I am a single mother of three children, and we recently left a domestic situation in Duluth, MN to come here. I have been unemployed since I left home in May. I did just accept a job offer with Wellpoint, however it does not start until Jan. I hate to really bother or ask for help, however, with noone here in Indy, I am feeling desperate. Though I would take these struggles over the violence any day, I would like to give my children something to open on Christmas. Two of the three still believe in Santa Claus. We appreciate those who are able to bless us, as well as those who cannot. Feel free to contact me 217 8569.
Christmas Blessing needed
My name is Cynthia I am Christian Home School educator with limited ablity to get around I have diabetes which is a daily obsticle for me,Osteoarthritis and Rhumadtoid arthritis in the hips and legs so I rely on limping or a crutch. My husband works a minimum wage job but with seven children we are in need of help since his former employment was downsizing.He had two jobs but now with one we have very little to work with.I am a mother 0f seven wonderful children we have a low income and are seeking people or organizations to please help donate new or used toys for Christmas this year and kids clothes. I have children 7,8,10,13,2,8mo,and 5 year olds.
Last year was the first Christmas my husband and I couldn't provide gifts we were crushed but our children are so loving they were happy with one doll each and toy cars from the local dollar store.We prayed to God for help and we believe someone may have compassion on these wonderful children and help.I know it's early but ,last year all the donation agencies said we were too late signing up for help this year I'm starting to save an items Ican to make this year great.
I am a working single mother. I have two awesome children at home with me, a girl 16 and a boy 15. They're both excellent students and very giving people. I also have a 21 year old daughter who's married and has given me my first grandchild. He is almost ten months old. They are all the lights of my life!
I work a full time job and am looking for a second job to help support my family. My ex-husband and the father of my children is a walking definition of a "dead-beat dad". So there isn't any help to be expected from him. There never has been. My family is also struggling so they can't help either.
To my frustration, I have found that there is no assistance available to someone who is working and trying to make a living. Unless my children are involved in some form of family services or receiving public assistance, there is no help for a family.
I just barely pay the bills on my income so there is no extra money for Christmas gifts or a Christmas dinner. As hard as this is for me to swallow my pride and ask for help, I know it's something that I must do.
Does anyone know of any type of assistance for someone in my situation?

My name is Kara and I am married with 4 children. We just moved to raleigh, north carolina on December 1st. We moved here because my stepfather was killed in a car accident and my mother was alone here to take care of her granddaughter. We didn't want her to be here by herself. We were already having hard times as everyone else, but this moved cost us more money than we had. We are borrowed out and our children do not have anything for christmas at all. They don't even have a christmas tree. My 12 year old has 6-8 seizures a week, and my 1 year old has really bad asthma, we have been in the emergency room alot lately. My children ages are girl 12, boy 6, girl 5, and boy 1. Is there anyone that can please help my children this christmas? I can be reached at email@example.com. Thank you so much in advance.

Hello. I am still looking for just the used but good condition games with all the pieces.They are happy with anything. The girls are 12 & 5. son is 6.
Games Like the following would be great:
1-used gameboy advance games
5-Scrabble Junior OR Scrabble
6-Monopoly Junior OR Monopoly
7-Hungry Hungry Hippos
11-anything else that you think the kids would like.
I would appreciate getting a couple of games for them to play. The don't have any at all at this point. I think games would thrill them so much. Plus my other half and I can sit down with them and play also and teach them =) Sounds like lots of fun!
Thank you and God Bless All of You!
