The holidays are a magical time. A time for family and friends. A time for giving and sharing. For our little ones it’s a time that wishes really do come true. And if you are really, really lucky sometimes you get to help make someone else’s wish come true.
Barbie Wishes From the Heart
Do you have any Barbie fans in your home or maybe on your gift list this year? As you can see I have a huge Barbie girl at home. And this is just a very small sampling of our Barbie collection. Barbie is timeless. She was always on the top of my Christmas list and I’m not the least bit surprised that she’s on the top of my little girl’s list as well.
I just had to share this little beauty that I came across the other day! Every year we sit down as a family and decorate a gingerbread house and I was pretty excited when I found this Barbie one! Molly is counting down the days until we can put it together.
I feel very, very fortunate that, for the most part, I am able to help make my daughter’s wishes come true this holiday season. If you are a regular reader here you know that we had a difficult summer when Molly was ill. But she’s doing amazing now and I know we are going to have a very special Christmas. Thinking about those in need and giving where we can has always been important to my family. But this year more than ever that has really struck home for us. After a struggle our daughter was able to get healthy again. Not every child is that fortunate. Right now, as I’m writing this, there are kids all over this country (and around the world) who are sick, some of them who may not get better.
Right now, this holiday season, Barbie wants to help YOU make wishes come true. And it’s really easy. All you have to do is visit the Barbie my Dreams website and share your wish for someone special in your life. When you do Barbie will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish Canada. You can write your wish or you can get really creative and make a video wish! This is a wonderful opportunity to help your little ones express their love and dreams for someone special in their lives!
Each time you share your wish – on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or email another $1 is donated. And it’s so easy to share. Once you make your wish on the Barbie my Dreams site you will see all of the sharing options. And your wish also gets emailed to you so you can share it again and again!
And not only do you get to help make a wish come true but when you share your Wishes from the Heart you are also entered into a contest to win your wish (up to a maximum value of $2,500). There are also 24 $100 Barbie Prize Packs to be won! The contest closes on December 10th but you can continue to share your wishes and help raise money for Make-A-Wish Canada until December 31st.
I’m also excited to give you one more opportunity to share some wishes and make a difference. Go and watch this adorable and heart warming video of some awesome little girls sharing their wishes, not just for themselves but for the ones they love, over on the Barbie Youtube channel and the share it! Each time you share the video another $1 will be donated to Make-A-Wish.
I’d love to know what wish you or your little one made with Barbie Wishes from the Heart.
