Day 5: No Coat

To view in English just hit the "CC" button. I recommend you all watch this video because it really shows why I decided to do this challenge and the reality of not having a coat! I see a child everyday walk by and not have a coat. EVERDAY.
Yesturday, was a challenge. It was on the warmer side but it was still raining. Pouring rather and without a coat it is a challenge. This video really hits a cord with me and just really shows why I have done this. I have spoke about this cause and coat drive a lot within the last few days. Including at our church. After service a family approached me and asked if we would accept coats right then and there. I of course said yes. They took the coats they had off their backs and gave them to us! I was so heart warmed and just wanted to cry. I then saw this video when I came home and just broke down. I have gone 5 days without a coat and I already have felt the effects. There are people (children) where this is not a challenge but reality. Everyday, every moment, second they are wondering when they will be warm. Because when you are cold and don't have a coat that is all you think about. When will I be warm? You just can't focus. 


  1. We have coat drives in Austin around November. I am amazed how many people donate. Good post.

  2. I just donated 3 bags to the Salvation Army, they were all almost brand new new. I am so glad they will be able to bless someone who is in need.
