The Hundred Saris
February 3, 2010 12:19 PM Subscribe
My mother has over 100 Indian saris in her closet that she would like to get rid of. She would really like to donate them to some organization that could make use of them. We live in the US, so just taking them to Goodwill wouldn't work. Are there any thrift stores or charity organizations in the US which cater to a South Asian community and/or would accept the saris? Would anyone even want them?

By the way, the saris are in excellent condition and range from simple to super fancy. Also, I know she could do something crafty with them, but she is already full up with projects. She doesn't want to sell them. As a last resort she'll see if she can mail them to India, but she'd like to see if there is a cheaper donation route.
