Heather and her helpers make wishes come true. She has been fulfilling wishes addressed to Santa for 20 years in service to those who suffer from poverty. For the last two decades, Heather, and her husband Steve Albini have raised funds from the “Letters to Santa,” a 24 hour comedy and music show, in collaboration with her former colleagues at The Second City. The funds are used to surprise more than a dozen families each Christmas morning with the money they need, and does so by treating them with the dignity that they deserve. Heather’s passion for helping Chicagoans in need compelled her to do more. She founded Unconditional Giving, and Poverty Alleviation Chicago to build on the success of “Letters to Santa” in order help more families year-round.
