Children of all ages across the globe are getting ready for National Believe Day on December 8. “This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Macy’s Believe campaign, which to date has raised an astounding $15 million for Make-A-Wish,” shared their Facebook post.

From now until December 24 you can visit your local Macy’s store to drop off that all important letter to Santa with your wish list, and “Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish” for each letter that goes toward helping continue the good work of granting life-changing wishes to children battling cancer and other critical illnesses such as in the YouTube video from last year’s event.

With Christmas around the corner, now is the time to start making that list and checking it twice. “Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus,” is never more important to remember and share the time-honored tradition of writing a letter to jolly ole’ Saint Nick while giving back to an organization that has granted the wishes of many children whose holiday’s may not always be merry and bright.

Besides writing a letter there are also other fun ways to remind the kids Santa’s on his way and he’s making his list and checking it twice. According to an article by abc13.com, you can now have your kids call Santa at the North Pole. “By calling 951-262-3062, you will get a voice recording of Santa asking the kiddos to leave their Christmas list.” Remind them that Santa knows if they’ve been naughty or nice.

So get those wishes going and start making your list as time is ticking until Christmas day is here. What better way to commemorate the holiday season knowing your letter dropped off at your local Macy’s Believe Campaign headquarters will make a difference in the eyes of a child who is dealing with cancer.
