Coats for a cause
If you thought about volunteering at a soup kitchen and helping others this Thanksgiving -- but are at home overstuffed with dinner and surfing the blogosphere instead -- it's not too late to do good!
All you have to do is walk over to your closet, check for coats in there you haven't worn for over a year, then take those off the hangers and donate them. By letting others reuse your unworn duds, you'll feel all warm and fuzzy inside -- and give yourself some extra closet space to boot. A few great organizations seeking pre-loved coats are:
Coats for Cubs. Got an old fur coat? Take it to your local Buffalo Exchange store sometime before Earth Day to donate it to The Humane Society of the United States, and the group will use the fur to warm and comfort orphaned or injured wildlife. The condition of the coat isn't important, and fur trims, accessories and shearling are acceptable too.
