Macy's Believe campaign and $25 Gift Card Giveaway- 2 winners!
One of my fondest memories growing up was writing to Santa what I wanted for Christmas. I spent a lot of time carefully composing my Christmas list and waiting until Christmas morning. To this day, I still have trouble sleeping on Christmas Eve. It is just so magical. Christmas is my favorite holiday by far. I love the traditions and the togetherness and the whole idea of Christmas. I am happy to share with you Macy’s newest campaign, Believe, which builds on the great success of last year’s holiday effort to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This year, Macy’s is adding to the spirit of “Believe” with a national Santa Tour, an honorary National Believe Day, a “Yes, Virginia ” animated special, and a new TV commercial featuring Queen Latifah.
The nostalgic holiday campaign was inspired by the New York Sun’s famous “Yes, Virginia , there is a Santa Claus” editorial from 1897 and includes letter-writing “Believe Stations” in Macy’s stores across the country. For each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, up to $1 million.
If you are not familiar with Make-A-Wish Foundation they help children with medical problems and critical illnesses by granting their wishes. It is a wonderful foundation with a great cause. I invite you all to gather with your children and sit down with a cup of hot chocolate and write a letter for each of your children to Santa. Even if they can’t write you can help. Santa won’t mind. Use this opportunity to help other children’s dreams come true by bonding with your children and mailing your letters to Santa at your local Macy’s. You can share with your children this little secret. If you mail your letter to Santa at Macy’s no stamp is required because Santa has a special delivery elf that goes and picks up the letters for him.
