A creamy, cold, chocolate Frosty™ evokes fond memories of my childhood and running around with my dad. While my dad isn’t here anymore to tell me for certain, I’m pretty sure that his favorite quick place to eat was Wendy’s®. And no matter what time of year it was, when we went, we always, always got a Frosty™. Even now, as an adult, each time I take a sip or a spoonful of Frosty™ (depending on how I feel like eating it that day), I am reminded of those times with my dad and the fun meals we shared.
In 1990, Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s® , accepted President George H.W. Bush’s invitation to be the spokesperson for a national adoption awareness campaign. Just two years later, Dave established The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® as a non-profit public charity with one primary goal: to help every child in foster care find a loving, permanent family. This makes me support this restaurant even more. Not only am I adopted, as is my brother, but we have been touched by the foster care system many times throughout the years, as well as being a foster family ourselves a few times.
With 5 teenagers of my own, and Wendy’s® being my favorite fast food restaurant, we try to go as much as we can. At Halloween time, it’s great because for only $1.00 we can pick up a coupon book filled with 5 Jr. Frosty™ coupons. Not only does this save us money (and we always pick up a few), but when you purchase a Wendy’s® Halloween Coupon Book for $1 at participating Wendy’s to support foster care, ninety cents of ever $1 will benefit the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®. Coupons will be valid for use November 1, 2014 through February 1, 2015. Obviously this means lot of chances and days to enjoy a Frosty™ with a loved one.
Visit your local Wendy’s® to purchase a Jr. Frosty™ Halloween Coupon Book* for $1, which benefits the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®!
*Coupon book may contain coupons for 5 or 10 free Jr. Frosty™ treats. Prices and participation may vary. Ninety cents to every $1 coupon booklet sold between 9/15/14 and 10/31/14 will benefit the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®. Coupons valid from 11/1/14 through 2/1/15. ©2014 Oldemark LLC”
