Have you noticed the new festive holiday to-go cups at Tim Hortons restaurant? More than just a warm and fuzzy cup to get you in the holiday spirit, these cups are also adorned with the hashtag #WarmWishes.
This festive cup and message is part of a new social media campaign that encourages Canadians to do good for others this holiday season.
Each time someone shares a good deed using the #WarmWishes hashtag on Twitter or Instagram, Tim Hortons will pay-it-forward and donate a toque to a child in need through the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. Tim Hortons’ goal is to provide to 10,000 children with a warm and cozy toque this holiday season.
You might see me sharing the news of this hashtag and initiative on my own social media channels, yet I’m also paying-it-forward behind the scenes as well.
Before school one
chilly cold Alberta morning, the kids and I stopped to get some Tim Hortons coffee and muffins for the teachers and staff at my girls school.
Like good holiday helpers, we snuck into the staff room and laid out the goodies before the bell rang. Hope they were surprised by our anonymous gift – I don’t think any of them read my blog, yet if they do, I guess we’re busted coming down the chimney.
Keep in mind, you don’t have to buy people things to do a good deed this holiday season, it could be as simple as holding a door open for someone or shovelling their sidewalk.
It’s truly the little gifts from the heart that matter, even if it’s buying a coffee for the person behind you in a Tims line. Every bit helps, every act of kindness counts and each warm wish goes noticed by someone.
Lets help Tim Hortons reach their donation goal! Share your #WarmWishes on Twitter and Instagram and start a huge pay-it-forward avalanche this holiday season!
