#GoodwillDate: You and your significant other have planned this night for weeks. You need a candle-lit dinner or a night out to revive your relationship. You are not alone if you are feeling a little grey; statistically, most couples break up the first two weeks after Valentine’s Day.

So, to keep your relationship fresh, spunky, and fun, Goodwill has a “pre-date” idea for you and your other half!

My mom and dad went on their first date in February 1990. Twenty-six years later, they went on their first #GoodwillDate! The rules are as follows:

  • With a $10 budget, select an outfit for your significant other.

  • The catch: it is rude to decline a gift, so you must wear that outfit on your date. It is the right thing to do.

Back to ma and pops:

Mom left with a cute dress jacket, a purple chunky necklace and a pink clutch. She was tickled pink. Dad sported a dress coat, a Tommy Hilfiger tie and a University of Kentucky baseball cap. Obviously, his outfit was matchy-matchy.

Love is in the air, and warm weather is in the forecast! Make your date night a #GoodwillDate, because nothing is more attractive than a thrifty find for a progressive cause!



our history

Goodwill Industries of Kentucky is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit headquartered in Louisville since 1923. Goodwill gives people up—not a handout—so they can experience the dignity and independence that comes from earning a paycheck.


our mission

We help people with disabilities or other disadvantages achieve and maintain employment to gain a better quality of life.

what we do

Goodwill collects and sells donated items to fund programs for Kentuckians who have disabilities or other challenges in finding and maintaining traditional employment. On-the-job training, job preparation skills, and employment counseling are just a few of Goodwill's services that benefit thousands of adults each year and strengthen families in Kentucky's communities.
