We've all got clothes that we don't wear anymore. It could be a t-shirt that you've stopped wearing or a pair of pants that don't fit. So instead of discarding them, donate these clothes to someone who needs it. To help you manage your pile of clothes better, we have compiled a list of organisations where you can distribute your used clothes to children. But before you go ahead, there's a rule of thumb. Don't give something which you wouldn't wear if you could fit in. Also, kindly wash and iron them.
