I am so trying not to cry, but I am losing the battle. It has been very rough for us. This generosity has me floored. Thank you is not enough for what this means to me.
My old 1983 Buick needs a bit of work. It has been neglected because of our financial difficulties. My emergency brake cable that fell off a few months ago, now will be replaced. I will get a couple of snow tires for the rear end of that old Buick, to get me through the winter.
Thank you, my friends, for nominating me, and for caring so much about me, a person who you do not know IN PERSON, but only through the internet.
God Bless each and every one of you !!!hfhfhf

Re: Let's do 3 more $333.33 Christmas gifts-please tell me your story or nominate others as I have not kept track of everyone
I'll keep my case nice and short since many on this thread are just as needy.

I'm currently 28 and have worked full time most my life doing factory/assembly and warehouse work. Sadly most of the jobs I land are through temp agencies that use their employees for one year or two before layoffs happen. I was frustrated to the point of suicide after i lost my last job for Phillips electronics, making respiratory equipment. I have always worked hard grueling over not just long intensive shifts, but afterwards working a 2nd job on the weekend just to pay the bills, nothing else.

Last year Layoffs again happened, so i fought with hopelessness and depression yet again. I was still young, I told myself it didn't have to be like this for the rest of my life. So i did what i thought I could never afford to do in hopes of creating some small hope in my future, I signed up for school. Trade school for low voltage technology. One year, 40 hours a week at the cost of 27,000 dollars. Not a large amount for some people but you also need to understand that I have little outside support. I have come to enjoy the FUCK out of school, and don't stop working even when class ends. I stay after or go to the library to learn everything i can about the theory, and currently have a 4.0 GPA with just three weeks left before i graduate and hopefully can become an apprentice.

I am really focused on solar panel installation, and would like to get a job in that field not because it pays well ( which it doesn't compared to say a big company in fire alarm installation) but because when i die I would like to look back and say that maybe i did a little something for the planet as well as others. I want to die knowing I gave a little back to the world even if they can't see that. I want to die knowing at least I TRIED.

With 333 dollars I wouldn't pay a bill, or rent, or use it for invasive surgery that would save my life. I would use it to buy an engagement ring for my girlfriend. She has been with me for 8 years and we are madly in love. When people question why we aren't married we always answer that we are always too broke. I promise to you Trin, I would buy a ring in a heartbeat with that money and marry her the next week even if we had to do it a City Hall.

She is the best thing to happen to my and deserves to be someones loving and faithful partner for eternity. It's time for the next chapter in my life after I graduate. For the first time in a long time I don't want the world to end, I don't want some dramatic revolution. I want a wife, that good job around the corner ( hopefully career), I want a family.



Thanks for listening and God bless you all on GLP ( yes even you shills )!!! Merry Christmas GLP, I'm going to cuddle and watch a Gremlins with the only person I've ever truly loved like a goddess.

Ok, here is my story. I've been sitting for an hour trying to decide if I should post this but here it goes.

I use to own a small business but my father got sick, had a stroke and then we also found out he has cancer. He was living in another state than me.
I closed my business and took a little money I saved to by a raggedy fixer-upper near my father.

I just got married in June, and my spouse and I live in the house I bought for next to nothing.

Problem is we don't have the money to fix the house. We don't have heat and we use a large plastic tarp to try and keep some of the cold air out. Our bathroom doesn't have a sink or a real floor. Also we do not have a kitchen. And to make matters worse, part of the roof started blowing off due to hurricane Sandy.

I just got some really old kerosene heaters from a neighbor because our electric bill is so high from running some space heaters to keep warm. Just got the shut off notice.

Even though all of that is really dim, the real problem we are having right now is that our house tax bill is due by monday (the end of the year). We don't won't to loose the little piece of house we have.
We are young and we are trying to do the right thing, but the cold is really taking a toll on us.

If you think we are worthy Brief than we would truly truly appreciate your help.hf

FYI most states split the property taxes in half. First half not delinquent till April or May, second half in the fall. Did you pay cash for the house, can't get home loans on crappy fixer uppers, at least not around here.

I feel for you, cold time of the year. Another trick to stay warm is put a tent up INSIDE of your house. Not ideal but will keep you a bit warmer. Water pipes tend not to freeze until low teens or single digit weather, I know that from personal experience. I hope the info helps you.

Yes, I bought the house cash. It was a foreclosure. Not sure about split taxes as this is my first house. We got a letter saying that if we didn't pay then the matter would be forwarded to another place. Not sure where the other place is but I know that has to be bad....Putting a ten in the house is not really ideal, the house has 2 floors. We finished one room (the one we sleep in) and we put up insulation, but there are so many cracks and holes where the cold air can still get it.
And you're right before we can get a home loan it at least has to be functioning better. Then we could probably get one to finish it. Right now half of every paycheck goes into fixing on this house. But old man winter has no mercy.

We put an old electric stove in the basement just in case the temps really get down where we have to worry about pipes freezing. But again the electric bills are getting out of control.

Thanks so much for the support hf

Re: Let's do 3 more $333.33 Christmas gifts-please tell me your story or nominate others as I have not kept track of everyone
Hi, I would like to share my story.

I've recently moved to the U.S, about 4 months and half since I've been here. I am a U.S citizen but my parents are from South America, and they are not U.S citizens, they moved back a while ago and since I was a kid in middle school when they did that, I had to go back with them, I lived for about 12 years in South America.

They got divorced and I went living with my mother, we had several economical issues since my dad got a new wife and he no longer spoke to us, it's been pretty complicated ever since... I got job at a call center for Sprint USA, they payed me over 2.50 cents an hour to take customer service phone calls in English, to US customers (they exploit us) and little by little I saved money in order to come back to the U.S

I had finally saved 2000 dollars during years of horrible work for the plane ticket, a car and the first month of rent... so I left and came to the U.S, since I'm a citizen I never had to worry about visas or anything like that, and learned English when little so it wasn't an issue.

Nevertheless I have no family here, and finding a job hasn't been that easy... the car I bought was not a nice car (1991 Honda civic) and it has been giving me many problems, I've spend over 700 dollars so it runs ok.. I've got two part time jobs that barely get me through.. it is very hard to find a full time job, they just hire part timers at 8 dollars an hours..... I've worked hard lately because of the Christmas season...

About a week ago I had to change my tires... it was 350 dollars and that was pretty much the money I had saved to send some Christmas money to my mother.. such a bummer

Last Friday I Worked from 7:30 am to 4:30 Pm at best buy and from 5:30 Pm til 2Am closing delivering pizzas... I've been doing that this last week a lot, just not until 2:00 am, just until 11pm..

Saturday I had to be there at best buy again at 7:30 am... but I was very exhausted from last night and all the other 16 or so daily shifts I've had the days before...


I try to be very punctual, and I didn't want to be late.... so I had to speed... a cop saw and pulled me over... he has given me two tickets for unsafe lane changing and +15 over the limit... I've only had bad luck.... all this time I've worked hard is going to be to pay that ticket...

Since Christmas season is over, they cut off my hours from 40 a week to to at Best Buy... and I don't know how I'm gonna make it

I am really having a very hard time, 21 years old, barely surviving, spending Christmas by my own, having failed my mother, owing money, without having been able to buy myself any clothing in years, with cold and no money to buy sweaters..

trapped in a bad economy, where nobody can offer a good job...

I came to America because I am an American and I believe in the American dream and believed this was the land of opportunity...but I guess things have changed since the old 2000 when I left...

Guess I'll toss my hat in the ring. I'm posting from my husband's account as he wanted me to make post.

In mid-October, he was diagnosed with cancer. We have chosen to treat it naturally as opposed to going the typical cut and burn routine. This has put an incredible financial burden on us, as medicaid (which he hasn't even qualified for yet - stupid bureaucrats and their millions miles of paperwork and red tape) won't pay for herbs. In addition to those added expenses, he's had to cut back his hours at work because the cancer is in his tongue and he has a really hard time talking. Our best friend has moved over 400 miles to come stay with us and help us out with all of the household stuff (of which there is a fuckton, with all of the tea and various other herbal extracts having to be made often). We've been herbalists for over 10 years, so at least the idea of supplements and the chemistry of extraction is nothing new to us.

From my husband:
Having said all of that, everything that we're doing costs money which we seem to have increasingly less of. I am very serious that when I cure this disease on my own that I will use what I've learned to help anyone else that I can. So, in a way, by giving us some of that money, you're helping our battle against cancer and not the battle of the pharmaceutical companies to come up with expensive "treatments" while ignoring the cures growing right in front of us.

I have never asked for anything in my life...I'm not asking now.
I have no job,my car needs work,I have no husband. I've worked hard all my life,I'm 60 now.
I would like some moisturizer for my face,some body lotion. Some razors to shave my legs ( though why,I have no idea why).
I would like to have a cup of International Coffee again...maybe Mocha...been a very long time.
maybe go to the Salvation Army and get a new blouse or a pair of shorts.
I don't know. I'm just tired.

Re: Let's do 3 more $333.33 Christmas gifts-please tell me your story or nominate others as I have not kept track of everyone
Thank you so much for giving us a second chance.

I am a single mother of a disabled son. He is diagnosed with autism, szitzophrenia, fetal alcohol syndrome, retinal degeneration, and seizure disorder. He requires 24/7 care and support with all of his functional needs. I have provided this level of care for him his entire life. He is a beautiful child who will always be a child emotionally. He has the most giving and loving way about him.

I lost my job when he turned 18 because I exausted all avenues for help to stay with him while I was at work. The only other alternative is to give up and place him in a mental hospital, which I would rather die than to do.

Since I lost my job, finances are tight. We get very little help from social services and disability. We live in Colorado and our home is not very energy efficient. We dont use our gas in the summer, but in the winter the bill is almost $200 a month. We get help from social services for some of the cost ($100 mo), but the balance is very difficult to come by with such a tight budget ($740 mo).

There is more, so much more that I can say that we need. He requires a special vehicle to ride in so I have to have a larger vehicle available for his doctor appointments. The gas is so costly! My washer, water heater, stove, and dishwasher went out over the summer during an electrical storm while we were in the hospital overnight. The insurance refuses to help. Through others generosity I have been able to replace the washer and stove, but my water heater leaks constantly and my dishwasher wont even turn on.

As he requires assistance all through the day and night, and I am the only person providing that care, it is very difficult to sleep most of the time because I have to get up every hour and check on him. His occupational therapist had suggested that he can be monitored at night with a camera that would let me know if he is moving around. The cost of the camera system is around $500, but oh I cant imagine how it would feel to sleep through the night again sfter doing this for almost 20 years.

I know that our story is insignificant to most people. We are but two people in a vast country of people in need, and I know if I would just be a little more selfish and give him to the state, I would be just fine financially. I am well educated with 3 degrees and a mirade of employment choices if I could work again. But, I just cant. I look at my son and I remember what we came through and what we both have sacraficed to be who and where we are today.

I have high hopes for my son. Someday I hope to help him qualify for a group home environment. With his developmental disability and his mental health disability he currently doesnt qualify for either placement because of his wandering and inappropriate hugging issues. I know that I couldnt have done all of this for nothing. I know my son will grow and mature someday, and I hope to be able to keep us together until that time comes.

Even if we dont qualify for the help being offered, I hope that I have shed some light on the difficulties of parents with disabled children, especially the primary custodians. Can you imagine a life where there is no freedom. I dont get to choose when to shower, when to eat, when to sleep, when to go to the store, or even when to go to the bathroom. There is no sitting down in front of the TV for me. I dont date, no one can visit in my home and not be continually hugged by my son. I struggle to keep pets safe, I dont get holidays, vacations, or even sick leave. When I am sick I have to drag myself because there is no one else to help. I have done this for almost 20 years. You could drown in a pool of tears I have cried because of our situation. I want so desperately to live my life, but how can a parent turn their back on their own child when he cant take care of himself?

After they turn 18 the choice for the parent is to place them in care, or find another way. It is so incredibly sad home many young people are just tossed into the system because their parent could no longer care for them and have any type of a life. I was the lucky parent because I had some savings in place when our house of cards fell, but there are so many more out there that have no other choice but to give up the child they have dedicated decades of their lives to.

Thank you for considering us as a potential candidate for your generosity.

TO GLP...

I am absolutely, positively, without a doubt, shocked and awed! Support, free membership, generous gift to pay the heating bill for the rest of the season... how does a person express how it feels to be embraced by the kindness of strangers? There are no words capable of going to the depth of my gratitude. But alas, words are all I have to give, and I give them with all my heart has to give.

Thank you GLP, thank you today, tomorrow and forever for helping me and embracing me with kindness and sincere thoughts, gifts, and virtual hugs and kisses. Yesterday I may have been defeated... but today I stand proud in the glow of humanity. It has been so long since I have felt this level of humbleness.

SOOOOO I totally screwed up and ended up making my own thread. *sigh* This is a second post, so sorry if you've already come across it!:

Hi! Ok, so this is my second time posting in as many years :) I read through a ton of posts from people with stories that make my problems look like zilch!

My best friend and I met in high school, became instant friends. We made plans to go to Bellin School of Nursing, unfortunately Ang also had cystic fibrosis and passed away before we had a chance to go. For years I didn't want to follow "our" dream, thinking that I couldn't do what WE set out to do since she wasn't by my side. I had a real hard time dealing with her death, a lot of mental health issues that kept me in and out of psych wards...finally things started looking up. I realized that while it was our dream, that I should at the very least honor her memory with becoming a nurse.....long story short, for the last 4 years I've been busting my butt at school. I attend a college up north in Michigan (U.P.), maintain a 3.65 GPA (which considering I NEVER made the honor roll-even in elementary school-is a huge deal for me!), and will apply to the nursing program this upcoming semester! I applied for all the grants which cover most of the tuition, but am having trouble coming up with the book money-Thought I'd put my story out there anyway, if anyone can help it would really help....My nursing book bill (according to my school's website) comes out to $293.95.

I am also taking a course on the Holocaust- I can't really say I believe in reincarnation, but if there was a possibility, there must have been some part of me that was there and is totally obsessed with learning as much as I can. This has nothing to do with my nursing courses, so I don't want to ask for help with that- but there may be more books here that some of you might have sitting on your bookshelf and never read :)

Sorry for the long post- it's always said that if you wish for something that you be specific about it cheer

Thank you for at least hearing me out! I hardly ever log in (since I don't write anything), but I am here multiple times a day lurking in the background- the support here is unbelievable! And no, this isn't a last parting attempt- I honestly don't think anything will come of this post, but I genuinely want to thank everyone here for the support you've all unknowingly provided for me through the last few years!!hf

Re: Let's do 3 more $333.33 Christmas gifts-please tell me your story or nominate others as I have not kept track of everyone
Gosh so many things have happened to me and to the family over the past year. But I have never asked anyone for anything. I have had 2 heart attacks in the past year, my last one was on August 25th of this year, and it happened to be on his birthday. Nothing at all like giving your son a heart attack for a gift.

So this Christmas I asked for a special gift the same one as last year. It was pointless, I know because I posted it last year on 2 hands and didn't even get a reply. So I posted it again this year and once again no reply. It's sad that so many folks will give from their wallet but not from their hearts. All I asked for was for someone to spend time with like a mom figure, and someone that my kids could call Grandma is that to much to ask for? I guess it was since no one could fulfill the wish. Oh well I guess I will go motherless for the rest of my life and my kids grand parentless.

This year has been the worst year ever for us. Sure we finally got the property paid off, and I was so excited about that, then my heart attack came. The stress my neighbors put me under is just way to much so I stay inside almost 24 hours a day 7 days a week just so I don't get stressed. In November my husband was robbed at gunpoint while he was paying bills. We lost the bill money, and almost lost him. The police as usual did nothing. So we were up the creek without a paddle for 2 weeks, then finally we got payed for a roof he did and we got to pay the bills. And now once again its that time of the year where we hardly ever get roofs to do.

Then 2 weeks ago my mother in law in Mexico had a heart attack, so now we are having to pay her hospital bills, then we got the worst news possible while she was in the hospital they found out that she has cancer and its terminal.

But neither hubby or I ever plan on going to Mexico to be with his mom. It will be to hard on us, and with me being sick, and my daughter being sick, we can't go. His mom refuses to leave and to come here even though she is an American, she wants to die and be buried next to her husband in Mexico, so its a hard time for us.

And all I still want is a mom, that I can sit down with and get a big hug from when life gets me down like it has lately. Is that to much to ask for?

I'm not sure I'm even older than you but I am a mom and I'd gladly be your "mom" when you need someone to talk to. You can reach me at makelittleoneshappy at gmail dot com. Hang in there!
 Quoting: MartianPrincess


Thanks a bunch. I just get so tired of posting it over and over again at 2 hands and people go past it, and help those that need stuff that costs money. I help people out yearly through 2 hands, and at least expected 1 reply but never a single one. I cried myself to sleep last Christmas, this Christmas, I just blew through it, and tried not to think about it.
 Quoting: pmb1


I wish I could be your mom and tell you how proud I am of the way you are handling all the things in your world, and to tell you that although its tough now... hang in their baby... it will get better.

I have never asked for anything in my life...I'm not asking now.
I have no job,my car needs work,I have no husband. I've worked hard all my life,I'm 60 now.
I would like some moisturizer for my face,some body lotion. Some razors to shave my legs ( though why,I have no idea why).
I would like to have a cup of International Coffee again...maybe Mocha...been a very long time.
maybe go to the Salvation Army and get a new blouse or a pair of shorts.
I don't know. I'm just tired.

Your post touched me. So many of us can relate to being tired. Just worn out.

There's a member here (Flavapor) who makes totally awesome moisturizers and lotions. Can't speak highly enough of them.

I want you to go to her website and choose what you want. I've pm'd her and she's been gracious enough to let me make arrangements to take care of the bill. She won't be able to ship until after the first of the year, but that's not long, and even if it were, it's worth the wait. The website is

www.gaianaturalsskincare.com

Make sure you also pick up some of the hand and foot cream. You'll love it.

If you make a throwaway email address and post it, I'll get in contact so we can get your razors, coffee, and clothes.

Hang in there...and know people care.
