Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
Personally know someone that is struggling this year?


we have a neighbor that is an employed single mom and she never complains, she just keeps going... her son is a teenager with special needs.

we will help them this season but they will never know it was us.

we'll pay their electric bill... it's easy to go into the office and give the address and last name and tell them you want to pay the bill... pay cash, no paper trail.

gift cards to clothing stores will appear in their mailbox.

gift cards for the grocery store will come in a card with no signature...

many people are too proud to ask for anything and my neighbor would be mortified if she knew help was coming from us... but we see first hand her struggle and we would not want to cause her any shame... but in our world we don't know anyone more worthy of a little relief...

we don't celebrate cmas because it's a vatican scam, but because I try very hard to follow the teachings of Christ I know I can work my own miracles in the life of others. There is no better time than when the pressures of the holiday season coming bearing down on others.

Christmas won't come for us this year. But the bills will be paid.

We have a 16teen yr old and he understands there won't be nothing.

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
If you still are looking for a family I would love some help. I have never had to do anything like this before. I lost my job in oct and can not find another job. I have applied everywhere but I am either overqualified or going to interviews and no luck. It is so frustrating. I have a 3 year old girl. 1 year old boy, 12 year old girl and a 10 year old boy. I am going through a divorce and I have nothing. I went to the county for help and the only thing they gave me was food help and medicaid. I don't understand why since I have no income at all. But I would appreciate any help at all for my kids to have a good holiday. Thank you. You can reach me at email karyn79@rocketmail.com.

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
I POSTED IN GENERAL DISCUSSION ALREADY ALL BY MY LONESOME. YOU KNOW, I WASN'T RAISED TO BEG BUT SOMETIMES PEOPLE NEED HELP. IF YOU HAVE ONE BREADWINNER IN THE HOUSE AND THEY GET LAID OFF FOR A MONTH AND IT TAKES THAT LONG TO EVEN RECEIVE UNEMPLOYMENT, THEN IT'S A LOSE LOSE SITUATION. UNFORTUNATELY, I AM A FULL-TIME STUDENT AND A WATCH OUR STEPSON DURING THE DAY BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE $600 A MONTH FOR DAYCARE. WE ARE 2 MONTHS BEHIND IN RENT COME THE 1ST AND $600 DOLLARS BEHIND IN BILLS. WE COULDN'T THROW A BIG 5TH BIRTHDAY PARTY ON THE 15TH OF NOVEMBER AND WE ARE ON THE BRINK OF HAVING OUR CAR REPOED. IT SUCKS AND IT GETS WORSE. YOU KNOW WHAT I AM EATING FOR THANKSGIVING DINNER TOMORROW? MAC AND CHEES OR WE WILL GO DOWN TO THE SALVATION ARMY. I AM GRATEFUL FOR WHAT I AM AND GLAD WE HAVE ELECTRICITY ON AND INTERNET BUT CREDIT CARDS DON'T LAST FOREVER. I NEED HELP. HERE'S MY EMAIL AND IT'S ALSO MY PAYPAL. I WAS HAPPY TO SEE SUCH CARING INDIVIDUALS ON THIS SITE AND THAT IS HARD TO FIND NOWADAYS. WE WOULD BE FUCKED LITERALLY IF GAS WAS STILL $4.05 A GALLON. EVERYONE BOW YOUR HEADS TOMORROW AND BE GRATEFUL FOR WHAT YOU GOT CAUSE THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE THAT ARE BARELT MAKING IT. I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE WORSE OFF THEN MYSELF. AWW FUCK IT I AM DONE PITYING MYSELF...MAYBE CHRISTMAS PRESENTS WILL FALL OUT OF THE FUCKING SKY!! petteytiffany@yahoo.com

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
I am looking for a family I can help this coming Christmas.

Last year I helped a young woman with 4 kids.
It was more of a blessing to me then I could have imagined.

Last year I asked for donations or gifts from my friends and local businesses. I had a car load.

I urge you to find someone you can help. Go to your local foodbank or all a local womans shelter.
There are plenty who need help.

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
I have always been a go-getter. I have always had faith and been thankful for all that I do have which isn't much but is more compared to other people. I am sick with worry about Christmas. I have no more ideas. I ran out. Before - I could work, now I can't - although I would like to believe I can, I can't.

I have managed to raise 3 daughters and have only 2 at home now. The fathers of these daughters turned out to be abusive and alcoholics and I found it within myself to leave so my daughters would have a better life. I tried to get an education but it seems like everything I try fails. I don't know what to do. I have never felt sorry for myself before and now that I am beginning to, I find that scary.

I am at a loss and I know there are so many people out there who have it much worse than I do. I am going to volunteer at the local Salvation Army and do what I can do but my spirit is so depressed. I find myself wondering is this what life is all about? A constant struggle? Why aren't things changing? I have good in my heart and have never meant to hurt anyone and I know the Lord knows that. What can I do? I am surrounded by people who live bad lifestyles of drugs, alcohol, and all the sicknesses that plague the life. I have managed to keep myself isolated from them for the sake of my little family. It is so difficult to see people do evil and get things so easily and yet I try to do good and constantly struggle.

I have little faith that this will even help but I am desperate as so many are. I wish, for once, that Christmas did not have to be so degrading. Please pray for my family and for all other families that are facing similar circumstances. I know that if He so chooses He will see that my daughters have an enlightening Christmas and that I improve in my health and do not remain in this rut forever. I know I can be cured but I have to deserve it first.

Thank you.

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
Little johnny just may grow up with more
character and integrity than the ones
with new bikes. I've been that broke
child, I've been that broke mom. Buck up.
Does that child know you love them with
all of your heart? Do you think love
comes in a wrapped gift?



Well, little Timmy has also been that broke child. He has been the child who wore the same pair of pants to school day after day, even if they were too small cause Mom couldn't afford new ones. He is also the boy that had to wait for 4 months for a haircut. He is the boy that sits and watches movies with Mom and curls up in bed and tells his secrets.

Love doesn't come wrapped in a gift. It comes from the caring and soul level joy that you feel for one another. The joy you get from looking in the eyes of a 16 year old boy and remembering his face when he was toddler. When you remember that he wanted to marry you when he was 4. When you remember the single little daisy he picked and presented to you so proudly when he was 6.

That is love. We have a lot of that in our house. Hope you do too, it is priceless.

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
very awesome...

one year we were very down and out with money...

my boyfriend had just gotten a new job and his boss eventually learned a little about our situation...

he discussed with his wife and his teenage sons...

they forewent presents for themselves in order to supply my three kids with some christmas presents... it was a really deep spiritual experience...

the wife told me that she really had wanted to embody the true spirit of christmas and was very thankful to me for providing her the opportunity to give with love... made me cry having to say 'you are welcome' when she was the one giving the gifts...

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
that is very cool

the company i now work for does this every year, they are actually very community centered, which is nice

the food banks here in michigan are absolutely swamped with requests, there are so many people hurting right now, thanksgiving is this week and they always need volunteers to help serve food at churches and missions

if you want your life to get better, stop thinking about yourself and help others, it works

money is tight for EVERYONE i know right now, which can make for a stressful holiday season, but it can also make one get creative, a well thought out handwritten letter can mean more to a loved one than anything else in the world

i have been buying small gifts all year as i find things on clearance

Re: I Want To Help A Family This Christmas
OMG..I am sitting here crying my eyes out..How freaking bad..I know what that feels like...My parents were poor and had 3 kids and I had to be the older one in the house to do without Christmas so that my sister and brother could have..I knew by age 9 that Santa was not real...As I sat on the steps looking down at my parents putting presents under the tree knowing that Christmas lost the magic for me...Later in life I have adopted a baby..I live for Christmas, making sure she has always had one..Never want her to feel that sting..My Daughter is Autistic and many treat her like she has the plaque..Really pisses me off..Breaks my heart..Gets hard to make up excuses for people to her all the time as to why the behave the way they do...This Christmas is hard this year..I could not work due to surgery a few weeks ago and one week before that she had surgery on her tummy for what they thought was Cancer..I Thank God it was not..This Christmas is going to be a hard one...We lost our home and our business..We had a place to go until the owner lost thier home..We were homeless in our car for a few months..My daughter did not have a birthday a few months back...And no school clothes..She was lucky to have someone just bless her with shoes...Stuck in a size 4 when her shoes size was an 8...Her toes were curled in them..She also got a few pants to were cause hers were very tight..All she asked Santa for was a DS to replace the one that got broke and a netbook princess one from Toys R Us to do her Starfall on she can not read or write to well yet..I can not afford to do any of that..Not working and healing after surgery here...So yes I am telling you..Just because something may not seem normal to others does not mean it does not understand or have feelings..Oh yes they do..They have to overcome so much more in life then the so called Normal people..My daughter cries a lot from kids making fun of her..Not fitting in she says...My daughter will be going to counseling this Christmas cause her family doctor feels she is in a bad spot right now...And then on top of that her Christmas will not happen for her...I cut her a tree down last night from the woods..So she could at least have that..And I am hurting from it today..Trying not to show my pain..Cause she was at least a little happy last night to have her tree..Please everyone life is not perfect..Do not treat people so cruel...You have no idea what is going on in someone elses life..To judge them..To hurt them..All I wanted was help this year for her Christmas and all the organizations I was referred to are closed and can not help...My heart is breaking for her..And Christmas will be here soon..You can never imagine what it will be like to have to tell your child why Santa may not be coming to your house..Let alone the pain the mother has to live with..So please do not judge others. You have no idea how painful life can be sometimes..I have no idea what I am going to say to her. But I guess I will fiqure that out when the time gets closer..So please everyone who thinks handicap childern are different then normal childern your wrong..They know..They hurt..They feel..

Are you just thinking out loud with this thread?

You're not really soliciting sob stories are you?

While it's nice that you want to help someone, if you're really just teasing needy people or looking for a pat on the back you need to be honest with yourself.

I have no doubt that you know plenty of people within your circle of influence that you could help. Even presidents have had family members on welfare. Start with you family - aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, etc., before you consider strangers.
