Making Winter Wishes Come True

December 11, 2012

With the holidays upon us, we tend to remember the happy memories we had as a kid when opening the gifts. However, not every child has the opportunity to experience that.

New York Cares runs a program called Winter Wishes in which kids write letters wishing for gifts. I explained to everyone that anyone participating would be a Secret Santa and expect nothing in return but that feeling that they made someone's Christmas brighter. After getting a majority of the office signed up, we all received our letters and went on a mission to be the best Santas we could. Some requests were pricey such as a Nintendo 3DS, but people here still fulfilled those wishes. All of our gifts have been mailed out and we feel joy throughout the office.

There were a lot of positive feedback.

  • Kenny: "I really enjoyed it. I liked how it gave the gift giver some leeway but also made sure the child got something meaningful."
  • Meredith : "I saved my kid's letter, I loved it so much. I think I liked it so much because I saw myself in the kid....like when I was her age I wanted to play with the "boy" toys too...I played with Legos and trucks with my brother all the time."
