Fund raising to try to give my kids a good Christmas.

My husband left in April, and the single parenting role is difficult at the best of times, let alone at Christmas.

We have been trying to save to buy food and presents for Christmas but any saved money ends up being used for clothing and food each week, and lately on vet bills for our dog. We have been busy making homemade gifts, and searching online for ideas for giving, and for cheap food ideas for a fun Christmas Day.

My kids are really generous and have offered to put in their money box coins, and as lovely as that is I want to provide Christmas for them.

My children deserve a good Christmas that i just can't afford to give them on my own. I want to show them that just because our family changed it doesn't mean it can't be great.

I have picked up odd jobs, and bought small gifts from op shops, and I didn't want to have to ask anyone as I am a very proud person, but as a parent I guess you do what you have to for your kids.

Any donation would be fantastic, and I wish all those who are struggling this year the very best.
