Secret Santa of Brevard is simply a group of friends who find families who are unable to provide a Christmas to their children. In 2012, the idea was created to help those in need annonymously in the true spirit of giving. In less than a month we were able to help provide three families provide their children with clothes, school/art supplies, and of coarse a few toys.

This is how we do it. We reach out to our family and friends to collect names of families who have fallen on hard times due to loss of loved one, loss of job or any other unseen situation. We then solicit a close relative or friend to be our direct connection to the family. Their duties are to provide us with the details of the family such as number of children, ages, and needs/likes. We never contact the families directly.

Once the family information is collected we then seek out help to allow us to purchase the presents for the families. We do accept donated unwrapped gifts if people choose to do so. The final detail that our direct contact is to give us is where the family will be on Christmas Eve. This is where the fun comes in.

On the evening of Christmas Eve, we take the families gifts that are wrapped and tagged for each child and put them in a large Santa bag. We drive to where the families are going to be and quietly sneak up to the door. Once we have everything in place, we ring/knock and yell out Merry Christmas! We then head to our hiding place and wait for the door to open and the family finds the large bag of gifts on their doorstep. Once we know the family has posession of the gifts we return to our get away sleigh and leave without them knowing who we are.

We feel the true meaning of giving from the heart is to not get recognition for the good deeds. Just sticking around and seeing the faces and hearing feedback from the direct contact is what makes it special for us.

This year we have collected five families and are having troubles raising money to make this happen. We decided to create this page to let all of our familes and friends around the world be able to help us out with this. The more money raised, the more families we can help. A promise to you is that every penny raised for this goes towards the families.

If you would like to find out more information or get a list of the items needed, please feel free to contact us directly at SecretSantaofBrevard@gmail.com

We have to have all donations turned in before December 22nd, 2013 so that we can do all the prep work. We thank you for your consideration in helping with this and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
