Celebrate the holiday spirit with us and Google Local San Francisco this year by fulfilling a kid’s wish by bringing a new unwrapped toy with you to Mission Rock. As a thank you for playing Santa, the Press Club will hand you a glass of bubbly. Mission Rock has a wonderful brunch complete with bottomless mimosas! 

Can’t make it? Stop by and drop off a toy at SF Momo's or Mission Rock anytime between November 27 and December 16th, and you’ll still get a glass of bubbly.

3 more days!

We can't believe it either. Our countdown is slowly reaching our kickoff event in San Francisco! Just 3 days until we put our Santa hats on and make a child's holiday one to remember.

"I think during the holidays, our efforts produce so much more than material objects. Even if those efforts result in something as simple as a toy, we have the ability to provide joy and a sense of warmth when needed most.Giving is the greatest gift during the holidays, and it’s an experience and responsibility we can all partake in."

Our very own Harrison Kratz is featured in Teach.com's week-long blog series about giving back!

This holiday season, everyone has the chance to be Santa.
Introduction

Operation: Social Santa was created through the idea that giving is the greatest gift one person can give during the Holidays. Since we now live in a time where communication is both social and boundless, it is our mission to build a collaborative effort among social media driven communities to bring the gift of the holidays to those who need it most.

Operation: Social Santa is comprised of one-night holiday parties organized by volunteers where professionals and community members are able to celebrate the holidays and donate toys to benefit underprivileged children in their area. 

Originally named Tweet Drive, Operation: Social Santa was founded in October, 2010 by Temple University student and social entrepreneur, Harrison Kratz. After some rapid planning, Tweet Drive was held in 24 cities and collected about 2,000 toys in its first holiday campaign.

Building upon that initial success, the we went international in 2011 to hold events in 38 cities around the world while collecting 4,200 toys. Now that we are officially Operation: Social Santa, we are looking forward to building this collaborative effort with the help of our volunteers, partners, and champions.
