Families Fulfill Holiday Wishes for Needy Kids With the Help of Shopping Website

Playing How Families Play Santa by Shopping Online for Strangers

With the holiday season upon us, this family is encouraging their kids to shop online, all in the name of giving.

Britt and Judd Rothstein told InsideEdition.com they wanted to teach their son and daughter that it’s never too early to start giving back when they introduced them to Daymaker.

The website allows shoppers to play Santa by making available the wish lists of 15,000 needy kids across America.

Families can create an account on their website and choose which holiday gifts, birthday presents or back-to-school necessities they want to purchase for underprivileged youth.

“If we can show kids at 5, 6, 7, that it feels really good to give, we’re part of raising a generation that grows up loving to help others,” Thomas Doochin, the organization’s CEO, told Inside Edition.

Seven-year-old Rhys Rothstein won’t get the chance to play with the new toys he picked out, but he said giving them away was even better.

“It’s nice to get gifts, but it’s even better to give them,” Rhys said.
