When Alfie and I were dating long distance, having a webcam was a lifesaver in keeping our relationship alive and well. And having a phone and webcam comes in so handy when we go on vacation to the Philippines or the UK, when I usually stay an extra week or two with the kids while Graham goes back to the US and works. Imagine what it must be like if you were away from your family for months at a time!
Online retailer AllAmericanDirect.com is doing their part to help out American military personnel who are away from their families for extended periods of time. Their Laptops for Flat Tops program awards 2 laptops with webcams to deserving military families, every 2 months! If you have a family member serving in the military and think a laptop with webcam can help keep the family bonds strong (or know a family who does), enter here. Their summer contest starts tomorrow, June 1.
