please help a family in need at Christmas

I would like to apologise for my awfull punctuation first off and there only been one picture It won't let me add more than one so I just put one of all my kids together after my youngest daughter was born .I understand that this isn't anything compared to others problems on hear and I feel awfull having to ask for this help. to all thank you for taking the time to look at and read this. Firstly a bit about my self and family I'm Ben I'm 32 my partner is Kirsty she's 35 we have five beautiful children together and all is good. at least on the surface. I've started this go fund me as I don't know what else to do or where else to turn, I work a low paid job in a warehouse doing between 45 to 60 hours a week which normally is just enough to get us by, but this year my youngest daughter Jessica was just born November 4th unfortunately it wasn't a very smooth pregnancy and we had alsorts of troubles and ups and downs we was told she may be down syndrome we was told she would have alsorts of problems in the early days ( she was born a healthy baby with no problem s in the end thank god) she grew a lot quicker than what's normal causing my partner many problems through the pregnancy especially in the last months. Which ment she ended up bed ridden in hospital several times. Because of all this I had to take a fair amount of time off work in the last month's thinking I was going to be supported by my work place I didn't worry to much about money. But it turns out my main boss had a problem with it and I'm not going to be getting paid like I expected to be. where now in a huge panic about Christmas and have no clue how we are going to provide our kids with a Christmas at all I'm been paid just enough money to cover the rent and bills. This should be a happy time for us all but under the surface of it all for mee and my partner it's nothing but anxiety and worry about what's to come and what we are to tell the kids and many other things. I don't normally do charity I give to charitys but don't expect to be given to by them but this time round I'm grasping at straws. I beg and plead for some help so I can give my children a happy Christmas. Thank you  P.s I hate doing this and feel ashamed that I have to consider it but I'm lost and scared and panicked I don't want my kids to be miserable at this time of year thank you again for taking time to read this any and all help will be highly appreciated and massively helpful god bless you all.........Ben and Kirsty
