Every year New York Cares calls upon those feeling the holiday spirit to answer the Winter Wishes of more than 35,000 local children, teens, seniors, and families across NYC. While thousands of letters have been answered thus far, Hurricane Sandy has increased the number of letters looking for answers, and there are still hundreds of wishes left to be granted. If you want to spread the holiday cheer and make sure all those who wanted a gift this year receive one, consider creating a team of Winter Wish makers with your office, friends, family, community group, or on your own as an individual, and transform the holiday season one New Yorker at a time. Once you’re signed up you can check the Winter Wishes registry, purchase a gift via, and have it shipped directly to New York Cares who will distribute the gifts. Make this holiday great for someone with this simple gesture.
