Limeades for Learning


Each year, teachers spend nearly $1,200 of their own money to effectively teach their students, and Sonic wants to help. They’ve partnered with DonorsChoose.org, a national leading non-profit Web site to fulfill projects requested by teachers. Projects range from soccer balls needed for gym class to ESL materials to help children read to computers needed for a science lab. If a teacher needs specific materials or resources, they can sign up as a SONIC Teacher at LimeadesForLearning.com and register their project online.

One of the unique benefits of DonorsChoose.org is that every day people become citizen philanthropists by donating to their favorite teacher’s project. Limeades for Learning is similar in that it empowers Sonic customers to take part and direct which teacher projects receive funding. From Aug. 31 to Oct. 1, customers are encouraged to purchase any frozen or fountain drink at Sonic and participate in the program. When you order a drink, each cup will be specially marked with a sticker that contains a unique code used to vote for a teacher project on LimeadesForLearning.com. Each week for five weeks, teacher projects with the most votes will be funded by SONIC up to $500,000.00. If customers want to continue to give, they will have an additional opportunity to donate money to their favorite teacher’s projects.




I have both a $25 MySonic gift card AND a $25 DonorsChoose.org card for 2 winners! Just leave me a comment here with your favorite Sonic drink and I'll choose a winner on Friday, the 18th. Good luck!

My favorite Sonic drink is a Route 44 Diet Cherry Limeade with extra cherry! It makes my mouth water just thinking about it!!!

Keesler Chaos said...

I'm loving the strawberry sprite this summer. It's been a different flavor each summer, so I can't say it's my all time fav, but for now...yum!

Tiffeny said...

my fav is the strawberry bananna smoothie.

luwanna3 said...

I LOVE the Minute Maid Cranberry Slush!!! ah, man! Now, I am craving one . . . :)

My favorite sonic drink is a vanilla Dr. Pepper. It's the only time I ever think to get a Dr. Pepper. Mmmm.... SO yummy!!

pednurse said...

Diet Vanilla Coke....simple pleasure. :)

Just a plain cherry limeaide is my FAVORITE!!

Jacqui said...

Strawberry Limeade, hands down. Satisfied some intense pregnancy cravings earlier this summer.

Michelle said...

Perfect timing -- I have a PTO meeting tomorrow morning, and I just added this to the agenda to discuss. Thanks, Dawn!

And my favorite drink? Cherry Limeade, of course. I think I need to go get one tomorrow now. Thanks a lot!

Jennifer said...

Good ole' orange is my fav!

Judy K said...

Diet Cherry Limeade!!

Gene and Annie said...

I had my first one this summer and I am in love now!!!! I haven't tried too many flavors yet but I love the Cherry limeade!!

Kerri S. said...

LOL!! That was GREAT!!! Can I say there ice. I love the little ice. But if it has to be a drink I will say diet coke or mabye the coconut cream pie shake.

Red Lotus said...

Ocean water has been my favorite since I was 14 years old!

Nikki said...

This summer it's been the Strawberry limeaide chiller. The best!

Tadow said...

The only drink I've ever gotten at Sonic wasn't really a drink. It was an ice cream, but I'll pretend it was a drink. It was the Sweetheart Brownie Blast or whatever a couple years ago. It was SO GOOD!

Anonymous said...

Cherry Limeade is my all time favorite....in fact I haven't tried anything else there - why ruin a good thing? And your video totally looks like a Sonic commercial - you need to send it to them! Love the bloopers!

Karen G. said...

Let's see...My fave is a Strawberry Smoothie. I know, a little boring! My mom can't pass a Sonic without getting a Cherry Limeade even though she always says she doesn't need it! And my kids LOVE the slushies!

Cherry Limeade is my fav.

Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper Slushes are the best!

Chick Hatchers said...

I grew up drinking cherry-limeade in Oklahoma. Sonic is everywhere where I grew up! I have been without an accessible Sonic for nearly 20 years! Nothing compares to their onion rings with cheese and a cherry-limeade!!! I just might have to drive out to Aurora and get me some this weekend! (I know, it's worth the nearly hour drive, but I still haven't done it since it opened. For some place I miss so much, you'd think I'd be there all the time. If I were single, I would. But not with the family. Too much else to do.) But really, I think we're headed out there this weekend now!

Kitty said...

Diet Lime Limeade!

Crystal in Italy said...

My favorite is a tie between strawberry limeade (Route 44 of course!) and Vanilla Dr. Pepper. They satisfy the thirst and make me smile.

Meredith said...

Hilarious video!!

I love their chocolate shakes, they are soo yummy. For regular drinks a Route 44 Ice Water. Yeah, I'm wierd like that-no soda! for me.

Sonic has the best ice ever.

~Meredith F.

Ashleigh said...

rt 44 cherry limeade! with an extra cherry:)

Jessi said...

I love their ice. I don't care what I'm drinking as long as it has little cylinders of ice!

Slatsette said...

Mmmm..... Dr Pepper with cherry and vanilla added in. Nomnomnom

Christina in Vegas said...

Love love love the strawberry slushies! So yummo!

Shannon said...

I work at Sonic. We have people who are buying drinks expressly for this purpose. People who wouldn't have otherwise bought drinks. It makes for a very busy me in drive-thru, but it's all worth it.

Mandy said...

I'm just a plain old Jane loving the Route 44 Coke. I'm loving this contest because my mother in law is a Resource Teacher for an elementary here and she does spend a lot of her own money... which teachers usually don't have. I am also from Utah which is the 50th in per pupil spending. Awesome hu? Last place. No wonder teachers always have to spend their own money. Utah's education budget is a joke. Thanks for letting me rant. :)

Becky McVey said...

Strawberry Cream Slush!

Actually, I was just looking in your blog for your Sonic adventure when it first opened in your area. It just opened outside of Boston and it took us 2 hours to get in the first day, then an hour the next day (yeah, that's right, we went twice!). My hubby even went one night at 1:00 and they turned him away because the line was too long to get through before they closed at 2! Hopefully it will calm down a bit soon so we can go more ... yum!

Dawn K. in Michigan said...

Strawberry lemonade slushies are the best. Can't wait until the new Sonic is built, so I don't have to drive so far to get one.

Queen of pink in a house of blue said...

oh, i love the lemon berry slush! YUMMY!
i agree the ice is GREAT! after surgery once, i couldn't eat anything, but could have water...but had to sip it or chew ice. i had hubby go get 2 route 44 cups of ICE from sonic! they probably thought he was silly, but i didn't care! heehee

Anonymous said...

Don't know what my favorite is. We just got one in a town near here. Sounds good though. What should I try?

Anita in Indiana

Heather said...

I've never had a Sonic drink, but I'm stunned teachers spend $1,200 of their hard-earned cash on resources for their pupils??

naiadkitty said...

If shakes count as drinks, then I love the peanutbutter shakes! If they don't, then I'm in the cherry limeade camp :)

Steff said...

I am so excited sonic is finally in chicago! YUMMMMM!!!! love it!!!

Deirdrea said...

I'm a raspberry iced tea kind of girl. I really get it just so I can chew on the awesome ice though.

Keri Jackson said...

raspberry limeade!

Rachel said...

I love no need a cherry limeade on some days to get me through. I love happy hour with half priced drinks. I take my four kids and let them each pick their own flavor slushie and then I can justify my large cherry limeade. yum!

Darlene S said...

The first Sonic in our county just opened up about 4 weeks ago. I can't wait to go and try the cherry limeade!!! Haven't had it yet, but I know that will be my favorite!

echernick said...

It's not on the menu, but if you ask, they will make a rootbeer slush. They kept me alive during my first pregnancy.

Mynde said...

Cherry Limeade- but usually diet coke!

Gayle said...

Cherry Limeade!!

Jennifer in Wisconsin said...

We finally found a Sonic in our area after seeing commercials for months. I tried the cherry limeade and now I am hooked. My husband likes the green apple thing (weird). thanks for this info, I am passing it on to our teachers.

Jennifer said...

We love sonic. Even my 2 year old will ask to go to Sonic. I usually get a vanilla Dr. Pepper.

Ruth said...

Okay so here in MI Sonic just opened and with 4 kids I haven't quite made it there yet, so I sure could use the gift card as an excuse. I don't know my favorite flavor :( BTW, your video looks just like the commercials with the shot from the front of the car, funny!
Also I told you you'd be fine, tums!!

Cindy said...

Wow. I'm so jealous! Why don't we have these in Canada? Or Ontario? Or in the poor cousin to the east of the GTA? We're always the last to get everything :(

These all sound so yummy -- and I had no idea I was missing out. Maybe I need a trip to Buffalo?

Gail V. said...

Diet Cherry Limeade!!! Love, Love, Love it....and I don't like cherries....strange, huh?

Gail V.

Rhonda said...

Diet Limeade makes my life complete. Not very exotic, but veryvery refreshing.

Brooke said...

strawberry vanilla Dr Pepper!!! Though a nice cherry limeade is good too :)

Kelli said...

Strawberry limeade.... oh yum! My mouth is watering! My college roommate and I used to get drinks from Sonic about once a week - I haven't had one in over a year and that makes me sad! It just went on their website and found out that the closest one to me is 30 miles away... not too close but definitely worth a drive some day SOON!

sandyn said...

We just got sonic in Minnesota! yea!! i am really digging the cherry lime aid. heck, i didnt know it came in diet!! good to know! nice to know we can help out the teachers.

SUchipmunk said...

I looooooove the Cherry Limeades! Now they are diet, since I try to be a little healthier, but still delicious!

Pam from alertandorientedx4 said...

Mocha Java Chiller. Party in your mouth.

Alexis Brown said...

my favorite is the strawberry limeade chilllers! Im so glad they finally opened in NJ!

lovinsanta said...

I so.... love the Cherry Limeades. When I had my son my husband would call and ask if I needed anything. Every day he would have to get me a Cherry Limeade...they are the BEST! 1/2 price also rocks. It is great we now have a way to help our teachers out as well.

Swartzmomto3 said...

I love the Route 44 Cranberry slush!!

Stephanie R said...

Oooo... I have to pick one?? Either a chocolate strawberry limeade, or a chocolate cherry dr. pepper! Yummy

Southside Bridget said...

Thanks for correcting her- - OF COURSE it's "pop"!!
Love me some Cherry Limeade!

Amyb99 said...

Vanilla Dr. Pepper - I LOVE Dr. Pepper :)

Jenny said...

Cherry Limeade...yum! We go to Sonic after my sons' baseball games, such a fun tradition!

Kristin of course said...

Cherry Coke. From Sonic. There is nothing else better. Mmm, sonic. I can't imagine living in a place where Sonic doesn't exist.

Steffers said...

Route 44 Strawberry Limeade is the best stuff on Earth - Forget Snapple!!! This is an awesome program! I wish there was one closer to me!!

Oh - If we are going the shakes route - I love their banana cream pie shakes too.

Susan said...

My favorite Sonci drink is a Route 44 Diet Cherry Limeade! YUMMM!!! It's even better at 1/2 price during Happy Hour too.

Shannon Smith said...

I have two favorite Sonic drinks - Strawberry Limeade and Dr. Pepper with vanilla!
Please pick me! I love Sonic!

Dayna said...

First, my favorite is a Rt. 44 cherry coke with extra ice. Love the video! I've been talking up this program in Oklahoma, trying to get more teachers on board and encouraging people to go online and vote. It's a great excuse to go to Sonic!

Laura B. said...

Cherry Limeaides are the best!

Chris said...

Because of your blog, I wanted to find a Sonic and buy a cherry-limeade "shake". I had my chance last month...I was in Alabama three days, and had shakes for my lunch two of those days. One night I had one for dessert. We have no Sonic around here but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the cherry limeade shakes!!! Chris in PA

Jennifer from Hurricane said...

My absolute favorit is Ocean Water, in Route 44 of course. Sprite with a shot of coconut syrup. YUM!!

Stampin_melissa said...

OMGoodness the bloopers were awesome! Root beer in the tin lid was hysterical! I don't have a fav drink at Sonic, in fact I don't think I've ever been to a Sonic. *gasp* IF I did it would probably be a chocolate shake, especially if they offer them for 1/2 off during Happy Hour!

Amanda E said...

ooooohhh - I could go for a strawberry banana smoothie right about now - yummy! My fav!

Hey Teach! said...

Lemon Slush is my fav. to sip by the pool with a diet limeade coming in a close second.
I have had a project funded by donorschoose two years ago. Its an awesome site, because of them we made twenty six literacy bags for our special needs kids to take home on a weekly basis. The kids love them!

Step Monster said...

can I say that my fav drink is none of them because I have yet to try them. Our closest sonic is over an hour drive so I have yet to get there.....maybe a gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket would help!

Sonic is one of my most frequented spots. And goodness knows the teachers need all the help they can muster.

Thanks for entertaining us with your blog.

OMG! I loved the bloopers! How long did it take to tape that?

I have always liked the cherry limeades but my daughter talked me into trying the strawberry limeades and now I think they are my favorite. I just had a strawberry limeade ice cream drink last week. I wish it was summer a little longer so I could drink more of those!

Michelle said...

I love a very large cherry limeade! And I love the ice at Sonic as well. Yummy!

Anonymous said...

This hilarious! Very well done - just like the Sonic commercials!

Brooke said...

Strawberry Limeade or a grape slush are my favorites.

rskmom said...

Orange cream slush - yummo!

Jessica Willis said...

definitely cherry lime sprite. yummy!

kimbalaya said...

Lemon Berry Slushie for me!

Although I enjoyed the Cherry Limeade Chiller I had earlier this summer, too.

Katina said...

Usually I love the cherry limeade, but lately I've been digging the Strawberry Limeade Chiller. I'm pregnant, and I keep telling my husband that's what I'm craving!

Val O from Ohio said...

Well, I've only been to a Sonic once because there are none around where I live! Rumor has it we may get one 1/2 hour north of where I live!!! I've only had the Cherry Limeade, but it was delish!

Lisa said...

Mine is the watermelon sluch, but it HAS to be ONLY HALF the amount of syrup..When I was preggers hubby had to go on a slush run so many times they knew him and my order by heart...

Anissa said...

Cherry Limeade! Though I've been meaning to try more flavors :)

Bekah said...

I could SO USE that Sonic gift card. My son had a major accident this past Saturday where his lip was split in two and he lost his two front teeth! My child has literally been living on Sonic Blue Coconut Slush's for the past 4 days. I buy 2 a day and keep them in the fridge to slowly melt so he can have one as soon as he finishes the first one. Sonic has been my new best friend with this injury because at least he is drinking something! We have also been faithfully entering and voting for the Limeades for Learning. I think our count is up to at least a dozen slush's so far this week!

Leslie said...

Love, love , love the Strawberry Limeade! Especially during happy hour!

Jennifer said...

CHERRY DR PEPPER!!

Meg said...

I just learned they opened a Sonic not far from me in Lake Zurich. Who knew? I love the Cherry Limeades and credit my college friend Kelly for getting me hooked.

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

So so so funny! LOVE the bloopers. I haven't been to Sonic yet...there is a new one about 20 miles from me, so I'll be going there before too long!

mom2cors said...

cherry limeade please.....I am now thinking I need to try a slush to try to build a tower....It will all be good if kids can learn in the process

Caroline from Memphis said...

My favorite sonic drink is the orange cream slush... YUMMY!! I think this Limeades for Learning is a great idea!!

Sori said...

I like the frozen strawberry slush, but if I'm eating I always order a cherry limeade.

pattymerry said...

I love Vanilla Dr. Peppers!

Anonymous said...

I have two favorites, Peach tea for when it's blazing hot and Vanilla Dr. Pepper the rest of the time. I think the LimeadesforLearning is such a great idea. Just found out a local teacher here signed up and we are trying to help her out. Thanks for the chance Dawn.

Missi said...

Strawberry-Banana Smoothie or just plain ol Diet Dr. Pepper. I love their ice. Last year we had issues w/ our son not remembering homework so I started rewarding him for remembering to bring everything home all week on Fridays w/ a drink from the half price Happy Hour menu. He loved it & so did his sister who he earned one for too.

I looooooooove Cherry Limeades. Oh how lucky my husband is that i did not discover their yumminess while i was pregnant.

I sure could get a lot of limeades for $25...maybe if the family is lucky I could get them one too.

Denise M. said...

Cherry Limeade is the best! My second choice is an apple slushie.

I love the Cherry Limeade also and that is usually my first choice. The Cream Slush in Orange is really good also.

Julie said...

I don't drink sodas, but I sure do love their ice. So my favorite Sonic drink is a route 44 cup of ice. Does that count?

I keep telling hubby that I want a sonic ice machine for Christmas.

Stephanie said...

I looove loooove looooove diet coke with vanilla. I feel like I am drinking a coke float... with the taste of a diet drink, of course :)

alayna said...

Diet Dr. Pepper with vanilla and cream, but I also love the regular ol cherry limeades, but I've convinced myself that I'm being "good" with the diet dr. pepper, forget about the vanilla & cream! And the diet cherry limeades really stink! Just my opinion.

Tara L M said...

I like a Rt 44 Limeade anytime! thanks Dawn!

Anonymous said...

I love vanilla dr pepper. Umm that makes me want one now. I would also like to say thank you for your support. I had a child kick me today and tell me that she say her mom's boyfriend do it. I then found out that he had beaten her mother so bad they she suffered a brain injury. I just wish all of my students could have supportive parents like you. Thank you. A. Jones

Tina said...

Diet Cherry Limeade with extra cherries ROCKS MY WORLD!!!


...Thanks Sonic!!!!!, because my hubby (the elementary teacher) spends WAY TOO MUCH money out of pocket on his classroom. Just try asking the office for a highlighter or red correcting pen, HA! Lamination for the expensive posters we bought...HA! Limited to 20 feet per year, only on Thursdays! BAH!!!.. :o)

rankin1997 said...

Just a plain Diet Coke.

TnT's Mom said...

Strawberry Limeade! We don't have Sonic here but I made my DH find one when we were in Florida because I wanted to try it! Yeah, once we found one about 15 minutes from where we were staying I made him take me back like 4 times to get Strawberry Limeades!

Anonymous said...

My fave for the last 20+ years has been vanilla Dr. Pepper. When you're having a bad day, there's nothing like a vanilla Dr. Pepper and a swing to get your mind off of it. Granted, it's the extreme nausea from swinging after you've drunk so much van. Dr. Pepper that distracts you, but at least you forgot what was initially troubling you! ;) Lisa

Flower Girl said...

Cherry Limeade!

Lissete said...

I love the Cherry Limeade! also like the Strawberry slushie. Yum!

Can't really say I have a favorite Sonic drink, but I LOVE their crushed ice!

It's hard to choose just one but my fave is strawberry limeade.

since the closest sonic to me is in chicago i had to wait until we went to kentucky over labor day. i have to say the caramel milkshake is to die for!!! im craving one now :( they need to hurry up and put in the sonic they promised us.

ClistyB said...

Route 44 Diet Cherry Limeade OR sometimes I will let the employees make me a Diet Coke with whatever flavor they want to throw in. cranberry is guuuuud

Karen Marie said...

Cherry Limeade! *drool*

Laura G said...

Haven't tried one yet, but you have my mouth watering for a cherry limeade. No Sonic in my neck of the woods; may have to drive near yours to get one if I win! Thanks for the laughs...

What's not to love?! My favorite has to be the cherry limeade!

Teresa said...

Diet coke from Sonic everyday at least once! Thanks Dawn!

Donna_in_OKC said...

I LOVE SONIC! Fortunately, they're everywhere so I can always stop and pick up a yummy cherry limeade. Mmmm - think I'll get one now.

Oh, and the ICE is fabulous!

MMM. Diet Cherry limeade. Must get baby up and go directly to sonic.....

Pam said...

I had my first cherry limeade this weekend. It was good

Sas said...

Strawberry Limeade is my fav! Thanks for always keeping me entertained Dawn! I'm the oldest of five kids and can relate to a lot of your stories. :)

Nicole said...

My fav drink is the grape creamsicle. Oh it is so good and lucky me, we have a Sonic about 5 min away :)

Kristine said...

I haven't really tried much there yet. Even though there's about 4 of them just in our city. I had the root beer float that was free a couple months ago, and that was pretty good. Give me a chance to try some more flavors!

SS said...

my favorite Sonic would have to be the Route 44 Strawberry Limeade (especially during Happy Hour) - my daughter got me hooked on these during the summer - they are delicious !!!

Rebecca said...

My favorite drink isn't actually a drink. Me and my friend would go every morning and for $0.28 each we would both get a Rt 44 cup of ice. It was the small square pouches of crunchyness that we loved! But if something had to go in there then Cherry Pepsi with tons of real cherries. YUM!

Shanna S. said...

Love me some Sonic! My favorite drink is a large cherry Dr. Pepper.

Cranberry Slush is my favorite drink at sonic :) I LOVE it!

I love the Lemon Berry Slush, but I usually need a caffeine fix so I get a ginormous Diet Cherry Coke.

On the way to school I enjoy the Apple Juice Slush. After work (and this is truly my favorite Sonic drink) I go for the Lemonberry Slush (Lemon and Strawberry--yummy!!).

Heidi @ Tayterjaq's Rebels said...

We don't have a Sonic here YET! It's in the process of being built and I CAN'T WAIT!
When we happen to find one in our travels, I am ususally pretty boring with a Dr. Pepper but I can't wait to try the slushies!!

maestraward said...

I love strawberry limeade!

I needed one last Friday when I was told I was being moved from kindergarten to first grade after teaching for three weeks! I cried. I had already bonded with my students. I'm enjoying my new class but I have very few first grade materials!

DONORS CHOOSE AND SONIC are the best!

I love Dr. Pepper and Sonic has the BEST fountain dr. p EVER. It is the perfect mix of CO2 and syrup...and that fabulous ice puts it over the top! :)

Anybody know why Sonic didn't pick the projects with the MOST VOTES this past Friday??? It seems they just randomly picked winners - I don't get it!

My favorite is Cherry Limeade.

I am a teacher and am so glad Sonic has teamed up with donorschoose.org.

If anyone needs a project to support feel free to pick mine!!

Have a wonderful week!

Every morning on the way to my class I stop and get a large tea half and half no ice. Then I order a large cup of ice, I get two drinks that last the whole day!! Hey, a teacher has to stretch those pennies!!

I had never tried a powerade slush till I got sick this week. I've been running fever and I cant stand to drink water so my boyfriend bought me one and I can't get enough of them now. I think this is great for all the teachers who are going out of their way to provide our kids with better futures. I wish everyone could win.
