Children everywhere have already written or will be writing their letters to Santa with their endless wish lists. Some of those letters will be mailed off to the North Pole or maybe dropped off at Santa’s mailbox at the mall but this year I encourage you to do something a little different with your child’s Santa letter. Take your letter and drop it in the special Santa’s collection mailboxes at your local Macy’s.

“Why Macy’s?” You are probably wondering. Well this year, Macy’s is donating $1.00 for each letter dropped in their special collection mailboxes to the Make a Wish Foundation. (Up to $1,000,000.) 

Macy’s is also encouraging American’s to have the holiday spirit with their Believe Meter. The Believe Meter will measure America’s belief, based on our collective spirit – including the amount of letters received and other current events that reflect the season’s generosity.

There’s some fun stuff on the Macy’s website with their Believe Campaign. They have some free downloadable stationary you can print out for your child to write their letter to Santa on.

If you need some help getting in the holiday spirit check out the Belief section on the Make a Wish website. You can read some of the letters to Santa written by Make a Wish Foundation kiddos and they are precious.  (Click on Virginia’s letter to Santa to read them.)

Since he is such a high tech little dude, Noah normally emails his letter to Santa. (In fact, he’s already written it; I’ll post it soon, it’s hilarious!) But because I believe in the Make a Wish Foundation and love that the proceeds are going to them, we’ll make a special trip to Macy’s and drop his letter to Santa in the mailbox there too.
