Check Out Our mitú Squad Members That Recreated Baby Pics

The beautiful thing about Latino kids is that even as they get older and become fully functional adults, some of them still live at home with their parents and that’s totally something to be celebrated. Living at home when you’re in your 20s, 30s, and beyond is a wonderful thing. You can still have your own life, but you can be there for your parents as they get older. Latinos always put their family first, so why wouldn’t they want to stay with their parents as long as possible? Some Latinos are proud of the fact that they’re juniors who are grown up, just like Wendy’s Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger. We decided to celebrate Wendy’s $5 Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger Meal by recreating some funny childhood photos with our very own Giant Juniors: mitú staffers.

Mariah

My mom is my best friend. No matter how old I get, I’ll always be my mom’s Giant Junior…and I’m totally cool with that! I don’t have to deal with the drama of finding someone to live with, because I have my Ma! I still have my own friends and go to work every day, but there’s nothing better than coming home to chill with my mom.

Diego

fDespite the apprehensive look on my face in the baby pic, I love my brother – and clearly he loves me too. He supported me back then (literally, by holding me in his lap) and he supports me now. We may be older and grown with tattoos and real jobs, but we’re still our parents’ Giant Juniors.

Danny

I’ll be real, I wish I could rock a pair of green shorts as well as my little brother. My bro and I love living with our parents. We have game nights, and since they did such a good job raising us, we like to surprise them with dinner sometimes. Our favorite mid-week treat? A Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger from Wendy’s…obviously.

Jess

It’s crazy that even though my little sister and I are older now, we still look like those same little kids. Also, we were queens of the side pony! Giant Junior queens! Grown up we can still rock this look!

Isaias

I’m seriously thinking about bringing this look back as a grown man. How cute are my older bro and I? Life may have gotten more hectic since that old photo was taken, but we’ll always make time for each other and our family. We can go out and live our lives, but there’s nothing better than kicking it back after a long day in the living room with papi, mami, and my bro. We have our best family convos over food, and particularly when we’re having Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburgers from Wendy’s.

At participating Wendy’s®, for a limited time. Price and participation may vary in AK and HI. Offer includes 4-piece nuggets, small fries and drink. Fresh beef available in the contiguous U.S., Alaska and Canada.

It’s National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day And Here’s Why You Should Consider A Dog From This Puerto Rican Shelter

This Monday marked National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day, a day specifically created to raise awareness of the many different animals across the country waiting to be brought back to their forever homes. In honor of the day, the show “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” used it’s platform to turn the spotlight on the thousands of dogs in Puerto Rico in need of a home.

The Sato Project devotes its time to rescuing abandoned dogs in Puerto Rico.

For National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day, Samantha Bee sent Ashley Nicole Black to the municipality of Yabucoa, rated the poorest of all 78 Puerto Rican municipalities, to learn more about the Sato Project and its efforts. While visiting the shelter’s dogs, Black spoke with Chrissy Beckles, the president of the organization who explained that “prior to Maria for six years we had averaged 350 dogs per year. Since Maria, since September, we’ve rescued over a thousand dogs.”

All of the dogs featured during Black’s visit were rescued after Hurricane Maria.

According to the project’s website, the organization is dedicated to caring for each of the dogs that they rescue from the beaches and streets of Puerto Rico. Each dog is tested for parasites and blood diseases, given vaccinations, and spayed or neutered. The dogs are then taken from the shelter and booked onto flights to either JFK or Newark where they are then ultimately driven to foster homes, forever homes or to sanctuary projects of the Sato Project.

If you’re not prepped to take on a pup, there are other ways to help the project take care of these perritos.

For every dog that the shelter rescues, they have to be prepared to cover $1,000 in costs to ensure the dog’s health and recovery. If you’re not ready to take on the costs and efforts of taking care of a dog, you can always donate to the project or volunteer. Check out ways other ways contribute and help here.
