Giving donations to purple heart might seem like a task that is out of your reach. You might think that you don’t have the kind of money it would take to make an actually substantial donation. You might think you couldn’t possibly make a difference.
The fact is, however, there are a number of things you could do to donate to a charity. When you think about a charitable donation, think about how there are so many children in need of clothing throughout the country and that your donations of clothing could be the very thing that is needed.
In 2006, there were over 2.5 billion pounds of fabric kept out of the landfills because people donated their used clothing to charity foundations instead of just throwing them in the trash. These donations of used clothing and other used items make a huge difference when it comes to raising money for charity and for helping people in need.
Americans will donate about 4.7 billion pounds of clothing every single year. in contrast, we send over 10 million tons of used clothing to the landfill every year. You can easily see how great a disparity that is. What you may not be able to see is how much more we could do for those in need if we would take a second and donate our used clothing, no matter what shape it is in, to a charity of your choosing.
When you consider making donations to purple heart, consider that virtually 100% of household textiles can be recycled and used for other purposes, regardless of the condition they are in when you donate. Those old, raggedy shirts that you feel like no one would ever wear again can be recycled into something different. Throwing them into the garbage will only add to the overflowing mess of our nation’s landfills. You can make a donation of those clothes and truly make a difference in the lives of someone else.
Donations to purple heart are not only about giving clothing or money, either. Donations to purple heart can include anything thing from your used clothing to used appliances, used bicycles, used jewelry, you name it. Something that no longer has any value to you does not mean it is something that no longer has any value at all. In fact, something you no longer want could fetch a nice price from someone else, thereby raising money for a very important charitable cause.
In our modern day world, especially in the United States of America, we have so much more in the way of things than we could ever know what to do with. There are things in our lives that do not even comes close to being used up or worn out. When we give them away, they can be sold to someone else who will get much more use out of them than we ever did and money will be raised to help people in need at the same time.
So, the next time you are going through your closets doing a little spring cleaning or totally re-examining your life, consider taking the things you feel like you could do without and making a donation to purple heart or any other organization that is recycling used stuff for the could of others.
Life is too short for all of the things we have that we will never use. It is also way too short to not help others whenever we have the chance to do so.
