Santa & Mrs. Claus Call Center

Phone: 800-726-8222
Address: The North Pole
Volunteer: Volunteer Signup Form
Accidental Santa started as - you guessed it - an accident.  Each December, John Dickson's business phone number receives lots of misdialed calls from children trying to reach Santa Claus. His number is 1-800-SantaBarbara (726-8222) which happens to be one digit off from "SantaClaus" (726-8225). The first year it happened he answered all the calls himself and did his best to become the Jolly Old Elf. Now hundreds of volunteers help him. Accidental Santa is NOT a fundraiser and does not accept monetary donations or gifts. After Christmas is over the phone number becomes his real business line once again, for his tourism service that promotes the beautiful city of Santa Barbara, California.
