Please help Santa’s Hide-away Hollow win a truck from on July 11th as part of Toyota’s hundred cars for good campaign. This a charity near and dear to my own heart. Santa’s Hide-a-way Hollow ensures terminally ill kids across the US get a chance to have once last Christmas. My father and his firetruck friends take turns playing “the north pole fire department” and taking sick kids for rides in their trucks. My sisters and friends have played the part of elves. My uncle, who lives in a facility for adults with mental retardation, relies on the Hollow to make sure he sees Santa each year. In addition to helping critically ill kids, Santa also visits children and adults with physical and mental disabilities who may not get the chance to see him otherwise. This charity has given so much to sick and disabled across the country, but it also has given the people of my small town to meet and build relationships in the service of others. People do as much as they can to help Santa’s Hollow, but even with all the local support sometimes things still remain out of reach. Winning this car would mean a lot to them. Please, if you can, take some time on Sunday and vote. A note from Santa himself below.
Greetings from the North Pole…
It’s not very often that you get a request from Santa Claus. However, Santa’s Hide-A-Way Hollow needs your help. Toyota Motor Company has established “100 Cars for Good.” Through their efforts,they are awarding 1 new car each day to charities for 100 days. Everyday 5 new charities are listed on their facebook page. Santa’s Hide-A-Way Hollow is one of those selected charities.
On July 11th, Santa’s Hide-A-Way becomes eligible to receive a new Toyota pickup truck. Please visit the page below and vote.(You do need a Facebook account in order to vote). Please pass this on to all your friends, co-workers, and family members. A new pickup truck would be extremely useful to Santa. Lights and sirens would be added just like the old truck, which is 11 yrs old and rusting. The truck would be used to protect the children, transport our elves and the children. In the event we have to rush a child back to the hospital, the truck would help _transport the child to safety. Please remember to vote and please help us by passing this e-mail on.
If you don’t know what Santa’s Hideaway is, it is a charity that gives terminally and critically ill children a chance to experience their last Christmas, any time of the year. It is a chance to escape the pain, medication, and sadness, while giving the lasting memory of Santa Claus, his elves, reindeer, and toys. Over the last 30 years we have visited 73,000 children at hospitals, hospice, their own homes, and brought them to Santa’s Hide-A-Way Hollow.
Thank you and Merry Christmas,
