Warm Cloth Collection & Distribution Program 2012

I will gaze at the stars,
And maybe even Mars,
They are all so bright,
On a wonderful clear winter night,
Feeling the breeze,
Watching the trees,
They’re swaying with grace,
In this peaceful little place

Well, this is not always true, at least not for everyone here in Bangladesh!

So this year, AUTUMN Foundation started collecting warm clothes from the beginning of November. More than 50 volunteers supported this initiative through their dedicated hard work. A formal committee was formed in order to keep things organized. Collection is still going on and it will continue throughout this winter season.

The responses have been overwhelming and till now 6000+ pieces of warm clothes have been collected.

Distribution will be done in different phases. And December 12, 2012 (12.12.12) has been chosen for the initiation of the first phase. In this phase the clothes will be distributed among the victims of the recent fire in the Hazaribagh area of Dhaka.
