Give your fur coats to those who need it: Animals

Starting on Black Friday and running until Earth Day 2012, Buffalo Exchange is gathering furs to give back to animal charity program "Coats for Cubs."

Buffalo Exchange encourages you to "bring your real fur apparel, including trims, accessories and shearling, to any Buffalo Exchange and let us know it’s a gift for our Coats for Cubs program." Buffalo will then add it to the over 6,000 coats it has contributed to this Humane Society-endorsed program since 2006 to "provide bedding and comfort to orphaned and injured wildlife."

Umm, this is the most amazing way to unload that old fur you got from Grandma and a great excuse to pop by Buffalo Exchange and peruse the racks of recycled designer fashions at deep discounts. Best part: if you bypass the bag they'll donate an extra 5 cents to a charity of your choice. An animal option is always offered. Twice the four-legged love!
