Five Reasons To Consider Donating To Veterans

Millions of American soldiers put their lives on the line every day and in the line of duty, many servicemen and women are injured. There are an estimated 22 million military veterans living in the U.S. as of 2014 and of the 22 million, 3.8 million were living with a disability that came as a result of their military service.

Veterans deserve our help and many of them need a great deal of help. Around the U.S. there are many organizations like Purple Heart Pickup and Wounded Warrior Project who accept donations, which are then donated to military veterans and their families.

What may seem like junk to you can go a long way for veterans when it comes to donations. There are many reasons to donate clothing and to help veterans in general. Not only can people in need be helped, but everyday folks can cut down on clutter in their home and help the environment at the same time.

Keeping that in mind, here are five good reasons to consider a clothing donation and other items to (more…)

When You Can Donate Clothes to the Needy

It may not come as a surprise to hear that the textiles industry is one of the largest in the entire world. After all, everyone needs clothing to wear, may it be formal wear, everyday wear, work or military uniforms, and even baby clothes and table linens. The United States in particular is one of the largest markets and producers for clothing and textiles today, and the average American consumer buys twice as many clothes as they did just 20 years ago. What is more, textiles is one of several industries known for their reclaimable materials, along with steel, plastic, cardboard, and others. Old clothes can be donated for helping families in need, and helping families in need or helping military families is common during the winter holidays such as Christmas and Hanukkah (such holidays have a charitable element to them). Any household can donate clothing for helping families in need, and veterans charities are also common for this. When is it time for helping families in need, or findi (more…)

How You Can Help Support Military Families With Your Gently Used Items

Our donations can go a long way towards helping those who have fallen on hard times. It’s my personal philosophy that if you can give, you should give. The amount doesn’t have to be large, in fact every little bit truly does help. In particular there are thousands of military families in the United States that could use a bit of help. Whether it’s donated home goods, or everyday articles of clothing. Donating your gently used goods not only serves as military support, but it can benefit us as well.

How Donations Can Help

  • Clothing Donations Donating gently used clothing can go towards helping military families that might not be able to afford brand new clothing. For example, if you have children you know how quickly kids can outgrow their clothing. Keeping up can be an expensive endeavor! Donating clothes that your children can’t wear anymore ca (more…)

    What You Should Consider When Buying An Engagement Ring

    Getting engaged is an incredibly special and important time in one’s live. It signifies that fact that you want to spend the rest of your life with another person – and that you’re ready and willing to do so. It’s a celebration of your love with that person as well, an event that marks the two of you as each other’s and no one else’s. Getting engaged is a moment that is truly magical, but there are certainly many things to consider leading up to it.

    For one thing, making the proposal itself special is key. This will look different for every single couple, of course, as different people will want different things as a declaration of love. Some people, after all, want big and over the top while others will much prefer something that is small and relatively understated. The perfect proposal takes planning out, of course, but still contains that element of surprise for the party that is being proposed to. Obviously, marriage should have been a discussion for some time before a proposa (more…)

    Closet Full Of Clothing you No Longer Want?

    Do you have a closet full of clothes that you’re not entirely sure what to do with? Clothes that are too small, too big, or even just not your typical taste anymore? If you find yourself as one of these people than perhaps it is time to go through your items and figure out if some of those clothing items should be put into a donation box to benefit those who are less fortunate, or even to give those clothes that you once liked enough to buy a second chance at being someone else’s favorite item of clothing.

    Making a charitable donation could help families in need that may not have had the ability to get that warmer or cooler clothing otherwise. Not to mention by going through the clothing in your closet and getting ready to put it out for donation you are also making it so that less textiles get stuck out at the landfills and instead they get re used to create a greener environment.

    However, here are some things to keep in mind when you do put those items out for do (more…)

    The Safest Uniform For the Job

    Many jobs in the United States, especially outdoor ones, call for the right uniform or other attire for safety during work hours. Some occupations, such as police work, firefighters, construction workers, and military personnel have great need for the right uniform for the job. A tactical police uniform, for example, will have everything that an officer needs for their daily work. The other occupations listed above may also need the right gear, from combat boots to fire helmet lights to an Under Armour job shirt. A tactical police uniform will keep the officer comfortable and safe during his or her work. How can clothes make the job easier?

    A Tactical Police Uniform

    Police officers have a demanding job even if they are not facing down an armed criminal. These officers sometimes patrol on foot or in their cruisers, and they may experience long shifts during various times of the day. Fo (more…)
