Warm for the Winter

Your DGB for today is to help someone get a coat.

If you live in the U.S right now chances are good that it’s cold. Even the deep South like Florida and Georgia have experienced freezing temperatures, snow and ice. And farther north, winter’s hitting harder than it normally does with bomb cyclones and record-breaking snowfalls. This kind of weather makes warm clothing absolutely essential for comfort and survival. If you are lucky enough to have some extra winter gear or maybe some extra winter cash, please consider helping someone that needs a coat.

The organization One Warm Coat has a very simple mission: to connect coats with the people who need them. They do this in a variety of ways including collecting coats, collecting money to buy coats, or helping you organize a coat drive in your local area. Since they make it so simple we would love it if you could find a way to participate:

Here is a map to help you find a coat drop off or local coat collection event: http://www.onewarmcoat.org/donatecoats/

Here is their cash donation page: https://www.onewarmcoat.org/donate/

If you are feeling really ambitious, they can give you resources to help you hold your own coat drive: http://www.onewarmcoat.org/holdacoatdrive/
