Wishes Delivered through UPS

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of UPS for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
The generosity and hearts of people around me this year have been so inspiring.  This year, my husband's coworker sent home a small slip of paper with him that turned into a great way for our family to give back.  He was joining his church in their wish that every child would have a gift this holiday day season.  They were filling shoe boxes to be sent off to impoverished countries filled with toys and hygiene items for kids. 
We joined in and created our own box with the kids.  Our wish is that every child have a box that would give them joy.  It was a lesson for my four year old who can't fully grasp how someone can have nothing.  She's grown up with all her needs met and more.  At first she was sour about having to get a present for someone she didn't know and nothing for herself, but once we started picking out items her attitude changed.  There is something about giving that changes your heart.  It allows empathy to enter and gives you an opportunity to think about someone else.  We sent our box to the head quarters where it will be delivered to a child in need.  Our wish was delivered for someone.  
This holiday season UPS is also spreading those wishes.  By sharing our wish on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #WishesDelivered, they are donating $1 one of their partner charities (Boys & Girls Club of America, World Food Programme, Toys for Tots Literacy Program, The Salvation Army, The UN Refugee Agency) They've also celebrated regular people who have made it their mission to spread love and joy to others.  Leslye is a beautiful woman who creates comfort scarves to donate to women's shelters.  This video truly touched my heart!  A UPS #WishesDelivered!
What is your wish for someone else his holiday season?  A dollar will be donated for every wish and photo wish shared with the hashtag #WishesDelivered!  This is a simple and great cause for anyone to join in.  What’s your wish?  Share it today on the  #WishesDelivered Site
