It’s almost time to write those Santa letters.
And this year, your kids could be tearing open a handwritten reply from the big man himself.
The Hope Foundation has launched a special Christmas service designed to help parents create some magical festive moments while supporting the charity’s work with the street and slum communities in India.
“The North Pole are very familiar with HOPE’s work with the street and slum children and their communities in Kolkata.” said a Hope spokesperson.
“HOPE was delighted when Santa asked them to help deliver all his handwritten replies to the children of Ireland.”
Here’s how it works: Enter all your child’s information, their favourite activities, best friend, achievements and any other important details into the Santa Letter portal here.
Your letter will be posted to your home in a Christmas envelope complete with Santa’s special stamp. The cost is €10 for one letter, €15 for two letters and €20 for a personalised family one. Each letter will include a personalised certificate to confirm that your child is on Santa’s “nice” list.
Founded by Cork native Maureen Forrest, HOPE has reached out and supported up to 2.8 million people living in dire poverty since 1999.
“2020 was meant to be a year to celebrate 21 years of extraordinary work, instead it has turned into a nightmare for the HOPE family both in Ireland and in Kolkata, by purchasing a personalised handwritten letter to Santa Claus from HOPE you are embracing the spirit of Christmas and helping to continue their vital work with children.” said a charity spokesperson.
