I am currently trying to find a way to raise money to give my children the christmas they deserve. I heard about this site through a friend and i have had no idea anything like this even exsisted. Here's a little bit of background for those who care to read: I am a newly single mother of 2 amazing boys who are of the ages 4 and 6. My husband passed away in October of 2012 on my oldest sons birthday. My husband had been battling some issues for a few months which eventually led to his death. I found my husband to be passed away in our bathroom. And to be completely honest my children found him first. Before this event i was a nurse making decent money. I was the sole provider for the four of us and always tried to make sure my family had everything they needed. It has been a year since our tragedy and it still feels as if time stands still. I am currently unemployed due to severe post traumatic stress and depression. It is getting better and i have been applying for multiple jobs, none of which have worked out. It is a lot harder to find a job now being a single mother and a nurse. Needing that day shift position since there is no one to watch the kids. Its like a needle in a haystack. I guess i felt like explaining because i am not usually one to take things from others. This i suppose is my first attempt at swallowing my pride. My children at 4 and 6 have endured more emotional pain than most little kids i know anyway. I want to give them the world. Unfortunately i can't. I would at least like to give them a good christmas seeing as last christmas was the first without their dad and i was far too depressed to care much about the holdiay. I just want things to be different for them this year. So any donations to get them some toys that they would be very grateful to have would be amazing. I appreciate anyone who took time to read this. Thank you.
