Growing up, I remember my Nana picking me up and taking me out for rides in her car. We would play music and just ride for hours. On the way home, we would always stop for something special. That treat was almost always a Frosty from Wendy’s. It was special sitting there in the car, scooping the thick chocolate dessert and waiting for it to be ready to drink with a straw. Most of the time, we were too quick gobbling it up with our spoons to ever need our straws. I have continued this tradition with my boys. Both of them love to head out with me and we often will stop at Wendy’s for a special outing. Of course, when at Wendy’s we have to get a Frosty.
Over the past three years, Wendy’s has started a tradition on Father’s Day weekend. They have what they call Father’s Day Frosty Weekend where they donate 50 cents from each Frosty sale to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Once again this Father’s Day weekend (June 20-21), they will be holding this event at all Wendy’s. The money that is raised will go to the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program. This fund assists full-time adoption recruiters at local agencies across the United States. These recruiters them help to pair up parents with foster care children that need loving homes.
Please join our family and head to Wendy’s this Father’s Day weekend to help a great cause. While you are enjoying your tasty Frosty, you will know that you are helping children to find a home of their own. You can also stop by your local Wendy’s and buy a Frosty Pinup for $1 at any time to help Dave’s charity.
Another fun way to involve your kids while helping out is to have them make a Father’s Day eCard on FrostyCard.com. Wendy’s will donate an additional 25 cents to the Dave Thomas Foundation for each card that is sent. The best part is that kids can be creative with them and add on coupons for "taking out the trash" or "washing the car" with the cards for Dad. There are also cards that are designed by celebrities or you can design your own.
Do not forget, you can pick from any of the Frosty menu items. So which will you pick, an Original Frosty, Frosty Shake, Frosty Float, or a new Twisted Frosty?
Thanks to Mom Central for introducing my family to this fabulous event. Now be sure to mark Father’s Day Frosty Weekend on your calendar like I did!
I didn’t know about this. Thanks for sharing. Sounds like a great program. And who doesn’t love frosties? :D
