****PLEASE HELP- NO XMAS FOR 3 KIDS!*************£ (Richmond)

I dont know where to begin but to say how ashamed and defeated I am to have to post this. I have no idea what else to do.

Two weeks ago my husband left our family unexpectedly. It has been a blindsided nightmare and I am trying to keep it together for our 2 boys who are 11 and 13 and our 2 year daughter.

I work nights and have volunteered for every extra available shifts but it is barely keeping us afloat and the realization hit that it is either Christmas or paying the rent and car payment. It is an obvious but heartbreaking choice/

As of today I have not and will not be able to purchase even 1 Christmas present for either of them. There will be no tree, decorations or anything for xmas morning. It blows my mind that this is happening and if i had expected it, I would have at least signed them up for some typpe of holiday assistance.

They are amazing boys, both make honor roll. One has mild disabilities and is the sweetest being alive. The youngest believes in Santa and the oldest knows the truth but has no idea of our financial situation.

I am desperate to find used or new toys and clothing for them this xmas. . I work nights but I am more than willing to work for them. I can clean, organize, do yard work, wrap gifts, etc.

Thank you so much for reading this long post and I would appreciate any help at all from the bottom of my heart!
