This celiac Santa Claus has brought Christmas joy to the Boulder, Colorado community. He has been responsible for at least $50,000 in donations to the Center for Celiac Research at the University of Maryland.
He displays 21000 Christmas lights in his yard along with numerous inflatable toys. What makes his display unique is that it is connected to three web cams plus other technology that allows his viewers to turn lights on and off and to inflate or deflate his inflatable displays. He invites his viewers to donate to the Center for Celiac Research at The University of Maryland. The donations are entirely voluntary.

Be sure to have a look at my power page “Gluten Free Christmas” which summarizes everything I have written on the subject.
