Vintage Furs- the Dilemma

Recently there was a discussion on one of the blogs I follow about vintage furs. It got a little heated to be sure, but I didn't really feel that anyone offered a good alternative on what to do with the furs. Problem solved! Today I ran across Coats for Cubs which is sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). All of the furs received are sent to wildlife rehabilitators, who use the furs to warm and comfort orphaned and injured wildlife.The furry blanket becomes a surrogate mother to orphaned animals, reducing stress and giving comfort. If you mail the donation directly to HSUS you will be able to deduct the donation from your taxes. Visit the site for more details.

To make it a little easier, from now until April 22, you can drop off your donation at any Buffalo Exchange, a nationwide resale store. Just make sure to let them know it's for Coats for Cubs.
