As “woke capitalism” becomes more prevalent and social justice dogma bleeds over into the corporate marketplace, one multinational – the restaurant giant Wendy’s – is bucking the trend and promoting life.
Wendy’s and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, named after the late founder of the fast food chain, are standing up to better the lives of children in the foster care system.
While liberals complain about conservatives not caring about children once they are born, a program created by the Foundation, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, finds homes for children who are older, part of a group of siblings, or have developmental disabilities.
This organization improves the lives of the downtrodden, children who would be aborted if leftist groups like Planned Parenthood had their way.
The Foundation is partnering with Snapchat to start the ‘Cause Cup’ program. Participating Wendy’s locations will give soft drinks that have a code on them to allow people to donate $5 toward the foundation, and giving more opportunities for disadvantaged children to live fulfilling lives with a family of their own.
Rita Soronen, who has served as the president and CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption since 2001, hopes that this partnership with Snapchat will take their adoption program nationwide.
“In this country, there are 110,000 children waiting to be adopted. That’s a lot of children who are at risk of turning 18, leaving foster care without a family. They are much more susceptible to negative outcomes as adults,” Soronen said during an interview with Columbus Monthly.
They have tested out their methods in Ohio, and had great results by focusing their resources on understanding the children and treating them as individuals rather than cogs in a machine. Case workers are given resources and empowered to spend a great deal of time on children so that they can be understood and placed in homes where they can thrive.
“For the past four to five years now, we have scaled Wendy’s Wonderful Kids across Ohio. We’ve seen more than 330 adoptions finalized across the state. We know that it’s about $3 million a year to keep this program scaled in Ohio. Since we’ve had the program in Ohio, we’ve saved the state $64 million,” Soronen said.
“We’re saving children’s lives, and we’re saving critical resources at the state and county level. It’s that one-two punch that makes sense for states,” she added.
The Foundation has become one of the most successful charities in the country, and is using social media to actually make a positive difference for the lives of children.

INSTEAD of supporting the sick for-profit abortion industry of Planned Parenthood THIS is what big corporations should be doing for America. Bravo @wendys ???????????????????????? . .

When a pro-abortion leftist talks about what will happen to children if they are not murdered in the womb, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption can be used as one of many examples of Good Samaritans working to improve the lives of kids.
Texas City Stands Up for Life by Passing Pro-Life Ordinance
Planned Parenthood is not welcome.
The town of New Home, located south of Lubbock, became the 15th city in Texas to prohibit abortion on September 29, 2020.
The New Home city council unanimously voted for the resolution following state politicians and local officials discussing the idea of bringing back a Planned Parenthood facility to the city. New Home Baptist pastor L.J. Wright was a champion of this pro-life effort and hopes that the vote will change Lubbock’s city council decision to bring back Planned Parenthood.
“With the City Council in Lubbock seemingly balking at the ordinance while claiming to be Pro-Life, this puts the pressure directly on them,” Wright commented. “Every city in Lynn County should consider following suit with New Home, and get behind Mark Lee Dickson… I am challenging all of West Texas to stand up for life, and make their city a Sanctuary City for the Unborn.”
Mark Lee Dickson, a pro-life activist and director of Right to Life of East Texas, crafted this ordinance.
Texas Senator Charles Perry, who represents Lubbock, has sent a petition around requesting that Planned Parenthood be kept out of Lubbock and signed on a letter calling Lubbock to pass a similar ordinance.
“Passing an ordinance designating Lubbock as a Sanctuary City for the Unborn will help to continue the Texas belief that life begins at conception, while also protecting the safety of mothers,” Perry wrote in the letter, which was also signed by State Representatives Dustin Burrows and John Frullo.
Similar to the other cities who have passed such ordinances, New Home’s ordinance implements the abortion ban by imposing fines on abortion providers. The catch is that this ordinance will go into effect once Roe v. Wade is overturned. Providers will also be held liable for carrying out abortions, and families who have children that were aborted will now be able to sue them.
The Texas reported that “Waskom, Naples, Joaquin, Tenaha, Gilmer, Westbrook, Rusk, Colorado City, Gary, Big Spring, Wells, Whiteface, and East Mountain are the other cities that have adopted the ordinance, modeled by Dickson. The town of Omaha adopted the ordinance but later pulled its teeth, making it a symbolic resolution instead.”
Texans are getting fed up with the inaction of legislators at the state and federal level. So, they’re taking matters into their own hands at the local level. Similar to Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions, these pro-life movements represent a growing dissatisfaction with the political status quo and are likely a sign of how politics will be conducted from here on out.
