One Christmas tradition me and my family has done from as long as I can remember is write our letters to Santa Claus. So you bet this tradition lives on through my kids. Every year we write our letters to Santa telling them how good we have been and what they like for Christmas. A few years ago I heard about the Macy's Believe campaign where I already sent letters to santa this was a amazing way to help Make A Wish foundation and get my kids Christmas letters out. So what is Macy's Believe foundation?
Macy’s is in the holiday spirit with their Believe campaign. For every letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to The Make-A-Wish Foundation, up to $1 million! This makes wishes come true for so many children with life-threatening medical conditions. Over the past three years, Macy’s has collected more than 4 million letters to Santa! That is completely amazing!
This year you can download an easy tool to create your letters to Santa. Once it has been written and decorated with fun icons all you need to do is print the letter and bring it into the Santa Mailbox at Macy’s Believe Stations.
While at the Macy’s Believe Station you will need to try the new Macy’s Believe-o-Magic app. Download the iphone/ipod app/android app (from the marketplace) and then make your way to the photo area. Customers will be able to step in the frame and take a photo, which can also be uploaded into a holiday card template to share via e-mail or Facebook. Customers can also preview the magic at home by downloading the application and printing out the marker. When they point “Macy’s Believe-o-Magic” camera at the marker, they can see an animated Virginia ice skating right in their homes! That sounds like so much fun that we cant wait! So make sure you send your children's santa letters through the Macy's drop box and help Make A Wish Foundation as well. It is such a great foundation.
