With the holidays slowly creeping upon us, it’s time to start booking travel and making plans to spend time with family for the time of year that means the most when it comes to coming together. While many of us will have the comfort of home and the companionship of those we hold most dear, there are hundreds of thousands of children in the foster care system that will be spending the holidays in foster care. Whether you have your own families to be with this holiday season or want to expand your families but don’t have the funds for adoption, consider the option of donating to charities and organizations that work towards finding homes for children in need and donate what you can spare. Every bit helps.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the story behind Wendy’s and their Adoption Foundation, I’d love to share the story with you. It all began with founder, Dave Thomas. Adopted as a child, Dave knew all too well the importance of having a family. After becoming the founder of Wendy’s, Dave put the Dave Thomas Adoption Foundation into place in 1992, a foundation that works to help find permanent, loving homes for more than 130,000 children that are currently waiting in North America’s foster care system.
The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption was founded on the belief that children in foster care were more than just someone else’s responsibility, they were “our” responsibility. Even now, 46 years after they were founded in 1969, Wendy’s continues to support children in foster care and dedicates their hard work to helping find them loving homes through fundraising and collaboration with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
To help do their part in helping fund the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Wendy’s is participating in a promo that I think my readers are going to love. Back in September Wendy’s started selling their annual Halloween Coupon Books and plan to continue doing so until the first of November. For only $1, customers can get 5 or 10 FREE Frosty Coupons* so instead of handing out candy, purchase one of these awesome books and hand coupons out to your trick or treaters! Who wouldn’t appreciate a sweet alternative to candy in the form of these frozen treats?
Not a fan of Halloween or planning on going out to celebrate the holiday? Buy one of Wendy’s special Halloween Coupon Books as a gift for someone who loves their wickedly delicious treats or to add to your secret stash of emergency coupons for those late night munchies. The promotion ends November 1st so hurry and grab yourself a couple while supplies last and don’t get caught missing out on this awesome promotional event!
Eighty-five cents of every dollar from the Halloween Coupon Books will go to support the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption to support programs such as Wendy’s Wonderful Kids. So, next time you make the trip to your local Wendy’s, please consider purchasing one of these awesome little booklets. Every dollar counts and goes a long way in helping a child find a home to call their own!
* Number of coupons per book vary based on location
