The holidays mean different things to different people. Folks are celebrating everything from Christmas to Kwanzaa to Hanukkah. Families come from all over the world and everyone has their own perception of how the holidays should play out. For years, Santa Claus has been represented by an image of one kind of person. We rarely see any kind of Santa diversity. How do we know that Santa Claus isn’t different across cultures? Well, he should be.
Thanks to The Ravenel Agency, families can diversify their children’s holiday experience. They launched the Black Santa Video Call app which allows children to interact with a Black Santa Claus via smartphone. The Blacksanta App was designed after CEO Amber Ravenel’s niece was not convinced that Santa could look like her. She wanted a way for her to identify with Santa Clause so that he looks similar to people in her home and family. It is important for children to know that diversity is key, from early. As our society becomes more diverse, situations around them should reflect that.
As our society becomes more and more diverse, I think it’s crucial that there is diversity and inclusion in all aspects of life, the tech tools we use and that should include Santa Claus as well.” – Amber Ravenel, CEO The Ravenel Agency
With the holidays around the corner, this is the perfect way to elevate the holiday spirit for the family. The app is currently available in the iTunes App Store for $2.99. The Ravenel Agency plans on making some additions to the app including different genders and more ethnic groups.
