I will be collecting for a hamper and shopping for this family as well. Please pm if you want to help with gifts or food items. Let's make some little faces light up this Christmas! Boys are 11 and 9 and two girls aged 6. I would also like a pampering package for Mom if anyone has something along those lines. :)

I am unable to help but I wish I could!!! But maybe a little more information about the situation will help as there is no discussion maybe it was taken off? Good luck and I hope this family will have a great Christmas.

The start of this was a classified ad which has now been taken off. This Mom is too embarrassed to ask for help and had posted an ad selling her Christmas tree and decorations in order to buy gifts and a dinner for her 4 children. I have emailed her and told her she doesn't need to do that, as I will help put together a hamper and gifts for the children. It will be so much nicer for them to wake to gifts under the tree!!

I will have some great girls' gifts thanks to Mark S and butterfly, Billythekid is generously donating a gift certificate for the whole family, Mittens has put together a nice package for Mom. I will shop for either food for a hamper or the boys' gifts...whichever is still needed. Anything will help, even stocking stuffers for the kids!

This is absolutely AMAZING!!!! I have been watching this wish and to see so many ebrandoners come together to help this family is awesome!!! It warms my heart as well and I can not imagine how this family is going to feel, a mother that went from wanting to sell her xmas tree and decorations so her children could have a Christmas, to not having to sell it and having probably the most rememberable Christmas ever for her and her children!!! Absolutely amazing, makes me smile and want to cry all at the same time!!!

I just checked my messages again and am tearing up. Thank you to everyone that is sending nice messages and/or wanting to help. Just wanted to point out that this Mom has no wishes posted, she only posted that classified ad trying to sell her tree so she could get presents for her children. I don't know her but feel like I do now through our emails and she has made my Christmas worthwhile already through her spirit.

You're welcome goosefabah...thank-you for meeting me. It is so generous of you to give so much of your time for people you have just met. Very heart warming to see the generosity of so many people pulling together to help out a family in need, and for people like you who gather it all up and get it to them.

That would be " E-BRANDON FAN#1" and when that person is ready I am sure it will get marked "Granted" in the meantime it isn't hurting anyone or anything , it is actually an inspiration to read it .  
Sorry "Sammy" but there is nothing stopping anyone on here from helping out whomever they want to help lots of people have helped with more then one wish :) :)

Update: Lee Anne and her family are putting together a Christmas dinner and a friend of weatherman harry potter has some great boys toys. I have a bit more shopping to do and then I will be ready to deliver the most amazing truck load of Christmas I have ever seen!! This wish has been more than granted, and I want to thank everyone involved for making this season my most memorable yet and one I know this family will remember forever.

I said it was my last comment but I lied, because this Mom has asked me to post her thank you letter on here. The pile of gifts and food were delivered this morning!!! Here is her letter:  
 
 
 
I would like to give thanks to the several ebrandoners that helped out with what will be my most rememberable christmas to date. Without all you angels, we wouldn't have the Christmas that were going to have, because of all your thoughtfulness it not only allowed me to give my children a Christmas but to also keep our tree.  
 
 
I am thankful for everything that my children and I have received. I had explained to my children that mom doesn't have alot and that is why Nice friends from ebrandon helped her out. So one year we can help someone else out. At first they said "Strangers are helping us have a Christmas" I said "No friends are helping" and explained how we can help others out sometime as well, they were so excited and appreciative. I'm so blessed to be able to even give my children lessons such as this and them seeing it first hand is the best lesson of all.  
 
 
I would like to give a special thanks to the 2 angels Ebrandon fan #1 and goosefahbah,, for placing the wish for my family and putting alot of work into collecting and updating the wish. You both deserve more then I can give in return, I am so overwhelmed with there generosity and kind hearts! I can not thank you all enough.  
 
 
 
 
Sincerely, Anonymous & Family  
 
 
Have a Very Merry Christmas!!! From our Family to yours

Anyone else read the section today about the submissions for the Anon Angel? No doubt this post will somehow get booted off but I just want to say what I feel.  
As someone who has contributed to more one the lastest Christmas Wishes, just because I have to say that one on the Angle submissions saddened me, Many people contributed to a certain wish on here and I was saddend to see this person wants and did single out 2 people for everything . This was a community pulling together and fulfilling a Christmas Wish. The thank you on the wish site was wonderful but when I read the Angel submission singling out 2 people I was a little deeply saddened. Should I post this?? I am not sure but I am.

I feel that the person who received this gift can not return the favor to everyone that helped. It seems like the family was very grateful for everyone. But everyone must remember Because of the angels that started this, it would not have happened and it would not have turned out to be such a wonderful Christmas for this family. So Im not sure what your upset about. I dont think she singled out 2 people only, I think that's all she can do to repay the ones that started the entire thread. In the submission the family thanked everyone and called everyone there ebrandon friends etc. So Im curious as to why you feel this way.
