Act of Kindness No. 3-Closet Cleanout:Goodwill Project

I can't believe it is the third week of this project already.  My spirit is refreshed by the coming of Spring and I am so happy to see the sun shining each day.  With the arrival of warm weather comes a need for Spring Cleaning which is what Brack and I have been trying to accomplish this week.  With that being our main goal for the week, it was clear that this would be the week we FINALLY donated our extra stuff to charity.
          When Brack and I volunteered gutting houses in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, we made a pact to ourselves that we would donate to goodwill at the very least once a year.  One of the largest lesssons we learned while carrying out hundreds upon hundreds of soggy items from flooded homes, was the lesson that we all have too much stuff. This is a lifelong project we have committed to and I am glad you are with us this year.
           Goodwill Industries International, Inc. uses donations to help fund "job training programs, employment placement services and other community-based programs for people who have disabilities, lack education or job experience, or face employment challenges." There are over 2,300 stores across the United States and Canada and making a donation is quite simple.  Watch Brack and I make our donation:

Please also remember to visit your local food pantries to donate items to those in need. 

Blessings to you all and Happy Easter!
