If a Muslim wears a Jack Daniels T-shirt in a forest...

...does Allah notice?

I always assumed that used clothing donated to charity either wound up being sold in thrift stores, given away to the poor, or if it's unsuitable for either of those, thrown away. It turns out, a lot of it gets sent to Africa. Even the Salvation Army will sell clothing donations, unopened, to exporters who sell it overseas. Even marked-up, it's cheaper than new clothing produced for cheap domestic African wages. In some places, like Zambia, the entire domestic garment industry has gone extinct.
