Caleb Taylor is encouraging his friends and neighbors to participate in the fifth year of Macy’s Believe Holiday Campaign benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Alabama office.
Instead of sticking his letter to Santa in the mailbox outside of his home in Inverness, five-year-old Caleb Taylor will be hand delivering it to Macy’s at Colonial Brookwood Village.
Caleb is encouraging his friends and neighbors to participate in the fifth year of Macy’s Believe Holiday Campaign benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Alabama office.
“No one likes to be sick,” said Taylor. “I want to help make wishes come true for kids who want to do something special.”
Macy’s invites kids all across the country to drop off a letter for Santa at a local Macy’s Santa Mail letterbox. For each and every stamped letter dropped off through Christmas Eve, Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million, to help grant wishes for children who have life-threatening diseases.
“This year marks a milestone as we celebrate the fifth anniversary of our popular Believe campaign,” said Pam Jones, Chief Executive Officer of Make-A-Wish’s Alabama Office. “The money raised will go specifically to grant wishes of children here in Alabama.”
Also as a part of the campaign, Birmingham has been chosen as one of the 26 cities where Macy’s Santa will make a stop. Both adults and children are invited to visit the Macy’s location at Colonial Brookwood Village at 6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 17 to meet Santa and deliver their holiday wish list to him in person.
Make-A-Wish has granted wishes for children with life-threatening conditions since 1980, making over 200,000 wishes become a reality, from meeting a celebrity role model, to becoming a rock star for a day, starring in a Broadway play, swimming with dolphins, visiting Disneyland and more.
Want to help? Just bring a stamped Santa wish letter to the Colonial Brookwood Mall Macy’s location, addressed to Santa at the North Pole, and drop it into the Macy’s Santa Mail Letterbox.
