The Spirit Of Christmas; A Giving Tradition

Summary:

Drew loves Christmas! Who doesn't? When Mama tells him that sometimes children don't get presents (even if they want to), Drew has an idea. He writes a letter to Santa offering some of his own toys and clothes. Santa picks them up, takes them to the North Pole, and then delivers them to children so their Christmas wishes can come true.
