Various agencies and sponsoring shelters reach out to us requesting help for the children in their care who have attested that these children, without the support of Operation ELF, would not receive any gifts during the holidays.
We receive the specific wishes of each child and those wishes are shared to generous sponsors like you, who are willing to bring magic to their holidays. Traditionally, sponsorship ranges between $40 and $60.
Sponsorship is the real magical part of ELF. Aspiring elves, like yourself, asking their neighbors, friends, co-workers and families to join them in sponsoring a child’s wish is what really creates a ‘family-like’ community. With so many children’s wishes, a lot of magic is needed.
Over time, the mission of Operation ELF has been shared by word of mouth with no actual paid advertising. We are happy that all our volunteers tell everyone about their experience of ELF, and often encourage their friends, families and colleagues to check us out here and on social media. Please follow and like us, too!
