Pearl.com Hosts Free “Ask Santa” Website for Children to Ask Santa Anything About the Holidays

Pearl.com, the largest source for help from real professionals online, is hosting a fun, free Ask Santa website from November 27 through Christmas Eve for children everywhere to write in with their questions for Santa Claus. Inquisitive kids excited about Christmas and their parents puzzled by tough holiday questions, like how Santa delivers so many gifts in one night, can turn to www.asksanta.pearl.com for answers to anything they’ve ever wondered about Old Saint Nick.

Unlike other sites and services, and local shopping malls, that invite gift lists from children, Pearl.com’s Ask Santa website addresses questions from kids about the idea of Christmas and Santa Claus’ life in the North Pole. This year, Pearl.com will donate one dollar for every question submitted on Ask Santa to JDRF, up to $20,000.

Some of the most popular questions that children asked Santa Claus on the site last year include:

  • How do you fit presents enough for the whole world in one sack?
  • What is Mrs. Claus’ first name?
  • What is your favorite cookie?
  • Why do you wear red?
  • How can reindeer fly?

“We’ve all been looking forward to the second annual Ask Santa site because it’s fun to see the fascination children have with Santa Claus and the holiday season, said Andy Kurtzig, CEO of Pearl.com. “The rest of the year, Pearl.com connects people with real professionals to help answer important real-life questions and concerns. We’re excited this year to not only bring some magic to kids, but also help kids with type 1 diabetes through a contribution to JDRF for each question asked on Ask Santa.”

About JDRF

Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is now the largest charitable supporter of T1D research. The goal of JDRF research is to improve the lives of all people affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners who share this goal.

Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion to diabetes research. Past JDRF efforts have helped to significantly advance the care of people with this disease, and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. More than 80 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education.
