ACCEPT THE MISSION...
When Nic Perugino was a young boy, his mother told him that she believed he would grow up to be a great gift giver. His young mind envisioned himself growing up to be his hero, Santa Claus, delivering toys to children. As a young man, Nic quickly realizes much more is needed. He has a new vision, a vision of delivering food and medicine to the less fortunate. While attempting to make his vision a reality, Nic’s hero, the spirit of Saint Nicholas, introduces Nic to the concept of social sustainability. His simple vision now turns into a seemingly unattainable obsession. A special corps of celestials helps Nic grasp his role in the Universe and shows him the realities of inequality and poverty everywhere, helping him understand the true meaning of sharing.
Nic travels the world ministering to leper children in India, working with Mother Teresa, and delivering life-saving supplies to Africa. He pursues his ultimate goal of leading people everywhere to realize that we can upgrade the human condition through sharing our resources wisely. He spreads this spirit of sharing, developing a global child relief agency. All goes well until Nic hits a wall, doubts his childhood ambition to become a genuine Santa Claus, and begins to falter in the mission until an unexpected gift turns it all around in a culmination that will thrill and inspire readers of every age.
