This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of UPS. All opinions are 100% mine.
During the winter that I fell in love with my future husband, he took a seasonal job that ended up being one of the most fun and memorable jobs ever…he worked alongside a UPS delivery man to assist him delivering all of those holiday packages on time. He called himself the Chocolate Santa (since he got to wear one of those iconic chocolate brown uniforms and go house to house delivering packages and making people smile).
On one of his routes, he recognized my name on one of the packages and made sure that he was the one to run that up to my door. It was a fun surprise.
Every package that ends up on a doorstep started from a wish – whether it was a wish for a particular gift or a wish to be remembered during the holidays – and UPS employees work non-stop through the holiday season and beyond to be the bearers of those wish deliveries.
This season, UPS wants to take wish delivery to a whole new level with their #WishesDelivered campaign. Their hope is to share magical stories of wishes – wishes made, wishes granted, and wishes delivered.
For every wish submitted using the hashtag #WishesDelivered between November 10, 2014 – December 31, 2014, UPS will donate $1 to one of their charity partners, (Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Club, or Toys for Tots) up to $100,000!
Easily submit your wish to Twitter or Instagram with the campaign hashtag #WishesDelivered and it will automatically be submitted. You can also go directly to the UPS #WishesDelivered site and submit there. For every wish that is submitted, UPS will be donating $1 (up to $100,000) to their charity partners, so submit your wish and start giving back this season!
While I might love to wish for a new phone or some new furniture for my house (which I desperately need!), the Wishes Delivered campaign is not about me and you….it’s about reaching out to others and wishing for something selfless and meaningful.
I’ve got a wish in the works that I am so excited about, but I’ll be blogging about that shortly.
What’s your wish? Don’t forget to use the hashtag #WishesDelivered on Twitter or Instagram to let UPS know about your wish!
