Have You Made Your Wish? #WishesDelivered

December 16, 2014Allison Murray

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


I’m just going to give you the blunt edge of the fact that I am not always emotional in the kind of way that women are who cry at the end of movies or when a touching commercial comes on. Come to think of it, I doubt I have EVER cried after watching a commercial. The times I do cry are the exception, NOT the rule.

In the last few months I have recently cried twice about things I’ve seen on a screen that I can recall. While binge watching the entire second season of Derek a man died and I was all like, “oh, poor guy that is sad” but when a dog died in the same episode I’m calling people up hysterical and having a hard time breathing. Crazy isn’t it? It takes something different to give me that kind of emotion.


The second time I have cried in recent memory was a few minutes ago. I watched this video all about how UPS delivered one of the millions of wishes people have all over the world. See this very kind hearted lady wanted to take the books that we in the U.S. have shredded and instead package them up and send them to the learning children in Malawi.

Now isn’t that just clean amazing? What a wish! And how amazing that UPS went and snagged these books and actually sent thousands of them all the way to Malawi! It just blows my mind! And so I cried. I cried because this woman cared so much for the children of a nation she had never even met and I cried because she was there to see her dream come true.

That’s something I’m big on (as you may have guessed from the name of this blog). Dreams are important. They can give us hope and fuel us to do something more.

Now I’ve already shared my wish and I want to know… have you made yours yet? What’s your wish? Because for every wish up to 100K UPS is donating a dollar to charity for every wish made with the hashtag #WishesDelivered. You can share these wishes on social media or head on over to the #WishesDelivered site if you’re not an instagram fanatic like the rest of us :)

So go and make that wish. But before you go, see the video that actually made this gal cry. Maybe it will give you inspiration to wish big!
