Goodwill Industries International, Inc.
October 25, 2010

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.

The Great!

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

Ways to make it better...

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.

I am the national spokesperson for Goodwill and the Donate Movement, but I am writing this review as a SHOPPER. My spouse and I buy lots of clothes at Goodwill, and I always make sure I am wearing clothes from Goodwill in my videos. I love shopping at the Brodie Lane and the Lake Austin Boulevard stores. Everything is color-sorted within sections that are also sorted by sleeve length (ORGANIZED! Just the way I like it). The stores are neat and well-managed by polite and helpful people.

The Great!
