I'm not going to lie. Its my family that is in need. We have hit some hardships and Christmas was very bleak this year. I've tried to get some help from people in my town, but all I've gotten is crude remarks and mean comments. Here's the deal. We have four children, ages ranging from 2 to 9. We moved to our current town one year ago and it was the worst decision we could have made. The town is very high in unemployment. My husband is a hardworking painter but since the winter hit, there has been no work. We are behind in all our bills. My kids don't know luxuries like cable or internet (I'm posting from a phone, fed by the neighbors wifi) For Christmas this year, they got to eat some ham. Two days ago our power was cut off with them wanting 450 to turn back on.(All is verifiable) so for christmas, we're sitting in the dark. I'm asking for any help you can provide. Money you can send directly to the power company, an old playstation 1 you no longer want you can send them or anything or any type of help. They received nothing for christmas and it pains my heart to explain rent and water was more important than them getting christmas presents. And top all that off, my four year olds birthday is in two days. I get to see more diSAppointment on his face. This is not a scam. I'm just desperate and at my wits end about what to do. This is just a last ditch effort to make it. Thank you to all who took the time to read this. My email is [email protected] Thank you and forgive me for trying.

sounds legit, but I mean a kid who doesn't know about the internet? That doesn't sound right. Nor does the email address.

People in my home town have said that its a scammer from way back.....If it is that's sad...if its not that is even sadder.
The husband that's a painter should prob hit up KFC and Wendy's ect....for work, you cant always pick your job in hard times.

Yeah it's really sad to read. Hopefully things will get better from this family if it is true. and if it's not true well then things can't really get any worse.

You really can't pick your job in hard times. You go with the flow
