This is the letter 10-year-old Susana wrote to Santa Claus this week. She lives in Manhattan with her family and is part of New York Cares Winter Wishes, which seeks to give gifts to thousands of families this holiday. Kids like her would otherwise receive nothing this season.

In addition to our ongoing toy drive with Toys for Tots, “Metro Magic,” Metro also partnered with New York Cares to help them complete this goal.

You can buy a gift — for either Toys for Tots or New York Cares — by clicking on the “Metro Magic” logo in the top left corner. You will be redirected to, where you can purchase a gift securely. All gifts will be mailed to the Metro offices, where they will be distributed. Please mark “New York Cares” if that’s where you’d like your gift to go.


Metro also wants to reward our readers who are helping out. If you bought a “Metro Magic” gift, send us an e-mail with a link of proof of purchase to You can receive prizes ranging from a team-autographed Jets football to Radio City’s Christmas Spectacular tickets.
