This year marks the 14th annual A Home for the Holidays where foster care adoption is celebrated with stories from adoptive families, children looking for an adoptive home, and celebrities sharing musical numbers. It's a show I look forward to watching every year - usually with a wad of tissues. Rachel Crow, Melissa Etheridge, Rascal Flatts and other entertainers are a part of this year's show. The special, sponsored by Wendy's, airs today - Wednesday, December 19, at 8:00 p.m. EST on CBS.
A Home for the Holidays is presented with the help from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and the Children's Action Network.
Wendy's is also encouraging consumers to "tweet it" to "treat it" back to this important cause. For every tweet using #TreatItFwd until December 21, Wendy's will donate 50˘ to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption™ (DTFA). DTFA is a non-profit organization that was established in 1992 by Wendy's founder Dave Thomas, who was adopted. Wendy's will donate up to $25,000 to the Foundation in support of Wendy's Wonderful Kids, the signature program of DTFA that focuses on moving America's longest-waiting children in foster care into adoptive families.
So "tweet if forward" and look for A Home for the Holidays tonight, Wednesday, December 19, on CBS at 8 EST.
