A lot of us eagerly wait for winters to set in, as there is so much more one can do outdoors, even in the afternoon sun. All one needs is warm clothing’s to enjoy the season. With bitter winter calling its arrival at many parts of the country, many of us have pulled out our blankets, mufflers, sweaters, jackets, shawls and thermals. But there are many others who would have to bear this chilling weather out in the open, with very little protection from it. The biting cold of freezing night is a dreadful experience for these under privileged souls. A lot of us discard our old winter clothing’s to make room for new wardrobe, or just keep them tucked away in our cupboards or suitcases. However, if we all make a heartfelt effort, we can share the warmth of these cast off clothing’s to someone in dire need this winter.

With this humane thought in our minds, we are listing out some organizations where you can donate blankets and other warm clothes, so that someone not so fortunate gets them and bear out the chilling night on the street. It’s time to do our bit!
