Anyone willing to help a family of just adults for Christmas? There is me and my dad and husband. I am just trying to make our Christmas special. Anything will help. We have plenty of food so no need for that.

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.

This year my five daughter's wrote Christmas list for Santa and it saddens me that I cannot buy gifts. My compensation pays all housing bills etc. and the amountleft is for food/gas. Before deploying to Afghanistan in 2003, life was much easier. Now "we can afford to live but we can't afford to enjoy". I wishthere was a way to make my childrens wishcome true.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I work my butt off to take care of my babies, but we still struggle. I have a job and I clean houses, babysit, shovel snow, cut grass, etc. whatever I need to do to make ends meet. This year I've had a major set-back with the father of my children. He was taking care of them when I worked (which worked nicely for all involved-he got his visiting time, kids got to spend time w/him and his family, and I didn't have to pay a babysitter so I could go work). In October, I found out that he was physically abusing our 4 yr old daugher (she had a handprint bruised onto her tiny little face when I went to pick her up from a weekend with him!). When I confronted him about this, he also assaulted me in front of our son (6). The police didn't do a thing, pitiful. DCFS "indicated" him as guilty of child abuse, but the state's attorney wouldn't even file charges. Anyhow, I now am having to pay a babysitter (thankful to have an exceptional young mother to look after my babies when I can't, though) for the time I'm actually at work, and I work nights so I have to pay her to keep them in the daytime sometimes as well so I can get sleep between shifts. Trust me when I say I work for my money. I do as much overtime as possible and I do any odd jobs I can find. I can clean, cook, do childcare-i was a nanny for several years, i bake fabulous desserts and can cater parties, and i am a medical assistant and cna so i can also do homehealth. I just need a bit of assistance this christmas to help my children have the christmas they deserve. I know not being able to see their father anymore has impacted my children, and the last thing they need is to lose hope or their spirit of christmas. We will gladly accept used items, we are not picky and my children know the value of money. We shop thrift stores and hunt for bargains all the time. Even though I'm single and their father does nothing to contribute, the state will not give me any assistance for some reason, even though based on my income and their own guidelines I qualify for it. I will most graciously work off any help you can provide- I have many useful skills. Thanks for reading and thanks for thinking of others this holiday! (P.S.- i can provide police reports to verify the incidents I described, i know there are a ton of scammers out here)

Christmas Help for Low Income Families

Hi, my name is Kayla and I am 17 years old. My parents are currently in the middle of a nasty divorce and my mother is unemployed. My dad was our sole supply of income and has yet to provide my family with any money to live off. My grandparents provide a lot of our food and clothing, they also pay rent for my mom...I have two littler sisters, Kameron (14) and Korrin (12). I also have to baby twin brothers, Corbin and Carson who just turned two. This year I decided to get two jobs around the holiday time. I'm balancing school, work and somewhat of a normal social life that basically no longer exists. This year I want to make sure my little siblings have a special Christmas. My parents are divorcing due to domestic violence in the house and I want to be able to provide something for my siblings that takes away the bad thoughts, even if it is only for a day. I'm working as hard and as much as I can to try and make money and provide for them, but with four to buy for its really hard. I'm not sure if anyone here knows of any places I can go for help or call, but anything would be appreciated. I really really want to make this year something for them to remember, something good. Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide me help.

My husband and I both lost our jobs and are looking for help to buy our daughter Christmas presents for her first Christmas. Please, anything would help, and if you would feel better just getting a gift we do have a Christmas list for her on Target.com

Even diapers and wipes would help, she likes playing in the boxes anyways!
