So we hit the streets spreading Christmas Spirit and cheer! It was amazing to see so many people giving encouraging and kind words to our boy. Santa was the happiest of all because he was so excited to see others dressed up spreading the message of Christmas.

Update #1

My name is Barry Maynard. I am the father of a wonderful, kind, and giving 4-year-old-boy. I know every father thinks that about their child but continue to read on and I’ll explain why I do about my little boy. My son’s name is Koen. In the last two years, Koen has told me and his mother that he wants to be Santa Claus so he can do good and help people find Christmas cheer. The last few times he has told us this, we have thought it was cute and went on with the holiday season, but this year is different. Koen has been persistent in his request for a Santa outfit and when we ask him why his answer is always the same. He wants to spread Christmas cheer and help people that need food, clothes, and toys for Christmas. Realizing that this is not some cute fluke and that he is seriously wanting to do this, his mother and I have been inspired to help him in his request to spread Christmas cheer and raise money for families in need. We have created a fund-raising Facebook page and a fund-raising account through Fundly.com. We set the goal to reach $200.00 to donate to the local WAMY Community Action Organization and ordered him a Santa costume and I have ordered myself an Elf costume so I can take up the role of being Santa’s helper. We have purchase bells for Koen to hand out to random people and spread Christmas cheer while spreading the word about Koen’s fundraising account in hopes that people will return the kind gesture from Koen with a donation towards his cause to help others. One good deed or act of kindness always sparks another.
