WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

In this season of giving, those participating in National Believe Day are looking to spread holiday spirit by giving hope to children who are fighting for their lives.

Macy's invited believers of all ages to write a letter to Santa to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

On Friday only, for every letter written, Macy's said it will double the normal $1 donation to Make-A-Wish up to $1 million.

Chocolate Chip cookies from Maneeley's will also be available to writers, while supplies last.

Eyewitness News's own Scot Haney and Nicole Nalepa were there looking to inspire some of those pens and pencils. 

Make-A-Wish teamed up with the stores at the Westfarms Mall to grant a holiday wish for a Manchester teen who is fighting Leukemia.

High school freshman George James definitely deserved the star treatment he received on Friday.

He took a limo to the mall, and was able to go on a shopping spree, and even helped others win prizes.

"It's a wonderful feeling to see someone who is going through hard times come in and forget about their problems. They are enduring and leave with a smile," said Macy's Westfarms Manager Chris Glass.
