Secret Life of the American Teenager star Francia Raisa is giving back! Francia is currently promoting the “One Warm Kid” campaign in conjunction with PS from Aeropostale and One Warm Coat. “Basically what PS from Aeropostale is trying to do is to donate at least 100,000 coats this winter to underprivileged kids who can’t afford coats this winter,” Francia shared with OK!.

“They are asking people and especially kids if they can start their own drives at schools and stuff so they can raise coats from their own closets,” she continued.

“I’m promoting that message and also telling them that they can also donate any coats to their local PS from Aeropostale and if they do they get a 25% discount. That should motivate people!”

Why is Francia so devoted to the cause? It’s simple! She hates being cold!

“I hate being cold. I have a love for kids and anytime I hear a campaign for anything for it I like to get involved as much as I can,” she told OK!.
