A Small Way To Give Back

Do you all follow Ashley Ann over at Under The Sycamore?  Her blog is one of my favorite blogs to read.  She is so genuine and uses her voice to do great things and advocates for those who don’t have a voice.  I took her Snap Shop course (online iphone photography course) and loved it!  I have even corresponded with her through email a bit and she has a heart of gold.  A couple weeks ago she wrote a post about the Frosty Coupon Book that Wendy’s is selling now through October 31st.

For $1 you can purchase a coupon book that includes 5 Jr. Frosty Coupons.  $0.90 of that dollar goes towards the Dave Thomas Foundation for adoption.  You can read more about the heart behind it on her original post here.  I love finding little ways to give back.  Sometimes the problems of the world seem so large, but there are lots of little steps like these coupon books that we can take to make a difference in people’s lives.   And I loved Ashley’s idea of giving them as gifts.  So this was a no brainer for me.  While my little guy and I were out the other day we drove by a Wendy’s and purchased some of the coupon books to give as gifts!  (We also had ourselves a little Jr. Frosty treat!)

Make sure to check out Ashley’s post for some fun and adorable ways to gift the coupons to someone.  I love giving gifts to friends.  It’s one of the ways I can let them know they are important to me and loved.  One of my friends has had a lot going on so I thought these coupons would be a fun gift.  In between running around town on their busy days she can stop and get her kiddos a fun treat!   I decided to use Ashley’s ideas for some inspiration.  Here’s what I came up with:

I thought of a few ways you could give these coupons as gifts:

*they would be great stocking stuffers

*leave one on a co-worker’s desk with a not of appreciation

*gifts to your neighbors

*let your kids earn them as rewards

*surprise a friend with a Jr. Frosty and a coupon on their door step

*give them as gifts for the students in your child’s classroom (With 5 coupons for a dollar that’s a great price to treat the whole class!)

*give one whole coupon book as a teacher appreciation gift

*Have your kiddos save up money to purchase a coupon book and let them give the coupons away as gifts to their friends (a great conversation could be had about the foundation they are supporting by doing this)

*you could give one away to a stranger as a random act of kindness gesture!

*give one to a mom that you know has had a rough week so she can treat her kids to a treat or pick up her kiddos to take them for a treat so she can have some time to herself!! 😉

*surprise your kids with a coupon on their car seat after school and take them for a treat

*surprise your kiddos after they are in their pjs and go get a Frosty at Wendy’s!

If you purchase some I’d love to hear how you give them as gifts!

I hope you all have a great rest of your week!  I’m excited to start surprising friends with Frosty’s coupons!
