One Warm Coat works to provide warm coats to underserved communities. Each year, thousands upon thousands of people suffer or even die due to extreme cold temperatures. Children and the elderly are particularly vulnerable, and studies show that people with comorbidities are at a higher risk of heart attacks and other fatal health events after exposure to cold.

The harsh global economic climate only exacerbates the issue — families who are struggling to even keep a roof over their heads and food on the table are often forced to forgo a warm coat for themselves or their children. Help us wrap them in warmth and keep them safe — sign up to participate in the GISH Wizards & Weirdos Mini Scavenger Hunt and you’ll provide 2 coats to 2 people. Upgrade to a Most Premiumerest Registration and you’ll provide warmth to 4 souls in need!

Spread some Chaotic Good with us and join us for the adventure of a lifetime, right from the comfort of your own home— and when you do, you’ll help us cast a spell of warmth and goodwill throughout the realm!
