We are looking for children and adults who would like to be a 2016 Secret Santa for a needy child. So far we have over 20 children looking for a Secret Santa.

Our needy children have written their letters, listing what they wanted Santa to bring them for Christmas. We have pictures of the children with their letters and will take pictures after Christmas, to show the child(ren) chosen by a Secret Santa's have received the gift(s).

We do not wish to put a hardship on anyone's holiday. Secret Santa's are only obligated to secretly gift one gift to a child! They put multiple items they would like to receive, but any Secret Santa only has to gift one item to a child. Please let us know which child you wish to be a Secret Santa for, so we can make them as chosen.

If you have any added questions or would like to learn more about our Secret Santa program, please feel free to e-mail us with your questions. Those who wish to order gifts onlline can have them mailed to our registered business address.

So far we have picutres and letters from some of our Tucson, Arizona needy families. As more of the children's pictures come in, they wil be listed. The children's pictures can be seen on our Public Group Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/groups/58374164742/

Last years Secret Santa pictures can be seen on this Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BigHeartsWithHelpingHandsOrg

In 2015, we had two children being a Secret Santa for a needy familiy. Those pictures are seen here: https://www.facebook.com/SecretSantaChildrenForNeedyChildren/

10. HE HAS BEEN ADOPTED BY A SECRET SANTA We have a 10 yr. old boy who says he wants his first new pair of shoes. He has had second hand shoes all of his life, so his one desired wish is to have his very own pair of shoes. A Gift Card from a Shoe Store would probably benefit him better, than if a Secret Santa were to make the shoe purchase themselves. This way we can make sure his shoe size is accurate, along with him choose the color of shoes he would like to wear. He has not yet mentioned anything else that he wants. I am sure puzzles, board games or the game Battle Ship will not be bad ideas. This will let him and his grandpa have some one on one time together, since his grandpa is the only parent figure in his life. HE HAS BEEN ADOPTED BY A SECRET SANTA

11. We have a 6 month old boy named Christopher. His mom had to help write the letter to his possable Secret Santa. He is requesting a stroller, clothes and age appropriate educational toys for Christmas.

12. We have a 1yr old girl named Aniya. Her mom helped her write her letter to a Secret Santa. She wants clothes and age appropriate educational toys.

13. We have a girl named Desiree. She has written a letter to Santa asking for an American Doll, an Easy Bake Oven and food accessories, a little baby, skirts, lip gloss, shoes, a toy bunny, a dress and shorts.

14. SHE HAS BEEN ADOPTED BY A SECRET SANTA We have a yr old girl named Aliya. She is 10 yrs. old. She was asking her Secret Santa for a Beieve It or Not book, a How To Draw Book, pencils, good erasers, stuffed animals, Barbies, childs size guitar, Barbie Dream House, Hatchable, Shopkins, sand gold, sand diamonds and a Grocery Game (Musical items can be found at a low cost on either www.MusiciansFriends.com or www.Amazon.com) SHE HS BEEN ADOPTED BY A SECRET SANTA

15. We have a 12 yr old boy named Adrian. He would lke a White and Blue Yankees Hat, a remote for my Playstation 3 and The Arriving Spiderman 2 Playstation 3 game. (Unsure what the title of the game is, due to not being able to read it well.)

16. We have a 4 yr. old boy named Paul. HIs letter to a Secret Santa says that he would like a Descovery Child's educational computer (ages 3 and up), Train Set, Clothes, Superman toys and Batman toys.

17. We have a 6 yr old girl named Nevia. She would like to ask Santa for a bike, a diary, Barbies, Babies, Toy cash register with fake money and for the Frozen Elsa and Anna dolls.
