The heartfelt note detailed young Emmie’s one Christmas wish.
It reads: “To Santa, all I want for Christmas is some money for Mummy and Daddy. They struggle with bills and mortgages. I even feel sad.
“Please, please Santa can you make it work?
“I know it’s a lot though I’m sorry.
Connell added she was devastated that young people were becoming so affected by the cost of living crisis this Christmas.
“It’s made me cry a lot to think that someone so young is even thinking about this,” she said.
But it’s not the first time parents have shared their children’s devastating letters to Santa.
Back in 2019, an emotional letter written by a seven-year-old in a domestic violence shelter was read by thousands of people around the world.
We had to leave our house. Dad was mad.
We had to do all the chores. Dad get everything he wanted.
Mom said it was time to leave and she would take us to a safer place where we don’t have to be scared. I’m still nervous.
I don’t want to talk to the other kids. Are you going to come this Christmas?
We don’t have any of our stuff here. Can you bring some chapter books, a dictionary, and a compass and a watch?
I also want a very very very good dad. Can you do that too?
His letter quickly went viral, and touched the hearts of many around the country.
