Running successfully from 2 decades, Goonj is an NGO which has never failed to create an impact on society. From education to sanitation, these folks have it all covered. This year, Goonj is celebrating Cloth Week, from 1st Jan to 7th Jan, where you can donate your clothes and woollens! You can donate clothes to someone in need and show that you care.
2. Uday Foundation
Every year, this NGO runs a Blanket Donation Campaign, where they provide high-quality warm blankets to the underprivileged. The NGO also provides people with dry ration and dignity kits. If you’re somebody for whom directly giving out clothing can be tedious, then you can donate money on their website. The money you donate is then used to buy a set of blankets and distributed amongst the needy.
