- How would you help the world be a kinder place as an elf?
- What acts of kindness would you do?
Email can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children who are chosen for the 364Elfship team will participate in their first act of kindness on Sunday afte rinittiation by helping to wrap presents for those who are less fortunate. According to the foundation, the children will also be given an "emblem chain of magic" and walk with Santa's sleigh during the Dickens Parade.
