As you might remember, Pete the Elf had one too many eggnogs at the Santa’s Workshop Christmas Bash and as he wobbled home, he dropped Santa’s Nice List! Then of course, the North wind blew in and scattered pieces of the list to the four corners of the earth!
And if Santa finds out…whoo, boy.
Look at Pete. Such a derpy little fellow, isn’t he? The poor guy needs some help finding his list! After the whole “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer” thing, it’s pretty clear Santa has road rage issues, so you can only imagine the fireworks if we don’t find this list in time.
Now I don’t know about you, but I know PLENTY of helpful, kind folks in the Writing Community. In fact, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to find out if some of them were on the missing Nice List. Maybe YOU can think of someone, like a critique partner or a writing buddy, who has supported you all year long. And maybe, just maybe, YOU might want to help Pete out and do something nice for them on December 19th.
If you would like to find out more about OPERATION: HELP THE ELF! the original post is HERE and if you fill out this FORM I can email you some more details. If it sounds like your thing, we would LOVE your help to spread some seasonal kindness & cheer!
