Spread Some Good This Holiday Season with Tim Hortons #WarmWishes #Timfluencer {giveaway}

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We may not have snow, but decorations are popping up everywhere in the stores, and neighbours have begun to put up their lights. The lady across the street even has her tree up! I have been listening to Christmas music for a couple of weeks now, since Sirius XM's Holly station came online for the season. And today I got my first Tim Horton's festive cup of 2015, along with a box of holiday doughnuts. Yum! I love the cup design - like a thick, cozy sweater to warm those winter days.

This time of year is filled with special holidays, and family time, and giving back. And this year Tim Horton's wants to encourage Canadians to embrace the spirit of giving, and get out there and do some good. They are encouraging us to do good deeds, and bring some joy or a helping hand to others at this special time of year, and, to up the ante a bit, they are running a social media contest where we can share what we've done. Maybe we can inspire others with our good deeds, giving them ideas on how they can make a difference for someone in their lives. We can all bring a little warmth to these winter days and nights by spreading some kindness around.

Here's how it works -
  • The campaign will last for six weeks, starting with this week (Nov. 16). 
  • Each week has a new theme, and Canadians are encouraged to perform a good deed in the spirit of that weekly theme.
  • Share your good deed or act of kindness on Twitter and/or Instagram, using the hashtag #WarmWishes and tagging @TimHortons.
  • Each week, a random #WarmWishes participant will be rewarded the opportunity to donate $5000 to the charity of their choice to help spread even more #WarmWishes! Amazing, right?! 
The themes for each week are:
  • Give a little warmth (Monday, November 16)
  • Connect with Someone (Monday, November 23)
  • Brighten Someone’s Day (Monday, November 30)
  • Lend a Helping Hand (Monday, December 7)
  • Spread Cheer (Monday, December 14)
  • Give Back (Monday, December 21)

What's more, I am delighted to let you know that Tim Hortons is letting me spread some #WarmWishes of my own! Each week I'll choose one of my followers who has participated in the #WarmWishes challenge, and give them a $25 Tim Hortons e-gift card to recognize them for their good deeds. I'll do the selection on Monday mornings, so folks have the full 7 days to spread their kindness and share the news too.

To enter my weekly giveaway, first enter the main contest, as described above. Then come back to this post and submit your entry via the contest widget below. I'm asking everyone to share the url of their #WarmWishes contest entry so we can all be sure to see each other's good deeds. I'm actually pretty excited to be gathering them here in one spot, and I'm looking forward to reading about all your ideas for spreading some love and warmth. 

Each week is a separate giveaway, and I'll have a new contest widget for each one, to keep things clean and make selection easy. The giveaways are open to Canadian residents only. Best of luck!
