Clan Claus Society awards

The Clan Claus Society Awards

We have created a 3 tier award system to recognize our members for their service to our society. The first one is also the highest award that we will have to offer. This award is for members only.

Order of the Benevolent Reindeer - OBR

Order of the Benevolent Reindeer Award

The Clan Claus Society is proud of having almost 400 members in 13 countries. We want to recognize some individuals for their hard work and devotion to our efforts of creating our Christmas family. We could not have reached this milestone without the hard work and dedication of our members.

This award, The Order of the Benevolent Reindeer, is the highest award the society has to offer its membership. It was created to honor members of the society that have distinguished themselves by their contributions, words, and deeds to support the mission and purpose of the society.

The purpose of the award is to honor merit, not mere popularity.
