Person selling Christmas Bureau Cards

This is so wrong in my opinion. I came across this rude lady online selling a gift card from Christmas Bureau.

Meanwhile myself and my kids never got any help because there was a mistake about our home – we rent not own and it was documented incorrectly.

Some of us are struggling and could use these cards for formula and diapers and basics.

    So, are you hoping someone private messages you and offers to buy your Christmas for you?

  2. I love how someone already somehow made this negative.

    That sux I’ve seen it too. It’s ridiculous.

    Selling those cards takes away from people who really needed the help

  3. How do the gift cards work? Are they pre-paid visa gift cards or store specific? If they’re store specific maybe a family member helped her out and already got things for her from that store and she could use the cash more than a double up from that store.

    Just my 0.02. Not condoning scamming the Christmas bureau 😛 but there’s 2 sides to every story

    • How does the Christmas bureau work? Do they assess financial need by looking at financial records or is it an honour system where they trust if you don’t need you won’t ask for it?

      If she legitimately is so stricken she needs the Christmas bureau who are we to say how she should or shouldn’t spend the money? If it’s grocery gift cards, may be she picked up enough at the food bank (or is being treated to dinner!) And would like the cash for utilities or to help with rent.

      Why do we get to dictate HOW they use their aide? If someone isn’t using it “””right””” suddenly they don’t deserve it. Why do we condemn people in poverty for trying to enjoy a MODICUM of life? Why must they he absolutely miserable to deserve our help? And why do we assume they have nefarious actions? She’s trying to get cash for drugs or something YOUVE deemed frivolous like *gasp* her nails! How dare she feel good about herself?? Don’t poor people know they should look and feel like shit if they expect our sympathy???

      Where’s your Christmas spirit guys? Maybe she’s not the Grinch you all want so desperately for her to be.

  9. The stickerin the gift card that says the amount on the front is placed on them by the volunteers at the Christmas bureau so they know how much each family is being given

  11. It’s sad because if she doesn’t need the money for groceries, we all know where the money is going.

    Maybe she has bills to pay? You dont know her situation

  13. Does it really matter. It’s her stuff not yours. Maybe she has bills to pay , emergency or something came up and she has to sell. Don’t be so quick to judge.

    Thought crosses my mind… Isn’t it ‘off’ somehow that someone/anyone would be trying to sell such a thing. Maybe I’m missing/don’t understand how the CB works. But to me am thinking WHY would someone be doing that – they’re likely in possession of it for a reason specific to their needing such??! No? or Yes?
    I can only pick up from this, that perhaps such a gift-card isn’t good enough for them, meaning it isn’t good enough to support one form or another of their bad vices, eg.; cigarettes, alcohol… ? and they’ve opted to try and sell it to gain cash money in favor of supporting their addition(s). That’s what I get out of the picture. And if I’m right … it just goes to show and support the notion of too many people whining/crying for handouts for all the wrong reasons. Case closed.

  17. Um the toys are not delivered until the weekend of the 16th and 17th. The gift cards are mailed out on the same weekend. But if you are 100% sure and have her contact info and name report it to the Bureau.
