Bee Buzz: The BELIEVE Campaign & MORE...

From now until December 24th, Macy's stores will be collecting letters to Santa at all locations across the United States in the annual Believe Campaign. For each letter collected, Macy's will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a donation that has reached well over a million in years past. It's one of the simplest ways to donate a few minutes of your time, the use of a pen and paper, and make the world of a difference in the life of a child who needs some sunshine in their darkest days.

Many of our little bees have enjoyed special trips with their families, courtesy of Make-A-Wish Foundation or various other wish granting organizations. Sadly, acceptance of children with hydranencephaly through Make-A-Wish seems to be hit or miss, some have been granted while others were denied or forced to make a new wish...
