Listen, it gets COLD in Utah.

Internets, it's time for a good deed or two.

Sue over at Navel Gazing at its Finest is holding a virtual clothing drive for the 100 Coats for Kids Project in Salt Lake City (and a giveaway, too, so check it out).

There are a large number of refugee children in the Salt Lake area who are from war torn areas of Africa and Asia. This year is their first experience with cold weather, and they do not have adequate winter clothing.

A lot of you reading this are from that area--you know how cold it gets. For those of you reading this who have never been in that area in winter, go fill your bath tub with ice, get naked, and sit yourself in the ice for an hour or two.

So here's what you can do.

You can go online and purchase a new child or teen sized coat and have it shipped directly to the refugee center (address below), or if you're in the SLC area you can bring new or VERY GENTLY used coats and winter clothing directly to the center.

Here's the address:
Gayane Manukyan
Att: 100 Coats for Kids Project
Refugee Center at AAU
1588 South Major Street
Salt Lake City, Utah 84115

If you decide to donate, go ahead and let Sue know (at the link back at the start of the post) so she can update the number that have been collected so far.

Thanks, internets. You're all awesome.
