christmas assistance, Holiday help: We all go through times of stress and need someone we can look up to for

We all go through times of stress and need someone we can look up to for relief. It can be a best friends inspirational words, music, or most importantly, God. No matter what the circumstance we can always rest in the fact that God will always be faithful.

I and my family are struggling like a lot ppl are right now--- I'm trying my hardest to do right and keep right like I think I am.. I am finishing up school, I am conquering major health issues and my kids are happy, we do have a roof over our heads and even though food is minimum I'm doing the best I can for them

I have come here looking for answers or help actually ANYTHING but I found I can do this-- I can make it, I've come this far in my life to WANT/ FEEL LIKE giving up now... I thank the LORD everyday just for giving me a beautiful day even when I feel like the world is weighing me down

I may NOT have a big spread for Christmas but I'm living-- I'm here-- I'm alive and I have my kids whole heartedly so I say it proudly THANK YOU LORD JESUS FOR GIVING ME THIS DAY THANK YOU... AMEN

CHRISTMAS HELP, christmas assistance: I need help DEPERATELY--- Its 12/7/14, When I started thinking about

I need help DEPERATELY--- Its 12/7/14, When I started thinking about writing this.. I need financial assistance, I have kids and I am a fulltime student who does NOT receive public assistance I just got cut off right before Thanksgiving and with Christmas just around the corner I do NOT have this kind of money at all--- I barely make it month to month and I have called 211 looking for ANY TYPE of ASSISTANCE and to no avail have I found ANYTHING--I'm very STRESSED and do nothing but be depressed and cry, I don't tell my children what is happening right now cause this is an adult worry... UGH... PLEASE SOMEONE.. ANYONE... If you can HELP in anyway: financial or information, I appreciate anything right now... PLEASE I am asking that you contact me to let me know either way if you can assist me. IF you need or want a list of what they would like, I can provide them. My email is INCLUDED HERE so please we are struggling financially we just can't do it my daughter has found a job but has yet to start even trying to help when she can-- I have also started to look but don't know where I will fit it in, but the 2 older ones they both WANT to HELP, I DO UNDERSTAND that the financial situations of our economy is making employment hard to find and get, but we are trying. I used to only get $236 a month from food assistance and my disability goes to both rent and bills so I'm broke even by the time I get what I get each month. I am grateful but I know it is NOT enough-- I really do need the help, I am currently working on my education and hoping that my new year 2015 has something waiting for me to better my life cause I'm jumping in head first at the opportunity to do it. I do appreciate any and all help that I am able to receive.

I'm going to change my future.. I do not want to have this every end of the year to me-- I always say this and darn it what else is there for me to do when I'm working on it.... What am I doing wrong to have this happen to me?? Uuugh-- reeeeally...

Somebody PLEASE HELP ME, help in time of need: I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I

I have learned a lot about myself in the last year or so. I learned that even though life is not always full of what you want, it does not always mean you should quit. I think that my will power for issues surrounding my life have definitely been put into perspective. Once I knew I set my mind to further myself educationally, personally and in a big life changing way, there is just no stopping me from achieving that goal. If I fail than I will just have to try, try, and try again.
On the surface I think I am like most young and modern American women: I take school seriously, I have dreams and goals for the future that I am determined to make happen, and I don’t expect anyone to do the hard work for me. I have devoted my life both to working to better myself and to improving civilization as a whole. Throughout the rest of my life, I hope to continue in this same manner of unselfish work. Sometimes a task can seem monumental when you try to visualize the entire thing, but if you break it down into smaller goals suddenly it can become manageable. When I first started to consider going to college so that I could make a better life for my family and myself, I thought it was going to be almost impossible.
I have always had a clear idea of what I wanted to become in my future. I have always been excited about the medical field, diabetes particularly, and the medical office is the area which interests me most.
I really do appreciate you taking the time to read about myself. I understand also that you have lots of requests that come your way throughout the year not just during the holidays. I am working on myself to make the best of my years to come and I really believe that my new year 2014/15 has something great waiting for me to keep me financially healthy. I will give back without question because I am one of the many out there that have fallen on trying times and looking for someone to just lend a helping hand. I am thankful for any kind of assistance and wish you and yours the best and greatest of faith, strength and love.
RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT-- I am in a very depressed, my anxiety is over the top and just DO NOT feel like me... I don't know what to do-- I have a 45 min. session talking to a therapist- which right now doesn't seem to help me.. I was approved for the gym and I been going but its NOT WORKING.. I went to see my dr. yesterday and still NO GOOD NEWS
I feel there is NO HOPE FOR ME and I don't know what to do, my life is on PAUSE or something its STUCK thought and felt like I was going to be ahead but in reality.. I'm just barely gliding by on tippy toes

MaaaaaaaaN.. what?? what is it?? what did I miss?? what am I missing?? where or what is it that I'm not getting?? UuuuGH, every time I get lost in my thoughts over these questions and NO ANSWERS to suffice what I feel...

Soooooo NOW: its from inside to GIVE UP.. OK- I GIVE UP--- I JUST GIVE UP.......... I won't ever be ahead I won't ever finish school, I won't even get to be healthy enough to even enjoy my life....... Uuuugh

CHRISTMAS HELP, christmas assistance: I need help for Christmas?I contacted my local salvation army food

I need help for Christmas?I contacted my local salvation army food pantries with no luck in help.They all state,to recieve any help you must apply by Dec 18th 2013.
I tried finding online sites for help but,seems they all give the option to donate but,no option to ask for help.Seems they all accept donations but,none explains how to recieve donations for help.All the sites won't let you give out your contact information to recieve help.How can one help another without any contact information to help them is beyond me.A person a can post on a site all day long "I need help for Christmas?"but,without giving a word of contact.No help will be given to that person in need.What can I do?How can anyone help a person in need without any type of contact information?
I'm not a greedy person to ask for sums of money.I careless about my self.I don't want a thing for Christmas other then seeing my wife & kids have a Christmas.As long as they are happy I'm fine.If I can't ask for money for my family?Can I ask for gifts instead?People feel more safe giving gift then money and I'm not greedy.I can really use the help?If you can mail (122) a gift (Warsaw) to my (St) family would help us in a big way to have a Christmas.I (Laporte,Indiana 46350) Godbless you all and a Merry Christmas and prayers to you all.

christmas, CHRISTMAS HELP: I was wondering if there is any possible way anyone would help me provide any

I was wondering if there is any possible way anyone would help me provide any christmas gifts for my 15 month old son. My husband and I have experienced some situations beyond our control dealing with work and pay.We are struggling to pay our bills, we had to use most of our bill money to get fuel oil delivered so we can have heat. We ran out last month and could not come up with the money to have any delivered. We live in Minnesota. Heat is not optional. It just feels like the mountain is caving in on us, and I feel like a failure. Its not how I envisioned Christmas for our son. This is very humbling to ask for help. Please remember I'm not asking for me or my husband. This is for my son.

CHRISTMAS HELP, christmas assistance: I am a single mother of 3, 14yr old son (whom I just recently got

I am a single mother of 3, 14yr old son (whom I just recently got custody back from his father cuz his father became addicted to drugs) my oldest daughter is 11 and we have been on our own for 7 yrs due to her father dying from cancer in 2007. I met a man whom I thought was wonderful and treated me so well and we had a child she is 4 months old now. In the past few months he has started being very hateful towards me and i have recently learned that he has cheated on me with numerous women, I want to tell him to leave but since I am a stay at home mom I cant afford for him to leave. He does not know that I know about his infidelity and I am afraid to bring it up because I am afraid I will end up homeless with 3 kids. I need help for Christmas at least so my children can have a decent Christmas. We would even do a dollar store Christmas if I could. My kids wouldn't care as long as something was under the tree. Any help would be greatly appreciated so I can at least get my dignity back. My fiance will not give me any money for Christmas cuz he thinks his wheels on his car and a paint job are more important and obviously cuz 2 out of 3 of my children are not his. Please help if possible. Thank you and God bless you

Christmas help, Christmas assistance: I used to be the one helping others in need, back when I was blessed

I used to be the one helping others in need, back when I was blessed with good fortune ...But I chose to leave the abusive situation I had suffered in for so long, and now I know what it is like to live life in need... My two beautiful children and I have found ourselves alone (and almost broke) in the month of Christmas...my kids should not have to suffer for my choices, for my mistakes...but 2013 will be the first year they wake up to nothing under the tree...in my mind it is better they wake up to a roof over their head and food on the table...but their young minds wont see it that way, they will see it as Santa didnt leave them anything, because THEy were bad.....and maybe that is why mommy had to move us away...Kids dont understand! If anyone has advice on how to help give my wonderful kids the Christmas they deserve please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
