    We have had such a hard year. There is myself who is 47, my adopted daughter who is 19, my niece who is 23 and my great niece who is 3. I have diabetes, high blood pressure, and sinus tacycardia. My adopted daughter has Graves Disease, my niece has hemeplegic migraines that give her stroke symptoms and my great niece has torticolis. Her cord was tied around her neck at birth which caused weak neck muscles and problems with balance. We all work very hard when we can work. Each of us has a job but we also have a lot of Dr appointments. We all give back when we can but we only make enough money to kind of make ends meet. We have no extra money for birthdays or christmas. Even though we would love fancy gifts, I think we need clothing the most. I wear a woman’s 2X and love tunics and leggings, my daughter wears a juniors or ladies medium. She likes Jeggings and tshirts, my niece wears a medium or large. She likes leggings or Jeggings as v neck tshirts, my niece who is the most important is a 5t and loves anything girly. She is a blessing. She loves Disney princesses. She likes cuddly blankets. Anything at all would be a blessing to our family. Thank You for helping our family at this time..

    We are a family of 5. My fiancé was laid off in September, has been unable to find work. I work 3 hours a day as a aid in school. And we have 3 girls, 9, 13 and 16 all hoping for a happy christmas. But we do not have money for groceries, let alone, gifts. Is there anyone out there with a heart that can help a family in need this christmas and put smiles of a families faces.

    I am a 29 year old father to my 2 beautiful children ages 6 and 7 monthes. I am married and just dont know what to do anymore. I have had a good career but now laid off and can not find employment. I have watched my children unnervingly go without and I have always had such a hard time asking for help.There are days when I don’t know how I will feed my kids or if we will have heat for the winter. My car was reposed and me and my wife’s marriage is being put through so much and I hope that we can hold on.Now That Christmas is coming I listen to my oldest tell me all the things she wants and what santa will bring for her and I have to go into the other room and cry. I try to be strong but I feel so weak. Ive put all of my pride behind me and have to figure out what I can do for my family. Ive done so much charity work and donations that now being on the other side I dont know how to take it or why ive waited so long to look for help. I dont know why I have found it necessary to let out such personal things about my family but for the first time it feels good to actually let it out even if no one is listening.And for whomever has become into a situation like mine my prayers are with you always.
    Sincerely
    Ryan Big Mountain

    Hello all, and thank you in advance for any help given this christmas season. Up until almost a year ago I would have never though that we would be in this predicament. We always had a relaxed financial situation but all fell apart the beginning of the year. We have three children ages 14, 13 and 9 and in January 2014 my husband lost his job. He has been actively seeking employment but nothing has come through. In February of the same year I lost my job due to lack of business. I am a Real Estate paralegal and unbelievably to date I am still unemployed (any job opportunities are also welcomed). Unemployment benefits ended for the both of us and for the first time ever we were forced to seek Federal Cash Assistance. As we are a family of 5 we were able to qualify for food stamps ($700 a month) and cash assistance ($749 a month). Nonetheless, neither of these amounts are enough to cover our expenses. With Rent, car insurance, cell phones and other bills besides utilities we have been forced to go to soup kitchens, food pantries, clothes drives and other places for general assistance. I remember crying the first time I was in line for 2 hours waiting outside the salvation army to get bread and pastries. I could honestly say my husband and I have applied to over 303 jobs and have gone to over 30 interviews to no avail. My husband has even stood outside store to be picked up as day laborer. At this point I am desperate for help, in the past we have been able to give our children everything they wanted and this year I don’t have means to give them anything at all. I don’t ask for money, all I ask is for someone out there to kindly give any toy or christmas gift to my children or any employment possibility for either my husband (floor sander)or I. Our children shouldn’t have to suffer our current circumstance it is not their fault.
    Thank you and God Bless

    COLCHESTER, CT. Hello. Thank you in advance for any help I can get paying for Christmas this year. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am the mother of 2 children. A boy, age 13 and a girl, Age 11. My husband was paralyzed in an accident in 2006. After his accident he couldn’t bear the thought of not working to pay for his family, however he was laid off in 2009. Unfortunately, I was also laid off in 2009, and we now have no income. We have been getting by from the love and support of our families, however it has been an extremely tuff few years. I would love to be able to give my children a little bit of Christmas this year. Thank you.

    Connecticut, Branford area: Hello and seasons greetings! I appreciate all who read this post, your kindness goes a long way! I am a mother of 2 children, a 5 year old daughter and a 2 year old special needs son. As many other good honest people have, we have fell on hard times this year. Between taking care of my children and providing a roof over our heads, we are finding it almost next to impossible to provide a Christmas This year. My kids believe that Santa will come and help with everything and were trying to keep the faith that we will be able to provide a few things under the tree! I try to explain to them the true meaning of Christmas and that its also about helping others in need. This year we are going to volunteer at the local soup kitchen so my kids can see that there are others also in need. I am just trying to find a way or a push in the right direction to provide a few gifts under the tree. I have contacted toys for tots but have not yet received a response! I thank each and every one of you who read this and may find it in your hearts to help a loving family during this very difficult time! God bless!
