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!

    If you're willing to face the consequences, then yes. I know a lot of people say violence is never the answer, but in truth it sometimes is. If you really want somebody to leave you alone, then fight. If you win, it shows that you're dominant over that person and hopefully he/she will leave you alone.

    Honestly, I think it's better to get your feelings out sooner rather than later- maybe ask him why he's being mean to you... Though, don't say it in such a way that annoys boys... If you know what I mean.

    Hello. Just call me Carrots if you don't know me already. :p Anyway, I'm hoping I'll be able to make a little forum post on making friends and making sure the friendships last. ^-^ ••• I hope this helps. ••• Making friends// Making friends can be dauntless, especially if you moved schools or to a different place which is simply far away from your old friends. I mean, it's fine to keep in contact with your old friends ##-####, text, letters etc), but you do have to consider it'll be better if you can make more friends at your new location- seriously, it'll help! How to make friends// • Get talking with people- join in people's conversations; try to be a little more social- it'll be easier to make friends if you're social around people. • Have a look around- are there any clubs or events that catch your interest- maybe a drama class or art club? If you join these type of things, you're more likely to meet people who have similar interests to you. :3 • Do act yourself. That means not to be so loud that people take you in the wrong way- but don't be too quiet either- otherwise people won't notice you! • Pay attention to people when they're speaking- they'll appreciate it if you just listen to what they say and you can have your say too! • Hang out with one or two people that you already know- who knows, you might be introduced to their friends too. • Do make an effort! c: [posting more tomorrow- I'm sorry that this is absolutely terrible]
