Christmas can be difficult if you’re away from your family and friends.
My husband’s entire family lives in Italy and while he misses them everyday of the year, holidays sting more.
But earlier this year, Rob’s parents finally got Internet access at their home and the first thing his brother did was set up a webcam and Skype for them.
For Nonno and Nonna, seeing and hearing their little granddaughters through the computer is priceless.
Every Saturday morning, we call Italy computer to computer through Skype. Julia loves to show off her toys to her little cousin Emily and say “Ciao” to all her aunts and uncles. It means so much to us that Julia can still be seeing her family in Italy every week and really knowing who they are. She constantly talks about Nonno and Nonna and her memories of being there on their farm stay fresher when she can see and talk to them regularly.
Skype is bringing families together and they want to help you stay connected with friends and family over the holidays.
So as a special holiday hardware giveaway, two of you will receive a Skype Certified Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 webcam.
If you’d like to win one of these two Skype Certified Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 webcams leave us a comment and tell us if you have ever used Skype before and if you win the webcam, who you’ll call first.
