As an individual, it can be almost impossible to make a big difference in the world, especially if we’re fighting for a cause that doesn’t have a huge amount of support. This is why so many people around the world have opted instead to start their own charities. Charities in most countries offer much more reach than that of an individual, often they can be packed with governmental support, and being a certified charity means being free of certain financial obligations, such as tax.

There are millions of charity organisations around the world, each focussing on a specific aspect of charity that most others would prefer to ignore or not assist with, and without many of these charities in place, there’s no doubting that the world would be in a much more serious state than it’s in at the moment.

In a world of waste, with fast fashion, food and lifestyles, it can be easy to get caught up in having too much. However, it can also be hard to go the complete opposite route and get rid of everything. A great way to meet in the middle of these two extremes is to hold a clothing swap.
You aren’t introducing new items to the world by buying something you don’t need, but you are also giving yourself the chance to have some fun and get something new.
