Tim Hortons #WarmWishes campaign surprises Canadians


OAKVILLE, ON, Canada – Yesterday, Tim Hortons released its annual #WarmWishes video, capturing the surprise and delight of more than 150 deserving Canadians from across the country.

Unsuspecting Guests from six communities received kind wishes, nominated on their behalf by friends, family and neighbours during one day on November 16.

Since the launch of the campaign three years ago, 2016 marks the biggest year yet for #WarmWishes, building upon last year’s transformation of a restaurant in Grimsby, Ontario to a House of Warm Wishes.

Requests as small, but meaningful, as delivering hot chocolate and Timbits® for nurses, raking leaves for a neighbour and giving flowers to a partner were submitted in the Cup of Good Deeds and fulfilled by Tim Hortons staff.

Additional deeds like providing food and supplies to animal shelters, donating baby formula and diapers to a pregnancy centre, and delivering books to a school library, among many others, helped communities come together.

“We know Canadians want to give back during the holiday season, but they may not always have the time or resources to do so,” says Sami Siddiqui, President, Tim Hortons Canada.

“We feel that’s why this campaign continues to grow year after year. This is our small way of celebrating Canadians giving back and making this a season of warm wishes.”

The latest #WarmWishes video, filmed simultaneously across the country in Moncton, Montreal, Toronto, Hamilton, Calgary and Vancouver, beautifully captures the Canadian spirit.

The video showcases the generosity of Tim Hortons Guests by sharing stories and good deeds they requested for deserving individuals in their communities this holiday season. Check out the video by clicking here.

Guests still hoping to participate in this year’s #WarmWishes campaign have until December 14, 2016 to submit their good deed request via social media.

Using #WarmWishes and @TimHortons on Twitter or Instagram, simply describe the good deed needed for a friend or neighbour for the chance to have it granted.

The deed can be up to $5,000 in value, for more entry rules and regulations please visit TimHortons.com/WarmWishes.
