Being home for Christmas is something most of us who celebrate it might take for granted. But there are those who are separated from their loved ones. This video shows how first, Skype is keeping those people in touch and second, a surprise where Microsoft brings those people together as part of their #MakeItHappen campaign.
Lani is originally from Chicago but had moved to Manchester in the UK. To make her Dad think she was still there, MS had a whole set up to simulate her home, in a back of a van just outside her Dad’s house. And then the surprise!
It’s a nice thought. There are a few things I would have done differently (I’ve seen so many of thesesurprise home coming videos, and there’s quite a specific viral formula for the ones that really do tug at your heart strings).
