MAKE A WISH






Most of you know about the Make A Wish Foundation and their wonderful mission of granting wishes to children.
There's a great way that you can help them out this Holiday Season at no cost to you. While you're out shopping with your grandchildren please stop by your local MACY's store and look for the big red Believe Station Mailbox (usually it's displayed right in the main entrance).
There is a Believe Meter and a letter-writing station. Take a few minutes and have your grandkids write a letter to Santa. It'll be fun for them and for every letter sent to Santa, MACY's will donate $1 to the Make A Wish Foundation, up to $1,000,000!! It's an easy way to help out Make A Wish - so please stop by.

Hello,
Jenny from VolunteerMatch here. The holidays are a great time to get involved in your community in many different ways. Whether it be through Macy's, Make-A-Wish, or one of the over 60,000 nonprofit organizations on VolunteerMatch.org.
This year spend time with your kids and grandkids donating your time and energy to a cause that your passionate about. A love of service is a gift that lasts a lifetime.
Whether you have an hour, a day, or a week to give there is a perfect opportunity waiting for you. Also, there are currently over 2400 "Virtual Opportunities" available that enable you to get involved via your laptop or pc. For example, check out this story about In2Books and the way in which it is connecting adult mentors with students across the nation to help spread "a love of learning." http://www.volunteermatch.org/volunteers/stories/spotlight.jsp?id=30
Thanks for your support Rosie and Happy Holidays!

Jenny
