Re: Who's not Having Christmas Dinner this year? Financially Strapped.
Thank you Poker Face for the kind thoughts. I am praying for a miracle. I am actually back in school getting another degree hoping that will change my employment prospects.

As for right now....Praying that the Landlord will be patient and kind.

Re: Who's not Having Christmas Dinner this year? Financially Strapped.
I LOVE fruitcake. Hey OP I jsut sent you an email. too much of a coward to post it.


Okay fine I will post most of it.

Hi pokerphases,

I am a coward so I sent you an email. Yep strapped for Christmas. don't know if anyone can help. But here is my lame story. I just feel like telling it.

I was running a business for women and had to be named an owner in order to get training etc. I got paid $12.00/ hr IF i got paid. I became a person who ran food drives,clothing drives, health seminars, etc, every year through the business and we would donate tons of food to our local community charity. Other stuff too. A lot of work.

I had employees, so I provided jobs, often at the expense of me not being paid but I could not work 16 hours a day. the whole business was my responsibility, member trainer, health info provider, emotional support provider, entertainer for those who were bored while working out and then had all the business logistics, finances, payroll, data input, computer to keep operating, reports marketing, employee training blah blah blah. Then I got sick. Really sick. I got several auto immune diseases that affect my spine, intestines, skin, joints, and all tendons, especially my spine and tendons. Nobody would take over the job for me to get treatment and reclaim my own health so we had to shut up shop. I was not being paid anyway.

I have been thru tons of medical procedures and have sold anything we could sell, cars, bug out property, eagle scout patches, all of my gold jewelry,all old coins, silver etc. Any thing that would actually sell just to pay the bills. We are still behind on most of our bills and now I cannot take the drugs for my disease because the drugs have affected my lungs. We do not have TV anymore and we have cut wherever we could find a place to cut, but not the internet.. My husband has 2 kids that do not live with us but we pay for their medical becasue they both have xxxxxx disease and would not be able to get much of any help if he did not get them covered. But we do pay for it all right. It is not cheap. But because no agency looks at what we do actually pay for, medical insurance and medical bills, we are not elidgible for any help.
(to you shitheads who think anyone can get help)
Recently we were sued for still owing a small amount of unpaid medical bills. I have been denied disability 2 times and do not have a date with a judge until March. I am not eligible for food stamps or unemployment. I turned 50 this month but we could not celebrate my birthday with my husband because of no money to do so. Not a card, not flowers. Nada.

I got a small turkey in Oct to have for Christmas. I grew my potatoes and my green beans in my garden this year, But since I cannot take any meds for this clump of diseases I got from stress and whatever else causes these weird diseases, I am now in a decent to tons of crippling pain. I actually cannot cook a dinner or even much less bake cookies now because it takes me too long and it is too hard on my body. Besides we are also almost out of sugar and flour. Need to keep it for bread.In a bread machine.

My husband made me a cane out of a shovel handle and a cherry tree branch. We could not afford to buy a decent one. I do not have the money for the tools needed to help me around the house. Of course my husband works all day and spends 3 hours of his day commuting so he is too tired to do house chores as well.We do not own a home, as his ex took his 15 years ago. If I need to vacuum to keep my lungs clear and keep allergies at bay so that my body does not go further into attack mode against me,,,,,,,well to vacuum I have to sit on the floor and scoot. I cant bend over and we can't buy a new vacuum cleaner.

My oldest sister just sent me a hate email for my birthday and she is having all the family over to her house for Christmas. But since I got this surprise hate mail I do not dare show up to her house. Her anger is really to someone else who abused us 30 some years ago, but I guess she has not figured that out. I went to thanksgiving at a family get together and was nearly crippled the next day from the stress of it I guess. So another reason not to show up to christmas dinner.

Anyway, we are strapped and alienated from family this year. It totally sucks.

I ddi not read all 10 pages of your thread because I am too tired from doing things that I can do around the house. But if anyone else who was contacting you and wanting to help ,,,,,well, if I fit your criteria, maybe someone could lend a hand. I have lended a hand to so many people but I am too much of a coward with too much pride to tell anyone I know that i could really use some help. No we cannot even buy new socks this year. No tree, no presents, maybe mac and cheese for dinner. Don't know yet what we will do. But I cannot cook a friggin turkey no matter how small. It does not fit into a crock pot. LOL

Anyway, thanks for listening and thanks for having a kind heart even if you think it is black. LOL. NOT.

How cheap! You are getting a free advertising amongst th0usands of people and in return you are giving a hungry family a paltry 2 pounds of turkey? Cheap ass! Why not double the portion so they all don't have to have a small serving of turkey. Or give out 5 of these meals as you are getting lots of exposure to your website here. How do we now these people will even get the meal and that you are not just a spammer? Green Bean Casserole? Ewwwwww....

It really is a wonderful thing! I saw a spot on the news yesterday about this "secret santa" guy that has a pocket full of hundred dollar bills. He goes into walmart and other stores and looks for people that look sad, depressed and down, and walks up to them and hands them a bill.

They are all so shocked and many break down and start crying. It was so amazing to see that, love is awesome!

We can't afford a traditional meal for Christmas but we will still have an awesome time and a great meal. It's not the food that matters so much as the family. Hotdogs cooked outside will be just fine, just thankful we are all happy and healthy.

Good morning. Last night I processed three diners. Today, I have enough money to process two more. If the generosity of some of the other GLP'ers holds up, we can get more done.

Please be patient with me. I think we have exceeded the threshold and I'm going to have to find other ways to fill requests.

Gotta go figure out how PayPal works. Wish me luck!

diet sweetners NEVER EVER pass these lips. Nor do I alow them for hubby on my watch.

I am a shitty typist. Less than 25 words per minute. That took a long time to type all that out. I did not know how to shorten it.

FWIW

Appolyon.......apology accepted!


If you can type that huge, long letter with all the intricacies you expressed, I think you can pop a turkey breast in the oven, OP might send you one, but its just cutting the wrapper, taking out the gravy packet. turning up the oven to 350 and cooking it for two hours.. its so extremely simple .

Hope you get help and find a remedy for your solution..

Also, I can type because I have a brain. My fingers work sometimes but not all of them. This was all I typed the whole day. Just becasue I can type does not mean I can get things in the oven. Youd don/t read very well appollyon. And your friend may understand this disease but clearly you do not. You also sound like you think I am HEAVT as in OBESE. Keep your judgements. As I stated earlier, I advocate health. Yeah appollyon, cut your effing judgements.

Please know that anyone that has sent me an email or post, I have not forgot about anyone and will address everyone. I'm going between three emails, the gourmet store, the people of need and those that have pledged to help. My fingers are flying.

At this point I have to close any new requests. Mostly, because I don't feel we will be able to cover it. Yet, we are still going to have some very happy people. Would love to meet everyone's needs, but that's just not realistic.

Total of five orders processed.

Anyway, we are strapped and alienated from family this year. It totally sucks.

I ddi not read all 10 pages of your thread because I am too tired from doing things that I can do around the house. But if anyone else who was contacting you and wanting to help ,,,,,well, if I fit your criteria, maybe someone could lend a hand. I have lended a hand to so many people but I am too much of a coward with too much pride to tell anyone I know that i could really use some help. No we cannot even buy new socks this year. No tree, no presents, maybe mac and cheese for dinner. Don't know yet what we will do. But I cannot cook a friggin turkey no matter how small. It does not fit into a crock pot. LOL

Anyway, thanks for listening and thanks for having a kind heart even if you think it is black. LOL. NOT.

We are done. Everything is wrapped up and 7 members are getting meals.

Almost all for financial reasons, but some had some very bad illnesses.

Thank you to the other three members that helped make this happen. Please reference a few earlier posts from me. Without you, I would be broke. LOL

Those of us that participated have receipts and so do most of the recipients. I will be happy to share my receipts with V-Honey to prove we got this going.

For the recipients, your personal information is safe. If you want to drop a line when you receive your gifts, feel free to do so.

Thanks to everyone. The posters, the good hearted, the donor's and everyone in general.

This did turn into a labor of love. I didn't expect this to turn out so well.

Truly wish we could have done more. There are limitations with everything and everyone.

Happy Holidays!

P.S. I have no idea what religion the other donor's are. If they are Christian, great. If they are humanists, just as well. I never asked.

Pokerface sent me an email today or last night and has sent someone very special this. I did write a thank you back of course earlier and this is real and anonymous also if need be.

A gesture that makes people's hearts know there are still decent people amongst us all. hf hf

Very nice of you to help someone after the guilt trip they tried to lay on you along with the woe is me baloney.

God bless you. I mean that.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

Re: Who's not Having Christmas Dinner this year? Financially Strapped.
Debauchery- I'm sorry you feel that way. I worked all day and got home about 8:30 p.m. One of the op's posts said that he felt he missed a few post and to re-post. Well I did and I was trying to make a little joking reply to lighten it up. I am trying to help someone that might lose their home. Her brother has just lost his job so she is the only one with an income. She is an older lady and just has a part time job. There are not many jobs esp. for older people now. I am helping her as much as I can but I have bills too. I have already said I'm planning on buying her a small heater if she still has a house next month. This dinner is not for me. I just thought she deserves a nice Christmas dinner. I feel that my buying her a heater is more important. So shame on you!!

Has she tried churches or any charities in the area?

I know there are a few sites online where you can ask for help and people will donate cash. I will look around for the link and post if I can find it. I've never used it before so I'm not too familiar with it but I've seen it mentioned here a few times. Maybe some knows what I am talking about.

Anyone have a clue?
