The NSPCC has teamed up with premium chocolate company Lindt to help Santa send special messages to children across the country.
The charity has launched their annual Letter from Santa campaign which gives children the chance to receive a personalised letter from the man himself.
The confectionery company, which is sponsoring Letter from Santa for the second year running, has pledged to donate £100,000 to the campaign through a portion of the sales of its special edition Teddy 200g in a Green Jumper, and employee fundraising.
The money will help the charity continue to provide vital services like Childline, which can often be the only place vulnerable young people can turn to over the holidays.
Supporters can make a suggested donation of £5 to receive one of eight designs personalised with the child’s name, address, gender, age, best friend or family member’s name and a special message.
Letters are age appropriate, with shorter text that is easier to read for younger children and longer letters for more advanced readers. There are also different age categories to make selecting the right letter quick and easy.
Letters can be ordered now for December delivery to ensure they arrive at the right time to get little ones excited.
Claire Hoyle, Head of Partnerships for the NSPCC said: “We’re thrilled that Lindt are once again sponsoring our Letter from Santa campaign. The festive season has long been associated with sweet treats and the support of one of the world’s finest chocolatiers will ensure that children across the country can feel the magic of Christmas whilst we safeguard the nation’s most vulnerable children from abuse and neglect this festive season”.
A spokesperson from Lindt added: “Lindt is proud to support the NSPCC Letter from Santa campaign, sharing the belief that every child deserves to experience the magic of Christmas. Bringing home the magic is at the heart of their iconic festive products, and the organisation hopes to help the NSPCC add smiles to the faces of even more children this Christmas.”
