Cinnabon is offering a free Cinnabon Classic Roll to any nurse who shows his or her healthcare badge at a participating U.S. Cinnabon during National Nurses Week, May 6-12, 2012. There is a limit of one free roll per nurse during the week; no special coupon is needed for the deal. Airport and travel plaza Cinnabon locations are not participating in the promotion.
Kat Cole, president of Cinnabon, says, “We love serving those who serve others and hope the aroma of our Makara cinnamon reminds the nurses how special they are as they enjoy our products during this well-deserved week.”
The Cinnabon Nurse Appreciation Week promotion is an annual event, done in partnership with The DAISY Foundation. The Daisy Foundation was established by Bonnie and Mark Barnes to recognize nurses. Their son, Patrick, who died of an auto-immune disease in 1999, enjoyed Cinnabons and always made sure to share them with his nurses. As a result, when the Barnes established the foundation, they felt that Cinnabon was a natural partner. The Foundation has given DAISY Awards to over 16,000 nurses since it was established in January 2000. In addition to the financial award, each winning nurse receives a free Cinnabon for each staff member on their unit.
