I promised my son that I would take him to Six Flags on his birthday which comes on , August 8th. I lost my Job in February and I haven't gotten a job since and am relying only on public Assistance and it only cover the rent and little for the bills. How can I get good people to help me online atleast something that will make up for his birthday even to take him out anywhere for I can't afford a birthday party or to buy him new clothes or a skate board. Thank you

How old is your son? Explain the situation to him and have a fun filled FREE day with him. Maybe invite a friend or two over for dinner and a movie at home.... and give him an 'IOU' for the Six Flags trip when your finances are stable again.

It's kind of rude to ask people online for money. I'm a single mom of 3 kids, working my butt off, and barely surviving WITH welfare assistance, but you'll never see me asking for money or anything unless my kids were in danger of being homeless or starving... THEN I might consider it, but not for non essentials.

He'll be disappointed, but he'll get over it.
