alternative way to do that. So why do so many large corporations this method of distribution?
The distribution channel for their product to the customer costs them time, money and effort. Depots are needed to store the goods, vehicles and staff are needed to distribute, them, Real Estate needs to be purchased to be able to market their goods, the list is endless, and unfortunately the customer will be paying a higher prices for this service.
Network Marketing is a clean and valid distribution channel that allows the money to go to the people not the distribution channel; businesses pay you to get the word out to your network. As I mentioned in my first article, ‘Lean How to be Successful in Network Marketing’ No 1 of 6. We already do Network Marketing every day, we just don’t get paid for it, so why not join an opportunity today and start building your future.
There has never been a better time to get involved. At the moment there is downsizing in the corporate world, people are looking for an opportunity. The Work from Home trend is also very popular, which is why there is an increase in people looking at Network Marketing or Direct Sales.
