Santa.com Makes Giving Easy This Holiday Season
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Santa.com today announced two additional online offerings that are sure to make the holiday season easier and more fun – the Santa.com Gift Card and the Santa.com Online Blog, Santa Talks. Santa.com (www.santa.com) is a one-stop gift-management and shopping destination designed to make the holidays easier and more magical.
The Santa.com Gift Card, powered by Tango Cards, opens up a whole world of gift possibilities by enabling gift card holders to use the card at multiple popular retailers. Santa.com’s Founder and CEO Will Weisman said, “Santa.com’s gift card offers the ultimate flexibility. You can use it at top retailers including Amazon.com, Target Ã‚®, Zappos, The Home Depot, Pottery Barn, REI, Groupon and Starbucks. You can also donate the balance to charities or redeem the gift card for cash.” In the true holiday spirit of giving, cardholders can donate their balances on Santa.com to several leading non-profits including USO, National Park Foundation, The World of Children Award and Habitat for Humanity.
Giving back is a core value at Santa.com. The site seeks to instill a sense of gratitude and social awareness in its young audience. In addition to enabling the donation of card balances to charities through its gift card, Santa.com will be donating 1% of Santa.com gift card sales to The World of Children Award, an organization that sets the standard of excellence for child advocacy.
Additionally, Santa.com has launched Santa Talks, a blog where parents, gift givers and kids alike can get fun and practical advice for the holidays and other special occasions. In her column, Mrs. Claus offers advice to parents who write to her with holiday-related questions and dilemmas. The Kids Corner column provides kids ideas for making the holidays brighter and more meaningful. In Going Nutcracker, readers share fun stories of Christmas’ past. The Highlights column offers parents and kids tips on gift giving, decorating, and entertaining, as well as ideas for fun family holiday activities and much more!
As previously announced, Santa.com offers an electronic postal service accessible on the web, iPhone and iPad. The service enables children to write letters to Santa and hear back from him. By approving their child’s account on Santa.com, parents receive a copy of their children’s letter to Santa and can help Santa send a personalized letter back either digitally or through a beautiful paper scroll for under the tree. Additionally, the site allows kids to search for their favorite toys and create their ultimate holiday Wish List. Santa.com’s team of highly trained elves has teamed up with the North Pole to help Santa and other gift givers manage the Wish Lists of the good little boys and girls online.
“Santa.com makes gift-giving easier during the holiday season and throughout the entire year,” said Weisman, “Santa.com’s solution for wishing, sharing, giving and receiving can be used year-round for birthdays, graduations or just because. At Santa.com, every day is a holiday.”
