Decluttering with a purpose


Hello folks…especially to those located in India. I have mentioned about this organization GOONJ before. GOONJ is a nationwide movement working on the issue of clothing. There is a special camp they are organizing from Feb 14th to Mar 3rd during which DHL (Courier Company) will come and collect the de-cluttered items from your homes and deliver it to GOONJ’s Mumbai warehouse, for distribution to the needy and poor. DHL can be contacted at 022-2658 5151 or  idonate@dhl.com

Items that can be donated are:

ü  CLOTHES (Old / New but in wearable condition)

ü  FOOTWEAR (in pairs – left and right tied together)

ü  UTENSILS

ü  STATIONERY (Old/new notebooks, text books, story books, school bags, lunch boxes, water bottles, Pen, pencil, sharpener, eraser, scale, crayons/ colours)

ü  PAPER (Newspapers, magazines, one side used paper)

ü  DRY RATION (pulses, spices, sugar, tea leaf, rice etc)

ü  SEWING MACHINES

ü  BICYCLES

ü  COMPUTERS

ü  SCIENCE LAB EQUIPMENTS, etc..

Guys lets use this as an opportunity for our homes to go from fat to fit. No one wants excess of anything be it body fat, stuff, free time, OR work. There is a beauty in being moderate.  Also look at the reward you get for donating your unwanted items.  There are 2 levels of benefit you get directly without spending a ruppee.

  1. You get to make your house look really pretty. Read a previous post on that topic: http://wp.me/pRXtZ-c
  2. You are doing charity work without spending a penny. You are simply collecting the unwanted items. Then calling or emailing the DHL service to get it picked up.

 

Aren’t these benefits good enough to already get you jumping out of your seat to gather items that are collecting dust or otherwise?

Let’s help GOONJ and de-clutter in the process. You can visit them at www.goonj.org
