About Me I am currently a full time (shy) student trying to make ends meet at 51 years of age. I was laid-off my job in 2008 after being there for 19 years. I have been self-employed since 2009 running an in-home daycare. Unfortunately, I currently only have two after-school children that I am caring for making only $118/weekly. I am currently attending a Technical College majoring in Early Childhood Education and have a 3.7 GPA in spite of the difficulty I am encountering. I have one more semester left (Internship) before I can begin caring for children full time again. I absolutely love watching children develop into beautiful butterflies. I don't have children of my own, but love helping others raise theirs. I must admit my life has been about school and caring for children for the past 5 years, but I have been truly enjoying both. Unfortunately, without children I don't have income coming in to maintain bills, food, etc. I believe that is a little something about me. Vera Pickett

Hi Ellen,
This has been an extremely rough year and winning all of the 12 day give away would be awesome! I will be watching and praying you will say my name.

Day 7 of 12 Days, Tyler Perry, Ken Jeong

Hi Ellen, I love all the wonderful things that you do for others. I realize this is the season for giving back, but you and Tyler Perry give back all year long which is so inspiring and beautiful to me. The holidays are great, but I will be grateful if I could just pay my bills. I entered your contest and the gifts are awesome, but all I really want for Christmas is to continue to keep a roof over my head.

Feeling a little blue...Vera
