Every year I buy a gift for a needy child. This is done through our local county. I get a little bit of information like age, sex, clothing sizes and interests.
I received the information today about a 14 year old female. Under the clothing/size category, she wrote: shirts XL, underpants size 6 and jeans size 13. Under the interests category, she wrote: nail polish, glitter, makeup, like kitties and puppies.
I can easily buy something for this girl. I figure I will place an Avon order because you can get lots of little sparkly makeup and nail polish fairly inexpensively. I will get her an outfit too with underpants.
However, it really breaks my heart for this poor girl to have to ask for underpants for Christmas. And from a stranger! Can they really not afford underpants? This just makes me so sad. I'm excited to buy this girl a nice Christmas gift.
Do you think its sad to ask for underpants for Christmas?
Sidenote: Y and his two brothers still get socks and underwear from their mom for Christmas. Even Lil Punk now gets socks and underwear. I only get socks from my MIL.
