For us northern-hemisphere-dwellers not lucky enough to live somewhere that doesn’t see temperatures below 60, winter is entering its most inhospitable time. Fingers, toes, and ears are going numb left and right. Noses are stinging, eyes watering, and lips are turning into freakish things that require a dose of chapstick every few minutes. In short, it sucks. But odds are, no matter how unpleasant this winter is, someone has it worse than you. When your shoes are ruined by salt and snow, or you don’t want to wear your jacket because it makes you look like a puffy approximation of a human being, keep in mind that other people would love just to own shoes or a jacket like yours. And while it’s nice to think this, you can do something about it, too. There are a bunch of organizations that will take coat donations, if you have an extra one lying around.
