What if Santa had a really bad year? by 


What if circumstances beyond his control had him unable to keep his elves gainfully employed?
And found him unable to care for his reindeer?
Or keep his house in the North Pole?
What if the worst possible set of circumstances came together in a perfect storm blizzard and set him back so much he had no choice but to turn to the streets and hopefully an (ill-funded) shelter with (in)adequate heat?
What if all the people he brought so much joy to stopped acknowledging him? Simply walked by without “seeing him”?
Without as much as a passing glance?
Without wondering whether he was hungry or cold or just needed to talk?

My shopping is all done for the people I care about. But today I am going to do a little more shopping for the people we all need to care about.

Don’t spare change. make change.™
