Asking for help to provide Christmas for our children

To start off with I'm a veteran of the United States Army and to be honest it's so hard asking for help. I am a father, a husband, and a full time student in college. my wife and I are both going to college, me for welding on a retrain program through the employment office an my wife in cosmetology. We both have leas then six months left till we graduate. We are both trying to insure that we will be able to provide our children with a stable future. Work in our town is very scarce. Recently the army depot laid off 2800 people and that is where most of our towns work comes from.

This whole situation started 18 months ago when our twin daughters were born 7 weeks early and were in the NICU for the better part of 4 weeks. I then became unemployed due to the circumstances of the economy.  I have been trying to support my wife, 6 daughters and 2 sons on $457.00 a week from unemployment.  I am trying to keep a roof over my families head, pay our medical expenses and plus provide a Christmas for my family. Also part of our medical expense is where 1 of our twins has to receive therapy due to her development problems and if I don't soon figure out something we may even lose her care.

So if you can find it in your heart please help this Veteran and mother of 8 during this very trying time. God Bless Everyone !!!
