Just wanted too pass on this good news, I've been emailing back and forth with Teddi aka poppyday13, both she and her daughter are officially CANCER FREE!!! She has taken on a new job some 200 miles away from her home and is staying with her brother. She is still having some lung issues, so please just Keep her in your Prayers.Aside from that all is well. :-)

That is awesome!! Congratulations! I graduated with a BSN in 2013. I took some time to study for my boards, and then forever searching for work!

2hands.org You can post a need there and people from your state can see it. I have not heard any success stories from it personally, I just stumbled upon it in my searches. Anything is worth a shot!! If I find anymore places that seem legit I will one to one them to you, as I do not want to flood the main page.
My girls are 5 and 4(on the 21st). They are so excited for Santa to come! I love Christmas, but I hate the stress that follows. I am thankful for the help I receive, without it we would have absolutely nothing.
Thank you for prayers. They are always appreciated. I am terrified. Between the kids and work I do not know how we are going to survive. When I work he takes care of them because I cannot afford childcare. But they say he is going to be out of work until spring time at least! I am not sure how long the immediate recovery is going to take, but it is going to be a struggle :( I know in a year from now I will be looking back on it wondering how I made it... lol.. funny how that works hey?

I know it is really sad, this year I am telling my kids there is no Santa, because there at the age 8 and 10 and need to know it isn't a fairly tale man leaving gifts. I am barely surviving but I signed my kids up for Angel Tree hoping they get picked. I also seen the news and thought the same thing what about the people who can't even afford a layaway. I never tried to hands.org I will check it out. I usually try my local churches and I am getting a food basket so we are blessed with eachother.I hope you husband has a speedy recovery sending prayers for you and your family. My children participated in operation child with their own money they had saved thur birthdays put together between them it was really nice they send it over seas and someone from our church paid for shipping so it was all a good deed. I am very hopeful that things will get better for me soon. I have 9 classes left on my Bachelors Degree and after that I hope to find my way into a career and start living life.

It is very sad. It really depresses me. I hate that society leads kid to believe that if they get nothing, they were on the naughty list. It just is not fair. Then I see things on the news, like the angel who paid $20,000 in toys r us layaway. That is amazing! But at the same time, I know the majority of people like me/us who are broke do not even have a layaway account because i cannot imagine how i could pay it off. There are so many amazing angels, but there are sooo many in need. It is such a sad time. I just hope that everyone can find a little joy in this stressful time. I have things that I have been saving to send out if I find a person who needs them, but I do not even have $ to ship. I hope you can get something for Christmas for your kids. Have you tried 2hands.org?

I had hoped that this year I would be able to help a family or two. But nothing went as planned. My fiance was in a car accident at the end of October and has to have surgery Wednesday. After he recovers from that we have to go to the brain injury clinic for different studies. I JUST got a job, but I am playing catch up and it is impossible. As soon as I pay one bill, it is due again and the rest are being shut off. It is impossible to get ahead. I know that one day I will be able to be an angel for a few families, and I cannot wait until that day. I cannot wait to no longer need to ask for help and instead find some kiddos to cheer up.

I see there are alot of new people on in the last few weeks. I haven't really seen any familiar people. I have been on here 4 years initially came looking for help with my resume while I was working on my Associates degree and someone gave me some great ideals. Last year I was able to drop off some things Christmas Eve to a family in the area of where I was going, it was used things but they were very appreciative and I was happy I could help. I don't have a job right now and I volunteer just to keep busy sometimes hoping mabey it will lead to other job prospects. I still have hope for Christmas I just know something will fall thur. The churches filled up so fast this year and last Sunday at my church alone there was over 600 angel tree tags that haven't been picked off the tree to get a gift very sad.

I never asked him either, he just asked me what they were interested in. He asked how old my girls were and I told him my youngests birthday is 12/21. He sent me an overnight present.
I told him that I was going to send him a pasty (A traditional finnish/cornish food that is a staple in my area). When I came back to get his address, I found out he had passed. He was a true inspiration. He is the person who inspired me to pay it forward every chance I get. I do not have much, but kindness is free. I never knew how much of a difference I could make. It sure is empty feeling around here now.
All of the "spirited" people are not around. The Christmas spirit was alive and well last year. Now it is just depressing.

I enjoyed his talks also, and he sent my kids monster high barbies last year for Christmas, I didn't even ask he said he wanted to help me because he always seen me helping people with resources and info. He told me he wanted to help people in case something happened to him he wanted to do good before he left this earth. It's amazing how someone you never met could touch your life, I learned alot from him.

I know. I was so sad when I heard. I am praying for his kids. I cannot imagine how much they miss him. He was such a kind person. Anytime I was down or sad, he cheered me up. Last year he sent me a birthday present for my daughter. It meant so much to me. It was the only present I was able to give her as I had spent all of my money on her party. It still makes me tear up, thinking of his gesture.
