If Santa Claus asked you to accept a challenging mission to improve the human condition that involves personal sacrifice, blind trust and mind-blowing journeys through space and time, would you accept?

Nic Perugino accepted that very mission. As a small boy he dreamt of becoming a modern-day Santa Claus who delivers food and medicine to the world’s poorest children. Throughout his life he is visited by celestials, including the spirit of Saint Nicholas, the original Santa Claus. This special corps of angels helps Nic grasp the realities of inequality and poverty everywhere, and help him understand the true meaning of sharing.

Nic travels the world, ministering to leper children in India, working with Mother Teresa, and delivering life-saving supplies to remote parts of Africa. With the love of his life, Sara, he pursues his ultimate goal of leading people everywhere to realize that we can upgrade the human condition through a deeper awareness of our Creator’s love for us and by sharing our resources wisely. Nic and Sara spread this spirit of sharing, developing an innovative plan for a socially sustainable world.

The couple creates a successful global child relief agency and all goes well until Nic hits a wall, doubts his ambition to become a genuine Santa Claus, and begins to falter in the mission – until an unexpected gift turns it all around in a culmination that will thrill and inspire readers of every age.

Proceeds provide food, medicine and hope to children.
