COLORADO SPRINGS — Rampart High School's Make-A-Wish Club dropped more than 1,000 letters to Santa Thursday at Macy's in Chapel Hills Mall in support of the Macy's Believe campaign.

Students spent the past month working to write and collect as many letters as possible from fellow students to help raise money for Make-A-Wish.

Wish kid Eden, a 9-year-old girl battling a brain tumor, was there with her mom Ann. Eden's wish to visit the Orlando theme parks was granted over the summer.

Macy's Believe letter-writing campaign aims to capture the joy and generosity of the holiday season by asking the community to join together in granting wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Customers of all ages can drop off letters to Santa in stores, or submit them online through Dec. 24.

Macy's will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish for every letter sent, up to $1 million.
