Diwali is one of the biggest festivals in India. Regardless of any religion, the festival of lights is appreciated by every Indian and for many people, it’s the ‘Diwali bonus’ or new clothes that they get from others.

Here’s How To Donate Items To Charity Online:
Courier your stuff to NGO:
As easy as it sounds, packs all your stuff and gets it transferred by using any logistics or courier services to drop it at the NGO location safely.

Use Sites like DonateKart to donate items to charity:

There are sites that run this kind of activity, using which you can actually request a ‘pick up’ from home. Some of the site names are:
PS: Please don’t include clothes that are torn off, damaged or dirty ones. Even items like plates, glasses, blankets, etc if damaged cannot be provided to anyone, hence do not include.
