I love this time of year; snow is falling, cookies are baking in the oven, and all of my favorite Christmas movies are playing on TV.  I love all of the shopping and the crowds, and just the excitement and anxiousness that's in the air!  Speaking of shopping, one of my favorite places to shop is Macy's, for me Macy's and Christmas just go together and one of my very favorite things about Christmastime and Macy's is their "Believe" campaign!

In case you're not familiar with the "Believe" campaign let me fill you in!

We’re happy to announce that Macy’s 3rd annual Believe campaign is expanding this year!


Starting November 7th, believers of all ages were invited to drop off letters in the Santa Mail letterbox to earn a $1 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation – up to $1 MILLION.

Macy’s Facebook Fans have an exclusive chance to earn up to an additional $250K for Make-A-Wish by winning the Believe Challenge game.  Based on the cartoon special Yes, Virginia, fans are challenged to help Virginia and Ollie get their letters to Santa.  Each winner will earn another $1! If you are already on Facebook, be sure to check out www.facebook.com/macys to join the fun – and the cause.

However, there’s much more to this effort that builds on the successes and spirit of the previous years.  Visit the Believe mini-site for interactive tools to create your Santa letter.  Also coming back is the “Yes, Virginia” holiday special — but this year you can purchase the DVD and book with 10% of the proceeds also being donated to Make-A-Wish!

Macy’s National Santa Tour – For the second year in a row, Santa will embark on a whirlwind American tour, spreading joy to girls and boys cross the country following his celebratory kickoff of the holiday season in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®. Stopping in 26 new cities across the U.S. through Dec. 22, Santa’s National Tour will give children the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet the man himself. Visit www.macys.com/believe for scheduled stops and to track Santa’s latest location.

Believe Mini-Site – At www.macys.com/believe, you can find a portal to other great Believe elements including the “Believe” Activity Guide, Celebrity Santa letters, and the Santa Tour Tracker for believers for all ages who want to meet the man himself!


You have to admit, that is an awesome cause and a fun way to help raise money!  And now I have a little something to share with all of you...an awesome giveaway for one lucky MIBR reader!

One MIBR reader will receive all of the items listed below...(products provided by M80)
