Coats for Kids, one opportunity to give...

Today, I want to tell you about one of my favorite organizations  Coats For Kids.  Established in 2004, their aim is to see that every kid who needs a coat gets one.

Recently, my daughter, (Brace Face) ran a coats for kids drive at our church.  It was really easy.  She painted a big box we fished out of the recycle bin, and put a sign on it that said "Coats For Kids"  over the next three weeks she collected new coats and in the they went.  At the end of the three weeks, she took all the coats down to a local shelter where they would be distributed to kids in the community.

The entire cost of the project was the time it took to fish the box out the a recycle bin, and paint it.  Many kind, and generous people took the time to support her in this project and make a difference in the life of a kid they don't even know.

I don't know about you, but nothing says "Christmas" more than that kind of generosity.
Thanks, Smallville, for showing us your gigantic heart.  It's one of the reasons we love you--(that, and it only takes ten minutes to drive across you...)

Merry Coat Giving!

  1. I love that. Shelby and I drove thru Starbucks today and when we got to the window to pay the guy told us the person in front of us had paid our tab. Love this season of giving - we should make it last forever
