Have Santa Text Your Child This Christmas!

$11,247

243

Hi Kickstarter!

One holiday season I started to text my children for Christmas. They absolutely loved it and before I realized, friends and neighbors were added to the list. Soon, Santa and I were messaging so many children that I created a website to keep track of everyone's information.

This coming season, there are so many more parents and children that it's time to build a real system to support them all. I want this year to be the best one yet - but I need your help!

Help me spread this new age holiday fun to children all over!

Thanks in advance!!

Head Elf Jennifer
(...and Santa!)

Every day until Christmas children receive 1 or more messages from Santa, Mrs Claus or the elves EACH DAY in December leading up to Christmas...

Then on Christmas morning Santa sends a photo of himself next to your stockings or tree! (shhhh! you can submit the picture for Santa through the website)

Parents love it and their feedback is amazing! Here are some examples...

My FAVORITE are the thousands of adorable replies that Santa gets back from all of the children (read these - they're the best part).

To make this happen our team of smart elves need to build the system to help automate the process, sync up with phone providers, and a bunch of other geeky stuff that I won't bore you with.

UPDATE: We've already started designing the new site! Let us know what you think so far www.TextsFromSanta.com

The new system will allow parents to give fun info, choose to either receive messages by text or email and other fun features!

Now for the fun stuff! Our Family 2 pack and Friends & Family 5 pack are available for your children or to share with your friends.

Risks and challenges

As part of building the new system, we'll need to partner with international technology providers that allow us to send messages to different countries.

In the case that Santa's system doesn't support your country to send messages via text we will provide you with double the amount of memberships included in the reward. This way you can use one set of memberships to receive messages via email and the second set once our system supports your country for texting.

Other than that the only other risk is the reindeer getting hungry here at the North Pole :)
