Be The 21st Century Robin Hood

Once upon a time, during the medieval age, there was a heroic English man who used to rob from the rich and give to the poor. And we all know who that man was; it was none other than Robin Hood. But in a city with millions of people busy in their business, burdened with their duties, living their own life; do we find a soul bothered for the poor? Do we find anyone interested enough to engage themselves in any infamous charity with no personal motives? Don’t be hopeless. The world might be devoid of Robin Hood, but it has still sustained humanity. The twenty first century Robin Hood Army has abetter perspective to offer than fifteenth century Robin himself.

Robin Hood army, an organization with a vision to eliminate hunger and food wastage, are proving effectively helpful, and might be more efficient than Robin Hood. They don’t steal food but believe in better allocation of food.
