Letters for the Santa Claus Post Office campaign can be sent online this year in Rio de Janeiro. Letters have to be handwritten, photographed or scanned and sent to Santa’s blog. Adoptions will also take place over the internet.
The adoption of Christmas postcards – the ones that children send to Santa Claus placing orders – will be online this year. Because of the pandemic, the Post Office made adjustments to the campaign.
The children have until this Wednesday (25) to send their letters through the campaign blog. Those who do not have complete access to the internet can also deliver the letter at any of the in Rio de Janeiro stations.
Children of 10 years of the age group in socially vulnerable situations can participate in the campaign. The letters must be handwritten and then photographed or scanned to be sent to the campaign blog.
It is important to send a clear image so that the message can be read and understood by Santa Claus. Letters that meet the action criteria will be available for adoption on the campaign blog. The adoption of children’s requests can also be done through the blog.
The initiative also includes letters sent by students from public schools (up to the 5th year of elementary school) and by children sheltered in daycare centres, shelters and socio-educational centres.
To comply with sanitary protocols for preventing coronavirus and avoid crowding, adoptions will be made only over the internet. Godfathers and godmothers should access the Santa Claus post office blog and click on “adopt now”. Based on the location informed, letters and suggestions for places to deliver gifts will be made available.
The sponsors will receive confirmation of adoption in the registered email. To view, all the adopted letters access the online adoption page through the blog and click on the “my letters” section.
The delivery of gifts will be made in person, always with special attention to health safety protocols, like wearing a mask and avoiding crowding. It is possible to consult the delivery points in several cities in Rio de Janeiro through the campaign’s own blog.
