You can actually become Santa this year by adopting a letter written by a low-income child to Santa with the USPS.

KWQC TV 6 reports that the United States Postal Service has started a brand new program to help low-income kids feel some holiday cheer this year. Starting Monday, November 25, 2019, you can choose to read a letter to Santa written by low-income kids and send them a gift. The USPS is calling it "Operation Santa".

According to the USPS website, you can "make someone's holiday in four steps". First, you can read through the letters and adopt ones that you love. When you pick one out, find the perfect gift. Make sure to keep it anonymous, because after all, it's from Santa. Wrap your gift(s) according to the USPS shipping guidelines. When it's all set, bring it to a participating Post Office with postage by December 21.

If you're fortunate enough to give back during the holidays, I think this is a really great way to do so. Think of the pure surprise and joy that these kids will get when they open a gift from Santa. I can't wait to do this.
