Eva Longoria Serves Up Fast Food For The Sake Of Children

When I first heard that Eva Longoria was promoting Wendy’s I thought, ” Booo. That sucks! Get off the stage.” But then I listened closer and heard that she was doing it to raise cash for some kids who really need it. So now I sit conflicted!

Here’s the deal: Eva Longoria spent yesterday working behind the register at a Corpus Cristi, Texas Wendy’s as part of the Father’s Day Frosty Weekend. According to official reports “the goal is to raise more than $1.3 million for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Foundation.”

So now here’s the question bloggers: can you justify temporarily supporting a company that serves unhealthy, low-quality food wrapped in packaging that is far from environmentally friendly if it means raising $1.3 million for a worthy cause?

This reminds me of a litte friendly debate that occured in the vegetarian world a couple years ago when Burger King introduced the first VEGAN fast food veggie burger. Some people thought the vegan community should support Burger King for their decision or the option would be gone, while others thought that it was merely a temporary publicity stunt and that by supporting Burger King we were supporting the very industry we opposed. At the end of the day Burger King nixed the vegan patty and both sides said, “I told you so.” But I digress.

Is it worth supporting Wendy’s, even if they suck, for the sake of a charity that doesn’t suck at all? Think it over, sus it out, talk about it with your co-workers and then comment away and let us know what you think!

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.

Wicked Good Opportunity

Bloomberg reports that the introduction of “vegan ranges” is at least partially responsible for improving Tesco’s finances.
