One recurring theme I get from the emails I receive from low income families is that they are ashamed to ask for help. My advice to people feeling embarrassed is to swallow your pride and ask for help so you can get yourself out of poverty. From time to time we all fall on hard times and it catches us when we least expect it, some people plan for contingencies other people don't, we need to learn from our mistakes. If you need help then ask for it, inquire about as many financial assistance programs as you can, be relentless in your pursuit to give yourself and your family a better Christmas, use this experience to get stronger so you can plan for the future more adequately. Good Luck.
