Macy’s red star has been a symbol of fun fashions, home goods and customer service since 1851. Make-A-Wish’s® blue star has been a beacon of hope and joy for kids battling life-threatening conditions since 1980.

Together our two stars have aligned to shine even brighter for children and families within our community, especially during this most wonderful time of year.

For the past 10 years, Macy’s annual Believe campaign is just one of the ways this amazing retailer helps Make-A-Wish chapters across America make dreams come true for deserving children. Every year, Macy’s encourages kid and adult believers alike to write letters to Santa Claus and drop them off in special red letterboxes at their stores. For every letter written, Macy’s donates $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million! Believers can also create a unique letter online! Either way, St. Nick himself is guaranteed to get these very important notes (thanks to our special volunteers) and do his part to help move our mission forward faster than Rudolph can blaze through a snowstorm.


But that’s not all! Macy’s has also declared every December 8 as National Believe Day. On this day, they double their $1 donation per letter to grant Make-A-Wish with up to an additional $1 million! This past National Believe Day was extra special for everyone here at Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada because we were able to celebrate wish kid Jaden as he received a VIP shopping experience at our local Macy’s inside the Fashion Show Mall!


We are so grateful for our partnership with Macy’s, and know they have a permanent spot on Santa’s Nice List.

PS: Santa’s waiting to hear from you! If you need some inspiration, check out these letters that Santa’s elves shared with us:
