It’s been an awfully long time since I communicated with Mr. Claus via letter or lap visit (get your minds out of the gutter!), but Macy’s might just change all that this year. The retail giant has teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation for its annual holiday “Believe” campaign to encourage folks of all ages to write a letter to Santa and help make children’s wishes come true.
For every stamped letter Macy’s receives in its “Santa Mailbox,” it will donate $1 (up to $1 million) to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. So far the retailer has received more than 544,000 letters to Old St. Nick, enough to grant a whole lot of wishes.

Make sure to address it to The North Pole, add a stamp and click here to find a special Santa mailbox in your area. Macy's will make sure each and every letter makes it to Santa before Christmas.
