We buy clothes because we can afford it. We stack them in our overflowing cupboards because we are privileged. And sometimes we keep clothes that we no longer use for reasons that range from emotional value to obvious attachment.
But when we donate the clothes we no longer need, we save a life. We help those who do not have a proper pair of socks or jeans to cover themselves to live with dignity. We make sure that no one goes to bed badly in these harsh winter (and even summer) months. By donating clothes, not only do you clean your closet, but you also participate in the common good.
There is a sense of pride in helping the less fortunate who can not afford clothes for themselves. Humanity wins every time you wrap your old clothes and donate them to charities like our SYLPHI FOUNDATION.
