Supporting Goodwill on Cyber Monday

Tomorrow is Cyber Monday, and there are three BIG ways you can support our job training and education programs this year with your online holiday shopping.

1. You can shop online! Goodwill lists about 3% of our total donations in our online stores. Not only is our #SparkleSale currently running, but tomorrow we’ll also be listing many fashion and designer items at a discounted price—and all with free shipping! Every purchase online makes a positive impact on our community by supporting our programs.

2. You can shop at and make Seattle Goodwill your preferred charity! Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchase to support our job training and education programs! It’s easy to do:

  1. Go to
  2. Log in with your Amazon credentials.
  3. Search “Seattle Goodwill” to find us.
  4. Select “Seattle Goodwill.”
  5. Shop!

3. You can use Give Back Box! Once you get your Cyber Monday purchases in the mail, don’t throw out the box! Refill it with items you want to donate, print a shipping label—and send it to us for free! It’s a great way to do that pre-Christmas purge, and make use of all those shipping boxes! Here’s how:

  1. Pack your box with goods you’d like to donate.
  2. Go to
  3. Click “Print Free Shipping Label.”
  4. Enter your zip code and email address. (This is also where you’ll also select if you’d like to have it picked up from your home—and decide if you’d like your tax deduction donation receipt.)
  5. Print your label and secure it to your packed box—preferably covering the previous shipping label.
  6. Drop your box off at a UPS location, or have it picked up from your home.

Thank you so much for your support this holiday season! Last year, thanks to shoppers and donors like you, we helped over 9,700 local individuals
