Calling All Creative Minds

Need Your Ideas!

I'm working on a special project called the "12 Days of Christmas" (search) — with a twist. It would be a special feature each day on our show for 12 days. But instead of focusing on the usual commercial gift giving, I'd like to feature things people can buy or do that will help OTHERS. I already have a few ideas on things to help wounded soldiers (search), children of soldiers killed in action, etc. — but it doesn't have to be only military-related. It can be just something that helps others who are in some way in need.

You all have been so great about sending in story ideas that I'm coming back to you for inspiration on this project. Also, if you know any celebrities who are promoting good causes, please let me know and I will invite them on the show! Please send your ideas to me right away at
