What's better than eating at Chipotle? Eating at Chipotle for a good cause.

You can do that on Wednesday, July 19 when Chipotle restaurants across the country will be donating half of all their proceeds to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).

Grab your burrito – or whichever Chipotle menu item strikes your fancy – between 10:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. that day to donate. Half of every total purchase made in Minnesota will benefit LLS patients in the state.

Every single Chipotle in Minnesota is participating. Customers just need to mention the fundraiser at the register or show the flyer below.

About LLS

Established in 1954, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education, and patient services, the website says.

Their mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

To date, LLS has raised $1 billion dollars in research funding.
