Wendy's Promotes Fathers Day Weekend Frosties @

Wendy's marketing team  created a unique site to celebrate Father's Day and benefit a great charity : The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption

 At, you can personalized Father's day card and select from various themes  backgrounds,borders and icons. wendys facebook pageFor each unique card created, .25 cents is donated to the DTFA, and for every frosty purchased, 50 cents will be donated.
An announcement for the event is placed front-and-center on, and they also created an Frosty Weekend event page on Facebook.

Wendy's founder Dave Thomas was adopted, and as a fellow adoptee, I have an incredible amount of respect for foundations such as DTFA,which finds  loving homes for 150,000 children waiting in Foster Care.  I visited and created a card that depicts a priceless memory of dad.

dave thomas foundation for adoptionDuring a family vacation in the Caribbean, my father, or Ranger Rick as we sometimes call him, was nearly carried out to sea after he jumped overboard to save a $10 umbrella that we rented.. He refused to let go and nearly drowned in the process. To this day, we still haze him about it, and we can all sit back and laugh. Thanks to the efforts of Wendys and DTFA, thousands of children will be laughing around the dinnertable with their family and sharing the same unforgettable stories the rest of their life.

(1) Thoughts on Wendy's Promotes Fathers Day Weekend Frosties @

Hello everyone,

I can't believe how fast Fathers Day has come round again this year. I am so glad that I managed to get Dads gift idea all sorted out over the weekend. I will be cooking roast chicken and all the trimmings, and I plan to send Dad an e-Card this year. Just as they are fun and easy to send, I hope Dad will like them. Dad is always on his computer playing card games and puzzles, so I think I might try and send him an eCard this year. I spent ages on the net trying to find a site I liked and have come across a cool site that has lots of <a href=""> free Fathers Day eCards</a> . I had never sent an eCard before, so I was glad this site made it really easy to choose and send a card. I was pleased to see a large range of Father’s Day cards too. There are loads of sites out there so it is definitely worth trying some out and seeing what you like.
