Children's Day Of Hope

If you bought a meal from Wendy's on Sunday, know it or not, you helped a child. A portion of the proceeds from the day's sales at Wendy's will go to children's homes and adoption agencies in Mississippi it's what founder dave thomas would have wanted.

Bay Saint Louis Wendy's Manager Scott Nicely said, "He was adopted at a young age and he has always placed a heavy emphasis throughout his life on adoption, it's a wonderful cause, wonderful."

Thomas was so active in raising awarenes about adoption that in 1990 President Bush asked him to become the national spokesmen for the cause. His efforts have helped place thousands of children in loving homes.
