I received a wrapped gift, I couldn't help but open it to find out what it was. To my surprise, it was exactly what I asked for, a lightweight hammock that I can take on the go and camping! I was shocked and super excited that I am now able to relax in nature with my pets in a super comfy hammock. Thank you so much, you are all great!
Hi Briana,
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas! I work as a photographer, so I was very impressed that you wanted a camera! I was about your age when I got my first camera and have loved taking pictures ever since. I hope you enjoy it and create some wonderful images with it :)

I wish you all the best,
Dear Karla,
It takes a strong young woman to walk in such powerful boots.
Stay focused. Stay spirited.
Stay fierce.

Happy holidays-as a foster kid myself-sharing the love.

Pay it forward where you can-even in the smallest ways.

Season's Greetings!

I hope you have a WONDERFUL holiday season. You picked such a great gift-my husband and I are both artists and love it. It's something you'll enjoy for your entire life...even if you're just doodling on a restaurant napkin, which we sometimes do! :)

I'm sure you'll make lots of great, creative interesting art.

Our Mission

Children’s Action Network is proud to present SantaCAN—a unique gift drive for Los Angeles foster youth.  We are asking for your help to ensure that this is a wonderful time for these children by making sure they each receive their most wished for gift from a wish list they compiled.

SantaCAN began as a small annual holiday party for at-risk youth and has grown into an online event that has granted holiday wishes for more than 11,000 children in foster care in Los Angeles County.  Children’s Action Network is so grateful to our supporters who made this possible.

A very special thank you to our Archangel Anne Simonds for championing and supporting SantaCAN.
