On this very special "bonus" episode of Village Media's 12 Days of Christmas Random Acts of Kindness program, we surprise 30 local children with their entire wish list to Santa. A group of families were selected from the community for the surprise, and asked to have their children write a letter to Santa, as entry to a special dinner. Unbeknownst to them, the letters were delivered to the Village Media team, and our elves were quickly put to work gathering each gift on the list. An anonymous sponsor made sure we were able to check off all of the items hoped for by the local children, who were shocked when Santa himself showed up to give them their presents.
A very big thank you to our anonymous sponsor, who provided the gifts for dozens of children including an additional gift for each family of a $100 grocery gift card. Thank you as well to Northern Grand Gardens for providing the venue for our surprise, Mio's Furniture for providing us with Santa's chair, Domino's Pizza for providing dinner for the families, Case's Music for providing music for the event and all of the volunteers for setting up Santa's Village.
