At Christmas time we are filled with joy and peace as we celebrate the warmth of such a meaningful season. And to watch children beaming on Christmas morning as we celebrate a birthday, read the Christmas story and open presents. And when it comes to presents you need to have list.  That begins with writing a letter to Santa.

Today on National Believe Day sponsored by Macy's, the department store giant will double their donation to Make-A-Wish for every letter to Santa that is collected in-store or at Macy's has highlighted their holiday tradition now for 11 years and each Christmas for one day they will donate $2 for each letter up to and extra $1 million.

According to Sue Salter of Make-A-Wish South Dakota many area schools are conducting letter-writing campaigns, and will be on hand Friday for National Believe Day, to deliver their letters to Macy’s in Sioux Falls to help make wishes come true.
