For several years now, Santa Rodney has supported our Exceptional Family Member Program at Fort Belvoir in Virginia. We are a military community who relate to and appreciate volunteerism and service. Santa Rodney goes above and beyond to accommodate our plans. Each year he is a highlight of our festivities. The visit with Santa Rodney means so much to our military families and their children with special needs; it makes all the difference in the world - it isn't Christmas without him. He has just the right approach, in particular for our kids who have sensory or other issues. Santa America really is a blessing to so many - especially those who have difficulty getting out into the community. Thank you for all you do and please keep up the good work!

"Santa Walt" appeared at our home in the midst of a Family crisis, which was a very confusing and scary time For our children. He was authentic (even I almost believed he was the real deal) and he put a light in the eyes of my children I had not seen in many months. The organization WOULD NOT accept any form of payment for his appearance, even though I would have emptied out my bank account in gratitude. They are a group of very honorable men who do wonderful things. God bless all of you.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None at all, in any way.

I know there are some good "Santa's" Out there who have NO Idea who they are dealing with BUT the man who is running this "Charity' Is a SCAM artist and a LIAR!!!! DO NOT DONATE TO THIS GROUP! I knew he and his wife and his entire story is a LIE! Look over the tax returns and you can see he is using EVERY bit of money to pay HIS 'Consulting Firm" and his Mortgage........Please There are REAL Charities out ther...Ernest Berger is NOT running one!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have everyone contact his accountant for details on his taxes.....or the phone numbers for the families of the "Kids" Ernest Berger is seeing "All year round".......

Santa-America provides volunteer Santa visits to children in Hospice care, suffering with chronic pediatric conditions, or suffering post-traumatic stress disorder. Visits are always no charge to the families involved. Santa-America has formed an alliance with the Autism Society of America to create positive Santa experiences for children and families dealing with autism. Santa-America Santas also work with our Wounded Warriors and their children who deal with PTSD.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

spread Love, Hope, and Joy to all children who are disadvantaged in any way. Santa is a loving, caring, constant to children in difficult circumstances.
