Donate clothes to red cross

According to charitable statistics, about 70% of Americans give to charity each year, whether financially or through clothing donations, food items, furniture and other household items.

Many of us want to make charitable donations — we all know that making a donation is a good thing on a moral level. But sometimes, making a charitable donation is easier said than done.

This could be because we’re afraid of giving things up — or it could be because we simply don’t have the time to donate.
