Market Mall's Santa Tracker Connects Children to the Big Man Up North

CALGARY, Dec. 15 /CNW/ - This December, Market Mall has partnered with Santa Claus himself to create the online Santa Tracker, a new website where kids can add their Christmas wish lists and track Santa's progress on Christmas Eve, as he travels around the world.

"We're delighted to offer a magical, non-commercial experience to website visitors, allowing unlimited accessibility to Saint Nick and the excitement of the season," says Debra Manastyrski, Senior Marketing Director Western Canada Portfolio (Mountain Region) for Market Mall. "Since December 3, we've had over 530 wish lists added, scrolling across the screen for all to see and enjoy."

Now all children have the unique opportunity to connect with Santa Claus.

"Some of our exceptionally sick patients have been unable to sit on Santa's knee this year, for precautionary measures," says Larry Mathieson, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House(R) Southern Alberta. "But Santa Tracker has brought Mr. Claus to them - a wonderful gift for these special children and their families."

Visit the website on Christmas Eve and view footage of Santa's annual trip around the globe. The web provides accessibility to everyone - now, even the Big Man at the North Pole.

Santa Tracker can be found by children young and old at marketmallsantatracker.com. For those still wishing to see Mr. Claus in the flesh, Market Mall's Santa Playland is open for fun and festive pictures with Santa between now and 3pm on Christmas Eve.
