From this humble beginning 32 years ago, the Magic of Christmas has grown to a volunteer family of 800 Santa’s and elves! On Christmas Eve we:

  • use 18 donated Calgary Transit buses
  • send the elves out on 36 shifts of six and a half hours each
  • visit over 500 families
  • bring cheer to over 4500 people in hospitals and other institutions

Santa and his elves raise funds through Christmas shows and donations from corporate and private citizens. Our reindeer buses (generously donated by Calgary Transit) are filled with the compassion of our benefactors and volunteers who commit their time and heart to make sure that love, sharing and caring are brought to people who may be alone at the most joyous time of year. And you thought you could hide from Santa…..for more information on the Magic of Christmas and how you can help click here.
