Generally, I am very sceptical when receiving calls from organisations seeking donations for elderly and children. Recently I received a call seeking donation of clothes.
As usual, I was my sceptical self, and thus I questioned how do I know whether the clothes I donate are reaching the real beneficiaries. The caller just gave me an address and asked me to come there. On the Saturday of that week I went to the address at the appointed time, and to our surprise we were welcomed by a bunch of kids and fabulous human beings wearing the very same donated clothes.
The feeling was surreal and very emotional. It changed my perception, one cannot apply the same yardstick. We promised ourselves to keep visiting the place.
