Christmas should be a magical time for a child and Santa arriving delivering presents on Christmas is one of the ways. Here we set out Mince Pies, Carrots and a small glass of sherry for Santa to enjoy when he arrives, his elves also bring a special Christmas Eve gift including some new PJ’s especially for the kids to wear for Santa.
What ever you do as parents to add to that magic there is always a possibility that the children’s minds work better and quicker than ours. To help out the NSPCC have teamed up with Santa to send personalised letters to your child in the UK or elsewhere in the world for a suggested donation of £5.
When you request a letter from Santa there are some many options to personalise the letters – including a special poem that Santa has written for Baby’s First Christmas.
If your child is older then you can have the letter personalised, choosing the style of the letter there are different styles for various age ranges that in the text answer the questions that some of the children may have – like “What does Santa do on Christmas Day” once your theme is chosen you then customise with your child’s name or those of multiple children if you would like. Choosing for a single child you add in their age at Christmas, whether they are a boy or girl as well as achievements in the past year. Those that prefer to use the term Father Christmas instead of Santa get the option to sign the letter from him instead.
NSPCC runs the all important Childline in the UK and the money raised from the Letters from Santa helps to keep this valuable service going throughout the year. Every £5 raised by Letter from Santa could help ChildLine be there whenever a child seeks help either online or by phone. Every £12 raised could help trained ChildLine Schools Service volunteers talk to one primary school child about abuse, giving them the confidence to talk and showing them who’s ready to listen. And every £50 raised could help an NSPCC practitioner deliver two hours of telephone support to anyone with concerns about a child.
Santa’s Mailroom is now open all the way through to the 15th Decemeber – although if you are sending abroad best to get those messages in sooner – what’s more everyone who requests a letter from Santa this year will be entered in a draw to win a family (4 people) holiday at Centre Parcs.
You can request your letter from santa either at at www.nspcc.org.uk/santa or by calling 0845 839 9304.
