This giveaway is now over. The winner is Marilyn Wons. Congrats!
For the fourth year in a row, Macy’s is partnering with The Make-A-Wish Foundation® and collecting letters to Santa. For every letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to The Make-A-Wish Foundation®, up to $1 million. I have a cousin that has actually used The Make-A-Wish Foundation, so this is charity that we stand behind. Inspired by The New York Sun’s famous “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus” editorial from 1897, Macy’s stores across the country feature letter-writing Believe Stations and Santa Mail letterboxes for believers of all ages to write their letters to Santa. As a special treat in stores this year, believers of all ages can take their photos with the characters from the animated holiday classic, “Yes, Virginia.” Visit any Macy’s Believe Station to pose for holiday photos with Virginia and her friends – and don’t miss Macy’s celebrated Santalands to pose with Santa himself!
Using new augmented reality technology, customers with IOS and select Android smartphones can download the “Macy’s Believe-o-Magic” application that allows them to unlock the magic to see and interact with Virginia, Ollie and their friends. You can step in the frame and take a photo, which can also be uploaded into a holiday card template to share via e-mail or Facebook. You can also preview the magic at home by downloading the application and printing out the marker. When you point the “Macy’s Believe-o-Magic” camera at the marker, you’ll see an animated Virginia ice skating right in your home!
To help you get in the holiday spirit, I have arranged for one lucky reader of mine to win a a Macy’s Spode Snow Globe. All you have to do is leave me a comment below sharing your favorite Santa memory (whether Santa surprised and delighted your kids or made your dreams come true as a child)!
This giveaway will end on December 16th at 12:01 am and is for US residents. Good luck!
