Those that do not even respond to you or thank you, certainly were not looking for a good sould to send them a card, those you can be pretty sure are the frauds. But no, you cannot let that discourage you, everyone does what they can.

I got a little extra money, for that neither of my children has EVER received a Birthday or Christmas card from anyone, as our extended family never took much interest in their lives. So I know how great even a Christmas card can be to get an excited child for a day. Of course, come Christmas morning, the smile is gone and once school starts again and all the kids with money show off what they got, there are those that stand in the corner and say nothing. Those are the ones I want to reach and not to stand in the shadows in a world where possessions to often measure a childs standing in school...

and I believe, no child in America should go to bed hungry, EVER and it is beyond believe to me that that IS happening, every day, right here under our noses.

In light of these children, I take people that are not TRULY in need and helpless, that COULD help themselves and their children, very serious. Once car repair so they don't have to walk or get on a bike, or putting 50 children to bed tonight with a full belly?

you n u r r in alot of ways but see i only can do cards for any one and it takes me time to get them sent off too but i cant look at it that way see i cant do much for my son at all for x-mas but me and son been sending the cards to help the kids put a smile on there face no matter what it makes us feel good to see others smiling i have been sending them over a mth now and i feel god has bless my son  some one in a chruch heard what my job did and the man paid for today for my son get to meet the saints thats a blessing to me so if ppl r doing wrong on here then they will just have to deal with god cause r now im very poor with a sick son and will not n if he will get his disable ck or not for another 2 mths now cause they just test him a few days ago so if some one take our cards that r for the poor just like us then they r wrong i do n what u r saying but i cant sit here and not take that chance cause i dont n if they r real or not i do n a few of them that got it was real but yet on a lot i have not hear from them so i guess its mix in here well god bless youme and son got only one card from 2 lil girls in ny were i sent the 1st x-mas card to thats the only one we got from any one and 2 messag on here from 2 others thanking me that the kids love it and geting mail in there names so thats only 3 out of 2 doz so i do understand were u r coming from

I understand what you are saying. In the end, I leave the judgment to God as well. that however still doesn't keep some people from holding their hands open that truly don't need it and that bothers me.

Especially when you try to help with more then a card, it does concern me not to be a fool about it. I think we can all agree that the internet is simply a place full of fraud and people taking advantage. Just look at all the links around here that bring you to sites expoiding those who need it most (and none of those scams will end up making you any money!)

I know there are folks out there that do scam, which makes it hard for people who really do need help and dont know how they are going to make it, please dont put all the people here in that catagory. I was a single mom for many years and it can be very rough, i never lost faith in god, my kids might not have had fancy things, but they had a roof over thier head, clothes and food, many nights i cried myself to sleep, but our needs where met! Even now with the things that have happened in my life , i know all will be ok,,I WANT ALL TO KNOW THERE IS A GOD AND HE WATCHES OVER US,,PRAY AND HAVE FAITH,,, GOD BLESS YOU ALL !!!!!

I do not mean to offend the innocent. it's just so upsetting when you want to help and have such little means to trust anyone.....

I HEAR YOU ON WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. UNFORTUNATELY WHEN IT COMES TO CELL PHONES IN THE LONG RUN IT IS CHEAPER THAN LAND LINES IF YOU GET THE MNMUM WITHOUT THE EXTRAS. MINE IS A PREPAID FROM VIRGIN AND THE MINUTES I GET IS FOR $50.00 MONTH AND ALLOWS 400 DAY TIME MINUTES AND UNLIMITED NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS WHICH START AT 7PM. MYSELF HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING AND HAD GONE DOWN TO THE BARE NECESSETIES IN BILLS WHICH IS RENT, ELECTRICITY, AND FOOD. I DEFAULTED ON MY AUTO LOAN, GAVE UP CABLE, AND THE THINGS THAT I DIDN'T NEED. I USE THE LIBRARY FOR THE INTERNET AND THE SYSTEM IS NOT ALWAYS PERFECT. PEOPLE WITH CHILDREN NEED TO HAVE PHONES SO THAT IS WHERE A CELL COMES IN HANDY.. MY STATE JUST STARTED A NEW PROGRAM FOR FAMILIES IN NEED AND IF THEY QUALIFY THEY GET A FREE CELL AND FREE MINUTES A MONTH. I KNOW THAT MY FAMILY QUALIFIES BUT THERE ARE FAMILIES THAT ARE OUT THERE THAT ARE IN NEED MORE THAN WE ARE.

I don't understand...

you struggle with basic daily foods...

but doesn't one have to pay to maintain a PO box? Am I wrong here?

Thats like some posts I read where they say "I need help real bad, call me on this number OR ON MY CELL PHONE" ??

How bad is it that when someone actually comes here and wants to help, I cannot dare because evrything I read may be just fraud?

my name is karissa, i am to be turning 18 in a few months and insted of thinking of my 18th birthday im constantly crying about my brothers. Things use to not be so bad years ago. Then my mom was diagnosed with skitsafrania.(shes not there mentally) and my dad works constantly and gets pushed around by his employers. He delivers pizza, construction, anything. I just found out today that my little brother mattew(11)has holes in his shoes, and we cant get new ones. At that point i was wrecked and if i cant find a way to get my brothers presents then im gonna have to sell some of my stuff, my brothers dont desrve this after all they've been through. none of us do. someone please help.
