There are also many wonderful giveaways going on right now.. tis the season!! One that I came across that I would be overjoyed to win is Katie from I Want to be a Super Teacher's giveaway!! 80 dollars worth of gift cards!!! She is so generous and has very generous teachers linking up as well!! This is one you won't want to miss :)
I would like to tell you about a family that my co-worker/friend Katrina works for. It is a small family, Cathy is a single mom, and she has a son, Walter who is a sixteen year old with autism. Last year, Cathy was diagnosed with breast cancer and has been going through the difficulty of treatments ever since. Living in and out of the hospital, she loves and does whatever she can to take care of her baby boy, Walter. This Christmas, being a single mom going through cancer, she cannot afford much for Walter. Walter is a sixteen year old but he has the mental capacity of a six year old right now and still enjoys toys just like any other 6 year old. Cathy and Walter also had 3 cats, and had to get rid of 2 (heartbreakingly) because they couldn't afford the litter and food.
Honestly, my heart is broken right now because I will often complain that I don't have a good running car or make enough money to hardly get by, but this family REALLY needs love and support right now. This Christmas, I want to give them both something under the tree. They do receive food stamps, but it is not enough for a sixteen year old boy who loves to eat :) ANYTHING will help, and I want to make it a huge surprise when I bring over TONS of presents for this year... everything they need.. clothes, toys, food, and shampoo/conditioner/soap.
I know I just sponsored a fundraiser for the pug rescue, but please.. if you have any extra money, even 5 dollars which can even buy a sweatshirt at Walmart, please consider donating... I will take ALL the money and go to stores and get everything they need to make it a wonderful Christmas... Please make your donation to my paypal. My e-mail address is Laur1110@yahoo.com I thank you SO much in advance... and if you have no money (like me) ;) then just keep them in your prayers... Christmas is about giving which is what I LOVE to do, but there is always prayer as well. Thank you so much in advance..... and may God bless you all!!!!
**Donations are being accepted now until December 11th** THANK YOU!!!
