Do you give a penny to charity? By Saman Hussain, BGA
Why not? Because now there is a multi-charity store just opened!
A new charity site has just opened in Brent Cross Shopping Centre and all the things you need to know about it.
It happens at a time when buying secondhand clothing is becoming more and more common due to increased living expenses and an increase in consumer demand for sustainable shopping. Donated clothes from ten UK charities, including Barnardo's and Cancer Research, are sold at Charity Super. Mkt in the Brent Cross Shopping Center.
The pop-up shop in the north London shopping center will be open for a month and be operated by volunteers.
Ms Chenoweth said they were inspired to organise the project because charity retailers "weren't getting the recognition they deserved".
The most disadvantaged and in need members of society gain from donations.
The most ignored members of society are frequently those who are most in need. Governments and society are not designed to provide for everyone who needs protection. To fill the gaps and offer resources to assist the most disadvantaged, charities are present.
What makes giving feel good?
The ability of charity work and generosity to reduce stress is one of the main reasons giving to others helps us feel good. Giving to others is a fantastic way to relieve stress, as evidenced by several studies. For other people, this can take a variety of shapes.
