    It's a shame McDonald's doesn't seem interested in taking them up on the offer. From McDonald's Facebook page:

    Dear Burger King,

    Inspiration for a good cause... great idea.

    We love the intention but think our two brands could do something bigger to make a difference.

    We commit to raise awareness worldwide, perhaps you’ll join us in a meaningful global effort?

    And every day, let's acknowledge that between us there is simply a friendly business competition and certainly not the unequaled circumstances of the real pain and suffering of war.

    We’ll be in touch.

    -Steve, McDonald’s CEO

    P.S. A simple phone call will do next time.

    I wonder if to Burger King, this is good press regardless. If McDonald's accepts, BK looks good; if McDonald's declines, great—BK still looks good.
