Random Acts of Genius

Check out this story... For Canadian readers, Goodwill is a non-profit organization which accepts donations of clothing and other goods and sells them at reasonable prices to less affluent shoppers.

Until now: in DC, they have people sifting through the clothing, looking for vintage apparel, which is very much in vogue these days, in the eyes of affluent shoppers. These hidden gems are sold on an online auction site for big bucks, which is then invested back into Goodwill.

I live very near a Goodwill here in Calgary, and thought I would check it out as I needed a cheap top for work. It was so expensive! I love that the money is for a good charity, but the golf shirt I was looking at was the same price as a new one from WalMart. I'm not sure which part of that is worse.

In NY, the last sentence would have ended at "...are sold on an online auction site for big bucks."
