Help the new year come in happily.

Christmas is over, but that doesn't mean you have to stop giving just yet. Why not finish up the old year, and start off the new, by doing something good for the people who are doing something good for you?

With the Sears heroes at home wish registry, you can do just that. Sears created a wish registry where our fighting men and women, men and women who are in Afghanistan and Iraq and other trouble spots, ducking bullets and avoiding land mines instead of hugging their daughters and snuggling with their wives, where those men and women can post the things they would LIKE to buy for the wives and husbands and sons and daughters and nieces and nephews and moms and dads -- like to buy, but can't, because they're off fighting and because they don't have enough money.

That's where you come in. You go to the heroes at home wish registry, read the wishes, and then click the link to donate the money to buy those things right then and there.

The soldiers get a wish granted, you get to feel good, and some kid or parent gets at least a little comfort going into the New Year. Everyone's a winner.
