VOTE WITH A COAT...one day early
My buddy Steve Holstein, of Holstein & Company at WIXY (100.3), is working with the Champaign Schools Family Information Center, on Monday morning, from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., to collect new coats for kids that need them, in this community.
There will be a drive-through coat drive at Atlanta Bread Company on Neil Street, on Monday morning. Drive through, drop off a new coat or $10 in either the Obama or McCain box, and get a free bagel and coffee to go.
And you can get your photo taken with a cardboard replica of your candidate. Hey! You can enclose the photo in all of your e-mail attachments on Tuesday, to encourage your friends to vote for your guy!
Of course, this isn't about the photo; it's about keeping a little body all toasty warm this winter.
So: Here's an Adventure Idea for your familia: Skip the $8 theater tickets and the $9 popcorn tonight. Take the kids to Walmart. Target. Farm & Fleet. Buy one coat, a $5 DVD, and a box of microwave popcorn.
You'll see a movie, eat some popcorn, keep a kid warm this winter, and break even in the process.
I'll see you Monday.
