                                  Economy that affected our sponsors,donors and charitable entities. Of
                                  the 674 families asking for help this year only 136 were help. We thank

                                   My name is SPEC. Michael Malloy in Fort Worth, Tx.  I have recently suffered
                                   a service related knee injury and a job loss not related however. But it may
                                   have been a strong but silent factor in my job loss. I was and now facing
                                   worsening rent bill and debt pile up, and eviction has been filed. Can anyone
                                   please help?

                                   on my vehicle in 3 days. My car insurance has been terminated. I am just looking
                                   for a small hand up. It is $155 to reinstate my insurance and $200 for tags. Any
                                   assistance would be a blessing. I will pay it forward on here as soon as I can.

                                   enjoy together and to possibly be able to give each other small gifts. Any
                                   help we can get is greatly appreciated. God Bless,The Evans Family

                                   My family is in need of some financial assistance. We currently have
                                   shut-off notices for our electric (our home is electric heated) as well as
                                   our water. We are behind on our rent and mortgage payments, as well. We
                                   have tried to right the ship as best as we can, but are now forced to ask
                                   for assistance. We are looking for any help we can get, but the total need
                                   to keep everything on and fine would be approximately $1,000. Thank you for
                                   your understanding and any help you may be able to provide.

                                   Hi, my husband is a recently promoted E5 in February of this year after an
                                   ADSW job he had been working ended. For 2mos we lived on unemployment and
                                   after child support was taken out, he cleared about $560/mo. We were barely
                                   surviving. In October, we weren't even to pay rent. Luckily, we have extremely
                                   empathic Landords, one is a veteran himself... THAT being said, I was wondering
                                   if it was too late to sign my family up to be "adopted" this Christmas. And if
                                   so, can you tell me of anyone who COULD help? We are a family of 4: my husband
                                   and myself, plus 2 boys ages 18 and 4...We are really struggling financially.

                                   I am a Combat veteran, recently medically separated from the US Army without
                                   a severance. I am still awaiting my VA benefits.  We had to move of the base
                                   we were station at, due to being separated from the military.  We just moved
                                   to Meridian Idaho.  It has been hard for me to find a job that provides enough
                                   for my family. With 5 children at home and two with special needs it is difficult
                                   for my wife to find work.  All I want is for my children to not feel the burden
                                   of my struggles and to have something to open under the tree this Christmas.
                                   But most of all to be able to afford to purchase enough food to have a healthy
                                   family Christmas Dinner together.  If there is a Christmas Angel out there that
                                   could help my family, we would be extremely extremely grateful! Thank you and
                                   God Bless.

                                   We are struggling financially in a big way. I lost my job due to having a
                                   miscarriage an being gone from work so long. Since then we have struggled to
                                   even pay rent. We have not yet received BAH/ or back pay since we've been
                                   married. It's been 5 months. Pay it's gone the same day or the next because 
                                   we are so behind on bills. My husband is always so stressed about making 
                                   ends meet. I don't know what else to do, we've exhausted all our options it seems.
                                   We aren't even having a Christmas this year because we can't afford it. My 
                                   Christmas wish is that my husband and I be at ease, even ifit's just for one day!

                                   for over 25 years.  Due to her not taking care of any funeral arrangements,

                                   I will die in the streets, if anyone cares.  Is there anything you can do for
                                   me? A one time assistance would be surely appreciated, otherwise, my whole
                                   holiday season will be ruined.  What ever happened to the holiday spirit?

                                   Greetings and blessings. We are a family of 7. We've had to forego Christmas
                                   to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. Our children contributed
                                   as well with their saved allowance. I'd like to put a smile on their faces
                                   this year. I'm asking for a Christmas miracle.

                                   I am a single mother of two teenage boys. I have recently been relocated
                                   to Fort Meade, MD. I have been in the area for only two months. In the two
                                   months that I have been here I've had to have a plumber make repairs to my
                                   bathroom. These repairs were needed because of a faulty shower. This issue has
                                   depleted my savings, which was going to be used for purchase Christmas gifts
                                   for my family. I appreciate any assistance your program can provide, thank you.

                                   Hello. I am a military spouse and I am very proud of my husband for his desire
                                   and dedication to serve the country. My husband is a corpsman stationed at
                                   Norfolk, VA. We have depleted our savings and took out some loans because he
                                   furthered his studies to be a better sailor.  We have an amazing 11-yr old
                                   daughter who worked real hard with her studies and because of that she was
                                   able to get a scholarship to participate in an extra-curricular activity. We
                                   pulled her out of the previous ones because we can't afford it anymore. This
                                   Christmas, I would love for Santa to reward them for being really awesome for
                                   working real hard. A blessed holiday to you! Thank you.

                                   Merry Christmas.  I am an E5 with three children one of which can not be with
                                   me this year due to finantial issues. This will be my first Christmas home in
                                   two years, and I am worried about the small things for christmas.I would like
                                   to give my girls (8, 6, and 4 months) a nice christmas as this is the first
                                   year I will have them alone, and a recent car accident has left me pennyless.
                                   My thoughts and prayers go out to each and every family on this site. I wish
                                   everyone a Merry Christmas. Thank you

                                   I am the wife of a military soldier. My husband has been in service for 11years.
                                   Around this time last year he came off of active duty and it was difficult for
                                   him to find a job. He was drawing unemployment but then it was cut. I worked two
                                   part-time jobs at the time, then around late April I was let go from one of the
                                   jobs and the other one ended during the summer. At the time it got very rough but
                                   we manage to get through it. Since then he has found a job but we are far behind
                                   on bills and we are trying to get caught up and don't know how we can provide a
                                   Christmas for our four little ones.  I would like assistance for our children's

                                   Relocated to Smithtown NY from Ca and ever since our move we've
                                   been struggling with money. It is very expensive living here. We've got 
                                   to pay a lot on bills and we have 3 yr old who's still in diapers and I had 
                                   a baby girl 3 months ago and buying diapers,groceries, etc for the kids 
                                   has gotten very tight. We've been living paycheck to paycheck .The
                                   children have needs we hold off on buying because of expensive living
                                   here in NY. My sons crib broke and my husband "fixed" it but I know its 
                                   dangerous . A little help at least for my 3 month old for things she needs 
                                   will greatly be appreciated. Thank you! God Bless.

                                   I am writing on behalf of my family. My wife Julie had a double lung transplant
                                   4 years ago and 2 years ago started going through organ rejection. She has lost
                                   60-65% of her lung function since then. Recently she was hospitalized for days
                                   the cause is still unknown. Then the hospital caused her IV to become infected.
                                   Due to immune suppressant a simple infection can kill her.. So we went back to
                                   the hospital and spent several more days in the hospital to treat the infection
                                   and blood clot.Continues to have care for quite some time at home. Due to health
                                   she really can not handle normal every day home duties. To her our house and family
                                   her #1 priority. We have two daughters Analiese 15 and Bella 10. Christmas this
                                   year will not be much for us because of Julie's health. I am crushed I can't do
                                   anything for Christmas for my family. Finances are tough and Julies hosp crushed
                                   all the extra money we had. Any support you can help with would help eliminate some
                                   stress and anxiety of the Christmas Season, if this is possible we would be so
                                   excited and I would be so grateful. Thank you for all you do for so many people.
                                   It's good to know that even if we don't get support there will be blessings for
                                   many through the help you provide. Merry Christmas to you and your family

                                   As of 12/5/13 I was just finally awarded custody of my three children; who
                                   were in a horrible situation. I fought for 3 years and I always lost due to
                                   me being in the Army. I just recently got out and we went into serious debt
                                   fighting so hard for my pride and joys. With this unfortunately I am unable
                                   to buy them one thing for Christmas and it is so hard knowing when they wake
                                   up on Christmas they will have nothing. Please help us make them happy.

                                   My husband is an E4 (Navy) and I'm currently an unemployed student, persistently
                                   searching for work in San Diego, CA (where my two children (7 & 8 years old) and
                                   I reside). Every year they have Christmas wishes, but we've convinced them that
                                   Santa cannot afford to fulfill them, all the time, because he gives to ALL the
                                   children of the world. We just moved from housing into an apartment, in order to
                                   utilize any of the difference from BAH, but still we struggle to afford necessary
                                   expenses. Please help us make this a merry Christmas for my family.

                                   We are struggling with bills and are living pay check to pay check. Ive been
                                   taken off work due to my pregnancy. We were relying on a bonus from my husband
                                   for christmas but we didn't get it and most organizations have already hit cut
                                   off date to register. I am asking for help for our 8 year old son,
                                   I don't want him to wake up christmas morning and see nothing under the tree.
                                   That shouldn't be the reason I have to tell him about santa. My son loves video
                                   games, pokemon, bakugan, clothes size 8 and books.

                                   I am a wounded warrior who recently retired medically from the US Army. After
                                   retiring, I relocated from NJ to FL in hopes of starting over, going to school
                                   and going into a new career field. 9 days after relocating, my mother passed
                                   away and the funeral expenses were on me because my family had no money at all
                                   to assist. I have been struggling financially since then. I am currently
                                   unemployed but I am seeking employment. I have no way to buy a tree, feed myself
                                   and my family for the Christmas holiday or give my daughter any Christmas gifts.
                                   I am a single parent and am doing my very best to get back on my feet. I would
                                   appreciate any help you can provide. I reside in Davenport, Fl. Thank you.

                                   off my E3 pay while my wife attends school. Right now we are faced with holiday
                                   dinner or a Christmas present for each of our daughters.  My family thanks you

                                   He has been in and out of the hospital, including a stay in ICU. I lost my job
                                   after staying at home care for him, and around that time, I found out I was
                                   expecting. We are so behind on bills right now because of this and Christmas is
                                   going to be a struggle. We were planning on going home for Christmas, but with the
                                   amount of our past due bills, we are not going to be able to afford to. Praying for
                                   an Angel to help us through these though times.

                                   to file bankruptcy, but my Grandmother passed away November 5th and going to
                                   her funeral took what little I had managed to save. We reside in San Antonio

                                   getting hit by an ied in Afghanistan. I hope someone can find it in their heart
                                   to help my family this year. Thank you and God bless you.

                                   We are a military family in Colorado Springs This is one of the few years I've
                                   been home to spend Christmas with my family. I have been deployed twice and
                                   injured recently so I will not be able to deploy again this deployment until
                                   I am fully healed it has been hard to keep up with all our bills and we seem
                                   to find everytime we get ahead we fall behind because something major comes

                                   were so behind in payments. We haven't received his BAH for the last three
                                   months due to errors with the VA, and we now find ourselves unable to pay our

                                   would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. -

                                   was to have them in a house by Christmas but it has been imposible to get the

                                   I'm a PFC in the Arizona national guard. Recently my fiancé left me. We had
                                   an apartment together but his name was never on the lease only mine. I only
                                   have a month and a half before my lease is up but without his income I can
                                   not pay my December rent. I have a 3 year old son and no where to go and I'm
                                   facing eviction if I can not find a way to pay this months rent. Once my
                                   lease is over I can find a cheaper place to live but for now I'm unable to
                                   pay for my bills this month on my own. I'm in a very hard place right now and
                                   I can not end up getting evicted and have no place for my son to sleep at
                                   night. I really need the help just for this months bills. Please help me any
                                   help I can get even if it's not the full amount I need.

                                   the holidays. And cannot afford much for our children. We have 3 of them.Ages: 6,
                                   2, and 1. We are unable to move from our house that takes FULL BAH because of the

                                   taken out on our children this holiday season. Thank you for your time.

                                   offering min wage. My wife had a surgery recently and is unable to work right

                                   sacrifices to provide for our family.  He will return home in 2 weeks with no
                                   job lined up. We can't pay our mortgage or bills. All my husband ever wanted
                                   was to put a roof over our heads and serve his country. Our world is deteriorating
                                   for us. As a wife and mother of 3 beautiful girls I am asking for help.

                                   assistance?  I have 3 small children and am due to deliver my 4th in the next few
                                   weeks.  I never thought that I would be in this situation, but am facing difficulties
                                   paying my utilities, much less buying a big meal or presents.  I would appreciate any

                                   job. We are a family of 7. We are currently living off of one income. One
                                   paycheck goes towards rent which has required us to depend on food banks and
                                   churches for food. If there is anything you can do to help provide Christmas
                                   for our kids we would be forever grateful. Thank you.

                                   in the Army for 14 years. I was just recently awarded sole custody of my 3
                                   daughters, Isabella 3yr, Elliana 5, and Olivia 8. Due to the difficult custody
                                   battle not just emotionally & physically but financially also; my resources
                                   are low.             
                                   Christmas by no means should be about the gifts under the tree, but merely the
                                   people around it, however given the past circumstances of the year I would like
                                   for my girls to have the nicest Christmas as possible.

                                   My husband and I have been living paycheck to paycheck for the last four r
                                   five months barely making ends meet. I've had to defer car payments phone bills
                                   a credit card payments. My credit cards are maxed out and bank accounts are in
                                   the negative we have no savings. Things become worse when my husband pcs to
                                   California and his bah dropped over 300 + dollars and we used cash advances to
                                   pay bill where we were short. Now that I have lost my job I've had to surrender
                                   my vehicle because my husband cant afford it on his paycheck alone. We have no
                                   money for groceries and my 3 year old had no birthday and will have no Christmas.
                                   We thought taking a 6000 personal loan would help but because we were behind
                                   every month that money was exhausted and were stuck with that bill . We need

                                   My husband is in the Marines stationed at Camp Lejeune, but currently deployed
                                   in Romania until spring of next year. We have always struggled financially, but
                                   because of this deployment, we are actually losing $200 a month. We aren't able
                                   to afford any gifts for our 2 children this Christmas or any birthday presents
                                   for our daughter's birthday on December 20 . My mother has even been having to
                                   send me money each pay period so that I can buy groceries. Without her we wouldn't
                                   even have food to eat.  Any help we can get whatsoever would be greatly appreciated.
                                   Our daughter is 11 (she'll be 12 on December 20) and our son is 9.

                                   Hello all, we are the Allison family. My husband was wounded two years ago
                                   overseas and we are now living solely off his disability. Due to his
                                   disability he is unable to retain employment. We have three children of our
                                   own and are also raising my husbands two sisters without any financial support.
                                   We truly need help for Christmas as we don't have the funds to provide any
                                   extras for our children. We are trying our hardest to survive the hand we've
                                   been given, but a hand up would be upmost appreciated.  Food is our main concern
                                   for our family, anything else would be a blessing.

                                   utilities. This is a financial burden as a portion of our savings was for the

                                   My husband and I are pcsing to Ft Lewis from Orlando Fl at the beginning of
                                   the year. The trip will take about 46 hours and we could use some help with
                                   gas, food, and hotel stays. Moving will make our finances a lot tighter, we
                                   are looking for some assistance to help make the move a little less stressful.
                                   Anyway someone would be willing to help would be greatly appreciated. Thank
                                   you very much.

                                   My family and I moved to VA a little over 2 months ago. I have been having a
                                   hard time looking for a job. We have two children, 5 month old girl and a 12
                                   yr old boy. It's been really hard trying to makes ends meet. We would appreciate
                                   any help, please, especially with the holidays soon approaching. It's hard
                                   being away from home, even harder with financial problems. Thank you, God bless.

                                   We are asking for Christmas Assistance this Christmas season.  We PCSed last
                                   year and after being homeless for a few months due to miss-communication with
                                   housing we haven't really gotten out of debt because of it.  My sons last year
                                   didn't have a Christmas last year because of having no money I would love for
                                   them to have at least something this year.  My boys are 13, 7, and 14 months
                                   old.  Thank you

                                   I recently joined the navy and am now stationed in san Diego attached to the
                                   the uss Carl Vinson. Me and my family of 5 can't make ends meet.  We were on
                                   the food stamps program Prior to enlisting but now we are denied. My family
                                   and I took military housing because trying to fit my family in a small 2
                                   bedroom apartment would not work.
                                   So with one vehicle that cost 225 pls insurance which is 200 and gas in San
                                   Diego is ridiculous. Thenof course we have food and baby diapers and food.
                                   There's just a lot with my wife 2 children and a new born.  On a E-2s budget.

                                   from TX. Coming back it was hard to find employment, and I had to accept a
                                   very low paying job to make ends meet. We are a family of 7 and really are
                                   looking to get back on our feet soon. Any help we could get for the kids would

                                   of savings to fix and still will loose house. Recently my wife went back to
                                   school to be able to find a better job and hopefully will ....so things can
                                   get better. Thanks for everything that you do...you are a blessing

                                   an uninsured motor vehicle, and huge dental bills. Plus the huge cost of living

                                   children (male) age 15, and two females ages 14, and 12 I would love to see

                                   that happen for them this year and fear that they will have to face yet another
                                   disappointment. We are reaching out to anyone that can help us.

                                   it has finally caught up to him. We have 5 children in the home. 15 girl, 13

                                   Hello I was wondering if you could possibly help me with Christmas this year.
                                   My name is Andrea and I was just recently medically retired from the Army and
                                   just moved down to Florida. I'm a single mom of a 4 year old little girl, and
                                   I am unable to work due to my injuries which puts a huge damper on the holiday
                                   season. Anything would help me provide her with an AMAZING holiday after an
                                   EXTREMELY tough and trying year. Thank you and God bless.
                                    Elizabeth Sykes Thank you

                                   retired due to injuries substained while in Iraq. We have been having a hard
                                   time since he got out and adjusting to being on a very fixed income.  We have
                                   4 children and have not been able to  start any Christmas shopping yet. We
                                   have 1 pay between now and Christmas but wont have very much left over after
                                   we pay bills. All of this is very hard on my children everyday and I would
                                   just love to give them a good Christmas.

                                   Christmas help needed for a family of 5, 12 year Veteran, who has been furlough
                                   from his job since summer. We have 3 children boy age 11, girl age 5 and boy aged
                                   4. Looking for any help at all this holiday season. Children are happy with
                                   anything and everything. Toys, gift cards anything what so ever, anything that
                                   can help. With now paying medical bills since we no longer have military insurance
                                   bills are now getting beyond our control. We have dental work needed for the family
                                   we can not even afford to do. Please considering helping this veteran family.

                                   We are a family of 4 and we are seriously hurting financially. We moved to
                                   camp Pendleton California in April from North Carolina. We own a home in NC
                                   and with the cultural differences we have been struggling to pay the mortgage.
                                   My husband is a sgt in the marine corps and he brings home $350 a paycheck.
                                   We have done everything in our power to make ends meet and in turn our children
                                   will not be getting much for Christmas. Owning a home is a great thing until
                                   you move and this happens. We would greatly appreciate any help we can get.
                                   Even if it's for groceries. Thanks for the consideration.

                                   take a compassionate reassignment to our current post. The move has caused us
                                   not to be able to provide a Christmas for our kids. I have had to watch my wife
                                   cry because she is worried our kids will wake up Christmas morning with nothing
                                   under the tree. Our only wish is that the kids have a Christmas. Thank You.

                                   help. We have fallen on some hard times this yr. We are now negative in our

                                   We are a family of 5 in need of a little help. My husband injured while in
                                   National Guard and is waiting on honorable discharge papers, now considered
                                   VET. He has PTSD along with other injuries. We have 3 kids, our oldest turned
                                   10 today and he has PTSD, ODD and mood disorder. Our 6 yr old son and then our
                                   daughter is a few weeks old. I myself lost my job before getting pregnant due
                                   to having surgery 8 times back to back for kidney stones. So now we find our
                                   selfs behind on bills and unable to do anything for Christmas. Please anything
                                   would be a blessing to our family.

                                   We are currently making ends meet from one paycheck to the next and this year
                                   we will not have the funds to purchase anything for our boys (ages 8, 6 and 4
                                   months) this Christmas. Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in

                                   We are looking for help for our kids for Christmas. We have five children and
                                   are moving a few weeks before Christmas and can't afford all expenses and
                                   Christmas. And help would be wonderful. Our kids range in age from 17 to 8
                                   months. We are looking for anything from gift cards to actual gifts. My
                                   husband is active duty army.

                                   Hi, I'm writing to ask for some help with Christmas this year.  My husband is
                                   full time National Guard.  I recently lost my job and have been unable to find
                                   another one.  I have been keeping a couple of children for some extra work, but
                                   now I'm only watching one, so that has decreased our income even more.  My
                                   unemployment has run out.  I wouldn't ask for the help if it weren't for my kids.
                                   I can't imagine not being able to provide them with gifts.  Thank you for
                                   considering us.

                                   My husband is an active in the Army. This is the very first year that we will
                                   not be able to afford to give our children the Christmas they deserve. My
                                   husband has just left for deployment to Kuwait and it's really hard doing
                                   things with one income. I am also eight months pregnant and on bed rest. When
                                   my husband deployed our kids and I had to move closer to my family which is
                                   in Texas. Our sons are 5, 3, and the last will be born Dec. 27, 2013. It would
                                   be a pleasure if we could have some assistance. My family would be very grateful
                                   for everything you're able to do.

                                   My family is requesting assistance this holiday season. We have a lot of
                                   expenses that are unforeseen and therefore I doubt we will have a christmas. 
                                   We have a mice problem and caused me to throw out most of my foods that were in
                                   cabinets. My daughters toys that were also covered with feces were thrown out.

                                   our daughter senior year, so we decided to make a sacrifice for her & stay in
                                   San Diego and let my husband go alone. This has been hard on us financially &

                                   as parents we would like to give our kids at least a nice Holiday dinner so some

                                   homeless and welfare recipients. We would appreciate any help anyone can give
                                   so our children may have a Christmas and not feel the effect of this hard time.

                                   in the current economy. We have two children who deserve the world. I have been
                                   unable to work due to many health problems and surgeries I have become permanently
                                   disabled. I fear each year as to how I am going to support my children's needs
                                   or how I will make Christmas happen for them. Husband is a two time Iraq war vet
                                   and just finished serving in Afghanistan served for 8+ years. I can't sleep at
                                   night I'm am so worried. Our boy is 11 and our girl is 8 and sadly we struggle
                                   daily bills, food ,clothes for children every month. I do everything I can to make
                                   every dollar stretch. But we literally have nothing left at the end of every month
                                   If anyone out there can help or knows where I can go for help I would be so thankful.

                                   lifestyle. We have 2 children a girl 4 and a boy 3. We are currently living
                                   paycheck to paycheck and going to food banks on weekly basis. We are asking
                                   for assistance with Thanksgiving food and a little Christmas for the kids we
                                   are not able to give them that this year. Thank you.

                                   the back of his leg.. He is now served 17 years in the navy and only an e6 . My only

                                   Living paycheck to paycheck and the holidays are upon us with little to
                                   nothing to go towards gifts for our 2b & 4g year olds. My husband is a 24 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. My greatest fear is that my kids will wake up to nothing at Christmas. I
                                   know this is probably a long shot but I truly don't know where else to turn.

                                   11/08/13. My husband is an E6. We are asking for Christmas assistance for the
                                   kids. They have been through alot this year. June they lost their great grandma
                                   to cancer, then in July we found out that their grandpa has less then a year
                                   left. When we asked them to make list for Christmas all they want is to visit
                                   grandpa for thanksgiving. I cried when they told me, so in turn what we had
                                   saved up for Christmas is now going into gas money to drive 12 hours to Indiana
                                   I don't want them to miss spending time with their grandpa. Any kind of help
                                   small or big is more then enough.  Thank you and god bless:)

                                   country move.   Finances are such that we can not visit family for the holidays
                                   let alone give gifts. A hard decision because this was the first time in three
                                   years his brothers would all be in the states. Three of his five brothers have
                                   or are serving in the military so it is rare they can all be together. I was
                                   hoping for help so I could surprise my husband with a road trip home to Virginia.

                                   Family of 5 currently serving in Fort Lewis, Alaska with three children. This
                                   is our favorite time of year, we love Christmas and everything it stands for.
                                   It saddens me that it seems the bills just keep piling up and at this point
                                   in time I have no idea how my wife and I are going to be able to afford Christmas,
                                   we have 3 amazing kids who I would give the world to if I could, but money is
                                   tight and although Christmas is not about the presents, it would be nice to give
                                   them something. Thank you and many blessings.

                                   Family of 4 stationed out of Fort Hood, Texas, with my husband enroute to
                                   Aghanistan. The past few months we have barely made ends meet. Setting your
                                   pride aside is not an easy thing  when it comes to asking for help.
                                   However at the end of the day my children come first, and I want them to have
                                   an awesome Christmas despite their daddy being deployed. Thank you.

                                   Live in San Diego, CA. Im currently an E-3 Airman in the united states navy.
                                   When we first moved out here from Florida we had fraud on our debit account.
                                   The bank gave us a temporary credit but just yesterday took it all back saying
                                   they cant prove it was fraud. I lost over a thousand dollars, My daughter turns
                                   1 on Dec. 18th and that money was all i had not only for gas and groceries but
                                   also for my daughters birthday and christmas as well as my wifes christmas. So
                                   now we are short on bills, gas and groceries and those 2 important days look
                                   like they may not happen. Me and my family would be so grateful for any help
                                   you could offer.
                                    Katie McDaniel-Stevens Thank you

                                   My husband is an active duty e-4. We have a three year old boy and 3 month
                                   old daughter. We are financially unable to provide for our children at the
                                   moment and have no where to turn. We know we cannot provide a Christmas for
                                   them, hopefully next year will turn around, but we are seeking assistance so
                                   that we can purchase them winter clothing. Also, our alternator just went out
                                   in our only vehicle and we don't have the funds to repair

                                   multiple surgeries.  We depleted our savings account trying to keep up but
                                   now we are down to nothing.  We would really love if anyone can help us "get
                                   home" for the holidays.  All we are asking for is a gift of gas cards.  My
                                   family provides for our children, we just need help getting them there!

                                   My name is Olivia DeMoray and I am a human resource specialist E-4 Army
                                   Reservist, married to an aeronautical electrician E-5 active duty in the Navy.
                                   We live in San Diego, and are expecting our first child (Reina) January 2014.
                                   My husband was in a car accident due to inclement weather. His tires lost 
                                   traction on the road and spun out, causing his car to hit a guard rail,
                                   deploying the side airbag and almost totaling the car. My husband is fine (thank
                                   God) but our car is not. Our insurance deductible is only $1000, but with the
                                   baby on the way and other due bills (hospital, etc) we may not be able to pay to
                                   get his car fixed. Really hoping some kind-hearted person out there will be able
                                   to help us with this issue.

                                   I live in Cartage, NC near Fort Brag. I'm in the Army. My wife lost her income
                                   almost a year ago. She recently got a job and in a great school district so we
                                   moved near her new work. I just deployed. The new house has a mold problem and
                                   my wife is having reactions to it. The landlord gave her 30 days to move out and
                                   does not plan to fix it. I don't have the money to move again. I would like to
                                   keep my kids in the same Moore county school district if possible. Can anyone
                                   help us pay to get into a different house? Thank you.

                                   and had to undergo a  hysterectomy 9weeks ago. Our youngest son 
                                   has had to many medical issues to count. I don't know how we got 
                                   so in debt but we did. We could really use assistance for the holidays 
                                   with clothing for the kids. If anyone be of assistance that would be 
                                   amazing and such a blessing. The kids are understanding that mommy 
                                   can't work right now and Santa can't bring much, but I'm hoping to at 
                                   least be able to give them the clothes they need for the winter.

                                   I have a disability claim in with Veterans Affairs (since June of 2012), but
                                   it is taking a very long time to process, and the job I do have doesn't pay
                                   much, and is also bad for my back injury, but it is all I can find for now.
                                   This morning my car was repossessed since we have fallen so far behind in our
                                   monthly payments.  We are also behind on our Credit Cards, our phone bills,
                                   and our power bill.  If there is assistance available we would certainly
                                   appreciate it.  Thank you for your time.

                                   Hello. We are asking for help to get our little one Christmas this year.My
                                   Husband is Air Force  We took custody of our 3 year old grandson with special
                                   needs and will start the adoption process hopefully soon.Paying for all the
                                   court cost and therapy items he has needed out of our own pocket has caused
                                   us to fall short and unable to buy him Christmas this year.Definitely a spot
                                   we never thought we would be in, but he is our world and we would do it all
                                   over again. Thank you

                                   appreciate donation of small gifts to handout to the crew members children. All
                                   age children. Any help is appreciated. We have been struggling with finances
                                   because finding a job in Hawaii is very hard, as the business know we are
                                   military and prefer long term employees rather then someone that will move

                                   Hello, we are in Virginia beach, va. My husband is in the Navy. We have struggled
                                   this year. We had to travel thousands of miles due to the loss of my grandmother.
                                   My children mean the world to me. My husband just has surgery last Friday on his
                                   knee. Both cars have had to be fixed, we had to move due to sewer leaks in the house.
                                   I just want my children and husband to have a good Christmas and a great Christmas
                                   dinner. That is what is wish for this year. I wish nothing for myself but hope that
                                   all will be fine, and my family can wake up and have a little something under the
                                   tree. Thank you and God bless.

                                   In a year our health's has gotten 10x worse. We have four children but one I had to
                                   fly back because her asthmas is far worse than the other two that also suffers. My
                                   youngest daughter and myself are now taking steroids to control her breathing and
                                   mine.Also her eczema is worse due to the weather here. I have migraines everyday
                                   due to the weather. My second oldest son is Asperger's Syndrome is still 16 yrs old
                                   and his behavior has gotten worse. We need money to help fly us home and find a place
                                   to stay for about 3 mos. My husband dedicated his whole life to the Marine Corps and
                                   did several tours in the Iraq (got injured) and he cannot believe how they just flat
                                   out show no empathy. As long as they have him that is all that is all that matters. I
                                   do not want him to lose all of his benefits over our health issues. If you can direct
                                   us to other organization that can help that would be welcomed greatly. I thank you for
                                   your time.

                                   We have quite a bit of debt, one in particular is a truck my husband voluntarily
                                   repossessed. When we found out we were pregnant we knew we could no longer afford
                                   the truck and voluntarily repossessed under the assumption it would greatly
                                   decrease our monthly payments. This unfortunately was not the case and are expected
                                   to pay $589 a month which we honestly can not afford.My husband and I are in the US

                                   time and consideration.

                                   without a Christmas this year if we do not get help. My wife can not work due
                                   to being my 24/7 caregiver (as I am 100% disabled).

                                   We are requesting Christmas help this year for our Son 13 and our daughter 9.
                                   My husband is an active duty soldier and I am a full-time student.I have been
                                   searching for a job, but with no luck. I am also having surgery in November
                                   and will not be able to work for at least 3 weeks due to the recovery process.
                                   This does make it harder to get hired. We have always made things work, but
                                   this year has been tough on us. If you are willing to help our children Thank
                                   you so much and God Bless.
                                   Pastor Smith Jackson Chapel Church Thank you

                                   Looking for Christmas help for my medically challenged child, he recently had
                                   his 24th surgery and will be having number 25 in a few weeks. He is 5 years
                                   old and severely developmentally delayed. Back in may after his 5th birthday
                                   he was diagnosed with epilepsy.
                                   He loves things that light up and make noises and cars.. If you could please
                                   help me give him a good Christmas that would be wonderful. I'm unable to work
                                   due to his health and in march I was diagnosed with a sever heart condition
                                   that will need open heart surgery in the next few years.

                                   Hello. I was wondering if you could help my family out. We are a Active Duty
                                   Navy family with 6 kids and 2 adults. We are almost out of food we have enough
                                   for 2 days. I am in Lemoore California. I have 6 kids ages 16,13,12,7,5 and 2.
                                   Then there is me and my husband. Thank you.

                                   Our family of 3 has been paycheck to paycheck for awhile now and the thought
                                   of not being able to provide a wonderful Christmas for my family brings tears
                                   to my eyes daily.  It's been difficult for me to reach out for help because I
                                   am always the first in line to help others.  It's hard to admit to failure,
                                   but I am putting my pride aside and asking for help to provide my family with
                                   a Christmas they deserve.  Thank you in advance for helping our family!  God
                                   bless you :)

                                   care full time for everyone because of my husbands triggers and command. Due to a
                                   my husbands fathers death recently we used all of our funds to live until housing
                                   was made available.We recently had to file bankruptcy because we were living off
                                   of our credit cards and have used all of our savings. We live off pasta and ground
                                   beef mainly because of funds. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Any. We
                                   are not greedy and would be so happy if we could just get help to give each kid
                                   one gift for Christmas or food for Christmas dinner. Thank you so much.

                                   We are currently  having financial difficulties. I am unemployed but actively seeking
                                   employment with no luck thus far. Our children ages are 17,13,5,2 and 3months. My
                                   husband is currently deployed to Afghanistan, during his previous deployments he was
                                   able to be home for Christmas however, this year we will be apart. I would like this
                                   Christmas to be extra special to our children during the absence of their father.
                                   Thank you for your time and God Bless.

                                   Good afternoon, I was wondering how do you go about getting assistance for
                                   Christmas. I have a some who is in the hospital just about every month and
                                   traveling from ft bragg to unc has made things rough. I don't want a lot but I
                                   just wanted to see if there were any organizations or places you might be able
                                   to direct us with. My hope was to get my son an iPad, which his sister and
                                   brother could share but that's just not happening since gas, and the parking
                                   garage has taken a lot from us. Thanks god bless and sorry for the bother.

                                   We are an active duty military family with 2 severely disabled kids. 
                                   Victoria is almost 3  She is blind, death and has hypotonic Cerebral Palsy.
                                   The wheelchair was the biggest headache and a medical necessity we fought
                                   months to get. I am just so relieved that Tricare finally approved it.
                                   Victoria may be in the hospital during the Holidays as she has surgery coming
                                   up to put in a central line for TPN. She is currently fed through GJ Tube but
                                   not doing well. A central line is a semi-permanent IV line that goes into her
                                   chest and she will get nutrition that way. Our 5 yr old has major oral surgery
                                   in Dec too so we need prayers more than anything.

                                   My husband has been on 2 overseas deployments in the past 5 years, Iraq and
                                   Afghanistan. We need a way to get myself and my son to and from work and daycare.
                                   My husband had to go to FL to help care for his dying mother for 8 weeks with
                                   no income. My car needs at least $920.81 in repairs plus maintenance costs but
                                   there is about $824.56 of it that the Mechanic said should be first priority
                                   for safety reasons. ANY help is greatly appreciated."

                                   My husband is in the Navy. I have two daughters ages 9 and 11( Ahna and Amelia).
                                   I moved to this area 8 months ago and my husband went to Japan for shore duty.
                                   We have been struggling to keep the bills in line and don't have much leftover
                                   for the basics. We are in need of food, clothes and toys for the girls especially
                                   since Christmas and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I have been looking
                                   for a job to help my husband. We need a little boost to help in the between time.
                                   Thank you so much for helping in advance.

                                   my husband after his tour in Afghanistan 2011-2012 his PTSD got the best of
                                   him and he got a DWI. due to us having 3 kids and 1 on the way & him only
                                   working part time right now, we don't have the money to support the kids, fix
                                   our only family vehicle, and pay his fine. if his fine doesn't get paid he
                                   goes to jail and i cant work due to being pregnant so that would leave the
                                   kids and I worse off. if someone could please help to keep him out of jail
                                   that would be great. his fine is $1200. I'm not asking for bill related help
                                   due to the fact that we are considered a homeless family "doubled up" living
                                   with another family until some god given miracle happens. so thank you for
                                   taking the time and god bless

                                   We have 2 great kids, who have had a really rough year. My son was diagnosed
                                   with Autism and a few weeks later, out daughter was diagnosed with cancer that
                                   has since left her paralyzed. Christmas is going to be rough, so we are just
                                   hoping to get a little help getting a few small things for under the tree.
                                   Anything at all is appreciated. Thank you!

                                   to a recent huge vehicle repair bill and have worked as hard as we can to make
                                   cuts to ensure we can provide for our family. We hardly have any money for food
                                   and we won't have any extra funds for Christmas presents for our two children
                                   and are hoping we might be able to be sponsored for Christmas this year. We are
                                   devastated at the thought of disappointing the kids.

                                   This year will mark the 2nd Christmas I have been deployed  and have spent
                                   away from my almost 2 year old little boy. Without going into detail, I will
                                   just say, financially its.been a devestating year. However, If theres one
                                   thing I could not wish more for my family while I am gone, is that given the
                                   providing circumstances they are able to enjoy to the fullest  the holiday
                                   season and are given the Christmas they deserve. I hope somehow, someway this

                                   Hi, my name is Rodney Bexten and I am a 2LT in the Army National Guard,
                                   working (or now laid off I should say) for the Army as a Federal Technician.
                                   This shutdown has caught us at a terrible time as my fiancée recently lost
                                   her job and had to take one 3 hours away so we are paying an apartment payment
                                   and a house payment. I am scared we will not be able to make any payments and
                                   was hoping for some kind of help to keep our 3 kids with a roof over their heads!

                                   Christmas this year. My wife and I really want to be able to make it a special
                                   one for our two children. My wife is finishing her last year of school and we
                                   used all of our savings to replace our water heater that flooded our basement,
                                   so we are unable to provide a Christmas for our children. Thank you so much for
                                   considering helping my family.

                                   will not be back home till April. I am trying to be prepared for the holidays
                                   and money will be super tight. I am trying to finish my degree in Public Health
                                   and I hope to apply to medical school. Childcare costs are eating up all of
                                   our extra money.  I do not want to ask for money. I just need help for a few
                                   toys and clothes for our kids and maybe a box to be sent to my husband who is
                                   overseas. Thank you so much for any help you can offer. It means a great deal
                                   to me that people still care for our troops that are deployed.

                                   am in need of help for thanksgiving and Christmas. I deploy out this summer
                                   and would like to give my girls a good holiday season. It has been a bad yr
                                   emotionally and financially. I'm asking for help with the holidays for my
                                   girls being that I may not be able to give it to them. Can you or do you

                                   I recently returned home from Afghanistan from a year long deployment. Since
                                   then I have been attending a police academy for my new job, but the pay is not
                                   enough to support my family at this time (until I graduate). I have two sons
                                   who are having birthday's in the next coming weeks and I am unable to provide
                                   anything for them beyond food and pay utilities. My one son will be 9 and the
                                   other 3. Their birthdays are October 6th and October 13th. If anyone would be
                                   able to help with a cake or a small toy it would be a wonderful thing for them.
                                   Last year I was not hear to enjoy their birthday and the year that I am home I
                                   can't afford one. Please help!

                                   Hi my name is Jessica Renfro and my husband and I are in desperate need of
                                   some food assistance. We are extremely behind of bills and are unable to get
                                   caught up because we are more focused on keeping our family fed. We no longer
                                   have insurance on our vehicle because we could not afford it and we are about
                                   to lose our cell service. If we could just get a little food assistance to
                                   help us fill our fridge we would be so thankful. Tough times are upon us and
                                   right now they aren't looking any better.

                                   My husband just got back from a 1 year tour from Afghanistan.  With the
                                   economy being so rough it is hard for him to find a job.  Being in National
                                   Guard isn't a main income. I am in school full time and we have an 8 year old
                                   son.  We would just like some help for our son's Christmas presents. Last year
                                   was so hard with daddy gone and this is tough with lack of income.  He is our
                                   only child and we want him to be happy this year at Christmas. Thank you for
                                   the consideration.

                                   We are a family of 5 and my husband is an E5 in the Army. We are a blended
                                   family, newly married in January 2013. We have been struggling to make ends
                                   meet lately. We are currently trying to pay for a lawyer to change our temporary
                                   custody to permanent custody of one of our children which is $2500. We are very
                                   worried about how we will afford Christmas this year for them with much of our
                                   income going to bills, groceries and lawyers. Obtaining custody is extremely
                                   important to us, as it's what is best for the child. We feel awful that we are
                                   not sure how we will afford Christmas this year for the kids. We have a 5yo
                                   daughter, 3yo daughter and 2yo son.

                                   have 6 kids. My husband is in South Korea right now serving a year there. We
                                   are in Antelope, CA. We could use help for Christmas. It has been hard supporting
                                   2 households so any help would be appreciated. It would be a miracle and this is
                                   just a wish list but if someone could pay for passports for me and the children,
                                   pay for airfare and hotel accommodations for us to be with my husband for Christmas.
                                   I know that is a lot to even ask but I thought I would put it out there.

                                   one I have found is $361.17 at Lowes, which is what I am asking for, as my father-in-law

                                   last month and they filed on us.  However, we paid it before the court date.
                                   All I have now is a money order for 400.00 and my faith. Thank you for taking
                                   the time to read this.

                                   We drove from Maryland to Washington state and are now in need of new brakes
                                   and rotors. Ontop of that we have school coming up for our to oldest girls and
                                   both need uniforms. Anything would be great to help us. Tires will cost us
                                   around $400 for all 4 and brakes and rotors will be about $200 to be replace.
                                   School clothes we are looking at $200 at the discount store. Please if you can

                                   husband and I and 5 kids), we have 2 of my in-laws staying with us until they
                                   get on their feet, leaving us to live pay check to pay check. If anyone could

                                   My family has been going through an extremely tough time.  We bought a home a
                                   few months before my husband deployed. He was gone for a year. During that time
                                   our home was discovered to have extensive mold, electrical, and concrete damage.
                                   Since then, we have found extensive termite damage and I fear that we will lose
                                   our home.  We are currently living in a Navy Lodge and our house is torn apart.
                                   We are at rock bottom and trying to save our home. Any help would be greatly
                                   appreciated. Thank you so much for reading this and God Bless. -Tracy,

                                   because of a delayed rank issue with my husband as he is deployed (Afghanistan)
                                   and things don't necessarily move as swift over there.  We moved from Texas and
                                   the school clothes code (uniform code) is completely different here in Liberty

                                   know of any places that help with assistance for clothing (back to school clothes)

                                   help. Everything was planned to succeed and almost did. Bought a house for cash
                                   in Flint, MI. Needed alot of work and I have completed most of the work replacing
                                   all electrical plumbing plaster insulation. But I have drained my account and
                                   have no money to finish.  5 windows must be replaced because they are broke,
                                   the others will suffice. Still need appliances and kitchen cabinets. Staying at
                                   my Mother's house and don't want to impose with such a big family. I underestimated
                                   the cost of materials. Anyway to get help with the things I need? I really need
                                   a place for my family.

                                   something to help up get back on our feet. Any help would be amazing. Thank

                                   We've fallen on temporary  financial difficulties. Our youngest son was born
                                   with an eye condition called SEVERE STRABIMUS. Our rainy day funds went towards
                                   the (3) 260 mile round trips in preparation for his eye surgery, then received
                                   a bill for us to pay half for services rendered, DUE TO THE ARMY'S BUDGET CUTS.
                                   What we are in need of are beds for our children. Currently they've been
                                   sleeping on beds that are in dire need of replacement. Angels we're in need of
                                   help. Thank You

                                   Hi My wife and I are both active duty marines stationed at cherry point. Recently
                                   we have come into some extremely difficult financial trouble and are currently
                                   behind on almost every bill. At this point we literally have no money accessible
                                   in any of our accounts. We have five children and are hoping that the food we have
                                   and gas in our vehicle will last till payday. Anything will help. Even if its 10
                                   dollars to get a haircut. We are desperate. Thank you for taking the time to read

                                   Single-parent, with a teenage son who is set to go to college in Fall 2013. I
                                   recently had to sell my car for pre-enrollment and books so my son could start
                                   college on time.  I am an E-4 in the Army, stationed at West Point, NY. We are
                                   not illegible for too many grants, so I have applied for Stafford Loans to help
                                   with tuition. However, with mounting debt my credit isn't good enough to get
                                   loans for another car.  I have asked other family members to help, but due to
                                   so many lay-offs they can not help. All the car dealerships around are asking
                                   for a minimum of $3000.00 down payment just for a used car. I am at my witts
                                   end, because I need a car for basic transportation.  Currently, I walk to work
                                   and ask other co-workers for rides to the commissary but that is difficult at
                                   times.  I am requesting assistance in getting another used car so my son and I
                                   can have basic transportation. Thank you and God Bless!

                                   Hello, I am a father of two young kids and am now going through a separation.
                                   I have no money to leave. I need help paying some of the bills before my wife
                                   and I go our separate ways. The rent is behind 3 months: $900, my car is behind:
                                   $450, the lights are behind: $190. I am asking for help. There is barely any
                                   food in the fridge and cabinets. I haven't had a good meal in a while so my babies
                                   could eat. I have never asked for help and I find myself broken and in need.

                                   Hi. I am looking for help for airfare I guess in funds or airline miles maybe
                                   your not going to use. My father is fighting cancer (winning the battle so far!
                                   Yea) and now my mother has began having some heart problems. I hate that I, their
                                   only daughter, and only 4 grand kids are across the county from them. I am lucky
                                   that I have kids that want to spend time with them. With all the health problems
                                   popping up this year it has really hit me that I am the adult now and my parents
                                   are not invincible.  The kids go on summer break soon and I just want to get us
                                   to see them. If you are someone that can help us, all I can say is we all thank
                                   you for giving us time together.

                                   in Afghanistan. I was wounded on Memorial Day 2011 and received my purple heart
                                   on July 4th, 2011. I have been diagnosed with severe TBI and PTSD. Currently I'm
                                   with Wounded Warrior Battalion East and in the process of being medically retired
                                   from the USMC. I have gotten behind on car payment and need help catching it up
                                   before I don't have an income. If anyone can help God Bless You!!! Thank you to
                                   everyone who helps the wounded.

                                   husband and I are struggling to find jobs due to recently relocating to Watauga,
                                   Tx from Nebraska. We are seeking assistance for our utility bills (electricity
                                   and water). Our military obligations are our priority but worrying about our

                                   burden on our country, yet it is our desire to serve our country with a sense of 
                                   normalcy and if its any way possible to receive some type of assistance from you 
                                   or the organization if would be greatly appreciated.

                                   We are struggling financially. We just received the clear to close on our first
                                   home and will be doing so 20 June 2013. Our on post housing community has delayed
                                   our clearing until 11 July 2013, which means we are not going to have BAH until
                                   on or after 15 August 2013. Our first mortgage payment is the 1 August 2013 and
                                   will have a hard time making this payment because of it. Any help to our family
                                   will be greatly appreciated.

                                   out of an apartment that is not billing us $685 for damages and repairs. We have
                                   tried to make payments on this as best we can but with 3 kids we have now been
                                   limited to very small payments when we can make them. ANYTHING would help. It needs
                                   to be paid by mid June and we just don't have the money to pay it or the car payments
                                   and our current rent will become past due. It is now in collections and to avoid
                                   negative reporting and them taking it up with his command has to be paid.

                                   I’m humbly requesting assistance with my car payment due to recent financial
                                   hardship.  My wife was recently injured at work and hasn’t been able to work
                                   her normal hours.  To make matters worse, we’ve had to do some unexpected
                                   maintenance on our only car, which has cost us much more than we expected.
                                   Also, last week my wife’s wallet was stolen which contained her recent paycheck.
                                   All these unexpected circumstances have greatly impacted our finances and
                                   cannot afford to make our payment.  We are currently behind two car payments
                                   of $456.00 but any amount would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

                                   I am reaching out for help to cover a bill that my insurance wouldn't completely 
                                   cover.My daughter's father was in my apartment preparing for the gun range. His
                                   firearm went off striking the sprinkler line in my apartment flooding it and the 
                                   apartment below me. Extensive damage was caused and my renter's
                                   insurance would only cover a portion of it. This left me with a $5000 bill
                                   that I cannot cover because all of this happened as I was in the process of
                                   buying a home. Please help.

                                   Assistance with the repair of my wife's car. I own a 2005 Chrysler 300 in which the main
                                   bearing in the engine went bad, thus destroying the engine. We still owe $11200 on the car.
                                   The cost of repair is looking to be approx $3500, I do have quotes for both engine costs
                                   and having it replaced. My wife is a nurses aid at Rapid Regional Medical Center in Rapid
                                   City South Dakota. I applied to the VFW Unmet Needs program and they turned my down stating
                                   that my problem was due to financial mismanagement (I have been paying child support in the
                                   amount of 1100 for about 16 years) thus causing financial hardships over the years. I am not
                                   home finding ways or working a second job to get the car fixed, so there is a definite
                                   hardship which, as I had said earlier that when I return and the car isn't fixed she will not
                                   be able to work. So how am I supposed to solve this dilemma which no one seems to care about.
                                   It still affects me and my family.

                                   was deployed I lost my oldest son to cancer, I returned home for 10 days to
                                   lay my son to rest. My wife became ill and was moved back to the mainland as
                                   I'm stationed overseas.  Upon deployment and after many medical appointment
                                   and all the red tape my wife was diagnosed with brain cancer. With all the

                                   payment coming out of pocket. Since her diagnoses she's been unable to work so
                                   we are a single income family supporting 2 households. I've had to move her to

                                   I await my orders on a compassionate reassignment. I have fallen behind on
                                   every bill. I looking for rent help, car payments and anything possible.I

                                   to moving to VA. We are unable to pay monthly bills and have recently fallen
                                   behind in debts from transitioning to one income that our credit is ruined and
                                   have not been able to repay debts on time. We currently cannot pay our car
                                   payment, overdraft fees or high intrest loans we ve accumulated. I have been
                                   applying to at least three jobs per week, however in order to put children in
                                   childcare the hourly or salary would have to be sufficient but I've not received
                                   any job offers at all .The stress is overwhelming and help is gratefully

                                   greatly appreciate any help(food, clothing, toys etc). It is very difficult
                                   to ask for help but with 2 AER loans out and with 3 small children to care for
                                   I have put my pride aside. Thanks for the consideration.

                                   has come a month sooner then we had expected! We have less then a month to come up
                                   with 1st months payments (taxes, security deposit, HOA fees and insurance = $566.25)
                                   Otherwise we will lose out on this once in a lifetime opportunity!  Here is a link

                                   diagnosed with stage 3 lymphoma. We have 100.00 left in our account until the
                                   30th, and aren't sure how we will make it thru the rest of the month.

                                   We are a  military family with 2 small kids. I got sent to Korea almost 2 years
                                   ago and got told my family will soon follow me. I found out over there that
                                   paperwork got lost and my family had to stay back..But my family was homeless
                                   for 6 months had just a little money .My wife for 6 months  had to stay at friends
                                   places where she could only stay for a few days. After 6 months my wife broke
                                   down and i got sent back.Bills had build up. we needed a car and our son is severely
                                   traumatized from the whole situation. Please if anybody can donate just a little
                                   then maybe we can get new ground under our feet and have a new beginning!!!

                                   our mini van's brakes went out and we had not choice but to have new ones put
                                   on.  My husband had to open a Meineke credit card to charge the $800.  We saved
                                   up just enough money to make the trip to Virginia and do not have any extra and
                                   it will be very difficult to pay for this emergency repair. Any assistance would

                                   I was stationed at Cannon AFB, NM from 2004 - apr 2012. I currently live
                                   in amarillo with my wife and 3 kids. I have recently been awaiting a job at 
                                   the sheriffs dept. but it has not went through yet. I got a job driving a truck 
                                   but then had an accident and can't work for a little while. I am in severe 
                                   need of help with groceries, bills, and most of all rent. I really hope I can 
                                   get some help with this and I will pay it back as soon as I possibly can.

                                   I have a 15 month old son and no income at all. Long story short my husband
                                   has been put in jail for abusing our son. I stopped working when it all happened
                                   to be home with my child but now that he is in jail the Army has taken everything
                                   from us and I have nothing. I'm trying very hard to find a job but I need help!
                                   Any kind of help would be great!

                                   Family of 5 children and 2 adults. My husbands ex wife had credit cards we
                                   didn't know about and my husband is paying for it because she won't. We are
                                   falling behind on our mortgage ($1200/mo), car payment($720/mo), utilities
                                   ($450/mo) and groceries($500/mo).  We can only put off creditors for so long
                                   until they take us to court. My husband is supposed to go to NCO Academy in
                                   Texas.  This could affect his 16 year career. We plan on paying forward any
                                   help we can get. Thank you.

                                   Husband got deployed to Afghanistan 6 months after arriving.  We have been
                                   using all the deployment pay to get up to dates on all the bills we were faced
                                   with when we arrived. I bought my husband a used car for when he returned home
                                   and the transmission failed the day after I bought it.  Would love to have help
                                   fixing the car for my husband's return.  Any or all help with getting the car
                                   working before my husband's return would be greatly appreciated.

                                   Im 19 years of age. I just got engaged, and recently my fiance found out she
                                   had ovarian cancer. She lives in Atlanta Georgia and im in Wichita Kansas..
                                   She's only 21, and because of the cancer she has to go to chemo and radiation.
                                   I've literally done everything I can financially even down to selling my
                                   personal items like my car, taking out loans etc to try and pay the bills but
                                   now im starting to come up short. Even though things are hard right now I try
                                   to keep a positive attitude because I know attitude determines altitude and at
                                   the end everything will be okay. Hope to hear from someone soon thanks

                                   I am 2 months past due in rent, including late fees the amount I owe is $2,289.00.
                                   I was anticipating my enlistment bonus check on February 4th, 2013 in the amount
                                   of $2500 and then was told I would not receive it until February 20th, 2013.
                                   Unfortunately I was unemployed last month and have since gained employment. The
                                   property Mgt. was lenient in anticipation of my bonus check. Due to a clerical error
                                   my bonus check has been withheld for the time being.I had to appear in magistrate
                                   court February 27th, 2013. If the rent is paid today or I at least have an answer
                                   on when I can pay it today  the eviction process will be terminated , If not my
                                   fiance , my 6 month old daughter and I will be without a home. I have no where else
                                   to turn. If you can assist my family in our time of need , I can assure you when I
                                   recieve my bonus check I will repay you in full.

                                   We are in desperate need of financial assistance.We bought our home in April
                                   2012 on our 1 year anniversary. Not long after I was laid off at work. I was
                                   a Temp for the Army National Guard in hopes of being placed in a permanent
                                   slot at the FMS28 shop in Mobile Al. Due to cutbacks in our military I was
                                   not able to get a full time position. My wife worked for RaCON Inc driving
                                   packer tractors but due to all of the rain was not able to work hardly at all.
                                   We have since then found jobs but have gotten so behind on our bills we cannot
                                   see a way out of this financial nightmare. We will soon lose our vehicles as
                                   well as our home and our credit. If anyone can help us it would be such a
                                   blessing and a relief.

                                   We are in dire need of assistance. My husband is an amputee who chose to stay
                                   in the Army and we are paying for the decision financially. We need help putting
                                   food on the table for our children and our truck is on the brink of being
                                   repossessed and we can't afford to put gas in to get through to the next pay
                                   check. We are struggling beyond belief and have no where else to turn for
                                   assistance. We would deeply appreciate the help.  Thank you

                                   My family and I are in need of assistance due to my being out of work because
                                   I had to have shoulder surgery to repair an active duty injury. I have a wife,
                                   an 8 month old son, and a baby girl on the way with our home about to be
                                   foreclosed on at the end of the month. The transmission went bad in my Jeep
                                   and my wife's car is quickly falling apart from the ware of the necessary weekly
                                   trips to the VA hospital that is located about 200 miles from our home.

                                   currently facing a financial hardship. My wife has been diagnosed with stomach
                                   cancer and has been in the hospital since November 11, 2012. Medically, the
                                   doctors are saying it's nothing additional they can do, due to the extent of
                                   the cancer. We have a total of 4 children. 2 of which, are not currently living
                                   with me due to the financial hardship. I currently provide the only income in
                                   the house. Anything would help. Thanks in advance.

                                   Requesting Financial Assistance. Active Duty Marine Sergeant, Marine Corps
                                   Support Facility, New Orleans, LA. Lost everything we owned in a house fire. I
                                   was 8 months pregnant with a husband (prior service Marine) and 1 year old
                                   Daughter. We had a small renters insurance policy which only covered a small
                                   portion of our losses. We have had a difficult time recovering from this, and
                                   still have many items that need replacing which has caused a financial burden.
                                   Any information you may be able to provide me and my family would be greatly

                                   My name is SPC Jimenez. I just came back from deployment on Jan 2013. My wife
                                   and (3) kids are Canadian and we have been working on the relocation process
                                   to move here. This process has proven to be more expensive than we ever expected.
                                   Starting in April my wife's rent will double and we we don't have the resources
                                   to keep up with this. If this continues my family could end up evicted. Any help
                                   would be appreciated.

                                   My husband (Wounded Warrior Veteran - USMC) and I moved from his discharge to
                                   his tech school location. The move took quite a bit out of us and we are mostly
                                   living off of savings until his full VA pay comes in and I land a job. Our rent
                                   will be coming up in two weeks and we are struggling to be able to pay the full
                                   amount ($875). Anything would help if you are able to provide.

                                   A heartfelt THANK YOU!
