Need help with Christmas for my children

mominneed2009 started this conversation
I have 2 children who are not going to get Christmas this year for the 2nd year in a row. My 12 year old daughter was in tears when I had to break the news to her yet again. My husband had been out of work since January 2009. He went back to the company that layed us both off this past June 2010. They layed him off again last week. I've only been employed for 9 months and it has been hard on us trying to keep up as it is. We are so far behind and I do not know how we are going to make it anymore with just my income.
The kids are disappointed but understand. I worry about my daughter who worries so much. As young as she is, she shouldn't have to worry. I tell her to let me carry the weight and for her to just be a kid.

I am asking for any help for this years christmas for my 3 daughters ages 2, 9, and 12 years. Normally I would not ask but due to the fact I was laid off of work earlier this year and have not been able to find work. I was hoping to be working by now but nothing has happen yet. christmas is fast approaching and I barely have enough money for the bills, food, and rent. My girls have been very understanding and appreciative this year and I would love to give them a Merry Christmas, my 9 year old daughter is very excited for christmas and is unaware of our lack of funds for christmas this year and it will hurt my heart to tell her. Please please please any help is appreciated. Thank you

 in response to Jessindallas...   My names is Katelyn. Im a mother of a wonderful two year old girl. I am my familys only source of income. I work maybe 20 hours a week. My husband was working until he was injured and is unable to go back to work for eight weeks. We lost over $200 weekly and I have no way to pay for necessities, let alone have any sort of christmas for my daughter. I have sold all my jewelry and electronics so we could have food and shelter but it would mean the world to me if someone could help her experience a little holiday joy.
