LIHUE — Letters to Santa are helping children’s holiday wishes come true.

This year, Macy’s invites “believers” of all ages to bring their letters to Santa to the Macy’s store at Kukui Grove Center. For every letter received now through Dec. 24, the company will donate $1, and up to $1 million total, to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses through Make-A-Wish Hawaii.

For National Believe Day on Friday, Macy’s doubled donations for every letter received. The department store donated an additional $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to an extra $1 million above the existing $1 million campaign goal.

Since the launch of Believe in 2008, Macy’s has donated more than $15 million to Make-A-Wish through this annual campaign, and helped grant thousands of wishes.

The impact of wish fulfillment is widespread, increasing hope and happiness for wish kids, their families, volunteers, supporters, medical professionals and entire communities.

Letters to Santa can be delivered to Macy’s on Oahu, Maui and the Big Island as well.
