Children’s Author and adoptive father partners with international children’s aid charity.
Santa’s Wish is a new children’s Christmas story book, written by Samuel Langley-Swain, who is also an adoptive dad to two young children.
The story of Santa’s Wish is one of love, kindness and care at Christmas time and in the true spirit of the book Samuel has partnered with Acorn Overseas, an international charity which works with vulnerable and orphaned children in countries such as Thailand.
Santa’s Wish tells the story of a family who are visited by Father Christmas on Christmas Eve and he takes them to the North Pole and picks out their letter and a boy makes a wish about people not being lonely and sharing.
This partnership with Acorn Overseas aims to celebrate Christmas as the perfect time to inject a little bit of hope, magic and optimism at home and further afield. It will help support the on-going fundraising efforts of the charity, with half of the proceeds from every book sold through this special link going directly to the charity - www.santaswish.co.uk/acornoverseas
Samuel was inspired to write the story after conversations with his own adopted children, who hadn’t always had the happiest of Christmas experiences in their early childhood.
“When I realised through my own children, how many vulnerable families spent Christmas without the warmth of Christmas and magic of Santa, I wanted to write a story that was uplifting and hopeful and encourage children to think of others, not just the presents they expect.”
Natasha Whiting, founder of Acorn Overseas, explains how important partnerships and fundraising like this is for the continued work of the organisation:
“When I first read the story and heard of how Samuel had come to write it based on the experiences of his own children, it really hit me, because we work tirelessly to support and care for children in the most desperate of situations abroad. Our aim is to bring a little bit of love, light and happiness back in to these young children’s lives - giving them safety and security, to be able to grow and learn in an environment that they deserve.”
Santa’s Wish is Samuel’s first children’s story book, but he already has another four penned and in the pipeline to be published, through his own publishing company Langley-Swain Books - each one helping to unravel complex issues for young readers..
“I am continually amazed by the challenges my children (and many like them) face in their daily lives and this is the inspiration behind my stories. I’m so proud to be able to support good causes like Acorn Overseas through the sale of books, while spreading positive messages and supporting children in learning to read.”
