The Iranian city of Mashhad recently erected a series of 'kindness walls' to promote clothing donation and other charitable acts. Amid economic despair and falling temperatures, Iranians have come up with a creative new way to help the poor.

The kindness walls erected in Mashhad consist of hooks and hangers affixed to public walls with the words "If you don't need it, leave it. If you need it, take it" written above. These hangers are used to hold coats, jeans, dresses and other pieces of clothing donated by residents. Some businesses have even erected refrigerators of kindness to provide food for those in need.

While the initiative may seem simple, the small act of kindness can offer a small measure of relief for those in need.
