Christmas 2017 For The Kids

PLEASE take a moment to read this. THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE LATEST TOY OR GADGET, it's about kids who truly have nothing, who need to know people in this world care. I was able to help the last few years because of generous donations. I really want to help again, but I CAN NOT DO IT ALONE!! PLEASE PLEASE HELP and take a moment to read: As most of you know I am a volunteer Guardian Ad Litem. For those that don't know what a Guardian Ad Litem is, it is a court appointed advocate to help the court make decisions for kids whom the court has custody of because they weren’t safe at home. A Guardian ad Litem tries to make sure the kids don't get lost within the system. We advocate for their needs and wants. I want to help these children have a great holiday season. There are so many of these children that do not get gifts on Christmas and if they do get something, it was not anything they wanted or needed. It was just something to be wrapped. I want to help change this, but I can't do it alone. There are so many children in and out of the system that need YOUR help. These children have all been dealt a really hard start in this world. All of them have been removed from their homes because they weren't safe. Being a child, you shouldn't have to have the added stress of wondering if you’re ever going to get to go home. These kids are bounced around until their parents either get their crap together or the state terminates their parental rights. Either way these kids have a lot to deal with. More than any kid should have to deal with. They didn't ask for this they were just born into it. Please help me give them a great Christmas... Every kid deserves that!!! I can't do this without your help. Any donation will help.... Thank you!!!

In addition, I was asked to help 12 middle school students who are homeless or semi-homeless. That makes 55 kids I am helping this year.  When the principal called, I said yes of course I will take care of them. I have no idea how I am going to accomplish that,but I know we can do this! 

Thank you.
