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.

North Carolina Pro-Lifers Sue City After Being Arrested for Prayer Outside of Abortion Clinic
There were only four of them.
A group of North Carolina pro-life activists are suing the city of Greensboro, North Carolina for arresting them as they prayed outside an abortion center in the city. The activists, who belonged to the group Love Life, were arrested in accordance with the city’s coronavirus and social distancing guidelines for the Chinese coronavirus.
The activists were arrested last week for violating ‘stay at home’ orders. Merely four of them- no great crowd in which coronavirus would be likely present- were praying outside an abortion center called A Woman’s choice. The Greensboro Police tried repeatedly to get the activists to leave the scene voluntarily before taking them into custody. A police press release on the incident describes four men being charged with violating Greensboro’s Stay at Home ordinance and obstructing a peace officer.
Seven pro-life activists who arrived to protest the abortion center the following Monday were arrested by the Greensboro Police as well, demonstrating a willingness to continually arrest those who engage in the protest of the facility.
A lawsuit regarding the matter has been filed by the Thomas More Society, accusing the Greensboro Police Department of violating the pro-life demonstrators’ First Amendment rights. Another pro-life activist in Michigan is also filing a lawsuit against Michigan’s Democratic governor for his arrest while safely protesting an abortion center in Detroit alone.
If municipalities such as Greenboro want to enforce social distancing and stay at home rules, they need to realize that wide-ranging exceptions need to be made for people to participate in certain religious and political ceremonies. There is no excuse for arresting people for gathering outside in a crowd of four, especially when it’s to express their most valued moral and spiritual principles.
