Omaha’s Goodwill Industries, Inc., is celebrating Valentine’s Day with the #GoodwillDateNight Challenge! The Goodwill Date Night (inspired by real events at a local Florida Goodwill) encourages shoppers to get creative and a little wild with a special someone this Valentine’s Day. Haven’t heard of #GoodwillDateNight? Check out all the posts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

Now, grab your honey, your roomie, your bestie, your best frenemy, or favorite pal and prepare for an outrageous night on the town!

How It Works

STEP 1: The contest is open to couples in the Goodwill Omaha territory, including Omaha, Fremont, Gretna, Blair, Papillion and Bellevue, Nebraska, and Council Bluffs, Iowa. Each person buys an outfit for their partner at a local Goodwill Omaha retail store. Set a maximum outfit budget of $20 per person, and use no more than that amount choosing an outfit for your partner. Make sure to take photos or video of your shopping spree!

STEP 2: You and your partner must then wear the Goodwill outfits you purchased for each other to a night out (in public). Maybe you’ll go to dinner and movie, or you could go bowling or to a show at the theater.

STEP 3: Document your date night with photos or videos, and then share them on Goodwill Omaha’s “#GoodwillDateNight Valentine’s Day Challenge” Facebook Event page no later than Feb. 17, 2020.

STEP 4: On or near March 1, 2020, Goodwill Omaha’s Retail Operations Team will judge qualifying entries on their use of wild, over-the-top style and how well they documented their shopping trip and date night, as well as their incorporation of the Goodwill brand/mission and store images. The judges will choose three finalist couples.

STEP 5: Goodwill Omaha will post the finalists on our “#GoodwillDateNight Valentine’s Day Challenge” Facebook Event page and open voting to our followers. The couple with the greatest combination of Likes, Loves, Laughs and Wows during the voting period will win.

STEP 6: If you’re a finalist, check this landing page, our Facebook posts and your Facebook Messenger on or around March 5, 2020, to see if you’ve won.

The Prize Package

As if all that fun wasn’t reward enough, the winning #GoodwillDateNight couple gets prizes!
