As the national spokesperson for Goodwill and the Donate Movement, I have been in a unique position to partner with many members of the management team and see firsthand what a quality, caring organization this truly is. I am so impressed with everyone I come in contact with at the national office, and am impressed too with the CEOs and marketing professionals I've met from the member agencies all across North America. Goodwill has been around for over 100 years, reclaiming the value of both things and people, as the founder Edgar Helms said long ago.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

witnessing the quality work that quality people do every day to help those with barriers to employment

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

open as many Goodwill agencies as possible to help even more people in this economy.
