Layer On Love with Coca-Cola

 

Are you feeling the season? I love how fall brings the gorgeous colors of autumn leaves floating from the trees, the cold nights and brisk mornings that heighten your senses and put you in a holiday mood. But most of all, I love sharing the generosity, thankfulness, and blessings that abound with family and friends.

From Thanksgiving gatherings to Christmas, Chanukah, and New Year’s Eve, there is a lot of celebrating  to be done. It is always nice to count your blessings and share some too.

One of the best ways to share the love is by getting together and doing something for someone else. Today, I hope to inspire you to give back by joining Coca-Cola and working with One Warm Coat® to provide a layer of love for half a million people.

 

Coca-Cola challenges you to be a part of giving back this holiday season. Get together with friends, family, and co-workers to pay it forward. Hold your own coat drive. Are you looking for a great accessory for a coat? How about a scarf, hat, or gloves? have your friends over for a knit-a-thon. Celebrate the event by purchasing Coca-Cola at Walmart and serving it at a party or get-together. See, even the festive Santa Claus on the Coca-Cola bottle is wearing a coat!

So, that knit-a-thon sounds like a pretty fun idea, right? Just think of the laughter and fun you can have by getting the girls together for a random act of kindness party. What, you don’t knit? Neither did I. But Rory taught me how to loom knit — NO KNITTING NEEDLES REQUIRED! It is fun and super easy, and if I can do it, you certainly can.

We had a great time making a lovely scarf together. In fact, we have even put made a tutorial video for you, so you can make your own loom knit scarf. These scarfs would make great gifts, and what a warm idea to go along with a donated coat.

Here is what you need:

  • 1 – Skein of Yarn (our skein was 185 yards)
  • Loom Knitting Board
  • Loom Hook
  • Scissors

Watch the video for directions:

Coca-Cola Supports the Non-Profit Organization

One Warm Coat is a non-profit organization that has been providing coats to children, women, and men since 1992. They have taken their mission to give anyone in need a coat free of charge, from their first Thanksgiving weekend coat drive at one location in San Fransico, to a national organization supporting over 3,000 coat drives each year.

 

Make a donation, and don’t forget to shop Walmart for Coca-Cola, where you can find a wide variety of Coca-Cola products on the soda aisle.

 

 

Over the years, Rory and I have been greatly blessed by kind and generous people. Rory has a Mitochondrial Disorder, an energy metabolism disorder. She has been hospitalized over 100 times in her life. She was gifted knit hats and blankets, pillow cases, and more that made her stays more comfortable and cozy. We’ve had church members and friends that brought meals for our family to help ease the struggles of her illness. Experiencing these loving gestures warms your heart and means more than you could possibly express. They are moments and memories that last a lifetime.

I wrote about one such Random Act of Kindness that still brings tears to my eyes when I think about it – a true fairytale come true granted by a total stranger. The only way to say thank you is to pay it forward… and so we do. I hope you will help us give back this holiday season.

By coming together and donating to One Warm Coat® on Coke.com/LayerOnLove, we could collectively help to put a coat on one million people in need this winter.

  1. What a beautiful scarf!! I love the idea of pairing this with a coat–such a great holiday effort. Hurray for Random Acts of Kindness, I also just hopped over and read about the prom dress–it warmed my heart!!! <3 😀 <3 Hurray for people who care!!! Happy Holidays!

    1. Nicole, I’m so happy that you love the scarf. It really is a fun project for a good cause, and it feels wonderful to pay it forward. And yes, the prom dress was AMAZING! 🙂 Enjoy the holiday season!

  2. I didn’t realize that your daughter had been hospitalized that many times! It’s so nice to have people in our lives that go out of their way to help others. Your scarf is gorgeous and it’s a wonderful thing that Coca-Cola is doing!

    1. Yes, there were some years Rory was in the hospital more than she was out…it was rough (and scary). But the last few years have bee GREAT! Coca-Cola is supporting a fantastic cause, and I am super happy to be working with them to create awareness.

    1. Jean, I am right there with you…knitting needles, oh.my.goodness. I can’t do needles either, but this loom thing is pretty easy. I was amazed how quickly Rory taught me. Give it a try! 🙂

  3. This is such a great concept. It amazes me how much Coca-Cola does for communities. I like the colors you choose. Thank you for sharing this how-to.

    Thank you for sharing this with us on the #HomeMattersParty. We hope to see you again when we open our doors on Friday at 12 AM EST.

    1. I get choked up every time I think about that prom dress and what all it meant to her (and me). That was such a difficult time for us, and that lady made her dreams come true! Rory really did do a fantastic job with the loom knitting tutorial. 🙂

  4. I’m so glad you did a video, this looks fun to do! And thanks for sharing the great info about donating with Coke! I didn’t realize they had this program!
