Well Everyone.... The Holidays are about here and I just wanted to take the time to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and to give an update to everyone. Kathy was moved to a care center for rehab. She had surgery yesterday again..but is getting better by the day. I did find a few churches here in Mn. that I went back to and begged and they provided a few gifts for Kathy's family. We did not get anything from this site or anyone on it....sad to say...not even just a card of thoughts. Take care everyone and have a great new year!
Dear Amy, There is United Way...you just dial 211 on any telephone and if they cannot assist you...they will know who can. Salvation Army has heat share...and they pay heating bills. I would also talk to your state welfare department. They should have resources in your area. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. I being a survivor of a domestic abuse relationship...know it is hard.... be sure to tell....211 about the abuse....it may get you more resources not available to others. Best Wishes!
I have read just about every request out here. United Way has the information to assist with just about anything you may need help with. IF they cannot help you they will direct you to who can. You may reach them by dialing ( 211 ) from your telephone. You have to show proof of the need...but if you are being honest that should not be a problem for you! Happy Holidays and God Bless!
I just wanted to place an update. I have found that there are many people ...including ones on this site that are requesting holiday assistance that have already recevied or soon to receive assistance from a program. It really angers me when people get greedy and flood programs with false information. I have received many reqests for assistance and have had to turn them away because I cannot get the help for the families that I am working with. We are interfacing with many organizations,counties and churches with requests for assistance to prevent someone from scamming or abusing the programs. My client is in a hospital bed...just off life support and cannot get help from any program...and there are people making mulitple requests. Shame on you! I need assistance for Kathy and her family. I will and can get you any information you need to show this is a ligit request. Please contact me by email if you are able to assist this family. minnesotaangel64@yaho o.com Thank you...Seasons Greetings and God Bless!
I just wanted to give an update. I am very angry and sadened with the information that I have been getting. It appears that there are several people..including many on this site that are pleading for holiday assistance that have already received...or soon to be receiving assistance from a holiday program...yet are signing up for multiple programs. We are interfacing and exchanging information with these agencies to prevent someone from requesting more than their share. I keep getting request from people to assist them and I have to decline assistance. I can not even get the assistance for the families I have already and I do not want to let anyone else down. I am still seeking assistance for my family. She is in a hospital and cannot get out to get anything. Won't someone Please step up and help her? email me: firstname.lastname@example.org Th ank you and God Bless!
I just wanted to give an update. I am receiving many emails asking for assistance for the holidays. I am unable to assist anyone else...I can't even get the assistance for the families that I have. Help is available from Toys for Tots & Salvation Army.They said that they are taking emergency applications from people who need toys for their children. In my situation...these are families that cannot get help from these agencies and I pray someone will come forward to assist my families.
I thought I would write and update everyone. I am being contacted by many people asking for help for the holidays. I am sorry to report that I cannot find the assistance for the families that I have and I do not want to let anyone else down.I have tried many churches and busiensses and got no where. I do wish everyone a joyous holiday and may all your Christmas wishes come true.I did talk with Salvation Army. They are taking emergency registrations. You can also call 211 (united way) they are a great resource for just about anything you need. I am still praying for the aid for my families. They cannot get help like everyone else. Thank you and God Bless!
Dear Lynn2, My heart goes out to you. I am in the same boat and the insurance company wins everytime. I have lost some by taking a green tea diet pill. I also drink green tea in the bottles. If I hear of anything I will let you know and if you hear something please let me know. I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts,if you would like to chat...feel free to let me know. I just want to let you know I am here to support you and help in anyway I can. Carrie
Rmeoses, What state do you live in? Here in Mn. the county will pay or assit you with schooling.Did you talk to the school about applying for grants? There are free grants out there ...even from the government that will pay for your schooling. I will try and get someof those for you and I will email it to you. Carrie
I cannot believe that not one person has offered to help this mother out in anyway. I understand people are leary of donating. I will give you any and all the information needed to show this is a valid need. I am going to go get the links and pictures from the accident off the newspaper website and post it for all to see(Blood,guts and all.) Not everyone is asking for help is out to scam you. Where is our compassion....faith...empathy for others?Shame on you !
Dear SoulLite, You are definately and Angel is disguise. Time and effort you must have took to assit others is amazing and truely appreicated. When reading your page....It reminded me what Christmas was all about. It is not the gifts that matter but what you can give to each other. There were many ideas I copied and will give to the food shelf clients. Thank You! God Bless and Happy Holidays to you and yours.
Please gather your friends,family,co-workers and church members and adopt this family for the holiday.
Kathy the mother survived a horrible motorcycle accident in October.She took her 16yr old out to meet her side of the family for the 1st time in California. The man responsible for the accident had been drinking, had no license, no insurance and was not legal to be in our country. Her insurance coverage will not help her and her vacation and sick pay ran out. Kathy is finally back to Mn, She is still in the hospital...but finally off life support. She is learning to walk and talk again and has a long way to go. We take food over to the kids regularly but I cannot find anyone willing to financially assist her....even this time of year for XMAS.
I need people to send gifts, gift cards, money....whatever your heart feels, just leave me a message on here and I will get the information to you. For those of you who don't have time and just want the information...here it is.Thank you, God Bless and Happy Holidays to you and yours.
I have been a volunteer fundraiser for many events/organizations within my state.
I am disabled but that does not stop me from living,caring or assisting someone in need. Especially when their needs out weigh mine. I learned the hard way though...one time a teenager who was kicked out of his home...I let him stay with me. He stole all my rent money and medications. I did not do anything but make a report of it and it cost me to loose my home, because I believed he had a greater need for the money and I felt God would take care of me. I lost my home....but that's something else.
