Hello,my name is Patricia Watts I am writing to you because we have been having a very bad year. First, I lost my mom on November 27, 2005. Then, we were evicted from our home becuase the landlord wanted to sell the home. Now we are six people living in a 2 bedroom house. We had money save to move but it was stolen. My main concern is my niece who is 10 years old. I do not have money to buy her presents for christmas. Can anyone please help me get her something for christmas? Thank you. Please email me.

It has been a rough year a good friend of mine keeps having strokes so I took guardianship of her girls and have 3 children of my own then I found out that the tumor in my head was getting larger( on the pituitary gland) causing bad headaches and vision problems. I am unable to buy any gifts this year due to lack of money, and this is gonna break my heart my 10 year old daughter still beieves in santa and I am going to have to tell her that he is not real, because they are not going to have any gift to open on Christmas morning.

Wow, tears just started flowing here. I'm too a single Mom of two boys. The older one is a bit understanding of our situation, the youngest is at the age where he's teetering on believing in Santa or not. He'll learn it by next Monday. I can't offer anything, for I am looking myself. Between lose of job of 10 years, got another job just to be told I wasn't working out (I think because I needed a day off to stay with sick son), went to EBaying and PayPal froze my account after I started bringing in money. But I am offering prayers for us who really need some help. God Bless us all!

Hello, everyone. I stumbled upon this page because I am in desperate need of help. I don't know what else to do. I don't usually ask for help. I'm always the one giving help in anyway I can. But, I come here today because Christmas is almost here and I cannot help my family and girlfriend the way that they need and deserve. I don't make enough money to give the support they need right now. My Glaucoma does not let me work long hours and I can't afford the health insurance to treat it. On top of that, my dad suffers from Parkinson's Disease which means I have to be around for him, and also help with my 3 nieces and nephews. I would very much love to give them a wonderful Christmas, but I know that is impossible with my income. My girlfriend does not have much at all, either. So, yeah any money I have, goes to help my precious loved ones, for rent and food. All I wish right now, is to be able to bring smiles to all their beautiful faces. I know that I'm pretty much looking for a miracle, but it never hurts to try. The only thing you can do is be honest and try in life. So, if you can find it in the goodness of your heart to help us out in any way, I would be eternally grateful. I don't really know what else to do. I feel so helpless, and worthless, is all. I know that life is what you make it, but it hurts when you can't help the people you love. So, if you have any suggestions, want to write to each other, or can help in anyway at all, please contact me at invinceible_1@yahoo.com . Thank you to each and everyone who responds. Someday, I hope to return the favor to all. Peace, love, and God Bless everyone. :)

We live in a very rural area in which help is very hard to find ---they usually have no funds available & never help on water.Please if any1 can help us threw this please respond.I've tried alot of goverment programs but due to such rural area hard to get help.All company's out this way know that we are under there thumb-sad but so true. It would greatly be Appreciated.

To all God's angels and Santa's helpers I am writing for the first time ever to ask for help this Christmas. I am a disabled single mother of 3. I have a mentally challenged, ADHD, and epileptic 8 year old daughter. My son is 10 and has ADD, and has been trying so hard this year to do well in school, and we were so proud of his first quarter report card that had all A's and B's instead of F's. I am so proud of him. My eldest daughter is suffering from an medical condition as well. On top of all this my mother was just diagnosed with cancer and has been in the hospital for the last 5 weeks. Our Thanksgiving was spent in the hospital. While at school all the children talked about their wonderful family thanksgiving dinner. My children had to say they had hospital food. Christmas looks as though it's going to be the same as Thanksgoving if not worse. I have always struggled but with God's help I was always been able to provide a decent Christmas, but this year I am so far behind in all of my bills and with going back and forth to Evanston Hospital and parking being $9 dollars a day has set me back even more. My entire income has went dtrictly on that. Fortunatley my landlord is giving me time, but the phone, lights, gas, and other bills are not so caring. I never thought I'd had to ask for help but this year I need it "despretay". It breaks my heart to think on chrismas morning the children will wake up and run to the tree like always and their will be nothing under it. I'm afraid it will brek their spirit and they will think that santa has fofgotten them. They will think they were naughy and not nice, they will start blaming themselves. When we say our prayers at night they always ask God to help those in need, In their letter to Santa not only do they ask what they want but they always ask for someone else's need as well. They are good kids, and I won't know how to explain to them why santa didn't come. I've always seen on the News Toys For Tots and how they give to those in need but I have no idea how to sign up for it. If anyone can help please contact me at in_need_angels@yahoo.com. Time is running out. Thank You and God Bless HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Debbie
