Donating clothes, electronics and more.

Over the past few months, I’ve been very active on our “Buy Nothing” group here in Queens. I have donated things from iPads, to playstation, to X-Box, to boxing gloves, to all manner of clothing.

These items have been sent to hospitals, churches, and people in need in parts of the world that are experiencing shortages and all manner of problems.

I have always been of service and have wanted to help people. I have literally given sweaters off of my back to homeless folks during the cold winter months. Nearly every extra coat I had is in use by someone I’ve run into outside who didn’t have one.

I’m not writing about this because I want props or whatever. I’m writing it to archive and to tell you how fulfilling and therapeutic it can be to help people. I don’t know much about what it does for your soul, but I do know that when I help someone in need, I feel happy and good that I could help. It brings me joy to help others. Knowing that something I did made someone’s life better, that’s just a great feeling.

When it comes to mental health, I have read that acts of service go a long way in helping you cope and rehab the problem. So, if you haven’t already done so, perhaps take a peep in your closet and determine if you have any clothes you’ve not worn in ages. I guarantee you that there is someone out there who would wear it right now.
