For today’s newspaper we received this great pictures and wonderful words from Scott L:

“In 2007, I had the opportunity to spend three weeks in Aruba as a ‘real-bearded’ Santa Claus, and that experience had a huge impact on both my life and work.  Since that time, I have been working on trying to kick start a campaign that would help redefine the image of Santa Claus into a better tool to help sick kids.

This was from a local newspaper in my area last year, and explains more about the work I am trying to do. I would love to ask a couple of questions:

  • Could the island of Aruba benefit from a campaign that had a portion of all sales using the image of Santa go towards charity…?
  • Does it make any difference that this campaign is being started by a ‘Santa’ that got his start in Aruba?

I was just a visitor for a short time in Aruba years ago, but again, the impact it had on my life was great.  If you have any interest, I would love to explain more.

Happy HO HO Holidays”
