GEORGIA: Hello, my name is Jacqueline, I am a single ,disabled mom in Riverdale Ga.with 3 young children 2 of which have special needs which requires a lot of extra expense for special services that insurance doesn’t pay for like renting Ipads for my Autistic son who does his work better using technology. a 5yr.old girl, 8 yr old boy an 9 yr old boy. Their dad has always been a great provider but has within the last 3 months be dislocated from his work. We are usually the ones on the giving end, however, that is not the case at this time. Unfortunately, we didn’t know about the upcoming lay off sooner. Christmas is soon approaching and have been unable to get anything for the kids as of yet.
I am not picky and would appreciate any assistance. What I receive from disability is just enough to make it through the month for our needs with still some to be desired. I must say that i am Grateful to God, that we at least have a roof over our heads and food on the table. If there is someone out there willing to assist us , We’d be truly appreciative! Thanx in advance!

Hello, I am a disabled mother of three from OHIO. I have a daughter who lives in South Bend, Indiana. She is a mother of 4 young children ages 7-3. Who is struggling just to feed her children and who is at the moment living in a home that she was renting that was foreclosed on. She has no vehicle cause all her money goes on just the bills alone leaving nothing for even clothes for my grandchildren. I have a van but with little money I recieve on disability I can’t at the moment afford brakes. And I won’t risked driving it to South Bend and endangering the lives of anyone. All we wanted was for her to come for Christmas for the first time in years. My son has no vehicle and is expecting my 10 grandchild next week. My EX-husband had given his word to her he would come and get her just so they can visit. Yesterday he backed down. It breaks all our hearts knowing this. We have no money to ask anyone otherwise I wouldn’t have embarassed myself. I was actually looking to see if people were able to adopt out of state families for Christmas when I came across this site. I read many stories of families who are in need again. And to the wonderful and charitable families who help. I personally know many, many people who are in need or who help. If anyone know a way for my family to spend this Christmas together, PLEASE let me know. We only have ourselves there are no other family whom we can turn too. Some are as bad off as we are if not worse. Thank you for reading this.

Hello, I am single mom in Savannah, Georgia. I work full time. I am non-smoker, I don’t do drugs and never have been a drinker. I have three beautiful kids. Two are old enough to realize Mom can’t afford Christmas, they are 20 and 13. My other son, 7, cannot for the life of himself understand why Santa skips us every year. I try hard to explain to him without crushing his understanding of Santa, but it is hard. If anyone out there sees this and would be willing to help him, I would be so thankful. As of today, I am behind on rent, my water is scheduled to be cut off in the next two weeks, I don’t have enough gas money to make it home and back to work tomorrow. We have been to a food bank this week for a few groceries, but they say we cannot come back for a month. I am at my wits end but pray daily something will happen to us to change our lives. I know there are many many people out there in our situation and I pray for everyone of them. I ask that you pray for us as well. If you would like to help my little boy, please contact me through Nana Thank you,

Hi! My name is Jodi and I am a single mother of two boys. One will be 5 on Dec 15th and the other will be 4 Jan 9th. Having birthdays so close to Christmas has always been difficult but this year it is impossible. Ever since I had them I have had health issues but this past year has proved to be the worst. I have had several surgeries, went through a period of kidney failure and lost all the feelings in both legs (knees down) for about 8 months. With all of the health problems it’s hard to find a job that will work with me when I am sick. This is the first Christmas/Birthdays that my boys have actually been able to tell me what they want. Before they really didn’t understand so I bought for them depending on what cartoons or DVDs they liked ( bought “Cars” items, footballs, “Shrek”). But, this is the first year they really understand the holiday and are able to pick out and tell you exactly what they want. I do not get any child support from their dad now because he just stopped paying it (and is now about $10,000 behind). He had already promised my youngest child a trampoline and my oldest child certain things….then he calls me a few weeks ago to let me know that he isn’t going to buy them anything for their b’day or Christmas. He has a 8 yr old from a previous marriage and he said that she was older and would know if he didn’t get her the (expensive) items she wanted but that our boys were young and wouldn’t know the difference. He told me I could handle buying all their gifts. He even stopped getting them on his scheduled weekends because he said he needed to save the gas money and food money he would spend while having them. He said he needed to save that money to buy his daughters Christmas. This is the second year in a row for him to do this….except he did buy them a small play car from dollar general last year. I cry myself to sleep at night worried that I will not find a way to get them anything for Christmas or Birthdays. I want them to have a good Christmas but without a miracle I don’t see it happening. I have to provide them shelter, food and clothing before anything. But it breaks my heart to even think they won’t have toys and clothes from “Santa”. My 4 yr old told me one thing he wanted for Christmas was for mommie to get well and stop crying. He also asked me what HE could buy for ME. I really do have sweet children. If you know of any help that is out there PLEASE let me know. THANK YOU

    Hi! My name is Ashley, I live in Lagrange, GA. I came across this site while looking for a place that may help with Christmas. My husband lost his job in august and has just now recently started working at Walmart. I have been on the job hunt for months and have not been able to find anything that will work with the kids school schedule. We have twin girls that are 9 I have not been able to buy them anything and it will be a while before we are caught up on bills. I missed the sign up at salvation army. I would be MORE than thankful if I could find a program or someone to help me. I have NEVER had to ask for help before so I just dont know what to do or where to go from here. If someone is able to help it would mean the WORLD to me!! Thank you all and God Bless!

  3. Lynette P

    Hi. My name is Lynette. Although I have two boys (Carter 3, Vincent 2) in need of a good Christmas, I would like to nominate the deserving Patterson Family. My father is an awesome farther husband and grandfather. He is a hard worker who wants nothing more than to be able to take care of his wife (took care of him & their 11 children), children and grandchildren. After I was unemployed for about 2 years and could no longer handle things on my own, my parents took my boys and I in. That’s what parents are for right?

    A few years ago my dad was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis. August of 2014, he was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor. The following month he had surgery to remove that tumor. He survived and still recovering, missed a lot of days from work. Just this past July he endured 4 major seizures and he still has been unable to return to work.

    I am grateful to God for letting my father live which is the best gift that I could ask for (the gift of life)! I recently gained employment and I’ve been helping him out as much as I could. I just wish I could do more by giving them a great Christmas. So, I’m not worried about me and my boys. They have a few things. I would love to see a brighter Christmas for my dad, my mom and my three younger siblings it’s been about 5 years since they had one due to my father’s medical issues. The Bible says, in all things give thanks. So even if they are not chosen, I thank you anyway for offering this opportunity and for considering them.
    Much love & be blessed!!!
