For Those About to Eat Donuts, We Salute You

Randy's Donuts

Once upon a time, there was a man with a simple but beautiful dream. Flickr member and patriot Jake Rome wanted donuts. Free donuts. Free donuts from Flickr. With this noble cause, the We Demand Donuts group was born.

Donuts NOW!!!  
Twice As Annoying  
We Demand Doughnuts!

More than a year later, we’ve heard your voices, and have decided to help make Jake’s dream come true. This Wednesday, April 16th at 11:00am, we will be providing donuts for We Demand Donuts members in San Francisco. If you’re in the area, RSVP on Upcoming and then stop by for some fried doughy goodness.

Not local to the San Francisco Bay Area? Don’t fret. More donut day meetups are being organized all over the world by Flickr members — join them to meet up with some fellow Flickrites for a donut.

Whether you can make it to a meetup in person or not, we hope that you will participate by uploading photos or video of you enjoying a donut on April 16th — tag it “day of the donut”.
