Anonymous donors pay off Kmart layaway accounts

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- At Kmart stores across the country, Santa seems to be getting some help: Anonymous donors are paying off strangers' layaway accounts.

The benefactors generally ask to help families who are squirreling away items for young children, often paying for toys or clothes.

At an Indianapolis store, a woman paid off the layaway accounts of up to 50 people. She even handed out $50 bills. A store manager said she was doing it in memory of her husband, who had just died.

Dozens of other donors have been active in Nebraska, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana and Montana.

Kmart representative say they did nothing to instigate the
secret Santas or spread word of the generosity. Kmart is one of the few large discount chains that has offered layaway year-round for about four decades.

Teen's anti-bullying video goes viral

SACRAMENTO - A bullied 14-year-old has stood up for himself in an online video - and has become a national icon.

Jonah Mowry's heart wrenching video was made at 4 a.m. It starts out simply as a teenage boy telling us his name, but it quickly turns into an emotional confession.

With tears in his eyes, Mowry tells peopel watching that he's been bullied since the first grade because he is gay.

The video was made in August before Jonah started school and in the video he says he's not ready to go back because he's scared the bullying will continue.

The video might have remained buried on YouTube, but last week, Perez Hilton blogged about it and then it went viral.

The video has now been viewed more than 7.4 million times.

Jonah got tweets of support from celebrities like Nick Jonas, Rosie O'Donnell, Jane Lynch and anti-bullying crusader Lady Gaga.
