Websites 4 Peace — Donating Used Clothes

Used clothes are often just thrown out. There are good reasons to throw them out. They may bee too worn or too threadbare to be of use to anyone else. They may be so heavily stained that no one can ever get the clothes clean again. It may just be that it’s an item of clothing that no one in their right mind would use second-hand, such as a pair of panties, boxers or briefs. No one is going to put these on after someone else used them heavily, at least no one should. However, regular readers at Websites for Peace can help people in their own communities by donating to thrift stores.

Before someone decided to drop items off at any box asking for used clothing, the person making the donation should be careful. Some of these boxes are used by for-profit companies and these companies end up hurting textile companies in the developing worlds. The textile industry is often the first industry to come to these countries, and hurting the textile industry hurts the local economy. Donating directly to a local thrift store avoids this problem.

Many people who donate clothes to the Salvation Army or a local Good Will fail to wash them first. This leaves the people who buy them with the unpleasant task of trying to remove these stains. One of the easiest things anyone can do before making a donation is to send the clothes to be sent off to the thrift store through the wash. This saves a poor person looking for a job the extra work of trying to get the stain off herself.

After this, it’s just a matter of taking things out of the car and putting them up for donations. Employees and volunteers sort through the clothing, size it and tag it appropriately. Sometimes the thrift stores process things specially. This is specially true for bedding, as federal and state laws require mattresses to be treated for bed bugs. Bed bugs, as the old rhyme suggests, offer an unpleasant bite. It shows up as a large red rash on the skin.

Promoting and Celebrating Peace and Prosperity

There comes a time when we reevaluate our lives, our friends, our associates as well as how we spend our time and resources. In life, some things are taken for granted in one continent while humanity craves the same. We walk briskly, oblivious of the peaceful state around us, when a lady in another area cannot leave her home without escort. What you may think as normality may be a sort after thing for another.

Websites for peace not only advocate for peace, they raise money to ensure the war torn areas are restored back to normal, that the orphaned child and the widowed may have a roof over their heads. They ensure that girls and boys get their basic needs alike, that discrimination against race, tribe, color or sex is eliminated by all costs. They give hope to the young lad scrolling on his broken phone screen and those living in captivity. Peace and prosperity for all!

Websites for peace are not here to make a coin or two to benefit a few well off gents, tucked away in the comfort of their villas, they are here to benefit the children of war zones, the economies in these countries and ensure that there is a better future ahead. We all have a part to play, whether it is sending a donation link to a friend who may donate a thing or two, whether it is using your mental capabilities to preach peace, whether it is sending food and clothes to the needy or whether it is appealing to the wealthy masses to join the course.

It is demeaning to humanity when war takes over our hearts and minds. It is demeaning to humanity when a child does not get the requisite education but if we join hands today, we can change tomorrow. We can define a new future for our brothers and sisters. Let us say no to war, to terror and demeaning life. Let us all celebrate life and live to the fullest. Let us all rejoice that tomorrow will be much better and we will all live to see it.
