Goodwill Industries was founded more than 100 years ago, factually in 1902 and Edgar J. Helms had its establishment on his conscience. He started that he collected used clothing and households in wealthier part of city and brought them to the poor part - there he afterwards taught poor people how to fix these things. Once these things have been repaired, he sold it and gave the gained money to them who repaired them. This is the way how Helms laid the foundations of today´s organization that operates in 16 countries worldwide and has become a $4 billion nonprofit organization. At present, the aim of Goodwill Industries is to enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals and families by strengthening communities, eliminating barriers to opportunity, and helping people in need. Last year, Goodwill Industries was able to help nearly 10 million people. Anyone, who has the opportunity and wants to participate in this charity, has the opportunity to do it through any of their branches or their websites.
