When helping my kids plan for Father’s Day, I remind them that simply spending fun time with Dad proves a much better gift than a fancy gadget or tacky tie. Each year our family makes a point to create a day together doing something that Dad likes, which in our house usually ends with us all falling asleep on the couch! This Father’s Day weekend we plan to go to Wendy’s for an after-dinner Frosty, and in the process feel great about supporting a worthy charitable cause while enjoying a favorite summer treat.
For the past three years, Wendy’s has made it a Father’s Day Frosty Weekend tradition to donate 50 cents from the sale of each Frosty to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. The money raised goes to the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program, which funds full-time adoption recruiters at local agencies across the U.S., who in turn pair up parents with foster care children needing homes. So, you and your family can enjoy a tasty (and affordable!) Frosty together, knowing this campaign assists children across the country in finding a family of their own.
Involve the kids in this great cause by having them create a fun Father’s Day eCard on FrostyCard.com. For every card they send, Wendy’s will donate an additional 25 cents to the Dave Thomas Foundation. Kids can attach coupons for “taking out the trash” or “washing the car” onto the cards for Dad.
So, send Dad a card, and then head to Wendy’s to get a super yummy Frosty this Father’s Day!
