Make-A-Wish® Wyoming, Macy’s celebrate Believe Day with letter writing campaign to Santa
Casper, Wyoming – Make-A-Wish® Wyoming, Casper Macy’s, Natrona County High School and Kelly Walsh High School will host a letter writing campaign for Believe Day, a national event that encourages people to believe in the magic of the holidays and join in the spirit of giving.
For the last ten years, Macy’s stores nationwide have participated in the Believe campaign to raise funds for Make-A-Wish®. Believers of all ages are encouraged to write a letter to Santa Claus and drop it in the big red letterbox at their local Macy’s store. For each letter collected in stores and online through Christmas Eve, Macy's will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million, to help grant wishes of children who have life-threatening medical conditions.
On National Believe Day, Friday, December 8th Macy’s will double their donation to $2 for each letter collected on this day only, up to an additional $1 million. For this year’s event Casper schools can be a part of the celebration by participating in the 1st Annual 24 Days of Wishes! Beginning Friday, December 1st, help Kelly Walsh and Natrona County High School reach their goal of collecting 5,000 letters from the Casper community by bringing your holiday letters to Macy’s at the Eastridge Mall. Letters delivered to the Eastridge Mall by Friday, December 8th, National Believe Day, will be a part of the schools’ official count. Following December 8th, both schools will challenge the Casper community to match the number of letters they collected by December 24th, the final day of the campaign.
“Every time we do an event it makes things that more enjoyable for our council to know that it will be going towards a great cause to help kid’s wishes come true. The Believe event is an amazing new event we are excited to be a part of. Our council at NC is so excited to get to work with not only our rivals but also schools around our community,” said Natrona County High School Representative, Liane Dia.
