#ShortNews: A 7-year-old boy writes letter to Santa asking for ‘very good dad’

A domestic violence shelter has shared a heartfelt letter written by a seven-year-old boy to Santa asking for gifts and a “very very very good dad”. The handwritten letter was first found in the child’s backpack by his mother – who shared it with the SafeHaven of Tarrant County staff, in Fort Worth, Texas.

The touching letter has since prompted hundreds of donations, including all of the presents on Blake’s list, according to the shelter, who wrote: “Blake is getting exactly what he asked for from Santa.”

And while the organisation received “more than 10,000 donated gifts” this year, the shelter’s staff hopes that the letter will shine light on the bigger issue – the prevalence of domestic violence.
