Write Letters to Santa, and Help Local Wishes Come True!

Macy's 5th Believe Campaign is on! For each "Letter to Santa," Macy's will donate $1 up to $1 million to make wishes come true for local kids with life-threatening medical conditions.

Believers of all ages...there's a simple way to make wishes come true for local kids with life-threatening medical conditions. It's the 5th Anniversary of Macy's Believe Holiday Campaign to benefit Make-A-Wish. Bring your stamped letter to Macy’s, addressed to Santa at the North Pole, and drop it into the Macy’s Santa Mail Letterbox from now until Dec. 24. For each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish up to $1 million.

All money collected at DC, Maryland, and Virginia area stores will make local wishes come true for local children. Special events in Washington, Baltimore, and nationwide, will present local children with their wishes on Friday December 14.

And, the Santa Bus Tour will be winding its way around the country, escorting Santa Claus with the horsepower of a tour bus (giving the reindeer a rest), including a special appearance in Bethesda, at Montgomery Mall, on Monday December 10 at 6 p.m., including a free holiday show by local teens. Details will be updated on the Patch events calendar.

“Writing a letter to Santa and delivering it to your local Macy’s store is a quick, simple and fun way to help wishes come true this holiday season. We are confident that kids and kids-at-heart will make this a record-setting year for the Believe campaign,” said David A. Williams, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. “We are thankful for Macy’s continued support and dedication to creating memorable, life-lasting wish experiences that help wish kids feel better and sometimes even get better.
