Teacher Who Used Her Wedding Registry To Get Her Students Coats Shares More Good News Aired September 05, 2018

Remember that incredible high school teacher from Utah named Rickee Stewart who we met last December?

If you do, you'll recall that after learning that she used her wedding registry to get winter coats for her students, we worked with Burlington Stores to surprise her with 1,000 more coats for her students and $10,000 for her school.

(And she was so, so grateful.)

Well, we just received the most amazing update from her!

"Since I was on your show, we've been able to help over 3,000 kids receive a warm winter coat just in time for our cold weather to hit," Rickee tells us via a video message. "With Burlington's donation, we've been able to help not only the kids in my school district, but also an elementary school in a neighboring district whose needs are even greater than ours."

"The idea of receiving a brand-new coat put many of them in tears," she continues. "It was a life-changing moment for me and my students as we watched these kids walk in and pick out the first new coat that they had ever received in their entire lives."
