Caribbean Christmas – Bring Santa Claus to Santa Marta!

Update posted by Laura Collier On Dec 17, 2014

For the second pre-Christmas community celebration, there were 600 children participating -- all listening to Christmas stories, singing carols and having fun together!  We're expecting at least double that on Christmas eve for the big day and Monica will be leading the "novenas" all week to get the kids and families in the Christmas spirit.

Thanks to everyone who has already donated and shared!  Just 3 days left to give and help us make sure that all of the kids and families that participate will have a special Christmas.

In Colombia, there are traditionally 9 days of celebration before Christmas called "novenas".  Monica has started the novenas with the community and the kids have started getting into the holiday mood with songs, games and even a living nativity scene!

Thanks to everyone who has already given.  We've reached more than half of our goal with online and offline donations.  Every little bit helps!

Wow! Less than 2 days and we already have more than $300.  Thank you so much to everyone who has donated.  Monica confirmed that she has already reserved the first batch of Christmas dinner groceries at the super market.

Later, they will be picked up and packed for each family.  Here is a pic from last year with lots of families receiving their special Christmas dinner packs.
