Last year, my family was happy to both celebrate Father’s Day and be able to make a small difference while doing so, by participating in the Father’s Day Frosty Weekend program at Wendy’s. My kids kept the secret from their dad and we were able to surprise him on Father’s Day with an afternoon out, enjoying one of our family’s favorite treats.
This year, I’m happy to be able to participate again, and our trip to Wendy’s this coming Sunday on Father’s Day will be extra-special, since my husband will be leaving for an extended work trip the next day. The girls and I will not only savor the cool Frosty sweetness, and the last day that we’ll be together as a family for a little while – but also the chance to spend this important day helping to make a difference in others’ lives again too.
You can participate too! And by doing so, not only surprise a dad in your life with a yummy treat, but help other families be able to celebrate a happier Father’s Day by supporting Wendy’s Wonderful Kids – the signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, which is dedicated to finding ‘forever homes’ for kids in foster care.
Here’s how you can help:
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.
