Christmas Day is getting closer, and before the day officially arrives, many locations offer the opportunity to take photos with Santa. However, sometimes it is difficult for black parents to find a Santa Claus to take their children to.
However, a Texas mother could find a way to solve the issue.
According to CBS News, Jihan Woods, a doctor and mother of twins, launched a Kickstarter campaign last year to fund her Black Santa Locator app. She was able to raise $ 5,000 in 30 days. The result was an app called "Find Black Santa" that lists Santas in 35 states, and in Washington DC
Jihan talked about their development of the app and said, "I really wanted my children to have one See Santa Claus who looks like you. It is important to me that they experience diversity in all aspects of their lives, including Santa Claus. “
Terri Lipsey Scott, executive director of the African American Museum of Dr. Carter G. Woodson of St. Petersburg, FL said these families drove almost an hour to take a photo with the black Santa Claus on site. Scott said: “Voter turnout is incredible – there are so few options when it comes to the availability of an African American Santa Claus. This element of self-esteem is also so important during the holiday season. “
