What Do You Crave?


This blog post is by Liz Klug, the Autism Speaks Midwest Regional Director

What do you crave? Our friends at White Castle crave a better future for everyone who struggles with autism. And that’s why they are “lighting it up blue” this April for Autism Speaks. White Castle is “calling all cravers” to pick up a puzzle piece for $1, $3 or $5 in any restaurant location Sunday, March 24th through Tuesday, April 30 to benefit Autism Speaks.

For every puzzle piece purchased, White Castle will offer a free Chicken Ring Slider coupon in exchange, valid for any visit June 1 through June 30, 2013. White Castle restaurants are located in Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, Detroit, Indianapolis, Louisville, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Northeast Ohio, Nashville, New Jersey, New York and St. Louis. But, not to worry if you don’t live in one of these markets because the campaign extends to White Castle frozen foods this year too! Watch for a coupon in the Sunday paper on April 7th. For every coupon redeemed, White Castle will make a donation to Autism Speaks.

Since 2008, White Castle has contributed more than $2 million to Autism Speaks. We are so grateful for this incredible partnership--and, a true partnership it is. White Castle employees weave the puzzle piece campaign into every single transaction. White Castle customers respond by generously contributing. And, Autism Speaks’ families show their support by popping in to pick up a puzzle piece, a Crave Case and to say a few words of thanks.

Please help us show White Castle just how much their wonderful partnership means to us. Swing by to pick up a bite, a puzzle piece or two and to say thanks to the team members who are working so hard on our behalf. And, if you happen to see a wall covered in puzzle pieces, please take a picture and share it with us on Facebook.

Another great way to say thanks is to submit feedback to White Castle on the company’s Facebook page, via the 800 number (1-800-THE CRAVE) or through the White Castle website. You can also call your local Castle directly by calling the number on the bottom of your register receipt.

Thank you in advance for your support of this campaign! And, thank you to all of our friends at White Castle. Crave on!

White Castle Family Members Marci and Bill Ingram thank all of the Cravers who supported the Puzzle Piece campaign for Autism Speaks in 2012!
