Donate a coat to Lands' End and get 20% off a new one

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.

Until November 30, Lands’ End is hosting Big Warm-up coat donation sites at its 252 Lands’ End Shops at Sears and 13 Lands’ End Inlets®. Donated coats will be distributed via the National Coalition for the Homeless in communities nearby. AND… Lands’ End is giving 20 percent off the purchase of a new coat for each one donated.

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

I don't know about you - but I could definitely go through my coat closet!

What a crock!! I thought this would be a great way to give back. I tried to donate coats to the local Sears Department Store ( Maryland) and they knew nothing about the collection. Directed me to another number which was only for people seeking donations from Sears. I called Lands End, they knew nothing about it and had to look it up themselves. They informed that it would have to be shipped to Boston!
