ABC Family surprised America during the 2014 holiday season with Pop Up Santa’s unexpected gifts and appearances. This year, the network brings back the fun and goodwill to celebrate “25 Days of Christmas,” with all-new heartwarming events and sponsors.
This season, ABC Family’s Pop Up Santa has partnered with Reddi-wip, traveling coast-to-coast with the “Share The Joy” Food Truck. The initiative kicked off with a sweet surprise in New York City on Saturday, November 14th when the Reddi-wip “Share The Joy” Food Truck rolled up to Wollman Rink in Central Park with free hot cocoa and Reddi-wip topped holiday treats. Next, the truck will bring sweet treats to Angelenos at the Americana at Brand mall in Glendale on Thursday, November 19th. ABC Family’s Pop Up Santa and Reddi-wip will surprise shoppers during the Americana at Brand’s 8th Annual Tree Lighting Spectacular with a special Pop Up performance hosted by ABC Family talent. The “Share The Joy” Food Truck will make its final stop to help Chicagoans get Reddi for Santa on Saturday, November 21st at the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival.
In keeping with the Pop Up Santa tradition of fun secrets and surprises, other holiday treats will include special moments for fans and two very special surprises in conjunction with “Good Morning America.” Network talent will also pay a special visit to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to share some joy with staff and patients recovering from traumatic injury or life-threatening illness in the hospital’s renowned Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation Rehabilitation Center.
As a soundtrack to the season, Atlantic Records multi-platinum singer, songwriter and actress, JoJo has lent her voice to a Pop Up Santa original song, debuting during “25 Days of Christmas.” UCLA’s signature a cappella group, the ScatterTones, accompany JoJo’s powerhouse vocals to create a one-of-a-kind musical experience.
