How to get Financial Help for Christmas

Many people find themselves in a financial bind at Christmas time and not just when it comes to buying Christmas presents. You can get help. You just know where to look.

Christmas seems to come earlier and earlier each year and with the current economic crisis in full swing, many families will find themselves struggling just to pay their bills let alone be able to purchase presents. Charity doesn’t have to be one sided and if you are in a bind this holiday season, you can get help paying your bills, getting food in your home, and even getting presents for your children so that they have a good Christmas.

Christmas charity

There are many social service and charity organizations that can help you during this rough financial time and beyond if your situation warrants it. They will take a look of your financial records for you and help you determine just how much assistance you need to make sure your bills are paid, there is food on the table, and presents for the kids. Many of these organizations will also provide gifts for your children if you qualify. Clothing sometimes is also offered and distributed.

Christmas help organizations

If you think you will need help, contact the organization as soon as possible to make sure there is plenty of help available. The sooner you contact them, the more chance you will have to get help. Remember that families who need the help the most will take priority. Some places, such as food pantries, soup kitchens, and other charity meal providers need only proof of your financial need and they will distribute food to you.

How do you contact some of these organizations? The first place to start is your local Department of Health and Human Services which is run by the state that you live in. They will help you determine if you are eligible for temporary state aide such as food stamps and other monetary assistance. They will be able to point you in the right direction for assistance and aide if they cannot help you.

Local utility company

Your local utility companies have assistance programs as well that will help you reduce your monthly bills on a temporary basis so that you pay them and keep your lights and heat on. If you are a member of a church or religious organization, speak to your pastor or rabbi about your problems. Many times they will offer you money that is not expected to be paid back in order to get you through difficult times.

Toy charity

Organizations like Toys For Tots will help you get toys and gifts for your children, and the Salvation Army can assist with clothing and toys as well. All you have to do is ask, and there is nothing wrong with asking for help when you need it.

    I as a mother of 4 was happy to know there are places that help . The only problem is I live in South Carolina (not lots of help here). I was told to go to the Salvation Army for help they informed me that on the 6th of Nov you could show up with proof of children (SS cards) income and proof of where you live. When I got there i was blown away 90 people waited in line. They could only help 60 family’s .I am happy for them lucky 60 but I was discouraged at the fact that 50 of them had gold teeth. How can they help people with means? Gold teeth are not a necessity.Maybe they sould take out one of them teeth and get some things for there kids.Then the people that really needed help can get it. are we are out of luck when it’s first come first serve? So i try to be happy and give thanks for my kids but who really thinks of the kids? Sorry about the negitive tone but frustrated.

    I am a single parent with 1 4 yr old. I’m unemployeed my unemployment has been exhasted..I have no money to buy my daughters and grandsons anything for christmas…. Is there any help I can get, and how do I apply?

  4. dionne small Says:

    I need assistance with Christmas to buy my children some clothes and the things they would need. I do not know where to go


  5. marlene Says:

    I totally agree with Shawna. While I am very happy for the people that truly need help and get it, I think a lot of people don’t need the help but get it anyway. I think a lot of people get assistance and use the money that they earn for things like gold teeth, jewelry, cigarettes, alcohol, cadillacs, etc. I am frustated because I am a 35 y/o single mom of a 12 y/o daughter. I work everyday, full time, but only make $11.00 an hour for 40 hours, my job will not allow over time. Okay, I could get a second job, but for one, who will stay with my preteen while I am working at night or on the weekends (this is a very hard time for kids, she just started middle school), and for two, if I get a second job, that will take a job away from someone that does not have any job at all. Now, I have applied for food stamps, I make about $50 too much per month, yet I have not bought new socks for myself in over a year. The people in front of me at the grocery store the other day paid with food stamps, a few hundred dollars worth, they were dressed very nice, the woman’s wedding ring could have paid my rent for a few months. Salvation Army would not help me, they say I make too much money. What do I have to do to get a little help? I have never asked for help before but I need it very badly this year but can not seem to find anyone to help. Please, someone tell me.

  6. Dana Says:

    I have a similar problem. I am working a full time job and I have three children. It takes every penny that I make just to survive. I have no extra bills, no credit cards or anything like that. Yet frequently end up in the hole each month when it comes to basic living expenses. I have asked for help but I make too much for most organizations, and others have honestly told me that I don’t make enough to qualify for assistance. They told me that they can’t see how I will pay my bills the next month so they can’t offer me help. I don’t know what to do. I want to be able to pay my bills and get something for my children for Christmas but I don’t see how it is going to happen. If anyone has any other ideas please pass them on because I am at a loss.

  7. Anikka Says:

    I recently lost my job.. I struggled 4 the last few months to take care of my 5 year old son. I am a single parent doing the best that I can do to make ends meet I’m behind on my bills I recently applied for assistance through the county I get enough to barely pay my rent I am very grateful for that and I just need help my son will be 6 firs wk in December and then christmas I need help can someone out there please give me some insight on who can help me!! Thank you!

  8. Casey Neely Says:

    Hello I’m in dire need of help providing Christmas for my children, I am a 35 year old male, I have 3 Boys and 2 Girls, We also have an adopted girl that we took from a very abusive environment…Also our oldest daughter (17)just gave birth to a baby boy so now we have a total of 7 kids. My wife and I was working, But I have been recently let go do to massive kidney and back problems. Ive been seeing a doctor and now my insurance is being canceled do to being fired. My wife bless her heart is trying to carry everything she can but we are getting further in the hole… Ive applied for grants and been turned down. And to make things worse on our family we have been notified that our house is being sold out from under us. We have desperately been looking for a new place to live in our price range but have not had any luck yet. My wife and I are so sad because our kids are going to have to go without any kind of Christmas. Please someone point us in the right direction we need what ever help that we can get.

  9. michelle Says:

    Well I do not agree with marlene or shawna. People go through ups and downs in their lives and just because at the time a person has gold in their mouth or jewelry on does not mean that they are rich.I am a very educated female who has gold in my mouth which cost less than someone going and getting dental work done on their teeth. I have had very good jobs and was fortunate to be able to afford things for my kids as well as myself. When hurricane Ike hit Houston I lost my job do to my situation that arose from Ike.(no lights for 16 days,sewer backup in my home etc). This put me on the other side. I needed help at this point to catch up on my rent until I got another job. So I ended up in those long lines. The whole point is please stop judgeing people on the way they look. I am sure their are people that may not need it as much as the next but who knows what they look like? Think about it, the richest people in the world have pretty white teeth not golds. If you must judge someone try to judge on character of an individual and not their look. You can never judge a book by its cover.

  14. Granny Says:

    I live in a small town in Arkansas and just called all the numbers I could find that might offer some type of help for Christmas. I must say, I am very disappointed and sad that there is none available. I don’t care about myself (though I have so many needs it’s pitiful); it’s my granddaughter I care about and I have no money to get her anything for Christmas (after I pay what I absolutely have to pay to survive, there’s nothing left, not even for food . She’s only 5, so she’s still too young to understand.

  15. Darlene Says:

  26. Rick Says:

    I am writing on behalf of my little brother, Jason. On December 5, 2008, Friday morning at 07:00 my brother became a widower. Jason not only lost his Wife of 12 years, but his best friend, lover and the Mother of four beautiful daughters. The family has been through absolute misery this year, Jason is disabled with a spinal cord injury, as a result from falling from is truck bed at work. He has had two major operations on his neck/spinal cord this year. His only source of income is and will forever be Social Security. The family did not have life insurance for his Wife, Kristina. Jason is a young 32 years old, Kristina was 34. The girls ages are 7, 9, 11, and 12 years of age. Jason is a proud man, he took what little money he had and paid the costs for Kristina’s burial. She was memorialized on Wednesday, December 10, 2008, in Altamonte Springs, Florida. I know Jason can not provide this holiday season, he would never request for assistance of any kind, so I am on behalf of his baby girls. I am his oldest brother, I will help him with other critical costs, but I cant do it all. I need to know if anyone has any suggestions for me to help him with this time of need. Any ideas or solutions could or would bring a smile to the five broken hearts that I need to help heal. I want to thank all that took the time to read this request, and anyone that can point me in a direction to help this broken heart of hearts. In closing, all of this story can be proven, it is all now public record, Kristina’s death and Jason’s injury. I felt the need to disclose this as fact, unfortunately we live in a world that may take advantage of those with kind hearts that give to those in need. Please, if you would be so kind and pray for my brother, Jason and my nieces; Emily, Rebbecca, Lauren, and Caitlin. Thank you, Rick

  33. Gigi W Says:

    Well I decided to go ahead & start early looking for a little help for Christmas or any other winter help, knowing how my current financial state is. Somebody told me that the salvation army could help with winter coats, it’s called Coats for Kids. Well the one in my town doesn’t do it & the one in the next town, (but the same county) told me they only help people that live in their town, why aren’t we the USA? I have 4 kids & 3 live with me. I live in NY state so you know how bone cold it gets here, so I decided to say forget Salvation Army I can figure something out, so I applied for food stamps & was approved & so excited to get them. What I’m trying to say is don’t let anyone set you back, pray for the answer & it WILL come.

I tried to get my case switched over to where I am living now so that I can continue to get food stamps and I haven’t heard from them at all. It has been a month and I haven’t heard nothing at all from them. I have been so stressed out and I don’t know what to do. If someone can help me just this one time, I will gladly apprieciate it.

    Just looking for help with Christmas for my 2 kids. Our girl is almost 9 and our boy is 7. She loves dolls, art, reading, games, and outdoors. He loves video games, hotwheels, transformers, Movies, and outdoors as well.

    We are strapped for cash this year which is really gonna hurt our christmas but our kids arent greedy they are satisfied with anything. We had a small business that failed this year and caused our credit to be shot and us to lose almost everything we have. We are now living with family and sharing a room as we look for a home.
    We live in a small town and havent found any places that help. Anyways if anyone can help or know anyone that can, i will include our postal address along with email. Thanks alot for taking the time to read this.

    My name is Avis Evans. And I am a single mother raising 8 kids; age ranging from 9 months to 16. One of my children is mentally handicapped she is a 27 yr old with the mind of a 7 yr old. I am also disable and I am unable to provide my family with food nor toys this holiday season. every holiday season I am unable to really had fun and smile because I am always depressed about how am going to make their holiday wishes come true. I have two teenage daughters who are in college and am raising there children to help them have a better and a more stable life then I had. This along with many more other unfortunate events this year have set me back from granting my children’s holiday wishes. Bills along with buying food takes up all the money I have. many times leaving me in the negative. which mean I wont be able to buy them anything at all for Christmas. I know there are many struggling families out there who need as much help if not more then I do; but please if you can help me to put a smile on my children’s face on Christmas morning. They don’t understand money and how this world works yet, some of them have already given me letters to mail to Santa. How do I tell them Santa not coming. They are good kids and i don’t see why they should have to suffer because of my short coming. If you can’t help and you please forward my letter to some one or organization who you believe can. Thanking you in Advance.

  56. Heather Says:

    I have a 13 yr old son…in July I had a seizure that lasted 7 hrs, When I finally came to 4 days later I awoke with a pacemaker, as I had gone into Cardiac Arrest and actually died on the table. By the grace of God I was resuscitated! I have a second chance to raise my child!!! That itself is a blessing this Christmas, however with medications and medical bills and living on disability I am not able to provide a Christmas for my child…if anyone knows of any help that I might be able to get (hard to find here) to give him a gift this year please let me know. Thank you, and God Bless Heather

  60. Patty Dixon Says:

    Christmas is on it’s way, and I’m just not in the mood this year. Wondering how I will be able to buy ANY gifts! Working on getting my unemployment and foodstamps through at the same time! In the mean time, I’m getting behind on bills, that will have to be caught up as soon as I get my unemployment through, which could be 3 more weeks! If anyone would like to adopt my family for Christmas this year, that would be the best gift ever. I have a 15 year old son, and a 10 year old daughter..I don’t need any gifts..thank you.. you can contact me at [email protected]

  61. Jaylee's mom Says:

    I am a single mom of a 2yr old. I live with my parents but its no different than livin on my own, i pay rent and pay my bills. They help me by putting a roof over our head and watch my daughter while i am at work. I work 20 to 25 hrs a wk 8.90 an hour but i am suppose to be full time. I need a second job but my parents can only watch her for so long and i cant afford to pay a daycare. I am struggling with my medical bills cause state cut me off of medical cause i make “too much”. I will not be able to afford presents for my daughter and my parents cant afford to help. This yr my daughter fully knows what christmas is and i dont want her to miss out on what its like opening presents in the morning of christmas. I am glad to know there are places that are willing to help out, and for the people that abuse the right to get “help” when they dont actually need thats not right. there are people actually struggling to survive.

  67. Tonya Says:

    I am in desperate need of help for Christmas for my two children this year. Not asking for anything expensive nor anything extravagant. Just a little something to have for them Christmas day. I am in the process of getting my disability, my husband lost his job in January due to company cut back. We have managed with Gods help throughout the year, but there is just not extra. If someone could just help give us a glimmer of hope I would be forever grateful!

  71. Jill Says:

    The holidays are such a tough time of the year. My mother died this year and I lost my job during the year. The house I was renting, the landlord foreclosed on the property and I was notified when they were set to auctioning the home. I have had to move into my mother’s house which is up for sale for time being. So I have gotten behind in bills and my wish this Christmas is for financial help to ge caught up with the bills that are behind. I know the Lord is watching over me but I am in hopes that some one might be able to help this Christmas.

  73. Renee Says:

    I just have one little girl who is 9 and ive never had to ask for help before but the company I was working for filed bankruptsy ant the end of last year and i was unable to find a job until october, to begin on november 9th. They called and postponed the start date until November 30th. In the mean time I lost my apartment and car. My daughter’s father has never made any attempt to support my daughter and the state has been unable to locate him for child support. A friend of mine took my daughter and I in on a temporary basis until I could get back on my feet with the new job. 3 days ago, I received a phone call saying that “due to low call volume” my start date has been posponed indefinatly! I new that I wouldnt be able to get much for my daughter for christmas this year but now i am unable to get anything, not even a tree. I didnt know where to turn for help and the few p[laces I was able to find told me I have missed the dead line. If anyone knows anywhere at all that I could go for some assistance please please please let me know. Any thing at all would be such a big help. Merry Christmas and God Bless!

  77. Michelle Says:

    To all of you in need of help, I can not offer you money or gifts as I’m not able to provide for my own family but I can offer you some advice.

    1st and most important…please think about where you are posting!! Do not post your address, last name or phone number on the internet, you are trying to get help for your family but you may end up attracting the wrong kind of attention.

    2nd…I don’t think that too many will find gifts on this website, it’s more for suggestions of places to go to look for help…here are some places for you to look…
    locate your local salvation army
    Call 211 and ask about Christmas assistance or whatever other assistance you may need (great place to unload some of the stuff your kids have grown out of and also obtain gently used stuff for them for free with no financial restrictions)

    I hope some of this will help some of you and wish you all the best of luck. Times are rough for a lot of people right now so it’s important to remember to appreciate what you have. My family will be doing a sort of reverse Christmas this year. Instead of my kids asking for toys we’ve decided to go through all of their clothes and toys and things and give them to families who are in a worse situation then us. Instead of receiving gifts we will give them and remember the true meaning of Christmas. God bless you all.

  78. Noelle Landry Says:

  84. Patty Says:

    My name is Patty. I have a mildly retarded daughter who is 19 yrs old. I can’t get any help for her through social security or DFACS. I only make minimal wage and this is the first time since I had her that I can’t afford any gifts for her due to being out of work for surgery. We live paycheck to paycheck. If there’s anyone that knows anyone that might can help me get her a laptop for Christmas, PLEASE, please let me know. You can reach me at [email protected] Thank you & God bless.

  85. Rebecca Says:

    It seems like a lot of us are in the same boat. I’m a 26 year old mother of a 3yr old boy and 5yr old daughter, and will be declaring bankruptcy come 2010. It has been pretty hard to get any church charities and what not to be willing to help us, but I do not know how to approach these charities as I am not a member and have not been bold enough to try before. If anyone knows of an alternative route, please let me know. This year could turn out pretty ugly for my punkins :(

  86. jennifer Says:

    I am a 21 yr old mother who is married with two small children! Joshua who is 3 and Mikaylah who is 1 and 1/2! We really need help with out childrens chritmas this year!

I also tried to contact toys for tots and Harrison county is n ot covered! What am i suppost to do?

  87. marianne Says:

    Hello to whom it may concern:,

    my name is marianne, I have 5 children, I have been to several places that are supposed to donate or help with Christmas gifts, I have been told on several accounts that I was too late and theyre is nothing that they can do to help me. Ive been to the salvation army, Good Will, local dss office, and another place downtown where they are supposed to help with stuff too. I either got told that they are out of funds or I was too late. My Husband has not worked in over a month going onto two mo. How in the world can you as a parent tell your children that they wont be getting any gifts from SANTA? If there is anyone who can help me, I would greatly app. it. I myself usually is the one who collects donations to give to needy families,I have been doing this for the last 8 yrs, but this year the shoe is on the other foot, and I now need help. I thank you for taking the time for reading my comment, may god bless you all.. thank you.
    sincerely, marianne

  88. jenn Says:

    hi, there are so many people out there that need help this year, including me. i was also turned away from charity do to to many people in need. my husband was laid off this year. I have four girls 7,10,11,14. they understand the situation and that christmas will probally not b the same this year. its so very hard to get help i hope you all get help , i hope i do too. If not lets just all remember christmas is about family, love, Jesus and good spirit. If anyone just needs to talk or some support email me at [email protected] believe me i understand what its gonna feel like to tell ur kids there wont b a santa this year(i have to do it too) wishing all of us a christmas miricale bye guys.

  90. Amy Says:

    I am a single mother of two ans recently found out I am pregnant. After a bad fall at work /i started bleeding heavily and am now on bed rest indefinitely. I have no income now and Christmas is right around the corner. My kids are so excited and I have nothing for them. I have no family to help me and cant get around because of my condition. Where can I seek help without having to drive around too much? I am at my wits end.

  91. Strugglin parents Says:

    Hello, as I read these, I think I do not have a leg to stand on here, everyone needs help, most everyone is a single parent. I wish I could be on the other end of this feed, and help everyone of you out. I, unfortunately, am on the same end as you. I was a waitress, making good money during the summer, got laid off in September. I have three children, and a husband that works a salary job. With our income, he makes ‘too much money’ to get state assistance or anything like that. We have 5 people in our family. We stay home all the time, and find ourselves scrounging for change to put gas in the one vehicle we have to have him make it to work. We are looking to provide a Christmas for our 3 children. A little girl that is 7, and year old boy, and a lil boy that will be 2 in January. I have never asked for assistance before, so this is really crazy, and I feel dumb, and awkward asking for help. We are in a similiar boat as the one person I read earlier. Our tree, is leaning against our wall, because the leg is broken, we have broken beaded necklaces as garland, and we have one working light in our entire house. With all the bills and shut off notices, I am going down a depressed road. My kids open the pantry when it gets close to dinner, and my 7 year old says, “mom, there is nothing in here.” It makes me want to cry, but I know I have to be strong, and try to make the best of what we have. There is always someone that has it worse than I do. I am just looking for a little bit of help this Christmas. I never thought about the paypal account. I have one of those. The address for it is [email protected]. If you have a few extra dollars to help us out, that would be great. I would use the money for the children’s needs, and for a little bit of food in our house. I would greatly appreciate any help we could get! Thank you again. We would also take suggestions on anywhere else to go. Everywhere I have tried, (DHS, Salvation army, and food pantries) we make too much money :/ I do not know what else to do. My parents would help me, but my dad just had a total knee replacement so they are backed up as well. I am just so lost, and don’t want my children to see me cry, I need to have a miracle. Please help me and my family have a minor Christmas. Thanks!!

  92. Jennifer Says:

    It breaks my heart reading all the comments from people who are struggling. I’m a nurse, but was laid off a few months ago and I’m currently on unemployment. I’m also the single mother of a little boy. We aren’t going to have a lot under the tree this year, and instead of buying the clothes as we needed them I decided to wait so that the tree looks more full. However, we do have family and they will be giving us some small gifts as well, so I’m content with having some good food and company, and I know my child will be happy to decorate, listen to Christmas music and have hot chocolate. I realize we live in a nation of consumerism, and that some kids are looking for an xbox or a blackberry this year (I have one of those cheap prepaid phones for emergencies, but that’s it, and guess what? I’m happy with that!) however, there are ways to take the focus off of all the expensive crap that you don’t need and just have fun. Christmas may not be the same, but that doesn’t have to be a negative thing.

  93. Jennifer Says:

    PS. Remember The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, be like the whos!!!

    I have 3 kids who will not be opening not 1 present at all this year!!It breaks my hurt to know that I can’t give them anything!!!This is the first time we are going through this.I lost my apt. and my car.I see that it is hard on alot of people this year.All I ask for is lots of prayers for my family and I!!!I will do the same for everyone in need.Just remember as long as you have your family and there love and health than you should be bless and thank god for that!!I know you can’t tell a child that because they don’t understand but us grown ups, just try to MAKE IT THE BEST WE CAN FOR OUR KIDS!!!

  96. Annie Phillips Says:

    I am a mother of one and a step-mother of three children. I have been out of work for a while and have been unable to find a job. My husband is on disability, which barely pays our bills, and has recently found out that he has cirrhosis of the liver. We are unable to buy anything at all for our children for Christmas this year. I tried but have had no luck. If you are interested in looking, you can read my post at
    If anyone could find it in their heart to donate, we would greatly appreciate it.

  100. Teressa Willard Says:

    I would be so happy to be able to give my two a Christmas present this year! Last year I was in an auto accident on I-95. My 1st surgery was Nov. 08, I was able to give them 1 gift each. 2nd surgery was 12/31/08 & last was 7/31/09. My surgeon would not release me to go back to work due to my 25% range of motion in my neck that’s permanent. My employer held my job for 1 year then on 10/17/09 I lost my job & have been denied SSD. My son & daughter are full-time college students going on grants. They both work & they both help pay our bills! They truly deserve a Christmas present this year & I do not have any money! When I do, one thing is for sure….I will spread the wealth!

  101. Monica Wech Says:

    I am a mother of 6 children and need help with christmas this yr I have 1 boy that is 16 yrs, 1 boy that is 13 yrs, 1 girl that is 6 yrs, 1 girl that is 5 yrs , 1 boy that is 3 yr and 1 boy that is 7 months old please help us…

  102. Debbie Hagelgans Says:

    I am probably too late for help, but I will try anyways. I am a disabled mother of two disabled children. My son is 16 but is autistic. My daughter is 14 but has a very rare genetic terminal illness called mitochondrial disease. There is no cure or treatment for this disease, they can only treat some of the symptoms. Because of this she has epilepsy, cerebral palsy, and mental retardation. With great fatigue issues. My husband lost his job like everyone else in this economy. And the small amount of money we receive in unemployment, and disability is enough to pay the bills, put gas in the car and then whatever little we have left over goes to food. There is nothing left for Christmas, and it breaks my heart that we can’t provide. We never know from Christmas to Christmas when it will be my daughters last one, and any help that I can get would be ever so appreciated. Thank you

    God Bless,

  103. Toni Vaughn Says:

    Hello viewer,
    Out of all of the things that I can think that my children and I want for Christmas this year-here’s what comes to mind. (Everything) Here’s what came to mind with what we really need. We are in great need of a career. I went to school and I obtained an M.B.A in HRM and it seems as though you must know someone in this field in order to get a fair chance. All-in-all, I would like to make at least 47K and enjoy what I do. Merry Christmas!

    hello I have 3 girls that really need help for christmas. In jan. my 3rd child was taken by c-section and was almost 2months early. having a premature baby has really taken a big chunk of money from us this year.If anyone can help out with ANYTHING please email me at [email protected]. My girls are 7yrs old, 4yrs old, and 11 months old. They will play with anytoys.

  115. Dawn Says:

    As I read all these posts I realized somethings. I am a mom of 4 wonderful children. They are 8,10,12,14. My husband was out of work this last October for the whole month. Unemployment wouldn’t pay him, because CA stinks. We have been fighting for back pay for over a month but there is noone there to help. Then when the rain came he was out of work another week. The week we were finally caught up on bills and were going to get to go Christmas shopping. We were 3 months behind on our car payments & so when he began working we had to pay out $2100 to catch up our car payments. We haven’t paid rent since September & I have only gone grocery shopping 2 times since October. Somehow we have managed to survive. Actually it is our faith in God that keeps us going.

    I have been feeling bad that I can’t get my kids any gifts this year. It has been very sad for me. But as I read these posts I see that we are not alone, first. And second that Christmas has become so commercialized. We feel the need to spend & buy and go. But that is not what Christmas is truly about. We have lost the true meaning of Christmas.

    I would love to give my kids some gifts under the tree. (we told our kids there was no money, so they wouldn’t be getting anything from us. Since that was the case, did they still want to buy a tree. We had a few dollars to buy a tree (since they are only $20) and the kids said yes. So we got them a tree). I am totally not in the mood to celebrate. It has been hard. My family can’t provide Christmas gifts for the kids. My husbands family doesn’t buy anything they would like so I feel very bad. But why? It isn’t about the gifts. It is about celebrating the birth of our Savior. It is a ‘religious’ holiday and it is not a ‘commercial’ holiday. We will leave that to Halloween.

    For all of you who can’t afford gifts, make it a special day some other way. Make it a family day, play all your favorite christmas movies, make hot cocoa, play some games together. Just celebrate each other and don’t feel bad for not being able to provide gifts under the tree. This is supposed to be a happy time, not a mournful season. Let’s not let the media tell us we are awful parents, grandparents, friends, aunt’s or uncle’s for not providing expensive wrapped presents under the tree.

    Maybe there are things you can make with things around the house. It may sound cheesy, but at least if you can have something to open, the kids would be happy. We can redeem the holiday, we just need to be creative.

    Michelle Bullock:

    Have been hanging in there since my parents past away while I was pregnant with my now 2yr old. I lost my job during the economic crunch and have not been able to get back on my feet. My husband lost his position also and is about to finally graduate from ITT in December but that doesn’t help my children on a every day basis, let alone Christmas. For the last two years I have had to tell my children they have been wonderful but there are other children out there that are worst off, which is true. When am I going to be able to give them a little taste of Christmas the way it used to be. They are too young for me to tell them there is no Santa. How am I going to get awawy with it this year? Oh! Help me, please! I’m at my witts end. I can’t get work till my husband graduates and we can afford daycare so I can look for anything to do. I need help to make them feel like they are special and that there is a little magic left in this old world.

  127. Kristy Says:

    My name is Kristy
    My husband was injured while working on a job (he works as a subcontractor- no workers comp) and was out of work for 3 months. When the doctor told him he had to have surgery and would be out for at least another 6 weeks we thought it was going to be tough. One week later I was laid off! That was 2 years, 2 months and 1 day ago. My husband had not one but 3 surgery’s but I was lucky enough to get 400$ a week in unemployment. By the time he was ready to go back to work there was nothing- the economy had bottomed out and no one was looking to paint their house or add on an addition. He picked up odd jobs here and there and we cashed in all our life insurance, my 401K and every last bond we had. By mid summer this year my husband had roughly 30 hours of work per week and things we looking better when his father was diagnosed with throat cancer. He flew to Florida to be with his dad during a very risky procedure and that drained our bank account again. Not to mention that with me no longer getting unemployment he was our only source of income so with him in Florida not working we had NO income for 2 weeks!
    Now we’re so far behind on all our bills that we rob peter to save paul every single week. Winter has historically been a rough time for us and this year it’s even worse. We’ve lost our house to foreclosure and my car, we have no health insurance because we can’t prove what my husband makes, one of our children is on medication and we can’t afford it anymore, food stamps wants the same proof of income and so we’ve lost those and now I have to think about Christmas?? UGH! I would love to buy my kids something really nice- just one thing each. But what I’d really love is a job. I would love to get paid every week again, and have health insurance and contribute to this family like I used to. I know there are a million people and counting out there who are in the same and even worse shape then us, but it’s so hard to go from owning a home and going out to eat to applying for foodstamps and begging for the electricity to not be shut off! My kids deserve better… And I feel like a horrible mother for not being able to provide it for them.

    My name is Kim and I am a grandmother who is raising 5 of her grandchildren I have 4 girls 10,7,6,5 and 1 little man age 3. We have had custody of our 10 yr old for 5 yrs after her Mom signed her over to us and the other 4 got them in Jan. of 08 took custody of them in June of 08. We gave our daughter 6 months to get herself straightened out and unfortunately that did not happen. I left my career in 09 to care for them on a full time basis cause child care was so expensive:( we now live on my husbands income which barely pays our bills but we keep moving forward. I know there are lots of families out there that are struggling and my heart goes out to everyone that has to ask for help cause children are a blessing and deserve to have a good christmas. Thank you for all your help in years past and the years future. Kim Land

  136. Kiera Says:

    We are a struggling single income family with 4 children under the age of 6. We never know weather or not we will need help until just before christmas. unfortunately at that point there are no places offering christmas help for us. We do not want to take away from another family who truly can not get a christmas for their children. We will most likely need some help this christmas with my husband being self employed and things have not gone well once again this year. We will do our best and give our children what we can. I hope that everyone needing help gets it!

  146. Roberta Says:

    This is not for everyone; as many people do what they can. However, this will be the 2nd time in 14 years that we were not dirt poor and barely hanging in there….and not just at Christmas time. I have two children, and was behind the 8-ball financially since they were toddlers.

    I managed to provide a modest Christmas every year though! Cut your internet. Do you really need cable? Water is free and healthier then all the soda. I know I sound horrible with that; but its true.

    I hated not having the non-necessities, but it provided enough money to shop clearance sales throughout the year so there would be presents tucked away for birthdays and Christmas. My kids never got the expensive stuff, but were always happy to have some board games we could all play, a gift certificate to the dollar theater, books, or whatever odds and ends were on sale.

    I’m grateful not to be in this position any longer; but it makes me angry to know that I went without 99% of all non necessities for 12ish years and never asked for help. (I will be honest and say that one of those years my older son’s second grade teacher dropped by with quite a few nice gifts for both kids; but we did not ask her to do so.)

    Turn off the internet for a few months. The library allows you to get online for free. Spend a dollar for some teabags and make iced tea instead of all the soda; and drink water. Learn to cook meals from scratch and cut all the grocery expenses associated with the “easy” meals, and fast food. Get rid of cable and check out movies at the local library for free as a weekend treat. People lasted generations without a cell phone. It is still possible today. Get rid of it.

    It is amazing how much money you save weening yourself off the above. Its not easy, but it works. Watching your kids opening presents you were able to provide by not pouring your excess money into crap feels pretty great too.

  155. Michelle Says:

    Hello, My name is Michelle Wilhelm, I am desperatly writing you in the
    hopes of help. Me and my fiance Jason Waulk have four children all girls ,
    three of them are his from a previous marriage we have permanent custody of
    them..we gained it a few years ago after there mom lost them to state for
    good and we stepped up and did what we had to do to get them from foster
    care to our home. His children are in therapy once a week, and see a
    psychiatrist once a month..They all three are on lots of medicine because
    they are ADHD, have sleeping problems, attachment disorders, anger
    problems, and just some problems as a result of being put in foster homes a
    number of times while living with their mom and then being taken from her
    completely and being told they would never be able to live with her again.
    Our middle daughter Jenna also only has one hand she was born without fingers on the other so things in general are hard for her plus she has been made fun of alot. They have numerous problems as a result of all the have been through they
    struggle in school at times, they have behavior problems which is natural
    for any kid who has gone through every thing that they have, they now only
    get see there mom every other weekend and the courts put visitation rights
    on us because she technically has no rights to them but we allow her to see
    them but have the right to stop visits at any time if we feel necessary.
    They are also in the process of the divorce proceedings which will finalize
    everything but is tough on the children because they now understand mommy
    and daddy will not get back together. Since we have had custody of his
    three children we have tried to provide them with a stable home with love
    and structure to get them back on track. They are getting better with time
    but still have problems but our at least happy now and know they are loved
    and in a home where they will be taken care of. In the past year though we
    have fell on some hardships last december I became pregnant after being
    told years prior that i would never be able to get pregnant due to large
    amount of cysts on my ovaries, but as a suprise and miracle I did become
    pregnant. Unfortunately during this pregnancy I became high risk with a
    variety of problems and was not allowed to work, was limited to how long I
    could be up. My fiance was the only one working trying to pay all our bills
    we had to move from a house to an apartment where we lost alot of space, he
    worked as many hours as possible but only making 7.75 an hour even working
    over fourty hours a week we still got behind. On top of all this our cars
    transmission decided to stop working all besides first gear so we dont have
    a car we can drive. So we have to rely on cabs or others or mostly walking to get where we
    need to go. We do not recieve any child support from his childrens mother
    because she will not keep a job once they start making her pay. So we soley
    rely on his income to support our house hold. On september 11 I gave birth
    to our daughter by emergency c sections because of complications she is now
    seven weeks old and doing pretty well. Unfortunatly after seeing my doctor
    for my six week check up they found some complications and will only
    release me to work no more than twenty hours a week when I am released. Unfortunatly with four kids and only him working and trying
    to get caught up and keep our bills paid. We find ourselves in the holiday
    season with no money to buy christmas gifts for our children. They are
    great kids who have been through alot and have been trying hard to behave
    and do everything can to help out with home chores and everything. They
    have even been trying to improve in school and are just getting settled
    back in to a normal life again. We do not want to disappoint them without
    being able to provide a christmas because they deserve one we our just
    finacially not able to do it so we are asking for help. We do not have a
    car so we can not get to a place to sign up for help. We know
    you all provide help to families in desperate need . I was wondering if there was a way
    that you all could help us since we have to walk everywhere and this is our only hope to provide our kids with something. I can send who ever all
    the information on the children or family any information
    at all you need i can provide…I am just begging for help because I have
    no way to get to anywhere to get some…I am desperate please help us
    provide a christmas for our children. If you can help in any way please let
    us know I will get you any info needed. Also my childrens names and ages
    are Haley Jo Waulk age 13, Jenna Lynn Waulk age 10, Kaitlyn Paige Waulk age
    9, Caliah Trintiy Nicol Waulk age 7 weeks and we live at 575 main st apt 4
    Lawrenceburg Indiana 47025 I am a desperate mom and I just dont want to see my kids faces on christmas morning when they have nothing. you can contact me at [email protected] if you can help

    Thanks and God Bless You,

  158. Christina Says:

    My name is Christina. I am from Minnesota and I have 5 children and a disabled Husband. I am writing here for any help I can get. We are unable to get any gifts this year for our children or other family memebers. We are living on a very low income. We are about to lose our house. I am very sorry for those of you who think that people like us are in need of help even though we are able to work. Well in some peoples cases like mine I am able to work but when you have a Husband that is Disabled and Children that need you in the home you have no choice but to stay and take care of them. We do recieve food assitance from our local Social Services. But when you are living only on V.A benifits (and believe me it’s not very much) and a ex-husband that is not paying child support you have to go and get all the help you need. I am very sorry for venting here but it’s the truth!! I love my kids very much and would do anything for them. Our kids from oldest to youngest is Shilo age 12, Shawn age 11, Damien age 9, Matthew age 8, and Jenny age 7. These are my little angels. I just want them to have a good Christmas, they haven’t had one in a long time. I left this post/message looking for any advice or help PLEASE!! If you have any advice or help of any kind please send me an email at [email protected]

  171. jackelyn mccann Says:

    My name is Jackelyn Burkeen. My husband and I had been living paycheck to paycheck, doing okay until we both lost our jobs, and were both denied unemployment. As the time gets closer, we are more and more worried about giving our 2 yearold daughter (and my 7yearold step-son who does not live with us) presents for Christmas. We barely have the money for gas to get to job interviews or to keep food on the table. Any help for us would be SO greatly appreciated. They are such wonderful, happy, unselfish children and they deserve the best..far more than what we can give them right now. We can be contacted at email address [email protected] or phone number 908-943-7295. thank you<3

  195. Joseph Says:

    I am a father of four children, two daugthers 2 and 6 and two boys 8 and 13. Due to hard times and trying to keep food on the table, roof over our heads and all the utilities on, I will not be able to provide my family with a Christmas. All my children need are winter clothes. I am blessed to have children that don’t expect a lot but, they deserve it. I tried to pick up a second job but jobs do not come easy these days. My wife and I have sold everything we could, even our wedding rings, to keep us a float. Next is all our furniture. I have been blessed with great in-laws that have helped us but they are struggeling now too. I really do not know what to do. If anyone could help that would be a blessing. If possible I would love for my wife to have something to open too, she deserves it.

  198. Dana Says:

    Hi,I was wondering where to get help for christmas also?I am a single mom of three who works and I am also in college and it seems to me the ones who try can not get any help but the ones who sit around and wait for a handout get all the help they need.I think if somebody can’t find a job they should be required to go to school to get any help that way they improve their skills to get a job.

  205. Melissa Says:

    My name is Melissa, I am married and a mother of four children, ages 1, 5, 15 and 17. My husband has been unemployed for the last year and receives no unemployment compensation. I am disabled and unable to work. I receive a small SSI check every month but this is not enough to make ends meet, let alone provide a Christmas for my children. I have looked for local organizations to provide assistance and have not found anyone that can help. I’m humbling myself to this website hoping and praying that some kind soul will read this and give my kids a Merry Christmas. The little money we receive goes directly to bills, which we are behind on also, so money for gifts is just not there this year. If there is legitimate and sincere help for my family, please email me at [email protected].

    God Bless and Thank you.

  206. Erin Says:

    I am a single mother of 4 and my granddaughter lives with me. My unemployment has been exhausted and I have a parttime job at a grocery store. I have no money for bills much less Christmas.

    I entered this blog to tell my story. I’m so saddened by all the other comments, that I cannot ask for anything. I pray all of these families will be blessed in some way. If I had the means to help all of you, I would! I will now be gratefull that we have a roof over our heads and food in our stomache! Thank you God, that our basic needs are being met! When my two girls gave me their Christmas wish list, I let them read this blog! It really puts things into prospective.

    I have 4 children under the age of 12 . I have never felt more helpless or alone then i do right now. I have called many different #’s for a little holiday help for my wonderful children only to be routed somewhere else and in some cases just an out and out flat non caring “Sorry we have already picked the families we can help this year ” So as it gets closer to Christmas i keep imagining the sweet faces christmas morning so dissappointed because no christmas presents and no christmas dinner they will be lucky if we have aqnything better then some dry cereal for christmas dinner…I want to cry at how bad i feel right now and i wish i could do something for my innocent sweet children. There unfortunately is no help out there and i know i am not the only parent out there so desperate and depressed at this time which is even sadder!!!

  221. Crystal Says:

    Hello my name is Crystal and I have 3 children boy 6yrs old, a daughter 3 1/2 years old and a 17 month old. Im looking to get help but every time I turn around no one can help us. Im currently unemployed and going to school while my boyfriend tries to work as much as he can just to pay the bill and rent. I tried going to Salvation Army but they wouldn’t help us because we live to far north of the cities and that is pretty much the problem I am running into. Christmas is getting closer and we still have nothing under our tree. I am getting to the point where I have to break my kids hearts and tell them that Santa really isn’t real and we won’t have anything this year and I really don’t want to do that so if anyone knows of somewhere I can go please let me know. Thanks so much.

My jobs doesn’t cover my rent,bills,gas and it’s hard to buy them clothes or put food on the table at times. my little old car has alot of miles and its breaking down, the head gasket is bad they told me at the shop. but i don’t have the money to fix it. i did not get a chance to get an education because i was always too busy working to survive. i am a certified personal trainer now, and the gym has been slow lately. things has been pretty scary for me. i keep thinking positive as much as i can, hopefully God will shine the light on me one of these days? i just really need help right now,I have no money to buy my kids anything for christmas because i am very much behind on my bills, not even sure if i’ll have my rent this month. i cry myself to sleep every night because im scared of being homeless again, and i can’t give my two angeles christmas this year.
    thank you for your time.
    happy holidays.

    I am a mother of 3 boys, 8, 11, and 15. I recently lost my father to cancer and with all the expenses just to get home for the services took every penny we had for Christmas. Many of our bills are past due or already shut off. I too have come across the problem of making too much money. But these places don’t consider unexpected expenses that you can’t control. If you know of anyone who is still helping with Christmas presents for kids please, please let me know.

    Hi, I am a single mother of 2. I have a 7 yr old and 3 yr old, both girls and both are the love of my life. This is their first offical year of christmas. I haven’t been able to provide them with one since the bills always come first.
    Being blessed my bills are covered well ahead but sadly I am out of work. My income was cut off August this year. I was recieving income from my school but had to withdraw to be able to afford to cover my bills at home. They were my sole income at the time till my youngest daughters grandfather started to pay the bills for me.
    Right now like I said before, my bills are caught up and taken care of. I am asking for any kind of help I can get. I have their christmas list of what they really want. I would love for anyone able too, to help us this year. Please contact me at [email protected].. I can give out anything that is needed. Please contact me if your able to help!

  245. Sarah Moore Says:

    I am a very stressed out wife and mother. I have 4 daughter ranging in ages from 14-7. April 25,2011 my husband suddenly became disabled and he was the bread winner of our family, my full time job doesn’t pay well so when he became disabled not only did we loose most of our income but also our health insurance. I have never had to ask for help I usually could make things work out on way or the other but this year is completely different. My pay checks don’t even cover our normal monthly bills, we are getting ready to loose our vehicle and our home. It hurts because there is no way my husband can help many days I have to lift him out of bed and basically take care of him like a infant. I you can help or lead me in the right direction please email me at [email protected]
    Thank you and God bless you for taking the time to read my story.

  256. monica Says:

    Omg this website breaks my heart! I have had a very hard time this year as well. I had to have emergency surgery back in february. I was off work for 2 months. Then I jist got laid off. My bills are more then my income. Every week I get paid I have to bounce a check or they will shut off a utility. I also make too much for assistance. What is this world coming to!? I have 2 daughters ages 14 and 17. I’m a single mother. I tried the salvation army, but they only do gifts for 12 and under. Sooooo, if ur child is older then 12 are they just supposed to understand that u can’t afford to give them any gifts?? I just don’t understand it. But I want to suggest that this time of year, if u listen to the radio they usually give away stuff for christmas. I know, the odds aren’t good, bit seriously, most radio stations try to help people in need. Good luck everybody! My heart is breaking for all of you alo in the same situation. God bless

  258. Jena Says:

    In regards to everyone talking about The Salvation Army. I myself is not happy with the way they help people. I have had to go there myself a couple of time’s over the years. I go and sign up and they tell me ” We don’t usually do for teen’s because no one ever picks them. People would rather get for little ones, so don’t get up set when your teen don’t get.” The very first time i signed up they had there pick up process so messed up that as soon as they opened the doors people ran in grabbed what they could and ran out the door. They didn’t care if it was for their kid or not. Now mind you i had a 5 month old baby and a 7y/o. When i got there to pick up for my kids only my 7 y/o got. I said wait I signed up for both of my kids where is my babies stuff. They made everyone stop and searched everywhere and then said ” I’m sorry you did but when we first opened the doors people ran in and took before we knew it someone stole your babies presents. I’m so sorry but there is nothing we can do.” Don’t get me wrong I was very thankful for getting for one but i was also so ticked off that someone could steal from a 5 month old. I guess they needed more than i did but then again they might not have even had a baby. I need help badly again this yr and i call to see when the sign up is and they have a answering machine you leave your name and number and they will call you back. Well to my surprise still no call back they never answer the phone and now they dont even have the answering machine set up. I’ve tried other places and they all say the same thing ” I’m sorry we don’t help.” or ” I’m sorry we can’t help anyone else.” This has been on bad year for us. I’m at the end of my rope. I just don’t know what to do now.

  259. Stephanie Says:

    Hi, my name is Stephanie Hart age 37 and this is going to be kind of long.

    My husband and I married at 16 (together at 12) and have 3 wonderful children, Johnathon, 21, Jamie, 17, and Jacob, 9. We bought our first house at 18, but within 2 years we out grew it. We had a lot of financial problems, but my husband would work 2 jobs and overtime whenever he could, even with only 4 hours a day. He wanted me to be able to stay home with the babies. Once the 2 older children started school, I went to work. Then Jacob came along, (I was told I couldn’t have anymore children). I stayed home with him for 2 years, but he was a real sick little baby, with asthma and other conditions that confused doctors at Vanderbilt and Cincinnati Children’s hospitals. As he got older he got better, he is now doing really well with just the occasional problems with his Asthma, allergies and reflux. The swollen glands, neck swelling and etc. has stopped finally. He has had to have 5 surgeries on his ears with the last being this past summer. We lived in a 2 bedroom 1 bath home from the age of 18 until 3 years ago. Now we live in a nice area in Wilson Co., it has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. We both make good money, and had to recently get a new car, we haven’t had a car payment in about 3 years until this summer, but we had to have a reliable car that would hold our entire family. Now this is where it gets sticky.

    My son Johnathon, who is 21 this last September, is living in our 500 square foot bonus room that is the only room upstairs. That wouldn’t be that bad, but he has his wife of 1 year and their 2 year old boy and 1 year old girl along with another girl to be delivered any day. She can’t work obviously and they haven’t had a car in 2 years now. We have tried to help them with the car situation, but my husband and I both work full time and some. Johnathon does not have a job and we live in Gladeville and he can’t walk to work. He is getting a little bit of help from my uncle who works for himself doing flooring and when he needs help he will work Johnathon, it is not very often. My husband and I thought when we upgraded our house that since we were making good money we would be OK. We are supporting 91/2 people on 2 incomes. They have tried to get help so they can help us and they have been turned down for TennCare, food stamps, and WIC and every other aid they have applied for, more than once. The babies have no insurance and neither does their pregnant mom. This is the first time since we have been married that we are not going to be able to buy Christmas for our children and now grandchildren. It’s not fair to my 9 year old or my grandchildren. I would appreciate any help, they needs clothes so bad. My 9 year old is wearing pants to school that are high waters and the babies walk around the house in a diaper. They grow so fast. I have asked my family to not get the adults anything to just spend for the kids, but most of my family is poor, and my husband only has a sister and a few distant relatives left. Thank you for reading about my life, I didn’t think you would want to hear everything but let’s just say I could write a book… Have a happy holiday season, God Bless. email is [email protected]

    I have never got any child support from their fathers. I was really hoping to give my kids some kind of Christmas I havent been able to give them one in about 5 years now. I cant never find any kind of help. This is the frist time I have ever looked online, and im still not finding any answers.
    I dont have a job, I just got out of the hospital 2 weeks ago, only to come home to a house with no water. It had been turned off for nonpayment. I have applied for SSI and I am still waiting, im sure most of you know what thats like.
    So like I said I did find a site letting me know im not alone out here. I haqve read all of the stories and I feel REALLY BAD. I wish I could help all of these families,and my own as well. So I will pray for ALL of our families and just maybe something wonderful will come to ALL of us.

  275. Janice Says:

    Hi my name is Janice and I am a mother of 2 children. I have a daughter that is disabled and a teen son. I am having a lot of problems getting help getting Christmas presents for my kids this year. The medication that i have to get every month is very costly and I don’t have any money to get any presents for them. My husband works full time and I cant work due to my daughter’s condition. So My bills haven’t been paid in some time because we just don’t have enough funds to pay them at this time. If anyone knows how to help get presents for my kids and maybe help getting some bills paid please let me know. Thank you and God Bless.

  279. Joanie Murphy Says:

    I totally understand where everyone is coming from. I am married and Im a mother of three wonderful children. THis year for us has been a very faith testing year. My husband was diagnosed in August with MS. Then I started having trouble with my lung collasping then had to have lung surgery on Nov 2 which was my sons 13th birthday. I have prayed to GOD several times a day to show that life will get better. I work a full time job as a teacher in a daycare. But because of surgery have been off work the past month. I am usually the person who helps out other families this time of year but this year im unable and find myself wondering how will I give my own family a christmas this year. I dont want no pitty party I know there are families out the worse off then my own. But I just wanted to share that you all are not alone and I pray that every family is able to be blessed this Christmas season and no I have not tried to find help as for I live in a very small town with not alot of resources. Merry Christmas to all and please remember to keep your faith and GOD will see you all through your time of need as I pray he does the same for my family this Christmas season.

  280. Michelle Says:

    I am a mother of 4 wonderful children 3 girls 11,10,9 and a boy 3 My husband was military for 10 years when his time was done he couldn’t find a job local so went to work for companies overseas after almost 2 more years away from us and in danger he came home for good we live in a rural area that doesn’t offer toys for tots and the work is scarce so he decided to do otr truck driving unfortunately the way this works is you go to school for 2 weeks without pay then go on the road with an experienced driver at half the pay. He got home a week ago from school and was just called for his first trip and leaves tomorrow. We have exhausted our savings surviving and now Christmas is looking bleak I have asked for help through the school but because we live in a depressed area they are not sure how much they will be able to help. I know Christmas is about being with family and being thankful for what we have but to a little kid it means more. I have explained to the 2 oldest children what is going on and they are very understanding. Any ideas of other organizations that may help out. Thank you for your time

  281. Ginny Says:

He has platelet dissease right know is is effecting his life he cant play outside because he can not get hurt and get bruises. It is really hard telling you 4 year old son he cant go outside. My daughter is such a huge help with him . ANd because of bills n docters bills n medacine bills, I CAN’T AFFORD MUCH FOR THEM FOR CHRISTMAS AND IT’S HEART BREAKING . I cant even imagine them waking up on christmas n theres nothing for them to open . I am hoping there is something you can do or something you can tell me i can do to help me with christmas this year ,I really dont know what to do .Thankyou very much and god Bless

  287. Crystal Says:

    I am a working mother of four beautiful children. My oldest and only girl is 9 and my three boys are 7, 4, and 19 mths. I am like everyone else I can’t even afford all my bills much less Christmas presents, which breaks my heart. My children are so excited about Christmas and I don’t know what to do. Me and my husband have always lived from pay check to check but it has never been this bad. 19 mths ago my youngest son was born and he was born with Down Syndrome. He is a true blessing to me and my family and we wouldn’t change him for nothing, but we expected a healthy baby and a speedy trip home. That was not the case for us. We were in and out of the hospital and me and my husband both lost our jobs because of missing work. I have just now found a job, while doing online classes, and my husband has took on the home maker role. Someone has to be at home for our children, but that has left us in great debt and children do not understand financial issues. My children still believe in Santa Clause. How am I supposed to explain why Santa didn’t come? I read all these stories and it truly saddens me and I wish I could not only help my family but everyone in need, some in more need than I. My Christmas is just being with my family and seeing my childrens smiling faces because Santa left things under the tree and this year that is not going to happen if I don’t find some kind of help. I love my children more than anything and their happiness is my happiness, I truly don’t know what to do if anyone has any answers would you please pass them along and I will do the same. I sincerely wish everyone the best. I pray everyday about these problems and I will definetly add all of you to my thoughts and prayers. I wish I would win the lottery tomorrow so I could buy all of you gifts. I know Christmas is about alot more than gifts, but little children don’t understand that, even if they say they do you know it bothers them. I am like everyone else I don’t want to see my children go throught that, so please if anyone knows anything please help!!

    Dear Brother and Sister in Christ

    Greetings to you in the precious name of Jesus Christ
    I hope your all safe under the almighty wings of Jesus Christ. I am introducing myself; I am Rev. K Prasada Rao, President Founder of GOOD SHEPHERD MINISTRIES at Andhra Pradesh in INDIA. I have been working in JMBC Church for 33 years. Our G.S.M Vision and Motive is “He said to them Let us Cross over the other side” Mark 4:35 by on this, who doesn’t receive gospel in the villages, we will send the gospel to them. Most of the villages are Tribes (Yanadi) and they children are poor they don’t have any good shelter, sufficient food and education.
    We have several village ministry, every where we are adopting children and train up them to Way of Jesus Christ. So our G.S.M is going to starting a New Child Care Project, because our lord Jesus Christ said in the Bible “Let the Little Children come to me, and do not forbid them, for of such is the kingdom of god” Mark 10:14 And we started this for children should learn how to reach the way of god; all they are very interested to go the school for studies.
    We conduct a program in those villages on January 1st 2011 onwards. In this project we will gather a number of children’s and we are conducting a Child Care Project in every adopted village by Good Shepherd Ministries. Mainly it was evening time project; present we have children belongs to Tribes in Our Child Care Ministry. The schedule of these children from morning to evening at school after then 05:00.P.M to hours, after that we will teach the word of god from half an hour 06:00.P.M to 06:30.P.M then, 06:30.P.M to 07:00.P.M is dinnertime. The Child Care Ministry was maintaining by Grace of God
    By the will of God we started this project at Evening time. Presently we condoning in Evening time we want to run this project for Full Time and help the children in the Jesus Christ. Please help our children and join in our ministry. We have to plan to run this project as a Full time project. And we give to them Cloths, Food, Education, and Accommodation.
    I have a financial problem to run this completely, so will you please raise funds for this Child Care Project. With your help we can run successfully this project. We are waiting for you reply and I hope you may raise funds to Child Care Project.

    God be with us till we meet again

  308. Josh Says:

    My name is Josh, I “was” going to ask for a little help. I’m on SSI and have 2 kids. 11 and 16 mounths. It took me a while but I read “every” post on my way down the page. I really could use just a little help but I realise that its a frootless venture, not cause I believe there are people who need it more than me, I KNOW there are. But cause there WAY to manny people willing to “LIE” about thier circumstances to get free stuff and money. You see, I cant say that my bills are not paid or that my kids dont have anything to open on christmas. My most pressing bills “are” paid and my sons have a couple presents each. I am Sick and I am hurting badly for money. But as a father I could NEVER allow my children to go with out whats important food, warmth and a roof over our check is 636$ and I make it work, I streach that money as far as I can. This time of year is the only time of year that I worrie about money. cause I want to do right by children. This year I got them 1 real nice gift each instead of a bunch of cheap things. Yes! this was my fault Yes! it was a bad idea. but I did it anyway. I’m noy gonna say that I dont know how its gonna turn out.Again that would be a lie, in three weeks my check will come and I’ll not have to worrie again until next year. until then I’m broke no money at all. but atleast I can say that I didnt except a handout that could have been given to a person who really needed it. 97% of the posts above mine should live the rest of thier lives in SHAME for being nothing more then selfish lieing losers,! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! most of you can say that your kids “WOULD” have christmas if hadnt spent all your money on crack or boose or pills……..e.t.c! I know because I used to be you but I never tried to do what your doing you are the lowest for human life, and though many of you used the lords name in closeing I would bet my life that the LAST person you want to meet is God. So go ahead get what ever you can get. My kids and I will make it on our own. You worthless drug addicted low life scum!…………God bless and thanx!

    I have been unemployed since January 25, 201. I am caring for my convalesant mother who is under hospice care and I am unable to do anything for Christmas for my mom. Christmas has always been her favorite time of year and I am afraid that this may be her last one. That seriously bothers me in my heart. I have 3 herniated discs in my back and have been trying to find work to no avail. I hope everyone has a happy and merry christmas from the Shaw Family. God Bless

    I know I might be a little late,i was hoping that the Salvation Army would be able to help me, but unfortunately they told me no, that they had a lot of families this year,I’m a single mom of 3 children, i lost my job in November of 2010, my car was booted and inpounded, its been so hard, being i have no family help, last year my kids had no Christmas gifts, told them next year would get better and we will have a Christmas, but it has been so hard to find a job, and when I did find one i was not able to take becouse i have no one that would be able to take my kids to and from school, this has been a very tough year,where there have been times we had nothing to eat, but thanking god always for still being here,all I’m asking for just one gift that my kids can receive this Christmas,that’s all, my littlest ones still beleive in Santa and I wouldn’t know what to tell them when they wake up on Christmas day and theres nothing for them to open, it breaks my heart just thinking about.

    I live in Austin Tx. & I don’t know where to turn and am scared. I am disabled and just found out that my paperwork for medicare wasn’t filed properly and now Social Security will be taking out 300$ off my next month’s check in Jan. I went down to fix the problem a week ago and they told me it would take 45 days to fix. So the next two months Jan and Feb I will be shorted money off my check, of 718$ which I get monthly, that will cause me to not be able to afford my apartment and will get kicked out on the streets. I cannot live off 300$ these next two months. I cannot believe this is happening right around Christmas and have no one to ask for help. I am all alone and scared. I am 46yrs old and worked all my life till I had a bad inccident 8yrs ago and was shot by my husband. I have been dealing with doctor’s all these years and still am unable to work due to a broken back from the bullet hitting my spine. If you need any proof of my income or anything else like my Social Security award letter I can provide. Please if you can find it in your heart I will greatly appreciate any help. Thank you and God Bless, Dee

My only source of income is a small amount of child support that feeds my daughter and I and barely makes the light payment. I have no money to get my daughter not one Christmas gift and then on top of that have to explain to her that it’s very possible we might lose everything. I feel really bad and somewhat of a failure to my daughter and myself. I just have to keep my faith and keep believing. If at all possible could anyone please help me. I would greatly appreciate any help if possible. Please call if you can at 832 837 4259. Thankyou

  323. amy hernandez Says:

    > I am a mom of 2, and our lives are devastated right now. I have repeatedly applied for disability and continue to be denied. I have it currently in appeals, this time waiting upon an actual hearing, in front of a judge. My 18 year old daughter is also disabled and has been since age 2. Her name is Maggie and Maggie was getting SSI of 379.00 a month. She just went for an adult re-evaluation and we got the letter yesterday that as an adult, SSA no longer finds her disabled. She has ADHD, a severe learning disability, and a significant developmental delay. The loss of her SSI is, to say the VERY LEAST, extremely devastating to us. We were looking for help so badly even before we got that news. Now, she, I, and her 12 year old sister who is in the 7th grade this year, are going to be completely without any income. The 12 years old dad is court ordered to pay her 284.00 a month is child support but he never does. He pays very sporadically and is over 22 grand in arrears. Last month he paid 160.00 only. We need your help so badly, especially now. Maggie has enrolled in business school at SCC in Dobson, and I am trying to get into graduate college too. She and I will be taking a lot of online type courses and going to the library that much is just not feasible. She has BEGGED me to help her find help to get her a laptop and we do need it. Since she was in IEP all throughout school, and she finished high school with a vocational diploma, I wasd by several people that her being disabled, we could get the laptop and financial help too. She just graduated high school and wants to go to college and take some of the online classes but we have no computer, no internet, our car is broken down and just in need of so many repairs.
    > Most days we have to go without most basic even hygiene products and I as well as my 18 year old have needs of household items and hygiene items, not to mention a lot of other things in life. I feel as if life has abandoned me and my children. I feel like I am being severely punished by God for something I did. I only know that I have lost 35 pounds in the last 4 months worrying, and have a sister in stage 4 cancer and having to deal with that and my circumstances all of it is killing me. My kids and I do not deserve this “void” “null” and non living existence. I am 100% truthful now and BEG YOU to reach out and help us.
    > I am signed up for Pell grant which basically covers my tuition and books but we were recently homeless and the apt we are in now and since Dec, is already behind 2 and half months rent. I can not find work and being disabled, its hard for me to cope too. I been dealing with enormous problems, a very serious, long term addiction to pain pills, and other drugs too. Thank GOD he has helped us in that, I have been sober from everything now almost 7 months and not one pill so far. I got served with an eviction notice by the sheriff the other day and my court date is 8/31. I don’t have anywhere to go, or anywhere else I can turn. Can you help me get the rent caught up? My daughter and I both are enrolling in online college classes and we will be getting a little bit of refunds later in September but I told the landlord and he is not willing to wait. I gave my car title to him and still he wants his money by that day he said. I have no where in the world to go, no one to help us. Please can you help us? If no, do you know where I can find help? PLEASE, we been homeless and its not fun.
    > We are 1,350.00 behind on our rent and my landlord has given me an eviction letter, my electric bill is 495.00, and our car is in dire need of repair. The check engine light is on and because of that, it would not pass inspection and now my tag has expired. A guy at the auto parts ran a computer test on it and it is needing wires, plugs, there are 2 other parts too that the engine needs and they are 78.00 for both. It also has wire coming from the tires, the alignment is really bad, and in another week and a half or so, the state of NC is going to hit me up with a huge charge of 250.00 more if I dont get the inspection done soon and get my sticker for my tag. We went homeless in September of last year and our lives were pretty awful. We actually faced having to sleep in the car for days once, as all the shelters everywhere were all full. PLEASE, we do not want to face all that again. Can you please help us at all? I will do my best to pay it back to you. There has to be some kind of program, grant, assistance, or something to help us.> mt airy nc 27030
    > GOD I HOPE THIS IS FOR REAL AND YOU CAN HELPP US. MY LIFE IS NOTHING BUT MISERY. I HAVE MADE SO MANY BAD CHOICES AND NOW MY GIRLS DO WITHOUT ALL THAT HUMAN BEINGS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO AND THEY ARE SO GRREAT. THEY NEVER ASK FOR MUCH AS THEY KNOW WE CAN NOT BUY IT. CAN YOU HELP US OUT FOR CHRISTMAS? I NEED TO FIX MY OLD CAR AND GET MY BILLS PAID UP TOO. GOD BLESS YOU SO MUCH!! We have not a dime to our name and NONE for fixing the car, paying the rent and light, much less Christmas for the girls,. My heart aches and my whole being is so depressed and sad as they suffer already and way more than they should and the really frustrating part is I can not do nothing, nothing as I am totally alone and have no support system to help out and broke and I want to have a little something for the girls for christmas and a tree and a dinner. I can not do nothing, for Gods love, can you help us?

  325. martin Says:

    I don´t know what to say after all that i´ve read. I was thinking of asking for help, but, now i´m not sure. i´ll go ahead and I pray that God can be glorified thru this and not me.
    I was born i Colima Mexico. At the age of two I was taken to the U.S. I was raised there in the state of washington, did my elemetary and junier hihg school there. As I was grwing up I got involved with the wrong crowd. I started drinking, and that eventually led to smoking and other heavier thing´s, like smoking cigarets, marijuana, and even cristal meth. That´s something that I regret very much. I was not a very good person. when I was under the influance of those thing´s. this a a very long story, so I will get to the point. All this time that I was doing all of this I felt it was wrong. But there was something that kept me doing it. peer presure, it was the in thing most people I knew were doing it. Big mistake! I ended up in jail many times for thing´s I didnt do, took the blame for thing´s that I did not do. And some I did do. The whole time that I was doing all of this I felt terrible. There was a time that I ended up in jail. And I had a chance to look at what I was doing to myself and my family. God started His work in me. I felt His calling, and by His grace I was able to answetr His call. My life has changed drastically ever since. I now after accepting the Lord in my life, live in Mexico again. not by decision but because the Lord sent me back here. I was deported because of the life sin that I lived. Ican see this clearly now. its nobodies fault but mine. My life my sin, and by the grace of God I have survived here in Mexico twelve years now. Iam married have three children ages 9, 8 and 6. Thank´s to my Lord and Savior. this whole time I have been having a hard time trying to keep food on the table, and keeping the family dressed. I live in a boarder town and the violence is terrible. I have been praying to God and asking for His help. Recently we felt that the Lord was telling us that we should relocate to a small village to the south of here, and we prayed and asked the Lord that if this that we were feeling was from Him we needed some kind of signal from Him. A couple days later my wife called her aunt that lives in this in this village (rancho is what its called here in mexico)and told her of our conviction. And she agreed she felt that it was from the Lord. Everyone that we have talked to seems to agree. The next day my wife called an uncle of hers in this same village, and she told him about our conviction, and the Lord surely put this in his heart. He told her this that you guys are feeling is right. I am donating a piece of land to you guys so that you can build yourselves a house (PRAISE GOD!!). Now what are we going to do? we have no money, no job. Lets pray and ask the Lord to direct us. thats why i now am doing this. there is more to this story, but it will take me for ever to type it . It has already taken me a couple hours to do this already. I guess what I want to ank for is help. Is there anbody out there that can help us out. We need some money to move in the direction that the Lord has sent us, and start building a little adobe brick house. thats the cheapest way to build here in Mexico. If there is anyone out there that can please help us we would be very gratfull. This is my #011-52-1-877-103-6830 or u can contact me at this address [email protected] thank you and God bless.

  328. Christal Says:

    I am the last person in the world that thought they would ever be asking for help. But saddly this year we really do need it. My husband last year was in a terrible car accident, with having to stay at home with him, I am not able to work and go to school, Well my school is paid for so I have to go to school right now so I can go and get a decent paying job. We are living off of 300$ a month right now. That doesnt get you very far when you have 3 kids that need things. I have a 13 yr old daughter, a 7 year old daughter and a 2 year old daughter. It was bad enough that they didnt get a birthday present this year because of the finacial situation but they deserve a Christmas but we just can not afford it. If someone could help even if it is just one small thing it would be greatly appreciated.

  329. Heather Says:

    Well, here goes…..I do not like to ask for help what so ever, but this year I am in desperate need. I am 27 years old and I have 2 wonderful children:) They are 8 and 7. They truly mean the world to me. For 6 years I have been a stay at home mommy to them. Up until 2 months ago I babysat my elderly step-grandmother for 18 months. She lived in Williamsport Pa, but she took a brain cell stroke and could no longer take care of herself on her own. She came to live with my mother and step-father in Scranton pa under hospice care given the impression she would not make it longer than a week, well she proved everyone wrong. My mother and step-father had to work for a living, so I was given the priviledge to take care of her while they did so. For the first two months I did it for free, and then they offered to pay me $10.00 bucks an hour so they didn’t have to hire personal care for her. Honestly, I probably would of did it for free still, because that is just the type of person I am. Family means everything to me, and she was my family!!! Two months ago, she died:( I miss her everyday! Anyways, my husband, his work isn’t in the best of condition. He works for a construction company, and he has been layed off, off and on. I have been forced to get a job. I am not making any money though, so I just got a weekend job as well to try and save up for money to buy my kids presents. It is really hard, because my kids still believe in Santa! I tried explaining to my kids that Christmas might not be as good as it has in the past, but you see we live upstairs from my sister & brother-in-law and they have 3 kids of there own. They get everything. They alway’s go overboard for the kids for x-mas, and how the heck am I suppose to explain to my kids that they got all thoses gifts and my children only have one so far that I have been able to afford? I really don’t like asking for help, and the main reason I got 2 jobs is so I could give my kids a good christmas, but everytime I get paid it goes in one hand and out the other on bills. I can’t even afford to get my son a haircut right now. I know there are tons of people who have it a lot worse right now than I do, and I feel horrible for being miserable like I have been lately, but I try to be happy and act happy, but it is really hard knowing I can’t give my kids what they deserve. They have had it pretty lousy the past year, and they make me feel horrible because they are always asking why can’t they do this and why can’t they do that. My cousins are doing that, why can’t we? They are 2 young to really understand. I understand if people thing I am crazy for asking for help, but if someone was willing, I would be so thankful.

    Nov. 17, 2012

    Hello everone. My name is Gina and I am the proud grandmother of a five year old angel. Her name is Reese. I have taken care of her since she was three months old, and had custody of her since she was two years old. Reese doesn’t have a mommy and daddy because they chose drugs over her. However, she has a mimi that would choose her over my next breath. This little girl has been through a lot, some of which she remembers, yet she shines above it all by being the best natured, loving child in the world. (not a fact, just mimi’s opinon). The thing is, I lost my job over a year ago, and for the first time since I was 14 years old, I find myself unemployed and broke. We arecurrently living with my sister and her husband and sons,(not a good situation because the husband resents us being here). I just try to stay out of their way and clean their house as well as any other jobs that need doing so we can stay until I get back on my feet. I can not ask them for Christmas money for Reese, they have enough bills on them because we are here. Can anyone help me give this little girl a good Christmas? She is thrilled with anything she gets. She always makes a big list, but forgets about it when she opens her presents on Christmas morning. I know there are a lot of people in my situation. When I get my degree in business in six months, I will be able to find a job and the first thing I am going to do is pay it forward. I vow to visit this page and help someone give their child, or children a better Christmas.
    Thanks for your time, and God Bless us Everyone.

    hello my name is victor. i am looking for some type of assistance for christmass this year. I dnt usualy apply for assistance because my job helped made it somewat smooth and felt that thier where other families in need more than ours at the time. this year has been a difficult year for our family. my mother in law , who ive known for 15years through out the time of my relationship with her daughter,who is now my wife just passed away in oct.2011. and now the hollidays seam to be nothing more than a reminder of the empty space in our hearts which was once filled with a warm loving
    caring indiveduale. late in the summer of 2012 the end of aug.i recently lost my job. i have searched and searched for a job and have had no luck. we where just blessed with the help of habitate for humanity, we became home owners. never did i imagine i would own a hme. now having lost my job got our family vehical repo-ed. our lights off and are facing possiable forcloser. every thing that me and my wife have wrked so hard for seams to be slipping so stressed out and worried. i fear that santa wont make it to see my house. our kids are straight A students ,a boy twin girls and a 4 yr old girl who are very appriciative for the little things and would probly be happy with just the lights on and knowing that are house is safe from losing. but even then me and my wifes olny wish for christmass as is every year is that our kids have a christmass.
    PLEASE some help is better than none . im not saying that my situation is worse than others because some one always has it worse than others. im reaching out in hopes that a lending hand might help me and my family to pull threw this holiday season.
    next year we pray will be better.. thank u for any help u can give. and thanx for just taking the time to read my entry.

    sincerly, the reyes family….happy holidays

    Hi im Michele…I have 3 kids and im in desperate need of help for them this year.. my oldest son is 20 and is a volunteer fire fighter, and I have twin boys as well and what makes it even harder is the twins birthday is Dec 20 they will be 10, one of them had surgery just 3 weeks ago and I am struggling to have Christmas this year, all my boys are sooo giving, and so caring of others it just breaks my heart that this yr they may not have christmas :( my parents are in no condition to help me, my father may not make it through Christmas but, with Gods will my dad with make it fine, weve had it rough even with everything my twins have been through, even one of them being molested a few yrs ago( and yes it was reported to the police and has been taken care of) , they have been going to therapy for all that as well and are doing great.. but anyways.. if anyone can or would help with Christmas please get in touch with me … Thank you and God Bless!!

    Hello, I am a mother of three, My eldest son is locked up and my two younger children are here with me. I work everyday; somedays I’m scarde to look at my gas hand..year 2012 has been the roughest year for me…I normally dont ask for help but this month is the worst for me..We have no tree,presents,food ll I’m asking for is some financial assistance. I trust amd believe in God I give to people needier than me and I pay my tithes and offerings unto the lord…Please, I’m asking that someone would help me and my kids to just pay up some bills, have a tree and some gifts to go underneth it, no more no less…The two kids I have at home are so brillant and dedicated to serving God, one is on the Technical team at Church and the other one is in the Choir…I’m Praying to God every night that he will surprise them on Christmas day. Their worried everyday that when they come home a utility will be cut off; i’m not asking for much; all i ask is that my kids enjoy their Christmas and that my Water & Gas Bill is paid…I dont want anything for Christmas except to see them Happy. Please and Thank You.
