They say it’s always a good idea to start local before you head for something big. As we all are experiencing by now, mornings and nights in Indore have become chilly and most of us are battling it by getting comfortably cozy in our expensive winter clothing from our wardrobes or sleep in warm blankets. No, we are not here to brag our winter collection that we have in our closets, but we are here to make an appeal to each one of the Indori, to play a role of Santa.
Every year, thousands of unprivileged children and adults spend their nights shivering in cold because they don’t have any warm clothes with them. We, on the other hand, have many unused warm clothes lying somewhere in the house and closet that we are not even aware of and have completely forgotten about them.
Indore HD is here to remind you about those woolen clothes that you have forgotten and we urge you to make an effort, take them out, collect, and donate them to people and children who are in dire need of them. Here are some of the places in Indore where you can go and make the donation.
The village got a huge recognition, thanks to the splurging square but it never made any difference to the lives of people living there. If you are going to take a detour and reach the small village, you will find many children and families, who are spending their winters in a chill. Make sure that you have separated your clothes in your home as per ‘Adults’ and ‘Children’ to ensure the right distribution.
It is quite known yet quite deserted place in Indore where the management is having hard time sourcing funds for the children who live there. Even if you don’t have winter clothes, we would urge you to visit the place with cakes and pastries and play Santa for all the children out there who would start dancing even by the thought of it!

The colony behind pink city might be the place you would really love to donate your clothes to. It is full of many children who don’t have the winter clothing for the season and it would be a great idea to donate stuff there.
The road that leads to the back of velocity theatre is full of underprivileged children and it might be a very good idea to visit the place for once. Even if you don’t have any winter clothes, you could still bring smiles to the little faces, by taking pasties and chocolates on the Christmas day for the distribution. It would indeed be an awesome idea!
