Give Back the Fur

Buffalo Exchange is arguably one of the best used clothing stores around. With 32 locations in 11 states, its hip shops are a great place to buy, sell, and trade often good-as-new clothes. Now, the company is hosting a very cool program, called Coats for Critters, that lets you bring in any real fur or shearling apparel—maybe your mother's old mink stole or those rabbit-fur earmuffs you had as a kid—and donate it to the Humane Society's Coats for Cubs program.

The furs will be used as bedding and wraps to keep orphaned and injured wildlife warm. More than 200 wildlife rehabilitators in North America participate in the program. The Buffalo Exchange event runs through through Earth Day, April 22, 2007. I know a lot of FabSugar readers are anti-fur, but don't distress if there isn't a Buffalo Exchange store near you. You can also donate your fur directly to the Humane Society of the United States. To see where to send it (and claim a tax deduction!),

To donate, pack your furs—including coats, hats, gloves, and other items—in a sturdy box or padded envelop for smaller items. You can mail it to:

The Humane Society of the United States
2100 L St., NW
Washington, D.C. 20037
Attn: Coats for Cubs

To claim a tax deduction, you should also include a note in the box with your email or mailing address requesting an acknowledgment. The thank you letter should arrive in two to three weeks.
