T-Base Communications celebrates with Canada Post in breaking Guinness World Record(TM)



    OTTAWA, Nov. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada Post recently received recognition
from the Guinness World Records(TM) for helping Santa respond to the largest
volume of letters to Santa - letters that are answered in more than
25 languages, including braille. T-Base Communications provides the braille
translations to Canada Post at no charge. T-Base established a long-term
partnership with Canada Post in 2002, benefiting blind, deaf-blind and
partially sighted children from around the world. Each year, T-Base ensures
that Santa can respond directly to blind, deaf-blind and partially sighted
children, replying to wish lists received in braille on a daily basis. Letters
in braille have been received and alternatively responded to throughout Canada
in both official languages, and the program has been as far-reaching as
Belgium, France and India.
    "This partnership has greatly benefited the Letters to Santa program,
assisting in setting the Guinness record by making it possible to reach more
children worldwide," says Robert Waite, senior vice-president, Stakeholder
Relations and Brand at Canada Post. Children are encouraged to send their
letters in Braille, including their return address, to :

    SANTA CLAUS
    NORTH POLE HOH OHO
    CANADA

    "With the Santa Letter-writing Program, Canada Post truly delivers. Their
ongoing recognition of the importance for blind, deaf-blind and partially
sighted children to independently write to, and receive letters from Santa is
commendable," says Sharlyn Ayotte, President and CEO of T-Base Communications.
"We consider ourselves privileged to provide a service that brings the magic
of Christmas to a greater number of children, subsequently contributing to
Canada Post's impressive record-breaking numbers," adds Ayotte.
    T-Base will continue to work with Canada Post on the Santa Letter-writing
Program in the coming years, further extending the reach to children with
disabilities next year by offering expanded alternate format communications
such as large print, e-text and audio formats.

    This release is also made in an accessible format through Canada Post,
(braille, large print, e-Text and audio), by calling 1-800-267-1177.
