Little Girl Writes Heartbreaking Letter To Santa Asking For Food and A Home For Christmas

A 7-year-old girl sent a heartbreaking letter to Santa asking him for food and a home for this Christmas.

The little girl, who has not been named, dropped the tear-jerking letter in a special Santa mailbox inside the L6 community center in Liverpool.

The Santa box was left out for children who visit the center to write their Christmas wishes.

The hand-written letter reads, “Dear Father Christmas, can you help.

“Can we have a home for Christmas. Mam wants us to be all together can you give us some food and can I have just a nice doll for Christmas. Thank you.”

The touching note moved Labour councilor Gerald Woodhouse to post a picture of the girl’s letter on his twitter account.

He wrote, “Last week @L6Centre we started getting down Xmas decorations we placed The Santa post box in the cafe until grotto is set up,  Today I went into to @L6Centre to sort food parcels for residents while passing post box I looked in it !! Just read a 7 yrs old letter Vote Labour.”

The tweet garnered lots of sympathetic responses to the child’s letter, with some commenters offering to donate their time and money to the non-profit.

“The sweet innocence of a child believing that Santa can help. Heartbreaking. Why did we let it get this far?” One commenter tweeted.

Another commenter added, “This has broken my heart. I’m donating my time and stock to paint the kids faces at the L6 Christmas party… Can’t bear this.”

Speaking to Sky News, Woodhouse said, “It was so upsetting to read. I know the children, and it’s not right that a 7-year-old child is worrying about Christmas in November. There is no one around to support these children.”

Reports say that the children currently live with a relative. Woodhouse said the community center is trying to help the family and get them in a hotel for Christmas Day.

All children deserve to enjoy Christmas surrounded by happy families, its so heartbreaking that a child so young has so much to worry about.
