Hello I am a 29 year old single mother of two boys 6 & 10 and a daughter age 1. I work part time doing CNA work I have been looking for more hours and/or another job for about a year now. I haven't had any hope and struggling to make ends meet. I try to make sure my kids have what they need but with Christmas I need any help that I can get. I have been so stressed to think they will go another Christmas and me not being able to give them anything but love. They see other kids and their gifts but they have nothing of their own. I'm asking please for some help to bless my 3 children so this Christmas that will put that unforgettable smile on their face and make it a memorable one. Thank you so much!

Maybe you could explain to your children the real meaning of Christmas and plan a special activity that would focus on doing something for persons less fortunate than yourselves. You could explain to your four oldest children what is happening in your life (financial wise). They are not too young to begin to understand. You are very blessed to be finishing college.

There are many children who do not have a home or food to eat. (Last Christmas, several persons on this website sent small gift cards to purchase food.) Let your children know that there are hungry children their ages.

Maybe you and your husband could brainstorm on how to make the day special. For example, you could plan a special meal after you come back from a Christmas service or visiting an agency that keeps foster children or the elderly. (Just a thought). You could make small gifts for the elderly or a homeless shelter. (soap, toothpaste, shampoo). A pleasant Christmas day can be what you decide it will be even though you cannot purchase expensive present. This might be an incredibly rich gift for your children.

My husband (34) and I (31) have 6 children and have no clue how to I'm going to pull Christmas off. It's sad that Christmas is 4 months away and parents start worrying about this so soon. I have a 15, 14, 12, 10, 5 and 3 year old. I have always been able to pull off wonderful Christmas' for my children and I'm not even sure if I will be able to get them even 1 thing each. I hate that Christmas has become such a materialistic holiday so writing this is a bit dreadful for me. I guess we do this to ourselves. When parents are able to go nuts on presents for their kids for years the thought never crosses that jobs can be lost and bills can't be paid and being on welfare becomes a part of your life. My husband and I are graduating from college in May so eventually We hope to get out of this rut but for now I am desperate to reach out to the ones that are willing to help people like me. Please help my husband and I give our children a pleasant Christmas Day.

I wish I could but our cell phones got cut off about a month ago and our cable got cut off about 3 months ago. Also, our lights are scheduled to be cut off the 27th of this month. My son went to his girlfriend's house, but when he gets back, I can use his phone.
