Real Letters

Examples of letters to Santa (These may not be adopted)

Below are samples of letters to Santa from past years that Be An Elf adopted. You may not adopt these letters. You may only adopt letters through the wonderful USPS website, at starting November 18, 2019. In the meantime, the samples below will give you an idea.

Be An Elf is hoping to adopt lots of letters to Santa this year from the USPS website. Our goal is to raise enough to send a $100 Target Gift Card to the Mom of each needy family, mark it “For your kids’ needs and wants,” and let the Moms do the Christmas shopping. Gifts to Be An Elf are tax-deductible.

Of course children’s last names and addresses have been removed by the excellent USPS staff to protect childrens’ privacy. Journalists will find a selection of high resolution images here.


Help us bring smiles to needy kids on Christmas morning.

Only volunteers may contact us. Santa will not see your message here! If you're seeking gifts, here is the best place we know where you can write to Santa!
