In celebration of Believe Day on Friday, December 14th, Make-A-Wish® Wyoming and Macy’s are partnering to inspire kindness and generosity from coast to coast. Three year old Aliyah from Casper wished to meet the princesses, and Macy’s is hosting a “Welcome Home” party for Aliyah on Believe Day at the Casper Eastridge Mall. Join us on Friday, December 14th at 6pm to welcome Aliyah home from her magical wish experience and help to inspire other Wyoming children to Believe in the magic of the season! Aliyah will be writing her own letter to Santa and mailing it in Macy’s Santa Mail Letterbox, and she would like you to join her. Macy’s is donating $1 for every letter to Santa mailed in its letterbox to Make-A-Wish, up to $1,000,000. However, on Believe Day on December 14th, Macy’s will donate $2 for every letter dropped off at the store!
Last year, Make-A-Wish Wyoming collected nearly 4000 letters throughout the Christmas Season from Macy’s in Casper. With your help, we can collect even more this year. Come be a part of all the magic and be sure to join us in writing letter to Santa for Believe Day!
WHEN & WHERE:
Friday, December 14th @ 6pm. – Macy’s in The Eastridge Mall, Casper
ABOUT BELIEVE DAY:
Is there a Santa Claus? It was a question asked by 8 year old Virginia who wrote to The Sun to find out once and for all if Santa Claus really exists. The Sun not only printed her letter, the editor wrote back, “Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.” The Believe Campaign sponsored by Macy’s is meant to inspire children across the country as they write their letters to Santa – and help raise funds to grant wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. Letters are accepted through December 25th. See the original newspaper clipping here.
Celebrating 27 years of granting wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, Make-A-Wish Wyoming has brought hope, strength and joy to more than 400 local children through its wish granting process. Last year, the Wyoming chapter granted 35 wishes. For more information about the Wyoming chapter and how you can share the power of a wish® please call 888.WYO.WISH.
