Macy’s has declared today National Believe Day in honor of its annual “Believe” campaign to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. To commemorate the day this year, the Make-A-Wish Foundation™ and Macy’s will grant more than 50 “Wishes Across America” to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
You can be part of the goodwill by simply encouraging your kids to write a letter to Santa. Through December 24, Macy’s “Believe” campaign invites children of all ages to mail letters to Santa using Macy’s Santa Mail Letterboxes. For each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 , up to $1 million, to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The Macy’s Believe campaign is in its fourth year, and I am so excited that my daughter is finally old enough to participate. (I guess we could have done it last year, when she was 2, but it will mean more this year.) Since K is just learning to write her letters, I am going to use this tracing a letter to Santa template to assist. Then we will head down to Macy’s to mail her letter. (Of course, I will do a little switcheroo and have her mail a photo copy of the letter so I can keep the original.) For older kids, Macy’s has brought letter writing to the digital age and now offers an online letter writing tool complete with decorative icons that you can fill in, print and mail to Santa.
This year, Christmas magic also comes to life this year with Macy’s Believe-o-Magic app. Download the app before heading to Macy’s and your kids can have their picture taken with their favorite animated characters from stars from the animated holiday special “Yes, Virginia.” See how the app works in this video:
Yes, Virgina, there is a Santa Clause, and I believe. How about you?
