#Giving Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Thrift Divas!

We are so excited to be partnering with Goodwill Industries  for their #Giving Tuesday campaign. I'll be the first to admit that when we're out thrifting at our favorite Goodwill stores or just donating items, it feels good to know that while we're finding cute clothes or getting rid of unwanted stuff, we're actually helping people in need!

Did you know?

When you donate stuff to your local Goodwill - a used sweater, CDs, furniture, or electronics - you support Goodwill's effort to provide a variety of employment services to people in need in your community. You also clear your own clutter as the same time!

Today (and everyday) Goodwill is encouraging everyone to give thanks by donating used foods to one of Goodwill's more than 2,700+ locations throughout the country. Don't forget that all donations are considered charitable tax-deductions.

Cool right?

And just to show you how far your donations can go, please check out this mini-documentary, which tells the story of someone whose life was transformed through their involvement with Goodwill.


Last year, Goodwill provided employment training, job placement, financial education, youth mentoring and more to 6.7 million people in the United States and Canada.

Check out how they do it:

Need to find a Goodwill?  Through Goodwill's locator tool, it's easy for people to find their nearest Goodwill location, including stores, headquarters, job training centers and donation centers. You can also use their Donation Impact Calculator to see how every item you give has supported people who are seeking to earn jobs and build careers.

So what are you waiting on? Stop by your local Goodwill and shop or donate today! See you there!
