I am a full time student and a full time mother so my budget is very tight so i have been saving money back for Christmas for about 6 months, well last month right before black Friday my truck broke literally my axle and barrings broke so the money i had saved I had to use for my truck do to the fact that I needed it to get to school as well as take my babies to school. Now i am stuck with nothing I don't even have a tree or decorations to put up for them, I wont receive another loan till the end of next month and I have tried to get a loan or borrow money from anyone and no one will help me. I am asking for help and I can pay you back I am just asking to help my Children to have a Christmas it will brake their heart if Santa doesn't come see them and I am not asking for anything for my self I just want my children to have a Christmas!

The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund provides advocacy, education, information and financial assistance for the uninsured needs of families caring for terminally, critically and chronically ill, seriously disabled or severely injured children.

By working directly with healthcare professionals social workers, case managers, nurses and therapists throughout PA, NJ and DE, patients and their families needs are made known to the Fund through a simple application process.  Requests for assistance are generally handled within 24 to 72 hours in the form of payments to creditors for bills or the donation of goods. This simple method of operation assures eligibility for assistance and avoids the misappropriation of funds.

The Christmas Unlimited method of distributing gifts is what sets it apart from other holiday programs.  The process includes the following elements:
  • Applications for assistance are distributed by over sixty community service agencies in El Paso and Teller counties
  • Clients select a day and time they can be at the Distribution Center
  • An Invitation is sent to each family confirming their shopping appointment
  • We ask clients to not bring their children to the Distribution Center
  • The Distribution Center is set-up like a retail store
    - Volunteers assume retail store jobs
    - Gift items have a price tag (although there is no charge)
    - Parents are issued a "shopping pass" giving them points to "spend" as they would   dollars
    - The total number of points is determined by the number of children
    - At check-out clients receive a stuffed toy, a book, stocking stuffers, and other items  as 
      posted for each of the children  "

So many of us are in need of help for Christmas this year . I know . Last year I didn't ( I didn't have the money )buy any presents for my daughter.

I have many Christmas pages for all of us to use for assistance. They go all the way back to Christmas 2006.

 Some are for free and low-cost presents and stocking stuffers. Some are for Christmas thoughts and some are for Christmas Charities to go to for food , presents and more.

 Please go to my home page and scroll down . You will see links to all of these pages.

I sincerely hope that we all get the desires of our hearts this year , and so do our families.
