PLEASE HELP ME!!!

My sons best friends mom had knee surgery and it is not healing as fast as it was sopossed to so she has been out of work for almost two months now waiting for it to heal she is a single mom with 4 kids ranging in age from 9 to 15. anyways nick told my son that his mom said they are not going to be able to do christmas this year because she is trying to figure out how o pay the bills so they still have a roof over there heads but after she went back to work and got caught up she would get them each something. And as my son is telling me this he looks like he is going to cry and then says to me Mom nobodey should go without christmas. he asked me if santa was going to remember them and surley he would take them somthing. This was the year my 10 year old learned the truth about santa and he was heart broken not because he knows he isn't real but because it was his last hope for his friend to get somthing for christmas.

  • I'm sorry. I don't have any spare money for shipping otherwise I would help. I live in East TN. I happen to have some of the things from where I bought them on clearance and I was saving them for gifts. I wish the best of luck to you. I think what you are doing is really sweet and is the true meaning of Christmas.

  • would the stuff fit into one of the flat rate boxes? maybe the 10.50 one? if you are willing to or still interested you could box it up and get a rate form the post office for me If you don't want to or don't have time please don't feel pressured by any means please.

  • It's Christmas and this is what Christmas is about. I'll see how much stuff i have and see what it'll cost. I'll send you a message in the morning. BTW I think what your son wants to do is AMAZING. He's a really sweet boy.
