Foster care adoption is something very near and dear to my family. Our lives have been blessed in ways I cannot begin to describe because of 3 special children that we got to know first as foster children and then later on as forever family through adoption. Watching these 3 kids grow and thrive has been amazing... Did you know that there are more than 100,000 children in foster care awaiting to be adopted? I would like to think that every child would one day get the forever home they deserve and Wendy's® and The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® want to help that happen by offering these Halloween Coupon Books for $1 each. Ninety cents from each $1 coupon book sold will go directly to the The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®!
This year, Wendy’s® aims to give $10 million to The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® and that means so much to my family personally because of our amazing experiences with adoption. Instead of candy, this year we will be handing out these coupons to each of our neighborhood trick or treat visitors as a way to help support this effort. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® believes that we have a responsibility to be the voice of foster care adoption, so that every child finds a family. As founder Dave Thomas said, “These children are not someone else’s responsibility. They are our responsibility.” The DTFA exist to find homes for children who are waiting to be adopted from foster care in North America. Our family agrees... and wants to do whatever we can to help.
Another way I plan to use the coupon books is for our yearly pumpkin carving contest with the family. We all get together and go pumpkin picking, carve them and vote for which has the best design, funniest face, most artistic. These Frosty coupons will be a great prize for the winners!
I hope you will think about supporting this great cause along with me by visiting your local Wendy's and picking up a few of these coupon books to give to your family and friends... there are too many children out there who need a place to call home and people to call family and we can do this little thing to help. All children deserve a family to love.
