This time of year we tend to be more outwardly focused, whether donating to our favorite charities, volunteering our time to help others, or shopping for the perfect gifts to make those we love happy. There is a palpable feeling of excitement and good will in the air, and Capital One is hoping to help make the holidays a little brighter this year by helping to share and grant people’s wish for others with the #WishForOthers campaign.
Capital One is asking people to share their Wish For Others, whether a family member, a friend, a neighbor, or a community, via a video tagged with #WishForOthers on Twitter, Instagram, or the Capital One Facebook page from now through Dec. 23, for a chance to make it come true.
This year, Capital One is going to make wishes come true!
Here are some heartwarming, thoughtful, and even funny wishes others shared:
I have close friends that volunteer at an old church that went a sort of rejuvenation about ten years ago because of these extremely dedicated volunteers. St. Spyridon is in a rather high risk area, yet the volunteers worked hard so the church could open its doors to the children of the neighborhood with a quality school that was safe. The problem? The church is so underfunded they can’t repair much of the damage that resulted to the building’s structure after years of neglect, so they are very limited it what they can offer. My wish is that they would receive funding to renovate more of the school portion of the building, so they can open up more classrooms, and bring in many more children who need a quality education in a safe environment.
What’s your wish for others this holiday season? Do you have a wish for a friend, neighbor, a parent, or your community? You can share your #WishForOthers via a 30 second Facebook or Instagram video, or a photo on Twitter, Instagram or Capital One’s Facebook page, for a chance to make someone’s wish come true! Here is mine:
