The Big Warm-Up

Doing your fall cleaning and getting rid of those coats your kids outgrew?  Donate them to a national movement.

The Big Warm-Up is a coat-donation movement that Lands’ End and the National Coalition for the Homeless have organized to inspire people across the nation to donate their gently used coats.  The coats will go on to warm some of the more than 3.5 million homeless women, men and children in the United States right now – each facing a cold winter.

Now through 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.   Lands’ End is giving 20 percent off the purchase of a new coat for each one donated.

Every blog post that spreads the word about The Big Warm-Up scores an entry in a sweepstakes – the winner gets 100 new Lands’ End coats to donate to a charity of their choice.  We could be the winner, and get coats for some of the mothers and children we know who can really use them.  Because even in California, it gets cold.
