Every festive season, children write to Santa in the hope that he’ll visit on Christmas Eve with a sackful of presents and Rudolph in tow. Imagine their surprise if they were to receive a reply from the man himself – the perfect gift to help keep the magic of Christmas alive.
For a suggested donation of just £5 to the NSPCC, a child will receive a fun, colourful and personalised Letter from Santa, with a festive story tailored to their age. You’ll be able to choose from seven different beautifully illustrated styles, making them the ideal gift for families with more than one child as each can receive a truly unique letter. Santa has even written a special poem to celebrate Baby’s First Christmas – a keepsake to treasure for years to come.
Each letter can be personalised with the child’s name, age, gender, best friend or family member’s name, favourite activity and achievements, as well as providing options to select a final ‘PS’ thought when you request your letter online. In addition to these personalisation options, this year, you’ll also be able to choose whether the letter is signed ‘Santa’ or ‘Father Christmas’. The letters arrive via ‘Rudolph mail’ to make the experience truly unforgettable.
Director of the NSPCC’s ChildLine service, Peter Liver, said: “Christmas is a magical time of year for most children, but sadly there are some for whom it can be an incredibly difficult and lonely time. By requesting a Letter from Santa, you could bring a smile to a child’s face this Christmas and help us be there for vulnerable children across the UK, providing someone for them to turn to when they need advice and support, this Christmas and beyond.”
And NSPCC supporter, radio DJ and mother of three, Sara Cox, said: “The NSPCC’s personalised Letter from Santa is a fantastic way to keep the magic of Christmas alive with your loved ones, whilst supporting a good cause at the same time! You could make their Christmas extra special, whilst helping the NSPCC to be there for children who need them this Christmas and beyond through incredible services such as ChildLine.”
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 us 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.
The reindeer mailroom is open until 17 December 2013, and all those who request a Letter from Santa this year will be entered into a draw to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Lapland for a family of four.
