Give Back This Eid: Donate Clothes To Syrian Refugees

We don't believe there should be a reason to help or do good, although Holy occasions get us thinking about it more intimately.

As we celebrate this Eid with our families exchanging gifts, warmth and love, our thoughts remain with the (appx.) one million Syrian refugees living in very unpleasant circumstances in the Lebanese camps.

If you have a big heart and a couple of hours to spare this holiday, we urge you to go through some of your clothes and put aside one or two items you are willing to give away.

We've compiled a list of organizations that will take your unwanted clothes and pass them on to people who need them.
