This is my 3rd time posting about Macy’s Believe program, and once again, I am honored to tell my readers all about it.
If you’re not sure what the Believe program is all about, I recommend you head over to www.macys.com/believe to learn more about the program, and create your own letter. You can also find a portal to other great Believe elements including the “Believe” Activity Guide, Celebrity Santa letters, and the Santa Tour Tracker for believers for all ages who want to meet the man himself!
To sum it all up for you, though, there are several parts to the Macy’s Believe program.
First, children of all ages are encouraged to drop their letters to Santa in the Santa Mail letterbox at their local Macy’s store. Each letter will earn a $1 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation – up to $1 MILLION. It’s an easy way to participate, and my kids have always loved dropping their letters in the big, special mailbox.
Next, Macy’s Facebook Fans have an exclusive chance to earn up to an additional $250K for Make-A-Wish by winning the Believe Challenge game. Based on the cartoon special Yes, Virginia, fans are challenged to help Virginia and Ollie get their letters to Santa. Each winner will earn another $1! If you’re on facebook, head over to www.facebook.com/macys to join the fun – and the cause.
Then there’s “Yes, Virginia” a fun, animated special. It will re-air on CBS on Friday, December 17, at 8pm ET. (That’s tomorrow!) You can also find “Yes, Virginia” as a DVD and book! Each sale at Macy’s helps spread kindness with a donation of 10% of the purchase price to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Yes, Virginia” fans can also purchase special ornaments and a snow globe, all inspired by the original story that continues to make a believer of everyone!
Also, don’t miss out on the Macy’s National Santa Tour – For the second year in a row, Santa will embark on a whirlwind American tour, spreading joy to girls and boys cross the country following his celebratory kickoff of the holiday season in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®. Stopping in 26 new cities across the U.S. through Dec. 22, Santa’s National Tour will give children the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet the man himself. Visit www.macys.com/believe for scheduled stops and to track Santa’s latest location.
As you can see, there are lots of ways to get involved in the Macy’s Believe program and help out a wonderful foundation – The Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Head over to the Facebook Fan Page to play the game, then check out www.macys.com/believe, and then head on out to your local Macy’s to drop of your Santa letters. Together, we can make a real difference this Christmas!
