Several times a year, we regularly clear out our closets. We fill up used balikbayan boxes with clothes that are still wearable, some brand-new and never worn. We send these boxes for donation to Caritas and to other charitable institutions. We also send to poor communities.
I’ve started filling up some boxes again the other day.
It’s becoming harder to choose which clothes to give away because the ones I have left are all “I want to keep but masikip”. At least two dozens are brand-new waiting for me to be sexy again. They (the clothes) will forever be waiting for something that will never happen. To begin with I have never been sexy.
I would like to encourage all of you Oh My Buhay readers to generously send me your old clothes (yung malinis at mabango). Don’t send kung madumi at baka ako pa ang maglaba.
Open your closets and get those stuff you don’t wear and will no longer wear. Huwag na ding umasa na papayat pa kayo. Ibigay na lang yung mga size Small and Medium. Keep the large and XXL.
Huwag manghinayang kahit mahal yung damit kasi aamagin lang yon sa aparador nyo.
I will be away for a while. That gives you ample time to do the sorting and decision-making “eto kaya o ito, love ko ‘to, baka papayat pa’ko”. Huwag na, basta close your eyes and dump the dress in the supot or box.
Our less fortunate kababayan will have better use for our clutter.
Let’s help the poor by donating old clothes. You may also send old towels, blankets, pillow cases, toys, and books.
I intend to bring whatever I can gather to the very poor living in Baseco Compound in Tondo in July.
For those who want to unload their cabinets of clutter, please pack the clothes neatly, seal the box or supot and label,
To: Oh My Buhay – Charity
