The Post Office began on 11/11 the National Campaign Santa Claus 2011 campaign, which presents children who write letters asking for gifts. In 2010, 1.2 million letters were posted to Santa. Of this total, the campaign collected and delivered 685,698 gifts.
Those interested in collaborating can participate in two ways: as helpers or sponsors. Helpers read, record information, and select cards. Godparents are people who “adopt” a letter, providing the gift requested by the child. The letters are available for adoption in units of the Post Office.
The gifts must be delivered by the sponsors in the points published by the Post Office so that, later, the delivery is made by the company. “We depend on society and entrepreneurs to engage in the project together with the Post Office and adopt, sponsor the business cards so that we can make more happy children,” said José Furian Filho, vice president of Post Office Business.
Campaign dates may vary by state. Official information about the Santa Claus of the Post is found on the website www.correios.com.br or by the telephones 3003-0100 (capitals and metropolitan regions) and 0800 725 7282 (other locations).
