Some of you who are my close friends already know about this. But to those that don't... I want to tell you!
For the last ten years or so just after Thanksgiving I get the idea to adopt a family with less for Christmas -- buy them presents, a tree, a turkey... But time does this trippy thing around this time of year where somehow you wake up one day and bam -- it's Christmas.
Well I got the idea this year right on schedule. Only this year I had this additional yearning. I've been writing a ghost story set in the aftermath of Katrina, and in order to be true to that world, I have immersed myself in, reading every possible piece of anything I could get my hands on. And what I have encountered... it breaks my heart.
So efficient me combined my two impinging passions. I connected with Margaret Saizan, the author of this blog and I've started a web page to connect families in need with the sweet souls willing to give them a little piece of magic. It really doesn't take much to do that. Magic is born in good will, presents are just the manifestation of that.
Anyway... I just finished the web design yesterday, which was a trip, because I'm really only an eyelash away from being considered computer illiterate. Anyway, I hope the letters will come pouring in.
Here's the address -- www.PostSanta.com Obviously it's a content driven site, so until the letters are there it's not really much to look at. But I'm very proud of it, so I thought I'd share.
Once I get some letters, I'll post a bulletin that I hope will get passed on from my friends to your friends to their friends... I plan to adopt at least one family, so anyone that wants to do that with me, let me know!
