The magic of Macy’s Believe campaign returns for the ninth year to celebrate the season’s spirit of generosity and goodwill while benefitting Make-A-Wish. From November 4 through December 24, 2016, “Believers” of all ages can bring their stamped letters to Santa to a local Macy’s store or send a letter by visiting macys.com/believe. For each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million, to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
This season also marks a major milestone, as Macy’s celebrates $100 million in total giving to Make-A-Wish since 2003. That represents nearly three wishes granted every day for the past 13 years, and more than 2.4 million people impacted in total wishes that Macy’s has helped grant, including wish kids and their families, volunteers, community groups, nurses, doctors and more.
Four Macy’s stores within Make-A-Wish® Central New York’s service region are participating in the Believe campaign. Those stores include Destiny USA in Syracuse, Sangertown Square in New Hartford, Great Northern Mall in Clay, and Oakdale Mall in Johnson City.
The annual Macy’s Believe Campaign in support of Make-A-Wish kicked off Nov. 1 and will continue through Dec. 24. For each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million, to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
