TALES OF GIVING: OUR WISH FOR OTHERS

0 Permalink

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

Every year before Christmas I clean out our embarrassingly large selection of toys to make room for incoming gifts. My rule is if it hasn’t been touched in the last 5 months, it goes. I take bags and bags to a local charity and always feel good on my way home, imagining a child playing with the same toys that my kids enjoyed. This year, I got my 3 year old Miss P. in on the clearing action. It was one of the best things I could have done. Days after we we put older toys in bags together she came up to me randomly holding a toy from her room that I hadn’t seen in awhile. She looked up and said “Mama, can we give this to the kids too? I don’t think I need it anymore.”

No matter what your age, who you are, or where you came from – giving feels great. Capital One is getting in on that good feeling by helping to grant Wish For Others this holiday season:

We love to read in this house. Hubby with his zombie apocalypse books, me with my historical fiction, Miss P. with her Dr. Seuss, and the D Man with anything he can get his hands (and mouth) on. We want all kids to have access to books and have an opportunity to love them as much as we do, but we’ll start small…

So tell us, what’s your wish? Share it on your Twitter or Instagram page using hashtag #WishForOthers OR the Capital One Facebook Page through December 23rd and maybe it will come true! Surprisingly they don’t have a magic wand, so don’t get too far-fetched.
