The best help I can offer you is this... Spend less time on the internet asking people to help you and get out there and get a job, start a business, anything (that is legal) to help get more cash flow in your life - Begging on the internet is not good for you, your kids or anyone - It show a lack of self love and desperation... How bout you go and use all that desperation and turn it into energy that can help you find stable work.
Good luck, I hope you can turn your life around and make a better life for ya kids.
surely there are social services in your area that can help. And for Christmas there was Toys for Tots and other like programs to help. You may not get an IPad, but you would get some things that would make your children happy. And even here in rural Ohio there are food distribution centers that provided holiday supplies for christmas dinner. Begging isn't the answer, do the work, you can find the help. There are many hungry people this year, the economy is in the tank, jobs are scarce, but there are social programs that help. If you can't find a job, go find the local offices of social services and ask them to help you. There are even free training programs that will educate you and put you in a job. Good luck
