Sponsor Assist #129 December 23, 2006 Ft, Hood, Tx Hi there, My name is Tina, I am the proud wife of a US Soldier, and we are stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. We were hoping for a good Christmas for our little girls this year, but we have gotten caught up in so many bills.. I had to quit my job to help my husband when he broke his femur playing a unit softball game. So, money has been tight. As soon as he heals, he will be off for another tour in Iraq. We would really appreciate an help with Christmas we can get. I know this is last minute, but we just found out about this site today! This is such a wonderful thing, and hopefully one day we can be a donating family!! Thank you for having such a wonderful thing here!! Tina Knowlton Sponsor Assist #128 December 21, 2006 Reedsburg, Wisconsin I am an army wife whose husband is stationed in Korea. We are in Wisconsin and are trying to run two households on my husband's pay. I cannot work right now due to medical problems and am having a hard time paying the electric and the phone bill. I am now 3 months behind on the electric (which has been kept lower due to warmer temps than usual) and one month on the phone bill soon to be two. We support a 4 year old and an 18 year old that is still in school. Thank you. chris Sponsor Assist #127 December 21 2006 East Dublin, Ga Thank you Matt Roseberry for the Elec. Bill Thank you Melinda Green Thank you Benjamin Young & Friend #126 December 20, 2006 Camp Pendleton, Ca Hi, my name is Stacy. We are a Marine family stationed at Camp Pendleton, CA. We have 2 children, a son age, 5 and a daughter age 3 1/2. I'm sure I'm way too late for this, but I just happened upon this site and would like to see if there was a possibility that someone could help provide my little angels with a nice Christmas. My husband and I are struggling right now to keep things afloat. I have type 1 diabetes and have had lots of health issues the past couple years. I was working, but had to quit do to liver problems. I am now getting my health under control, but just purchased a CGMS (which insurance does not currently cover) for my health that cost us a pretty penny. Anyway, due to this cost and the continuous costs of it, my children will not be having much of a Christmas. We are clear across the US from any family (as usual with military life) and I just want them to have a wonderful day! As I said before, I'm sure I'm too late for this, but it's worth a shot, right? I would never ask for help were it not needed, as I know there are many that have it worse than us, but if you can find any help, I know two small children that would be extreemly happy and greatful (along with their mommy). Thank you for your time! Hopefully one day we will be in the position to be a sponsor for another family in need.

Riley, Kansas My husband is active duty Army, stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas. We have 3 children, ages 8,4 and 2. I am unable to work because i have kidney problems and our 2 year old has severe asthma and hypoglycemia. Which makes money very tight for us. At this point we are about to lose our van. My husband has an older car that he drives to work, but it does not have appropriate seatbelts to be safe for the kids and also has a broken window. We bought a van thinking we could afford the payments but my daughters health has gotten worse and things are tighter now, our payment is $361 a month and we are 2 months behind right now. I am afraid to lose the van because then I will have no form of transportation for me and the kids. My husband is due to deploy in the spring, which will bring in some extra money, but I dont know how we will make it till then. All three of our children are in need of christmas stuff and clothes. Please, if anyone is able to help us out. Heidi K Sponsor Assist #123 December 17, 2006 Lakewood, Wa (Ft.

We are hoping to find someone who might be able to help us. We are a Marine Family stationed at Camp Pendleton. We have been struggling to pay our bills every month and have gotten behind because we had to pay extra money to get our car fixed. My husband is a Corporal and is Military Police. He has long hours that are unpredictable and hasn't been able to get a second job to help ends meet. We have an 8 month old who had a cleft lip, but still struggles to eat out of a bottle, so I have to be available at all times to nurse him. Because of this, I have not been able to find a job either. We only have the one car and we don't have enough money to make the car payment this month. We also don't have anything to really give our baby a nice first Christmas. This is the first Christmas and wedding anniversary that my husband has been home for in 3 years since he enlisted and now we don't have any money to make this holiday extra special or to even celebrate our marriage. If you can find it in your heart to help us, we would be truly grateful. We just need one kind person to help us get back on our feet. Thank you so much and Merry Christmas!

Sponsor Assist #119 December 12, 2006 Camp Pendleton,CA Hi, my name is Lanie and my husband is a corpsman with a Marine Unit in Camp Pendleton. We were hoping to have a special Christmas this year because it will be the first in three years that my husband will be here for it. We have three kids, 9, 6 and 3. My husband was in Iraq the last two years for all of their birthdays and holiday season. Due to some very unfortunate circumstances, I got very ill and have been out of work for almost three months. All our money goes to the bills we can afford to pay. My kids have been great about it all and have said that the best present is having daddy home. They don't even mind that for the first time in their lives, we won't be seeing Disneyland during the holiday season. It breaks my heart because there are other families out there probably more deserving, but I am asking for my kids and my husband. They have endured so much in the past three years. My son (the 9 year old) has a serious heart defect and has had a rough year with being sick. Please help me make Christmas a little more happythis year! So for those of you who have helped other families, God bless you and your kindness. You should know that every little bit of generosity is GREATLY appreciated by us military families. Especially for us spouses who watch both our spouse and children suffer through long deployments to very scary places. God bless!

Our soldier is currently in Iraq, he has been there about 8 months. We have spent much of the last three years apart, he has been deployed for 2 years and went to school between deployments. We are struggling to make ends meet and Christmas gifts are not really in the budget. Not to mention that we are beginning to feel the pain of our husband/Father being away for so much of our lives and finding it hard to get into the christmas spirit. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Our Childrens ages are boys 15yrs, 5yrs, and 2 yrs, Girls 13, 12, 10, 9, and 6.Thank you so much for taking your time to help military families.. God Bless, Christine Gillum Sponsor Assist Thank you Lynne Onufer Katrina's Angels.org Thank you Melinda Green #116 December 9, 2006 Wentzville, MO I'm actually writing this for a very good friend of mine. His name is Fred Boeving and he is from Wentzville, MO. He is a disabled vet, 80-84 Navy. I'm not familiar with all those military acronyms so I apologize if I'm leaving something out. Of course he has all sorts of documents to prove whats been going, on in his life... his Military service, Social Security Disability, a huge stack of overdue bills and a small stack of receipts from a grocery store, a Wal-Mart, pretty much nothing in that stack.On top of all this he is raising his 13 year old son Josh without any emotional or financial help from his ex wife. His son is ADHD, or ADD...again more acronyms I don't know a whole lot about. What I do know he is a good guy who has been struggling for quite some time. I would love to see a ray of brightness for him and his son this Holiday season.He's a proud man and was very reluctant to let me do this for him. But, he doesn't fool with computers much so I'd like to see him try to stop me...LOL He desperately needs help with utilities (gas and electric), which are getting close to being disconnected. A gift card to our local Wal-Mart and/or Save a Lot would help him get some much needed food as well as necessities around the house. I hope I'm not pushing it, but if there is still time and space for another deserving family, I know he , and especially his son, would just be tickled to have a decent Christmas this year. Thanks so much for listening and hopefully I can find him some assistance.

My name is Sandra. I am a veteran, and now an Navy spouse of eight years. My husband is currently deployed and we have two daughters ages 13 and 5. We will be without Daddy this Holiday season and also for many upcoming holidays. I am requesting assistance to help make my daughters Holiday special in hopes it can take their minds off of Daddy being away and what he is doing if only for a day. Due to an unforeseen expense due February 9th, I am having to save $1800 and was only given 3 months to do it so it leaves little money left to provide a Christmas for my children. Although, they are not asking for much, I would love to make their Christmas special. If you can find it in your heart to sponsor us this holiday season, I would be ever so grateful. God Bless You and Happy Holidays. Sandra Sponsor Assist Thank you Stuart Henning & girls #112 December 7, 2006 Mountain Top, Pa Hello my husband is a returning Iraqi freedom now vet.

I enlisted in the army reserves in hopes of being able to put a down payment on my wife's gallbladder surgery with the 15,000 enlistment bonus. However, after going to Texas to enlist, while inprocessing in my unit I found out that I would not receive my bonus until after AIT, which is scheduled July 2007. And then came another hard blow, I lost my full time job while I was enlisting in the reserves..because I did not have orders.My wife's liver enzymes are now elevated to the extent of liver failure, and the Dr's decreased her dilantin in half (medication for a seizure disorder)in order for her liver to function.However, she is now having multiple seizures per day. My family and I do not have health insurance, we are close to be evicted from our home, loss of utilities, and our 11 year old son and 12 year old daughter will not have any Christmas presents this year. Please keep my wife and children in your prayers.God Bless!

He is currently a full time student at Devry University. Right now we are in dire need of help. We are good people trying to keep it together and it's not happening. We have a total of 5 kids. Our only vehicle broke completely down and I lost my job because now I have no transportation. We can't even get back to the vehicle where it broke down at to get. We live in the country where there is no public transportation. We cannot pay rent this month or the water bill. Christmas is less than 4 weeks away and we can't even get our tree out of storage because we were not able to pay that bill let alone buy presents for all the children. We have tried to get help from everywhere and no one can help. This is our last resort. I would like to think that Robert serving for his country that we could get some kind of help.None of that matters. Everyone treats him like bum when all he needs is getting help with a fresh start.If we could get a vehicle that is big enough for our family and reliable then we could get jobs to get back on track. Can this program help us? We need a hero to help in a Christmas miracle.

Tina Sponsor Assist #102 November 21, 2006 Ft. Stewart, Ga I am a military wife. My husband is getting ready to deploy in Jan. We have two young children and I'm pregnant with our third, due in Feb. We are struggling to make ends meet. He joined the army when I became ill with a chronic disorder that has left me unable to work and sent us into debt. I am worried that I won't be able to give my children a christmas at all, this is our first christmas not living with the folks so we have no decorations and I know we aren't going to be able to get a tree let alone presents, and since my husband will be leaving right after Christmas I had very much wanted this to be a very nice christmas for everyone. I know it's not about presents, but any parent knows what it is like to want so bad to give your kids what they need and want for that matter and not be able to do it. I'm worried this may be our last christmas with my husband, I am trying to think positive, and I really believe God will bring him back to me, but Just the same I'd like to treat this as if it were the last just incase. My car payment is passed due almost two months, and my husband's CO refuses to sign an AER loan. To top it all off my 17 yr old brother killed himself last month and I had to fly back home to be there for my family and the funeral which stripped us of any available funds we may have had. This is for sure the most stressful time of year. I have a 4 yr old daughter and a 2 yr old son. All of my family is in California, so far away it makes it even more difficult.

Our son has recently been diagnosed as autistic. Due to the diagnosis, I am currently not working to care for our son. Aidan was born 11 1/2 weeks premature and he has accrued medical bills totaling around $65,000. Although we were fully insured through Blue Cross, they have continued over the past two years to deny to pay our claim. I am still working on this but in the meantime we have purchased a modest home. We had a significant amount of money put aside, but now that I am not working, I have used a large portion of this money to pay our living expenses. In the past two months, I have suffered many obstacles within my immediate family. My father has become increasingly ill, my nephew has been diagnosed with a rare but terminal illness, and my brother has suffered a terrible drug addiction which has resulted in him stealing things from us. With the leftover amount from savings invested in our new home, I am unable to provide neccessites for our home including things such as small appliances, groceries, etc. I also fear that my children may have little or nothing for christmas this year.

Thanks- Jessica Sponsor Assist Thanks John Uythoven for your help to Jessica and her family. And to: First and foremost I would like to thank you and your family for the sacrifices you make to assure the safety of so many. A month ago we celebrated my son's 7th birthday with an Army party that he had requested. Two members of the local Army recruiting office led by Sergeant Earl L. Blizzard volunteered there time to come over and spend some time with the kid's. This proved to be the best birthday party possible for my son and his friends. When I offered them money for there time, they responded by saying no thank you. They did mention that I could contribute in other ways, but were not very specific. I think your email has answered my question on how I could make a difference and say thank you to Sergeant Blizzard. If there is anything my family can do to make your Christmas brighter for your three children, please let us know. It would make me very happy to know that my family could make a difference for yours. My email address is listed below and I look forward to hearing from you.

I am here with my kids ages 12, 7, and 3, and I am struggling everyday. Daycare for me is $398 per month, I have a car payment $556 per month, and my insurance is about to be canceled. I have been playing catch up for 3 months since I came from Germany, and I didn't think that the pay here would be that different. I am not getting the government assistance that I was getting in Germany because the cost of living here is high. I don't qualify for much when it comes to assistance. I am depressed and stressed out daily and I don't know what to do. I need help financially, and in any other way to keep my head above water. I don't even think that I will be able to get my kids a Christmas this year either because of my struggles. Please someone out there I just need to have a second chance to be able to sleep without worrying for a minute. Due to my hardship in the Army, am going to have to request for a hardship chapter to be able to take care of my kids. I will be hurting for a couple of months until my VA benefits start.

Their father committed suicide and the children are the ones who found him and they have been through alot in the past two years. Everything was going good until the VA starting messing up on my checks and they were making the checks out to the deceased veteran instead of me and i have been returning the checks and getting replacement ones that is until August when i recieved a letter addressed to the next of kin for me. The letter said they had suspended my benefits because they now think that i am deceased. I have been to the VA and they hopefully will get it straightened out soon in the mean time because of them withholding my checks i can not pay my rent. If someone could find it in their hearts to help me and my children i would be forever greatful. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story..

Shortly thereafter, we found that the house needed water pipes fixed and had electrical problems (that the inspector apparently "overlooked"). For the safety of my family, I addressed these problems immediately, knowing that it would put us behind on bills (what choice did I have). Now we are behind on our car payment and utilities. I cancelled the cable and cut out all leisure activities, but we are still behind, months later. My wife just started maternity leave and that will make it all the harder.

We were told it will be August 15 before his pay is deposited. Due to his leaving the electric company is going to turn off the power on the 1st of august and there is no way I can pay it before august 3rd which is the day we move and have the electric transferred. I am at a complete loss as of what to do. The balance is $150.00 I am requesting any type of help for either food or the electric bill.

Now, we have a home, but it seems that we cant make the bills. We dont have anyone to watch our children, so only my husband can work. After he left the Marines, it took him 3 months to find a job so we got behind on our bills and now we cant catch them up. We just received a disconnect notice on our electric bill and the total is nearly $800!!! A disconnect on our telephone for $200!!! Also, our auto insurance has lapsed, so now we dont have any home or auto insurance either. It seems like we will never get out of this dark hole that we are in! We manage to pay our rent and to buy groceries and gas for the car, but thats it, there is never anything left after that! If nothing else, I would be ever so grateful if someone would jsut think of our 3 children. Because we are always so strapped on money, we arent able to go out and do things with our kids, or buy them things like other families can.

We just found out that I have a brain tumor, which was a total shock to us. We had just two weeks earlier moved downtown, in anticipation of my husband getting out of the military as soon as he deploys and returns from Iraq. We used all our savings for the move for rent deposits, etc. I go in to the emergency room at Camp Pendleton Naval Hospital for a migraine, and walk out having found out that I have a brain tumor the size of a golfball. Now we are faced with high travel expenses to the treatment center which is 60 miles one way. Tricare (the military insurance) will not reimburse if the treatment center is not more than 100 miles one way. However, with Southern California traffic, the time needed for appointments, tests, etc, this is an all day trip involving high gas cost, extra money for meals, extra child care costs, etc. I feel I have become a burden to my husband and don't know what to do to help. We have not paid utilities to make sure we had enough for the expenses to go down to the doctor.Documentation of unpaid utilities, gas expenses, doctor's diagnosis, etc can be provided. Thank you.

Thank you for interceding for me. I think they were as skeptical as I was initially, about getting help and/or giving help to someone solely off the internet.

While on active duty I got myself into some really bad credit situations which is causing me to live from pay check to pay check and make it difficult to purchase a home for my children. Moving around from post to post initially caused me to get behind in bills and once they got so far behind I could not afford to pay them and take care of my children. Can you help me with these bills. My spouse is active duty and I am a civilian now. Even with both incomes it is difficult to make it and with interest on these bills we will never be able to pay them off. Sponsor Assist #67 April 3, 2006 Ft.

My wife and I have one 2 year old son and just found out that she has one on the way. She is going through a high risk pregnancy because of her prior miscarriages, so she can't work. I am trying hard to make ends meet with one paycheck, but I keep coming up short. Recently I had a pay oversight, so for the next two months I will be only be receiving about 350.00 per paycheck to live off of. If there is anyone out there to help us with our bills and groceries, it would be MUCH appreciated. Our big bills are our car note (495.00), and our phone bill (100.00). A food voucher or gas voucher would be much appreciated also. Whatever you can help with would help us out. I know that God will see us through this hardship as he has every other time.

My wife is pregnant with our first child. Her due date is around August 30,2006. We are already buying and saving to buy the things one needs to raise a healthy child. I am scheduled to return to Italy sometime in the end of March. I was planning on spending my leave in Italy to save more money but that is not possible. My spouse and I need to go to the states to take care of some visa issuses. This is costing me a little more than $2,400 dollars. My spouse and I were planning on using this money to purchase a ticket for my mother to come witness the birth of her first grandchild, and also to help take care of household matters and aid in the recovery of my wife. I work long hours both while deployed and in Italy and it would be a blessing if we could have an extra hand around. My mother lives in California and we would like her to come to Italy for two or so weeks. All we need is a ticket, we have our own place and an extra bed. Chris Rice Sponsor Assist #64 FEBRUARY 10,2006 Waco,Texas Hello, I am a soldier in the Army. I have been in for over 14 years, 9 of those years I have been married to a very special lady. We have two wonderful daughters. Due the constant financial strain we are under due to bills tricare and Concordia wouldn't cover and because a military hospital made several mistakes during my wife's delivery of our youngest, she cannot work. I know there is worst cases out there and understand if no one contacts me. Currently I am in Kuwait, but when I return I would like to actually take my family on a real vacation before my next assignment since its a very good chance I will be gone for an undetermined amount of time. We have never been on any real vacation because we barely have the money to make the bills and then sometimes we end up borrowing money from our parents. Since I am in Kuwait and unable to work second jobs, my wife is being forced to do without alot of things they need. It hurts deep down to know that I can't provide everything my family needs and for once I would like to see a smile on everyone's face. If anyone would like to help, God Bless.... Thank you for all the support everyone shows. Sponsor Assist #63 January 2, 2006 Orlando, Florida Dear Sirs, My husband has recently been activated to train Soldiers going to Iraq and consequently we have no "man" in the house - I have three children who are truly a blessing - we are in need of a fence around our property to stop our youngest child from wondering off (or anyone coming in ) while our child plays in the back yard - which she loves to do. We live in Orlando Florida and do not know anyone locally (as my relatives are in England) who could help us put up a fence - my two oldest sons try and help but I think this job is a little bigger than they could possibly handle at 13 years old. If you know where we could get any help with anything like this or property repairs I would be most grateful....Thanks and have a Blessed New Year - The Scott Family.

We have two children, our son is 15 months old and our daughter is 6 years old.We have found ourselves in a rut because when we first got here which was a year ago in January(this is our first duty station) my husband was supposed to be promoted to SGT..well that took awhile, we had struggled before my husband went active duty and had to sell all of our things in order to get by so when we got here we had to buy everything over again, we are paying for his truck which is 3 months behind leaving us oweing $900.00 right now to get it caught up, when we first got here we bought me a little clunker of a car just to get me around in to run errands and take the kids to the doctor and so on, but the car broke down, we had to get a loan to buy me another car because my husband was having to take off work and be late alot of times from trying to do the errands I usally did such as taking the kids to doctor, me to the doctor, and taking my daughter back and forth to school, we have had to take out several loans to get by so we could put food on the table for our kids, we've appled for food stamps but got turned down because they look at the BAH which we dont even get because we live in base housing....I have been looking for a job but it's hard to find something that pays enough to pay for childcare for two kids I've been out of work for a while now because i suffer from severe sleep apnea and severe migraines...the help I'm asking for is just for my kids to have a good christmas and help with this late truck payment ....we dont have the money to get the kids anything for christmas and we've spoken to the company where we got my husband's truck and they said if we can just pay anything then it'll show that we're trying but we honestly dont have anything that we can pay because all the other bills pilling up..any help that anyone can give would be greatly appreciated... I know that there are so many people on this site that are in great need and I ask and pray that if you come across any of them that need it worse than I do you will help them...i look at all their stories and it saddens me so much...I wish I could help each and everyone of them and I would if I wasnt struggling myself..it's sad to see so many families of people that serve our country struggling so badly. it really makes you wonder if we're really being taken care of like we should be...I am very proud of my husband for what he does...he's served in Iraq once and they say he could be called up at any moment to go again.....I send all my blessings and prayers out to all the other soldiers and their families....May God Bless each and everyone of you in your times of need!!Thank you for listening!!

Sponsor Assist #59 November 22, 2005 Jacksonville, Florida Hello, I just read about the other familes in need and I feel blessed in so many ways. Althought we have our own problems. My husband has been in the Navy for 6 years. We recently moved into base housing in Jacksonville Florida, which mean we no longer get BAH. When that happened so did our financial problems. We have a 200 dollar phone bill, most of it is reconnection fees from it being shut off last month and the month before and so on. We have 2 cars one is a 2000 Jeep grand cherokee which is currently broken its been parked in the drive way we dont have the money to find out whats wrong much less to have it fixed. So we are relying on his car a 1996 toyota camry with over 100,000 miles of problems, It leaks oil no a/c and we have heat it just doesnt blow out of the vents, I'm sure the tires are bad and we probably shouldnt drive it but we have no other choice. We also have a 3 year old daughter, she has out grown almost all of her clothing. She is 3 and still sleeps in her crib we cant afford a new bed for her. Our home is partialy furnished, we have a "hand me down" couch and love seat.In our bed room we only have a mattrress on the floor, which is an up grade from the air mattress we slept on for months. Our clothes are in piles and in laundry baskets on the floor a few are hanging in the closet. We desperately need a washer and dryer. We can only affort to take our clothes to the laundrymat once a month and thats only to wash the important things like his uniforms. I hand wash most of the other clothes in the bath tub and hang them to dry. Like most of the other needy families our food is mostly mac and cheese, raman noodles, soup, canned veggies and instant mashed potatos. I am sure our daughter isnt eating like a toddler should but its what we can afford. I recently got a job, at the commissary as a bagger ( working for tips only) I can only work limited hours, we cant afford child care so I have to wait for my husband to get off work so he can watch our daughter and drop me off. I thank God for that job the 10 to 20 dollars I make in a day there has provided bacis food and diapers in our house in between paydays. We need and appreciate any and all help.

My husband has been deployed now for a little over a year and bills are starting to take their toll. My husband and I have a baby girl who just turned 5 months. I am currently unemployed and now trying to make ends meet with one income. My husband is only a PFC so for anyone that knows military pay, its not much, lol. But we are now with out t a vehicle. The car we had finally quit on us. But not only are the bills pilling up, but with me having to make all my dr visits for my medical condition my husband is "supposed" to come home in january and our daughter and I are here in michigan still. We have no way of getting moved back to Fort Stewart when he comes home let alone we wont even be able to be there the day he comes in. Of all the things that have gone wrong that is the one thing that is hurting me the most, knowing that when my husband comes home, like some, he is not going to have anyone there on that parade field to welcome him back, and he has yet to see his daughter. They would not send him home when she was born. If there is anyone out there that could help, even if, with just this, I would be so blessed. I appreciate everything that the good people of this country have done to help our loved ones and their families. Thank you to ALL! God bless!! Come home soon!!

We have two Children age 8 and a 3 year old. We have been struggling for money for awhile and now that he is deployed it is getting harder. The extra money that we are suppose to receive has not kicked in and I am coming up short. I think this month we will have $29. And I still need to pay my car payment, get food for the house, and also gas in case I need to go somewhere.

Beth Dews Sponsor Assist #53 9/11/05 East Haven, CT Hi, I am writing to see if there is anyone that can assist my family. My husband is a Navy Reservist and was deployed on Feb 14, 2005. He is currently serving in Iraq. Right now we have no idea when exactly he will be coming home, it seems that everytime I talk to him the date changes, it gets moved from an earlier time to months and months later. I have 3 children at home that I am taking care of by myself during his deployment. I have a 14 year old, a 3 year old and a 16 month old. My husband left a job as a carpenter with unlimited overtime and many side jobs to go overseas and has taken a drastic pay cut in doing so, but was proud to have this opportunity to serve his country. Now I am in a financial situation where I just don't know what to pay - I have a mountain of bills and not enough money coming in to pay it all. First is food, I have to make sure my kids eat, but then the mortgage and car payments are extremely important because we need a place to live and a car to get around in. My electric bill was over $400 this month due to the excessive heat we have had pretty much all summer long. I couldn't shut the air conditioner off because my 16 month old is in a hip brace about 20 hours a day due to hip dysplasia (she was born with this) so the heat makes her very uncomfortable as it traps in heat and makes her twice as hot. I have just started a part time job at night but can only get about 15 hours a week so I am doing that now. Not that it's going to make me rich, but it will help with something. I cannot afford to put my children in daycare, it's way too expensive here. At this point anything would be very much appreciated - gas cards, grocery store cards, diapers, a payment to any of my utility companies...I am getting desperate and have no place to turn to for help. We do not live on a military base as we are a reservist family. Thank you very much for your kindness and generosity.

Can you please find a sponsor or sponsors that will help me and my children even if we live here in north carolina????

Sponsor Assist #51 9/01/05 Ft.Hood, Texas Please help my family in this time of war!!! I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me or my family. We are doing the best that we can with what we have. We recently sold our '95 Jeep to pay medical bills. Unfortunately, it is not enough! I have 2 young boys (3 yrs. and 1 yr.). My husband joined the military in Feb of 05. As most of you know the military doesn't pay much. We need all the help we can get. We have very little furniture and we usually eat Ramen noodles or mac n' cheese to save money. My 3 yr old has Athsma and allergies, so he needs medication and regular visits to the doctor. My baby is still on formula nd that tends to be pricey. Of course I would never keep them from eating, so most of the time I skip at least one meal during the day to ensure that we save as much money as possible. My husband has gone to NTC (training) until November and will be leaving for Iraq in December. I am sure some money will be saved with one less mouth to feed. Please, if there is anyone who can help, we would be so greatful!!! God Bless!!

I am writing in desperate need for any help available. I live by my self in Arizona, Phoenix.My husband is a Marine from 1/5 currently deployed for 3rd time in Iraq. He left from Camp Pendleton on March 1st. We have been struggling ever since withour bills. I'ts very hard for me, as you may know as a foreign military spouse, due to an immigration law in the United States, we are not allowed to accept any employment opportunities while they are overseas unlles we pay the hole process in one payment. Unfortunatley, this is because they want to make sure we wont get any benefits if the American soldier, who is the sponsor, dies in combat. Also I'm going with this process in order to finally after 3 years waiting without leaving the country, received my authorizacion to start working and studing in the US, all the forms we have to send them (to USCIC) are very expensive for us ...Petition for Alien Relative ($185), Aplication to Register Permanent Resident($385), Medical Examination($190) Aplication for Employement Authorisation($164) of course they want all the forms together and their fees,I wrotte them a letter to see if they can waived some fees,but they think cause he is a Marines in combat for third time we have enough money. .LOL!. I have been sick with a seriously asthma attack I was at the hospital for a few days (Baptist Hospital) they gave me prednisone and oxygen to help me breath. They said it was a reaction from stress and anxiety; they can cause fatigue, which may affect the immune system and, in turn, increase either asthma symptoms or bring on an attack.. After those days, they send my the bill!!!!!We have Military insurance with TRIWEST, the anount billed was $2.009,that's Crazy!!!They allowed $814 paying $692.21 the rest wich is $122.16 is the beneficiary Responsibility. (me!) So there we go all I have is more and more and more bills of course we cant pay all,we just have one income and is not enough to pay the immigration process(so I can start working) plus the hospital bill,plus the rent,and utilities or food (anybody needs food!!)wich Im always late or I have shut off notice like this month with SRP and just not to mention As you can imagine, I wait all day long just to hear from him, silence is too hard and I never know when will be the next time I'm going to heard from him.In the last to month he called me during daytime from Phoenix,(due to his work conditions in Ar Ramadi,they are 11 hours ahead.)and we went over the minutes for more than 800 minutes in two month,so every minute is $40 cents plus fees and fees ,now we are trying to pay that bill wich is almost a $1000 dollars (Cingular Wireless)and they desconcted last month because I did not make the full pament.so now is even worst because I cant have any contact with him or either with my family until we save the money to pay the amount due. I Wrote them to see if we can make some payments arrangements to resolve this matter and/or allowed me to turn on my service as soon as possible, once the payments goes thru.but,I have no answers yet. I'm also a volunteer form a non-profit organization, called packages from home; we send 3 packages per soldier from any branch. They are also trying to donate me a PC, so I can at least communicate with my loved ones thru the internet Im more than upset and tired going with all this issues just me,I don't know a lot of people here even If I want to leave the US and just wait for him outside with my family.. I cant do it, or I lose my place with immigration after three years period just waiting for them!! You have my full permission to forward this letter to anyone that you think may be able to help.

My husband came home as I man I didnt know and know I am alone with no family and no help. Please will someone help me just to pay rent while I find a job that will pay my bills. He gives me no assistance and I have tried everything. We are divorcing and I have nothing. I havent eaten alot either, I dont have money for food or gas. I have went and sold everything I could to make it and now find myself hungry and almost homeless. I have never asked for help like this and even contact Navy releif but my spouse wont even help me there. I went to the church but they said as I have no children I do not qualify for help.

Sponsor Assist * 5/9/05 Kessler AFB My name is Lindsay. I saw your Email and it really touched me. I happen to be stationed at Keesler AFB, and know a few things here and there about ways to go about getting assistance when in need!! I'd start with the United Way Help Line they are a number that links families with several agencys. The Salvation Army, provided they have a thrift store can write you a clothing voucher for your son. Also Keesler Airforce Base just opened up a Airman's Attic and they help out E-5 and below with housing items, furniture and clothing items all donated. They just opened up The number to Family Services here at Keesler AFB os (228) 388-8628, they could help you with any questions. -Best of luck and hope this helps!

He just returned from Iraq in September, and he is now deployed to Okinawa for 7 months. The phone bill was outrageous the last time he was gone. We would like to keep in touch as much as possible, but calling cards get very expensive. I was wondering if anybody is willing to send us calling cards so we can stay in touch, and minimize our phone bill. It would mean so much. Anything that you could do would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Shawna Sponsor Assist Thank you Jaime Gilliam #38 5/5/05 Ft Rucker, AL Need help buying infant clothes... My husband is an E4 in the Army. We are stationed in Ft Rucker, Al. Our oldest son is three and he has special needs. We often have to travel as far as Biloxi, MS to Keesler AFB, and Children's Hospital. If we have any money on our credit cards we put it on that, but then by the time Tricare reimburses it I usually need that for the next appointment or groceries. I have about $10,000 total of credit card debt. We don't get AER for his trips because they are continual to treat his intestinal issues, asthma, and developmental issues. Because we have so many bills and expenses I am having a hard time buying things for our new baby on the way. He is due in September 2005. Because of my first son's expenses put the new baby's careast on layaway at the PX. We owe $139.00 because it is a four in one and we will never have to buy another one for the baby. We thought it was over all better to try to get that type to avoid the future cost of buying more seats. I don't have many boy clothes, a baby swing, or blankets for the baby. We are also in the process of beginning a compassionate reassignment to try to get to another post where all of our little one's medical needs can be met. I am not sure what expenses will be involved if we move. Thank you.

He flies C-17 transport planes, and has not been able to take leave enough to come home in over two years. We have three other children at home. Two years ago, our youngest child began having episodes of Status Epilepticus during her sleep. We have spent over twenty thousand dollars in the past two years out of our pocket trying to find out what was wrong and in attempting to treat her. She is presently not seizure free, and so both my husband and I feel that we should not leave her and travel to see our son without her. Last summer we did travel and had to take her, and it cost us about $3000, with plane and food there. We had to put that on credit, and we still owe for that.I have fibromyalgia and a few other health problems, and ended up having to quit my job of 13 years last year. I also had two surgeries last year. Our request is if there is any help with airline tickets for our family to be able to go see or son this next summer/spring. Any help would be appreciated.

Last January my husband (E-3) and I were stationed in the Washington DC area. We have been struggling ever since with our bills. The cost of living has almost trippled for us from where we came. We are trying to support three kids, one of which we just pay child support to. We have been everywhere looking for help. Because of the BAH on our LES the state is offering us no help. We live on post and have tried to explain that we don't get that money but no one will listen and we are left with no where to turn. Before moving out here we had bought a new truck, we are making a payment of 669.00 a month and paying about 200.00 a month in gas for my husband to get to work, which at the time we could afford,we have tried everything and everywhere to get rid of this truck, we even tried to get it repossed until they told us we would end up still making payments on at least 10,000.00. Then just last week our child support payment for my husbands other son was raised to 508.00 a month, because of the money for BAH. We don't know where to turn. The truck and child support is taking all of our money. We have charged 4000.00 in the last year on credit cards just to get food for our family. IF there is anyone out there willing to help us. We could use help with food more then anything, but if anyone is willing to make even one month of our truck payment, Auto Insurance, or gas payment we would be forever grateful.Thank you and God Bless You!!

We were recently relocated here with our three children from San Diego. (It's So COLD Here) With the holidays fast approaching I am really getting depressed. We are still trying to settle in and make a home here, and are having a hard time doind so. My Children's winter clothes in San Diego were long sleeves and sweats. Here the climate is so much more severe that they need so many more "real winter things" that I'm really getting overwhelmed. We "boycotted" Thanksgiving because we really couldn't afford the Turkey and trimmings due to the move and getting settled. I'd really hate to have to do the same for Christmas. I would love for someone/anyone to help our children for Christmas and with clothing. Daddy and I can make due with our sweats and long sleeve shirts. Also, If there is an organization that helps with Christmas dinners that would be great too. My oldest son keeps talking about the Turkey he didn't get on Thanksgiving and really is hopeful Santa will bring one. Thank you for taking the time to listen! Thanks so much!

Ricci SA in Wisconsin Sponsor Assist #26 11/17/04 COLORADO Hello! My name is Becky my husband is in the US Army and we live on a military base here in Colorado. My neighbor is a young 24 year old mother of 2 young children and is due to have her third baby in early December of 2004, her husband is an E-3 in the US army and is leaving for Iraq in January of 2005. As a young military family they have fallen on some very hard times. In a recent conversation my friend was telling me that they just got paid and only had $50 left over to get them through for the next two weeks after the bills were paid, that same day was her little girls 7th birthday and they didnt even have enough money to take her out for ice cream. Of course that is not a NEED and that is not why I am writing. As I said she is due to have her third child in early December and she has nothing for this new baby girl. She is so stressed out with everything and just seems so lost, trying to decide on weather to pay the bills that need to be paid of buy food for their children has taken a large toll on their family. The impending deployment is only making things worse for her and her husband, all he does is worry about how his family will get along with him gone. If their is anyone out their who would like to help this family they truly need the help. As a mother to three children myself I know that when your bringing a baby into this world you want to provide for them and she can't even afford to get a pack of diapers right now let alone a crib, carseat, and clothes for this new child. My husband and I do what we can to help this family, weather its taking them places they need to go, or buying a gallon of milk for them when its needed, it's not a lot but having three children of our own and living on a military paycheck ourselves its all we have right now. Any help for this young family would be greatly appreaciated. Thank you & God Bless. Thank You: Becky Angel: S.

                             Yes I was getting food stamps for my family of about $465
                             until Jan 04. when I recieved about a $30 dollar raise. For that
                             $30 dollar raise my food stamps was cut completely off. I have a
                             wife and 4 children of my own. But I have also taken custody of my
                             niece because my sister had gotten really bad on drugs and had went
                             to prison. I was doing alright with the food stamps as a corperal
                             in the army. But sense I have lost them I have been struggling
                             really hard, but have still made it until now with grace of god. I
                             have sense gotten promoted to SGT, but had went so long struggling
                             that I have gotten in a bined. My rent is paid , my utilities are
                             paid because these bills are taken strait out of my check by the
                             army. I have refinanced my car and yes I have been promoted but it
                             will take at least 1 month before I will be able to do any better.
                             So what I am saying is that I just need a little help with food for
                             my family and diapers for my baby and my niece.

                             which is $100 and on top of that I'm a full time student in
                             school who needs all the help I can't get. So in total I waste
                             a month $1,400 which is hard for me because I have to pay for

                             transportation, I know that financial aid is covering only

                             my parents while my husband is in Iraq. I am trying to make
                             payments on my daughter's medical bills, her name is Sirenity,
                             few months ago she got her finger cut off in a door and had
                             to have it reattached, which was successful.  My husband's
                             military insurance paid a portion of it but i still owe a
                             considerable amount and would appreciate any help i could
                             receive.. .  I do not have a picture of him, everything is
                             in storage. Thank you so much for this opportunity, and
                             thanks for supporting our troops.    M B

                             My name is J S, my husband is currently deployed I just
                             received our long distance phone bill and for seven calls MCI
                             charged us $690.05.  They promised us that their phone card was
                             better than any other phone card or prepaid card.  We have a
                             two year old daughter and one on the way.  There is no way we
                             can afford the bill.  We are already behind on the rest of our
                             bills.  We've tried to cut corners in every way.  I can't work
                             because I've already lost other pregnancies and I had such
                             trouble with one we do have.  We stay with family as much as
                             possible for the help, but that is costing us in transportation.
                             I'm just asking for help with the phone bill, because I do not
                             want the phone shut off and then I will never hear from my
                             husband.  Thank you.                Contact Us if wish to assist.

                             Hello, my name is J N. S and I do not think your organization
                             offers the kind of help I need, but maybe you could direct me
                             towards the place that can help me and my kids.
                           
                             We were stationed in NAS Kingsville in Texas until last July,
                             when my husband got orders to transfer to Everett Washington,
                             onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, I am sick (fibromyalgia,
                             lupus and a herniated disc on my back) for which my adopted
                             parents said " Why don't you and the kids move down here and
                             like that we can help you while your husband is away" well the
                             help didn't happened, we moved and everything went wrong, we
                             were robbed by the movers, and now wee don't have enough to
                             eat, the meds I need do not even exist in here, I am desperate;
                             we do not have any money to move to Everett ( we are in
                             Guadalajara Mexico)  we do not have a house, car, clothes for
                             that weather, furniture, I mean nothing, and every night I cry
                             and I pray to God to send us help, because I just want to go
                             home, my adopted parents don't even offer help not even for
                             food, (for me) it is been 3 days since I last ate, please if
                             you can't help us please guide us, thank you, God bless

                             My husband left three weeks ago for his 20 month deployment in the U.S.
                             Army. We just found out last week that we are expecting our second
                             child in July and that the hospital I have to go to (because of my
                             severe asthma) is not covered by TriCare insurance. The bill will be
                             nearly $1200! We are having such a hard time now that this bill could
                             ruin us. If there is anyone out there that could help us with this
                             please contact me.
    
                             Thank you!
                             xoxo
                             Nicole, Diesel and one on the way.

                             Hi my name is Christie, my husband has been deployed in 3
                             different places in the last 3 years. We have only seen
                             him 5 months total out of the last  3 years. We know have
                             started feeling the burn of all these deployments. It has
                             been so hard on us but we have somehow made it this far.
                             I found this website by mistake and thought how nice for
                             someone to care. I always pay the bills first but usually
                             have no money left for enjoyment. So I just thought I
                             would see it there is anything you can do for us. It is
                             just me and my 2 wonderful kids. ( age 6 and 2) Movie
                             tickets or maybe just a gift certificate to a restaurant
                             would be nice. Thanks so much and my god bless you all.
