Charitable Clothing Donations

Charitable Clothing Donations

We've all been there: You scour through your closet only to realize a large number of your clothes are either dates or don't fit. Weeding through, you end up with a pile of shirts, sweaters, and lightly used jeans you'd rather not throw in the garbage. So, you decide to throw them in a bag and drop them off in a clothing donation bin, feeling good about yourself that you've donated them to charity. Shockingly, more often than not, rather than helping a charity and clothing the poor, your clothes have just helped fuel a business that is making someone rich.
