A simple mistake on a Sonic Drive-In sign cost the company but ended up in a pretty sizable donation for a church in North Carolina.

According to, someone posted .50¢ for a special promotion on corn dogs Thursday on a sign in front of the restaurant.

They meant that each corn dog was 50 cents, but technically the sign read that each one costs a mere half a penny.

Someone saw this good deal and decided to take full advantage of it, but for a good cause.

One customer tried to buy every corn dog to donate them to a church in the area.

The customer wanted to give the food to those who were less fortunate.

The company realized this was a huge mistake on the sign, but decided to make a donation to the church anyway.
