The Make-a-Wish Foundation is teaming up with Macy's again for a big holiday fund-raising campaign and a local cancer survivor is hoping to get involved by collecting holiday wishes for Santa.
Make-a-Wish grants dream wishes for children fighting terminal illnesses. 10-year-old Eliana Nunley is a cancer survivor and says she'll raise at least $500 for the "Make a Wish Foundation" by collecting 500 letters to Santa for the Macy's "Believe" Project. For every letter to Santa turned in to Macy's, they will donate $1 to Make a Wish.
The letters need to be mailed by December 6th and the Nunley family will count them, box them and provide the postage, but they're asking all schools, churches and kids organizations to get involved. Ellie will be delivering her 500 letters the evening of December 6th at the Santa Maria Macy's.
If you'd like to help Nunley in her quest, email her mom Danya at: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also drop them off at Ocean View Elementary school at 1208 Linda Dr, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420
All kids (and believers of all ages) can also bring their letters to Santa to their local Macy's, and for each letter received, Macy's will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million. Macy's has donated over $6 million to Make-A-Wish over the first five years of its Believe campaign.
