Last month we asked you, our lovely readers, to help us find some families who could use some help this Christmas season. We were flooded with responses from so many of you and touched by your desire to help.
As we have been reading over the nominations, we have been moved, sometimes to tears, by the stories of so many parents persevering through some very difficult times.
We are still narrowing down the families and wish that we were able to help each one.
We have also been deeply touched by the generosity of many companies who have been helping us to fill our sleigh of gifts for our Under The Tree Program. First, we have the companies who originally came on board for the Christmas Giveaway, generously donating items for our sponsored families.
But then we had companies immediately write to us, upon hearing about our program and seeing our posts, to find out how they could help. Although they knew it was too late to join in on the Christmas giveaway, they still wanted to donate something special to our families in need.
One of our favorite things about the Christmas season, is the generosity, goodwill and love that is poured forth from others.
Kodak was one of those companies to respond with their donation of five Easyshare M863 Digital Cameras! These fantastic cameras not only have 3X optical zoom, HD picture capture, but also come in six different colors.
The Kodak Easyshare M863 Digital Camera is simple to use and packed with the features you need to get great looking pictures.

- 3X optical zoom lens

Thank you so much Kodak for your generous donation.

Also, by the end of the week, we will be posting about our selected Under the Tree families and the wonderful companies that are helping them this holiday season.
Thanks so much Kodak — we know five families will be squealing with delight as they capture their holidays on their new Kodak camera!
