Operation Santa is definitely a reminder of the simplicity of actions required to make a difference in the world and reach out to others. We should never forget that the act of kindness is not only about the receiver gaining something, but it is also about the giver extending their hearts with compassion and experiencing the joy to put a smile in another person’s heart.

In some of these letters, people share the most profound and personal space. They really reach out and pour their hearts out, in hope and faith that someone might just hear them. And better yet, answer their letter.

It is beautiful to know that people still have faith in the spirit of Christmas and its true meaning, of uniting together.
