Christmas Jar Story: ‘Wondering how I was going to pay bills’

Grand Island, New York:

My husband passed away in september 2006 leaving behind 3 children. In august 2009 while on vacation with my ten year old I fell and broke my ankle. I was out of work until november and wondering how I was going to pay bills and have money for Christmas. When a miracle christmas jar appeared in front of the house with $100 in it and a book called Christmas Jars. I will be forever greatful to the person that gave it to us. I will carry on the tradition each year.
