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!

    Your parents clearly hate you... Just kidding but maybe its time to talk to them and see if they understand where you are coming from.

    Okay, since I'm a girl and have helped many of my guy friends with this (even though I think they r too young for this but meh whatever), I can give you some advice.  1) Don't be mean or nice. You have to be yourself. Don't be nasty to her to get her to like you (it won't work), nor should you be Mr Nice Guy. Don't be there to carry her bag for her just yet.  2) If you want her attention, be creative. Writing a song is a good idea, but don't dedicate it to her. Just pretend you're aiming it at the general female population of your class. You can tell her that it's for her later, when she's into you. 3) Find out what she likes. Does she play instruments? Does she do sports? Does she fangirl over stuff? Does she play video games? Find out and DISCREETLY get her to know that you like it too, if you do of course. This is what worked for one of my friends: 1) Stay low until the perfect moment. If she falls over, come over and help her up, smile at her and blow her away with your charms, and then proceed to say hi and ask for her name as if you don't know her. It is creepy when a random guy knows your name and says it to you.... it just is idk. Walk away without looking back. This will make her curious for this stranger who helped her up. Do this for whatever situation. BUT JUST ONCE. DO NOT REPEAT. 2) If this happens again (she falls over etc), be sure to be really obvious that you're not going to help her up. Walk by without sparing a single glance. She will be reminded of you and wonder why didn't you help her. This is good - you want her to think of you. 3) Do something sweet for her. For example, if she likes a particular drink or cheap snack, buy it for her and walk up to her. Give it to her, but say something like "Hey _________! Here you go. I accidentally bought the wrong flavour and didn't want to throw it away. Don't worry - I didn't open it. Do you want it?" She should say yes, and ask for your name to say thank you. That's when you tell her. 4) Start to wave to her in the hallways and say hi sometimes. Don't do this too much though. Sometimes, if she waves first, ignore her. This should make her want your attention more. 5) Do something sweet again (like the song), but aim it not directly towards her (like I already said before - aim it towards girls in general). If you want some more, tell me! I hope this helped, but it might not - depends on what kind of girl she is.
