Macy's Celebrates National Believe Day By Granting Wishes Across America

Victoria's wish was revealed on National Believe Day at Macy's
Every year, on National Believe Day, Macy’s and Make-A-Wish® come together to grant more than fifty children’s wishes all across America. This year, Macy's helped to reveal two wishes in Pennsylvania -- 14-year-old Rachel’s wish to attend New Year’s Eve festivities in New York City and 15-year-old Victoria’s wish for a Sweet Sixteen party.

RACHEL'S WISH REVEAL

Rachel, who has been diagnosed with a life-threatening gastrointestinal disorder, had no idea that when she was invited to be interviewed during our annual Light Up A Child's Life with WISH 99.7, her wish would be revealed during the live webcast with an impromptu New Year’s Eve countdown. After the surprise, Rachel was escorted by Macy’s employees to select a New Year’s outfit and accessories. Her and her family also received makeovers at the Clinque counter at Macy's.

VICTORIA'S WISH REVEAL

After being escorted via limousine to the Millcreek Mall Macy's in Erie, students from St. George Catholic Elementary School in Erie greeted Victoria, who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, for her special wish reveal day.  She spent the day being pampered, selecting the perfect party attire for her sweet 16th birthday party and getting a makeover.
