christmas, CHRISTMAS HELP: I'm asking for help in advance so that It is not as hard on me and my family in the

appleeater1990 started this conversation
I'm asking for help in advance so that It is not as hard on me and my family in the next few coming months. My daughter who is now 3 and my step daughter who is now 10 are not going to be able to have much of a christmas this year and it hurts me every day as we get closer and closer to christmas. If there is anyone out there who is able to help I would greatly apriciate it. I love my girls with all my heart and I cant see them go through another bad christmas. My husband lost his job and it is now just me working part time making min wage.
Please if you can help in any way please email me at

One of the things you teach your chidren just christmas is-start taking them where people don't have christmas, thanks-giving-books to do homework,no food in the house-there are a lot of homeless people out there. Have them start helping thoses who have much less. I know it's hard watching your very own go without, but things have a way of changing when you start seeing things in a new way. One other way is take your children to a hosp were there are kids who are never coming home again.
I do hope things go well for you and your family

I agree with you completely. My Christmas shopping is done and the stocking stuffers come everyday because I coupon, send for freebies and make toys or crafts and clothes for my kids. It costs literally cents for needles, thread and scraps of can teach yourself to make doll or barbie clothes for your girls..stuffed animals even take some of your own clothing and modify them to make a blanket or have enough time between now and Christmas to have a ton of gifts for can also get tons of freebies, body wash, make up, wont be the typical electronics or games that most kids ask for but they won't do without either...

I understand you see 7.25 as a fixed number but it does not have to be so. If you could focus on improving your skills by attending a course so that you can move upwards in your career, then you would not need to ask for help.

Just so you know. I have been trying my hardest to save money but making 7.25 an hour it is just hard for me to be able to save anything with paying the bills buying food and everything else that comes with life. and no my request is not a scam. but thanks for responding to my post. I'm barely making it by now and I know that last minute is a really bad time to try to find help.

good grief, if you have the foresight and planning to ask for **Christmas** gifts in **July**, then you would not have to be asking for money on aidpage - you would have worked hard and saved for a rainy day - unless of course, your request is a scam.
