Dear Ellen

I know many families out there deserve the gift card. I just wanted to throw our name in the hat. We want to get a dog for our son, but right now we are unable to do so financially. Our apartments charge a hefty fee for pets and just to be honest we do not have the money now! It breaks my heart, but the other night when our son sat on Santa's lap, he asked for a dog to play with because he did not have a sister to play with. We adopted him, and he is the only child. I was just throwing our entry out there, and hoping something comes of it. Thanks for always having a great show, and making us laugh!

p.s.
we had 2 dogs earlier, but as I got Cancer, I lost my job and with my wife the only one working, money is tight. My son was really young and does not remember the fun he had with them, only pictures. When we lost our house we could not afford to pay the hefty deposit for each dog in the apartments. Thankfully we found a great home for them. Anyway I think a dog will help my son cure some of his loneliness. He was born a drug baby and he really thrives and starves for attention, and we feel a dog will help him a long way.

thanks again!

The 12 days entries seem to be messing up. There is no spot to enter. Anyway I wanted to know if there was anything you can do for my wife. I was diagnosed with Cancer in 2010. I had surgery to take out my Colon and Rectum as well. Anyway since I have recovered ( so far) my wife is the only one working. I stay at home to watch our son, and take him to/from school. Her job is demanding as a supervisor, and she never gets anything for herself. Money is tight as she has the only income. I drive a car, with the power windows not working, way over due on an oil change, needs more work. To make a long story short, we have not had any money to buy presents for ourselves in 4 or 5 years. Having a 6 year old son, adopted...he is all we do for. I was wondering if there was anything for my wife that could be done...She deserves the Moon, but I only have dirt to give :) She is a great woman, that deserves more than she has.

Thanks again

Great show and glad you had my favorite singer(Kelly Clarkson) on there. I wish her the best of luck for the holiday season.I also wish you and Portia the best as well. I am so glad I checked in today to see you again! I have to admit, Kelly being pregnant has bought out a wilder and a side we rarely see in her. I was laughing my butt off( and that is alot to laugh) . Anyway thanks again for being true and real as always.

Happy Holidays

I am confused. My wife is the only one working in our household. I do not work. I went through Cancer a couple years ago and have not been able to find work since. I went through radiation and chemo, and now live with a permanent bag. It seems that there is no help for us anywhere to pay some bills. We have a 6 year old son, and it takes everything we got to get him new clothes for school. My wife makes about $950(bring home) every 2 weeks. We have rent $705 Car payment $326 electric $130 cable/phone/internet $130 a load and some credit card payments adding up to $400 a month. That there is almost every penny she makes. Add in gas for 2 cars, food and other supplies ...we are slowly sinking in a hole. When I got Cancer, I lost my job, than we lost our house and have to move to an apartment. I have tried over and over to get a gob, even part time but nothing or no one seems to want to hire me. I know I CAN NOT do the same work I did before getting Cancer......but I can not afford to try and learn anything new...I am just hoping for some kind of advice! Thank you and keep up the good work.
