Love to Give:
·         Now that shopping is fun again, celebrate the joy of gift giving by capturing “unwrap attacks” (those unforgettable, uncontrollable emotional moments that occur when someone receives the perfect gift)
·         Comedian Samantha Bee and correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, will report on a series of original webisodes
