Scott L. from the US has a thing with Santa Claus and also with helping kids. He is kick starting a campaign with a simple goal: to have a portion of all sales using Santa Claus go towards helping sick kids.  Currently, he is riding around this island on a bike dressed like Santa Claus (real beard), and he plans on doing over 1,000 miles.  “I do feel my work could benefit the people of Aruba, mostly because this is where I discovered the true meaning of Santa.  If the people of Aruba could have this conversation about a better way to use the image of Santa, it might force other countries to do the same.” For years he wanted to share his work with people on the island.The first thing he did when Scott got home from Aruba in December 2007 was writing down his Aruba experiences and how that helped changing the way he saw Santa. Stay tuned for some more stories about Santa Scott.

Happy HO HO HOlidays,
