The compassion shared from one spontaneous random act of kindness is elevating, priceless and not easily explained. It is an instant connection between souls that can change a life forever. This is the experience of being a Secret Santa. Being a Secret Santa has blessings beyond words.
Secret Santas share the following characteristics and values:
Anonymity: They do not draw attention to themselves and strive to protect their personal identity and those of other Secret Santas.
Leadership: They lead by example.
Integrity: They seek no tax deduction for their giving and they do not solicit funds from others.
Humility: Through belief in the human spirit, they share their wealth in a humble, selfless way.
Compassion: Through random acts of kindness, they tap into the human spirit and try to create in the recipient hope and a belief that they are worthy of unconditional love.
Humor: They would rather lose every dime they ever made than lose their sense of humor.
Friendship: They value their association with people of like mind and character; they are each a true ELF.
The Society of Secret Santas is an anonymous group of individuals throughout the world, performing random acts of kindness to those less fortunate.
Using their own financial resources, without a tax deduction and without soliciting funds from others, these leaders share their wealth with those in need. They give from their hearts remaining forever anonymous.
Every Christmas, Secret Santa "sleigh rides" light up a community with love, joy and faith in mankind.
Those touched often include the homeless or the working poor with barely enough resources for daily life. From laundromats and thrift stores to street corners and bus depots, Secret Santas and their loyal ELFs find and give to those least expecting.
Today, in an unsettled world the Society of Secret Santas serves as an example that random acts of kindness bridge all social and economic barriers.
If you have been blessed by the generosity of a Secret Santa, we would like to know your experience. Our intention is to share how acts of kindness affect lives in a positive way. Your name will not be identified.
