Archived: Letters to Santa, Part Two

Eastern Group Publications (EGP) and the Eastern Group Foundation, as part of our campaign to increase family literacy and teach the importance of writing, is proud to once again bring you a sampling of the many letters we receive through our “Letters to Santa” gift giving program.
The letters are presented here

as they were received. No editing, corrections or embellishments have been added. Each child who writes will receive a toy. As in past years, the letters are sometimes straightforward, “Can you bring me a doll,” or similar. But some of the letters are selfless, heart wrenching, asking for gifts for siblings, jobs for an unemployed parent, or clothes to get through the cold winter.

We hope the letters published over the next couple of weeks, will help spark your spirit of giving, and a desire to help someone less fortunate. Anyone wishing to donate, should call, (323) 341-7970 for more information.

Dear Santa.
Christmas means a lot to me like the day Jesus was born. What I am thankful for this Christmas is my family. I am also thankful for my friends. What I would like this Christmas is Guitar Hero World Tour for Playstation2, or I would like to get Midnight Club Los Angeles for the PSP. I think I should get this because I was the only one that received Principal’s Honor Roll from 4th to 5th. This is the reason why I really want these toys. P,s, My parents don’t have that much money. Also the family is growing up and they might not be able to buy everybody in the family presents. The money in my house is running out. Little by little house is becoming more and more poor. I would love to have a Christmas present; to not disturb my parents. If you send me something I will be really thankful.
Thank you for Listening to me
Sincerely, Carlos Sanchez.
