A saree charity drive by Six Yards Plus as part of Daan Utsav 2021
What is SAREETONIN
SAREETONIN is a saree donation drive coordinated by Six Yards Plus. It is super simple
You send us gently used sarees- please make sure these are cleaned and ironed before sending them to us
We check these sarees for defects and suitability for donation or for upcycling.
For every saree that is approved, we will give you 500 SAREETONIN shots. Each SAREETONIN shot is worth 1 rupee.
So for every saree donated, we give you Rs. 500 as a voucher that can be redeemed on our website. There is no upper limit on this. If you donate 10 sarees and all of them are approved, you will receive a voucher for Rs. 5000. You will be able to redeem these up to 50% of the value of your cart. You can redeem them at one go any time during a period of 3 months from your donation.
The sarees you have donated will either go to NAAM Charitable Trust and Goonj for direct donation and further use, or to Shaktiism for upcycling.
As an ethical enterprise, we believe in doing everything we do with a conscience and with the underlying theme of sustainability. SAREETONIN brings both these ideas together in the best way possible.
Sarees which are gently used, and will not find any more wear with you can be donated to those in need. This will extend the life of the saree itself, keeping it from going into waste heaps and landfills, and simultaneously, it will help those that drape the sarees for use or those that upcycle them for better livelihoods.
The earth smiles, because you are reducing the burden on it
Those draping/upcycling your sarees smile because they have received something in kindness from you
YOU smile because when you do good, there is a rush of happy hormones called Seratonin. The SAREETONIN shots help too, we hope!
What’s that they say about Kindness being the new Cool?
Our aim is to raise a donation of 100 sarees this Daan Utsav, between 2 and 8 October 2021.
