Helping Hand: Giving Thanks


I am thrilled to be a part of Good Morning America and Burlington Coat Factory’s 5th Annual Warm Coats & Warm Hearts Coat Drive. Many families across the country are struggling to afford warm, cold-weather attire. By donating just one coat you are giving someone the warmth of your kindness–both figuratively and literally. This is the fifth year of the coat drive and One Warm Coat will donate their millionth coat during this holiday season. Amazing!

Join me in donating a gently-worn coat to help those locally in need at your nearby Burlington Coat Factory. Not only will it warm your heart by giving, it will warm the soul of those giving thanks.

Help spread the word and share this post by retweeting, liking or emailing it to share with friends and family.

Let’s work together to make sure everyone has a warm and happy holiday.

Will you give one warm coat this holiday season?

XO Lauren

    This is so exciting. I will totally be giving to this charity and promoting it on my fanpage and twitter. Thanks, Lauren. I’d love to hear your thoughts on my picks for this weeks Fash Fave and Fash Fail on my fashion blog. xo

    What a great cause! I am 100% going to go through my closet and donate a coat as well. Thanks for telling us about this!

  • Kellie Norton

    I love thanksgiving not only for the food but because of the great opportunities to give back to our communities! This is such a great cause and I will definitely be participating! Thanks for letting us know :)

  • Shanna Waldrop

    Absolutely! Donating a coat & I want to volunteer at a soup kitchen!

  • Helen Le

    This is awesome! I was planning to donate my coat to Goodwill but now I’ll bring it to Burlington for a better cause.

  • Lauren Clemons

    I’ll give two! :)

    i’m learning socially responsibility in my design class. i know how giving back can help others; even if you don’t know how.

  • sofis

    I always when doing a closet cleaning send all the clothes that i don’t need, or the ones that are too big or too small to either a help organisation or let my boyfriends father take it down to a womens shelter in Stockholm.

    It’s an easy way to help someone who needs it and at the same time get some more room in youre own closet. That also includes shoes (if i haven’t worn them out yet..) and coats and winterjackets.

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I’ll check with my family to see if they have extra coats, a Burlington is really close to me. I’ll post about it on my blog too to spread the word.

    Kindness is the best accessory,

  • LillyElla

    I have a closet full of coats and hoodies/sweaters, all oh which I do not wear! Will def go through and donate a coat!

    I just cleaned out my coat closet and have several I will be donating. Thanks for sharing, I hadn’t heard about this coat drive!!

  • FIDM Fashion Club

    What a great cause Lauren! I will also have to go through my coats and find one that I don’t wear because if I’m not wearing it, I’m sure someone out there would love to enjoy it :) Thanks for sharing this wonderful cause and I will be sure to share it with my FIDM Fashion Club peeps as well :)
