RICHMOND, Va. -- The holidays can be tough for anyone, especially if you are preparing for the arrival of a baby. And one of the most expensive things that new parents can buy is a car seat.

And car seats aren't just a requirement but a necessity to protect infants and children. The Children Safety Network says that child safety seats can reduce fatalities for infants in crashes by 71%.

So CBS 6's Melissa Hipolit decided to surprise some women preparing for the arrival of their kids for today's CBS 6 Month of Giving.

The CBS 6 Month of Giving made possible by Virginia Credit Union is underway. Watch for a new surprise every day in December on CBS 6 News at 6 a.m., 4 p.m., and 6 p.m. Have an idea about who we should surprise next, click here to email our team.
