Miracle Origin Story
Twas the month before Christmas and all through New York…
Jim, an eager theatre elf, was immediately propelled to action and went door-to-door, theatre-to-theatre all around New York to get people to take the letters. Over 150 letters were fulfilled that year.
That Christmas, Jim and Dylan were featured on the homepage of the New York Times with Sarah Klein and Tom Mason’s video, entitled “Miracle on 22nd Street.”
Since then, thousands of people have volunteered to help, and inspired Amanda Lehner to encourage us to make an official non-profit that connects families in need with real-life elves.
The story has inspired a major-motion picture that is written by Tina Fey and coming out in 2020, just in time for the 10th year anniversary!
