need some info on christmas charities

life777 started this conversation

Hello

I need to find out how to sign up for some kind of christmas charity. I checked on the net but it seems like I am going in circles. I am the proud mother of a boy who is five years old, and a girl who is fourteen, and for the past five or six years, our Christmas day consisted of being together and enjoying the day. Ive heard people talk about getting some presents for their kids, but i cant seem to find these charities. If you can help me it would be greatly appreciated. I think my children have learned the lesson that Christmas isnt all about presents. And oddly enough have never complained to me about what other people get. We live very modest in a one bedroom and right now im trying to get my gas service connected again. Anyways, we have made it through tougher times and we will make it through again.  I think i should put my pride aside and show my children that being good does have its rewards..in what ever form it may come. If you have any suggestions you can e-mail me at survivinlife777@yahoo.com. Thank You,

Hello my name is Amy, I have 3 children and have no income for christmas, I have a 3 year old daughter, a 2 year old son and a 2 month old son, I could really use any kind of help available, they are all small so it wouldn't take much to make them all happy, I also am in need of a laptop computer, for college I start classes in January and the financial aid will not cover the cost of one , thank you so much I really appreciate any thing you could do for me, Amy

The U.S. Marine Corps collects toy donations from generous citizens across the United States and distributes them to children in need, through a program called "Toys for Tots." If you would like to register so your children receive gifts, rest assured that signing up online is easy. Ensure that your children have a holiday they'll never forget. Just follow the steps listed below and learn about how you can register for Toys for Tots online.
1. Go to the website http://www.toysfortots.org/.
2. Click on the button entitled Request Toys, at the top of the screen.
3. Choose your state.

5. Click on the button entitled Request Toys, found at the top of the screen.
6. Contact your area's coordinator by email. The website will list the names and contact information of coordinators in your area.
