My daughter and her husband have many children to care for. He has 4, she has 1 and they share a child. My son in law served in Iraq 4 times and now has 60% medical disability (lose of hearing)from the VA. He has been in college for several years studying carpentry. My daughter is a stay at home mom and also a full time college student studying to be a Substance Abuse Counselor. They just got custody of 2 of his children, one of which is disabled. She (McKenna) is 9 years old. When she was 8 months old a baby sitter through her to the floor causing brain damage and physical damage. McKenna and her brother's biological monther is in jail. She is a convicted felon. The court finally gave my son in law exclusive custody of these 2 children. So they have 4 children living with them now in a small townhouse. They are hoping to buy a house but do not have the down payment to purchase a home. The many years of attorney fees and court costs have hurt their credit because some bills had to go unpaid. If there is anything thing you can do to help them, it would be appreciated more then I could ever express.

I do watch your show and admire you for helping so many. The world would be a better place if more people blessed with so much would help those less fortunate.

Thank you for the opportunity to tell my daughter and her husband's story.

Hi,

I watched the show yesterday with the Weems (?) Elementary School for the Shutterfly giveaway. Immediately after the show the news came on of three foster children being abused for several years by John and Carolyn Jackson of Mount Holly, NJ, who are accused of starving them, breaking their bones, and having their biological children cruelly discipline them.

Over the past couple of years I've come to know a wonderful, selfless young woman who not only adopted foster children herself but started an organization called One Simple Wish here in New Jersey. She was featured on NBC Nightly News Making a Difference.

She contacted me recently asking me if I had any connections to anyone where they could get an RV as she is now traveling all over the country to spread the word about foster children.

I couldn't just ignore this yesterday so I'm reaching out to see if there's anything Shutterfly/Ellen DeGeneres could possibly do.

Thank you, Kathryn Arons

Hello Ellen my name is McKayla and i have an aunt who is in desperate need of a house.She has a blind son named Jimmy.He cant walk up stairs and he has a dog for a companion.My Aunt Pat has had a lot of trouble trying to find a house.She has to be out of her house by the beginning of May.Jimmy is my cousin and when my Uncle Mike passed away he found his body and it tromotized him.After that he started having grandma seasures and his doctor told my Aunt Pat to get him out of the house immediately.He has lost 2 fathers and his mother is handicapped herself.Jimmy is mentally challanged,postromatic stress dissorder, celable pausey,and had a shunt recently put in his brain.My Aunt Pat and Jimmy are on a lot of medicine that the state wont pay for.Aunt Pat doesnt get food stamps and she has to use a lot of her money.She has to choose between food and her medicine most times.She watches a lot of extreme home makeover and she wishes they would do that for her.she is also in need of a reliable SUV to get herself and Jimmy back and forth to the doctor. she puts a lot of money into her car because it is falling apart. she doesnt want to be on TV because she is a strong country person with a lot of pride and has trouble asking for help from other people.She is in need of furniture because it is falling apart. she has slept on her couch and different chairs for 6 years.her house has gone into foreclosure since my Uncle Mike passed.because of looking for houses she has spent a lot of money on gas. IT WOULD BE A BIG HELP IF YOU COULD DO THIS FOR MY AUNT PAT. WE WILL BE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL.
P.S. my aunt pat has helped a lot of homeless people and now its her turn to get some help.

Let me start by saying that i live your show and i think that you are awsome! I only wish that i could be half the person that you are.
I would like to let you know about my partner. She has left her job to care for her mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimers about 7 years ago. The disease has progressed to the last stages and each day gets a little more difficult. It has come to the point that we basically do all of her daily activites for her such as her grooming, feeding her and so forth. We are very happy to take on these tasks but in the process have found that taking care of ourselves and our things have become almost impossible. The home that we live in is on the property with her parents and has started to decline and the barn where we keep our 2 horses has fallen to ill repair. Ellen, she says every day that if someone could juat get a message to you that she knows that you could help...not to mention that she would LOVE to meet you! I am not asking for myself but if there is any way that you could help her financially so that she could do some repairs on her home, barn and veh i know she would greatly appreciate it...i know i would! She is an awsome person who has given so much of herself and dedicated herself to making sure that her mother and father are very well taken care of and that all their needs are met on a daily basis. Thank you for all that you do helping people in need and being the wonderful person that you are in every way! Hoping to see you soon!

Sincerly,
Kathy Kyte

Hello Ellen

Let me just say I watch your show everyday and enjoy every minute of it. I watch how you help deserving people in times of need. I also hear you say at the end of your show be kind to one another. Well you know I take that to heart when and it sticks with me everyday. I been wanting to write to you ever since I was turned down for help from an agency that is in the business of helping people. I am not really homeless because I am now living with my father, My home is not livable at the moment. Here is an agency that has not been so kind, at least to me. I was directed to this agency to get help with renovations to my home in hopes that I would get help. The receptionist was very nice and understanding and made me to believe that I may be getting some help I was told to submit some information about what all needed to be done. I haven't heard back from anyone so I decided to give them a call. I was told that the coordinator would be paying me a visit to assess the work that needed done. After he arrived and walked through our home he told my husband and I that the home was too big for three people and he don't think the agency would be able to help us. He went on to explain that the agency has build homes in one weeks time for other families that was in the same situation we are in. We were asked to give up our home because our family is not big enough to occupy the home and then turned down for the assistance. Now I am not bitter by no means because I believe someday my family will our home will be livable. I was wondering even though I was not given kindness from this agency can you help this agency help others whom are without a place to live. The agency is Hosanna Industries 109 Rinhard Ln, Rochester, PA 15074-260...7, I truly believe that this agency is about helping people just was not able to help me at this time. Thank you in advance for any and all help provided.
Peace And Blessing
Sharon Reed
