Buy a FROSTY Key Tag at WENDY's for $1 to support the Dave Thomas Foundation
& get a FREE Jr. Frosty with any purchase all summer long*

Did you know there are more than 100,000 kids in foster care in the United States waiting to be adopted right now?!  The Dave Thomas Foundation, created by the founder of Wendy's Restaurants, though is trying to do something about that through its "Wendy's Wonderful Kids" program.  The $1 you donate for a Frosty Key Tag gets you free Jr. Frosty's all summer long when you dine at participating Wendy's locations and gives the Dave Thomas Foundation funding to help "unadoptable" children get adopted. 

Wendy's Wonderful Kids awards grants to public and private adoption agencies to hire staffers who implement proactive, child-focused recruitment programs targeted specifically at moving America's longest-waiting children from foster care into adoptive families. In the five years since this program was started 194 recruiters have worked to finalize more than 4,000 adoptions.  Children referred to Wendy's Wonderful Kids are up to 3 times more likely to get adopted.  While these results are great there is still so much more work to be done and your purchase of a Frosty Key Tag is one small way to help.

Oh, and why was Dave Thomas interested in creating a foundation to help children in need of adoption find a home?  Because as a kid, he was adopted into a loving family himself.  

*Purchase a FrostyTM Key Tag and you’ll get a free Jr. FrostyTM with any purchase through 8/31/14. At participating locations while supplies last. All proceeds benefit the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®.
