As the Holiday season draws near, C Spire’s second annual “Christmas Wish” program has begun. The popular contest returns for its second year as the company aims to give consumers a chance to make their biggest Christmas wishes come true.
The Christmas wish program can grant wishes for up to four winners this year. Last year, C Spire helped a Biloxi woman pay for cancer treatment, sent a Madison family on a dream vacation and helped a hard-working Southaven woman pay for Christmas presents for her family.
Dave Miller, manager of media relations for C Spire, discussed what makes programs like “Christmas Wish” so important around the holidays.
“You never know what the person working next to you, or your neighbor or someone in the community is going through, and there are so many challenges that people face at this time of the year, so it’s a great way for us as a company to give back and support people by granting wishes,” Miller said.
Miller urged those who will participate to dream big, and says that the company is proud to be able to assist in granting these wishes.
“We want people to wish big. It’s that time of year that you dream, you want to be with family, you want to give and receive gifts and that spirit is infused through this program. Our deepest desire as a company is that we are able to help people at their point of need at this time of the year,” Miller said.
No purchase is necessary to participate, and individuals must be 18 years old (19 in Alabama) and live in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama to participate in the contest. Entries are limited to one per person and will be judged on originality and creativity, focus on the creative assignment and overall appeal.
A panel of judges from C Spire and its advertising agency will select the winners which will be announced on December 20th. To register, individuals can register online at www.cspire.com/wish, fill out the form and follow instructions to submit an entry for themselves, another family member or friend.
