Flash Mob Performs in Front of Macy's in Johnson City

Posted:
70 Binghamton University students found a creative way to bring attention to the Make-A-Wish Foundation Friday at the mall.

The mission of the Make-A-Wish Foundation is to grant wishes to children with life threatening conditions under the age of 18. This evening, BU students brought 22 thousand letters to Macy's Make-A-Wish drop box. Macy's teamed up with the students, where for every letter Macy's would donate two dollars. The student's decided a flash mob would be a great way to celebrate their achievement and bring a little holiday cheer to those who were around.

"We're very lucky to have b-line help us with the flash mob and writting our dance for us today. We really did it because it was a fun way to get peoples attention and look and see whats going on. We thought it was a fun suprise." said BU student Sean Lynch.
Macy's manager said, "one of Macy's core values is giving back and we think it's awesome that these students have the same philosophy as us and that it's important to them."

All together they raised $45,000.
