KYGO CHRISTMAS CRUSADE FOR CHILDREN – First organized in 1983 by a small group of “Santa Cops,” the Christmas Crusade for Children is a program designed to enable city and state police and sheriff’s department personnel to bring the joy of Christmas morning to underprivileged children. Today, over 30 law enforcement agencies continue the work of familiarizing themselves with individual family situations, and specifically with the needs and holiday “wish lists” of the children. Through 2008, the Christmas Crusade has touched over 190,000 kids, thanks to the combined outreach by thousands of officers, KYGO listeners, major businesses and concerned individual Coloradans.

THE PURPOSE OF THE KYGO CHRISTMAS CRUSADE – 

Our purpose is to brighten the spirits of children who would not otherwise receive a gift on Christmas morning, and to present police officers as positive figures in their lives. It is community policing at its best, delivering a message of heartfelt caring and concern for children. The Christmas Crusade for Children is a 501(c ) (3) non-profit organization, Federal ID # 84-1127073

Testimonials/Reviews

“The artwork is a Magical Kingdom of Vibrant Color,  a must see.  Original art now showing at the Kirkland Museum!”

—Hugh Grant, Director/Curator Kirkland Museum

“This is the most beautiful Children’s Christmas Book I’ve seen personally in years!”

—  Stacy Sanders/Sales Manager Borders Books, Colorado

“I have just read an award-winning book! Santa & The Little Teddy Bear is a masterpiece.. The illustrations are unparalleled in color and detail.  Teachers and professors could use this creative and ingenious book alike.  Teachers will find a wealth of rich vocabulary and a book to expose children to other countries and cultures.  In the college setting, this creation could be used for writing and drama classes. Additionally, I can see Peter Lucking, the author, as an artist in residence for a high school or college. His skills are unequaled in both word and art. It is a movie just waiting to be produced, take a look at this Tom Hanks!”

–Claudette Gilbert, Teacher

Amazon Review/ Santa & The Little Teddy Bear

As I settled down for a (hopefully) good Christmas read, I was more than delighted and my Grandchildren were captivated by the new Christmas classic, “Santa & The Little Teddy Bear”. The author paints a vivid and delicious picture of Christmas with fat, fluffy snow flakes, jingle bells, candles and a little toy shop at Christmas Eve. This lavish and beautifully illustrated book is an heirloom quality work of art with 22 full color pictures, thirty-eight Christmas carols, songs and music for lots of family Christmas joy.


The adventure begins with Santa, his reindeer, and Bilbo the little teddy bear who needs a family for Christmas. As Santa and Bilbo travel the globe,they visit places like Holland, Italy, Australia, Africa, and Hawaii. We share the adventure and learn about holiday traditions around the world as well as the true meaning of Christmas. This book will be a treasured classic in my house that I will pass it on from generation to generation. I was so happy to see a new Christmas book come out that has depth, quality and the essence of the spirit of Christmas giving. Enchanting and magical illustrations! On a scale of 1-10 I give Santa and The Little Teddy Bear +20!
