What are two things that just about everyone in the world can recognize?
Mickey and Santa Claus. Well we aren't all in Disney but we all are getting in the holiday spirit. Santa Claus is an international symbol for happiness. Santa puts smiles on people's faces and spreads joy across the world.
My name is Jameson Roberts and I recently moved to Jersey City. About three weeks ago I was on Montgomery Street packing my car to go to work and a mini van pulls up. Out of that mini van an elf appears, a lady in a full elf costume. I thought, she is in the holiday spirit so early. The lady elf had the power to put a smile on my face.
Did it cost her anything to make me feel happy? No, a simple elf costume made me feel good. I thought, why don't I get in the holiday spirit also. I went to my home in Freehold and found my Santa hat and decided to wear it until Christmas day. I went to work that day at the American Hotel, Santa hat equipped. On entering the building I held a door open for an elderly couple walking out. They said, "Thanks Santa, have any gifts for me?" I responded, "If you like some protein powder I sure do." We all laughed and smiled. All because of a Santa Hat's power to spread happiness and open people up. It then came to me I was not Santa Claus. I was Santa Cause.
Anyone can be Santa Cause. All what it takes is wearing a Santa Hat. In the 3 weeks that I have worn my hat, I have gotten into numerous conversations with people that I would have never spoken to. Smiles have been spread at no cost. Happiness never decreases from being shared.
Become a Santa with a Cause. My best friend John Murphy and I have produced 100 Santa hats that read Santa Cause. The goal is to sell all 100 by Christmas. Each hat I would like to receive a minimum of a $20 donation. All proceeds will go to a children's charity. Even if you donate $5 or the hats sell out or you are too far away, wear a Santa hat and feel the power of happiness it posses. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Wear a hat. Spread happiness. Help children. Be a Santa with a Cause.
