This year, Americans can help fulfill a child's Christmas wish with just the click of a mouse.
The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program has been a nationwide tradition since 1982. Since that time, millions of names have been picked off Christmas trees in stores and shopping malls.
But this year the organization has teamed up with J.C. Penney and launched the Virtual Angel Tree.
There is an Angel Tree logo at the top of the J.C. Penney homepage. From there, consumers can search for angels close to their homes.
According to ABC's WAPT in Mississippi, Lt. Col. Charles White thought of the idea of Angel Tree 30 years ago while working with the Salvation Army in Lynchburg, Va.
"My 45 years as a Salvation Army officer have taught me that people still care," he said. "And they still dig down and they may sacrifice themselves to give their neighbor some help."
