Chick-fil-A Promised Free Meals to Cow Lovers on Cow Appreciation Day
For those of you who didn’t know (which might actually be all of you), last Friday the 13th was Cow Appreciation Day. It was a day dedicated to showing your love for the majestic cow by dressing up in a head-to-toe cow costume. We’re still perplexed as to how this actually benefits these animals, but regardless the fast-food joint Chick-fil-A was very into this weird holiday.
In fact, they were offering a free meal to anyone who came in one of their restaurants on Cow Appreciation Day partially or fully dressed as a cow. The deal was good for breakfast, lunch or dinner, depending on when customers felt the most secure with themselves to go out in public like that.
Some of the 1,600 participating locations also decided to use this Cow Appreciation Day promotion for charity, promising to match the value of all donations received for World Vision, the organization behind “Sponsor a Child.”
If you remember, Chick-fil-A has been a major source of controversy due to claims the company is anti-gay in its support of pro-Christian organizations, though Chick-fil-A denies these claims. That said, does this Cow Appreciation Day initiative make you want to eat Chick-fil-A more now?
