Technology is for the betterment of mankind. We have seen various forms of uses of technology to connect people, help someone in their crisis period by raising money, be a part of several social activity group, make people aware of any social issue, make people laugh, entertain, etc.
In other words technology has been there to make a better world and community. On that note, this article is another example where the idea is to bring hopes through web technology for those people who are in less privileged condition, to make a better life for them in the community. Let’s talk about how that can be done.
Most of us have extra stuff that we don’t need and want to giveaway. For that what we do is very simple. We either throw that stuff in the trash or drop off in a thrift store.

Donated items should be absolutely free for the people in need.
