Santa Claus has been busy this year with Lighting By Veterans!

Santa Claus is back in 2016!

Santa Claus has had the busiest year after partnering with our local favorite Christmas Light Installation company, Lighting By Veterans.  Because of their efforts and the generosity of their clients, we were able to purchase $2,810 worth of Christmas presents for children here in the Dallas / Fort Worth area.  When it comes to walking a mile in Santa's boots, it's really doesn't happen without the support of hardworking entrepreneurs and parents that love their children dearly.  Some children only have Santa to count on because of multiple reasons and situations that our completely out of their control.  It is for this reason and many reasons like this one that our partnership with local businesses is so important so Santa can continue to reach out and touch people who still believe.

In 2016, the spirit of Christmas will continue as a few other local businesses will join the team and help out with our Santa Claus charity.  We're proud to add Five and Up Flowers, Make It Rain Marketing, Mckinney Contractors and Prosper Christmas Light Installation to our companies that will be assisting in Santa's efforts.  Our hopes is that we can quadruple our donation for the 2016 season and we're excited to see all of the smiling faces a few days before Christmas.  If you're interested in getting involved with our Santa Claus Charity in 2016, please email us at for more information.  Once again we would like to thank each and every client/customer who has contributed $10 or more and we hope that the Christmas spirit moves through North Texas again in 2016.  #BelieveNSanta #LBVets #bestmckinney #ProsperXMAS #5nupflowers #rainmakerseo
