I just got really sad at thinking about not being able to see the joy on there faces when they open there gift. That to me is the best gift ever. Wishing you and your loved one a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year......... Kellie Warner

Hi Ellen, Amy, Andy, Tony or to whomever may be reading this.
I really wish and hope that I am the one who gets this christmas miracle for my son I really do need it but I was told by a close family friend that ”if it's meant to happen then you will make our christmas miracle come true and if not well then you gave it your best” she said. So now all I can do is pray A LOT and hope that this miracle comes true. Ellen I know you have a very BIG decision but please consider me please you know the other day it hurt me so much because my son is sick and I have no money what so ever to buy him medicine please ellen what ever you can do to help me I would really really,appreciate it ill even go clean your house or do whatever you say to make it up to you somehow but please im begging from the bottom of my heart and with my sons heart and daughters also please. Ellen please please help me I looked into the little money we still had from when I got layed off work and I will not have enough for rent, my car payment, electric,my car insurance I have nothing left which means that I really really need nelp ellen please like I mentioned ill do whatever you want but please help me and my little ones to keep ths roof we're living under please please I don't have any twitter facebook or anything to be able to have you read this I know many many people are thinking bad stuff about the way Im putting myself out there like this but I can't help it im desperately needing this im not even sure how im gonna be able to buy the next pack of diapers for my daughter please please help me. I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH ELLEN. Warmest regards to you and your family Ellen and your staff. Love you very much Maria.
The bottom is the reason why I really need the help.
How are you how are things going? I hope very good for you and your loved ones.I want to let you know that you are the most amazing person. I LOVE the way you help those in need or those that make a difference. You have such a great impact on people you make me smile when im feeling down and you give me hope that things will be okay if not now soon. You're the BEST ELLEN. Like many people Ellen im in need of a christmas miracle.These months have been so so difficult. I got layed off work right around 4 months of me being pregnant which was very very stressful. We managed to save of a little bit of money from the time that I was employed but that money is coming to an end fast because we have bill after bill after bill that needs to get paid and that's where all the money has gone to. Which is the main reason why we need a christmas miracle. My son has this condition called schizenphelly which is not common but it means that he is missing a huge chunk in his brain which is filled with fluids. With his condition it challenges him with his hand and leg he's very weak with both on his right side. He notices that all the kids around him use both hands or can jump higher which gets me sad and I know I should be strong for him but at times I just want to sit in the corner and cry. Im not sure how to even explain this to my son. To let him know that Santa will not be making it to our house this year and how he will not be getting a bike (which I was going to work my hardest to teach him how to use his right leg to pedal), his nerf guns, his bigger bed, or clothes. If our little baby girl was bigger it would be that much difficult. She's a baby but if she could ask for anything im sure it would be crib. I would have loved to be the lucky winner that won the lottery to give all my family something this christmas unfortunately that did not happen which is why now more then ever I need help to not let my little man down this christmas. I dont want to have to see him sad because Santa did not make it for christmas. Please Ellen. I know I sound desperate but I really really need help to make christmas good for my little boy. Ellen all of our christmas wishes are truly coming from the bottom of our hearts. Someone will be a very very happy person when you help one of the many make a christmas miracle. We all LOVE YOU OH SO VERY VERY MUCH. Send me an email cause I have no phone anymore because I can not afford it anymore if you decide to help us Ellen please.Enjoy the holidays with your family.

Love you ALWAYS

The bottom is the reason why I really need the help.
How are you how are things going? I hope very good for you and your loved ones.I want to let you know that you are the most amazing person. I LOVE the way you help those in need or those that make a difference. You have such a great impact on people you make me smile when im feeling down and you give me hope that things will be okay if not now soon. You're the BEST ELLEN. Like many people Ellen im in need of a christmas miracle.These months have been so so difficult. I got layed off work right around 4 months of me being pregnant which was very very stressful. We managed to save of a little bit of money from the time that I was employed but that money is coming to an end fast because we have bill after bill after bill that needs to get paid and that's where all the money has gone to. Which is the main reason why we need a christmas miracle. My son has this condition called schizenphelly which is not common but it means that he is missing a huge chunk in his brain which is filled with fluids. With his condition it challenges him with his hand and leg he's very weak with both on his right side. He notices that all the kids around him use both hands or can jump higher which gets me sad and I know I should be strong for him but at times I just want to sit in the corner and cry. Im not sure how to even explain this to my son. To let him know that Santa will not be making it to our house this year and how he will not be getting a bike (which I was going to work my hardest to teach him how to use his right leg to pedal), his nerf guns, his bigger bed, or clothes. If our little baby girl was bigger it would be that much difficult. She's a baby but if she could ask for anything im sure it would be crib. I would have loved to be the lucky winner that won the lottery to give all my family something this christmas unfortunately that did not happen which is why now more then ever I need help to not let my little man down this christmas. I dont want to have to see him sad because Santa did not make it for christmas. Please Ellen. I know I sound desperate but I really really need help to make christmas good for my little boy. Ellen all of our christmas wishes are truly coming from the bottom of our hearts. Someone will be a very very happy person when you help one of the many make a christmas miracle. We all LOVE YOU OH SO VERY VERY MUCH. Send me an email cause I have no phone anymore because I can not afford it anymore if you decide to help us Ellen please.Enjoy the holidays with your family.

Love you ALWAYS
Maria

Hi Ellen, Amy, Andy, Tony or to whomever may be reading this.
I really wish and hope that I am the one who gets this christmas miracle for my son I really do need it but I was told by a close family friend that ”if it's meant to happen then you will make our christmas miracle come true and if not well then you gave it your best” she said. So now all I can do is pray A LOT and hope that this miracle comes true. Ellen I know you have a very BIG decision but please consider me please you know the other day it hurt me so much because my son is sick and I have no money what so ever to buy him medicine please ellen what ever you can do to help me I would really really,appreciate it ill even go clean your house or do whatever you say to make it up to you somehow but please im begging from the bottom of my heart and with my sons heart and daughters also please.

Dear Ellen and crew,
I realize this is very last minute. I just wanted to try realistic resources first, only to be able to say my little family slipped through the cracks due to red tape. In 2002, the small town of Roseau found itself underwater as the levy broke. My late husband and I lost everything. (Not unlike many Sandy survivors) That is where my story starts. We never bounced back financially. I became disabled and a few years later after stuggling with his own demons, my late husband succombed to multiple organ failure. That year I lost my Gran, my husband, and 18 months after her 60th birthday...my mom. This was all by the end of '08. Upon my mom's death, my brother kicked me out of his home since I was no longer needed there to help care for her. I found myself bouncing from place to place to find a meger existance. At least I knew my little one's father. It was with him I received the greatest gift...my little one; and yet it is a struggle.

A am a single mother. His dad chose not to be around. This is sad. Brighton, my little one...Brightens everyone's day! And yet he has his struggles. He has a mild form of C.H.A.R.G.E. Syndrome. We started seeing speciallists when he was 3 months old. We go every few months to review his case or check something new. We make the trip all the way to the University of Minnesota Minneapolis Amplatz Childrens' Hospital/Clinic (7 1/2 hours away). This must be done on a very tight budget as I have a set disability allowance, I don't get state assistance, I don't get child support because his biologic is ill, I don't get SNAP assistance, I have student loan payment that MUST be repaid now (no more deferments) of $189 and $160......and I am in seriously desperate need of major dental work. But my little gut...his first real Christmas that he is starting to make real memories wont have any real gifts from his own MOMMY! I know what Grandma and Poppa got him...2 books and a little baby Bible...That's it...I am not ashamed. I needed to pay bills and put food on the table now that he is eating real table food. ButI can't get him the developmental toys he really should have. The therapists from the local school district come once a month with different toys and suggest ways to play. But without the money to get the stuff???

He has apnea and gurt, I worry about his sleep and reflux so I don't sleep well. Niether of us have had a good night sleep since he turned 4 months and rolled over. He needs special bedding that I can't afford and I am still in the bed that my late husband DIED IN!!!

Because I am so very broke, I haven't been able to pay back the $60... my dearest friend and her family lent me to check my baggage home from vacationing in Connecticut to see them. I was out there scouting places to live. I hope and pray come summer time (June or July) I will have money enough to move out there. It will be a considerable distance from our family, but very close to Yale-New Haven for speciallist treatments for Brighton.

So as far as getting gifts, I wish I could get for my sister's 3 kids (she too is a single mom who needs a car baddly); I want to get for my best friend and her family (husband and 2 kids); I would like to get for my late husband's mother a Hannukah gift; my brother is working so very hard for his family (he is living here with Dad while his family is back in Kansas), they all deserve something nice; then there is my dad and stepmom of course...something nice for all that they have done for Brighton and I...And even though he hasn't done a thing for Brighton or me for the last year and a half...Brighton's biological...I am still in love with him even though I know he couldn't care less.

So, instead of not sleeping because I'm worried how I'm gonna pay this bill or that bill or how I'm gonna get my oil changed or gas for a routine pediatric trip 60 miles away, ... or just small little simple meaningful gifts...I would love to be able to fall asleep because I know something went right today or cry as I fall asleep because somebody blessed me in such a way!!!!

Thank you for your time and reading this!!! Blessings and be blessed! Pass it on and word of C.H.A.R.G.E. Syndrome (1 in 10000 are born with it)... Have a very, very, very Merry Christmas and Happy Hollidays...Happy New Year!!!

Thank You with sincere and warmest regards,
DeAnna L. Stoll
P.S. Sorry for going on and on!
