Cheers to Frosty Key Tags & Free Drinks for Ntl. Adoption Month
Learn How Wendy’s is Celebrating and Support Adoption Awareness this November
Read time: 1 min
Families are at the heart of Wendy’s® – and the causes we support. Each November, we honor National Adoption Month by celebrating families who have grown through adoption, and raising awareness of the more than 120,000 children in the U.S. foster care system who are still waiting for a permanent, loving home.
During this special month we are welcoming back two fan-favorite awareness and fundraising programs which serve to support our commitment to help find forever families for children in foster care through the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® (DTFA).
Sip Sip, Hooray! Your Drink Is on the House This Month
Now through November 30, you can visit Wendy’s mobile app to redeem an offer for a FREE beverage of any size with purchase.* The promotion refreshes daily (meaning you can get a FREE drink every day) and is inclusive of Wendy’s entire drink lineup, from a refreshing Coke® Zero Sugar to a classic Dr Pepper® pick-me-up.
And the best part? Each time you redeem the in-app offer, our friends at Coca-Cola® and Dr Pepper will make a donation to the DTFA, up to a maximum of $500,000.00. It’s a simple way to enjoy a drink on us and support a cause that helps to make more special family moments possible for children lingering in foster care.
Wendy’s 2022 Frosty® Key Tags
Put your love for the Wendy’s Frosty toward a good cause! From now through January 31, 2022, Frosty fans can purchase Wendy’s annual Frosty Key Tags for just $2, with proceeds supporting the DTFA.**
As one of Wendy’s national cause-marketing fundraising campaigns, when you purchase a tag for $2, you unlock a FREE Jr. Frosty with any purchase for an entire year. It’s the gift that keeps giving!
Not to mention, the Frosty Key Tag isn’t just something to add to your keychain, you can purchase digital Key Tags via the Wendy’s mobile app or in-restaurant. If purchasing directly in the app, you’ll immediately receive the Key Tag in the form of a daily mobile offer that can be applied to mobile orders or added to Wendy’s Rewards card for in-restaurant scanning.***
Supporting Foster Care Adoption
In 1992, Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas, who was adopted himself, gave adoption a national platform by creating the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Its mission is to dramatically increase the number of adoptions of children waiting in North America’s foster care systems.
Through its signature program, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids®, the Foundation supports the hiring of adoption professionals, known as Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters who are dedicated to serving children who have been in foster care the longest. This includes teenagers, children with special needs and siblings. Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters work with smaller caseloads of 12-15 children to ensure that each child receives the time, resources and support they deserve. To date, nearly 11,000 children have been adopted through the program.
Siblings Taye, Kemarquez and Kiondre were adopted in 2020 with help from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and their Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiter Angela. Watch the video below to learn more about their adoption story:
