This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of UPS. All opinions are 100% mine.

The holidays are almost here and that means more and more people get into the spirit of giving. If you really think about it, almost every package that ends up on a doorstep started from a wish, and UPS works tirelessly to deliver packages throughout the holiday season and beyond. This season, UPS wants to highlight the people and organizations who are dedicated to making their communities, country and the world a better place by “delivering wishes” in their own way. 

UPS will be creating a series of videos and images that displays their commitment to the effort and both celebrates and spotlights the individuals and organizations. They are also asking the public to share their stories about a person in the community that deserves to be celebrated for their commitment to problem solving for the greater good.

I wish that every child had a family to celebrate the holidays – whether it’s their own or with someone else’s family. I’ve been very blessed to not have to spend the holidays on my own, however, I did have the holidays where I didn’t have a boyfriend or husband. I remember how lonely I was. I can’t even imagine being a young child with no one to spend the holidays with. Ways that we try to help out in our community is by donating toys through the Toys for Tots program and food or toys through the Boys & Girls Club of America.

We want to know your wish as well! Tell us your general wish for the greater good or how you help make wishes come true by being a “problem solver.” For each of these wish stories shared with the hashtag UPS #WishesDelivered, UPS will donate $1 to one of their charity partners (Boys & Girls Club of America, World Food Programme, Toys for Tots Literacy Program, The Salvation Army, The UN Refugee Agency) up to $150K!! 

Plus, your wish could automatically be a part of the #WishesDelivered Site by simply posting the wish on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #WishesDelivered, or by going directly to the #WishesDelivered site and submitting it there.

I love it when brands help spread holiday cheer and especially when they raise money for charities! This is an awesome cause and I hope everyone gets involved!

What’s your wish?
