Not a question, just an FYI

Most of my family works for the USPS, and I just found this out. Maybe it will be helpful for some of your families next year, it is already a little late this year for Christmas.
When postal clerks pick up letters to Santa from children, they open them and read them when they have time back at the post offices. If the letter seems to be heartfelt and desperate, from a child, the USPS will contact the correct agencies and do what they can to try and get those children what they want or need for Christmas. Keep in mind though, a child's wishes on the Santa letter need to reflect the living situations they are in also. A letter from a nice house with new cars in the driveway won't get answered, but a letter that a mailcarrier recognizes as truly being needy is answered for Christmas. Just thought some of you might use this next year.
