They say a simple act of kindness has the power to change a life. If you’re in Bengaluru and are looking to donate things you don’t need, consider donating them to Bengaluru’s Wall of Kindness.
The Wall of Kindness was a phenomenon that began in Iran. The idea gained momentum swiftly and spread like wildfire across nations, including India.
In fact, the wall is not new in the city. Last year, a part of the police outpost at Majestic bus stand was set up as ‘karunya gode’.
Wall Of Kindness In Bangalore And Mysore
The proposal to have a fully functional Wall of Kindness at Basaveshwaranagar was initiated by Suresh Kumar, an MLA from Rajajinagar and Basaveshwaranagar’s Rotary Club.
The wall was erected at Bashyam Circle Rajajinagar, measuring 7 feet high and 9 feet wide, with 25 large compartments.
After the success of the wall at Basaveshwaranagar, walls were erected in Vidyaranyapura and Rajarajeshwari Nagar will also be getting not one but four Walls of Kindness
The initiative has reached Mysore as well. If you are from Mysore, find the Wall in HPCL Petrol Pump Compound, Near Dasappa Circle, Sri Ganesh Service Station JLB Road and CFTRI Campus Devaraja Mohalla.
What Can You Donate
When you visit the site, you can see a huge caption which reads ‘If you don’t need it, leave it, if you need it, take it’, giving out the essence of the phenomenon.
You can leave utensils, clothes, footwear, bags, notebooks, stationery, umbrellas, toys, jackets, sweaters, and other items at the wall. Since the items will be used by someone else, it is important to make sure that you leave them in good condition.
As expected, the people of Bangalore and Mysore loved the initiative. The walls will be under CCTV supervision to ensure security and will also feature fresh, homemade food. Instead of leaving packets at the wall, people can distribute fresh food at a fixed time.
Wall Of Kindness Objective
Hectic schedules and busy lifestyles have made it difficult for people to narrow down reputable charities for donations. Also, people who need items are hesitant to approach charities with their requirements.
The initiative helps these two sections of people by being a unique platform to give and to receive. They have phone numbers on each wall, so you can contact the team if you need any more details.
