We are /r/SantasLittleHelpers and we are a Christmas based assistance sub that helps provide families struggling during the holidays with Christmas gifts for their kids. Users can post a request with a link to their amazon wishlist and include how many children they have, other users who wish to play Santa will stop by and can read your story and help out by buying a gift or two from your wishlist.
Last year we helped provide over $60,000 worth of gifts to over 1000 families in need all over the US and Canada. Again this year we plan to have lots of offers, contests and more.
If you don't need help but would like to help by buying a gift or two for a family in need or even just sending some Christmas cards, or if you would like to offer words of encouragement please stop by and visit us. We will open around Thanksgiving and usually get quite busy soon after, we will also have some other fun things like contests, recipes, etc.
We've set up this GoFundMe account as a way to help offset cost for shipping, to provide help to those families that have not received a gift, and to help out wherever possible with the sub. All fund used will updated here, so you can follow along with how your funds are being used (We strive to open and transparent)
If you have any questions feel free to ask!
