Donate winter coats!!

Navel gazing at it's finest is one of my favorite blogs on my google reader. She is totally hilarious. Yesterday she posted about a service project her and some of her friends are doing and asked for every one's help in accomplishing their goal. They are trying to provide warm winter coats to refugee children that have fled to Salt Lake City, UT. to get away from their war torn countries in Africa and Asia. Some of these children have never experienced any kind of winter and have nothing to protect them from the cold. Her goal is to get 100 coats and she needs some help doing this. If you would like to help out, all you have to do is send gently used coats, or buy a coat online and have it shipped to:

Gayane Manukyan
Att: 100 Coats for Kids Project
Refugee Center at AAU
1588 South Major Street
Salt Lake City, Utah 84115

As an extra incentive, if you comment on this post before midnight tonight, you are entered to win a $25.00 gift card to Amazon. You get extra entries for Facebooking, blogging and Twittering about the service project!

  2. Thanks for the info. I am going to clean out my closet and send some off. The post office also has one price shipping boxes so it wont be too expensive.

  4. I think adult sized coats would be appreciated as well.
