Girl’s Letter Asking Santa For ‘A Home’ And Food’ Goes Viral

New Delhi:

Christmas is here which means new clothes, good family, joyful family reunion and so on. While for many of us the season is an unofficial license to buy the wishful items we have long, longed for, some can only wish for the basic yet necessity that we always forget to thank-a home and food. A viral story of a young girl asking Santa for a home and food is a reminder to be thankful for what we have. Writing a letter to Santa for what she wants for Christmas, the story of the girl reads,

‘’Dear Father Christmas, can you help.

Can we have a home for Christmas. Mam wants us to be all together can you give us some food and can I have just [a] nice doll for Christmas. Thank you.’’

The unnamed child posted the letter into a Santa post box at the Liverpool 6 Community Centre an Everton based community centre that provides ‘practical support and opportunities to socialise’.

The letter has since been shared by the Labour Councillor for Liverpool County Ward, Gerard Woodhouse, who used the letter to shed light on the plight of child poverty in the UK.

In the tweet, Mr Woodhouse wrote:

‘’Last week @L6Centre we started getting down Xmas decorations we placed The Santa post box in the cafe until grotto is set up,

Today I went into to @L6Centre to sort food parcels for residents while passing post box I looked in it !! Just read a 7 yrs old letter Vote Labour’’.
