Santa’s Helpers make Santa’s Letters accessible to all

The word Santa spelt in wooden blocks“Sitting down and writing a letter to Santa and then putting it in the post is a Christmas tradition for many families,” says Tina Morgan, spokesperson for New Zealand Post.

Every year New Zealand Post receives tens of thousands of letters from children with their Christmas wish lists to deliver to Santa. And this year Santa has gone digital! Thanks NZ Post children across the country also have the option of going online and personalising their own digital postcard to Santa too.

We absolutely love that for the fourth year running Santa’s Helpers at New Zealand Post and the Blind Foundation have helped ensure that children who are blind or have visual impairments can receive their reply in braille or large print.

Children who request a braille or large print letter receive the same text as the standard print letter. Braille letters are also accompanied by a standard print version to help parents read with their children and include a verbalisation of the picture.

Santa, (and your helpers) we absolutely love your accessibility leadership, enabling all kiwi kids to experience the magic or receiving, and reading, their very own Santa letter.
