Students can also host a November Macy’s Believe letter writing Campaign. Macy’s invites believers of all ages to bring their letters to Santa to their local Macy’s, and for each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million. Letters are written in November and delivered to a local Macy’s on Believe Day. E-mail email@example.com to request a Believe Day packet.
