Tabloid does not want to make a habit of warm fuzzy stuff like this but . . . some nice people at some nice companies are trying to do something, well, nice.
You just have to go to a Web site and get your plastic ready to `HelpOut' the Salvos to help out a kid for Christmas.'
A network company, a disty, a marketing mob, a publisher and a toy company who are too nice too want to be named here are trying to help the Salvos to give a child a merry Christmas.
With Christmas just around the corner, they say you too can help the Salvos make a child's Christmas more memorable by donating a toy.
Each toy you donate will be gift-wrapped and delivered to the Salvation Army before Christmas and will certainly go a long way to making a less fortunate child's Christmas very special.
Get to the Web site www. helpout.com.au/ and, as the organisers say, `show these kids that we in the IT industry really do care by donating'.
By the way, the names of Santa's helpers are on the site, but don't tell anybody!
