{Guest Post} Why Donating to Goodwill is a Good Thing…

Check out my guest post over at Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont’s blog! 🙂

Here is a little teaser:

Wake up call #1:  We all have a little too much “stuff” lingering in our lives.

Wake up call #2:  Just because you paid $100 for that lamp doesn’t mean you should keep it … Especially since you don’t even like it.

Wake up call #3:  Recouping your “investment” in anything is highly unlikely unless it is uber-name brand!

Wake up call #4:  It is much easier to donate than sell.

Goodwill Cornerstone Celebration…

Things have really picked up around here. 🙂 All good things of course.

I was recently asked by Goodwill of the Southern Piedmont to become their “Professional Organizer Expert Blogger”. Me?! 🙂 Of course I said yes!

I was then invited to the Goodwill Cornerstone Celebration luncheon held downtown a few weeks ago.  What an event!  700+ attendees — inspiring and amazing stories — not to mention a great learning opportunity for me.  I thought Goodwill was the place where you drop off unwanted items.  There is so much more to this amazing company!  I left in awe and inspired.  🙂

For instance:  Did you know that $0.90 of every $1 spent at Goodwill stores is funneled into the programs that help thousands in our community each year?  🙂 Wow!  I didn’t know that!

Tomorrow I will be touring the Goodwill offices and Career Development Center.  I am so excited to learn more about what Goodwill is all about! 🙂  Stay tuned!

Until next time…
