Santa goes white for Tata Housing's Amantra

MUMBAI: Red Santa Claus, who is known to be happy always, is sad this year and is going white for Tata Housing‘s Amantra as white represents a spirit of hope and happiness.

White Santa as a concept has been coined and developed by strategic brand activation agency Candid Marketing.

The White Santa activity for Tata Housing‘s property Amantra is currently being executed across malls in Thane, Ghatkpoar and Mulund. The activity will witness a White Santa who is calling out to the kids in Mumbai to send gifts to him, so that he can then change his attire to red for the festive season and distribute the gifts among the needy children. The gifts can be of any kind and size and with each donation; the White Santa will receive some part of the red colour back on his suit.

Candid Marketing managing partner Amrita Kumar said, "White Santa is a lot cooler, a lot more fun and he takes gifting very seriously. Especially for those who need it like the underprivileged children. White represents a spirit of hope and happiness for all and that‘s the spirit of our White Santa."

"This is the first time such a concept has been introduced and we all at Candid are very delighted about it. We are extremely thankful to Tata Housing‘s marketing team to have understood the spirit of this concept and given it life. The property will be owned by us and we wish to see the White Santa grow happier each year," he added.

Tata Housing head - marketing services Rajeeb Dash said, "This is a unique initiative by Tata Housing to cultivate the feeling of loving and sharing amongst our younger generation and help the needy children through the innovative concept.This innovative concept theme is "Kids 2 Kids" where the gifts that gets collected by Santa goes back to the underprivileged kids of our construction workers. Through white Santa which is Santa of hopes we would like to have new beginning for these kids. Through this activation we would like to engage our customers and prospects of our project Amantra so as to be part of the celebration. So this Christmas take some time-out with your children and spread the cheer of festivities and teach them about the joys of giving, along with the Santa of Hope."

In order to amplify the activation, digital platform has been used by means of creating a micro site and links on social networking site Facebook. Tata Housing‘s page on Facebook has a red highlighted ‘Play Now‘ button, on clicking the link users are directed to this micro site.

The micro site allows the users to drag and drop gifts in the empty sack of the White Santa and turn his attire to red informing the users about the idea of donating the gift for the needy children and mention the locations where the activity is taking place.
