  • Do you have a salvation army in your area if so then call them they do all that and if you don't have a salvation army then call the health and welfare they should send you on a right track.

  • GEt involved with a church. Talk to the pastor after going a few weeks. Or if you have a social worker, they will advocate for you.

  • Why don't you use this opportunity to teach your children that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus, not getting stuff?

  • Anonymous christmas IS FAR from Jesus' birth. Christmas falls on a pagan holiday, leaders at the time used this to CON-vert people into becoming christians(paulines).

  • Toys for Tots sign up is usually early in November. You may have missed it, but go to their website and find the email address of the organizer in your area. You may be able to still request toys.

    Checks sites like AFullCup.com to find deals. I know there is a really good deal on Toys R Us preschool games right now.

    You could also try to make some toys.

  • Churchs toys for tots. And if you have a little bit of money hit up craigslist. My friend use to do this all the time to save money for bigger gifts. She once bought a barbie jeep for 25.00 bucks. Work and looked perfect but daughter grew out of it!!!!!!

  • Wow. Why is it that some people think someone else has to give them stuff all the time. I hate this welfare mentality. GET A JOB and buy your own dang stuff! Gimme gimme gimme.
