Emily my niece is 4 years old, my middle nephew Austin is 3 and their baby brother is going to be a year old just two days after Christmas. All Emi-bug has talked about since she saw it in stores is a Radio Flyer wagon so she can "pull the baby" in it. She loves going for walks in the neighborhood but the stroller they have just isnt very easy to push and my sister struggles with it. Austin has been looking at a tricycle he saw in a commercial and even circled it in the wal mart paper we left on the table with his markers.
My sister works barely 20 hours a week minimum wage, and their dad is struggling to find work as his company had to let him and many more go. I have my own bills and can't afford to get them much. I'm so worried that much like when I was a child if its not there Christmas morning those kids are going to think either Santa doesn't care or they were bad. I'm selling some of my old things to a pawn shop to help but the wagon in $150 and the tricycle is $45.
All I want is to see their faces Christmas morning happy. My brother and me both told all our friends not to get us anything to give us money to help with this. We are trying so hard, but we just can't make it happen alone.
We are aiming for $300 because their birthdays are also very close. As I stated the babies is right after Christmas, Austin's is January and Emily's February.
