The Noerr Programs, operators of the Santa Photo Experience at Lenox Square, Mall of Georgia, Town Center at Cobb and Northlake Mall, is sharing the heart of Santa online this holiday season, through the “BeMerrySanta®” program where families can keep up with Santa’s daily musings on his Facebook page at facebook.com/BeMerrySanta or Twitter @BeMerrySanta. Parents can also input their child’s good deed into Santa’s Magical Badge Generator and then print out their child’s customized badge, or show it to Santa on a smartphone or tablet during their visit.
Guests to every Noerr set will have the opportunity to share Santa’s spirit of generosity 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. To create even more magic for donors, The Noerr Programs will offer a chance for a lucky family of four to win a trip to Orlando, Florida.
