Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be exclusive to those rare couples who are actually in love with each other. We should all be able to celebrate this Sunday, even those damaged people still jamming out to old Taylor Swift songs in their bedroom.
Goodwill stores in Florida are trying to take advantage of your broken heart. They have put together a clever anti-Valentine’s Day campaign called “Donate Your Ex’s Stuff.”
Basically, if you’re tired of looking at the box containing all of your ex’s sh-t they left behind at your house, this is the perfect opportunity to do something good with it.
We know you wanted to set it on fire, but this is more fulfilling and less dangerous!
Kelly Davis Strausbaugh, marketing and public relations coordinator for Goodwill, told ABC News the following…
“Instead of throwing items away, they can donate to Goodwill and help turn them into jobs. We don’t like break-ups but this is a way to make it a little more fun and tongue-in-cheek.”
The campaign doesn’t officially begin until the day after Valentine’s Day (Feb. 15) but you can spend Sunday evening gathering up the items while sipping on a few boxes of wine.
Apparently, this campaign was started back in 2010 at a Goodwill store in Pennsylvania. It’s now spread to several locations including Florida and Southern Nevada.
