Our closets are stuffed with clothes five times than our actual need. It is not helping us or anyone by keeping our cupboards so full and not using our clothes, our inner self always stops us from donating useless clothes by making us think that I’ll wear this dress some other day. A lot of people buy clothes which do not even fit them, they think of wearing them after losing weight. By donating these clothes we can make our life easy and it will help people around the globe. All of us have some clothes in our wardrobe we used to love a lot and were our favorite but now they are just old for us, “donate them’’ make them worthy of being loved again.
It Will Relax You
By donating we feel so good and relaxed by helping someone; it’s the best feeling ever. Just because of this even the richest people like Mark Zukerberg, Peter Nguyenhave very few options in their closet. When they have to choose what to wear, they only have very few options and that makes it easy for them to select and prevents them from fatigue. We can also stay away from this kind of fatigue by keeping our wardrobe minimal and donating something whenever we buy something new for us. If you feel stressed about organizing a wardrobe after a few days, there must be something you need to change.
You Can Help People Around The Globe
Believe me or not, the clothes we donate are used by the people all around the globe. We can take American thrift stores as an example; they receive a lot more clothes then their required capacity. They only keep 40% of the donated clothes and they donate remaining clothes to the different countries in the world where needy people get benefit from the clothes you donated. The clothes which were useless for you are no less than a blessing for the people in need.

It is pretty sure that you don’t need your used clothes anymore, they may be a waste for you but those clothes can be a lifesaver for someone in need of warm clothes in winter. Those clothes might be ordinary for you but they are much worthy for the needy people. There are many people out there who need used clothes, they may be;
- Disaster victim
- Underprivileged people
- People with low income
By throwing away your old clothes there may not be any chance for them to reach to the needy people. When you do well for others, something good happens to you as well because you are doing that for a noble cause. It gives you so much happiness and inner satisfaction because you are getting rid of clutter from your house. Also all the garments in your house are recyclable and reusable regardless of the condition and quality.
You may be hesitant to donate stained clothes or the clothes with whole, you may think of that dress useless and not able to donate, but please never ever let anything or anyone refrain you from donating clothes. They are not useless at all and can be used by people in need.
Protect Your Planet
Although our clothes are not made up of harmful material, when they end up in piles they become harmful for our planet earth and increase the ratio of landfill. There is not enough oxygen at the landfill to decompose organic material, so when our clothes decompose by anaerobic process and emit harmful greenhouse gases causing harm to our planet. We can clearly understand how harmful our clothes could be, if not donated properly. So, instead of wasting unwanted clothes we should donate them properly. It depends upon us whether we give them to thrift stores or handover properly to the needy people. Donating clothes will make your life easier and more organized.
Motivate To Donate
As we all know “weight fluctuates” let’s face it together. Many people do not let go of their old clothes, because their thinner clothes remind them of how physically fit they were and some people never donate their “fat clothes” to remind them not to gain weight again. It’s the best time to make a donation bag, do it and motivate you friends, family members, and kids to donate to help others. This will make you happy. Help people in donating clothes, encourage them.
Old Fashioned Clothes
We all must have clothes in our wardrobe that are old fashioned now “for us” and we don’t wear them anymore. Those old fashioned clothes must be donated because they may be old fashioned for you but for needy people they are clothes all they need to cover their bodies, to protect them from heat and cold. So, don’t procrastinate, just donate.
