your name here
I thought this was great for two reasons - the first is obvious: there are people out there right now who don't have the means to keep warm this winter, so why not donate a coat you are no longer using. The second is that the video they sent me in my email had my name in the coat the woman puts on at the end. I wasn't expecting it, and it took me a second to realize, "hey, that's me."* It really sent the message home. Talk about personalizing video!
Unfortunately my winter coats are all in storage 2000 miles away, or I would donate. This also seems like a great way to save a little bit of money if your child's coat no longer fits from last winter.
*This could be because I am still not used to my married name.
