Desperate for help

To whom it may concern:
I’m not exactly sure how you can help but here’s the story.
I lost my job during the summer and went about 4.5 months without one. (No one wanted to hire a pregnant woman).
So fast forward to now, I have 4 weeks left until the baby is due and they severely cut my hours due to my health. (I’ve been in the hospital at least 4-5 times this month).
I’m still so behind on bills that I’m even considering letting my stuff for my families Christmas layaway lapse. I have a 2.5 year old as well. I feel like no matter how much I’ve been working I just can’t seem to catch up. Any advice or help would be appreciated.
Thank you

Nephew has never had a Christmas

I have a son and a nephew. My nephew has never had a Christmas. I have had lots of medical issues in the last 4 months. I could really use the help this year. I would like to have a Christmas that my nephew and my son could remember.
I have NEVER asked for any kind of help. But this year I could use the help. I barely make ends meet. I would be so grateful to get the help. PLEASE consider me for help.
I would love to hear from someone to make my son and my nephew happy this year. My nephew has been through a lot in his life and never had a Christmas ever in his life. I know I probably won’t get chosen, but I am really hoping this year. It took me a whole week to send this because I feel like I will be turned down. So please if I can get help, call me. If not that’s okay too. I will figure something out.
Thank you

Lost all belongings in house fire, in great need of help

I am writing this letter in hopes of being able to do something to help my co-worker. Her and her family lost their home to a house fire. Her and her husband also has a daughter and 2 grandchildren that live with them. A grandson, who is 12 and a granddaughter who is 10. They lost everything including Christmas presents that had already been purchased.
My co-worker is a great person who always tries to help anyone and now she and her family could use some help. I’m sorry I don’t have more information like clothing sizes and things, but as I said this just happened and I wanted to get this letter to you in hopes of it being published and being able to get them some help. I’m sure anything would be appreciated!
Thank you for taking the time to read this. God Bless!
