PLEASE SEE THE UPDATE AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS POST – THE NINTH ANNUAL JAMES GARFIELD MIRACLE

So here’s my giant update: I made it almost 10 hours before running out of money and I was so happy to be able to help so many people.  Even more wonderful was how often I’d go to fill a list and find it was already filled.  Thank you.  Thank you on behalf of the hundreds and hundreds of kids who will have a present to open this year because of you.

Usually we make it to day two or three before it starts to get frustrating and you start to see people asking for crazy amounts of things but this year things got crazy a little quicker.  I tried to delete lists where people asked for more than the limits but so I’m exhausted so right now I’m going to just put a big BUYER BEWARE sign out and  say that there are probably a lot of wonderful people in the comments who still need help and are asking for a children’s book or a doll and if you can find those people you should help them.  But be careful.  Click on the filters to see what’s already been bought.  Ignore the lists that are insanely long.  Or just skip the lists and donate to Project Night Night.  Or Toys for Tots.  Or buy toys yourself and drop then off at your local shelter or domestic abuse center.

I’m feeling a little cynical right now but I’m going to shake that off because I am lucky to be able to help every child I helped.  I’m lucky to not have to worry this year, although I know each year is precarious and fragile.  I’m lucky to be surrounded by wonderful people who care and I’m lucky to not be in such a desperate spot that I make questionable decisions.

So tonight I’m going to shake off the frustration and instead say, “thank you.”  Thank you to everyone who helped, who asked for help, who felt a stir in their heart.  I am so lucky.

And if you happen to have gotten much more than your share of presents, don’t feel guilty.  I don’t want that.  Those presents are yours to do with as you choose. And if you happen to have asked for far more than you should have, perhaps consider giving those extra presents to a shelter.  Bundle your kids up and take them with you.  Feel good about giving.  Teach your kids how great it feels.  Because it does.  I promise.

********************

 

TODAY IS THE NINTH ANNUAL JAMES GARFIELD XMAS MIRACLE, Y’ALL.

Nine years of giving toys to kids who might not otherwise get presents.  That’s insane.  Almost as insane as the fact that this all began with a giant dead boar named James Garfield.

James Garfield and I love you.

The backstory: Nine years ago I bought a very jolly but kinda f-ed up boar head (named James Garfield)  and Victor thought I was crazy so I sold some homemade Xmas cards to make up the $90 I paid for him but I made so much I decided to give the money back to parents struggling to buy a toy for their kid.

It went quickly but as soon as I ran out of cash a ton of other people stepped up and asked if they could send toys to strangers and it grew into a weird but lovely tradition.

Each year I think will be the last year but each year people who were helped in the past ask if we’ll do it again so they can give back.  For those who like something easier you can give to Project Night Night, a brilliant organization that provides a book, stuffed animal and security blanket to kids experiencing homelessness, and also to Heifer because it’s nice to be able to donate the ass end of a water buffalo on the behalf of relatives that you don’t really like.

The JGXM is one of my favorite things ever but it only works if people follow the rules and this year they’re going to be a little stricter so that we can make sure to help as many people as possible.  PLEASE read all the rules and directions because if you don’t I may have to delete your post and that would suck for everyone.

  • The JGXM is for all children (under age 18) so if you are a parent and you’re struggling this year and don’t know how you’re going to buy you kid a present you can make and submit one wishlist with presents for your kids.  The limit is $35 per kid so please don’t ask for more than that because otherwise we can’t help as many children.
  • The only exception to the $35 limit is if you have a child that really needs a new coat.  Then you can add that as well.
  • Do not delete your list after it’s been filled and don’t delete anything that’s been bought.  It messes up the process.
  • On Friday after lots of the lists have been filled you can come back and add more things to your list if you still need food/pajamas/etc.
  • I’m going to go through the details of setting up a list but here are the two things that you really need to catch so I’ll say them twice.  Only add things that are “PRIME”.  Not only will this make sure you get your toy before Xmas but also most non-Prime sellers won’t ship to wishlist addresses.  And you have to set up a brand new wishlist for this which means you MUST go in and assign a shipping address specifically to this new list or it won’t work.  Every year hundreds of people forget to do this and it’s so frustrating for them and for the people who can’t help them.

Okay, let’s get started!

If you’re in need here is what you need to do.  Please follow each step:

1.Create a list.  (On Amazon, when you’re logged in you should see “Accounts & Lists”.  Click that and choose “Create a List.”

create a list

2.  Choose “wish list”.  Name your list.  Make sure it’s “public”.

3.  Go shopping.  Pick the thing ($35  limit) you want for each child and click on the “Add to List” dropdown button to add it to your list.  Please don’t make a separate list for each child.  Just make one list for all of them.  Please click here to see an example of what it should look like when it’s done.

Add to wishlist

4.  After your list is complete click on “add comment, quantity & priority” to add a comment about which things are for which kids and what age they are.  (You can just use their initials if you want.)

Add comment telling us who the gift is for

5.  This is the part people screw up the most.  YOU MUST assign a shipping address to your wishlist.  It’s kept private so all we see is the name of your city when we send you stuff.  See how it says “None” in the shipping address box below?  Don’t do that.  Click on it and add your address.    Delete the “Don’t Spoil my surprises” check box.  Makes sure NONE of the check boxes on the bottom are checked before you save changes.  This is so important.

6.  Go to “Manage lists” and check again.  Does it show your shipping address?  Are all of the boxes unchecked?  Awesome.  Save changes.  Copy the page address and come back here to the comments.

7.  Your comment should state how many kids you have, their ages, and THE CITY YOUR PRESENTS ARE GOING TO.  This is important because if you’re from Canada, for example, I can’t buy for you without paying extra for shipping but there will be people from Canada looking for other Canadians to help and it makes it easier to match up.  It’s also necessary because if your city doesn’t match what the gift registry says at checkout we can tell there’s a mistake and not send your gifts to the wrong person.  (It happens.)

8.  Do not feel bad about asking for help.  I suspect all of us (including myself) have been in tough economic situations before and for most of us this is such a wonderful gift to be able to give.  In fact, many of the people who come here to donate received help in the past.  One day you will pay it forward.

9. One out of 1,000 people will try to game the system here.  Please don’t be that person.  There’s a limited amount of money so please don’t take away from other children.

10.  Be happy and accept my thanks for letting us make this happen.

If you want to donate:

  1. Find a wishlist.  Buy what you want.  Proceed to checkout.  A page will ask you to choose a shipping address and it’ll probably default to your address so make sure you change it to their address.  Usually it’s the first address under “Other addresses” and it’ll say something like “_________’s gift registry address”.  On the next page it’ll give you the city it’s being shipped to so you can make sure you have the right address that matches the comment.  If they don’t match or you aren’t given an address then they probably made a mistake.   Delete everything in your cart and try another list.
  2. Very rarely someone will ask for more than the limits.  If that happens I’ll try to delete their post but just be aware that there’s a lot of trust needed to do this so no worries if it’s not for you.  I try to delete anyone that I can tell is gaming the system but I also try to give people the benefit of the doubt, especially when young children are involved.  If you have doubts, skip them.
  3. Be happy and accept my thanks for letting us make this happen.

If the amount of blind trust on this is a bit much for you then a FANTASTIC alternative is Project Night Night, which I cannot recommend enough.  Last week I put my Bloggess Calendar up for sale and already $1,400 has been raised to help them help children.  You did that.  Thank you.

Another quick thing…the money I spend each year on helping kids come directly from you.  From advertisers, from people who buy my books, or use my links.  If you are a part of this community, know that today I will be giving out over $5,000 in toys because of you.  I am so incredibly lucky to be a part of this community.

Okay…let’s do this.

2nd UPDATE:  Day 2.

I love you guys so much. Sorry I got snippy last night. I was a little exhausted and overwhelmed and I always panic at how many people won’t be helped. I think next year I’m going to finally accept all the wonderful offers of help that you guys always give. Something automated perhaps, so that the wish lists can be approved first and we can make sure that people include all the info they need and that people aren’t asking for to little or too much. I know it can be complicated and I’m sorry about that. Thanks so much for being so amazing and patient.

I’m going to see if I can find some more cash and maybe drop some more gifts late this afternoon. Love!

  6.         Due to my teenage son attempting to commit suicide and him needing to be in the hospital for several weeks, I missed a lot of work. After that I have been back and forth a lot with doctors visits and therapists and missing even more work so its been a pretty tight November and December. I do not know even how we will afford Christmas this year. I have a few small things I purchased early in the year but that's it.
    

    I have three kids. My oldest is 16 and he loves music, photography, running, and stuff like that. He cares a lot about his appearance due to bullying and self-esteem. My middle is 8 and he likes books, superheroes, slugterra, ninjago, and math. My youngest is 5 and she likes pretty princesses and pink. She also loves to read. I also have my niece that is 17 that lives with us but she is not expecting much due to her age

    is their list which is an older list and has a bunch of stuff on it. The newer stuff has hats and gloves and stuff. I appreciate any help that you can give. We live in Alabaster.

  8.         Hi Everyone!
    

    This is hard. My husband, son, and I moved to be nearer to some family members who are older and need help.

    I took a job with poorer pay to get us moved here. Moves are expensive. I’m working 3 jobs (1 full time, 2 part time), and my husband is working one very full time job.

    Things will get better, but this holiday will be rough for my 6 year old son, who is sweet and does not complain about our circumstances.

    I don’t mind a lean holiday for myself, and my husband doesn’t usually want gifts anyways. But when my son matter-of-factly says that we might not have Christmas because ‘we’re poor now,’ I feel like a pretty big failure.

    I think maybe I wasn’t clear. You cannot share a list with more than the $35 per kid request (plus coats if needed) or I will delete you. I know a lot of you just want to give options but the problem is that if you give a list with $300 worth of stuff on it and one person buys you $35 worth of toys for your kid the next person won’t know that you’re already bought for and then you end up with hundreds of dollars of toys and other kids get none. So don’t do that, okay?

  17.         If anybody could help my kids out this Christmas it would be so appreciated. This year I lost my job and quickly ran out unemployment (due to being out of workforce for five years with a little I wasn't eligible for much.) Their father and I split as well and he will not contribute. Ridesharing has become my sole income for now, but somebody hit me and I was barred for three weeks until repairs were completed.  Unfortunately two of those were the busiest of the year, and now the students in our college town are packing and going home until January while I struggle to bring bills up to date. Needless to say, the holiday budget is zero. I have a 15 year old son and 7 year old daughter, along with a few that are newly independent. Lists posted below, Happy Holidays. :)

  19. Life’s been a little rough this year. My husband is quite a bit older than me and has had health issues this year. He had a stroke in September and was admitted to the hospital and they found out he also has an enlarged heart. In November he was admitted to the hospital for severely low oxygen. He has since been diagnosed with moderate COPD and severe sleep apnea. His health has interfered with work and our finances are suffering as a result. We are behind on all of our bills, it’s depressing but we have each other for support. I just really want my kiddos to have a good Christmas despite everything. I KNOW there’s a lot on this list and I’m not expecting all of it AT ALL! I just added what they have asked for and would be grateful to even get a couple for each child 🙂 thank you so very for all you are doing! Merry Christmas 🎄 ps. I added a few gift cards for my niece, she is only able to wear justice clothes due to sizing and they aren’t cheap. My oldest sister took custody of her and her brother and they can’t afford a lot for them so I though I would try to lighten the load for them. Thank you again. HUGS
    -like I said there is a lot on my list but I panicked and didn’t know what to put on it, I am NOT asking to receive everything on it at all 🙂 my kids would be happy with whatever they are blessed with under the tree.

Only thing I would add is shop at Amazon via this address:  https://smile.amazon.com/ - when you do, Amazon makes a donation to the charity of your choice (when you sign in, you'll be prompted to set up an organization).  There is NO ADDITIONAL COST to you - it's all just a nice thing done by Amazon.  So hey, this way your gift benefits a charity AND the JGXM family!

  28.         Hi everyone,
    

    I am a single adoptive mother of four. This has been a tough year for my family as I was diagnosed with a chronic condition that has kept me out of work on FMLA on an off for over a year. I live in constant pain that makes it difficult for me to parent my children and do fun things with them lately. All of whom have special needs (cognitive and behavioral). The guilt I feel is immense. This year, I am desperately asking for help with coats and a few Christmas gifts for my kids as I have not worked in nearly a month and Christmas doesn’t look so good for us. I am scheduled for surgery at the end of January to relive and I hope to find some relief in that. In the interim, I hope to give my children whatvthry deserve the most- a good Christmas. They deserve it. Please consider helping us if you can.

    Merry Christmas, all. 💕 Milwaukee, WI

  33.         I've helped in the past but this year we really needed help. This year sucked for us and our now six minis. It's been one disaster to another. Medical disaster one after another. Bed rest, uterine rupture and a hospitalized newborn. We are having a hard time keeping the heat on and feeding everyone. We would love help with some gifts and I also added some necessities like coats and one pair of boots. Anything would be greatly appreciated. I hope this time next year we are gifting instead of asking for help.

  46.         I have had the joy of giving in the name of J.G. and have also had the absolute joy in receiving. I won't feel bad this year.
    

    Moved across the country twice this year. And I just landed my dream job in non-profit community mental health, but getting paid pennies, as it goes.

    I don’t think the kiddos would appreciate a wrapped up gas bill or grocery receipt.

    Here are some gifts that I think would blow them away. Luckily, they aren’t media/video game kids, so simple gifts make their tiny hearts soar.

    This big family of 6 live in Eugene Oregon. We have 4 kids, Gabriel (8), Sebastian (6), Theodore (4) and Hattie (2).

    Here is our list: http://a.co/0u78cMj

    Thank you for considering our giant family and thank you from the bottom of my very grateful heart!

  48.         Several years ago I was fortunate enough to have been on the receiving end of this incredible event. Since then, many changes have surrounded our family (good and bad) and now I find myself back here in hopes of a little help this season.
    

    I have 5 kids. 4 was the end but then surprise! That’s part of what makes this year so tough to manage and why I’m hoping for a bit of help. The older 4 are basically all teenagers and well aware of the fact that things are tight and thus aren’t expecting anything. I just want to be able to surprise them with a little Christmas joy 🙂

    I tried to stay within parameters but I know prices and availability can change so I’ll try to keep up to date on everything and change/remove as needed.

    Thank you from all of us!

  52.         I think I have fixed this. I just had my old list on there and its hard to delete on my phone but I think I got it all.
    

    Due to my teenage son attempting to commit suicide and him needing to be in the hospital for several weeks, I missed a lot of work. After that I have been back and forth a lot with doctors visits and therapists and missing even more work so its been a pretty tight November and December. I do not know even how we will afford Christmas this year. I have a few small things I purchased early in the year but that’s it.

    I have three kids. My oldest is 16 and he loves music, photography, running, and stuff like that. He cares a lot about his appearance due to bullying and self-esteem. My middle is 8 and he likes books, superheroes, slugterra, ninjago, and math. My youngest is 5 and she likes pretty princesses and pink. She also loves to read. I also have my 17 niece but she isnt expecting anything due to her age.

    is their list. I appreciate any help that you can give. We are in Alabaster.

  56.         I am a mom to 4 kids, in the UK. I'm married, because I don't have a choice. In the UK, getting a divorce is harder than it is in the states. There isn't the no fault divorce here. I'm also an American living in the UK. That also makes it hard. Two of my children are from a previous marriage, and two are twins from my current marriage. If I did divorce my husband, he'd have to give me permission to go back to the states with the twins. He won't. Why am I speaking divorce? Because we live in a house full of mental abuse. My husband gaslights me, frequently, trying to make sure my memories are always questioned. Earlier this year, one of the twins got the stomach flu. It started at 11pm. I had gotten 2 hours sleep at this point. I got up with him. He was 18 months old, about. It was the night before the first day of summer vacation. My older two stayed up with me. We were in the middle of a heat wave. My washing machine was broken. At 5am, my 10yo girl started getting sick. At 10, my 13yo boy started getting sick. At 130pm, I started getting sick. The only person no sick was the other toddler twin. I think because he threw up 2 days previous. So, my husband comes home. I've not cleaned. I ask my mil to come get the laundry. My husband tells me to go to bed. I do, as I've been awake way too long. My husband keeps waking me up, asking where garbage bags were, where cleaning supplies were. Here in the UK, you keep all your food waste in a separate bin. Due to the heatwave, we suddenly had maggots. My mil took the twins. Her and my husband decided to call social services on me. She stated until social services stated my house was safe, she wasn't giving them back. She didn't take the older two. I was so sick that night, but all I could do was cry. Betrayed by my husband, by my mil. The next day, my husband went to work, and I called our health visitor. She'd just done a home visit. She knew my house wasn't filthy. She told me to get my kids back, that my mil kidnapped them. I had to threaten to call the police to get them back. Social services sent someone in. Instead of them being concerned about my house's cleanliness, they worried about the calls they had gotten from NICU (twins were born at 29 weeks) stating I was emotionally abused. They worried about the calls from early help, stating I was mentally abused. They talked to me. They talked to my kids. They wanted us in a shelter, ASAP. But we have no recourse to public funds. Next year that law will change. Domestic violence help won't be considered public funds.
    

    They told me to get ready to escape, the minute I had a chance. But I’m a stay at home mom. I don’t have any money. I can’t get passports. Not for any of my 4 kids, and they all need them. There is a gofundme set up for trying to get the kids their citizenship and their passports. I don’t have enough yet.

    It also means I don’t hate bought money for Christmas presents. My husband won’t give me money, as he says the kids don’t deserve any with their behaviour, and the twins won’t remember. We have no decorations. I explain this to the older two that next year we will, because next year the boys won’t destroy everything.

    My plan has been to asave money from what he gives me for groceries, and spend it at Poundland for the kids for some presents. I’m also making them coupon books, giving them time with me, or coupons that can be used at the £3 theater later on, stuff I can save for. Social services has gotten one present for each of the older two, stating the twins are too young to know any better. They are also giving us a food basket, to help me save a little to buy a few presents.

    I hate knowing my kids are emotionally abused. My older two are. I know it. I talk to them about it. I tell them if I could escape, if I could get us out, I would. They are aware that we have people coming to our house, trying to get us out of our situation. Social services thinks my mil calling them was an attempt to make me look like a bad parent for when I try to escape. She is constantly telling me I’m not allowed to take the twins to America to visit.

    I hate begging for help. But my kids don’t deserve to not have Christmas. I could use the gofundme money and give them Christmas, but that money was earned for passports and getting the twins American citizenship. I don’t even have half of what I need, so I’m not even touching that.

    So I’m grateful to any help I can get. I’m grateful that this event even happens.

    My eldest is my 13yo son. He is amazing, helps me so much. Right now my husband is screaming at me because between this year and last, mostly last, while I was in the hospital, he missed 8 days of school. So now we have a £120 truancy bill. If it’s not paid by January 7th, it can go to £1000. I don’t know how to pay it. My husband told my son that that’s where all his Christmas present money is going. Him and his sister’s. So he feels guilty over that. He loves games and anime and origami and math.

    My daughter is 9. She loves sewing and cooking and crafts. She adores slime. She is my mad scientist.

    One of my twins is a climber. They are 21 months but neither has a lot of words. The non climber just started walking everywhere. They need clothes, they’ve had a major growth spurt. To say they were tiny is an understatement, they are 21 months, and I’m about to start buying 12-18 month old clothes. At least we are off oxygen this winter.

The kids have the things they need, V would starve before letting her kids go without, but there isn’t a lot of money left for fun. Chris gets it, he is kind and selfless and deserves a better christmas than we can give him. Ryan is just a baby, that pretty much explains it all, lol. So I humbly and with immense gratitude ask for your help. I’ve included a game/toy and a book for each kid.

    My husband and I have 3 kids, ages 12, 11, and 6. We are from WV. We have hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills for our 6 year old. Not complaining, because we are truly blessed, he is in remission from leukemia and he is doing great. Because of neurocognitive issues (side effect of chemo) he doesn’t remember celebrating Christmas before this year (and doesn’t remember much of anything before this year actually). We are excited to be celebrating his 1st Christmas (haha) this year… we would love to make it special for all the kids because his siblings have been an amazing support for him. Thank you all. ❤ God bless, I hope you all have a great Christmas.

  79.         I am writing on behalf of a young soon-to-be Mom that I know.  She is expecting twin girls in January.  This past weekend a kind coworker hosted a baby shower for her and literally 1 person showed up for the shower.  She suffers from PTSD and is bipolar, and was beyond humiliated and embarrassed, just devastated emotionally and feeling very alone and unloved.  She has no close family or support system to rely on as her parents died as the result of an auto accident when she was very, very young.  At 16 her then foster father was convicted of repeatedly raping her and was sent to prison.  While unplanned, she has accepted – no, embraced – her pregnancy and the prospect of becoming a mother herself.  These children are her everything, her hope for creating a family of her own.  The father (not the foster father, btw) has not been involved since she announced her pregnancy.  She will be okay.  She is beautiful, resilient and strong.  She has so much love to give, but limited resources.  It is my hope that, in the spirit of Christmas, we could come together as a group and shower her and the babies with some of the things she had on her (untouched) registry.  I have been shaken by her story and don’t have the resources myself to buy what she needs.  I am hoping that this global community of kind strangers can help, and, in the process, make her feel loved and supported.  Jenny, if this is not allowed, please delete.

            The last year has been especially rough on our family. An accident changed our world forever and an unexpected lay off made things even more disastrous. Keeping food on the table and utilities in service has become a sometimes impossible challenge, so just the thought of the kids’ Christmas brings me to panicky tears. Any help we receive will be an incredible blessing.
    

    We have five children. W is the oldest, he will be 18 at the first of the year. He is both physically and mentally disabled, so toys are not on our radar, but rather keeping him clothed and comfy. He’s our big, sweet boy who has an infectious smile and LOVES Disney movies. Next are the girls, M and N, 16 and different as night and day. M is our make-up loving bookworm who plans on being a teacher. N was clearly meant to be a grunge era teen, is a sarcastic tomboy, and plans on being a doctor. A will be 15 right before Christmas, poor kid. He is autistic, has a brilliant mind, and loves to figure out how things work. When asked what he wants to be as an adult, his standard reply is Albert Einstein. D is the youngest, sure that he’s a grown up at 10. He loves construction and creating things and wants to be an astronaut/cop/architect.

    Thank you for considering our family! Wishing you all the happiest of holidays!

    Hi Everyone! I am actually fine not getting anything for Christmas, but I have a last minute beautiful foster child who is not going to be receiving anything from her biological family, and since she was such a late placement, I was unable to sign her up for any holiday assistance and it will be a few weeks before we begin receiving funds from the state to take care of her. If anyone is feeling generous and would like to help me make sure she has things to open under the tree on Christmas morning, we would be so very grateful! Thank you!

  96.         We have 6 kids between 2 &amp; 11.  My husband has worked really hard but we are still coming up short. Our littlest had several surgeries this year. This will be his first year to actually see for Christmas. I added gloves &amp; hats instead of a coat because my kids hands are chapped raw  from riding the bus &amp; waiting on the bus in the cold &amp; they have coats but not those things. If that’s not ok I will delete them.

    I live paycheck to paycheck, literally, and rarely can afford presents or fun stuff for my kids. When Christmas comes around I always feel like such a crappy mom because I can’t get my kids the stuff they want, or need (clothes, shoes, etc..) I know that things aren’t important, but it still hurts to see them disappointed. Long story short, this miracle helps my kids have a Christmas they wouldn’t be able to have otherwise, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    I have three sweet babies, Bella (age 8), Sebastian (age 4, almost 5) and Violet (age 3). Bella loves board games, reading, and horses. Sebastian loves dinosaurs, Pokemon, and acting like he’s actually 14, not 4. (god help me). Violet loves animals, monster trucks, and sparkly stuff. She’s the perfect mixture of girly and tomboy.

    PS: Everything on the list from the clothes up is for this and everything below is my general Christmas wishlist.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    Hi Jenny,

    A few years ago during The James Garfield Miracle, a bunch of amazing people helped me provide warm coats and toys for children at the elementary school where I was a social worker. This year, I’ve made a similar wishlist, but for children of families at the nonprofit where I volunteer. The nonprofit is called Juntos (which means “together” in Spanish :), and they provide support for Latino immigrants and refugees. Given the current political climate, it felt important to me to find a quantifiable and tangible way to help. I am hoping that my wishlist will help Juntos’s neediest families give gifts to their children this year.

    My Amazon wishlist does fit all of your requirements – nothing is over $35. However, the list is for about 50 children (all of whom I consider partly “my own”, because I love them, hehe.) and therefore may not fit within your stricter requirements this year. If it’s not okay to post this, please do delete my comment. ❤

    This is the link to the wishlist: http://a.co/0eWovWQ

    Happy Holidays!

I have kept gifts to the lowest possible price so they can get more for the budget set. Thank you and merry Christmas to everyone xx

This would give my kids a couple of new things under the tree. I have 3 teenagers.  My oldest is 17 and a senior in high school.  My middle son is 15 and is a sophomore in high school.  My youngest girl is 13 and is in junior high.  We live in Arizona.  It's not super cold here, so the jackets I picked are not heavy, but it's nicer than what they have at the moment.  I haven't been able to buy many new things for them this past year.  You are all truly amazing people- and I will pay it forward one day in any way I can.  Thank you, Jenny and the readers for helping people that really need it.

            Trying again Hi everyone. This has been a year for many of us. I have 3 severely mentally ill children. We always have our hands full but this year has been unreal. Our middle girl with schizophrenia became very unstable in March and still is. Our son with autism is adjusting to puberty starting. My friends young adult child had a beautiful daughter who is 11 months old and they will be with us a couple months while in between places. And best yet ,total sarcasm, in April my husband was in a car accident thank goodness he is ok but we never were able to get a new vehicle and by the time he was able to go back to work and had transportation his job of 15 years fired him. He is still trying to find a job with no luck! I would not care about anything under the tree except the two youngest because of their disabilities still have a lower mentality then chronological age think Santa is coming and bringing everyone gifts as long as you are good. If anyone can help us give them a Christmas we would be forever grateful!

I just added what they have asked for and would be grateful to even get one for each child 🙂 thank you so very for all you are doing! Merry Christmas 🎄 ps. I added a few gift cards for my niece, she is only able to wear justice clothes due to sizing and they aren’t cheap. My oldest sister took custody of her and her brother and they can’t afford a lot for them so I though I would try to lighten the load for them. Thank you again!!

  151.         Single mom, working full time, no child support and barely making ends meet. Have had to ask for help even with electricity so it wouldn't be turned off. My son is so excited about Christmas and Santa coming, but I have nothing to go under the tree, much less a tree at all. I took a new job in hopes that I will make more, but all it's done so far is mess up my pay and I have to go 3 weeks without a paycheck. One year I'll be able to participate as a giver as I don't like having to ask for help. But, I'll do anything for my little guy! Thank you for your help!

  155. katbalog – comment 51 – My teenage son was also in the hospital for a suicide attempt this year. I got the workout bar, but it wouldn’t let me add a gift message. I hope that you all are doing better. We have been blessed by the James Garfield Miracle twice, and we’re finally doing well enough to get a few things for people. So, when I read about your son, I had to get him something.

    Having a child in that situation is the worst feeling in the whole world. My son is doing better now, I will pray for your family. Merry Christmas!

  171.         Hi everyone
    

    My name is Jamesha. I am a mother of three girls Marissa, Kylie and Trisha. Marissa is 9, Kylie is 5 and Trisha is 7. Kylie has been undergoing cancer treatments since July after we found an unexplainable growth on her scalp. I can’t sugar coat how horrible of a year it has been for our family. To see my daughter constantly in pain hurts me deeply as a parent. I’ve been on my own and caring for my little girls since they were born and I honestly feel helpless at this point. I don’t have money to give them the Christmas I’m sure that they would like. But we do have each other and I know that means a lot too. Two of my daughters really need coats and are walking around in thick sweatshirts. I know that is sad of me to admit as a parent but Kylie’s medical bills have been piling up. They really need coats.

    I want to say thank you in advance for whomever finds it in their heart to help our family.

    Hello all- this is seriously my favorite thing EVER. Every year reading the comments and stories and thanks and love makes this holiday a bit warmer. I have two teenagers here in Ohio.

    Lydia- 17 bookworm, in college in her dorm until I steal her back Saturday. She’s goofy and unique and a chatterbox who loves to cocoon and read until I throw food her way.

    Scott- Mr. Social Athlete who never stops moving. He runs, he works on jet skis, he plays football, he cuts firewood. He’s kind of my little boy hero except that he just OUTGREW ME AND I’M NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT. Ok. I am happy he’s a growing, healthy kid. The bugger.

    We’re doing decent this year with the exception of kidney surgery (Lydia), knee surgery (Scott), and back surgery (me) and a mountain of medical bills that I’ve put in a pile and glare at on a regular basis.

    You all are truly the best. Thank you. Much love to you and your families this year.

    Our lives have been drastically changed this year. My wife passed away and I am trying to do everything on my own from juggling work, therapy and the kids extra curricular school activities. She was the one who took them to school, doctors, etc and also held a job. I’m not one that asks for help and always try to do things on my own but I’ve quickly realized that it’s impossible. I’m reaching out to anyone today that can help me give my kids a happy Christmas as they have been through a lot and my oldest daughter that is 10 has turned into her mom trying to do everything she did. I wish I could give them the world on my own. I have listed different things they wanted on Amazon. Not everything needs to be purchased but I posted to give ideas of what they want. Thank you and God Bless in advance . Merry Christmas to all!

    This year has been a rollercoaster for me. After years of struggling, last year I finally worked up the nerve to talk to my doctors at our local Veteran’s Hospital about my depression and anxiety. Thank you, Jenny, and bloggers like you who aren’t afraid to make that conversation normal. Anyway, at the beginning of this year I finally started to feel human again with really healthy emotions and so I started job searching. My husband has shouldered a huge burden taking care of the five us us while I worked through all of this. I finally got hired at a dream job for me. I’m the newest librarian at our local library! Mentally and physically, I’m not able to work for more than 10 hours a week but it is a start that i’m really proud of. I made it a goal to buy a small gift for Christmas or birthdays with every one of my tiny paychecks. Unfortunately this fall an electrical fire destroyed my garage and my little stash of gifts was out there. I’m grateful we’re all safe. I’m grateful I have so far been strong enough to keep my head above the waters trying to pull me back down. But my poos older kids had to use all their money from their summer jobs to help us get through this and pay for things they shouldn’t have had to.I want to be able to put some thing under the tree so they know how grateful I am.

    A is a 16 year old young lady who had a rough go of it this year when a friend outed her as bisexual without her permission and her first relationship crumbled because of it. this years had to pay her own way through band camp. She expresses herself through photography and i picked out a nice little accessory kit for her polaroid style camera.

    L is a 14 year old boy. He’s very driven and got a job at our local amusement park so he could start saving to be an exchange student in Denmark for his junior year. Instead, he bought his own sneakers and uniform for basketball. He loves puzzles and games so I chose a cold puzzle I think he’d like.

    J is a 5 year old boy who is just excited about the magic of the holiday and unaware of what troubles we’ve face. he loves dinosaurs and cars and I found a racetrack that combines the two.

    If you can help even with one gift, I would be so grateful. We live in Northwestern PA for shipping purposes.

    They recently fled their home due to domestic violence and could use some comfort this year. Not to get too detailed with their circumstances, but Mom is beginning employment after not being “allowed” outside contact, makeup, et cetera for years. Because of this she is very self conscious. I would love to “adopt” them for Christmas, but can not afford to provide more than stockings and a temporary spare room. The local programs require sign up a few months ahead so they missed that already. It would be wonderful to be able to put some packages under the tree for them. God bless.

            Okay I apparently am having reading comprehension issues. Let me try this again.
    

    I have one six year old daughter. I’m a single mom. We live with my parents, but they will be at the beach (wtf?!) for Christmas this year, so I’ve borrowed money to fly to family in Wisconsin to be with them on Christmas day (we live in the Southeastern United States). For shipping purposes, we’ll be in Wisconsin.
    My company has downsized and my role got slashed to part time in the spring, and it has been more difficult than I thought it would be to keep my head above water (and to find another job, oddly enough). I have Primary Selective Immunodeficiency (Type IgA), so there are a lot of days where I’m sick or exhausted or whatever when I’d much rather be super mom. As hard as it is to ask for some help, I guess maybe my super power right now is admitting that I need some help.
    Emory, my daughter, loves graphic novels. She is newly into Harry Potter and loves it. She loves her cat and her three fish she won at the fair, and she loves Narwhals. If anyone wants to help at all, I will never ever forget the kindness shown here. And if our list isn’t chosen, I’ll still always think of the amazing hearts of the folks in this community.

    Hi, It’s another crazy tight year here.
    I managed to save for 2 small gifts for each of my kids. Ordered them pre-strike and now they are caught up in the Canada Post post-strike backlog. I don’t even know if they’ll make it before the 25.:( Combined with some messed up new logic that my disability worker had in November to split my benefits into bi-weekly vs once a month and I’m not able to catch a break to even cover bills since I have to pay more for fewer things in 2 grocery shops vs bulk shopping in 1.

    Wow. That rambles. But my kids… my kids are amazing and are my sunshine. DS is 10, has autism, and is currently obsessed with using chopsticks, and truly wants the Lego Star Wars advent that is sold out locally.
    DD is 17, and refuses to ask for anything. But she desperately needs a coat and backpack with working zippers.

    We have a temporary guest of a would be homeless pregnant teen this year. They’ve got a complicated story and I’ve got no issue going hungry if it means they don’t.I didn’t include them because I don’t know their needs yet.
    If you made it this far- bless your heart. Any help is truly appreciated and will be paid forward! Thank you.

  213. Just to reiterate, I will delete any lists asking for more than $35 per kid (not including coats if needed). Do not fill lists asking for more than the amount because then some kids get a ton of stuff and others get nothing. I know a lot of you are doing it because you want to give options but it’s too easy to have lots of people fill your lists without realizing you’ve already been helped.

    Also, please don’t forget to include your city in your comment.

    One other thing, if you try to buy something and Amazon says it’s a duplicate then it’s already bought. Delete and try another list. 🙂

    Thanks so much!

  232. This popped into my inbox, and I broke a little. I wanted so much to be able to help this year, to pay it forward for others. Sadly, this year has not been kind to us, my husband struggled with manic depression and bipolar disorder his whole life, in June, he committed suicide and our family has been devasted by this loss, not just emotionally and mentally, but financially as well. I am struggling to keep the roof over our heads and pay off the funeral expenses. I don’t want the girls first Christmas without their dad to be an empty, joyless day. I’m once again putting myself at the mercy of strangers, help my girls, they don’t deserve the cards that life has dealt them. They haven’t asked for anything specific, so I added things that I know they could use.

    I’ve made one list for both girls, mostly its socks and underwear, warm hat for Cici, cheap shoes for Hazel, she’s outgrown everything she owns this year. Cici is my artistic nerd, so there are supplies she’s run out of or mentioned. Hazel is harder being my girly girl, but I added a few things that I hope to make her smile.

    My girls are 12 and 15, and we now live in a tiny town called Harrison Arkansas.

    Hi, everyone!

    I’m a single mom of one (an 8-year-old son). We live in a small town called Searcy, Arkansas.

    My son and I love playing board games and reading together. There aren’t a ton of games out there that are designed for just 2 players, but I did find one that has tons of great reviews that sounds like it would be fun for us. I also found a fully illustrated print version of an audiobook we have been listening to. We’d love to have either of these!

    Here’s our list: https://www.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/3LCY75Y5E664H

    Note: When I added the book to our list, I thought it was $14.99, which would have put the total right under $35. However, it turns out THAT is the price for the ebook. 😦 The physical book is $2 more right now (it’s usually $39.99 from the looks of it, so this is a super sale!), so the total came out to $36.89. We’d be happy with the ebook version since we do have a Kindle Fire, but the print book would be amazing! I hope that’s ok. I saw that we’re not supposed to go over $35 and am not sure if the print book’s pricing messes that up.

    Anyways, thanks for doing this! Even if we aren’t picked, it makes me happy knowing that so many families will have one less thing to worry about this year. 😀

    I’m so glad you’re doing this again this year, it was honestly a lifesaver last year. I was hoping to be able to be an elf this year instead of a recipient, but I had a bit of a surprise pop up- she is due in just a few weeks 💓 So, working extra hours has been a bit tough to do lately. But, I officially only have one more semester and I will be a college graduate, so I know next year I will be in a much better place, thank goodness!

    I have a 14 year old boy whose life revolves around clothes, basketball, and making music, an 8 year old boy who really wants an easy bake oven “Even though my friends think that’s for girls, but that’s dumb.” dude… It’s snacks. How can you gender a snack? And baby girl Deja is due the 31st (please come sooner I am literally going to explode and OMG the swelling and heartburn heeellllp)
    I put a few things the boys asked for, and a few things I could really use for the baby.

  247.         Fingers crossed and pride shelved, I’m here with the absolute best of intentions.
    

    I lost my job this summer but I’ve since found good, steady employment. Unfortunately, the months in between caused a lot of debt and hard times for myself and my four kids. I ended up having to move back in with my parents in my hometown. I was very worried about providing this year but then remembered that I was part of this last year and was relieved and grateful to see it happening again.

    Luckily for me, my kids (girls age 11 and 14 and boys 13 and 17) aren’t expecting much so it makes things much easier. I just feel like a failure when I can’t even put much food on the table (we basically live on ramen and pbjs at the moment, wish this was a bit of a food drive lol) so gifts are a luxury that, if it weren’t for Jenny, we wouldn’t have.

    Here is what I put on my previous comment

    Due to my teenage son attempting to commit suicide and him needing to be in the hospital for several weeks, I missed a lot of work. After that I have been back and forth a lot with doctors visits and therapists and missing even more work so its been a pretty tight November and December. I do not know even how we will afford Christmas this year. I have a few small things I purchased early in the year but that’s it.

    I have three kids. My oldest is 16 and he loves music, photography, running, and stuff like that. He cares a lot about his appearance due to bullying and self-esteem. My middle is 8 and he likes books, superheroes, slugterra, ninjago, and math. My youngest is 5 and she likes pretty princesses and pink. She also loves to read.

  258.         Thank you so much for this opportunity every year -- both to get some help my family sorely needs, and to find little things we can still do to help others!  We're a family in NY with a 13 year old kiddo who has Autism Spectrum Disorder, a rather complex and pervasive case of Sensory Processing Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Seasonal Affective Disorder interplaying with the symptoms of all of the above, and something neuro-muscular they haven't been down....because apparently my being physically disabled wasn't challenging enough?  Eniways, he's pretty much the best human ever (even now that he's a teen!), and he deserves better than what this Christmas is serving up, which is a whole lot of stress over the fact that we need to buy a house by summer -- further complicated by the house needing to be accessible -- or we'll be homeless.  Wheeee!

  261.         Merry Christmas to the Bloggess Tribe from snowy Virginia ! I know Christmas is really all about the little ones, but I would like to request for a 17 year old. She is a senior graduating early (last day the 21st ! ) She will be finishing using homebound services due to severe anxiety, panic attacks and depression. We are praying she will be able to walk the stage come May/June with her graduating class. Either way , I am so proud of her ! Here is a list for her.  Thank you so much for considering her !

            Hi there! My son Taylor and I are going to be "just us" for Christmas for the firs ttime this year. I know people get better at this, but so far there's just no way for me to give him a Christmas this year. I am grateful to anyone who might be able to help us. I have never been on my own before, as I went straight from my dad to my husband to whatever "this" is, and I'm not quite sure how to do it all, but I hope to God I figure it out. Thank you if you are able to help in any way! :)

  268. We live in Milwaukee, WI. We are a family of 3 with a 5 year old and a 6 month old, both little boys. It was a hard year for us, as my pregnancy was complicated and I was out of work unpaid for most of the year and went into a lot of debt. I just want the boys to have a good Christmas. Jason is 5 and loves science and space. He is really into science experiments, mixing colors, reading at night and learning new things in general. He is high-functioning autistic, so his interests are strong but he can be a challenge for me, nevertheless he is an amazing and intelligent boy. Beige is a baby, he loves mirrors and is learning to sit up well, so we hope for things that catch his interest.

  269. Ok, this is me again, except not. Every year we try to help out my son’s best friend’s family (here in NY) because they seem to have even worse luck than we do, and fewer places to turn for help both because they are Muslim (and most offline charities are Christian-based, for that version of Christian which means you don’t love your neighbor as you’d love yourself) and because the Mom has no way of getting online. So, I have a separate list for them, for gift cards so that the kids — H-, age 13, and F-, age 12 — can pick out some new clothes for themselves instead of wearing whatever the closest thing that fits is, from what they can inherit from their cousins.

  285. I’ve thought very hard about whether or not to ask for help, hoping until the last minute that I’d be able to do something. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like that will be the case, so I’m going to go ahead and put our story out there.

    Hubby has MS and this year it got bad enough that he was let go from his teaching position. Eventually we lost our house. Now our family of 6 is crammed into two bedrooms at my father in law’s…and he does NOT want us here. We aren’t allowed to put up a Christmas tree or anything, so I wasn’t sure if we would celebrate at all. And then I thought, screw that! My boys deserve SOMETHING for Christmas, even if their scrooge of a grandfather doesn’t want to acknowledge it.

    We are hoping hubby’s disability claim goes through soon so we can get out of here, but until then, my meager salary is barely paying bills and treatment for hubby. I’ve limited the list to one book and one item that they need or want that can work in our very limited living space. My father in law is not easy to live with and all of us will be happier when we have other living arrangements. Until then…

    Thank you to anyone who is able to help. I know four kids is a lot to ask for presents for, but I’m hoping for something to open on Christmas day that I can pretend is from my husband and I.

    We’re in Miramar, Florida

            Hi everyone a friend of mine sent me here and I am hoping I can find a bit of holiday help for my kids. Two are teens and they are harder to shop for so I put 3-4 assorted items for each kid they only need one or two but it was just to give options to who ever wants to help. This year has been extra rough on us we went through a big family loss, loss of income and one of our teens had a bit of a breakdown due to feeling bullied over weight. The holiday is looking bleak and we can't afford to do anything this year any help would be appreciated.
    

    A bit about the kids. JT is seventeen, he helps look out for his siblings and helps with anything around the house without complaining and often does things without even being ask. He recently started a small part time job after school to help his mom out with bills and is wanting to start a career in the medical field in the future. He is in need of long sleeve shirts so I put a two pack on his list, the two comic books and game are options for him as well. LS is sixteen she is a big reader, likes to create things from scratch like cookies and cakes, she wants to be a baker and a photographer when she is older. She is slightly overweight and has been dealing with a lot this year, she had a bit of a breakdown earlier this year that was really hard on her and on us as a family. She needs and wants a new pair of shoes but the pair she really wants are too expensive for us, if she only received the shoes it would be alright. The writing set, light and face oil are also wishes of hers. C is 8 and he loves building, playing outside, catching bugs, reading and playing video games with his siblings. M is ten she loves reading, crafts, drawing and animals she wants to be a vet when she is older. Their wishlist is http://a.co/4OORu9V all of the kids will enjoy anything sent they all know times get tough and are alright with skipping Christmas this year if we end up not getting help, they all had been begging to go see the snow but we can’t afford a hotel either so I am just posting to see if each can get one or two gifts to make their holidays brighter thank you.

            Our family has been going through a really very difficult time since, well, when hasn't it? But, I thought this year would be better for Christmas, at least, as I try very hard to help supplement my husband's income by selling used clothing online, but it just never seems to be enough.
    

    My son is 16, his name is Bryan, which I know is old for this list compared to most kids, but he really does deserve a good Christmas. I know it’s not his fault for having a mom that can’t figure out how to get through a 90 day review without having an “ER Panic Attack” (what we call them in our family) and quitting her job in a split second decision, (I managed it twice this last year to get to the 90 day review, and some years I can’t do it all, so it is getting better, I think)

    I would be eternally grateful for any help with my sons’ list.

  315. Kris @56, I’ve picked one gift each for the elder two and one to share for the toddlers. I wish I could do more. I grew up in a home where Christmas was a nightmare because at any point from Dec 1st up to Christmas Day, we could expect my male DNA contributor to kick off and make us miserable. He gaslighted my mum and physically and emotionally abused all three of us. Get out of that situation as soon as you are able, my mum didn’t feel able to and then he left her 9 yrs ago and now she is happier than she’s been since she met him. This also means I no longer have to see him, which is awesome, but I just wish it had happened sooner so I could have been a kid and maybe not have all the negative voices still haunting me at age 48.

    I wish you and your kids all the best. You are doing the best that you can in a difficult situation, don’t let him tell you different. You are stronger and braver than you think and I hope you find the internal and external resources that you need to keep yourself and your kids safe.

  329.         Dear beautiful community: Every year, I am privileged to be a giver for this amazing, fantastic miracle. This year, I am asking for help. I work in refugee settlement services, helping newly arrived immigrants adjust to life in America. Most of them come here with nothing. This year, we created an Amazon Wish List for some of our clients and I am humbly asking for your help to bring educational toys to immigrant children in need. Our wish list includes some things above the $35 limit - please just ignore them (I can't edit the list). All gifts will arrive at our office in the Bay Area, which is why our list says "JFCS East Bay Families in Need." I swear on the plume of Beyonce and Juanita Weasel's apron that I am a long-time member of this community, and anything purchased from this wish list will go directly to children in need. Thank you all so much for making this the most wonderful miracle every year.
    

    With love, Ami Dodson, JFCS East Bay

    <strong>(I love this idea but unfortunately a TON of people are asking for giant lists of things for different charities and this isn't really what we do.  If you want to come back at the end of the week and add it when this is over you can though.  ~Jenny)</strong>

  333. I took in my sister and her three kiddos last month. They lost everything in a fire and have nothing. It’s been rough on them, compounded by the fact her middle daughter has sensory issues and this whole ordeal has been very traumatic for her. We are in desperate need for a new weighted blanket so her daughter can sleep at night, which hasn’t happened hardly at all since they have been here because it is a new, strange house. They are super expensive but I found the absolute cheapest one I could, hoping maybe for a miracle. The girls are sweet and scared and wondering if Santa will find them at our house and if he knows that they don’t have a house anymore. They love animals and games and to paint and color. Thank you for anyone who can help.

  334. Hi! I’m Rachel and I live in Rome, Georgia with my three beautiful kids, 15, 8 & 6. We have had a second half of the year that at times I wasn’t sure I could crawl out of. But, by the grace of God we did it, and while every day is a new day, every day is full of love and thanksgiving. The kids had each attended 3 different schools before mid September, and I was funneling through severe anxiety and depression behind any closed door I could find. The last five months have been a struggle I never thought I’d see. And, I wish upon wishes that my children see me with my head above the water, instead of the way I feel at times like I have no control.

    The first half of the year was positive, healthy an on what I thought was the right track. We moved in with my fiance in July, three weeks before the wedding, in order to get the kids settled in school. His true colors showed in anger, fists and foot kicks only eight days later. I had sold or donated almost everything we had to combine us into his fully furnished house. I almost left that first night, but the kids were sleeping, he was sorry, yada yada… On Day ten of our new “life together” (still pre marriage thankfully) it happened again when I got up in the middle of the night and accidentally woke him up. I got the kids to school, he left for work, and I called my brother. He came and got us and everything we still had and we left, eleven days before the wedding. I’m mortified that I ended up in that situation, but I’m thankful that this happened BEFORE we were married. I almost refused to move in until after the wedding.

    The kids and I returned to the town we had left just weeks prior with nowhere to live, very little money (he emptied the joint bank account we had started in June), no job and a small uhaul. It was mortifying, and scary. We “couch surfed” for about three (that’s hard when there are four of you) weeks while I searched for a job, place to live and schools for the kids. Schools wouldn’t take them without an address, couldn’t get an address without a job, couldn’t get a job until I got the kids in school. I hadn’t felt so defeated in many, many years.

    I found an apartment with the help of my brother, and we moved in at the beginning of September.

    The last week of September I was offered a job as a Special Education Paraprofessional in the school system. I’m two months in and incredibly thankful, grateful and blessed with the most loving and supportive children behind me. We work hard to make it work, it’s still a struggle but I just got my first official paycheck last Friday (paid monthly, but in arrears) and the utility bills are paid! Never been so excited to pay bills in my life.

    That said, there is just not anything left for Christmas presents. I’m having foot surgery in a week and a half and will be non weight bearing for two months, which puts me out on leave until almost January. We lost my father the week before Thanksgiving this year and it felt like the hits just keep on coming. My mother passed on Christmas Eve four years ago so the holidays have taken on some more sadness bundled in to love, thankfulness, praise and sharing.

    Some days I look in the mirror and just wonder why? I pray and ask God why. And the answer I keep hearing is you are right where you are supposed to be. Trust me. So, I’m trusting, and I keep getting out of bed every morning. I love with everything I have. I give with everything I can. And I share with everyone I can, as I drive Uber on the side and have spoken with countless people about my story and how it CAN be done. Isn’t easy, and it isn’t over, but we can do this together.

    Thank you for any help you share with my children. You’ll never know how thankful I am.

    I have a wish list for them here

            Forgot to include state - Phx,AZ. Sidenote: Does anyone know any good programs to look into for a teenage girl struggling with her weight and feeling like she is hideous when she isn’t? I have never been in a situation like this before so any recommendations would be great.
    

    Hi everyone a friend of mine sent me here and I am hoping I can find a bit of holiday help for my kids. Two are teens and they are harder to shop for so I put 3-4 assorted items for each kid they only need one or two but it was just to give options to who ever wants to help. This year has been extra rough on us we went through a big family loss, loss of income and one of our teens had a bit of a breakdown due to feeling bullied over weight. The holiday is looking bleak and we can’t afford to do anything this year any help would be appreciated. It was hard finding things in the limit which is why I gave one or two options they only need a gift or two, with what each likes and wants it was hard to pick things to add.

    A bit about the kids. JT is seventeen, he helps look out for his siblings and helps with anything around the house without complaining and often does things without even being ask. He recently started a small part time job after school to help his mom out with bills and is wanting to start a career in the medical field in the future. He is in need of long sleeve shirts so I put a two pack on his list, the two comic books and game are options for him as well. LS is sixteen she is a big reader, likes to create things from scratch like cookies and cakes, she wants to be a baker and a photographer when she is older. She is slightly overweight and has been dealing with a lot this year, she had a bit of a breakdown earlier this year that was really hard on her and on us as a family. She needs and wants a new pair of shoes but the pair she really wants are too expensive for us, if she only received the shoes it would be alright. The writing set, light and face oil are also wishes of hers. C is 8 and he loves building, playing outside, catching bugs, reading and playing video games with his siblings. M is ten she loves reading, crafts, drawing and animals she wants to be a vet when she is older. Their wishlist is all of the kids will enjoy anything sent they all know times get tough and are alright with skipping Christmas this year if we end up not getting help, they all had been begging to go see the snow but we can’t afford a hotel either so I am just posting to see if each can get one or two gifts to make their holidays brighter thank you.

  352. This is a very special family with five kids in my neighborhood. I had hoped I could get them the items on their wishlist, but due to unexpected heart surgery of my own, I’ve not been able to do anything. Please reach out to me with any questions.

    Here is the wishlist.
    https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/dl/invite/2ZR4CfK
    Sorry, I couldn’t figure out how to hyperlink!

    Here is a bit about each child.
    Betsy, 15, has Down Syndrome & loves to play in the puddles. It has been at least 3 years since she rec’d new coats or shoes. I see her out there playing in the rain all the time & her boots have holes in the soles. Her coat is 4 sizes too small
    Justin, age 16 is a special needs kid who likes to run and draw. He hasn’t had any new shoes or markers in years.
    Jamie age 13, has was born with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. He is always happy, but will never be a self-sufficient adult. He loves to draw.
    Amanda age 12, has several siblings that are differently-abled. She is responsible for all housework & she thought these items would help w/cleaning by keeping toilet paper off the floor since they can’t have a real cat.
    Eric, age 8, loves to play with legos and read books. He has autism and does not yet speak. I don’t know if he ever will, but legos and books take him into a new world that make his little face light up.
    Thank you for anything you are able to do for me. I really appreciate all you do!
    And just so you know, I do have them shipped to my house, because since their parents are alcoholics, they will sell anything they can to get more money for liquor. If this is a problem, please let me know.
    Respectfully,
    Gina

  373.         Two months ago exactly, Hurricane Michael made landfall in northwest Florida. My daughters and I lived in Parker, Florida in the Panama City area and I worked at the local Air Force base, but Michael changed all of that.
    

    I lost both my job and my home to the storm. We evacuated with our clothes, computers and cats but lost everything else. There are few jobs back in Parker now and 60% of the housing where we were is now unlivable. We were luckier than some because my uncle in Pennsylvania had a place we could stay. I feel like a coward for leaving, but it was better to move for my daughter’s sake.

    Moving so far has been tough. We are now in NE Pennsylvania about an hour south of Scranton, starting over. This miracle – and it is – will give my girls a Christmas and replace some of what they lost.

    Thank you and happy holidays to all!

  374. I’m asking for help with my 4 year old boy. He’s so sweet and so excited (like all 4 year olds) for Santa to come.
    I’m a single mom working part time and almost my entire income goes to bills, I just can’t give him everything he deserves and it’s heartbreaking. I did put a new coat and hat on here for him, his coat is ripp d and he desperately needs a new one.
    Anyone who can help make Christmas special for my little boy, I hope you know you are loved and appreciated and won’t be forgotten. Thank you!

  382. Hi everyone

    My name is Jamesha. I am a mother of three girls Marissa, Kylie and Trisha. Marissa is 9, Kylie is 5 and Trisha is 7. Kylie has been undergoing cancer treatments since July after we found an unexplainable growth on her scalp. I can’t sugar coat how horrible of a year it has been for our family. To see my daughter constantly in pain hurts me deeply as a parent. I’ve been on my own and caring for my little girls since they were born and I honestly feel helpless at this point. I don’t have money to give them the Christmas I’m sure that they would like. But we do have each other and I know that means a lot too. Two of my daughters really need coats and are walking around in thick sweatshirts. I know that is sad of me to admit as a parent but Kylie’s medical bills have been piling up. They really need coats.

    I want to say thank you in advance for whomever finds it in their heart to help our family.

    I’m 9 mos preggo, due in a few weeks. I’m still working, but I’m down to less than 20 hours because I work in a restaurant and it’s a lot of lifting heavy catering orders and being on my feet, and I’m just not physically able to do as much right now, so things are very tight. I have faith that next year, I will be able to help some people here, because I’ll finally have a college degree, yay! Time to get out of minimum wage work. But for this Christmas, on my list there are two items for my fourteen-year-old and two items I can still really use for the baby, if anyone is able to help, it would mean the world.

    Hi my name is Jose and I have 4 kids. 3 girls 10,5,4 and a boy that is 7 with Autism.
    Our lives have been drastically changed this year. My wife passed away and I am trying to do everything on my own from juggling work, therapy and the kids extra curricular school activities. She was the one who took them to school, doctors, etc and also held a job. I’m not one that asks for help and always try to do things on my own but I’ve quickly realized that it’s impossible. I’m reaching out to anyone today that can help me give my kids a happy Christmas as they have been through a lot and my oldest daughter that is 10 has turned into her mom trying to do everything she did. I wish I could give them the world on my own.Thank you and God Bless in advance . Merry Christmas to all!

            Hello Everyone &amp; Happy James Garfield Christmas Miracle!!
    

    My husband lost his job suddenly last year while he was also attending college to finish up his bachelor’s degree, BUT! thankfully he found a great job – but now we’re so screwed up financially for at least the next eight months, which means pretty much no Christmas for either of our children. I had a yard sale in early October and have my oldest son’s shopping completed (and was so releived to be able to do that, because last year (as usual) he “took the hit” when it came to gifts.

    But then there’s Jami. Jami’s our son who has difficulties with his really bad panic attacks. We are a proud parent of an LGBT son, but that surely doesn’t make school or the world easier for him 😦

    It’s not always been easy for him at all, really, and it’s not now, being the only gay person at his school that he is aware of, and is working with the school to start homeschooling to avoid the bullying aspect of school, which is bringing his spirits down so low. I’m trying to figure out a way to keep him IN the school with the few people he DOES know, but every day there’s something new and ugly he has to face, it seems. (I hate saying this, but we’re worn out too as parents, which isn’t nice to say, I know.)

    I want so much for him to have a nice Christmas Morning. He could use just a nice day, you know? He is just really a great kid and I wish everyone could see that.

    I have severe panic disorder with agoraphobia, and I swear to God I try every day to get better, but it’s been 20 years so I think I’m sort of where I’m going to be.

    Thanks for any help at all.
    Love Melanie

            Hi everyone. This has been a year for many of us. I have 3 severely mentally ill children. We alwahttps://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/5YOJIY9CXW93?&amp;sort=defaultys have our hands full but this year has been unreal. Our middle girl with schizophrenia became very unstable in March and still is. Our son with autism is adjusting to puberty starting. My friends young adult child had a beautiful daughter who is 11 months old and they will be with us a couple months while in between places. And best yet ,total sarcasm, in April my husband was in a car accident thank goodness he is ok but we never were able to get a new vehicle and by the time he was able to go back to work and had transportation his job of 15 years fired him. He is still trying to find a job with no luck! I would not care about anything under the tree except the two youngest because of their disabilities still have a lower mentality then chronological age think Santa is coming and bringing everyone gifts as long as you are good. If anyone can help us give them a Christmas we would be forever grateful!  I’m reposting I was overlimit I apologize I have some trouble with reading. We r from Baltimore Maryland. Here r revised lists. Thank you

    My husband who’s been laid off 4 times in 3 years finally was recruited for an amazing job with growth potential with good health insurance. Our daughter who has had a number of god-awful surgeries had the very last one and can walk for the most part again. I’ve started writing again, our middle son got a service dog we are training… all was great.
    Then October came along. My moms cancer was back, an old heath issue has reared it’s head, our HS son was bullied out of school and then hospitalized for a bleeding GI tract and ulcer in November, my daughters leg is rejecting some hardware, my grandpa died rather suddenly and we needed to pay for the funeral and on the day before it our central heat and air died it’s last death.
    I just want my kids to remember this year as a good one, they deserve it. My middle son is still homebound with anxiety about going back and my daughter is waiting for us to pay the copay for an MRI. Hopefully that will happen soon.
    Anything you can do for my 3 kids, I will appreciate so much. It’s a small list. The youngest mostly wants the comic books and drums but I did let them tell me what was going on here and they’re kids.
    ❤ you Jenny and hug your daughter. Her story this year was a great read for my teen son.

    So very grateful.

    Last year I asked for help buying a dear friend a dutch oven. Some amazing person bought it outright. When she received it she called me to see if I had sent it to her, and I told her the whole story. It made her love it even more to know that there are such fantastically wonderfully people out there.
    This year I’m in a slightly better position, so I’ll be looking through others’ lists to find a way I can help.
    MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL

  451. I know you say not to feel bad about asking, but I totally do. If I had anything extra I would be filling my cart with as many other wishlists as I could. We’ve never had excess by any means, but we’ve always been comfortable enough in the past. This past year has been extremely rough for us though. We’ve moved across the country for a job that we thought was a much better deal than it turned out to be, away from all of our family. The cost of living here is so much higher than what we were prepared for and we’re having a really hard time keeping up with everything, and we’ve been relying on food stamps and a food pantry for most of our groceries so that we can afford other basic stuff like rent and utilities. Our twins are really excited about Christmas and Santa and presents, but we honestly have nothing to spare this year. and my anxiety about making the holidays special for them is hitting me hard. Here’s my list for our 2 year old boy/girl twins that I’d love to have be their gifts from Santa, and we are in Los Angeles, CA.

    Hi, I’m posting this as someone on here asked me to… I needed to ask permission of the recipient first before sharing.

    “M” is a guest at our house. M is pregnant, 17, single, and disowned by their family… for being transgendered. M was transitioning (hormones,therapy,etc) when they got pregnant. It’s a lot for a young adult to take in. They are my daughter’s best friend, and I will always support them. ❤
    I worry about their self-care. So I asked M what they’d want for Christmas for themselves (not baby-who will have plenty) Apparently the fact that in our house we toast our bread in the oven is ‘weird’, so a toaster is on the list! Lol! They layer on hoodies instead of a coat, but it’s time to size up soon with baby getting bigger, so I’ve added one on the list. I’m trying to find a reasonable pair of gloves to add as well.

    It’s tough to write anything else without getting preachy. I wish nothing but love, peace and understanding for everyone.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    *Also big, glorious hugs to #418 for helping my family have a brighter Christmas! Thank you:)

    PLEASE follow the rules, folks. Trust me, it’s a LOT easier to get “lost in the shuffle” when there are 300-400 duplicated posts than when there are just 100 single posts. You don’t have to repost every couple hours. We’ll get to you. Relax.

    I know reading rules sucks, but Jenny specified that you make ONE single list for ALL your kids. $35 PER CHILD MAX, under age 18 (plus a coat). I see lists with 20-30 items for one kid, and lists where more items have been added after the first round was purchased. Not cool, y’all. Let’s let ALL the kids have a chance at a gift, okay? This isn’t a contest to see how much free stuff you can get. Jenny said you can add more on Friday if there is something you still need.

  457. Hi, I’m a single mom of 4 wonderful children. They deserve the world from me and yet I couldn’t even give my son a dollar from “the tooth fairy” when he lost his tooth yesterday.

    I did some quick talking and convinced him to wait until today when I’d be able to get a dollar from my assistance payment and a pillow to put it under. I want to keep his sense of childlike wonder as long as possible.

    With a lot of practice, I kept my tears from falling and redirected his attention to something more interesting so I wouldn’t cry in front of him.

    My older kids understand that things are hard and they know that I’m not working because I’m sick. They know about the tumors, and why I’m always laying down. But I know deep down that they would appreciate it if someone sent a few presents their way. I’ve included their toy, clothing and book wishlists. Anything helps. Right now it’s just so hard to keep going. I’m always in pain and depressed and anxious. Seeing them happy makes me happy and lifts my spirits!

  465. Originally Post #334 but I went back and reread the rules and realized I forgot to add our city and ages of the kids. I’m so sorry for not getting it right the first time.

    I took in my sister and her three kiddos last month, ages 9, 5 & 3. We live in Las Vegas. They lost everything in a fire and have nothing. It’s been rough on them, compounded by the fact her middle daughter has sensory issues and this whole ordeal has been very traumatic for her. We are in desperate need for a new weighted blanket so her daughter can sleep at night, which hasn’t happened hardly at all since they have been here because it is a new, strange house. They are super expensive but I found the absolute cheapest one I could, hoping maybe for a miracle. The girls are sweet and scared and wondering if Santa will find them at our house and if he knows that they don’t have a house anymore. They love animals and games and to paint and color. Thank you for anyone who can help.

    My kids know things are bad this year. They’ve watched me and their mother struggle all year long. They are 16 and 17 (boys) so no matter how careful we are they know. I got hurt at work and it’s been a constant fight and cout dates. They watch their mom go off to work day after day more tired than she was the day before. And both refuse to tell us anything they want and say not to worry about it. That they know we have bills to pay and there is no reason to spend anything. After I got over feeling like a failure, I decided I would find a way to get them something. It’s all we can do to keep food on the table and roof over our heads. But I want one good memory for this crap year. One that isn’t my wife crawling into bed as soon as she eats dinner so she can get up in 5 hours and start all over again.

  498.         I have two teenagers and 1 youngster who will be turning ten this year, we are just needing a little help this year and their tastes have changed with the seasons I swear. They each have their own things they like, and it seems none of them like the same things for the most part.  My teenagers are 14 and 17.   The 14 year old is really digging harry potter.  My 17 year old is just into sports and animals it seems and my 10 year old is into harry potter a little bit and also other things like coloring and such.  Any little thing will help as I have none from his father or any family.  Thank you and God Bless you miracle workers, we really appreciate all you do. I don't know what I would be able to do without you and the help you provide this time of year.

    We are a family of 4. We have 2 children who have been on their best behavior because they really want Santa to visit them and leave them a few gifts. We have fallen on hard times this year and really need Christmas help. I added them a gift each and a jacket because they really need one. We can barely afford our bills, much less Christmas. I will add more things they need once I get the okay to. Thank you so much for doing this!

  509.         I'm posting on behalf of a family that we have taken in and we are helping.  We live in Plymouth, Minnesota and the family lives in St. Paul.  I am a teacher and I have had three of the four kids in my classes over the years.  We are able to foster and adopt one of the children, but the other three are in different situations with their parents.  Our new son is 16, his brother is 18 and the girls are 14 and 12.  These kids have been through hell and our son is doing okay, but his siblings are not in good situations.  Their parents are addicted and making poor choices, so the kids are fending for themselves.  Anything you send will be wrapped and delivered the weekend before Christmas so they have something to open.
    

    Thank you for helping these kids. The last year has changed the direction of my life we hope that we can help change theirs.

    Hi everyone. This has been a year for many of us. I have 3 severely mentally ill children. We alwahttps://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/5YOJIY9CXW93?&sort=defaultys have our hands full but this year has been unreal. Our middle girl with schizophrenia became very unstable in March and still is. Our son with autism is adjusting to puberty starting. My friends young adult child had a beautiful daughter who is 11 months old and they will be with us a couple months while in between places. And best yet ,total sarcasm, in April my husband was in a car accident thank goodness he is ok but we never were able to get a new vehicle and by the time he was able to go back to work and had transportation his job of 15 years fired him. He is still trying to find a job with no luck! I would not care about anything under the tree except the two youngest because of their disabilities still have a lower mentality then chronological age think Santa is coming and bringing everyone gifts as long as you are good. If anyone can help us give them a Christmas we would be forever grateful! I’m reposting I was overlimit I apologize I have some trouble with reading. We r from Baltimore Maryland. Here r revised lists. Thank you

They have been very good lately, especially recently because it’s so close to Christmas and they know Santa would be here soon. Anyways, I would love to have a few gifts from Santa under the the tree for them. I really love to see them smile. They are great kids, they deserve a happy Christmas. I also added coats because they really need them. They need winter clothes in general, but I will not add them unless I get the okay to do so. Thank you for the oppurtunity to let me post this!

  521. Hi, I’m a single mom of 4 wonderful children. They deserve the world from me and yet I couldn’t even give my son a dollar from “the tooth fairy” when he lost his tooth yesterday. I did some quick talking and convinced him to wait until today when I’d be able to get a dollar from my assistance payment and a pillow to put it under. He still believes and almost discovered that my secret identity is the tooth fairy. I want to keep his sense of childlike wonder as long as possible. With a lot of practice, I kept my tears from falling and redirected his attention to something more interesting so I wouldn’t cry in front of him.

    My older kids understand that things are hard and they know that I’m not working because I’m sick. They know about the tumors and my messed up hormones, and why I’m always laying down. But I know deep down that they would appreciate it if someone sent a few presents their way. I’ve included their toy, clothing and book wishlists. Anything helps. Right now it’s just so hard to keep going. I’m always in pain and depressed and anxious. Seeing them happy makes me happy. I almost forgot! When I was able to last year, I gave to project nightlight. It felt great. Yes it was after the holidays but I don’t think they minded. The kids wanted to give to the homesless and to kids.

I completely understand and respect the age guidelines and am very appreciative of any help you can lend. I don’t receive child support and this year finished my BS in environmental science. I keep thinking things will get easier, and sometimes it seems so, but then find myself here asking for help. I know I haven’t come this far to continue to struggle, and though we pay it forward in small ways when we can I believe that one day my family will be able to come back here and buy out at least one entire wishlist.

    My little guys are into Minions and anime, and my new teenager is a reader that I’m anxious to introduce to some favorite books of mine. I did add some things to make hair and body spray for my daughter, though like I said she is 18. I can save them there for later 🙂 My boys won’t use the body wash I make at home hence the Everybody item on my list. Oh and we are in Iowa.

    Marie 523- I’ve seen you post a few times, I completely feel for your situation, it sucks to not have tooth fairy money. But if you want to get presents for these kiddos, you might want to read through the guidelines again. It’s supposed to be one list for all the kids, and a $35 max per kid. You have 3 lists totaling over $1000. I’d hate to see people bypass your lists because of that, because it sounds like you could really use the help. Good luck hon, Merry Christmas, I hope things get better.

    Forgot to include state – Phx,AZ. Sidenote: Does anyone know any good programs to look into for a teenage girl struggling with her weight and feeling like she is hideous when she isn’t? I have never been in a situation like this before so any recommendations would be great.

    Hi everyone a friend of mine sent me here and I am hoping I can find a bit of holiday help for my kids. Two are teens and they are harder to shop for so I put 3-4 assorted items for each kid they only need one or two but it was just to give options to who ever wants to help. This year has been extra rough on us we went through a big family loss, loss of income and one of our teens had a bit of a breakdown due to feeling bullied over weight. The holiday is looking bleak and we can’t afford to do anything this year any help would be appreciated. It was hard finding things in the limit which is why I gave one or two options they only need a gift or two, with what each likes and wants it was hard to pick things to add.

    A bit about the kids. JT is seventeen, he helps look out for his siblings and helps with anything around the house without complaining and often does things without even being ask. He recently started a small part time job after school to help his mom out with bills and is wanting to start a career in the medical field in the future. He is in need of long sleeve shirts so I put a two pack on his list, the two comic books and game are options for him as well. LS is sixteen she is a big reader, likes to create things from scratch like cookies and cakes, she wants to be a baker and a photographer when she is older. She is slightly overweight and has been dealing with a lot this year, she had a bit of a breakdown earlier this year that was really hard on her and on us as a family. She needs and wants a new pair of shoes but the pair she really wants are too expensive for us, if she only received the shoes it would be alright. The writing set, light and face oil are also wishes of hers. C is 8 and he loves building, playing outside, catching bugs, reading and playing video games with his siblings. M is ten she loves reading, crafts, drawing and animals she wants to be a vet when she is older. Their wishlist is all of the kids will enjoy anything sent they all know times get tough and are alright with skipping Christmas this year if we end up not getting help, they all had been begging to go see the snow but we can’t afford a hotel either so I am just posting to see if each can get one or two gifts to make their holidays brighter thank you.

    Hi. My kids are 16 and 17 years old. Long past believing in Santa. Unfortunately, they still believe in me. I’ve had a rough few months
    Stress, upon stress upon stress. Sunday was my birthday and not a single member of my family, that doesn’t live with me, wished me a happy birthday. And really there is no excuse since Facebook announces it. But I’m the odd man out in my family and I really shouldn’t let it bother me. I went byy mom’s today and she gave me a gift for each of the kids but didn’t issue an invitation for us to go there for Christmas. I just kinda really need for my kids to get a win right now. I’m not going to and I can live with that. But, for all my faults and there must be many since I seem to not be able to feel like I can get a win for anything, they stand by me. When I’m tired and trying to pretend it’s all good, they see and will go above and beyond to help me stay sane. From doing dishes, to walking dogs, to just bringing me a cold pop after I get off work. They try to make my life easier as hard as I try to make theirs easier. I did a single list for both of them. I’m pretty sure I stayed under the limit but I am trying to do this on breaks at work. This is my second and last 15 minute break. I made up the list over 3 bathroom breaks. We are in Ohio. So US shipping.

    I do hope someone can find it in their heart to help us make a Christmas possible for the kids.

    Worried momma

    Hi everyone.
    I just want to say… this has been my worst year ever. My health went down hill after moving into the apartment we are in. I’m now on oxygen 24/7 and I can’t hardly walk very far. I’ve applied for my disability and waiting to hear from that. But.. waiting doesn’t get the kiddos Christmas gifts. I just put the tree up two days ago and I didn’t want to do it then but it’s for these babies I treasure so much and the joy in their precious lil eyes when they see it. I’m not asking for a bunch and one child is only asking for one item. I pray so hard and hope that they will have a good Christmas this year.
    Anything that anyone can afford will be appreciated so much.
    Thank you and God Bless all you secret Santa’s ( or Angels 👼).

  572. This is not a wishlist for us, but for the children of two families we are trying to help.
    The mother of two of the children is currently in the hospital. We would like to have something she can surprise them with when they visit her on Christmas.
    The other children are those of a couple who are struggling financially, and could use a hand up during the holiday season.
    We plan on providing some necessities (coats, pajamas, etc.) and a stocking for each child, but would really love for each child to have something special to open, as well.

  574. This has been a rough year for our family, but somehow I managed to sock away gifts for the girls a few at a time. I don’t need any things. Could I ask for some good energy and prayers to be sent our way? I’m having a health crisis the doctors can’t figure out. My husband really needs a job since his company went out of business. My Mom is having health issues and we just lost my Dad two years ago. Financially somehow are going to make Christmas happen, but I sure could use the prayers and energy. Maybe James Garfield will bring my husband a job in 2019. Thanks. ❤️

    Here’s our list for our ASD son and his siblings.

  638. My little ones wrote their Christmas lists today. They have mostly little items and then their bigger Santa items. We have fallen on hard times this year and I’m just exhausted. My husband is active duty in the military and sustained an injury that just required major surgery on Friday and has him coming home to recover. We just transferred duty stations before his surgery and so we are in a new place without many resources. I am a stay at home mom that homeschools my six year old and things are hard between the hardships of moving, my husband being out of work, and getting settled into a new place without family around. My little guys do not have much they are asking for. My oldest would like a pair of “crocs” to take our little dog out in and I also added a pair for my youngest as he always wants the same and is learning what shoe goes on what foot. Besides that they truly have not asked for much but we could really use the help. I feel overwhelmed in all that is on my plate and I know this year even the smallest things will be a struggle as my husband begins his recovery. .

    We are in Georgia

  641. I went over our list and eliminated the clothing and books.

    Hi, I’m a single mom of 4 wonderful children. They deserve the world from me and yet I couldn’t even give my son a dollar from “the tooth fairy” when he lost his tooth yesterday.

    I did some quick talking and convinced him to wait until today when I’d be able to get a dollar from my assistance payment and a pillow to put it under. I want to keep his sense of childlike wonder as long as possible.

    With a lot of practice, I kept my tears from falling and redirected his attention to something more interesting so I wouldn’t cry in front of him.

    My older kids understand that things are hard and they know that I’m not working because I’m sick. They know about the tumors, and why I’m always laying down. But I know deep down that they would appreciate it if someone sent a few presents their way. I’ve included their toy, clothing and book wishlists. Anything helps. Right now it’s just so hard to keep going. I’m always in pain and depressed and anxious. Seeing them happy makes me happy and lifts my spirits!
