You Can ‘Adopt Letters’ To Santa From Low-Income Children

Every year, legions of children write their letters to Santa Claus, so that they can let him know more about what they want. This is a common practice, for sure. This year, those who wish to help needy children receive everything on their wish lists will have the chance to make their dreams come to fruition. This year, they launched a site called USPS Operation Santa making the letters available online nationally for the first time. According to the website, “you can read letters from Santa’s mailroom and answer the ones he can’t.”

While the letters to Santa have been able to be read for over 100 years now, this is the first time that a website has been created for this specific purpose. This allows the reader to check out the letters from Santa’s own mailroom. Santa might be a jolly fellow but he does not always have time to read each and every letter that he receives.

In a perfect world, every child would have the chance to receive everything on their wish list. Unfortunately, some children are simply not that fortunate. The children who have written these letters do not always have the chance to receive the gifts that they have asked for. This breaks our hearts. Who wouldn’t want to step up to the plate to assist these kids? Just remember, your gift needs to be mailed out by Dec. 20.

We love this idea and we hope that you share it with your closest friends and loved ones. All you need to do is head to the website, pick out the letter that speaks to you personally and follow the instructions that are provided. You should not need any added incentive but these gifts are considered to be tax-deductible…just saying.

Be sure to choose the gifts that are most doable for you and yours. There is no pressure when it comes to providing the best holiday gifts. It is the thought that counts, right? If you would like to add your little one to this list, take a moment to visit the site to find out more.
