Just Believe

The Make-a-Wish foundation is an amazing organization that grants wishes to kids battling cancer and other serious illnesses. The most popular wish is a trip to Disneyland or Disneyworld! The Make-a-Wish people go above and beyond the call of duty to make even the wildest of wishes come true. Last year, a young Seattle boy made a wish to be a superhero and the Make-a-Wish foundation orchestrated an entire city to make his wish come true – click on the link to see the story, caution: it will make you melt.

Every year Macys hosts a mailbox to Santa for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. For every letter to Santa that gets placed in a Macys Santa Mailbox they donate $1 to the Make-a-Wish foundation, up to $1,000,000!!!! As you can probably tell, making wishes come true is sometimes costly, and the Make-a-Wish foundation needs that $1,000,000!

So, I’m rallying troops to get your buts to Macys and bring a letter to Santa! I walk by Macys nearly every day, if you e-mail me a letter to Santa (mrs{dot}Ronnebeck@live{dot}com), or write a comment on this post to Santa, I will print it off and take it down to Macys to get that $1 donated to the Make-a-Wish foundation.

Let’s make these kids’ wishes come true!!!!

I have provided a couple samples below from Gracie & Aquaman and myself, you know, to get those creative juices flowing.

Dear Santa Clause,
I have not been a very good cat, although I have tried; but let me justify my behavior by saying that I would be a perfect kitty if my owners would quit picking me up and loving on me, and taking away my food dish for half of the day.
All I want for Christmas is some peace and quiet, and a full food dish that stays on the floor for 24 hours.

Dear Santa Clause,
I have been a good boy, because I love my owners.
All I want for Christmas is a lap with a fleece blanket to snuggle on, and a rawhide.
I would also love it if Mom and Dad would let me chase the cat so I don’t have to do it when they’re not looking; see what you can do about that one.
Aquaman Ronnebeck

Dear Santa,
I’ve been a good girl this year and all I really want for Christmas is a cure for Cancer, is that too much of me to ask? Oh yeah, and World Peace; stop me when you think I’m just being greedy.
Love, Abby

So, let’s start off this Christmas season right, and get those letters to Santa going!!
Or Comment!

Love, Abby
