I am 15 and I am the oldest of 5 sisters. I would love to give my Mom and my younger sisters the best Christmas ever and not have my mom stressed out about not being able to buy us the gifts we wish for. My mom does not have a lot of money because she is disabled with Lupus and her illness has been getting worse. She tries her best to give us everything we want and need but she is in a lot of pain and always tired. She is a very good mom and does her best to support us, but I know it is a struggle for her. I just wish I could help provide the best Christmas for my family and know if I could get your help and other kind Portland families help I could give my family a memorable Christmas this year.
