CompuServe is giving a present to the homeless this Christmas, by teaming up with charity Centrepoint.
By downloading a special seasonal screensaver, CompuServe customers can donate to the charity for the homeless. Members will be charged one dollar (about 60p) for the screensaver, with all the money going to Centrepoint.
Charges incurred to members for the time taken to download the program will also go to the charity.
The screensaver features a 3-D Father Christmas in a variety of scenes.
Among other activities, he surfs across the screen and models sunglasses.
"As the winter gets colder, Centrepoint's finances are stretched further and further," said the charity's chief executive Victor Adebowale. "It's great CompuServe is giving us this Christmas present. We're asking all CompuServe users out there to put Centrepoint on their Christmas lists and download for a dollar."
The screensaver can be downloaded by logging on to CompuServe and using the command GO UKSANTA. It will be available until 31 January next year, so people receiving the Internet as a stocking filler this Christmas will also be able to participate.
