Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption (+ giveaway)

When I was a kid, we went out to dinner fairly frequently. Not weekly or anything, but we certainly went to restaurants. What we did NOT do very often was get fast food. And, when we did? There was often great debate over where we should go. I was the Wendy’s girl out of the three of us and I usually won because my brother would add his vote to mine. (Let’s just say he wasn’t as big a fan of the “whaler” as my sister was. ;))

As you know, this Sunday is Father’s Day! And guess what? Wendy’s has something that you can all do together to help other families! The fact that it’s also delicious is just an extra bonus…

Now through Father’s Day, anyone can help children in foster care find permanent, loving homes. Continuing its Father’s Day Frosty Weekend tradition for the sixth year in a row, Wendy’s is inviting customers to help raise money for Wendy’s Wonderful Kids. This signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is dedicated to finding permanent adoptive families for children in foster care. Here’s what you need to know:
Who: Everyone! And dad, too!
What: Help Wendy’s make a big donation to Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, the signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption that is dedicated to finding permanent adoptive families for children in foster care. They want to beat last year’s $1.4 million donation! Let’s help them get there!
When: Father’s Day Weekend (June 16 – 17)
How: There are three ways to donate:
1. Buy any Frosty product: On Saturday, June 16 and Sunday, June 17, for each Frosty product purchased, participating Wendy’s will donate 50-cents to Wendy’s Wonderful Kids. (includes the original, parfaits, shakes and floats).

2. Use a mobile-friendly website to check in at Wendy’s: Wendy’s will donate 50-cents for every customer that checks in at Wendy’s restaurants during Father’s Day Weekend (June 16 and 17 only) using Wendy’s special mobile-friendly website found at www.wendys.com/treatitforward.

3. Re-tweet: Now through Father’s Day, re-tweet one of @Wendys special Twitter posts with the hashtag #TreatItFwd—and Wendy’s will make a 50-cent donation. You can follow @Wendys on Twitter at https://twitter.com/wendys.

I may not be one of weird interesting folks who dips my fries in a Frosty, but I have always been a fan. My “Eating by Ancestry” project will be over by Father’s Day, so I’m thinking a Frosty reward might be in order!

Want to treat a family member or two to a Frosty? I have a $7 gift card for one of you to do just that! To enter, simply:

1) Leave a comment letting me know your favorite fast food treat! (mandatory)

2) Tweet about this giveaway: #TreatItFwd this weekend when you stop by @Wendys – buy a Frosty to help children in foster care find loving adoptive homes. (leave a comment letting me know you did!)

3) Become a fan of Parenting Miracles on FB: https://www.facebook.com/ParentingMiracles (or let me know if you already are!)

**Winner will be selected on June 15th!**

Wendy’s gift cards and promotion information were provided to me through The Motherhood. All opinions about Wendy’s, Frosties, and the awesomeness of being able to help in a tasty way are my own.
