For each letter, Macy's will donate $1 to the Make-a-Wish foundation. You do not have to donate money, just a little time for a letter. Have your kids write a letter. Stamp the letter, drop it off at Macy's and Macy's will take all those letters to the post office for Santa.
Write on your own or use Macy's online tool.
If you do not have time to stop by Macy's or do not have one near you, just send them to us and we will be happy take them to Macy's. Carter, Luke and Brayden would love to drop them off at Santa's mailbox.
Make-a-Wish granted our wish, please help others have their wishes come true too. Just write a letter to Santa. For more information, you can check out Macy's Believe (has lots of fun Christmas activities on the site) or Make-a-Wish.
If you would like to send your the letters for us to drop off, please email me (efcarrie at aol dot com) for our address.
Give a Gift for a child in the hospital.
The boys and I are also collecting gifts for the INOVA Fairfax Children's Hospital
We know too well, the time and money that is involved in any hospital stay. Inova Fairfax is where many of the chronically or critically ill children of Northern Virginia are taken for medical care. Many families struggle with this during the holiday season. Staying at the hospital for any length of time is exhausting on the family and the wallet. We want to gather as many gifts as we can so that the families staying at the hospital over Christmas time have an opportunity for gifts. Over the next three weeks the boys and I will be collecting toys to take to the hospital. Toys for any age, books, coloring books or even just a box of crayons. Big or small, it is all great for the families!
You can drop them off at our house, meet up or we would be happy to come by to pick them up!
