#ShareKindness through a cheery message this morning
It's a Christmas memory many have experienced and recall — waiting in long lines to take a child to sit on Santa's lap, only to see the child erupt in tears when the moment came to share what's on his or her wishlist.
One company has developed an alternative, using technology to allow children a different kind of opportunity to talk to the man in red. Make Believe Labs launched an app called "Hello Santa," which allows parents to schedule a video chat between their child and Santa.
The $14.95 price tag might seem a bit steep at first, but in addition to allowing for a video chat, the app then emails parents side-by-side video of their child's interaction with Santa, which can then be shared across social networks.
Tamron decided to use the app to check in with Santa on Wednesday, following up on how he was feeling after his big night.
