Extra! Extra! We’ve been smiled upon…

I received this press release about three weeks ago… And was ecstatic. I wanted to be sure it was true before I unleashed it to the world… And it is!

Santa Ana, CAShopgoodwill.com, the nation’s first and only nonprofit Internet auction site, is making it easier for treasure hunters and other online shoppers to find exactly what they are looking for. In addition to a crisp, new look, the redesigned site offers an improved search function that allows bidders to quickly preview thumbnail images of items. 

 

Shopgoodwill.com has over 75 categories and subcategories, from antiques and toys to one-of-a-kind collectible items,” says George W. Kessinger, President and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. “The new web site improves search capabilities, providing the best possible experience for our online shoppers.”

 

Shopgoodwill.com is the first and only auction site created, owned and operated by a nonprofit organization. Since its launch in 1999, it has earned more than $50 million dollars for Goodwill programs. More than 18,000 items are for sale at any given time, culled from the billions of pounds of donated goods the organization collects each year. All the proceeds benefit Goodwill Industries.

 

“With 83 percent of revenues going directly into Goodwill’s job training and other programs, shoppers can feel good about their purchases,” says Kessinger. “And they feel protected because the items all come from one source with an internationally-respected brand name – Goodwill Industries. It’s like buying something from someone you know.”

Yeah. Goodwill has an online auction site. Need more convincing regarding how amazing this is?

Do you like Gucci? …You do?
