My friend James has been a single dad of 4 wonderful kids for 10 years. He was laid off from his job on 12/7/12. He was barely making it by before his lay off but he managed. Being That it is December and the holidays are upon us and he is in a real financial problem both with his bills and making sure the children have a halfway decent holiday. The kids actually asked for more clothing then they did toys which is a relief but still out of reach for him.
