DO YOU WANT to Make a Child’s Face Surprised…..Read Here to Find Out How!

santa-boySanta needs helpers this year.  Within the next few days, a Santa letter writing campaign will be announced by the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation.  People request letters, PERSONAL letters, from Santa to their child.  Perhaps Santa will mention what they want for Christmas, or the name of their pet, or even that a child is doing well while managing their diabetes.  All personal.

Well Santa needs elves to help write these letters.  Marie is the head elf and she coordinates this great campaign each year and she will explain the program.   It’s simple and you will feel so good knowing what a child’s face will look like.  What Elf Marie needs from you, is just the willingness to respond back within 24 hours with a completed letter to a child; you are given what is needed…..Elf Marie will teach you everything you need to know…’s easy….you just need to be able to get the letter done within 24 hours.  You will FEEL SO GOOD doing these letters.

If you want to help, please email me at and write in the subject line Santa’s Elf; and I will pass along to Elf Marie who will reach out to you with further instructions.
Thank you for caring.

Santa NEEDS You.

 Santa wants youWell it’s that time of year again when we once again look for Santa’s Helpers.

The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation will once again be helping Santa as he writes personalized letters to boys and girls all across the United States.

Those letters will even mention how well your child is doing, working with mom and dad managing their diabetes; or perhaps they are the brother or sister of someone with diabetes.   Perhaps your kids are getting something special for the holidays or are doing something fabulous in school—-whatever it is, Santa will write it personally to your child.

At the same time you will be helping supporting the Diabetes Research Institute, dedicated to curing type one diabetes, the DRI wants to turn out the lights forever because the cure is found. 

One of Santa’s best volunteer coordinators, Marie, has asked me to spread the word that if anyone wants to be a helper to email me. I will share your information and Marie will contact you sharing exactly how you can help Santa this year.

If you are interested, email me at  In the subject line please write Santa’s Helper.

Thank you.

Wanted: Santa’s Elves—-Don’t do Nothing

This is a pet project of mine.

Last year I ran a fund raising event that was fun and worth while.  I sent personal letters to children, from Santa Claus.

Parents would make a donation to the DRI and we would send a letter from Santa Claus; complete with stamp from the North Pole.

Kids with diabetes; kids without; siblings to kids with diabetes, parents sent me the personal information and they absolutely loved when their kids opened the letters personally addressed to them that talked about their personal lives.

“My daughter’s face was priceless; Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.”  ‘M’ from California.

This year I’m looking to grow this program and I am looking for Santa’s helpers to help write the letters.  We will supply you with everything you need.  Letterhead, example letters, stamps for the envelope and even the postage stamps.  You do not have to collect money at all—just help write letters which will be letters printed from your computer. 

So this holiday season, help find a cure AND make the holidays happy with a letter from Santa.  If you are interested; just hit reply to this post and someone will get back to you about the program.  Your ‘reply’ will not show up anywhere as I have to approve them before they are public.  I will use it to see your information and I will get back to you.

It is simple and fun—-get involved—do something.

Thank you,

I’m a diabetes dad.
