The EMPWR Coat

 

Image result for the empowerment coat

The EMPWR coat is a water-resistant jacket, which can transform into a sleeping bag, or be worn as an over-the-shoulder bag when not in use. The coat is constructed of durable, water resistant Cordura fabric from Carhartt, upcycled automotive insulation from General Motors, and other materials provided by generous donors.

 It costs $100 to sponsor a coat, which covers the cost of labor, materials, and overhead expenses. Sponsor a coat to be given to someone in need by making a donation here. To receive a coat for someone in need in your community, contact them by filling out their “Request a coat” form

Invisible Children

All arguements and opinions aside regarding the Kony video and it’s makers, FEW people have fought as long and as hard as these guys, and in my mind they are the forerunners in the fight to save war children. And for all those who think they just make awareness videos, see below and click here for detailed info of the chart below. And once you’re caught up and ready to help save lives and end one of the worst wars ever, take the next step and MOVE.
