Dear Santa, Please Give My Mother Her Job Back

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Dec 24, 2008

NEW YORK - Because of the economical recession, many people felt helpless for future prospect. LokLok, a Chinese elementary student living in New York Flushing sent a letter yesterday to Santa Claus, asking him to help his unemployed mother to find a work.

In his letter he wrote that his mother worked in the bank. But in September the bank had a staff reduction, and his mother got laid off. She has been looking for work all these months, but she still cant find a job. His mother is very worried and unhappy. So for Christmas, LokLok wants a job for his mother and he hopes that Santa Claus could help him realize this wish.

This letter was addressed to the North Pole Santa Claus. LokLoks mother said that his letter made her very moved. She said this is the best Christmas present I ever gotten. The past office Chinese staff Ma Wenli said that all letter to Santa Claus, will be delivered to a special department for processing, but she said that not every letter will receive reply.
