This is one of the busiest times for UPS as they deliver packages on doorsteps containing items that started from a wish. They work tirelessly to deliver everyday wishes throughout the holiday season. This year UPS wants to share these wishes and magical stories through their campaign #WishesDelivered site.
For every wish submitted with the hastag #WishesDelivered, UPS will donate $1 to one of their charity partners up to 100K! Their partners which include, Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Club, and Toys for Tots makes me think of my own wish this season.
I can't help but think how blessed our two kiddos are. When my little lady was writing her letter, I was already imagining all of the toys and goodies she will be getting from family, friends, and us. Her chances of getting what she asks for in her letter are pretty good.
But not all kids are as lucky as her. My heart breaks to think about the kids who won't get a thing. The kids who have a parent incarcerated or are living in the streets. A toy may be something small but to a kid who has nothing it brings joy. A few years ago, I volunteered at a Toys for Tots party and remember how happy these kids were to have their party and receive their toy. My wish is for kids who are less fortunate. I wish that no kid goes without receiving this holiday season. Whether that is new toy or a warm meal.
To help make this happen the little lady and I are going to do what we can. Before The holidays, we always clear out toys that she no longer wants to play with and bring them to the Salvation Army. She will also be picking out a toy in the store to buy and donate to Toys for Tots. I want her to be grateful for the things she has and learn the importance of giving to those less fortunate.
