Donating in kind provides an immediate benefit since the receiver can make use of the donated item within the shortest possible time.
Leftover food originating from parties, weddings and restaurants will just go waste, unless it is donated in order to satiate the hunger of deprived people living in slums and on the street. Community fridges and regular food tiffins are other means to feed the poor and hungry.
Old and/or used clothes, shoes, books, textbooks, toys, computers and bicycles that are not being utilized any longer are of no utility to the possessor. If donated, these items would be useful to underprivileged persons from weaker sections of society.
Other items like sanitary pads, blankets, stationary and household goods need to be donated in new condition only. However, there is no bar on donation of new items even in categories where old, used goods are accepted.
DONATEinKIND is here to help you become a donor of food as well as used and new products. If you desire, we co-ordinate between you and donation-seekers so that the process is concluded soonest. Of course, you can proceed on your own by directly contacting organizations and individuals listed herein.
We also urge budding social entrepreneurs to promote donations in kind in their cities and towns, followed by collection and distribution of used and new products. Likewise, we welcome seekers of donations in kind to inform us about their requirements, so that this platform can bring their needs to the attention of our audience of do-gooders.
Let us all take this movement forward to fulfill, in a small way, the mission of ushering in a kinder, caring and supportive world!
I am excited to see so many self-less individuals and organisations working towards donating in kind.
Your website is an inspiration to many people who wish to serve the underprivileged.

Collecting the information and generating the content must have involved a lot of perseverance. The effort has been worth it.
Most of the time we used to think that donations can be only in cash. Donating in kind can also be a game-changer!

One man's trash is another man's treasure. Let the 'haves' donate all of their used items which are in good condition to the 'have-nots'.

Donateinkind is a one-stop resource for donations in kind. Through this online platform we seek to popularise the concept of donating in kind. While monetary donations can be made by people with financial means, donating in kind can be done by practically everyone because item being donated is already in use with us.
Hereby we have started-off by providing information on donation seekers so that donors can straightaway contact the needy. However, in due course, we wish to move upwards on the value chain by organizing our own collection centres in major Indian cities, followed by distribution to deserving establishments.
While aspects covered above relate to physical goods, we decided to extend the reach to include human-origin components like blood, hair, mother's milk and body organs. By all means these too are donations in kind because through these donations kindness is shown to a cancer patient or a pre-term baby or an accident victim.
With this maiden venture of social entrepreneurship, our Advisors and Founder hope to give a filip to donating in kind in India. Shortly, we will launch another public-service venture www.cancerassist.in which will pertain to assistance for cancer patients in India.
