As part of National Believe Day, Macy's will help Make-A-Wish grant more than 50 special wishes across the country to create a day of “Wishes Across America” for children with life- threatening medical conditions. Macy's “Believe” campaign, which runs through December 24, invites children of all ages to mail their letters to Santa at their local Macy's in the red Santa Mail letterbox. For every letter mailed, Macy's will donate $1, up to $1 million, to Make-A-Wish.

For every stamped letter mailed in-store on National Believe Day only, Macy's will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, above the existing $1 million campaign goal. With the help of “believers,” this new element will allow Macy's to deliver a special $1 million day and reach up to $2 million in donations for Make-A-Wish for this year's campaign.
