Hi, Walt O'Hara here.

My wife Audrey is a teacher. She is a teacher in the poorest school in the country. She is noticing a lot of the kids showing up for school in the morning without any winter clothes. I don't live in an arctic clime but it does get cold here in the Winter.

What I'm wondering is this.. Audrey is starting to collect coats and winter clothes (hats, mittens, gloves, scarves) for distribution to some of the families in her school. If you're coming to FALL IN, and have a coat or two to spare, could I bring it back to give it a new home?

We're not a charity. Just two people trying to do the right thing. I hope you can help.

Anyway, I'll be working events (probably), probably in the morning. I'll be easy to find.

Thanks so much in advance.

Walt, next year could you give me even two days notice? My own closet is thinned. I'm reading this at 6:00 AM, and I leave at first light. It makes hitting a thrift shop difficult.
