The Social Good: Influencer Campaign

What better way to showcase Goodwill purchases than with avid Goodwill shoppers? Those who love the thrill of the hunt and search high and low for a diamond in the rough are perfect examples of why more people should shop there. We connected with eight local influencers to chat about their favorite piece they’ve found at Goodwill and why they go back on a constant basis. Read their answers below and check out more of our campaigns with Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana here!

“I was really drawn to the pattern of this skirt, I’ve been trying to step out of my comfort zone of neutrals. I work in a school environment and I find that the kids are drawn to patterns when I wear things that are a little more fun.”
