A man from Omaha, Nebraska took the holidays to a whole new level for the second year in a row.

Andre Dean dressed up as the Elf on the Shelf and flew around the country to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. His goal was to raise $20,000 during a 20 trip.

With some help from Delta, Andrew flew from Omaha to Atlanta, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and back to Omaha.

While in the air, he walked the aisles, telling passengers about his mission and asking them to give online donations via St. Jude's website.

During his layovers, Andrew walked through terminals and Delta Sky Clubs spreading cheer and smiles while raising money.

When all was said and done, #AndrewTheElf raised $25,295!
