Krispy Kreme Heading To India

Filed under: FoodFast Food

Krispie India

FINALLY.

The one thing we've been saying for YEARS around here at FitPerez.com is that more countries need access to mass-produced donuts.

Specifically India.

Well, it looks like someone was listening, because Krispie Kreme is about to open 80 stores in the country!

These will be added to the 690 stores in 21 countries world wide.

Like we said: finally.

Anyone else feel like places are just fine without it??

Starting next week, over 2,200 bicyclists and 600 volunteer “roadies" will make a seven-day (June 3-9), 545-mile journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise more than $11 million for the world’s largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser. Impressive!

Representing 16 countries and ages 18 to 83, participants will raise money to support the HIV/AIDS-related services of San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center.

According to Lorri L. Jean, CEO of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center:

“There are 1.1 million Americans living with HIV, with gay and bisexual men disproportionately affected. In California alone, as many as 7,000 people become infected each year. That’s why AIDS/LifeCycle is so important; the services it supports are critical, both to serve those living with HIV and to stop the spread of this disease.”

YOU can sign up for next year’s AIDS/LifeCycle HERE!
