A little girl’s Christmas wish is coming true after a letter to Santa soared 684 miles on two little pink balloons, landing on a rural California ranch.
When the girl asked for toys and clothes for Christmas, her mother wasn’t sure how the family could afford it. She is out of work and her husband only recently found a job, with a paycheck to cover the overdue electric bills.
The rancher, who recognized the tattered letter written in Spanish as a note to Santa, traveled 50 miles to the nearest shopping mall on one of the busiest days of the holiday shopping season to battle the crowds and find gifts for the little girl. He planned on shipping the presents overnight on Friday hoping to get them to the Washington family by Christmas.
