Sloan had a blast opening Christmas presents this year. But that's where it stopped. She could pretty much care less about what was in it after she opened it. She just loved opening all the presents. So much so that she now opens junk mail.
She loves loves loves her cousin Nicholas. She reads his book about when he went to Disney everyday so I'm pretty sure she thinks he is a celebrity.
One of my good friends (Sasha) recently posted on Facebook asking people to help her friend, Natasha. She recently left her husband (bad situation) and started over with her two kids. If you have thought about helping out this Christmas, please consider helping Natasha.
Her story is below (told from Sasha).
Natasha was married to a man that did not work and did a lot of drugs. In May, she took her two wonderful kids and left him, her home and most everything she owned. Her ex husband took just about everything for himself except a few bags of clothes and some toys. She has had to start over from scratch! She is doing such a good job on her own but could defiently use some help. She moved into a condemned trailer and spent the summer replacing the roof, fixing rotted out walls and painting to make a clean and safe home for her children. She works 6 ½ days a week. She servers at Leo’s Coney Island in the morning and cleans houses in the afternoons (Sundays is her only afternoon off). Natasha is an extremely hard worker but this Christmas not all that hard work has added up to enough cash to make Christmas special (or even possible) for her and her children.
I am so very proud of Natasha and all of the positive steps she has taken to make her and her kids life better that I want to make life a little bit easier for her, and with your help, WE can do that.
Meet Lilly: She is 6 years old and a little bossy (lol) She is in need of warm clothes, (size 10-12 on top and 10 bottoms), sheets and a comforter for her twin bed. She would like WII and DS games that are Girley. She is more tween than little girl.
Meet Brody: He is 9 years old, really funny and so so sweet. He needs warm clothes, (10 bottoms and 10-12 tops) and underpants. He wants 3D DS (price$170.00)
Meet Natasha!!!! My favorite person ever! She needs pots and pans, cups and sheets for a king size mattress (purple if possible) I would also like to help her get caught up on her bills= $746.50 is overdue. I know this is a lot to ask for but every little bit adds up to a lot!
This is a wonderful, loving and giving family that has all the possibility in the world for success but just needs a little extra help laying the foundation. Donations will be accepted in cash, check or gift certificates (Target, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Linens N Things etc).
Sasha will be collecting items to take back at Christmas. Please contact me if you would like to help: erinbritt (at) gmail (dot) com.
