Korea is beginning to have donations that help the needy. Now that there are people with plenty, there are those who want to clean their closets and feel better about themselves (making it okay to shop for more). Look for these green drop-off containers near apartment buildings. I’m happy to contribute shoes that give me blisters and clothes my husband should be ashamed to wear. “Beautiful Store/아름다운 가게” picks up larger items and has stores throughout the city.
