We send thousands of handwritten thank you note to donors who make contributions to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. We rely on volunteers to write notes so our donors, whose support makes it possible for our Wendy's Wonderful Kids adoption recruiters to find safe, loving, and permanent homes for children in foster care, are thanked and encouraged to continue their support. Volunteers should be located in central Ohio, as there are specific supplies we provide, and then volunteers complete the cards at home on your own schedule. This is a great project for anyone who wants to help a national non-profit in their own home and at your own pace.

About DAVE THOMAS FOUNDATION FOR ADOPTION

Location:

4900 Tuttle Crossing Blvd., Dublin, OH 43016, US

Mission Statement

Dramatically increase the number of adoptions of children waiting in North America’s foster care systems.

Description

Our story began in 1990 when Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s, accepted President George H.W. Bush’s invitation to be the spokesperson for a national adoption awareness campaign. However, Dave knew he could do more. In 1992, he established the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

Over the years, Dave’s modest charisma and simple sincerity helped spread the word about adoption. In 1997, he testified before Congress to support an adoption tax credit that aimed to make adoption more affordable. He also appeared in public service announcements, expanded his reach to Canada and led the initiative to create an adoption stamp, which was issued by the U.S. Postal Service in 2000.

On January 8, 2002, Dave passed away and the world lost one of its greatest advocates for children. Dave Thomas was respected for being a talented businessman and a caring philanthropist; his unceasing desire to improve the lives of North America’s most vulnerable children was arguably his greatest contribution to society.

For more than 25 years, the Foundation has continued its pursuit of Dave’s goal of finding forever families for children in foster care.
