About your donation

All donations go directly to support Globe Santa, a program of the Boston Globe Foundation. The majority of our donations come from individuals, families and organizations within the community, giving what they can to help those in need. That’s what Globe Santa means when it says, “Give a little. Help a lot.” Small donations make a BIG difference by brightening the life of a child.
