Wendy's is celebrating Father's Day by helping steal children from parents. On June 14 and 15, Wendy's will donate one dollar from the sale of each frosty product to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
Wendy's founder Dave Thomas was adopted himself back in the days when adoption was an act of charity. He continued to support adoption even after demographic and cultural shifts changed adoption from placement of unwanted children (mostly from single teenaged mothers) to placement of stolen goods.
Enjoy a Frosty during Father's Day Weekend and Help Change the Lives of Children in Foster Care
TORONTO, June 12 /CNW/ - Wendy's Restaurants of Canada are giving people the opportunity to help more than 30,000 Canadian children who are currently waiting for the love of their forever families.
During Father's Day weekend, Wendy's will donate $1.00 from the sale of every Frosty product to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Canada.
Last year the goal in Canada was to raise $100,000 but Wendy's surpassed the goal raising $140,000. This year the goal is to raise $150,000 to support the work of the non-profit Foundation and its signature program: Wendy's Wonderful Kids (WWK).
In Canada the program has already funded four full-time recruiters in Ontario and British Columbia and to date, have already overseen four successful adoptions and have helped match 30 kids and families to reach the pre-adoptive stage (the last step before the adoption becomes finalized).
- When: June 14th and 15th come out and purchase a Frosty.
- Where: All participating Wendy's locations across Canada.
