Each marker features a small circle that sits on a flat surface and ideally surrounds the item you don’t want to lose.

National Doughnut Day
June 7, 2013, is national doughnut day. Started by the Salvation Army on June 7, 1938, National Doughnut Day was originally a means by which to raise money for charitable efforts during the Great Depression.
The sweet holiday specifically honored female volunteers in World War I, commonly referred to as “lassies,” who provided logistical support to the troops on the front lines, serving them hot food and of course doughnuts to keep up morale. Flash forward to 2013 and we no longer have “lassies” providing doughnuts to boost morale on the front lines, but doughnut retailers across the country have taken this day as a way to give out free doughnut samples and entice us to enjoy more of their sugary goodness.
