Hi my name is donovan russell the father of a wonderfull daughter Anistasia. I am enlisted in the united states marine corps. I recently moved me and my starting family across the country from florida to califonia. when we arived here we had barley anything to are name we were in a hollow apartment that ive tried my best to make into a home. though this and many unexpected complications like my daughter having failure to thive at 3 months of age causing her to be put on prescription formula and medications, has exhuasted my funds an credit. she has made a wonderful turnaround an is doing better then ever. though our luck remains to be down, and are budget is tighter then ever.
All i am wanting to do is make this holiday the best i can for my duaghter and wife. i am wanting to give them a holiday season they deserve. with no friends or family for 2500 miles and barley breaking even in the bank.
Im not wanting to come here and beg for pitty i work hard puting in around 60 hours each and every week doing whatever im asked, i just wish i could do more to make my family have a holiday they will never forget. and if im capible of rasing more money then i would like to spread the christmas joy on to fellow young military familys i know in my area.
this is the second time that i have wrote this post and just wish i could write it better but im lost for the words to use so the best way to sum it up is, Im just an avarge working amercian on the bottem of the food chain who is willing to do what ever it takes to make my family happy and others around me. so if your capible of eveing giving just a dollar it will be much appreciated. like ive said this isent for me, i will go without as long as they can have the best i can give them
