lancaster pa: The Best Christmas Present He Ever Got - 12/22/08 12:04 PM
This video is of a World War II veteran who was on NBC and it was mentioned that he had no heat.  After it aired people started emailing and sending money, gift cards, and food donations to this man.  Someone helped him get more of his veteran benefits that he hadn't been receiving.
