We are way overdue for a Pay it Forward Friday….it is hard to pinpoint just one each month, however this one was a no-brainer. My love for coats runs deep, after all I was born and raised in Michigan, so outwear is a part of your ensemble basically 80% of the year.  I have been fortunate enough to have more than one coat to choose from my entire life, however there are many out there (TOO MANY) who don’t have this basic necessity. For over 25 years, One Warm Coat has been distributing coats in the communities where they were collected to children and adults in need, without charge, discrimination or obligation. To date, the non-profit has given away more than 5 MILLION coats.

I could barely contain my excitement when I found out that one of my faves, J.Crew was once again partnering with this special organization. Getting involved is easy, stop by your nearest J.Crew–find yours here and drop off a gently warm coat for the folks at One Warm Coat and receive a coupon for $25 off your purchase of $125. Below are some of my favorite coats currently available at J.Crew.

PS- I am also Paying it Forward to my readers via a giveaway on Instagram and Facebook...make sure you check it out!
