Jon: How adorably morbid….

…the humane society’s “coats for cubs” program.

As many of you know, I have a job in the glamorous fashion industry. Because of this, I learn about a lot of tangential movements within the world of style. One that has caught my attention as of late is the Coats For Cubs program run by the Humane Society.

Here is the deal:

  • You’ve got a fur coat you don’t use or want
  • You mail it to the humane society
  • they send the coat to wildlife rehabilitators around the country
  • the coat is cut into pieces and used to line the cages of orphaned and injured wildlife
  • this make the lucky critters very happy, see:





Oh, and for those that didn’t find this entertaining enough,

here is a picture of Nicole Richie in fur and holding a turd.

    Somewhere, there is another dimension which is capable of physically representing the many levels on which this is just wrong.

    …I guess, uhhh, you have to do some thing with old fur coats, though.
