I know more than a few of you have had the UPS man pull up to your house and deliver a package. Maybe in the package was something you were wishing for, maybe a gift for one of your children. These men and women spend the year and the whole Holiday season delivering those wishes.
My heart breaks for the wishes that can not be delivered to a person’s home, the wishes for no more hunger, the wishes to end poverty and how about the wish to find a cure for cancer? These are wishes that the UPS workers can not deliver but they did start a wonderful campaign called the Wishes Delivered campaign. Every package that ends up on a doorstep started from a wish, and UPSers work tirelessly to deliver everyday wishes throughout the holiday season and beyond. This season, UPS wants to share these magical stories and also make it more special with your help!
For every wish submitted with the hashtag #WishesDelivered, UPS will donate $1 to one of their charity partners (Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Club, or Toys for Tots) up to $100K! How wonderful is that?! I think this is a wonderful campaign.
Wishes can automatically be submitted to the #WishesDelivered site by simply posting the wish on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #WishesDelivered, or going direct to the #WishesDelivered site and submitting there. Campaign Dates for Submitting and Sharing Wishes: November 10, 2014 – December 31, 2014.
Do you have a wish for someone? I know I do. I have a few wishes and one is I wish that this Holiday season, each child would have a gift under their tree. I know this is a big wish, but it hurts me to know there are children that do not receive anything. We do as much as we can by donating to Toys for Tots and this year we went so far as to find a family that did not have the means to give their children holiday gifts, and my family donated a bunch of toys and essentials to the family and we even gave a few presents to the parents, just so they would have something to open..
Now it’s your turn to share What is your wish?
