Letters to Santa Benefit Make-a-Wish Foundation

This entry is part 9 of 12 in the series 12 Weeks of Giving

Random Acts of Kindness, 12 Weeks of Christmas, 12 Weeks of Giving, Non-Profit, Charity

For Week 9 of 12 Weeks of Giving the kids wrote letters to Santa and we dropped them off at Macy’s to help benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation.  For every letter that is dropped in Santa’s mailbox located in Macy’s stores Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-a-Wish up to $1 million.  December 10th is the National Believe Day where Macy’s will donate an additional $1 per letter above and beyond the original $1 million agreed upon.

Noah's Santa letter

{Noah’s letter to Santa}

Says: Santa, I want Toy Story 3. I help Mommy. Noah. I love u.

The cutest thing about his letter besides the fact it’s the first letter he has ever written is the fact he came up with the wording all by himself.  I just helped him with spelling.  So adorable.  This was one memory I’ll always cherish.

Gabby's letter to Santa{Gabby’s letter to Santa}

Says: Dear Santa, I was good at school all year. I want a puppy and a pony named penny. I want a pink DSi for all my games. Love, Gabby

I’m so proud of Gabby.  She has came a long way since her Hemispherectomy surgery.  She was actually able to spell most of the words in her letter without my help.  That’s a huge accomplishment considering she had to learn to read again and even relearn some of her letters after surgery.  She really enjoyed writing this letter to Santa and I enjoyed every minute spent as a family.

Did you children write letters to Santa this year? There’s still time left to drop them off at Macy’s to help benefit Make-a-Wish.  Who did you bless this week? Tell me how you are giving back during this Holiday season.
