Macy’s and Santa Work Together To Make Wishes Come True

Last night was a big night in Hyannis, Massachusetts. Santa came to town. And this time he skipped the sleigh. Instead, he let Rudolph take the night off and Santa hopped on a bus that dropped him off at Macy’s. It was quite the sight to behold!

Young and old alike gathered at the mall eagerly awaiting his arrival. There were carolers singing. Cups of hot chocolate passed around. And lots of little people clutching their letters to Santa close to their chest as they stood on their tippy toes while watching for the jolly old soul to march through Macy’s doors.

My girls were also anxiously awaiting his arrival. At our Macy’s there was a desk set up where kids could pen their letters to Santa. And as Leela worked  on her letter, Shannon thought back on the year and pointed out instances where she thought she had been very good. Clearly she was practicing her pitch to Santa in order to get the items on the top of her holiday wish list.

Both girls wrote their letters to Santa and dropped them off in the Macy’s Santa Letterbox. This mailbox is something special because Macy’s has partnered with Santa to make a bunch of wishes come true.

For every letter that’s dropped off at the Macy’s Santa Letterbox located in stores, Macy’s will donate $1 to the Make A Wish Foundation. Your child’s wish list and good tidings to Santa and his buddies at the North Pole means lots of wishes will come true for children going through difficult times.

Macy’s will be donating up to $1,000,000 to the Make A Wish Foundation. So, make your way to your local Macy’s to get your letter into the box. It’s an easy and fun way to make a difference this holiday season!

Santa still has a bunch of locations to hit on his national tour. Be sure to check out the schedule and bring the kids to Macy’s to meet the big guy in person. Be sure to pick up something special for yourself while you’re at Macy’s. You’ve been very good this year!
