  1. Please don't donate to Goodwill, they are a shit company that pays shit
    and uses community service to avoid having to employee people full time.
    I used to work there and they had guys busting their asses in 100+
    degree backroom for years part-time so they have to have a second or
    third job. They use community service as free labor so they never have
    to give anyone full time. Oh, and they almost never promote white
    people, just saying.

  2. HELP A GIRL OUT—————————————————————-

  3. This would probably be a wise site to check out regarding donations

  4. I don't get that piece of paper that they give you all they do is just sign their initials and that's it but it doesn't say anything else about how much you gave or even what time or day. But I wanted to know do they even wash the clothes before they put it in the store? Anyone

  5. Job sucks balls I would quit if I could, Its not entirely bad I mean you get to sit around but it still gets busy as fuck on Saturdays at our truck, I'm just glad I only have to work two days a week on weekends or I would go insane!!

  6. Dont give to the good will give to the Salvation army instead if possible. The biggest scam of all time. Not only do they rip 
    their employs off by not even paying them minimum wage but they also have an online auction
    where they rip the public off with shipping charges. I bought a Guitar from their auction from Orange County  Ca 
    store. You have the choice of shipping or picking an item up. Shipping was $33  to ship the guitar 40 miles. They go
    dimensional weight and they came to the conclusion that it weighed 70 dimensional LBS. Funny because 
    I came to see it only weighed 28 Dim lbs  so did UPS. So scamed me for the shipping cost of 42 Dimensional LBS. But to 
    make sure you dont pick an item up and you have it shipped ( so they can over charge you on shipping ) 
    they have an 8 week waiting list to pick up an item. that right 8 weeks. You have to schedule an appt and wait
    8 weeks to pick up the item you bought on line but they can ship it to you that day. I bought a guitar From Texas
    good will and had it shipped and it only cost 26 dollars. So not all the good wills are in on the Shipping scam. 
    I will make a video and show proof of how they are ripping people off for the stuff they get for free that we give them. 
    They do nothing good with the money they make from the Items we give them. They say they create jobs 
    Well I looked and could only find that the only jobs they create are jobs for disabled people to work at the good 
    will and they rip them off.  Unlike the Salvation Army where it was easy to see the good they were doing. 
    good will is a Major scam. Even when you go in a buy clothes they charge $10 -15 dollars for jeans 
    as where the salvation army sells them for $5 go figure. Dont believe me do a little looking you 
    will see what I see. 

  7. So if I donate a "hugo boss" dress shirt it will only be $12? Or a "Brook Brothers" suit it will only be $30? The math isnt all that its crack up to be..humm
