Help Save A Life, Donate A Blanket For The Homeless. Here’s How

Every winter, we ask you to help keep the homeless warm. A blanket donated by you can save a person’s life. The rise in air pollution levels and the early onset of winter this year have made the homeless especially vulnerable.

New Delhi Television Limited (NDTV), in collaboration with the Uday Foundation, a non-profit organisation, has initiated a drive to provide blankets to help people keep warm in North India. The target for the initiative is to collect 60,000 blankets for distribution in cities including Delhi, Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh. Here are the details of how you can help:

'Blanket Drive' for the Homeless - An NDTV and Uday Foundation Effort

December 28 was Delhi's coldest night. The mercury fell to as low as 2.6 degrees Celsius. And in this bone chilling cold, there were many who slept on the streets on pieces of cardboard and covered themselves with plastic sheets. These homeless people struggled to keep themselves alive.
