  • You are a little late, but MANY places offer assistance. Start with the state you live in.

  • OH for goodness sakes. We all are having problems right now financially. Why don't you make something for them? Ask grandma or grandpa or whoever? I keep seeing this question every day, don't you realize we are (most of us) in the SAME DAMN BOAT? Figure it out. Go to churches. Look around.

  • Maybe it's time for an old fashioned Christmas where it's about teaching our young to be givers, not takers. Work at a local food kitchen. Help someone. Volunteer your time. Raise money for an organization or cause. Make you own presents. So many resources and people with ideas. Let's make it happen and "Pay It Forward!"

  • Contact your local Social Services office (welfare) they will direct you to other places that get you on a list asap... Salvation Army, Toys for Tots... local Churches and food pantries...
