Life certainly hasn’t been business as usual in 2020 and this Christmas will bring its own challenges. But in the middle of putting up decorations, baking cookies, cancelling events, wrapping presents, and wondering how you’ll manage your favourite seasonal traditions, Marlbourough Mall invites you to help them spread some holiday cheer.
One of the favourite holiday traditions, for kids and parents alike, is visiting Santa Claus and getting a photo while you’re all dressed up in your seasonal finery. While that simple fun has become very complicated in 2020, you can head to the Marlborough Mall Free Santa Photo link for a Digital Santa picture right from the comfort of your living room. It’s a chance for you to don your fanciest holiday dress or your ugliest Christmas sweater, be silly or be serious, and capture a holiday memory from this unique year. Take as many photos as you wish and have some fun with it!
These Digital Santa photos are offered for free, but Marlborough Mall is asking you to help them pay it forward with a donation to Trellis. This year has been tough for everyone, but especially for those most vulnerable. Trellis helps youth and families find a home, safety, and a sense of belonging. Your donation provides basic needs such as food to eat and a place to sleep, but your support also offers kindness, community, and hope. You can help ensure that Trellis can meet the needs of youth in group homes, the Avenue 15 emergency shelter, and other community-based housing programs for young people working to end their experience with homelessness.
So, while you’re enjoying your holiday traditions, even if they have to be modified this year, pause for a few pictures and to remember those who are in need. A chance to spread some holiday cheer will never get cancelled. Merry Christmas!
