Lone Star Santas is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of
men and women who live in Texas, and portray Santa Claus,
Mrs. Claus, Elves and helpers. Santas can be either real bearded
or designer bearded because it is what is in our hearts that
matters. We believe in the Santa Claus
This organization was formed for the exchange of ideas, networking, helping each other, and to provide general camaraderie.
We became a bit more formalized in early 2009 and determined
that there are costs involved. Therefore, we instituted
1st time dues at $50 (per family unit) with yearly dues of
$20 afterwards. At that time, we elected a Claus Council
of five members to oversee the functions necessary to make
the group run well. We like getting together a few times a
year to meet and greet and break bread with each other.
When the tornado in Joplin, MO happened in 2011, several
members saw the opportunity to reach out to children and families
affected by the natural disaster. After all, adults receive
more focus during these horrific events. Children are left
to be cared for mostly by their parents and other family members.
Who better to bring smiles to children's faces than Santa
Claus? And, amongst all the loss, make sure they had something
they could call their own...a new toy. Monies were donated,
toys were donated and purchased by members, and a Convoy of
Toys was organized. This was our first call to action. It
was devastation to the community but we saw the need to reach
out to children of all ages to bring Love, Hope, Joy...and
Toys, all wrapped in a big Santa hug directly to those impacted
by natural disasters.
We are now an officially formed 501(c)(3) and have voted
in a Board of Directors and appointed officers. But we still
like getting together for food and fellowship...especially
The only rule for this group is to talk and act the way Santa,
Mrs. Claus, Elves and helpers would.
