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

Can you believe it? There are less than two weeks to the end of the year. I do feel a rush as there are so many things I need to get organized, and errands I need to run before the kids’ schools go on winter break. I’ve ordered the kids’ surprises to arrive before Wednesday next week. Every time I check their shipping status I see one of them trying to get a peak over my shoulder haha. I am not giving it away yet. 🙂

This year we added a girl elf to our elf in the shelf tradition; now we have one girl, one boy.  I got so used to having those little buddies around (and arranging them in interesting places each night) that I even feel nostalgic that they’ll leave until next year. I am guessing most of you also have your presents ready by now for your loved ones, and maybe even done your charitable giftings already as well. There is one more charitable act you can do. You can say happy holidays with wishes delivered. UPS #WishesDelivered


Before we ring in 2016, I want to take a moment to remind you UPS’s lovely #WishesDelivered Campaign. ( See detailed information here in my initial post) You can participate in this charitable act by posting your own selfless wish on Twitter by tweeting, by sharing a picture on Instagram, or by visiting the campaign hub and submitting a story of your own. UPS will donate $1 to one of their charity partners up to $150K donation. I would love it if you shared a link of your wish/submission in the comments section below. What’s your wish?

I love seeing all the people around me doing their best to deliver wishes to others. From collecting books and toys for children, to putting together care packages for teens in need, there are many lovely things happening. I love the #WishesDelivered campaign, as it is super easy to participate in, and you can make a difference in someone’s life.

My wish for the greater good, as a mom, is for the kids in the world. I wish all of them would  have a happy, healthy life in which they are provided for, supported with love, protected, and educated to reach their full potential.


I am also sharing a touching video you won’t want to miss to the end of this post named “Handmade Gifts of Hope”. It’s a great reminder of how a lot of people are making significant efforts to spread holiday cheer to those that need it so much. Very touching.
