Looking for Santas to ADOPT Families (St.Louis)
If your here to help a family or a child a need some more information just send me a message and I'll walk you through it. You select the family you want to help. You then contact them and give the gifts to them directly. I will ask you what size family works best for you and send you a 1 application at a time you can look over and choose from. You can deliver you gifts Just like Santa
What is our goal? For all the families who need assistance to recieve at least 3 small gifts for each child under the tree. If families need help with holiday meals we also hope to achieve this through adoptions.
So do you think you have what it takes to be santa this year? I think we all have it in us! It's very easy in fact! All we ask is that each item be new unless you've discussed that with the family. Also, at least one of the items be a toy. Would you like to be the reason a child's face lights up when they see a present under the Christmas tree? I'm sure you remember that feeling. Let's work together to make it happen!
This is a private program we are not a non profit and we are not doing this through our church. A group of friends, family and people from my church started doing this a few years ago on our own. It makes the experience of helping others more personal. Some may prefer to donate gifts to an organization or drop a toy in the box but this gives you the opportunity to be a part of your adopted families Christmas by talking to your family and choosing gifts for them and delivering to them. I also want to note that items on their wishlists are ONLY wishes and are to give you an idea of their interests. Please do not feel obligated to purchace those specifc items. Something is better than nothing and all the families are aware of that. Also note that gifts are intended for the children and you should feel no need to buy for the entire family. We only help those who need help find those who can help thats it!
Once you accept a family you will contact them and begin your process of being Santa! You do your shopping arrange you delivery and communicate with your family. You can choose to provide them with Christmas dinner you can choose to wrap the gifts or have them wrap them. You can request pictures sent of Christmas morning and sent to you by mail. What ever you feel comfortable with and will make this experience as special for you as it is for them.
PLEASE REMEMBER once you agree to a family please follow through. We have had our share of disapearing Santas this year and time is running out. We understand things happen but please ensure good comunication through this process as we are trying to get everyones wishes furfilled by December 23rd
To families looking for assistance please send me and email with a brief summry for need. How many are in your family and what area you live in.
