These Kids Are Wrapping Coats for the Homeless around Posts and Trees

Tara Smith-Adkins of Halifax, Nova Scotia wants to make sure that the homeless people in her town don't want for warm winter coats. So every year, she rounds up local kids to walk around town, tying coats and scarves to trees and signposts in the area.

This year, the event served as her daughter's eighth birthday party. She and seven of her friends tied up the coats with little tags explaining what they were for. The CBC reports:

The children wrapped lamp poles with coats bundled with either scarves or mittens. Each item had a tag that read "I am not lost! If you are stuck out in the cold, please take me to keep warm!"
