This is pretty cool for the kids! I hope they have something like this when Cashton is old enough!
Old school letters to Santa are always fun, but these days your kids can stay in touch with him via text message too. SlickText, a mass text message marketing platform, is helping distribute messages from the North Pole and kids of all ages can get in on the fun for free.
The content is all child-friendly, of course, but when you get on the list, you can choose “child,” “adult,” or “senior” to get messages tailored to each age group. There are several selections you can make on the sign-up form to help personalize the experience. And here’s what you or your kiddos can look forward to getting: A text from Santa about once every five days until the week before Christmas, then one text a day until the big day. Santa will also send Christmas jokes, sayings, recipes, and fun facts to help keep the excitement up.
SlickText swears they won’t spam you and neither will Santa and they won’t try to sell you anything or sell your number to a third party. After Christmas, you won’t get any more messages, but you can opt-out anytime by replying with “STOP.” Their website says, “We’re just doing this to spread Christmas cheer.”
