How can we all help?

If you, or someone you know would please help, by matching my $10.00.  Our entire collection of money will go towards gifts for this family to open on Christmas morning. I will go shopping for the family for all the things they need, or would like on their wish list that they have given me.  On Christmas Eve, the family will be presented with all these gifts that you have helped contribute too.

About the family?

They are a young couple, with an adorable 1 year old baby boy. They just moved from a trailer in Delaware (6 people were living in it) to N.J. Where they are (all 3 of them) now living in a family friends small bedroom. They are both recently unemployed (and diligently job hunting every day) and have no car or means of transportation. ( public transportation is not very close to them either) they can't afford to pay their phone bills so they have no working phones, they can only text on them when wi-if isvailable.  (they are using the family friends house phone for job hunting and to contact friends and family members if needed)

After speaking to the mother several times, her main focus and concern is reguarding their 1 year old son Brayden, and how much she wishes he had could just have some gifts for him to open under the tree on Christmas morning.  She did not once even mention, anything about her or her boyfriend ( Braydens father) and never told me what they would like or need. The mother, had a very hard time even accepting this offer when I told her what I would like to do  She first said no thank you, because she didn't have a time frame for me as to when she would be able pay everyone back the money.  This family is extremely humble, pleasant, and very grateful for all of this and the love they have for their little boy is undeniable.

How did I find this family?

 A woman on facebook from a page I belong to actually told be about their entire situation, after a Man asked if anyone was in need of a $10 Walmart gift card.  This family has  NEVER asked for any help. They had no idea this was even possible for themselves, to get this kind of help around Christmas.

A cool idea?

To have a Christmas tree filled with ornaments that have the names of all the people who have helped contribute to this family.( If you would like to donate "in memory of" or " in honor of" someone,  we will then put their name on the ornament for the tree.) On Christmas morning, we can then all see this beautiful tree, ( I will post pictures) and be reminded of this beautiful family in need, and that we all really made a difference in their lives for Christmas!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I hope to see your name on the Christmas tree ;)
