Family Struck by Holiday Tragedies

Cayden is 7 years old.  When he was 2, his mother was tragically killed by a drunk driver on Halloween.

 Since his father has never been in the picture and does not contribute financially to his care, his grandmother, Julie has been raising him on her own for the last 5 years.  (Cayden’s grandfather, Mike, died of a heart attack on July 5, 2010.)

Julie passed away unexpectedly on November 24, just after Thanksgiving.  

Cayden will now be living with his aunt and uncle and his 6 cousins.  Their home is too small to accommodate 7 children. 

We are asking for help to get them enough money for a down payment on a larger home, so Cayden and his cousins can all be comfortable under the same roof and Cayden can have a permanent place to call home.

With all his family passing away on or within a day of major holidays, this family is less than motivated to celebrate Christmas this year.  Julie loved Christmas and would spoil her grandchildren and talk about the miracle of Christmas and the magic of Santa.  She actually recorded a message for Cayden telling him if something happened to her to always believe that she and Santa are with him always.  

This family needs a Christmas miracle.  Cayden needs to see his grandma was right and Santa still exists.  Please help us give this family the magic they deserve.

Julie has 7 grandchildren. In addition to Christmas, 2 of her babies have birthdays in 2 weeks. We are working hard to help all the kids get through this tough time. Brianna is still being supermom, even though she is still grieving her sister and now her mom. In an effort to save her the stress of holiday shopping, we are putting together a size list for all the kids and some ideas for things they may need. If anyone would like to pick a kid to be Santa for, please let me know. They range in age from 14 years to 10 months. Also, if anyone can sponsor a Christmas dinner so Brianna can have one day to relax, it would be great. Thank you so much for your help!
