 in response to dare2believe...   Great!

It'll be nice to see what you come up with! We use freecycle and several other recycling places to donate and volunteer time too. Those resources helped me out so much when I had a need, so I'm just grateful that I can pass it along to help someone else! :-)

 in response to dare2believe...   Hey, Lady!

Have you checked out Freecycle yet? Most on the site is recycled, but sometimes people offer new things. Just go to www.freecycle.org, enter in your location, then sign up to offer and/or receive things. Let me know how this resource works for you?

I recently got out of a terrible domestic situation where we(my 3 children & I) ended up homeless & lost everything we owned except for each other & the clothes on our backs. We finally got our own place.We are starting over with virtually nothing & I got layed off from my job the day before Thanksgiving & now I'm not only worried about being homeless again but I just want to be able to give my children the gift of xmas so they can stay young at heart & believe in the goodness of people! I have no family to turn to for help. I support my kids on my own & it's very hard for me to ask anyone for help as I have never had to rely on any kind of aid/help to survive & it's very humbling. I have 3 children. My daughter is 18 in her 1st year of college. She is a sz 7-9, sz 9-10 shoe & loves all the latest styles. My Son will be 12 in Jan is a sz 12-14 & this has been hardest on him. He made a sign to take to target that said "please help my family" because he said it worked for the hobos...He would believe in miracles if he got a playstation 3 & some games, some clothes & a New winter coat & gloves/hat & warm boots. My youngest daughter will be 4 a few days after xmas & she is a size 4t & she wants a real "live" looking baby doll,real baby clothes for her baby & baby diapers a pacifier & a baby bottle. She also wants her own TOY computer. We all need winter boots & coats. We honestly have nothing but the few items complete strangers have donated to us. I would love to be able to put up some xmas decorations & a tree but I have a whopping $2.69 to my name at this moment. Thank You ANY help would be greatly appreciated & when I am able to get my feet back on the ground I will remember all those who helped me & I will give back & make a positive difference in the lives of others. Thank You!
