On July 18, 2005 India West reported, "A periodical on Hinduism based [in Kauai, Hawaii] has vowed to use the windfall from a fast-food chain class-action lawsuit settlement to increase its subscription in perpetuity by at least 1,000, or subsidize even more subscriptions, according to a press release from the Hindu Heritage Endowment.

The endowment, publishers of the quarterly Hinduism Today, received a check of $254,773.19 from fast-food giant McDonald's as part of a $10-million court ordered settlement following a lawsuit that accused the Oakbrook, Ill.-based restaurant chain of misleading consumers with its 'vegetarian fries' that contained beef extract."
