  • Lands’ End has joined forces with the National Coalition for the Homeless for the Big Warm-up. The Big Warm-up provides an opportunity for people across the nation to donate a gently used coat that will then go on to warm one of more than 3.5 million homeless women, men and children in the United States right now – each facing a cold winter.

    Beginning October 29 until November 30, Lands’ End is hosting Big Warm-up coat donation sites. Donated coats will be distributed via the National Coalition for the Homeless in communities nearby. Plus, Lands’ End is giving 20 percent off the purchase of a new coat for each one donated!

    Visit the site to see how each coat can warm a heart, track donations, find donation sites, watch an inspiring video and spread the word.

    Thank you for the linky. This link goes back to my book’s website which is promoting Breaking Forth: Using the Light to Dispel the Darkness. This book describes my upbringing in Kingston, Jamaica;it talks about the obstacles I have have had to face and overcome. It shows you how to use the power of God within you to overcome self-imposed limitations, societal barriers, and even witchcraft. Buy this book by clicking the Lulu link on my homepage. It is in printed and digital formats. This book changed my life while writing it–I know it will change yours while reading it.
