West 49 Coats for Kids Charity

Help a kid stay warm this winter by donating your old coats to West 49 Coats for Kids! Get a move on it cuz this coat drive only runs until November 12, 2007!

West 49 Coats for Kids - Calling All Coats!

West 49, Canada's leading skateboarding retailer, has launched its national Coats for Kids charity for the fifth year in a row. With an estimated 1.2 million children living in poverty in Canada, West 49 is collecting coats to help 'em stay warm and cozy all winter long. Last year, they collected more than 7,700 coats, but they're trying to beat that number this year! So if you've got an old coat just hangin' around in your closet, consider donating it to a kid who needs it. You may not wear it anymore cuz it's too small or no longer in style, but it could possibly keep someone warm this winter.

West 49 Coats for Kids - Where to Drop 'Em Off

All ya have to do is bring in a clean, insulated winter coat to any West 49 store across Canada by November 12, 2007. In return, you'll receive $20 off any kid's snowboard jacket or $30 off any adult snowboard jacket! Wow, what a great deal! The donated coats will be given to various Canadian shelters and charities such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Salvation Army and the United Way. To find a West 49 store near you, just click here!

    Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family
