In 2012，Anshu Gupta and his wife Meenakshi heard about an earthquake and they wanted to help the victims (受害者)by donating clothes.As the Guptas looked at their collected clothing，they were surprised.They had so many extra clothes！The Guptas began to wonder how many people just left these clothes in their homes.
Gupta remembered one time when he visited a village after an earthquake.He saw an aid organization throw clothes at the people from a truck without any care or respect for how the people felt.The people were so shocked and troubled by this event that they would not use the clothes.
As Anshu and Meenakshi looked at the clothes，they had an idea.They wanted to start a new clothing organization which collects clothing all year—not just at times of crisis (危机)．So the Guptas began their organization and called it GOONJ.GOONJ encourages people with more than enough clothes to donate.It also wants to change the way people think about giving away clothes.One of the biggest problems with clothes donation is that you give what you have，not give what people need.Often，you do not give away old clothes as a gift.Instead，you just throw them away.But someone who is using your‘second hand’ used material is doing you a service.They are extending(延长)the life of a material.“We need to move the importance away from the giver's pride，” Anshu Gupta said.
GOONJ hopes to make sure the clothing is given to people who can use it，so it sorts the clothing.GOONJ does not give the clothes away for free.Instead，it helps organize projects that improve the community (社区)．People receive clothes in return for their community work.Gupta believes this helps the receiver have respect because they have earned the clothes.It also helps the receiver be proud of what they have done to help their community.

1．gave 考查时态。从后面的“I've been riding my bike to work recently.”可知，我过去放弃了开车，近来一直骑自行车上班，give up 是过去的动作，因此用一般过去时。
2．a 考查冠词。a stone's throw意为“近在咫尺”。可以理解为“扔一块石头那么远的距离”，是泛指一块石头，因此用不定冠词a。
4．more convenient 考查比较级。从后面的than可知，这里用比较级的形式，因为convenient是多音节词，因此其前面加more。
5．to ride 考查不定式。it是形式主语，代替后面的不定式。这是“It takes sb.some time to do sth.”结构。
7．energy 考查名词。从后面的我甚至都不需要咖啡来提神，说明骑自行车使得我精力充沛，再分析前面的句子have so much ________，可知要填名词energy。
8．to keep 考查不定式。这里填不定式作目的状语，意为“以使我保持清醒”。
10．going 考查see的用法。see sth.doing sth.表示“看见某物正在做某事”。
