The winter holiday season is a season of giving. We give to our friends, or family, our neighbors, and the less fortunate. This holiday season UPS is making giving a little easier with their #WishesDelivered campaign.
This holiday season UPS will donate $1 (up to $100k) to one of their various charity partners for every Twitter, or Instagram post hash tagged #WishesDelivered along with thoughtful wish that would help others. These charities include Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Club, and Toys for Tots.
To participate you can either have your wish automatically submitted by creating a post with the hashtag #WishesDelivered along with your wish, or by visiting the #WishesDelivered site. Submissions are accepted from November 10, 2014 until December 31, 2014.
The best wishes are those that are selfless and meaningful. I know my wish would be to end the spread of Ebola and to ensure that no more children die of hunger. The holiday season is not a time to be superficial, but to benefit the well being of others who may be less fortunate. I know that I would like a new cell phone, but I would love for mankind to come together to spread peace, end hunger, and stop disease.
Each year local businesses and community members in my area fill up school busses with toys and other goodies for young children. The joy this spreads means so much to our community. Everyone comes together to help families in need and you can really tell that it makes such an impact of the families that this program helps.
So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to Twitter or Instagram right now and use #WishesDelivered in a post talking about your wish to get your wish submitted. Remember, by doing so $1 will be donated to a charity! I cannot wait to read them!
