Goodwill Industries launched a new project yesterday called The Donate Movement that encourages people to get rid of unused items in their homes to help their communities and the environment. My friend and professional organizer Lorie Marrero is the spokesperson for the new initiative, and you may have already seen her commercial:

Anything to encourage the donation of useful items to charity is a great initiative in my book. I hope Goodwill’s new project gets people to evaluate their stuff and make room for what really matters in their lives.
