At United Across Borders, we are helping impoverished individuals in Bangladesh by providing one of life’s basic necessities through clothing donations to individuals who do not have the means to afford climate-appropriate clothing. United Across Borders is challenging individuals and educational institutions across the country; our challenge, to those who can help, is to donate gently-used clothing to be sent to Bangladesh.
The clothing donations that we provide in Bangladesh bring smiles to the faces of children and adults alike. Many of these individuals live life to the fullest every day despite having so little in terms of material goods. Essentials such as clothing and blankets, which we take for granted and may discard without a second thought, are precious to these people.
Bangladesh is a country that produces and exports twenty-four billion dollars of clothing each year to Europe and the United States. Ironically, the people that produce this clothing do not have the means to afford clothing themselves. Many of the individuals to whom we donate can not work or do not have the option to work. While those fortunate enough to have a job survive on a minimum wage of just fifty dollars per month.
Buy one shirt and give another
Through our “Buy One Give One” program, we are offering students, alumni, and fans quality university t-shirts while also providing an easy way to support those in need. For every t-shirt sold, two shirts and one blanket are produced and provided to those in need in least developed countries.
