BALTIMORE — The U.S. Postal Service's Operation Santa is now online.

For the first time in over 100 years, you can view children's Christmas Wishlist’s from around the country and help make their holiday extra special.

Through December 14, children can go to the Baltimore Main Post Office on Fayette Street to write a letter to Santa.

The letters will be mailed to Santa Claus and they're posted online for any Secret Santa. A child can also send a letter from home.

“We have children unfortunately sometimes who may not otherwise receive anything for Christmas, and this is an opportunity for them to write a letter and be adopted by anonymous donors and hopefully have something under that tree.” said Jovan Barnes, Acting Manager at the Main Post Office.

Secret Santas can search by state for local kids.

"I already have something for Christmas and that's my family. So, I want to get something for my mom because when she smiles, I smile, because seeing her in life makes me proud to be on this earth." said an 8-year-old from Maryland.

Anyone wishing to adopt promise's letter can do so online.
