This month, here in Kansas City, a group of local professional organizers worked on a GO Month project together. We join together to organize for a cause.

GO “Get Organized” Month 2012 was a big success.

Nine local professional organizers got together and partnered with Goodwill, Habitat ReStore, ProShred and Harvesters! The highlights…

People donated food and filled the two buckets above PLUS gave $577 in cash donations!

20 cars donated to the Habitat ReStore’s truck…

Many cars (80+) donated to Goodwill…

I learned so much about Goodwill and the work that they do! First, that they have wonderful people working for them! Joyce, Wendy, Larry, Felicien, and all the rest were so happy! They want your donations!! They sell cloth by the bale so there is NO reason to throw out any kind of fabric like old socks, rags, etc. into the landfills! They recycle metal. They WANT those things! Also, please bring them all of your old (working or not working) electronics. Here is a car load that was dropped off!

And, some more details about their electronics programs…

The Kansas City mayor, Sly James, signed a proclamation.

January is officially GO Month!

ProShred had the most awesome guys working. JR and Ira made it fun! They shredded about 4000 pounds of paper and had 82 cars come through.

Wes Edwards, from Transitions Photography, was there taking all the photos. He even held the signs for awhile! He is the one that took our amazing family photos, too! Check them out here!

It was a cold day…32 degrees. But, it was wonderful hanging out and serving the community!
