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!

    What summer jobs are good for 8 year olds? I'm going to get my class job. But when it's summer break. What's the best jobs to have? PS  my school is more like a second home. That's why I posted it on family issues.

    Hi Jaera!      sisihastwobunnies is right. It's perfectly fine for you to have a crush, but you're a little young for a "love life." Don't worry though! Someday, if it's meant to be (Ha ^-^) you'll find the one who's just right for you. Until then, it's great to have good guy friends -and in years to come if one of those friendships develop into something more, then props to you (:  Future advice: You have to understand that feelings aren't always mutual. You may like someone and they'll see you only as a friend -or vice versa.  THIS IS OKAY.  It may hurt, but that's just proof that you'll have to move on. Something better is ahead,  you simply haven't gotten there yet (: Having patience can be hard, but it's worth it. Good luck! -And I hoped this helped!                                    Wishing you the best,                                             american_brit ^-^
