CHRISTMAS HELP, christmas help available: Hello, I'm a young woman who needs some help for the holidays this

Hello,
I'm a young woman who needs some help for the holidays this season. I moved to California on hopes of having a better life, but there hasn't been much luck. My son who is turning ten soon lives in New Mexico and I need help getting him here for the holidays. It breaks my heart that I've been doing everything I can, but its just still not enough and I don't want to let him down. If anyone can help me, please reply. Thanks so much!

Holiday help, CHRISTMAS HELP: I am a single mother of an amazing 9 year old with cystic fibrosis and autism


I am a single mother of an amazing 9 year old with cystic fibrosis and autism and a beautiful 13 year old daughter. I am a full time hairdresser. My son has a chronic illness , cystic fibrosis and has been to Children's hospital and numerous specialists lately.He has three surgeries in January for his sinuses, bronchioscope, and endoscopy. His weeks have been full of tests, new meds,and staying awake at school.My daughter has taken a backseat at times growing up as a special needs sister. She's amazing and deserves more than I can give this year. My time at work has been greatly cut taking care of my son. I'm scraping for bills and rent. What I really hope to reach out for is help to give them some things to open. I should've reached out earlier as we are so close to Christmas, but I had been trying to make it happen alone and do far,I can't buy gifts, only bills and meds. So with pride aside and a thankful heart,I thank you kindly for any help offered. http://t-j139.aidpage.com...

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

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.
