    Four months ago I was laid off and it's been really hard to find another job. The skill that I have is out of date and I'm spending money on retraining so I can start earning again. I am applying for as many jobs as I can however I doubt I'll get anything before Christmas. I don't want to disappoint my family this Christmas as they depend on me. I have six kids and two of them are under 4 years, I really want to give them a Christmas that they wont be disappointed with. If anyone can help me with money I would be grateful, if anyone can help with any sort of useful advice on how I can get financial assistance during Christmas I would be grateful. Please Please help me, I have nowhere else to turn to.

    Make a Wish foundation is really good if you want to make your child's Christmas really magical, they offer wishes to children of low income families and children who are ill. If you fall into one of these categories then it's definitely worth sending them an email and asking them for help.

    One of the best charities that you can contact during Christmas is the Salvation Army. This charity really excels during Christmas helping low income families and homeless people. It's important that you get in touch early so you can get first digs for food, presents, clothes and gifts and other items to make your Christmas memorable so you can put the past behind you.

    Another little known charity that really helps during Christmas is the Prison Fellowship Organization. I am not sure if this applies but I thought I'd mention it just in case it helps someone else. The Prison Fellowship Organization helps people who have a family member in prison. You can apply for financial assistance, help with food, help with gifts and help with clothes.

    I have this really great charity called Toys for Tots, if you're on a really low income or have experienced some sort of hardship you can request a toy for your child. It wont be the latest or greatest toy but they can offer you something that will help to make your child's Christmas a bit more better. You can also donate toys here if you've got some extra toys from last year.

    Have you tried asking your school for help. Every school has a child welfare officer or counselor and they have tonnes of information about where to get help from. They can point you in the right direction to get free gifts, free food and free clothes for Christmas. Good Luck.

    Try to make a list of all the local charities, churches and civic organizations in your local area and then systematically contact them one by one. Let them know that you're experiencing hardship and need financial assistance and help with Christmas, ask for free gifts, food, and clothes. Local Charities receive high volumes of donations running up to Christmas and if you ask early enough you might be top of the list. Hope this helps.

  9. This might sound like a really long shot but it has worked for lots of people. Try contacting your local TV station, radio station and newspaper and ask them to help you. Like before ask for food, clothes, gifts, Christmas trees, decorations and even free Turkey. If they make an appeal on behalf of low income people then you could have the best Christmas ever.
