You can join hands with the Gurugram-based ‘Clothes Box Foundation’, led by 32-year-old Sajan Veerr Abrol, which is putting smiles on millions of people’s faces through their work.

Started as a hobby idea in 2013, Sajan began distributing used clothes to the poor in his neighbourhood.

Soon, he was joined by friends and the group began conducting frequent campaigns and drives across India.

From a local initiative to now a benchmark for upcycling, how did the Clothes Box Foundation manage this feat?

“It was a TV show that changed the game for us,” recalls Sajan.

He is referring to the Star Plus series titled ‘Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi’ which told stories of people devoting their time to an altruistic cause.

When the Clothes Box Foundation idea was aired one night in 2015, the team received an outpouring of love from people across India.

That same year, Sajan quit his job as an analyst to devote all his energies to his social venture.
