Shop for a cause at Burlington Coat Factory

Burlington Coat Factory prides themselves as being a great back-to-school destination, offering department store brands for up to 65% off every day. We all know how Dallas just loooooves to shop for a cause, so here's a great reason to check out Burlington today: Now through the end of October, Burlington Coat Factory is partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for an annual promotion called Light the Night.  Head to any Burlington location across the country and find great deals, then at check-out you can buy a balloon for $1, $5 or more. Over the past 16 years, the Light the Night program has helped to raise $16 million dollars towards blood cancer research and treatment.  This promotion will culminate in inspirational, memorable evening Light the Night Walks in nearly two hundred communities all across North America.  Join blood cancer survivors, their families and supporters in Dallas on October 27 in Downtown Dallas at Main Street Garden Park. Click here for more details.

I stopped by the set of KTXD's The Broadcast today to chat about this promotion. Assisting me in modeling on-trend looks were the children in the photo above. They ranged in age from 3.5 to 12 and all of them were either blood cancer survivors them selves or had an immediate family member who had been affected by this disease. I was a bit nervous about working with such young kids - I thought it would be like herding cats - but they did an amazing job and it was a pleasure to celebrate them.  I will be on the set of WFAA's Good Morning Texas this Friday, so tune in to watch! Here's today's segment:
