Should I be feeling bad cause I signed up for toys for tots?!?!

My lil man has not had a really good christmas since he was born. He is 6. Its more about family then gifts, but I as his mom still want to feel like i made him happy cause Santa brought him gifts. I applied yesterday, and pick up the gifts the same day I find out sex of my baby! I just feel guilty. yet if you see what the income is, i guess I shouldnt..hmmm

  • I applied yesterday too.. if I didn't, my little man would have no presents because I can't even afford a used toy right now. So, don't feel bad.. I'm there with you.. The only thing that I would feel bad about would be if I didn't apply....

  • Don't feel bad for trying to give your baby a nice christmas. Everyone needs help every now and then.

  • If you truly need it, don't feel bad. That's why people like me donate to that children who wouldn't otherwise get things do. :)

  • Dont feel bad at all. The only people who should feel bad are the people who could give their children presents without it or people who go to several different places to get free gifts

  • I really don't want anyone to feel bad....I really love Toys for Tots and the fact that it gives children great Christmas' And if you're truly in need there is absolutely nothing wrong with applying! I just have one question and if I'm out of line then I'm sorry. Is the computer and internet you're using at a library or at someone else's house? It just makes me curious when there are these posts and they are online. Is the internet something that could be cut in order to save money for Christmas? I just view it as a luxury I guess and not a necessity. And totally disregard this if I'm wrong. I don't mean to pick a fight....just wondering and really curious/nosy. :)
