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.
Powerful Homily: Catholic Priest Rebukes Members of the Church Who Ignored Religious Freedom, Voted for Joe Biden
This priest isn’t cowing before the pro-abortion Left.
Father Jeffrey Kirby of the Diocese of Charleston delivered a powerful homily rebuking members of the Church who voted for Joe Biden last week.
Father Kirby began his homily telling the account of St. Thomas Becket, a 12th century English bishop who was murdered in his cathedral for upholding the rights of the Church in defiance of governmental mandates. Kirby compared Becket’s opponents to Catholics who supported Biden, who is likely to continue in the vein of governmental impositions and infringements on religious liberty seen from President Obama’s administration.
Watch Father Kirby’s full homily here.
“Some of you, I know, voted for someone who is now going to suffer and persecute the Church for the next four years…
That on top of the fact that he supports the slaughter of the unborn!
What have you done! What have you done to your Church! Look, and watch, as our religious sisters are dragged through the courts! As contraception is imposed upon them! Watch as our hospitals disappear. Because we will not follow government dictates.”
Biden, who styles himself as a Catholic despite support for unlimited abortion and homosexualism, benefited from the support of more religious Catholics and Evangelical Christians than previous Democrat candidates for President. Father Kirby made sure that those who thought allusions to “tone” and decorum were more important than fundamental Catholic moral teachings on life understood the errors of their ways.
“And those of you who voted for such an administration… bear responsibility, for what you have done. Because we are in for it, folks. And they are already getting ready for it.”
Some high-ranking bishops of the American Catholic Church even went so far as to appear to outright endorse Joe Biden, a development unprecedented for a presidential candidate promising full support for an unlimited abortion agenda.
“Never forget, that the spiritual mystics tell us, that the pavements of hell are paved with the skulls of bishops. I preach the truth. So those of you who are entrusted to my care- you know what we believe as Catholics. You know what the true religion calls for. And I want to make sure that I speak it-even if every one of you denies it.“
