Heather (Virginia)

I am a mother of five children, one darling daughter and four dashing sons. When I am not wrangling with their schedules, I can be found teaching my 25 piano students, substitute teaching or RUNNING! I am a ten time marathoner with 5 dreamy "Boston" races under my belt. I run for peace. I run for fun. I run to eat. Speaking of eating, I have a passion for chips and guacamole, hummus and CANDY (any kind will do). I love being inspired. Music, nature, words, strangers, friends and a loving Heavenly Father grant me inspiration daily. How grateful I am for it.

Shasta (Texas)

Howdy from the great state of Texas! I am married to my best friend and we are enjoying every day with our 3 silly children. I enjoy cooking, gardening, and not sweating the small (or dirty) stuff! I believe that life is 90% attitude and 10% what happens to you.

Shannon (Oregon)

I write from my home by the sea in Seaside Oregon. I am dedicated to improving the lives of women and children and I love to serve others. I have worked as a domestic/sexual assault crisis worker, trauma recovery specialist and in many other capacities. Currently I follow my passions by writing for BillionClicks.org, FamilyShare.com, spending time with her family, serving at church, running on the beach and being a generally all around positive person.


I grew up in the northwest and am currently settled in Utah with my husband and four sons. I love writing and especially love learning from other people's inspiring examples. I teach preschool and also work at a residential treatment center for teenage girls. I love reaching out to struggling youth. In my spare time I'm trying to teach myself how to crochet. I also enjoys reading, hiking (in perfect weather conditions), and spending time with my family.

Hilary (Utah)

I love anything coconut - especially coconut ice cream! (I felt like I should start with the most important information first!) My husband and I have been married for 21 years and have four beautiful, fun-loving daughters. My favorite thing in the whole world is to be with my family - it doesn't matter if we are working or playing - I just love being together. I am also a scrap-booker, singer, songwriter, wanna-be-cook and dessert lover. We love living in Utah.

Donate a Coat

I grew up in Anchorage Alaska where the average temperature in winter is 11 – 23 degrees Fahrenheit.  It was cooooooold and I was extremely grateful for a coat.

I was blessed to have one.

Sadly, there are thousands of people in our communities that don’t have coats and may not be prepared for the winter weather ahead.  One Warm Coat  is a website to dedicated to nation-wide coat collection and distribution – they are collecting coats in Salt Lake County now until November 22nd!  They recently donated coats to Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada who stated,

“Many times our families have to make a choice whether to buy coasts for their kids or pay rent.  The coats we received make that decision an easier one.”

You and I can make a difference.

Go through your closets this week and collect unwanted coats, jackets, sweatshirts and donate them to your local collection agency.

For every coat you donate give yourself 50 clicks!

That’s right…50!

If you donate 2 coats – take 100 clicks.

If you donate 3 coats – take 150 clicks.

If you donate 356 coats – take 17,800 clicks!  (You get the idea…)

Once you donate, let us know via Facebook, or by leaving a comment on this blog or by sending an email to info@billionclicks.org.  Tell us you donated and enter your clicks!  And we’ll enter your name in a drawing for a chance to win…

…this adorable notebook (filled with inspiring quotes), the HOPE window cards and a clicker!  All that for clearing out your old coats.  What a deal!

You have one week to get your coats donated.  We’ll draw and announce the winner next Monday, November 19th.

Think. Click. Be…

a coat donor.
