Father's Day Frosty Weekend

I didn't realize this, but for the past 3 years Wendy's has created a new tradition with the Father's Day Frosty Weekend. Wendy's donates 50 cents for every Frosty sold 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.

Last year $1.7 million dollars was raised during that Father's Day Frosty Weekend- that's a lot of Frosty's sold! $260,000 was donated from Canadian restaurants where $1 was donated for every Frosty sold.

And there's more...you can create a free Father's Day ecard at Frosty Card and for every card that is sent Wendy's will donate an additional 25 cents to the Dave Thomas Foundation...how wonderful! You can even attach coupons to the cards for things like "washing the car" and "taking out the trash."

I think Kayla and I will be making plenty of Father's Day cards to send to Joe and the grandpas! And we'll go have a Frosty for Joe on Father's Day so at the same time we can help contribute to a wonderful charity.

Thanks to Mom Central for making me aware of the Father's Day Frosty Weekend!
