Goodwill is premiering a new donations video featuring local community members encouraging individuals to “let it go” and donate to your local Goodwill.  (Link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqDnLA0LyIQ.)

“This is a fun video highlighting the ‘stuff people say’ about donating to Goodwill so you will likely see yourself or someone you know in it,” said Seattle Goodwill Donations Manager Arie Mahler.  “When you are ready to let some of your stuff go, Goodwill is there to accept quality reusable clothing, electronics, housewares, books, music, toys and more.  The best part is that all of your donations support Goodwill’s free job training and education programs which help people in our community acquire the skills needed to get a job and become self-supporting.”

The volunteer cast in the donation video includes reporter Kim Holcomb, Rat City Rollergirl Anna Ivarra (Punkin’ Pie), blogger Jess Estrada, relationship expert Pepper Schwartz, stylist Darcy Camden, visual artist Cathy McClure, musicians Vince Mira, Billy Joe Huels (Dusty 45s), Meagan Grandall and Kendra Cox (Lemolo).

Visit Seattle’s Goodwill’s Facebook page or website from August 19 – 26 to answer daily questions about donations for the chance to win great prizes from local community organizations and businesses.  Prizes include a gift certificate to the Gary Manuel Salon, tickets to the Seattle Sounders, Taproot Theatre, ACT (A Contemporary Theatre), the Seattle Art Museum and the December 11 Macklemore concert at Key Arena.

All donors receive a receipt for tax-deduction purposes. For a complete list of donation center locations and guidelines, visit http://www.seattlegoodwill.org/donate.
