Season of Wishes

Join us this holiday season as we celebrate our Season of Wishes and help make wishes come true! Explore some of the ways you can get involved this year in our effort to raise funds, awareness and outreach throughout the Connecticut community and turn children's wishes into realities.

Macy’s Believe Campaign

Believers of all ages are asked to be a part of the holiday magic by writing a letter to Santa and drop it off at the special Santa Mail letterbox at any Macy’s store by Dec. 24th. Macy’s will donate $1 for each letter, up to $1 million, to make wishes come true! Visit or contact Nicole Miles at to learn more.

Amarante's Winter Wonderland

With over 120,000 lights in full color, Amarante's is the perfect way to kick off your holiday season while also making wishes come true for kids battling life-threatening medical conditions. For more information on Amarante's Winter Wonderland, contact 860.617.6121 or nznenagrjvagrejbaqreynaq@tznvy.pbz.

Plum Orchard Light Show

While you’re out and about this holiday season, swing by the Plum Orchard Light Show at 140 Plum Orchard Road in Southington, CT!  Andrew Gallagher puts up an amazing light display set to music for people of all ages to enjoy.  Donations will be collected for Make-A-Wish from now until the end of the holiday season.  For more information, click here.

Share your Ears 

#ShareYourEars is back! Joining the campaign is easy: just snap a pic of you or someone else wearing Mickey Mouse Ears (or a creative interpretation) and share it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #ShareYourEars through November 17th. Each share equals a $5 donation to Make-A-Wish America, up to $1M!
