                                Good Morning,  Special for Needy Family In Norfolk Va

                                I stumbled across your site when searching for families in need in the
                                norfolk area. I am the daughter of Retired Navy and Sister to current Marine.
                                We would like to donate  some toys for a family in need in the Norfolk VA
                                area. There is a whole town of Polly Pockets dolls and accessories, and
                                electronic musical instruments, they are gently used items but would be great
                                for a little girl who may have moved or a family who may be struggling. We do
                                not want to donate to an organization, we want to give these directly to a
                                family. If at all possible for you to put us in touch with a good match I
                                would greatly appreciate it. Thank You,Naomi Golladay


                                FOR MASSACHUSSETTS
                                My name is Alana Doucette and I live in Salem,Massachusetts. Recently, I
                                went through all my clothes and I am getting rid of about three regular
                                size trash bags full of girls clothes. The sizes are like a children's large
                                or adult Xsmall/Small. I'm only fifteen so I don't really know where to
                                donate clothes so I went online and Came upon your website. I have always
                                been interested in the military and hope to one day be In the Air Force. I
                                would love to donate these clothes to a family from this organization who
                                needs them, but I'm not sure how this all works. Does someone come pick the
                                clothes up or do you have to ship them to the location? I tried to find a
                                family In Massachusetts but I did not see any. Even if I would have to ship
                                it i would still be interested in donating. I am going to the cape until
                                Friday so If you reply, I won't be able to respond until then. Any
                                information about this would be helpful. Thanks :)

                                There have been some parties that state they want to help but they
                                want you to open an account at USAA or access to an account of yours
                                in which they will deposit money to help. DO NOT DO SO! Never give
                                a stranger access to your accounts. These parties seem to be in the
                                middle east Dubai most commonly and they will state they were in the
                                service and want to help. All sounds well. but do not be fooled. Do
                                not ever give anyone access to your bank account.

                                                   Families in Need of Help
                                  Sadly this past year our efforts are yielding low results. In 2012 primarily due
                                  to a bad Economy that affected our sponsors,donors and charitable entities.
                                  Of the 674 families asking for help in 2013 year only 136 were help. We thank
                                  all that contributed and helped for their efforts and kindness. Under Obama poor
                                  economy persists and many military have been dismissed in to a USA with faltering
                                  economic and job issues. So the help is really needed by these families. We refer
                                  everyone to our other sources but they too are feeling the pinch, especially with
                                  Obamas military draw down.


#201500188 12/22/2015 Apopka FL Vet USMC XMAS Cory and I have realized we need to put our pride down and ask for help. mY HUSBAND WAS INJURED OVERESEAS. He served in 10 yrs in the marine corp. We have three boys that love star wars, Legos, hot wheels clothes anything would help. We are very thankful for your time reading this! #201500188 #201500187 12/22/2015 Wasilla Alaska USMC XMAS I am a Desert Storm USMC Veteran with PTSD. I am on public assistance and a single mother. My sister unexpectedly died on Thanksgiving from blunt force trauma to the head. My family is close and we are all devastated. Whatever funds I had for rent, food, car payment, and insurance were used to buy a last minute ticket from Wasilla, Alaska to Rapid City South Dakota where my entire family resides. My parents are on a fixed income and were unable to assist us financially. We are presently on HUD VASH and owe rent for Dec and have no funds to pay for Jan rent. Our rent is $542 per month. Our car payment was three month's behind, but thank God, Operation Homefront paid $500 of it, which prevented its repossession. However, $1,000 is still due. Our insurance isn't paid. $165. Also, we have no child support payments available at this time, or food stamps. My daughter, who is 11 also has severe juvenile rheumatoid arthitis, which requires infusions twice a month in Anchorage. We need the vehicle to get there. We live in Wasilla, an hour away from Anchorage. Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.Best Wishes, #201500187 #201500186 12/22/2015 San Diego Ca Navy XMAS I am a sailor on the USS carl vinson.

We have been blessed enough to receive Christmas gifts for the kids through the base, but I am still needing a blessing to help catch up on my car payment ($840). I hate feeling like I'm asking for hand me outs, and was taught to work for what I have, but sometimes things happen, and right now I feel like this is my only ultimatum. Thank you for reading, and wishing you a beautiful holiday season. #201500185 #201500184 12/20/2015 San Diego, CA US Navy XMAS My name is Tana Grant and I am a totally and permanently disabled service connected, female veteran with a 9 y/o son, that I have joint custody of.

In brief this young man with dual citizenship was stranded in Colombia upon death of parents. To survive at age 16 joined the Colombian Army and was stationed in the interior in an area fighting narco traffikers. He contacted us a year ago and after much we managed to get him out of the military service there and have been helping him to get back the USA. He has had a rough go, was robbed and stabbed in Bogota. All his documents had to be re filed and was hospitalized due to his attack. He has managed to get most of his money to make it to the USA except for 760.00 which is the last he needs to complete all travel arrangements. It is Urgent if he can get that amount so he can get back to the US and start a new life by Christmas. #201500177 #201500176 12/16/2015 El Paso, TX US ARMY XMAS We are a family in hope of a little Christmas cheer this year.

Unfortunately my car kept breaking down and no longer works, it would cost more to repair the car than what it is worth. Due to that I have lost my job. We are struggling to put food on the table and are late on all of our bills. We cannot afford to replace my car without me being able to have the transportation to get to work.

I a disabled vet with a VA rating of 100%. Thank You Daniel Batiste #201500172 #201500171 12/15/2015 Kissimmee, Fla Army Vet Not sure if I email my request here. We are not able to travel and spend Christmas with family this year because there is no money. I am a homeless veteran and would just love a chance to spend some time with our family this year. I know others want gifts and I do feel that is important. But being homeless and away from family gives us more of an emotional breakdown. It is just myself and my daughter and I would love for her to spend time with her cousins for Christmas / toys or no toys. She just wants to be able to be with family. We are living at a homeless facility in Orlando Florida and we have cousins in Louisiana. There is no money for travel nor a car for travel. However if this is not the case, she also would like a bike. She is 8.

My husband is a 26 and 90% medically disabled from his service. While we do receive his disability (which we are truly grateful and blessed to have) our finances barely cover bills. We have 2 boys ages 4 and 9 no (will be 1 early December). My greatest fear is that my kids will wake up to nothing at Christmas. We are looking at no Christmas for either boys nor a 1st birthday for our baby boy. I know it's seems silly, but I can't stand the thought of either boy waking up Christmas morning with nothing under the tree. I know this is probably a long shot but I truly don't know where else to turn.

I am homemaker and mother of 3 beautiful baby's. We have a 9 year old, a 5 year old, and a 2 year old. We were originally stationed at Fort Sill, Ok in which we bought a house. Financially we were ok and able to make ends meet, but then we came up on orders to Fort Hood and through necessity, put our house on the market where it has been for 8 months now. After two different realtors we have been unsuccessful in selling our home. We have been paying for the last 8 months a rental house in the Ft. Hood area while our house has been on the market for sale, while still making monthly payments on our mortgage to include the electricity and water. My husband is now on a 9 month deployment to Korea which has put an even bigger strain because it's essentially supporting 3 households. We have been struggling financially and have accumulated over $10,000 in credit card bills due to the need to supplement these unexpected life events. We appreciate your website and the help it has most likely given to many veterans and their families. If we are able to receive help from your program we would greatly appreciate it and be forever grateful. Sincerely, Andrea family down for now. #20150050 #20150049 7/29/2015 Seattle Wa Army Vet Seattle, WA. Just medically retired. In need of financial assistance.

Just wanna catch up for the mean time to hold me and my family down for now. #20150049 #20150048 7/29/2015 Eastman, Ga Army My husband, after almost 17 years, was released from the Army on June 12th, 2015. Since then we have had to either choose between being homeless or living with my disabled mother in her small 2 bedroom home. It is a tight fit with 5 of us, but we are doing what we can to survive and get by. My husband just started his new job today with the VA Hospital in Dublin, GA. While we have been doing everything we can to make it, we just had our vehicle break down. It is at Firestone in Warner Robins, GA and they called this morning and it is going to be $2,253.51 to fix it. All we have we can put towards this is $800, then we are broke. Without our car he will have to lose this job with the VA, which I don't want. This job is going to open us so many opportunities for him. His drive to work is 45 minutes one way. We live in a small town in Eastman, GA and there are no cabs or buses. I have desperately reached out to everyone, begging and since he is not disabled we have been turned down every time. This morning he took my mothers 1994 van and it has no A/C or heat and the transmission is going out on it. I am desperate at this point. It seems when one thing is figured out, something else goes wrong. If anyone can help or knows of a place that can, please let me know. We are going two months behind on our car payment, but we were going to catch it up until this happened We still have rent, utilities, food, etc to get and that is hard on only $277/week in unemployment, which stops today since he has a job. We do not know when his first paycheck will be either. We also are trying to get my daughter ready for school as well. We just need a miracle right now. Thank you in advance and God Bless! #20150047 7/29/2015 Madison Heights, VA Army Madison Heights, Va...Army medically discharged.

On Saturday he was wounded. I have tried to get the money from my retirement but my accountant will not give it to me because he believes this is a scam and I can not reveal the details of Bob's mission because it is secret and their lives are already in danger. All I need is a loan of $130,000 to be repaid in full upon his return to the states. This is a solid promise of faith on my behalf, if you can help or advice me where I can get assistance will be greatly appreciated. #20150015 #20150014 4/25/2015 Panama City, Florida - USAF My name is Dawn McCallum, I have been active duty for almost 16 years.

Thank you so much! Reginald hunter and kids #20150013 #20150012 4/7/2015 Fort Bliss TX Army Hi my name is SSG Bryan A Frazier I have been serving my country for the last ten years of my life. In my time in the army I have deployed three times twice to Iraq and one to Afghanistan. I have two children from my two failed marriages both of their moms just couldn't take me being gone as much as I was so they left me. When they left they left me with all the bills. My child support is $1060 a month because of this I struggle to pay my bills. It is very hard being a NCO and asking for help from any of the programs that we have in the Army they look at you like you can manage your money. I just need a fresh start if I could back to being debt free then I know that I would be ok. I love what I do for my country and I plan on spending the next 20 years of my life doing the same. I am now in debt $30,000 that with my child support is a hard thing to maintain when I have to pay to live at the same time. If there is anyone that will help me with this it would feel like I had a huge wait taken off of my shoulders that at all times takes focus away from my job every day. Thank you so very much for taken the time to read my story and I hope that you can find it in your hart to help me continue to serve my country with and lower stress level may God always bless you in everything that you do #20150012 #20150011 4/7/2015 Little Rock, Arkansas.

                                   Hi, I am a Veteran of the U S Navy and live with my wife who is my caretaker.
                                   I do not drive much anymore and my lovely wife takes me everywhere I need to
                                   go. Due to a disability I am mostly homebound. Without her I am not sure what
                                   I would do. We have been managing on our SSDI for a number of years now, but
                                   now we are in need of car repair assistance. To those that may consider donating,
                                   know that your effort will be greatly appreciated. Respectfully, U S Navy Veteran
                                   from Crystal, Minnesota.

                                   out there, My wife and I have struggled this year as well. We did not want to
                                   be a burden to anyone and ask for help though. We have four boys, ages 16,14,9
                                   and 7. Other than their grandparents and mothers/stepfathers, there will be no
                                   gifts from us this year. If there is still time, I would love to be able to give
                                   them a Christmas. Thank you

                                   my husband is Titus Jones and I'm coming to you for help. My husband is active
                                   duty in the military, and I'm a stay at home mom with 3 kids and my niece that
                                   I have taken in. Their ages are 1, 5, 11 and 14. We have been leaving pay check
                                   to pay check for years and I have never had the guts to ask anyone for any help
                                   I have cried coutless of nights, trying to figure out how we will make it. In
                                   the last years we have accrued so much debt that we are struggling to get out
                                   of. We had one car that was paid off until my husband was hit and the car wasn't
                                   able to be fix. We got some money back for the car for a down payment for another
                                   but in looking for a car my husband got scamed and we lost alot of that money so
                                   he ended up having to take out a loan on top of the other loans we already have.
                                   I have taking steps to consolidate two of the loans to get payments down so we
                                   can make it,and be able to afford to get the kids things that they need. But with
                                   money being really low it's really hard. To top that off 4 days ago we found out
                                   that our account was put on freeze due to someone trying to deposit money into it
                                   with a fraud check. Now we don't have access to any money. If you could please
                                   help us out that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much the jones family

                                   My family is currently located in Camp Pendleton, California. My husband is a
                                   Sergeant in the US Marine Corps, and we are currently going through financial
                                   difficulty. Due to our most recent relocation from North Carolina to Camp Pendleton
                                   I have not been able to find a job. The loss of a 2nd income to our family has
                                   made it impossible to keep up financially. My husband deployed from January to
                                   August of 2014, and we have used every penny to attempt catching up. This Christmas
                                   is the hardest of times, since we we have no extra money to spare outside of our
                                   bills. We are desperately trying to make sure Santa comes this year. We are hoping
                                   for any type of assistance that would help us. Our biggest help would be to pay 1
                                   month of mortgage at $1140 as this would give me some time  to work with our mortgage
                                   company and for me to get a job. If this does not work, ANYTHING WOULD HELP. Car
                                   payment of $180, Food cards for groceries, gas cards, etc. The goal is for the
                                   financial assistance to help support our family while allowing me more time to
                                   find a job during these tough times. We would be most grateful for any type of help.
                                   Thank you so very much.

                                   stationed in Connecticut back in March. Since we arrived  my wife has been

                                   behind on our bills. Our debt is as follows:a credit card for $2,900,a personal

                                   $10,750 loan is from a negative equity when we sold one of our vehicles last year.
                                   At the end of every pay check I am usually negative in my account. We have
                                   attempted to sell the two vehicles we currently have but every dealership in our
                                   area has offered us about half of what is still owed on the loans. I truely do not
                                   know what to do. Please contact me I truly do not know what to do. Please help

                                   to get our kids something from their wish lists this year. I just started

                                   dependent on my VA Disability for income.  The VA has begun recouping money
                                   for a debt I incurred while deployed to Afghanistan in 2010 (I was 30% disabled
                                   when I deployed, and they did not stop paying me).  This month, I received
                                   117 dollars to live on instead of the 1844 a month I usually get.  I am not
                                   able to pay my bills, or provide anything that looks like Christmas for my two
                                   sons. (7 and 8).  Any help would be appreciated.

                                   after serving 13 years due to a service related injury that occured while I
                                   was in Iraq on tour. I did four tours during my service.We live in Chipley
                                   Florida.  We have two boys and three girls. They truly are the most deserving
                                   kids. They work together and are very respectful and polite. They are caring
                                   and smart and work hard in school.  But due to my wife being sick and just
                                   having our baby daughter she hasnt been able to work. So things are difficult.
                                   We just want to be able to show our kids that the Christmas season is a happy
                                   one. They give so much to others and help out so much. Every night they pray

                                   out of work since 22 April 2013. Still waiting on the VA. Well, while waiting
                                   my family home is in forclosure, my power will be cut off tomorrow and the
                                   other utilities will follow shortly after. I hate asking for anything. But,
                                   my 3 children will not have a Christmas this year. This is very heart wrenching,
                                   one is 9, 11, and 17. Thanks and any help will be greatly appreciated.

                                   I returned from deployment 6 months ago and immediately things started changing.
                                   My middle daughter is getting married in 6 months and my youngest daughter got
                                   excepted to the University of Arizona. The only issue I am having is I do not know
                                   how I am going to get my daughter home for Christmas. I simply do not have funds to
                                   buy her a plane ticket. This her first year away from home for school and after
                                   paying bills, a wedding and getting a few presents I can't get her home. Is there
                                   any way we could receive some help with getting a round trip plane ticket from Tucson
                                   Arizona to Regan national. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If not maybe names
                                   of organizations that would be willing to help. Thank you for your time.

                                   they were the best years of his life. We're honored to serve & consider
                                   ourselves very lucky to have our family together! This transition has been
                                   substantially harder than we expected & as per Murphy's law we've hit every road
                                   bump along the way. Just trying to stay positive. We have 2 amazing kids who
                                   could definitely use a little holiday magic after this massive transition. We're
                                   still trying to pay this months rent so Christmas isn't looking so good. Our

                                   Saint Paul, MN  Army Vet
                                   I'm a recent US Army veteran. Currently in Saint Paul, MN I was stationed in
                                   Fort Shafter Scholfield Barracks in Oahu, HI. My family consists of my wife
                                   Ronda, daughter(s) Suzie and Malia, son Donavan, and of course can't forget my
                                   furry child (cat) Sadie... Haha.. I am writing due to being in crisis mode. I 
                                   feel like when one is packing for deployment and has no e-tool and can't afford
                                   to buy one. We were homeless a year as a family and even longer separately.
                                   Finally by the grace of God, we were brought together to save ourselves and each
                                   other. It's been very difficult but we have always gotten through, HOOOAH!! I'm
                                   asking, begging; please help my family but not for me for them. I owe them,they
                                   are my hero's they saved me and they made me (mission) compete.At beginning of
                                   month we moved into a pretty decent rental house through HUD and got a voucher,
                                   however we have nothing to fill our house. We had gone to bridgings and picked out
                                   couple things, but unfortunately day prior to picking up furniture; I was pulled
                                   over and arrested for no proof of ins, and driving without headlights on. My wife
                                   was unable to make appt and couldn't get the things, not that she would have able
                                   to move them anyways. We both are pending social security and RSDI on top of me
                                   pending service connected as well.The fridge doesnt work. We barley have food
                                   can't buy full meals. We have clothes that are not 6 sizes too big.We are trying
                                   to get started but can't with nothing, nada,zip, zero, zilch.I'm scared if I can't
                                   provide a Christmas for them that's goin to be the end of us as a family and
                                   resulting in the end of me. I can not and will not ever be able to see a life with
                                   out my family,my Ronda & kids are my everything they mean the world to me.. I'm
                                   lost scared and confused

                                   Fort Lewis,Washington US Army
                                   Unfortunately my family and I needed to return back to the U.S. On a compassionate
                                   reassignment from Germany. My daughter was diagnosed with a very rare autoimmune
                                   disease which could not be serviced in Germany. We arrived back in the Tacoma area
                                   in October. Due to the move most of our savings were wiped out for the shipment of
                                   our extra vehicle to and from, pets, rental cars and so on. To make matters worse
                                   when recalculating our income for Washington they over paid my husband and we did
                                   not find out until the beginning of December in which they went ahead and took it
                                   back leaving us short on rent which we had to get a loan to pay. I have three
                                   teenage girls 14, 14 & 16 in which I will not be able to get any Christmas gifts
                                   for and it just breaks my heart. I promise to pay it forward as soon as I can if
                                   there is someone who can help. Thank you so much God bless.

                                   student since July and hasn't been able to work, and has needed to spend a

                                   I am writing this for my husband an E-7 in the army. We have just been stationed
                                   at FT. Irwin CA. This will be our 3rd move in 3 years so it has been impossible
                                   for me to keep a job to help out. We just had our 5th baby in July and  are
                                   struggling to get back on track. We have exhausted all of our resources any help
                                   anyone could do would be greatly appreciated!

                                   Merry Christmas! I am an e3 stationed out of Fort Hood Texas.. My wife and I
                                   have gotten stuck in a hard spot between my wife losing her contract job on
                                   post early in November and myself getting ready to deploy for the second time
                                   next month. That being said We have fallen significantly behind on bills living
                                   on an e3 income and Christmas for our 5 year old little girl is in jeopardy. I
                                   hate asking for help and feel irresponsible for not having more of a savings,
                                   but this is a tough lesson learned for my family and I pray that my child will
                                   not have to suffer because of it. Thank you and I hope that you all have a Great
                                   Holiday Season.
                                              Thank you  Joyce Leighton

                                   I am writing to request assistance for my family during this holiday
                                   season. I am married to a soldier in the NC National Guard,E4, who suffers from
                                   PTSD. We have 5 children together. Recently he beat me fairly bad and our family
                                   has separated. I've missed work due to that as well as my little ones being
                                   sick. I feel as if I can't catch a break. Due to me having the kids and having
                                   to move things are very tight. I would love for my kids to be able to open
                                   something come Christmas morning. Due to me having to pay bills and still not
                                   having enough to cover everything buying gifts is out of the question. I know
                                   it's fairly late, but if anyone can help me I'd appreciate it so much.

                                   I am stationed in Orlando Fl, with the US Army and recently was moved from
                                   Fort Lee Virginia. I have 3 wonderful kids 9, 7, and 3. Due to the PCS my
                                   wife has been out of a job since last June. She is hoping to start working
                                   by February with Orange County Sheriff's office. We have struggled to stay
                                   afloat with this move and have finally sank. BAH does not cover rent and all
                                   the additional bills that go along with housing. We were unable to pay rent
                                   this month and now we are $1675.00 behind. With Christmas coming along I am
                                   not even sure my kids will have anything to wake up to Christmas morning. If
                                   Someone could please help with my rent that would help my family out
                                   tremendously and at least we can spend time together in our own home.

                                   kids 15 year old, 11 year old, 3 year old & a 1 year old. Our oldest is in
                                   band and that alone puts us on a tight budget but recently I decided to go
                                   back to school. I know I need to do this to help my family BUT this has put
                                   us in $10,000 worth of debit. I have basically added $200 a month on our
                                   already tight budget. We're having problems not only paying this but buying
                                   food, Christmas and utilities.

                                   of this Christmas. Their ages are 11 (boy-size 10), 6 (girl-size 7),
                                   4(boy-size 4). I would be thankful for any donation given no matter how big
                                   or small. Thank you.

                                   I am a single mother in the Army stationed at Fort Meade, MD. I have two teen
                                   boys and I support my elderly father.  I depleted my savings to pay for the
                                   repairs for a new starter and alternator, in a span of two weeks, if not I
                                   would not have been able to get to work. I have been trying to recover, even
                                   taking a hardship withdrawal from my TSP to pay my rent. It truly pains my
                                   heart to know that I am unable to provide for them at the most joyous time of
                                   the year.

                                   little holiday cheer this season in being able to provide at least one gift
                                   to each of our three children. We have no Christmas tree, lights or anything
                                   else to at least brighten their moods.  Any help would be appreciated. Thank
                                   You Ms. Beverly

                                   It's been just one of those years. The short version of why we are needing
                                   help is: Husband just medically retired from the military after 12yrs of
                                   service. Our youngest son (4yrs old) is Type 1 Diabetic and our oldest (19yrs
                                   old) is Type 2 diabetic. With very little income coming in at the moment,
                                   times are real hard right now. Bills still need to get paid no matter what. I
                                   would just like a little help to either put some gifts under a tree for my
                                   kids and/or help paying a bill. Thank you for reading my request.

                                   Greetings and blessings to all. We are an ARMY family of 5 who are in need of
                                   a little holiday help this year. Recently we've fallen on hard times due to a

                                   exercise. I am unable to work due to a debilitating disease I have. Please
                                   please any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, An Army Wife

                                   My name is SPC McGee from Westland, Michigan. I am looking for financial
                                   assistance after losing my job because of the inability to perform the
                                   required tasks due to an injury I received from my deployment to Afghanistan.
                                   I am in the Michigan Army National Guard, 1462 Trans Co.  I was working for
                                   AT&T but, as I stated before, I was let go because I could not work fast and
                                   efficiently enough because of the physical demand the job requires.  My wife
                                   is 7 months pregnant and I am trying my best to make ends meet and not stress
                                   her out anymore because her pregnancy is high risk.

                                   I am a 52 year old Army Disabled War Veteran, due to injury and illness from
                                   my combat tour in Iraq serving under the 101st. My family of 5 are in financial
                                   hardship due to my heart illness, and attack early this year, and our early
                                   dismissal of Bankruptcy. We have unpaid rent utilities and our vehicle needs
                                   tires which we use to make my appointments in Indianapolis.
                                   My VA claim for my retroactive pay has been denied on 26 Nov. 2014 and will
                                   now have go through the appeal process which will leave us, facing eviction
                                   from our home and or disconnection of utilities, due to the condition of our
                                   vehicles tires I will have to cancel appointments at the VA, for as much as
                                   we are in need of food we will no longer be able to pay for gas. My back pay
                                   was our only hope to get caught up on bills. Thank you

                                   My husband is medically retired from the army.  He has severe PTSD and is in
                                   therapy. We are unable to live in the same house at this time due to his violent
                                   rages and or flashbacks from his 4 tours overseas. We are carrying to households
                                   at this time, ( I am currently one month behind on my mortgage due to car
                                   problems)  as you can imagine it is very difficult and this is just heart breaking
                                   to our family.  The boys put on a brave face; they miss their dad but know this is
                                   the safest environment for us at this time.  My husband is aware of his mood swings
                                   and knows where and how they come about.  He has fully accepted the things he has
                                   done with a grain of salt. We are both working on us, I also am in therapy. I was
                                   diagnosed with PTSD this summer. We have been through four deployment

                                   We are a family of 8 looking for some help for Christmas. We have 6 kids ages
                                   10 to 20. Things have been really hard since my husband returned from Afghanistan.
                                   He has deployed twice and has been in Army 20 years. He is dealing with the
                                   disability application process. He has back problems, ringing in the ears and
                                   sleep problems. We both work but just having food in the house is a struggle.
                                   I would like to relieve my husband's stress with him knowing the kids will have
                                   Christmas. We are looking for a Walmart gift card by December 20 so I can get
                                   them presents.Thank you and Merry Christmas!

                                   I am a single military dad with full custody of my 3 children living on Fort
                                   Stewart, GA , I have two boys and a girl ages 4(boy), 6(girl), and 9 (boy). I
                                   was awarded full custody of my kids because after returning from my last
                                   deployment found that  my exspouse had another man living in my house. I have
                                   been active duty Army for the last 11 years and have deployed 5 times throught
                                   Iraq, Southeast Asia and Africa. Throughout my marriage of 10 years my ex spouse
                                   ruined my credit and destroyed me financially, now that I'm a single dad trying
                                   to provide for my kids, my financial hardship caused  from my past is preventing
                                   me from being able to survive day to day. Have sold the majority of my personal
                                   things I acquired throughout the world just to ensure my kids didnt have to go
                                   without. This year I am unable to give them Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas
                                   because every penny I have goes to groceries, daycare, and gas for work. I have
                                   tried numerous organizations that assist military families, because I'm a
                                   Sergeant First Class I am NOT eligible for assistance. I writing this email out
                                   of faith and desperation hoping that there is someway for me to give my kids a
                                   good thanksgiving and Christmas.

                                   My husband is currently on deployment. I had to recently undergo medical
                                   procedures to take care of a possible ovarian cyst, as part of a genetic
                                   disorder I carry. Tricare did not cover the cost of these procedures. I now
                                   owe the medical center $250. I know it is fairly low for medical debts, but
                                   we still do not have enough money for this procedure. Because I am unemployed
                                   and my husband is barely an E-4, we are battling bills as it is already.
                                   Thank you for reading this. My prayers go out to the others on this page.

                                   mom.  We have 11 kids with #12 due in January.  We are in need of help this year
                                   being that my husband is getting him self ready for deployment and buying what
                                   he needs.  We had to take what money we had set aside for Christmas and use it
                                   on Electric bill and water, because we were behind and they shut our water off.
                                   We have 6 boys and 5 girls with the baby being a surprise.  The kids ages are
                                   18,17,14,13,12,10,9,8,6,3,and 1.  This will be our first Christmas without my
                                   husband and doing it alone is going to be hard enough.  Any kind of help would
                                   be greatly appreciated.  No matter how small or how big.  Thank you and god bless.

                                   guard but has been active guard for the last 5 years. But since all the
                                   budget cuts they cant reinstate his active orders now he's out of a job and
                                   i work but just enough to cover the bills. Cant even afford health care for
                                   our 3 kids. I seen you help families for christmas? That would be awesome
                                   since they will be getting pretty much nothing this year.  We are in Elkton

                                   it would lift a weight off his shoulders. We would be so thankful for any help.

                                   My name is SFC Blue I am stationed at Ft. Lee, VA and I am in the Army. I
                                   have been in the military for 13 years and I am a single mother of a 14 year
                                   old daughter and 11 year old boys. If possible I would like a sponsor for the
                                   holidays for my children. My babies dont ask for much and they appreciate what
                                   I do for them. My twins birthday is 5 days after Christmas, 30 Dec, so we
                                   balance those two days with gifts. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

                                   My husband is an active duty Marine and we just moved to Wichita, Kansas
                                   two weeks ago. This move has been extremely difficult on all of us, but
                                   it has been most difficult on our 7 year old son. With me currently not
                                   working and us living on one paycheck, I have no idea how we will give our
                                   son the Christmas he deserves. We have no extra money for Christmas and it
                                   breaks my heart. I want nothing more than to see that sparkle in my sons
                                   eyes again as he opens gifts Christmas morning. Thank you & God bless!!

                                   out she had her baby 3 months early. They have had several issues since
                                   discharge but right now her and the baby need to get to Dr. Appointments and
                                   their car has failed on them. They have no way to get to the V.A. facility for
                                   medical care. I hope someone can help to get the car repaired. They are living
                                   on her disability alone and cannot afford to fix the car. I want to help but I
                                   am on disability myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Family in need

                                   We are an Air Force family of 4. This past year I have started having medical
                                   issues and the Air Force is now having me for through a medical review process.
                                   I have to make multiple trips a week to the closest VA which is 93 miles away.
                                   Just close enough that Tricare does not reimburse for travel. This has caused
                                   a bit of financial strain on our family. It would be greatly appreciated if we
                                   could get some help with groceries.   Maybe a Walmart or commissary gift card?
                                   Thank you for your consideration.

                                   happened about 6'months ago and after the attack and head trauma it has only

                                   to receive I just don't want our amazing daughter to go without when she spends
                                   her time giving back in so many ways from the dog rescues, feeding homeless,

                                   My name is Chance Wunderlin and I love in Prairie Grove, Arkansas, and I'm
                                   serving in the Marine Corps. I watched a video the other day about Pranksters
                                   and they helped a young female Marine get custody of her younger brothers and
                                   there was a link to this website. I'm not one to ask for help, but at this
                                   point I absolutely don't know what to do anymore. I'm engaged and we have three
                                   children together. The home we have now, mobile home, is completely falling
                                   apart and with the approaching winter we're at a dead end, we have really no
                                   way to keep them warm due to no central heat/ air and the space heaters we
                                   have keep blowing the breaker. We can't seem to get on top of things with bills
                                   stacking up and it's just so overwhelming. Thank you for your time.Semper Fi

                                   My name is Brandi Perry. We are a Coast Guard family. I'm located in Navarre,
                                   FL while my husband is stationed in Boston, MA. I moved my three sons here to
                                   be close to family. My husband is deployed 8 months out of the year and we
                                   have an autistic son and two other special needs children. We sold almost
                                   everything we owned to come here. Bills have overwhelmed me and I now have

                                   My name is Vanessa. I'm currently serving in the USAF. I live in Odenton, MD.
                                   The past 3 (almost 4 years) I have been in an abusive marriage. About a year
                                   ago I'd finally had enough, and went to my chain of command for help. My husband
                                   was removed from the household, but 4 months or so later he moved back in. Things
                                   got so much worse, and in April he moved out for good, leaving me with a 2 year
                                   old and all of the household bills. I've moved since then and the move and legal
                                   fees due to the divorce and custody had put a huge burden on my finances. I've
                                   gone to air force aid, and although it definitely helped, that is now another
                                   bill that I'm paying back. I am trying to keep this short, so for more information
                                   I can be reached via email. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

                                   Hi, my name is Miranda I was hoping that my 2 children(14 year-old boy and 10
                                   year-old girl) get a little help this year for Christmas. It has been extremely
                                   hard financially for my family. My husband got out of the Army at the end of
                                   February after 14 years due to being to long in the same rank and with the draw
                                   downs he was one of them. He tried everything to stay in, but with no luck, he
                                   had to get out. He is currently still serving as a Army Reservist one weekend
                                   a month .  I have been searching and applying for jobs but with no luck. We are
                                   behind on bills right now and trying as best we can to catch up and that is
                                   making it hard to get Christmas gifts for our children. I was just  hoping to
                                   get a little help this year.

                                   nephews. My wife and I have 3 girls, 5, 4 and 2 and just took in the twins.
                                   They are 13. As you can see this has been a financial hardship but also a
                                   blessing. My wife stayed at home but has just begun working weekends at a
                                   grocery store, and it's only enough to cover extra food. We reach out to anyone
                                   from the bottom of our hearts for assistance in helping the twins have a
                                   memorable Christmas despite the hardships they've faced. God bless you as you
                                   give and Merry Christmas.

                                   My husband just got discharged from the military in March 2014. We have been
                                   struggling terribly after he's separation from the military. We are in the
                                   process of getting evicted at the moment (we have proof) and we have very
                                   little food in the house. All we want is to be able to give our 4 kids a
                                   Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Our kids understand that we are facing
                                   difficult times and they already know we might not provide gifts for them
                                   this year, but we would at least like to provide them a nice dinner. If
                                   anyone could please help us, we would be forever grateful. Thank you. God
                                   bless you and Happy holidays to all.

                                   with having a vehicle repair the day we left post. We broke down several
                                   times along the way & also got frauded. We are still fighting the fraud issue
                                   & scrounged all change we could find for food. The place we are living let us
                                   move in but we still have to pay the deposit & such. Food is running very low.
                                   We have called around for help. We have a child & anything at this point will
                                   help us.

                                   I am a disabled Vet woman who has my two grandchildren ages 16 (Boy) and 7
                                   years old (girl) living with me. My daughter has abandoned them. She does
                                   nothing for them I am their Grandmother by Power of Attorney. I did this so
                                   my grandchildren would not be taken away from me. I am on a fixed income I
                                   have to pay all bills first. The money left I divide between groceries and an
                                   allowance for the grandchildren. My granddaughter has seizures. Both of them
                                   have been through a lot, some have been negative. When my husband died I
                                   thought I was the child and my grandson the adult. He took charge of everything
                                   He is my hero. The reason I contacted you is namely I need help with Christmas.
                                   Whatever can be done for the three of us will be greatly appreciated. I don't
                                   want my grandchildren to wake Christmas morning to find there is nothing for
                                   them to open. I cant even afford decorations or a Christmas tree. We really
                                   need help. Thank you/

                                   My name is Patrick Lowrance I served in Iraq and Afghanistan. I have been
                                   diagnosed with PTSD, TBI, Spinal Stenosis, arthritis of spine and neck,
                                   migraines, carpal tunnel just to name a few.  Five weeks ago I had my
                                   physical and mental exams for the VA for my eligibility in Danville for my
                                   claims.  The physical exam I guess is still waiting the return of it from the
                                   doctor to see where we are at on that stand point and the mental exam the
                                   doctor said he was putting me in for 100% compensation. I do not know the
                                   protocol of all this, but my family is suffering and bills are backed up and
                                   my family is still suffering from all of this financing and mentally. There
                                   is suppose to be a hardship on my record for all this. It has been WELL OVER
                                   FIVE weeks since I had my exams. The mental exam had been turned in and they
                                   are currently awaiting the physical exam. I have not worked in almost a year
                                   now due to my conditions. I have four daughters and need help providing some
                                   sort of Christmas for them. They are 15, 15, 13, and 13. Thanks so much

                                   I am Danielle married to my husband of 14 years. He is in the Navy and just
                                   recently became E-6. We have 5 beautiful children all ranging from 6 to 15
                                   years in age. We are in Panama City,Florida. This has been a very tough year
                                   for us. Unexpected bills, Two  back to back surgeries, all while trying to
                                   get my degree as a medical assistant. Its been extremely hard living pay check
                                   to pay check.My heart is breaks at the thought of not being able to give a
                                   good Christmas to our children. When things couldn't get any worse, we are now
                                   down to one vehicle due to one needing repairs. Ive thought of dropping school
                                   in order to find a job and help my husband, but I am almost finished. That would
                                   not be smart on my part. I will push forward. We are a team and I know that we
                                   will not be struggling forever. Getting closer and closer to the holidays, we
                                   could use anything that anyone has to offer.Anything, including food helps and
                                   our family would be forever great full. Thank you for taking the time to read
                                   my story. Happy Holidays and may God bless you and yours!

                                   National Guard. Separation from active duty was abrupt and unplanned due to
                                   cut backs and downsizing and left my family scrambling. I am doing the best I
                                   can between work and school to provide a better life for my wife and kids,
                                   however, there is just no extra money for extras, unfortunately this includes
                                   Christmas. My three kids and wife deserve the world and if you could help me
                                   give them a piece of that I would be forever grateful. Blessings Sgt. Robertson

                                   and all my money taken. I'm a single parent without a penny to my name, and
                                   to complicate all this mess more I had an unexpected very large deduction
                                   from my pay that left us with nothing to live off for the month. My home is
                                   in foreclosure, don't know if I can save it, my perfect credit is shot, I have
                                   a turn off notice, no food, gas. I am in need of a real miracle here, but
                                   anything anything at all would be so greatly appreciated.

                                   Hi, I am a US Army Veteran. My husband is currently a E-5 stationed at Ft. Bliss,
                                   TX. We have 6 kids together. I am going to school full-time, we depend on my
                                   husband income to survive. We live paycheck to paycheck as most military families.
                                   With all of our bills and child support we pay for his two children, we cant not
                                   afford to buy Christmas this year for our children. We have four boys and Two girls
                                   total. I am only asking for help with the four children living with us. Our oldest
                                   is 8 years old name Hannah, we have a 7 year old boy named Tristan, a 6 year old
                                   boy named Alexander, and a 3 years old girl named Elisabeth.

                                   Times are tough now. I actually have decided to quit school to get a job
                                   but since I do not speak Spanish I am having a very hard time finding a job
                                   here in El Paso, even with a veteran and spouse preference. We are not able
                                   to buy even one present a piece, but my children are grateful for what they do
                                   receive. They have had great Christmas before, I am very embarrassed to even
                                   be asking. I just want them to be able to open one present a piece. I have
                                   researched Christmas help and found Operation Home front, but they are not
                                   doing a toy event here this year, then I found this site. I pray someone can
                                   make this miracle happen for my children. Thank you for your time.

                                   I am a soldier trying to get back on my feet. I am having trouble seeking
                                   employment that doesn't hinder my service connected injuries. I live in the
                                   Plano Texas and going back and forth to the doctor. When I do work I looks
                                   bad for me leaving going to constant doctors appointments so trying to find
                                   a job that can work around that. I am only getting VA disability and I really
                                   could use the help in paying my rent. Anyway you can help will be a blessing.

                                   I am looking fro help for Christmas: What do you need from me. I just don't
                                   know where to begin...My husband is medically retired from the army. He has
                                   severe PTSD and is in therapy. We are unable to live in the same house at
                                   this time due to his violent rages and or flashbacks from his 4 tours overseas
                                   We are carrying two households at this time, as you can imagine it is very
                                   difficult and this is just heart breaking to our family. The boys put on a
                                   brave face, they miss their dad but know this is the safest environment for
                                   us at this time. My husband is aware of his mood swings and knows where and
                                   how they come about. He has fully accepted the things he has done with a
                                   grain of salt. We are both working on us, I also am in therapy. I was diagnosed
                                   with PTSD this summer

                                   from duty on November 3rd and now I have no idea how I am going to give my
                                   kids a Christmas this year. I am a three time combat war vet who was honorable
                                   discharged and I would have continued to server my country honorably but I was
                                   told I was no longer of value to the United State Marine Corps. I have no job
                                   prospects and my wife is disabled so she is unable to work. Please help us give
                                   our kids a Christmas. Thank you and God Bless.

                                   Good Morning,                                 
                                   My husband and I are in a slight financial rut and we are seeking any and all
                                   financial support to manage our debt. We are located in Bloomington, MN (55425)
                                   I am an Army Natoinal Guard member and my husband is a  disabled Marine vet.
                                   We recently moved and with that, our conctract cancellation fee for our old
                                   apartment is $2800(2x rent) which is due by 11/15/2014. So far we have $1400.
                                   We are also behind on other minor bills but the $2800 is our most concern.

                                   Hi  I'm Jessica, with Christmas coming soon I'm starting to worry. We recently
                                   PCS to Fort Lee and haven't been able to pick ourselves back up since. Money
                                   has been super tight to the fact that we go days without needed things in our
                                   home. We are a family of 8..ages 2f, 8m, twin 13m, 16f and 17f. I was hoping
                                   someone out there could help with a gift for each of my child so they can have
                                   something under the tree. I can't bear the thought of them not having a gift
                                   or even a real holiday meal. Anything would help.
                                   Thank u in advance, completely terrified for my family this holiday season.

                                   financially struggling. We have three boys 10, 4, 2, who need help. We have
                                   finally made it to a budget, but still need a little push over the hill. We
                                   are not asking for help with Christmas because we have much more pressing
                                   needs. If anyone could help us with two weeks of groceries we would greatly
                                   appreciate it. We barely have enough to last for a few days so we are reaching
                                   out in hopes. Our oldest also needs a winter jacket, if anyone is able to help
                                   us we would be very appreciative.Adam M. Lewis

                                   I am PFC Joshua Matthews of the national guard reserves.. I am currently
                                   living in one small bedroom with my girlfriend and daughter after having to
                                   do a buyout at my apartment. I recently got approved for a apartment that
                                   fits my budget for the monthly rent but the deposit of 1400 dollars doesn't.
                                   I'm seeking help to pay the deposit so I and my family can get out of this
                                   room and have space and I can stop stressing. If you can help at all it'd be
                                   greatly appreciated.

                                   Carrollton GA  Vet
                                   I am the wife of Michael Klingler an Afghanistan
                                   veteran. We got out of the Marine Corps in July of 2012. My husband was a
                                   Machine Gunner so getting out with his skills has been extremely hard to find
                                   jobs. Within our first year being out my husband was in a mental hospital.
                                   While there he was diagnosed with PTSD, explaining why his moods and violent
                                   outburst was so bad.  He was put on medication that has done WONDERS. The
                                   PTSD held him back from going to school and getting a job. It has still been
                                   a constant battle for him trying his absolute best to provide for his family.
                                   Last month we moved two hours away for a GREAT opportunity to work as an
                                   apprentice for Abra Auto Body and Glass. We know the apprentice position
                                   wasn't paying the greatest at first and in the near future all the hard work
                                   and long hours will pay off. The moved set as back more than we thought it
                                   would, and now I can see the hopelessness come over him once again. We have
                                   honestly tried our hardest to do this ourselves but I now feel like it is time
                                   to reach out and ask for help. I would LOVE to do anything and everything to
                                   take just some of the weight off of his shoulders. Our family's are two hours
                                   away and childcare is just too much to afford right now so I can not get a job
                                   to help. I stay home with our two daughters and hope and pray for some kind
                                   of miracle to come our way. I have tried so many vet help websites but we never
                                   meet all the requirements. I am just asking for some direction for some
                                   financial help. Just enough to help us through this tough time. ANY information
                                   AT ALL would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking time out to read
                                   this, and I will be praying for some response.

                                   My husband is in the process of Medically retiring from the Army, but as of
                                   right now we are stationed at Fort Benning. We are hoping that we will be
                                   able to find someone willing to help us for the holidays. We have 2 children
                                   at home and one 19 year old who is following in his father's footsteps and
                                   has graduated AIT and stationed at FT Hood. Are Children at home  a 11yr old
                                   Autistic boy who is wanting a Keyboard to learn how to play and our 12 year
                                   old daughter who also has a love for music and make up. Neither one of our
                                   children are wanting or asking for much, they both see how hard life is and
                                   understand the struggles parents go through. My husband is very hard working
                                   and is having a very difficult time with coming to terms that his Army career
                                   will be over in just a few short months. Thank you for taking the time to
                                   read this and Thank you for considering helping us. Whether you choose to
                                   help us or another family on this site, you will never understand how much we
                                   all appreciate people like you!

                                   We have 5 other children and soon down to one income (AD Air force). The
                                   nearest hospital with a pediatric oncologist is 1 hour away and we are driving
                                   constantly back and forth to be there for our son. We are falling behind on
                                   simple bills such as car insurance, home telephone and cell bills which is
                                   needed to communicate with our family and support system back home, work and
                                   our other children. We have received $200 in commissary gift cards from the
                                   chaplain office so far which we are grateful for but financial help is really

                                   My husband is a Staff Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps and has served
                                   a few tours overseas. He is stationed in Southern California and works at MCAS
                                   Miramar and we live in Temecula California. Recently back in May he was driving
                                   to work on a Tuesday morning on his motorcycle when he was hit by a car
                                   resulting in breaking his back. He is still recovering and getting procedures
                                   done etc. It was the scariest phone call to receive! Even though we have
                                   insurance it still cost us money because we had to get a car and now have a
                                   payment that was unforeseen and the cost of fuel is more as well. Due to our
                                   financial changes we are unable to provide Christmas gifts and a proper holiday
                                   for our children and we are hoping someone or a business could sponsor our
                                   family. It is very hard and humbling to ask for help and admit we are in need.
                                   Thank you so much for you time and we hope you all have a blessed holiday

                                   My husband was just recently medically retired and we are in the process of
                                   transitioning out of the Army. We will be moving back home to Iowa just a
                                   couple weeks before Christmas. He has a permanent and total disability
                                   incurred from combat in Afghanistan.  We have a few months where we will be
                                   waiting for his VA benefits and income to kick in and could use any help
                                   possible. We have 4 children. 2 girls who are 6 and 7. 2 boys who are 3 and 1.
                                   We do simple christmas at our house where everyone gets a stocking and 3
                                   presents ( something to read, something they want, and something they need)
                                   and a new set of PJs. We would love help to make this Christmas a success as
                                   we transition into our new chapter. Thank you for your time.

                                   Have you heard the saying "when it rains it pours"? Well...... 
                                   My husband joined the military in 2007, after our construction company fell
                                   with the economy and left enormous amounts of debt.  He took full
                                   responsibility for our family by providing all our needs, financially,
                                   physically, mentally and emotionally.
                                   During deployment he enlisted for an additional eight years to give our
                                   family stability.  Unfortunately, after serving overseas to Afghanistan, he
                                   suffered several service-connected injuries and was medically discharged with
                                   a 90% disability.
                                   "Starting over again" seemed to just be our destiny.  Due to unforeseen
                                   expenses we are currently trying to avoid foreclosure, repossession and
                                   utility shut-off.  We are asking for help; (food, utility, mortgage, vehicle)
                                   anything would be a blessing. Having assistance would help rebuild my families'
                                   moral, give encouragement, and hopes to finally see a RAINBOW. .   .

                                   I am wife and caregiver of a retired marine. My husband suffers severely from
                                   PTSD and TBI. For almost two months he has many episodes of extreme paranoia,
                                   delusions, fits of anger and rage and very bizarre behavior. In that little
                                   time, he has taken everything we own out of our home and put into storage,
                                   cancelled service on utilities and various accounts, taken both vehicles and
                                   had me terminated as caregiver ( my only source of money) also, he was
                                   arrested for reasons he won't disclose. He has left me with nothing. As of
                                   now he is being held on a 5150 at David Grant medical centers behavioral
                                   health ward but will soon be discharged. I don't know how to get him the help
                                   he needs but am willing to do the work if pointed in the right direction. I
                                   am also in dire need of financial assistance, emotional support/counseling,
                                   and many other resources. I would be grateful for any help you are able to
                                   offer me. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you

                                   We are living paycheck to paycheck and the holidays are fast approaching. My
                                   husband is a 25 and 60% medically disabled from his service. While we do
                                   receive his disability (which we are truly grateful and blessed to have) our
                                   finances barely cover bills. We have a 3 year old boy and I am currently 8
                                   months pregnant with our second little boy (who is due Dec 15.) My greatest
                                   fear is that my kids will wake up to nothing at Christmas and that we won't
                                   have everything needed for our new baby. We are looking at having a newborn
                                   and no Christmas for his big brother. I know this is probably a long shot but
                                   I truly don't know where else to turn.  Thank you for taking the time to read
                                   my email and God Bless!!

                                   Greetings we are a military family of six. I am a stay at home mom actively
                                   seeking full time employment. Our family is stationed at Fort Bragg N.C. We
                                   are seeking any assistance to help with funeral expenses. My husband's mother
                                   passed away unexpectedly, with no life insurance.My husband's  income is our
                                   only source of income, and his income covers our monthly bills.  During this
                                   difficult time in our lives we are unable to pay for funeral and travel

                                   HELLO. We are an Army family of four and have financial hardships and debt
                                   due to a series of unfortunate events.  Our little girl is 4 months and baby
                                   boy is 1 and 1/2. My father passed away a couple of months ago after battling
                                   cancer. This coupled with a deployment, a new baby and having to make costly
                                   repairs to our vehicle have caused us to get very behind.  Any help would be

                                   My husband retired from the Marines July 2014. We moved closer to family
                                   olivehurst ca and he finally was blessed with a job.  We were able to finally
                                   get caught up on bills,  only for him to be laid off again.. We are asking
                                   for help for Christmas for our boys Jake 13 Thai 10 ( 11 Dec 20th) and Kyan 9

                                   boys don't ask for much & we'd love to give them something nice for Christmas.
                                   Maybe a trip to Disney (they've never been) they'd be happy with anything I
                                   truly am blessed with amazing kids.  Thai his bday is Dec 20th &for his bday
                                   he's asked that instead of bringing him a gift that his friends bring a gift
                                   that he can donate to our local church.  Please bless my kids this holiday

                                   was born with several serious genetic conditions and is not expected to live
                                   beyond the age of 10.  She is blind in her right eye, deaf in her right ear

                                   like to give them a nice Christmas meal and Christmas but in our situation we
                                   can't. We are in desperate in need of help for clothes, age appropriate toys,

                                   Good evening, my name is SPC Zachary Keyes from San Antonio, TX, currently
                                   stained at JBLM, WA. I am a mobilized Army reservist currently. My wife and
                                   two daughters are still in TX as I am only here for a year. In short, we're
                                   not getting paid what we are supposed to and we are struggling. My wife has
                                   no money left on her paycheck, and I am at the tail end of mine. We're
                                   drowning in debt and new bills seem to pop up daily. I've got a government
                                   travel card that is delinquent $350 because they keep rejecting my travel
                                   voucher. I don't know what I'm requesting, I just need help for my family

My family and I live in Arizona and we have recently been impacted by the horrendous storm that passed through last Monday.  
                                   The rain was so heavy that it caused two leaks to develop in our roof resulting in water pouring into our garage and water damage in our front closet.  I'm concerned for my family's health now if mold starts to develop.
                                   I wouldn't have ever thought of reaching out to an organization such as yours but my wife tested positive for cancer after I returned from Iraq which left us with significant medical bills for her treatments and recovery.
                                   God bless you all for what you do and thanks for hearing my story.
                                   Kind regards,

                                   we are the Croon family and we need help. My husband is in Army but will
                                   retire in January 2015 after 23 years of service. He is stationed in Ft.
                                   Carson Colorado and we are living in Castle Rock. We have two small children
                                   (2/4 years) and two teenagers oversees to support with only one income. Each
                                   month after the first week is over we are out of money and withdraw out of
                                   the IRA funds which drastically shrink and we have no idea how much long we
                                   can do this until this will be gone as well. We tried to refinance our home
                                   but the rates are higher than they were and we cannot take another loan.
                                   Please help us. Thank you Anja Croon

                                   My name is Chris Horman and I am a wounded OIF/OEF Iraq veteranand served in the
                                   Marine Corp. with a VA rating of 80%. I live with my wife and three boys (Austin
                                   17, Zachary 13, and Xander 10). I am asking for assistance with my electricity
                                   payment that is past due at $676.00 due to being put on short term/ Long term
                                   disability from my work with my doctors stating I will not be returning. We are
                                   tightening up a bit with the loss of pay and have put in new claims with the VA
                                   for an increase of my PTSD and TBI. So while we wait we are trying to get by
                                   right now. This would really help us if we could receive some help in this
                                   matter. I would be more than happy to send any documentation of my electricity
                                   bill or proof of service connection. Thanks.

                                   Hello my name is Nicole Wilson. I'm contacting you as a effort to save my
                                   home. I'm currently in the Ohio National Guard and I'm a active duty Navy
                                   veteran. I bought my house last year before heading off to army boot camp
                                   and found upon return that my place of employment didn't know how to handle
                                   my military leave. I returned to work being placed on all three shifts and
                                   put in two different buildings all of this in less than two months. But after
                                   being told I would have to leave on more military leave and the poor way my
                                   job handled my first leave I had to quit. It was way too stressful to stay
                                   not knowing would where or what shift I would have to work upon coming back.
                                   Long story short I took a lower paying job to have less problems with military
                                   duty but in doing this I hurt myself. The last bit of military duty was back
                                   to back months right after the job switch. I never really had time to adjust
                                   thing for the pay drop. I asking for some help because of all this I got a
                                   little behind on my mortgage and I really don't want to lose my home.

                                   Hi,My husband is a marine  and we are stationed in Newburgh ny. We just
                                   married in January and I left my home in Atlanta Ga to live in ny. I have not
                                   found work yet so we have been constantly trying to find ways to save money,
                                   so that we are not living check to check.We decided that moving out of base
                                   housing and into an apartment  will save us some money so that we are not
                                   struggling. The problem we encountered with that is the cost to move in. We
                                   found one of the lowest priced apartments in my area but to move in we have
                                   to pay the rent x's 3. That comes out to about $3000. My options are slim
                                   because we have to be out of our current place in three weeks. Thank you for
                                   your time and help. Thanks,Jordan Pridgen

                                   Hello. I am in located in Corvallis, OR and in the National Guard. I just
                                   currently got a job as a Federal Technician In Salem, OR and I won't be
                                   receiving a paycheck until the 4th. I just ran into an unforeseen financial
                                   crisis with my car and thus hindering me to get to work. I am VERY willing to
                                   pay it forward to another soldier in need once I get the funds to do so. I am
                                   just in a HUGE crunch and I would REALLY appreciate it. It's for the amount
                                   of $300. Thanks so much!!!

                                   Hi my husband is currently deployed we are in San Diego California in the navy
                                   and we recently had our first child. He has barely been in 2 years and has yet
                                   to advance. We are struggling and any help would not be taken in vain. Thank you
                                   so much Mrs Montoya

                                   My husband and I are both recently discharge from the military. He was active
                                   duty and I was in the reserves. Right now my husband is the sole provider for
                                   our family of 4. we have 2 young child, a 5 year old girl and a 2 year old boy.
                                   Right now we are behind on our rent, storage, cell phone bill. The reason
                                   behind this is our vehicle needed repairs.  I do fear my landlord will be
                                   looking to evict us if we don't come up with the rent. Thank you in advance.

                                   Hello. I am not sure if you can assist me and my family. I am being medically
                                   retired from the Army. I live in on post housing with my wife and two kids. I
                                   also care for my mother who lives with us.  I have been living paycheck to
                                   paycheck as an E5/SGT for a couple years now. The problem I am having is I
                                   don't have the money to put a deposit on a rental home. When I finish out
                                   processing on post housing we will be homeless. This all is going to happen
                                   soon. Don't know what I can do to stop it from happening. The Gap between my
                                   VA disability and my GI bill is said to take at least two months to arrive. I
                                   am at a loss.

                                   Hello,My name is Melissa Irons. I'm a PFC in the Marine Corps. I am 21 years
                                   old, and I am adopting my two younger brothers. To do such I must have a home
                                   and a car.I am single, and can no longer be too proud to ask for help. I have
                                   $900 rent each month and I don't have a car yet. That doesn't even cover bills.
                                   I currently make 1650 a month without BAH. Once I receive BAH it will be 2300
                                   a month which will be much better however I don't get it until I get my brothers
                                   in the system in the next two months. I have no furniture. They have nowhere
                                   to sleep, nor do I. I hate asking for help but my brothers deserve a good place
                                   to stay after everything they have been through. I just want to give them a
                                   good life. They are 9 and 10 and have already been through more than most
                                   people my age. If you can't help me I understand. I only ask that you let me
                                   know so I'm not waiting for nothing. Thank you so much for taking the time to
                                   read my request. 
                                      Thank you  Kim Evey

                                   pocket costs.  We used up all of our savings and maxed out our credit cards
                                   to avoid collections.  I also have three other children (I have 5 y/o twins,

                                   I am currently 8 months pregnant and I had to have my only car repaired which
                                   came out to $4700. Unfortunately during the process of paying for my car repair
                                   I fell behind on some of my bills like my SDGE bill and my car payment. SDGE is
                                   threatening to shut off my electricity and Navy Federal is threatening to
                                   reposess my car and it is my only car. I owe 245.91 to SDGE and my car payment
                                   has fallen behind to $537. I just spent $4700 to finally get it back up and
                                   running. Please let me know if there is any way your program can help. Thank

                                   I am a newly medically separated wounded combat Vet, out of the US Army. I
                                   have not been able to find civilian employment. Many applications and
                                   interviews later still no luck. I have a small VA pension award coming in
                                   but does not cover all my living expenses for my family of 6. Since I have
                                   not found a job yet, I was hoping to see if there was an angle out there that
                                   could help us with Gas assistance to help me continue to go out for interviews
                                   and apply for jobs. With the gas prices these days, we can't afford to
                                   continue to put gas in our 96 Dodge Ram to go to interviews and apply for
                                   jobs. Thank you for reading this and God Bless!

                                   support we can get. I will be getting neck and back surgery middle of August
                                   and this is a scary, but much needed surgey. Even more scary and needed is
                                   our sons third open heart surgery, which will be end of September. Our son
                                   was born with half a heart. he is doing very well at this time and is our
                                   little miracle. At the same time he has to get another heart surgery in order

                                   Hi my name is Dorothea Parmenter, my husband is Charles Parmenter. He is in
                                   the Army. We are at Fort Campbell. We are struggling right now to keep afloat.
                                   We have been here for 4 months. While my husband was in Korea I was in
                                   California so he drove me and our 6 children out here. We had to use our
                                   income tax and borrow money to get out here. So when we got our travel pay we
                                   paid back everyone and stocked our home. Apparently the overpaid us for our
                                   travel and say we owe $4700. Now we fear they will take my husbands pay check.
                                   Any help will be appreciated especially right now. I know by the Grace of GOD
                                   will make it through and be ok. Thank you and GOD Bless You.

                                   Our large family of 8 recently PCSd to a new base, Whiteman AFB in Knob Noster 
                                   Missouri. During our PCS from the United Kingdom we had many unexpected hiccups. 
                                   My father passed away, our cats needed emergency vet services to come with us 
                                   along with some other issues. Since getting here we have had to pay out of 
                                   pocket for a deposit on a home and the rent ($3,000.00). It is going to take 
                                   the military a while before we are reimbursed that amount. Our family is in 
                                   need of assistance with groceries as well as school supplies for our five kids 
                                   ranging in age from 5 to 15. If you can please help we would be forever grateful 
                                   and process to pay it forward when we have the opportunity. My husband is a TSGT 
                                   in the USAF. God Bless  Thank you, Trisha

                                   Hello my name is Patrick Lowrance. I served proudly in both Iraq and
                                   Afghanistan with the Us Army. I have been diagnosed with PTSD, TBI, Carpal
                                   tunnel, spinal stenosis and arthritis  of the spine and neck. These such
                                   conditions go back to when I first went to Iraq in 2006. I filed a VA claim
                                   well over a year ago and keep being told that  am still in the development
                                   stages of my claim. My doctor took me off work almost 6 months ago because
                                   the pain was something I always tried to live with but now the pains effect
                                   every part of my body and my PTSD is close to uncontrollable. I have taken
                                   close t0 every pain medicine and close to every medicine one can be given
                                   for nightmares, help with sleep and PTSD. I have no income coming in and I
                                   have five children and a wife to try and help provide for. I do not know what
                                   else I can do but ask for help. I have asked many places for help and no one
                                   seems to have the funds and I am running out of time. My bills are piling up
                                   and it seems like this claim is never going to end. Thanks Patrick

                                   My family and I have had a rough winter and now into spring summer as I had a
                                   lay off from Nov to April (which is never that long). My wife has not been
                                   able to work since her back surgery and our financial situation was horrible.
                                   Before i was able to return to work my vehicle(which was paid off) died and
                                   we had to get another car. I could not afford to pay outright and ended up
                                   with a monthly payment and higher insurance payments because of the loan. We
                                   have been struggling to pay rent, the car, and groceries. As I returned to
                                   work we have continued to try getting back on track. I also had A.T. for 3
                                   weeks and because the the pay dates and amounts are different we have not
                                   been able to keep up. If there is any possible financial help short term for
                                   either rent or car,car insurance I would be greatful. Thank you for your time

                                   am a Marine in need of assistance with our rent of 1700.00. We just 
                                   moved off base and the allowance for pay will not start until the 15 of 
                                   July. My rent is due the 1st of the month and I have a wife, whom is a 
                                   stay at home mother with two kids. I am the primary source of income. 
                                   We are a Christian Family and really need some help. I am aware that 
                                   others need assistance more than my family. My cell phone may shut off 
                                   in a few days because we are really behind.

                                   My husband is active duty. He recently took an unexpected pay cut so we moved
                                   from our house in to a little apartment to make up for the pay difference.
                                   With the cost of the move, we have now found ourselves behind on our bills.
                                   Our electricity was turned off. I was able to get it temporarily turned back
                                   on because two of our daughters have medical conditions. I have contacted
                                   every local agency and everyone is out of funds. We are over due by $600.
                                   The shut off amount is $312 and the remaining $300 I was able to set up a
                                   payment arrangement to pay on the 15th when we get paid again (since the
                                   paycheck on the 1st goes to rent). We honestly have about $100 in our account and very very little found in the house (what we got from Wic). I do not know what to do, or where to turn. I am really helping you could help us or turn me in the right direction.
                                   Thank you so much

                                   We need assistance in paying our electric bill. We have 6 children
                                   and through a mistake on our part, thought the electric bill was being taken
                                   out of our account. We just got a shut off notice if we don't pay a total of
                                   864 Euro ($1200) by June 30. We can cover some but not all. He will be
                                   medically discharged within 6 months and if we take out a loan, we won't
                                   have enough to live on until his disability check comes. We both work full
                                   time and live within our means.

                                   Hi,my name is Andrea Sharp. My husband Jason, a National Guard Soldier of 8
                                   years was diagnosed with Advanced Stage 3 Hodgkin's Lymphoma last year and
                                   has undergone a series of failed treatments. However, he recently underwent
                                   a Full Hematapoietic Stem Cell Transplant and was released today with
                                   restrictions stating he cannot work for a 100 days following the transplant.
                                   This has already caused great financial strain on our family of three and we
                                   will surely fall behind critically without some miracle. Thank you for
                                   anything you can do!

                                   Good evening, I am messaging because my family and I are in need of serious
                                   help. We currently have no home limited on funds and will have no place to
                                   lay our hearts soon. We have 4 kids(4, 7,7,9) and my wife and I have ran out
                                   of ideas on trying to get a home for our children. We fell behind on a lot of
                                   our bills and now we are struggling to stay going each day. We need help with
                                   deposit and rent, electric, and money so we can continue to go to work. I'm
                                   sorry if it seems like we are asking for much, this is a dark time for my
                                   family and I and we just want to be back on the right track, my wife and I
                                   are stressed and we are trying to hold it together. I am in the military and
                                   have tried navy relief but no help was giving to us, we are running out of
                                   ideas. Thank you for at least considering.

                                   My name is SFC Sean Bell. I am trying to find financial assistance for me and
                                   my family. I am currently serving on Active Duty at Fort Bragg, NC. I
                                   currently have about $13,000 worth of unsecured debt that I am trying to get
                                   from under. I struggle every month to make ends meet. Between credit cards
                                   and personal loans that I have had to take out trying to survive when I was
                                   a younger Soldier. I am currently paying almost $600 a month in loans and
                                   another $250-$300 in credit card bills each month. If I were able to get out
                                   of these loans and close these credit cards my financial situation would
                                   greatly improve. I have a son who graduates from high school next year and
                                   we are struggling to figure out how we will be able to finance this with our
                                   current situation. I am willing to make a smaller payment to a sponsor every
                                   month for some up front assistance. Anything you can do to help us would be
                                   greatly appreciated.

                                   I have fallen on hard times. I have had great difficulty supporting my family
                                   (my wife and two step-children). We have had a lot of issues ranging from
                                   custody disputes to poor credit/ expensive loans. I have done my best to keep
                                   us afloat, I have utilized all the resources I am blessed to have. However, I
                                   still cannot seem to make any sort of positive gain.On top of this I have had
                                   to take in my Mother and Brother due to a family emergency. My funds are now
                                   depleted. I do not have enough money to pay my rent or any of my bills, let
                                   alone gas or groceries.  I am ashamed that I now have to reach out to someone
                                   else for help, but I have no other option. Thank you for your support and

                                   not know what else to do. My family is in a terrible financial situation.
                                   Our only vehicle is about to get repossessed, we are at risk of getting
                                   evicted from the home that we are renting, and we have very little food in
                                   the home. My husband's part time job with the Clark County School District
                                   is ending this week. I have had medical health issues for several months and
                                   have not been able to work. My husband desperately needs to have another back
                                   surgery. He had already had one back surgery and a neck surgery. He is also
                                   diagnosed with diabetes and high blood pressure. He really needs to have this
                                   back surgery soon. He has been putting it off because we need the money to
                                   pay our bills. We have tried getting loans but our credit history is not good
                                   and we have been denied. We have tried charities but they say that they do
                                   not have the funds to assist. Please help us to save our only vehicle from
                                   repossession and help us from being evicted from our home. Thank you for your

                                   pay and have been missing almost 1,000.00 per pay since March due to error made
                                   by S1. We have been trying to fix this issue and our command is aware and trying
                                   to help. We have tried everything and are had to provide us assistance in march
                                   so they say they can't be of assistance again with same issue. My wife went
                                   through 3 surgeries in February which has left her disabled we have 7 children.
                                   We have not been able to pay our bills and our family is hurting. We couldn't
                                   even pay our rent of 1200.00. We can provide proof of pay issue and letter from
                                   command. Please help my family.

                                   My son Elia was born feb 28 2014 with a massive brain aneurism VOGM Vein of
                                   Galen Malformation.  We live on Camp Pendleton where my husband is serving as
                                   a LCpl in the marines.  We were blindsided by this devastating illness and
                                   everyday is a struggle.  Elia has began the journey of the brain surgeries
                                   called embolisms to hopefully correct this illness.  He will have his third
                                   brain procedure in August 2014.  My husband was suppose to deploy may 14th
                                   but was held back due to my sons second procedure on the 12 of may.
                                   But they are planning for him to meet up with his unit in june at some time
                                   for a 6 month deployment.  I will be caring for our baby and our other two
                                   kids alone. The cost of gas alone going from Oceanside ca to palo alto ca is
                                   around 200.  Im seeking for help with gas food and lodging for our upcoming
                                   trip.  He has an appointment july 15.  Any help you can offer would be
                                   appreciated. I have attached a picture of my husband and our son

                                   has been to the VA for mental health in which he wants to do an inpatient
                                   program. The only thing stopping him from doing it, is our financial
                                   situation. We can't pay our electric bill, water bill, phone bill, our
                                   vehicle loans, pretty much everything. We pick and choose what we can pay. We
                                   need help so that he CAN go to the inpatient program.

                                   We are a military family with a home at 322 Christmas Tree Lane, Port Angeles,
                                   WA 98363 , that needs a new well immediately.  This is the home we spent the
                                   majority of our life together raising our children in, and is our home of
                                   record that we hope to return to after my husband completes his time in the
                                   service and retires.  We are 3 years away from retirement. My husband is a
                                   Sargent First Class, and we have 6 children, 2 still at home.  We cannot
                                   qualify for a loan right now because after my mother died in November of 2013
                                   I messed up our bills, we had to take out a loan to go home for her services
                                   and we have been unable to catch up.  We are still paying on that loan and
                                   can't afford another loan.  We are facing losing our home because we can't
                                   rent it out with water.  If you can help we would appreciate it. We are
                                   stationed in Springfield Illinois.

                                   I am in the Army. My wife and I are located at Schofield Barracks, HI.
                                   We have recently run into financial trouble. My car has broken down and we
                                   can not afford to fix it. The money we have saved up we use to bring my wifes
                                   3 year old son for his visitation from Washington. Because of custody issues
                                   she only gets to see him twice a year. We can not save enough to fix my car.

                                   have been living paycheck to paycheck and at times have been forced to allow
                                   how account to go on a negative causing a domino effect increasing our burden
                                   and making it harder for us to get caught up. We are 2 months behind on both
                                   our cars and have been told that if we don't make 2 payments this month they
                                   will be up for repossession. We humbly ask for help in getting caught up with
                                   our car payments, clothing for the children, food and baby needs for our
                                   expected new addition to the family. Please if there is anyone that can help

                                   family.  His sister was due to come out here but has had financial difficulty
                                   and car repair needs that have delayed her family for coming out here for spring

                                   My husband has been in the PA Army National Guard for the past 23 years ago
                                   we allowed my daughter her husband and their 4 children to move in with us.
                                   They were supposed to move out last year but my daughter was involved in a
                                   hit and run car accident. Thankfully she is ok but I was off work for 4 weeks
                                   to help her when she came home from the hospital and then the transmission
                                   went in my husband's truck which took all of our savings. We have fallen
                                   behind in all of our bills and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank
                                   You for your time.

                                   I have been separated from my family. I just recently had a son, and my
                                   last finance office over estimated my travel pay and now I've inquired a
                                   large debt taken directly out of my pay each month. My family and I have
                                   fallen really behind on rent, auto payments, and most importantly funding
                                   for food and other necessities. I am looking for assistance to catch up on
                                   my rent and auto payments to get back on track. Living two lives separated
                                   from each other costs drastically. Thank you very much

                                   due to trying to remain current on a home mortgage at a previous duty station
                                   that the economy took a dump on and we have had a terrible time renting out. We
                                   can't foreclose on it because of the risk of security status. Our current rent
                                   plus car payment and mortgage is overwhelming when you factor in children, rapid
                                   deployments, and my wife being chronically ill and unable to work. I'm desperate.
                                   Please help.

                                   my son. We have also had unexpected travel due to illness in the family and a

                                   half the cost claimed. Any assistance to pull our heads above water would be

                                   dental field. I make all the way to working interviews and then nothing. I don't
                                   hear back. My father just had a stroke, he lives in Maryland. My mom can't take
                                   care of him by herself. She doesn't have anymore leave from her job. She needs
                                   help. I can't afford for my son and I to fly back home to help take care of my
                                   dad. So if anybody can help with one way tickets for my son and I. I would
                                   greatly appreciate that.

                                   children live in Hemet, CA and have came into a financial situation where
                                   it seems that there no other way to go and am hoping that there may be 
                                   someone that is willing to take our burden off our shoulders. As hard as it 
                                   is to bear that we have gotten ourselves in this situation we cannot bear 
                                   this burden. Our bills range from rent, to utilities, and auto repairs that have 
                                   we are to the point of falling behind on or being shut off. I know it is expected
                                   that only one bill be paid but if anyone is willing to help I am more than grateful 
                                   for any assistance that one may be willing to offer. Thank you for your time and
                                   patience concerning our needs. God bless.

                                   I am SH2 Highsmith, active duty, single mother of three. I am in need of financial
                                   assistance. I currently live in base housing in Portsmouth, but I work in Norfolk.
                                   I am trying to move to Norfolk and have found a reasonably priced apartment for my
                                   family and I but I am having trouble coming up with the first months rent with my
                                   bah still going to base housing. I really need to move because I am already living
                                   check to check and now on top of taking my entire bah, they have implemented a
                                   utility bill for military housing plus there are tolls due to start on the tunnels
                                   between Portsmouth and Norfolk starting next month.Please help if you can.

                                   We are really in need of help with providing groceries from my home. My wife
                                   is finishing up school and my MIL became ill and is staying with us. This has
                                   added a financial burden on us to the point I can not get food in the house if
                                   all the bills get paid. I am ok with not paying some bills to get food in the
                                   house and that is what I have been doing. However with it just being Christmas
                                   I can not neglect the bills for the next few months. I am beyond appreciative
                                   of anything that will help. I am not as much worried about my wife and I but
                                   more about my daughter and MIL. I am currently in search of a second job at
                                   nights and my wife is also in search of work so that we can get out of this
                                   mess. From the bottom of my heart thank you for your time!God Bless

                                   A heartfelt THANK YOU!
