Junior Frosties at Wendy's

Right now you can donate $1 to charity at Wendy's and in exchange you get a coupon book with 10 coupons for free junior Frosties.  They would even make a fun little Halloween treat for friends or a class!

I picked mine up at the Wendy's on Kildaire Farm/Cary Pkwy.  Not 100% sure if all the locations have them.  Has anyone seen them other locations too?
