Time for our big Macy's annual believe campaign finale. They partnered with make-a-wish and so many of you out there have helped bring joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions by making some amazing wishes come true. Let's take a look. Dear Santa. Dear Santa is. 'Tis the season to believe and all of you delivered big with letters sent to the jolly man up north. For every letter Macy's received in stores and online, $1 was donated to make-a-wish helps hundreds of wishes across the nation come true. I love makeup. It's fun to experiment with. We met Megan a yub mamakeup maven and gave ginger a makeover. It looks pretty. I love it. I never miss a raider game ever in my life. And tagged along on Josiah's football fantasy. Welcome, Oakland raiders. Who became an honorary raiders captain and took the 50 yard line for a game day coin toss and watched Avery compete in her own gymnastics competition winning first place. Gives presents to all the good little children in all of you kept the ho, ho spirit alive online with #santaproject joining in the Macy's movement to make Christmas special for generations to come. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you, make-a-wish. And thank you for participating. Joining us are Macy's chairman and CEO Terry Lundgren and David Williams, make-a-wish president and CEO. We want to make an announcement now. Tell us, if you will, the big total. All right. Drum roll, please, everybody. Big total is Macy's raised $2 million for the make-a-wish foundation. There you go. There it is. $2 million. Make-a-wish. So, only possible because of all of our customers and our employees writing letters to Santa Claus in the Macy's mailbox and we matched every letter we received with a donation and came up with 2 million bucks to the make-a-wish foundation. So many of you did it. Listen to this. I mean, since 2003, $100 million raised by Macy's. Unbelievable. I'm looking at this like $100 million. Since 2003. As you look back talk to me about what it's all meant to you. First of all, it really -- I am still stuttering with the number myself, $100 million, one company, paste, one organization charity organization make-a-wish and so many grants of wishes for these kids with these serious diseases and it's been such a pleasure to actually watch these experiences take place in our stores where we introduce them and put them on to your show or have them become a makeup artist at Macy's. I've seen those stories. It's been amazing so I think the most amazing part is to see our customers and our employees respond the way that they have to this amazing program. David, I want to thank you for all you do making these dreams come true. Yes, and we couldn't do it without companies like Macy's. There's a wish granted every 21 minutes in the world and it only happens because of volunteers and great corporations like Macy's so we're just thrilled to participate. Well, the numbers are staggering. We cannot thank you enough and can't thank you enough. Congratulations to Terry and to David and Macy's and make-a-wish. Visit our website, on Yahoo! So worth it.
