I swear the days go by faster and faster every year. Here we are, in the midst of the 2013 holiday season and where did the year go? A fun way to commemorate holidays past is to host, yep, you guessed it, a holiday sweater party!
If you don’t have anything to wear, take this Festive Holiday Sweater Quiz: http://bit.ly/SweaterQuiz and head to your local Goodwill via our store locator at www.goodwill.org to find a holiday sweater that suits your unique personality!
Goodwill also has a great Snapguide on how to host a festive holiday sweater party here: http://snapguide.com/guides/throw-a-festive-sweater-holiday-party/
When you donate stuff to your local Goodwill—a sweater, CDs, furniture or electronics—you support Goodwill’s mission to provide a variety of employment services to people in need in your community. This holiday season, we are encouraging everyone to donate goods to one of Goodwill’s 2,700+ locations throughout the country. Last year, Goodwill provided employment training, job placement, financial education, youth mentoring and more to 6.7 million people in the United States and Canada. (To see how the process works, just watch our “How We Do It” PSA.)
Of course, don’t forget that all of these donations are considered charitable tax-deductions, including the festive holiday sweaters that YOU are ready to let go.
Through Goodwill’s locator tool, it’s easy for people to find their nearest Goodwill location, including stores, headquarters, job training centers and donation centers. And through Goodwill’s Donation Impact Calculator, you can see how every item you give has supported people who are seeking to earn jobs and build careers.
Happy Holidays and we hope you have a fabulously festive holiday sweater party!
