Some kids want toys for Christmas. Little girls might want that new fancy dress. Little boys might want that new video game.
But for the kids at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, those kids just want to get better.
That's why the Kennedy Krieger Institute is asking Santa for more than $1 million this holiday season.
"Kennedy Krieger Institute is an internationally recognized institution dedicated to improving the lives of children and adolescents with pediatric developmental disabilities and disorders of the brain, spinal cord and musculoskeletal system, through patient care, special education, research, and professional training," reads a statement from the institute's website.
In 2010, the Krieger Krieger Institute's Festival Of Trees brought in more than a million dollars to better the lives of children. It's safe to say they're not on Santa's "Naughty List."
The festival runs through the weekend at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium. Kennedy Krieger has decked the halls of the Cow Palace, transforming the open space in holiday theme park for families and children.
Every dollar collected at the festival—private vendors aside—will benefit the institute's noble efforts.
