The men behind the Miracle on 22nd Street

The first Christmas Jim Glaub and Dylan Parker lived in their Manhattan apartment, they received almost 400 letters addressed to Santa delivered right to their mailbox. They had no idea why kids' letters came their way - maybe a previous tenant had donated gifts or maybe the address mistakenly appeared on some website or school information. Regardless of why, they decided to do the right thing. With the help of friends, they answered the kids' wishes as Santa would. 

That was in 2010. Now six years later, the letters keep coming. The couple spreads the word along their social networks and arrange for the kids to get clothes, shoes, and sometimes even a Christmas turkey. And get this - they're in talks with Tina Fey to create a movie based on their experiences. It's called, what else, Miracle on 22nd Street.
