The Noerr Programs, operators of the Simon Santa Photo Experience, also invite shoppers to share Santa’s spirit of generosity online through the innovative “BeMerrySanta®” social media program.

Parents can set a good example by making a donation via The Noerr Programs to U.S. rural children in need through Save the Children, a 75-year-old non-profit organization.
