What ever happened to the wish list you had as a child—the one where you planned to ride an elephant in Africa, touch the Eiffel tower in Paris, and play in the oceans of Hawaii? If you’re like most adults, your list of whimsical dreams was replaced with paying bills, saving for your kid’s college, and planning for retirement. But what if you had the chance to make your number one childhood wish come true?
Hilton Garden Inn wants to make that happen with their second annual Life’s Ultimate To-Do List contest. Like your very own fairy godmother, Hilton Garden Inn will help 10 people cross off the top goal from their bucket lists—and give them $2,000 and airfare to make it happen. All you have to do is tell Hilton your ultimate wish by August 5th and why you deserve the prize. It’s that simple! (And way easier than planning your next vacation.) Check out Hilton Garden Inn’s facebook to see the rules, recent entries, and to submit your own.
Who said only kids get to have all the fun?
