I myself have two young Boys and struggle to do much but do have some clothes the boys no longer fit into; also toys and stuffed animals along with blankets if in need of any of these things
I am starting to get the fact that this may be a lost hope. I should have spoke up earlier, but I never imagined this would happen. I read of all the people who are in need and my heart weeps. I am so sad for all of us! I've always tried my level best to stay upbeat and positive, I know without question that God is looking out for me and my family, there are just to many times that he has rescued me when I thought all hope was gone. So, I'm going to make a very big decision right now....
I've thought long and hard about this all night last night and this is where I stand. I am going to pull myself out of the Christmas wish listing here. I believe in my heart, without question or hesitation, that if I am to receive help from an angel here, it will happen somehow, some way. I am leaving my phone number and if there is someone who wants to be my angel then I trust totally they will call. I am not better than or different than any of these other families and I have to let fate take its course here. (I've been making myself crazy checking for 1-1's every 10 minutes for what feels like forever). I believe and I trust in God, and whatever lesson I am to receive from this holiday I am prepared for. But I also still believe in Santa and the Christmas miracle, so we'll see what happens....I am at peace with my decision and I will keep all the other families in my thoughts and prayers. And I will keep the angels here who work so hard in my prayers too, thank you for all you tried to do for my family. Thank you atsmail for finding it within your heart to send me a 20 dollar gift certificate in my email, you are very kind and I will not forget you or your generosity!
Otherwise, merry Christmas to each and every one of you!!! (((Hugs)))
I never did find a 1-1 from you :(

Hello, if anyone needs help with food, my family and I would be more than glad to share our Christmas dinner. Northeast Texas.
Hi everyone. I have never asked for help, but have never been so down. I got laid off from my job 2 weeks ago from the irs and have nowhere to turn. I have 2 kids that are gonna be heartbroken soon. My daughter turns 7 on jan 4th so that only complicates things. If you could find it in your heart it would mean the world to me..... I have gone and sat at temp agencies for a week for hours and still jo job. My bills are stacking and my heart couldn't possibly ache anymore. I know its last minute but if could find it in ur heart we would be so thankful.... my son whose 3 is eady to please loves action figures. He is size 3t. My 6 year old daughter loves babies, monster high, girlie things. .. she's a 7/8. This was worth a shot but thanks for your time...
Hi am looking to see if I could get help for Christmas I know its late

Over to the right it says menu click and go to one to one you can speak directly to those u wish to help instead of everyone rushing you at once
First time I have ever tryed to ask for help and I posted this morning
Hey scindy try 1-1 who you Wld like to help or ur going to have plenty in need here lol godbless
I know that it is probably to late to receive any help for Christmas this year, but I still needed to put myself out there. You see, I'm very very sad. I found this website and my heart was very hopeful. I thought I had found the angel I prayed for to help my beautiful children to have the holiday the deserve. My hopes really picked up when I made contact with a person who said they would help my family! I felt such peace and happiness, I was thrilled to think that the worrying was over!! They asked all the questions you'd think they would - sizes, ages, requests the kids made, and what I was hoping to provide for them. Again, total relief, such a beautiful feeling....
Unfortunately however, that was very shortly lived. My messages have gone unanswered at this point, and at the last minute I was informed that they would not be helping. Well, I was never told that per say, more like read between the lines your on your own and then total silence from them. Well, that's great and all, except since my accident my kids know how stressed holidays and birthdays can make me. I told them not to worry because mommy met an angel who would help our family have a great holiday...now, I have to figure out how to take that away and let them know that there won't be a holiday after all. The last thing my "angel" asked was if I was going to be able to give my kids anything at all, to which I answered that I had received a 44 dollar refund from my doctors office and that out of that I would be figuring out how to try and get them both something small and make Christmas dinner as well. I guess she felt that would be enough. I just wish I knew where she shopped because I don't know how to make that stretch like that.
Oh well, I just wanted to say thank you to those who do keep their word and help the families they promise to help. I still believe in miracles and I still believe in the good in people, I just wish in the future that people keep their word and follow through because when you offer to help a family that's what you are doing,...there really is a family of real people you are letting down if you don't. And silence isn't really the best answer to someone who has tried their very best to help anyway they could.
Merry Christmas to everyone, I hope your holiday is special and full of love this year <3
