BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Grom Social Enterprises, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: GROM), Curiosity Ink Media – its original story telling subsidiary that weeks ago threw open the doors to digital holiday venue, Santa.com – today debuted ASK SANTA, an AI-driven virtual experience that allows kids to engage with Santa Claus, anytime, 24/7, on mobile or desktop devices. Powered by industry-leading AI-powered conversational video technology from StoryFile, ASK SANTA, offers parents a safe, convenient alternative to mall visits and long lines. The unveiling of ASK SANTA was announced today by Darren Marks, Chairman and CEO of Grom Social Enterprises, Inc. Investor relations information on Grom Social Enterprises, Inc. is available at https://investors.gromsocial.com.
ASK SANTA, designed for kids of all ages, is available by accessing the virtual North Pole section of Santa.com, a winter wonderland brimming with Yuletide-themed games and activities. The experience allows kids to speak with St. Nick from the comfort and safety of their homes, while giving them the opportunity to ask a myriad of questions he is prepared to answer. The visits are now open and will remain so until Christmas Eve, when Santa embarks on his annual worldwide mission to spread joy around the globe.
“ASK SANTA is the perfect complement to the Santa.com, experience and one we hope kids everywhere will embrace and treasure,” explains Marks. “Our mission is to bring to the internet the same experiences the world fell in love with a century ago in traditional department stores: a magical and immersive environment that is all about Christmas; some one-on-one time with Santa Claus; and we’re embarking on an original movie that we hope will become an instant holiday classic. Hats off to the brilliant minds at StoryFile for helping us make our North Pole even more special!”
To experience ASK SANTA, parents must first create a Santa.com account for their child. Then, to ask Santa a question, kids simply press and hold the microphone icon and talk slowly and clearly. They can also use the keyboard to type out questions or click on one of the icons along the bottom of the screen to hear a prerecorded question answered in real time by Santa. ASK SANTA is also bilingual, and can understand questions asked in Spanish, and will respond in English with Spanish subtitles.
‘When we first unveiled ASK SANTA, we were delighted that it was critically-acclaimed, but the real payoff was knowing that kids from over 165 countries had conversations with Santa from the comfort of their own homes and with family and friends,” said Heather Maio-Smith, Co-Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of StoryFile. “Now, we’re very proud to see our partners at Grom and Curiosity Ink Media offer more children the chance to have fun with Santa’s storyfile through their new Santa.com holiday site.”
Santa.com is a dynamic holiday venue, overflowing with e-commerce and fun content for every member of the family. The one-stop holiday hub includes specially-themed editorial, curated gift lists, decorating tips, interactive games, and merry content, all of which is designed to ease the stress often associated with holiday preparations.
The site joins Grom’s growing stable of family-friendly, holiday-themed IP following its 2021 acquisition of Curiosity Ink Media, which also includes the afore mentioned original, animated feature-length film, which is inspired by such iconic holiday classics like “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer” and “Elf.” Additionally, the company has published books including Santa.com by Russell Hicks and Santa’s Secret Society by international best-selling children’s author Amber Stewart.

Savory & Partners: Digital Nomad Visas Sparking a Migration Boom
DUBAI, UAE, Dec. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The simplicity and lax requirements of digital nomad visas have made them easily accessible, and countries like Portugal and Spain, which have excellent infrastructure, great internet connection, and an outstanding standard of living, draw in more digital nomads by the day, according to experts at Dubai-headquartered citizenship and residency by investment advisors Savory and Partners.
A recent research quoted by the company estimates that there are 16.9 million digital nomads roaming the globe. This is a whopping 162% increase from 2019, just four years earlier.
As soon as Portugal introduced its digital nomad visa in October of 2022, the applications started pouring in. While the government hasn’t announced the number of applications it has received, Portugal’s Labour Minister did announce that the country approved 550 applications within the first six months.
Two months after launching its visa in September of 2021, Greece received 2,918 applications, approving an astonishing 1,693 applicants. The government is yet to release any new statistics, but going off that outstanding start it is safe to assume it is still garnering massive attention.
Germany also boasts impressive numbers, having issued a total of 3,638 visas in just one year since the introduction of its visa in 2018.
According to Residency Malta, the government branch responsible for the digital nomad visa, it has issued 1,041 visas to date, with an average approval rate of 78%.
Croatia, one of the first countries to introduce a pure digital nomad visa in early 2021 as a response to the rise in remote workers, has approved 680 applications, while 672 are still pending approval.
Not just Europe
“It’s not just Europe but even Barbados’ digital nomad visa, dubbed the Welcome Stamp, has been doing outstandingly well, receiving a total of 3,511 applications between 2020 and 2022”, a digital nomad specialist at Savory & Partners reports.
While digital nomads typically use visa-free access or visas to stay in countries for a few months at a time before moving on to the next, digital nomad visas provide a sense of comfort and stability that aligns perfectly with their lifestyle, giving them ample time to enjoy the country they are in before moving on to the next.
The rapid growth in application numbers and the surging demand for digital nomad visas isn’t surprising. They are extremely simple to apply to, have fast processing times ranging from a few days to a couple of months, and they do not require any business establishment or investment.
Portugal’s digital nomad visa, for example, only requires applicants to prove a monthly income of €3,040 per month, while Spain’s visa has a lower threshold of just €2,160 per month.
Savory & Partners is an accredited agent for multiple governments where citizenship by investment is offered. The company has coverage in over 20 jurisdictions, including Europe and was the first firm to obtain all five authorised agent licenses for the governments of the Caribbean Islands. It has processed second passports for over 4,000 citizens with a 100 per cent success rate.
With a presence in 3 continents and 7 countries and more than 60 experts worldwide, the company’s multinational staff comprises advisors who guide clients in English, Arabic, Farsi, French, Spanish and Hindi.
