It’s also when we generate excitement to double our donation to Make-A-Wish – meaning that Macy’s will donate $2 for every letter written, up to an additional $1 million, that day alone. On National Believe Day, we help to grant 25 special Wishes AcrossAmerica in 25 cities.

Macy’s has donated more than $112 million to Make-A-Wish since 2003, including more than $17 million through its annual Believe campaign. These donations have helped grant more than 13,000 wishes, impacting millions of lives and communities.

To generate even more excitement in stores on National Believe Day and as part of Macy’s 12 Days of Friends and Family activities, kids will be able to create winter works of art featuring Sunny the Snowpal at coloring stations located next to the Believeletterboxes and snap a photo at the Macy’s selfie wall.

Additionally, as an extra special treat for National Believe Day this year, the one and only Santa will be taking over Macy’s Twitter @macys to spread the message of love and generosity! Tweet with Mr. Claus and join in the fun on Dec. 7 using #macysbelieve. You can also check out Macy’s Instagram stories (@macys) to follow the excitement of National Believe Day including Wishes AcrossAmerica, letter writing, double donations, and more.

Macy’s has also teamed up with Giphy to create one-of-a-kind Macy’s Santa GIFs for fans to use across all social media platforms. These custom jolly GIFs allow everyone to continue spreading Christmas wonder all season long and can be found by simply searching “Santa” wherever gifts are used across Facebook, Instagram Stories, Twitter, Messenger, and more.

The Believe campaign was inspired by the story of an 8-year-old girl, Virginia Hanlon, who wrote a letter to the New York Sun newspaper in 1897. Virginia asked the paper’s editor, Francis P. Church if there really was a Santa Claus. “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus,” Church replied. “He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist.” This iconic response illustrates the spirit of the Believe campaign, as well as the climactic National Believe Day.

Our program with Clothes4Souls is one that our customers and employees look forward to every fall season,” said Holly Thomas, Macy’s group vice president of Cause Marketing. “With 130,000 new coats donated to date, we’ve seen incredible impact in our local communities. It’s an honor to partner with Clothes4Souls to once again bring brand new coats to people in need, and we hope to be able to deliver another 35,000 coats this year.macyslogo

It’s such a privilege to be working with Macy’s for the fourth year in a row,” said Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls President and CEO. “The fact that we have been able to put 130,000 coats into the hands of people who need them most is extraordinary. A new coat can help provide much needed warmth during the harsh winter months and can bridge the economic gap for thousands across America. Macy’s and its customers understand the power they have to make a difference and we couldn’t be happier to be a partner in this work.”

Coats donated through the program average in retail price from $40 to $100 and distribution will take place in cities across America, beginning in November. To view this year’s outerwear assortment to participate in “Buy 1 & We’ll Donate 1,” visit macys.com.

Neiman Marcus Presents The 90th Edition Of Its Iconic Christmas Book

 

Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gifts Include a Walk-On Role in the Broadway Musical Waitress

Exclusive Grammy Awards Experience, Private Quarterback Camp with Joe Montana and His and Hers Neiman Marcus Island Cars Featuring Lilly Pulitzer

 

The 2016 Christmas Book was unveiled today by luxury omni-channel retailer Neiman Marcus in Dallas. The 90th edition of this legendary book continues Neiman Marcus’ unmatched tradition of offering a selection of spectacular and unique holiday gifts sure to make even the wildest of dreams come true.neiman-marcus Logo

The arrival of the Christmas Book is considered by many to mark the official start of the holiday shopping season. This year’s edition carries on the Neiman Marcus tradition of presenting a refined selection of items across a broad range of categories for everyone on your holiday shopping list. With a new collection of fantasy gifts certain to satisfy even the most indulgent appetites, the Christmas Book features exceptional and distinctive gifts and experiences, including A Week at Three English Estates Experience, Slumber Party at the Neiman Marcus Flagship and Cobalt Valkyrie-X Private Plane in rose gold. This year’s featured car is an INFINITI Q60 Neiman Marcus Limited Edition. The “His & Hers” fantasy gift comes to life as the Neiman Marcus Island Cars Featuring Lilly Pulitzer.neiman-marcus-christmas-book-cover-2016

We are thrilled to present the 2016 fantasy gifts. Our team has scoured and vetted hundreds of one-of-a-kind items resulting in this highly curated collection of 12 items and experiences,” said Jim Gold, President and Chief Merchandising Officer of Neiman Marcus. “It is our goal to bring dreams to life!

First published in 1926 as a 16-page booklet, the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book was initially intended as a Christmas card to the store’s best customers. Through the years, the book has maintained its personal touch while evolving into a legendary source for alluring and mystical gifts.

Each year, the Christmas Book features specially commissioned artwork and the covers are as anticipated as the contents. “With the goal of bringing a fashion component to the cover of the Christmas Book, we combined custom artwork by Maija Louekari with the beautiful face of Lindsey Wixson to create a final image photographed by Walter Chin. And, to add that bit of fantasy that Neiman Marcus is famous for, the lenticular printing animates Lindsey winking,” said Georgia Christensen, Vice President, Brand Creative Director of Neiman Marcus. This year represents only the second time a unique element has been used to animate the cover. In 1999, a Christmas tree glistened with butterflies thanks to a lenticular onset.

As in previous years, Neiman Marcus will donate a portion of the proceeds from the majority of fantasy gifts to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation which brings enriching art experiences to youth in communities nationwide. Donations will be made to the GRAMMY Foundation with the purchase of the Exclusive GRAMMY Awards Experience and to Akola Project with the purchase of the Optimist Akola Bracelet.

The Love to Give Collection, also featured in the 2016 Christmas Book, includes over 40 perfectly priced items for gift giving. Each Neiman Marcus store gives ten percent of the proceeds to benefit youth arts education in Neiman Marcus communities across the country.
