1) To help promote the movie "The Note"(which will premier on the Hallmark Channel on December 8th and is based on a book by one of my fave writers, Angela Hunt), Hallmark has set up a special site where you can “leave a note” for someone special. After leaving a note, you’ll be able to watch a snippet from the upcoming movie.
2) Just a few days left to prepare a shoebox full of Christmas presents for a needy child as part of Operation Christmas Child!
