Getting Santa back on his sleigh

My Dad, who a lot of you know as Santa, had a heart attack recently. He is beginning his road to recovery and needs some additional assistance. The road to recovery will be long and expensive (right now he is slated to be out of work for at least 8 weeks).

My Dad does a lot for other people whether it is taking a moment to make a child smile a the sight of his rosy cheeks and Santa beard, or being an active participant in the Patriot Guard Riders, all while not expecting anything in return. He doesn't ask for much help often, so I am asking for him. 

Funds will go towards his medical bills, recovery costs, and some additional help around the house to tackle some important tasks before winter comes. Santa needs his roof fixed as well, so he can get better in time to get the toy shop up and running. Some various maintenace tasks around the house he was going to perform himself, but these will also need some assistance to complete given his current situation. Thanks so much for your support to help my Dad, our family appreciates it more than you could know.
