Goodwill and Politics

These great ads for Goodwill take some fun pokes at the U.S. Presidential candidates, while at the same time promote their mandate. Here's a quote from the letter they submitted with the ads:
"As a reminder, Goodwill is inclusive, apolitical and non-religious - we just like to take advantage of the dialogue out there to move forward our own mission: Goodwill creates solutions to poverty through the businesses we operate. When people donate to Goodwill, they fund our core mission of providing job training programs for those who have barriers to employment. In tough economic times, it is often the working poor and their families as well as those living on the edge who suffer most. Goodwill is dedicated to empowering them with the skills they need to succeed in today's challenging economy. We thank all of those whose donations help us to achieve this goal."
P.S. $150,000 in clothing. Holy crap! Sounds like tractor trailer loads, but sadly... it probably isn't.
