Christmas Help

I am a single mother of 3 boys living on a fixed income with no support from Dad. I recently moved to Georgia and don't know what to do to get help around here. My 2 year old has cerebral palsy among other health issues. Every bit of extra money I get goes right back out in trips to Atlanta to the neurologist. Right now I have one toy a piece for my boys and it's looking like that's all they will get. Please point me in the direction to get help for my babies. Thank you so much!

So sorry for your situation. Are you looking for medical help or Christmas help or both? Georgia has a healthcare program for children called PeachCare For Kids.
or check with your local DFACS.
and Toys For Tots is a program that helps collect toys for children's Christmas.
Nearly all churches collect toys to give disadvantaged children. Many business's sponsor Angel Tree's where people take a tag with the first name of a child and their age, buy a gift for them and donate it to the business to be given to the children on Christmas.

There is a lot of help out there for children on Christmas, but you have to put your request in soon, don't procrastinate till December or it will be too late.

C.J. is right about the Toys for Tots, however most of the places that do things like that are past the deadline for taking applications. As far as the Angel Trees go, the only way you get to have a name on them is if some organization puts them on. You can't just go to the store and ask them to put a name on it.


The trees put up for various charities. Not all of them are for little kids, some are specifically for teens and some are for senior citizens in nursing homes that have no family.

As far as churches doing gifts for kids the only one I have heard of is the Salvation Army and where I live, their deadline was a week ago. Other churches might do it for needy members of their congregation. There isn't anything wrong with kids only receiving one gift each, that is all any kid needs and that is all each one of my kids got and we were fairly comfortable.

Were you able to find help? If not, I know some places that will help even at the last minute. Just let me know.
Thanks, Amber

I have an 18 month old daughter resulting from a 2.5 year abusive relationship. I have taken the steps to leave and protect us from him (protective order) but have a long way from being back on my feet again.


I realizing I need help and can't do this alone.
we are staying with my parents but their age and income are not in a place to take care of us while I get counseling.
I am wanting to get back together and on my feet so I can be the woman my daughter can look up to and be proud of.
we were lucky to make it out alive and I feel blessed for that but everything I had is gone.
is there anyway you can help?
I have always believed in paying it forward and I am just hoping that all that good I put out will come back to help me in my time of need.

thank you
