(WXYZ) — One million Americans will get the chance for a dose of liquid sunshine thanks to a smoothie chain's giveaway.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe says it wants to give its guests a "refreshing, momentary escape" during the COVID-19 health crisis.

Once it hits the goal of giving away one million smoothies, the company plans to donate $100,000 to the American Nurses Foundation's COVID-19 Response Fund.

Last month, the chain delivered nearly 200,000 free smoothies to first responders on the frontline of the pandemic.
