Macy’s team up with Make-A-Wish® to grant “Wishes Across America”

Plus, Macy’s celebrates National Believe Day with double donation to benefit Make-A-Wish

Help celebrate the season of giving with Macy’s sixth annual National Believe Day. As the heart of Macy’s Believe campaign in support of Make-A-Wish, National Believe Day aims to inspire Americans to spread the spirit of generosity during the holiday season. 

In Fayetteville, 11-year-old Jaelon’s wish to have a shopping spree is being granted on December 12. Jaelon, who has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, will spend the morning at Macy’s Cross Creek Mall shopping for a new suit. Don’t miss him arrive by limousine at 10 am, where he will be escorted by his parents and met by Macy’s associates as his wish comes true in style.

Everyone can also join Macy’s and Make-A-Wish as wish celebrations unfold through the new interactive Believe Together Hub – macysbelievetogether.com – which allows anyone to view videos, tweets, posts and photos posted on social media to view in real time as wishes are granted on National Believe Day.

To participate, log onto one of your favorite social networks (Facebook, Instagram or Twitter), share the most special moments of Jaelon’s wish celebration using the hashtags #MacysBelieve and #JaelonNC, then view the wish unfold on macysbelievetogether.com. Even those who don’t attend can participate by sending a special message via social media using the same hashtags or sharing content directly from macysbelievetogether.com.

Macy’s Believe campaign invites kids of all ages to bring their stamped letters to Santa to their local Macy’s store, or visit macys.com/believe to create and send a letter to Santa online. For every letter received now through Dec. 24, Macy’s will donate $1, up to $1 million, to Make-A-Wish. For National Believe Day, Macy’s is offering a double donation – for every letter received in-store and online on Friday, Dec. 12 only, Macy’s will donate an additional $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to an extra $1 million, above the existing $1 million campaign goal.

In addition to Jaelon’s wish in Fayetteville, Macy’s will help Make-A-Wish grant more than 50 special wishes across the country to create a day of “Wishes Across America” for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
