Blogger Event at Goodwill Boston

Last Thursday, we invited some Boston bloggers to get a sneak peek “behind the Wizard’s curtain” of Goodwill HQ in Boston and to learn more about why Goodwill, founded in Boston in 1895, is our absolute favorite charity to partner with for all the clothing leftover at our swaps.
