And now that that holidays are over it is easy to fall back into our old ways. Charitable donations fall drastically after the holidays, but as winter approaches there are many people whose needs for warm clothing is just beginning.
That is why I was so happy when Burlington Stores asked me to join their Warm Coats and Warm Hearts Coat drive. This is the 8th year that Burlington has run this campaign and so far more than 1.3 million coats have been donated.
Now that my kids have received new clothes and jackets for Christmas, it is the perfect time to go through the closets and donate the ones that don’t fit anymore. Since we live in California, and the weather is pretty mild, our coats are practically new! I love the idea that our coats could be keeping someone warm this winter.. someone who otherwise wouldn't have a new coat.
I made a short video of our donation adventure. (It features some really cute kids if I do say so myself, I’d love it if you would take a minute and thirty seconds to watch it!)
Burlington, a national off-price retailer offering style for less with up to 65 percent off department store prices every day, continues to help local communities stay warm with their annual Warm Coats and Warm Hearts Coat Drive. Donated coats stay locally within each store community and are given to those most in need. With each coat donation, customers receive 10% off their entire purchase as Burlington’s thank you. A great way to give back and save money at the same time! Visit the Coat Drive site to learn more and where you can donate by 1/19/2015.
