'Post Mark' Gets Letters for Santa

Mark Perry, shown here, as “Post Mark,” has officially started his new job as the North Pole Postman with his trip to the Franciscan Hospital for Children in Brighton, Massachusetts.

During his visit, Mark received Santa letters from nearly 50 children according to a article that appears on the website.

Mark is quoted as saying, “Some of them were a little unsure, they thought it was Santa coming to visit. I had to explain that no, Santa only comes to visit on Christmas, but he sends me out during the year to talk to you kids and find out what it is that you want for Christmas and to deliver the letters back to him.”

Mark went on to say, “I figured I would start with the Franciscan Hospital for Children because eight years ago my nephew was born with a rare diesis called myotubular myopathy x. He was transferred to the Franciscan Hospital for Children after his surgery and his therapies and spent pretty close to the first year of his life there.”

Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and others can purchase personalized letters from Santa on his website Priced at $9.95, each letter will be postmarked from North Pole, Alaska. 

Mark says he will donate $1 to the Franciscan Hospital for Children for each letter purchased.

The deadline to order is Dec. 10.
