Default Annual Christmas help thread

It is that time again. With the holidays rapidly approaching it is time to reach out to our brothers and sisters and ask for or offer help as needed.

I'm going to take it off of Txjourneyman's plate this year (as I understand this has received admin approval). For 2020, Greg can have it back, or it can rotate to someone else (volunteers may be needed).

It will work EXACTLY as it has in past years, it will work like this...

If you and your family are struggling this year, things are a little tight, regardless of reason, lay off, health issue, what ever! If you would like some help in the form of gift cards please send me a PM. I will be the only person that knows you asked for help other than the donor I line you up with.

If you and your family are feeling blessed this year and wish to share your blessing with a family in need please let me know by posting on this thread or sending a PM if you wish to remain anonymous. I'd prefer a PM either way as it should be easier for me to keep up with.

I will match up families in need with families willing to help out.

I WILL NOT HANDLE ANY FUNDS OR GIFT CARDS! I AM STRICTLY AN INTERMEDIARY!!!!

I will get the address of the family in need to the donor by way of PM. The donor will then mail a gift card in whatever amount they like to the recipient family.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Greg has done a remarkable job with this in the past, hopefully he doesn't fire me. From last years thread- I (Greg) wish I could share some of the PMs I have received over the past couple of years from recipients expressing their gratitude. It truly makes a difference.

To those who do think they need help. Don't be ashamed to ask. Everyone needs help at some time or another. If we can make your kid's Christmas a little better we want the chance to do so.

Please, this is for TBH families only. We have had requests to help non-members in the past but this is really meant to help our extended bowhunting family!

Also, in the past we usually have more donors than families asking for help, so most families get more than one donor family. Some donors stay on my list until the last minute in case there is a late request for help.

I will do my best to make sure everyone that asks gets some help and everyone that offers gets a chance to share.

It would be nice if we can have this wrapped up mid-December, lets say 18 December, a week prior to Christmas, so the cards are delivered and/or special gifts bought with the card(s).

I have a huge pile of toys and clothes for a little girl about 2 years old. I can check sizes for sure but we've been cleaning out my daughters stuff for a garage sale. If you come across a family with a 2ish year old girl that wouldn't mind some gently used stuff I'd be glad to load them up.

I've received many offers to help, but nobody requesting help.

As a reminder

1. Send me a PM, that will be my tracking mechanism.

2. Don't ask for my address to send a card to, I'll supply you with the contact of the family that needs help- I WILL NOT HANDLE ANY FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS.

3. Re-read 1 and 2.

My wife says I need help but it’s a not the kind of help this thread is offering.

Maybe there’s some folks that have a neighbor, friend, or church members that could use some help?

Thanks StrayDog. One of the rules that has always been, and will remain in place- "Please, this is for TBH families only. We have had requests to help non-members in the past but this is really meant to help our extended bowhunting family!"

Have one family that has fallen on hard times, many more have offered to help. Guys and gals, don't be afraid to ask for assistance if you have been kicked in the teeth, or as-in Arkansas- tooth.

I'll be sending out some PMs this weekend, have two family's that reached out for some help.

One family has asked for prayers for the contributors as well as the situation they are currently facing. Sorry I can't be more specific, he will know who you are lifting. Sorry it's cryptic, I'm not much for words.

Hopefully it’s the economy doing so great that there’s not a lot of family’s to help and not people afraid to ask for help. TBH is full of amazing people that would love to help (I KNOW!) if you are down on hard times don’t be afraid to ask for help. A lot of us including myself would love to help out.

If we have a surplus of people wanting to help, what would you think of helping families with a connection to a member, or doubling up on the requests we do have? I figure we all know someone who needs help. Just spitballin’ here.
