We, as privileged people, have many clothes in our closets that some of them we don’t wear and are just lying around in our closets. While I was rearranging my closet, there were many clothes that I didn’t wish to wear or didn’t fit me and, that is when it clicked me to donate them. I and my friends asked our family members to find if they have any unwanted clothes. Also asked around in our neighborhood. After which we collected them, sorted them out and, donated the clothes to underprivileged people.

After discovering the unwanted clothes that our family had, my friends and I decided to spread the word in my neighborhood and gathered unwanted clothes.
