General Motor OnStar Partners with NORAD to Track Santa


I will have more info on NORAD Tracks Santa as Christmas Eve approaches, but since today is really the beginning of the Christmas Season I thought I would make today's post about. OnStar's partnership in that endeavour.

Most of us have a preferred car company and for some reason, mine has been Chevrolet.  I have no idea why, but I have a loyalty to the brand.  So I was excited to learn that the General Motors OnStar program has had a long standing partnership with NORAD.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) tracks Santa every Christmas Eve; and as I said earlier, I'll post more on that program on December 23rd... before Christmas Eve.  However, the important takeaway from today's post is that since 2009 General Motors OnStar has been teaming up with NORAD to help in that tracking.

By pushing the blue OnStar button in your vehicle on Christmas Eve, you'll be connected with an OnStar Advisor that can provide you and your child a location of Santa as he journeys around the globe.  In case a child is concerned Santa won't be able to find them, the OnStar Advisor can assure them that the big guy will indeed be on his way!

The service will run from 6 a.m. EST Christmas Eve to 5 a.m. EST Christmas Day.  Also, every time someone pushes the button during those times, GM will donate $1 to the Canadian Red Cross (up to $3000).

A big Thank You to OnStar as well as the great folks at NORAD!
