Now before you fall over in shock we did Wendy’s and their $1 value menu – two bacon cheeseburgers for $2. No drinks were needed as we had our water bottles with us so $2 was it. When we pulled up to the window, I saw the promo for their Wendy’s Frosty and Kid’s foundation.
For $1, customers at participating Wendy’s restaurants can purchase an all-access pass to five months of Jr. Frostys while supporting the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and its signature program, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids.
Yes, I spent another $1 for a keytag. The money goes to the Foundation and through the end of the year, any time we swing by, we get a free Frosty with any purchase.
I’m not proud of it, but I am fond of their baked potatoes and chili…yes, more things on the $1 menu -LOL! I DO see us occasionally going back there and taking advantage of our unlimited offer.
About the foundation – We are adoptive parents and love the idea of every child having a home…here is some more info about it:
“Every child deserves a family,” said Rita Soronen, executive director of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. “Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, a signature program of the Foundation, is assuring that children in foster care are adopted across the nation. Our partnership with Wendy’s and the sale of Frosty key tags makes it easy for everyone to support our work.”
“My dad always said giving back is the right thing to do. This key tag fund-raiser is one way of giving back to the community where we live and work, and most importantly, helping children without families,” said Wendy Thomas, one of the Columbus restaurant owners participating in the program. Thomas is the daughter of Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s Restaurants and the Foundation. She is also the namesake for the national restaurant chain.
About the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption: The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a national nonprofit public charity dedicated to dramatically increasing the adoptions of the more than 150,000 children waiting in North America’s foster care systems.

I suggest you call your local Wendy’s and see if they are participating, it’s a painless way to give back and pretty darned tasty on a hot day!
