Do you have wishes around the holidays? Real wishes that count and matter towards someone you love or know of in need? Thinking about a wish I have, that would be for my grandfather to be able to feel snow on his skin again this season.
My brave grandfather has been through a lot, the tough man has battled Cancer three times and beat it each time. He's well into his 80's now, and we are more than aware that next holiday season he may not be around to celebrate, that's why we're making the most of each day with him. One thing I know he hasn't felt in awhile is snow.
While I am not able to make my wish for him come true due to his declining health, I can do something powerful with my wish. UPS is looking for people to share wishes, real selfless wishes on behalf of someone else, the wishes they are going to do something with them that will make an impact.
From November 10 2014- December 31, 2014, each wish submitted will earn $1 donated to one of UPS charity partners. How can you submit a wish? Enter through the #WishesDelivered site or using the hashtag #WishesDelivered AND tagging @ups , describing your wonderful wish. Up to $100,000 will be donated, so please be sure to tell your friends and family to share their wishes as well!
How can I help towards my wish even though I cannot complete it? Well I make sure that my family spends time with my grandfather, as well as visits eldery in nursing homes that do not have family come visit them. This is a wonderful way to bring holiday cheer to someone else as well as bring a smile to my face knowing I made an impact on someone.
As the awesome readers I know that you are I want YOU to go out and share your wish on social media and let me know what you wished for in a comment below. Remember that this is an easy way for you to help charity and who doesn't like helping raise money for those in need?
