Messages from Santa

Would someone in your family enjoy a video message from SANTA?

Ziolas.jpgPictured: Santa with one of his favorite families: the Ziolas! Ryan Ziola '05, '17E, Bennett Ziola, and Anne Golden Ziola '04, '10A. Anne serves as the Executive Director of Alumni Engagement at Doane.

Each year, Doane University's Lincoln campus proudly hosts a Holiday Open House for students, graduates, faculty, staff, and friends. Unfortunately, this year's much-anticipated event has been canceled as we continue to work toward controlling the COVID-19 pandemic.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the season!

We've made arrangements with the North Pole to have Santa deliver a special Christmas message to children from our Tiger families.

If you would like your child or children to be among the recipients of this video email from Santa, just fill out this form with the appropriate email address, and we’ll be sure to have the message delivered sometime in early- to mid-December. There’s no charge for the general message to all children. Submit contact information by December 1, 2020.

If You’d Like a Personalized Message…

As an extra-special surprise, Santa will send a personalized message to your child or children in exchange for a $15 donation to Doane Lincoln's LIVE Doane scholarship in honor of the late, great Janice Hadfield. This scholarship helps support nonresidential students. Things are busy in Santa’s Workshop, as you can imagine, so the offer is only available to the first 50 families. Santa will acknowledge your child or children by name and make note of their Christmas wish lists. Just complete the form below to receive one of these personal messages also to arrive in early to mid-December. Submit contact information and donation by December 1, 2020.

Additional donations to the LIVE Doane Scholarship without a video message can be made here. Write LIVE Doane Scholarship in the "Write a Note" section of the form. 

Messages from Santa have closed for this year. Have a Happy Holidays!
