What is Operation Santa?

Operation Santa is a programme that directs the letters to those hands who can make kid’s Christmas wishes come true. These letters are written by kids to Santa. And it seems that IFC films have taken the North American rights to the documentary. It’s been 100 years that the post office has run the program. It filters all the letters to Santa and directs them to Operation Santa centres. These thousands of letters are delivered not only in New York City but in those small towns also where the post office is the heart of the community. And from there, these letters are delivered to strangers who want to help the needy. They send them toys and fulfil their Christmas wish.

Dear Santa points out the value of this American tradition. And the documentary will allow you to think about how you can lend a helping hand to the community in order to make the world a better place to live in.
