Charitism shall act as a platform to allow the Beneficiaries to put up and share their Campaigns to raise support for the Materials required by them.

You shall be entitled to choose the Campaigns, You wish to support and donate the Materials, by making payment of the Materials to Alms on Charitism. Alms shall purchase the Materials and donate on Your behalf to Beneficiaries.

You understand, hereby acknowledge and agree that Alms or this Charitism does not conduct any detailed and in-depth checks on the veracity and genuineness of the Campaigns put up by the Beneficiaries. Thus, Charitism or Alms make no representation with respect to the genuineness of the Beneficiaries and shall have no liability to any party in relation to the transactions where Alms or this Charitism has not been engaged or contractually involved in.

However, Charitism shall ensure that :

1. all the Materials donated by you shall be of a reasonable quality; and

2. sourced at prices conveyed on Charitism; and

3. delivered to the Beneficiaries, intimation whereof shall be sent to you.

Change in products being delivered after the campaign- At Charitism, We strive hard to deliver the exact products donated by the Donors to the Campaigner. However due to market conditions, We have to make changes in the products being delivered to the campaigner. We make sure that the Campaigner receive the same worth of products that they received earlier as well.

Some of the reasons why there will be change in the products that get delivered-

1. As most of the campaigns run for over a month, Prices get fluctuated and we either have to send more or less than the quantity obtained depending on the price at the time of purchase

2. We work with a lot of vendors across India and as we only process the order once the donation comes, Many times the vendors will go out of stock of few products and we have to replace them with other items after consulting the campaigner

3. Campaigner receive products from other source and they want to use the donated money for other critical products

Whatever changes we make in the campaign we make sure that we deliver the same worth of products to the Campaigner.
