Many are in need this season and I'm trying to help as many as I can but my own income is so low. I just saw a post in a group I'm in (http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=10537&pst=1075463&archival=&posts=9) with some sites. I hope some of these help.

For families in Ohio only

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ohiochristmaswish/?yguid=238207091


And if you are a member of ebay they offer help in the chat area go to  giving board, they post off and on throughout the day as to how to request help.


http://groups.yahoo.com/group/santaneedshelp2/


Good luck.


Another suggestion, post on your local freecycle group, call local churches, salvation army, toy time or toys for tots.


You might also ask at schools , I adopted a child last year from stephanies pre school. They just add the childs name to a tree and I bought a gift and took it to the school.


If you have an active case at Children services, They can be a huge help too.


And your local newspaper may be able to help, Ours has a brighten a christmas section. The salvation army collects gifts for Families in need.

I can't vouch for any of these sites. I just did a search and came
up with them. Several I have joined, but many I have not (some because of area restrictions. ..I live in Georgia).

okay I really don't know what to say but I could really use some temp help right now , Insurance is cancelled on car I lost my job the week b4 thanksgiving , Christmas is coming up I have one little angel my little girl is 18 months old and I have never been in the situation b4 I don't even have anything for christmas for her.
