Transcript for Macy's Believe Campaign Brings Joy in 2015
All season long we've been celebrating macy's's believe campaign representing to bring joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions and donates $1 to make-a-wish for every letter dropped or or submitted online. This morning our Christmas eve grand finale so let's take a look back at everything they've accomplished. 'Tis the season to believe and when it comes to believing, 17-year-old Taylor hay is an expert. Eight years ago at the age of 9 she was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. There were several types I was hospitalized for five weeks straight and had allergic reactions and it was tough. Reporter: As difficult as it was, it cemented in her a deep sense of faith. Having belief and having faith is so important and just to believe that everything is going to get better. Reporter: It was only appropriate then when Taylor, an aspiring child actress was given a chance to have a wish granted she wished to voice a role in the annual holiday special "Yes, Virginia" and the importance of believing in Santa Claus. Where have you been? We went to see Santa. Reporter: She voiced the character Taylor named after and made to look just like her. She's so much fun. She's so bubbly and energetic. He brought me a dollhouse. I got a bow and arrow. It was a blast to be able to voice her. For Taylor and her mother, the making of "Yes, Virginia" was just what the doctor ordered. Just seeing her come to life meant everything to her which, of course, meant everything to me to see my daughter doing what she loved to do. Today, Taylor's cancer-free, ray full time college student and proof positive in the importance of believing. I wouldn't change my wish for the world. Not only did I get an amazing wish, I'm actually able to give back through the wish. One of my mottos especially going through cancer is that I have to believe that everything is going to get better and, you know what, it did. And there he is, the man himself but we are joined by Martine Reardon, chief marketing officer of Macy's and John Crowley, board chair of make-a-wish America and you're holding a very large check, all of your hard work has culminated in how much money. $2 million. I am so proud to say. Congratulations. $2 million to the make-a-wish foundation. Macy's believe campaign, the best campaign that I believe Macy's does to help the make-a-wish foundation for all of those children with life-threatening diseases to make their wishes come true. I want to ask, what does this mean to make-a-wish? 2 million must go a long way. The generosity of Macy's, Martine is remarkable. We are going to be able to provide wishes for over 200 children with this gift and, you know, I'm honored to be the national chairman of make a wish but I'm also the wish dad of two very special children, Megan and Patrick so we know as a family the impact that a wish can have not just on the children but on the families themselves so T be able to provide that, a couple of hundred times is really remarkable and special and thank you so much, Macy's and Martine. For making this happen. You know firsthand we just saw it in the piece the impact it makes for them fighting for their lives. So generous of Macy's to match and so generous of folks who decided to participate. We really want to thank our customers, it's our customers and employees who really help make this happen to raise $2 million, 1 million in one day on national believe day while we were granting 50 wishes simultaneously across the country. Macy's loves the make-a-wish foundation. This is one of the greatest assets that Macy's has in their DNA which is to really give back to all our communities across the country so I thank "Gma" for helping us do this. You know, I am a board member of the make-a-wish foundation so near and dear to my heart and John and I work hard to make sure we can grant these wishes. We've been talking about food and shopping but this is the meaning of Christmas. This is what it's all about. The ability to share the power of the wish which is just great so merry Christmas. A simple statement. Santa, what would you like to say to our viewers. It's the most wonderful time of the year and happy Christmas to all and to all a good morning. Yeah! Congratulations to Martine, to John, the entire team at Macy's and make-a-wish, learn more about the Macy's believe
