Put your stuff back to work!

This is the title of the Goodwill’s new public service advertisements (PSAs) for the US aiming to encourage people #DonateStuffCreateJobs.

You might have heard of Goodwill (or Goodwill Industries International, Inc.), a network of 164 independent non-profit charitable organizations governed by a voluntary board of directors, operating in the United States, Canada and 13 other countries including South Korea, Venezuela, Brazil and Italy. Goodwill’s mission is to provide job training, employment placement and other community-based services for all job seekers (yourth, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities and other specialized needs) who face employment challenges by selling donated clothing and household goods to Goodwill Retail Stores and shop online. 👠🎸💻

To spread the word about its concept Goodwill in partnership with the Ad Council and ad agency VML  New York that created this project pro bono, have launched a new PSA campaign showing people that everybody can do the best to help those in need. It makes all the difference with a simple action.

In the spot you can see a series of images that shows miniature figurines in action that are occupied in a variety of skilled jobs, alongside life-size donated items that can help fund job training and placement opportunities in your community. The spot ends with the tagline, “Donate Stuff. Create Jobs.” and direct you to visit Goodwill website to find the nearest Goodwill donation center.

I find this initiative great. The best thing we all can do is help others reach their dreams. What do you think of it? 😉
