OAKVILLE, ON, Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ - Everyday, Americans step up to help one another. Whether it's helping a neighbor carry groceries, buying coffee for colleagues or donating clothing to a shelter, these small acts of kindness go a long way to spread warmth in our communities. Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is recognizing these good deeds with its #WarmWishes holiday campaign. From now until December 20, Americans can share their #WarmWishes on social media for a chance to win one of three donations of $5,000 to a charity of their choice.
