What’s the news: T-Mobile is giving kids the chance to visit Santa Claus … virtually! Starting Thursday, December 10, head to SantaCalling.com to schedule a free, live video chat with Santa. You’ll get the video afterwards to share the joy with family and friends. The website will be live starting Thursday, December 10, so if you’re trying to visit early, Santa will not be there ... he’s a busy guy this time of year!
Why it matters: Visiting Santa is a memorable holiday tradition for families, but in-person visits may not be possible for everyone this year. That’s why the Un-carrier is giving everyone — not just customers — the chance to chat with ol’ Saint Nick from the comfort of their couch, ensuring a safe and merry holiday greeting.
Who it’s for: Kids around the country in need of Christmas cheer.
BELLEVUE, Wash. — December 8, 2020 — Ahem. A holiday poem, from your T-Mobile fam.
COVID’s got us home-bound
At Christmastime this year
But fear not, all you Santa fans…
The Un-carrier is here!
T-Mobile’s gifting families
FREE virtual Santa chats
So gather the kids and wish lists
And don those fuzzy red hats
Forget the lines and waiting
This year, Santa’s coming to YOU
And for the Santa-lap-weary,
It’s a lot less scary, too 😊
It’s free no matter who you’re with
T-Mobile, grinchy Verizon, or even AT&T …
‘Cause EVERYONE deserves some joy
This year, especially.
T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) is putting the HO-HO in HOME this year, keeping Santa connected with kids across the country through the magic of a real-time video call, all the way from the North Pole. Starting Thursday, Dec. 10 through Wednesday Dec. 23, anyone — yep, even Verizon and AT&T customers! — can schedule a free video call with Santa on SantaCalling.com. And, you’ll get a video of your Santa chat, so you can revisit the memory and share it with friends and family. Even Santa’s time is limited — especially this time of year, but if his schedule looks booked, don’t worry … more time slots will open daily at 9 a.m. PT.
“Holiday celebrations will look a little different this year … but T-Mobile is making sure the kids can still visit Santa, this time from the comfort of home,” said Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile. “Cozy up with your loved ones, swap Santa’s lap for a laptop and get ready for a personal chat with the big guy. Merry Christmas from your T-Mobile fam!”
