Hunger hunt with sarees.......If you have a saree that you do not like and take up space in your dress shelf, it will help to deliver food to many people who are hungry during this lock down time. Mamta Das Sharma, a stylist from Kolkata, has started a challenge to free the sarees from the prison of the fashion shelf. They have set a different example with the hashtag 'Sari Savings Life'
A saree that has no place in your mind may have a place in the minds of others. Share a picture of such a saree on social media with the hashtag 'Sari Savings Lives' along with the address and bank details of the NGO, working for suppressant hunger. Those who want to buy the saree will send money (the quoted price in the social media) directly to the NGO. Upon receipt of information from the NGO that the money has been received, our sari can be sent to the address provided by them. The money goes directly to the NGO that helps with hunger.
Within a month of the first phase of the Sari Challenge, their group raised Rs 2 lakh for the hunger hunt project. In this second phase, more than fifty thousand rupees have been received in a short span of days. Women's organizations can do such good deeds in this way by joining hands with NGOs that are trying to feed the poor in their area. The needy will get food and there will be some space in our Almirah. Men can also lend a helping hand in this regard.
