A Concordia sorority is offering free Zoom calls with Santa this weekend.

The Santa Project is an extension of Kappa Phi Beta, a local Montreal sorority. This organization is registered with Concordia University, but made up of students from McGill University, Université de Montréal, and Université du Québec à Montréal as well.

For a third consecutive year, Kappa Phi Beta, will be hosting their Santa Project. This project was created in 2020, during the pandemic, and aimed to bring joy to children through free video calls with Santa Claus.

"In the last two years, our project has reached over 400 children around Canada, the United States and France, and we cherish the privilege to have a positive impact on their lives. This year, we would like to continue to reach out to as many children as possible."- Mikayla Glumac, Kappa Phi Beta Montreal - President

Tips from Santa!

Here are some tips to make sure you have the best experience possible! Be on Time Make sure you are ready a few minutes before your call so that Santa can provide you with the full experience. If you miss your call, Santa cannot re-schedule it, he's got cookies in the oven! Quiet Location Make sure you are in a quiet location in order to hear Santa Claus! If you are using earphones, check that they work beforehand and have an extra pair ready to go! Do a Test Test your devices video and audio beforehand to avoid any technical problems during the call! If you have never used Zoom before, running a test is recommended.
