The North Pole December XX, 20XX
A jolly greeting to you from the North Pole!
Christmas is fast approaching, and we’re all hard at work preparing for the big nights! You surely know that every year I visit children all around the world, spreading holiday cheer. But did you know I make other, special trips for children just like you?
I’ve only sent this message to a special group of children around the world – the children of military members, first responders and essential employees of key businesses. I know sometimes your (mom or dad) can’t be home on Christmas Day because they are working, keeping us safe, healthy and providing needed public services. Christmas is about family, and even though your (mom or dad) will be working hard on the 25th, I want your whole family to have a very special Christmas together.
With that in mind, my elves have helped me set up a special delivery just for you. You’ve been scheduled for delivery on…. (enter delivery date here)
Thank you for supporting your parents and understanding how much they world needs what they do.
See you Soon!
