Dear Friends,

I need your help! We still have just over 500 unanswered letters to Santa and time is running out. Gifts are due at the school on December 15 and I fear there will be children who don’t receive one. Gather your friends and help us. If you have social media, please post this newsletter for us. We need a Christmas miracle and we need your help. 


If you can’t purchase and wrap a gift within this time, we can do it for you. Each $30 donation will cover a child and we are accepting Amazon gift cards as well. You can make a tax deductible donation using Zelle with our phone number @ 312.296.5311 or send a check to Direct Effect Charities, 4044 N Lincoln Ave, #400, Chicago, 60618.

I can’t remember the last time we had letters remaining and we are working hard so that doesn’t happen. Please help us to close out the program this year and make sure that every child is covered.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give me a call or send an email! My co-Santa, Michelle Grunfeld and I are going to work 24/7 until the last letter is sent, the last question answered. We put our hearts into this campaign and we know that you do too. We need your help now, more than ever.

With love and gratitude,

Michelle DiGiacomo

“I ask myself, how did this happen?” Letterman said. “And I’ll tell you how it happened. It wasn’t because of me. It was because of hundreds and hundreds and perhaps thousands of people who helped me. And I would just like to say, we have to help each other or nothing will happen" One of life’s absolutely universal truths, he said, is the great feeling we get when we help other people. “If you help someone, in any way, big or small, automatically you will feel good about yourself.”
