Christian Post wishes you a happy National Donut Day.

If you haven't seen it, one of our CP reporters has written about the history of this unique food event:

National Donut Day was established by The Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938 as a way to honor "donut lassies," who served donuts to soldiers during World War I, and to help raise money and create awareness of the ministry's social service programs during the Great Depression.

Did you know that the average America eats 34 donuts each year? Donut sales is a $2 billion business in America. Americans make 10 billion donuts per year. The following infographic by Offers includes a collection of interesting donut statistics.
