Yesterday, I got a long-distance call (collect) from Santa Claus, and he asked me to cover for him again this year. But Santa Danny is only allowed to receive two things: Love and Money.
Love is the fuel that drives Santa Danny, and money is what he hopes to raise for the University of British Columbia’s Oral Cancer Prevention Fund. In the last few years, he has raised almost $3,000. Every penny that he raises goes to this vital cause.
This year, Santa Danny is hoping to raise $2,000. But this is not a charity drive – it’s my way of increasing awareness and prevention of cancer. Santa Danny also visits hospitals, hospices, dental study groups, schools, and other organizations for free.
So if your company is having a Christmas party – why not hire a professional Santa? The fee is $400 for a two-hour visit. Santa Danny has an RCMP criminal background check completed each November and has had his flu shots.
Here are some photos of his visits in previous years:

Another magical party! Bye Santa!
I know that money is in short supply, but this is an important cause. In the next twenty years, the number of people with cancer will double! You or a member of your family will likely be affected by this terrible disease. We’ve already lost too many friends and family members.
I’ve also included this link to one of Santa’s most memorable visit: Santa Danny’s Christmas Story
Dedicated to Dr. Denise Laronde and Dr. Leigha Rock
