YESTERDAY… bent over against the driving snow, Albert walked the 1/2 mile to the school bus heavy with worry. He and his little brother stayed inside during lunch. They threw no snow balls. They made no snow angels. Snowballs and snow angels are for other kids. When the heavy snow soaks through your hoodie and light T shirt, you shiver all the way through math. Alberts Story
YESTERDAY… YESTERDAY… Albert and his mother were filled with what they call the winter worry. Yesterday… Alberts mother gave her winter coat to his sister …and she now has none of her own. Sadly, this story is common in the rural mid-mountain West. After bills and food, warm winter coats are extras.
…how to make SNOW ANGELS! TODAY… Albert is going to teach his little brother
Warm Coats & Warm Hearts is a project that combines the resources of One Warm Coat, Burlington Coat Factory and ABCs Good Morning America to meet this goal. In summer 2010, customers at Burlington Coat Factory stores made donations at check out – allowing us to ship over 4,000 NEW COATS to families like Alberts just in time for winter! One Warm Coats goal is that every person who needs a warm coat can get one. Since 1993, we have partnered with people like YOU to collect and distribute over 2 million coats to those in need! One Warm Coat, warming communities…one coat at a time. Alberts Story … told by One Warm Coat.
