WASHINGTON, November 11, 2012 – Macy’s 5th Annual Believe Campaign is where letters to Santa mean funds for local wishes via the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Macy’s invites believers of all ages to bring their stamped letters to Santa to their local Macy’s, and for each letter received, Macy’s will donate up to one-millions dollars, $1 at a time.
In the first four years of the annual campaign, Macy’s has donated nearly $5 million to Make-A-Wish as well as supporting events and groups as they all work to help make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Macy’s Making Wishes Come True
At last year’s National Believe Day event at Macy’s Montgomery Mall, kids with life-threatening illnesses were given VIP treatment, as they were presented with their “wish.” It was such a tender, heartwarming holiday moment.
On National Believe Day, Friday December 14, 2012, two more wishes will be granted. One recipient is a local Washington, DC resident! Those wishes come true at the Metro Center Macy’s, 1201 G. Street, N.W. on Friday, December 14 at 1:00pm. Musical guest TAP will be on hand singing holiday songs for all.
Write your letter to Santa and drop it off at any Macy’s. They will make sure it is delivered in time for the holidays and will make a donation to Make A Wish.
Here’s hoping all your holiday wishes come true.
