Win a helping hand this Christmas!

Christmas is just around the corner and for most Kiwi families, that means it's a time for joy and celebration. When it comes to the most eagerly anticipated festive season, we think of friends and family getting together, gifts under the tree and a table laden with delicious food. It's no wonder the kids get so excited!

But at Woman's Day, we know Christmas can also be a tough time for many families. For those who are struggling – whether it be emotionally or financially – Christmas can be a sad, lonely or stressful season. If you know of a family who you think deserves a helping hand this Christmas, we'd love to hear from you.

You can email or write to us telling us in 500 words or less why you believe a family merits an extra special end-of-year gift. Five families will receive $1000 prize - $500 cash and a $500 grocery voucher - plus a Woman's Day subscription to help make Christmas special this year. Nominate a family in need and help make their Christmas a little brighter. After all, Christmas is the time for giving.
