Who doesn't love a good bargain? There's nothing like the high you feel discovering an amazing find. For one Martinsville, Indiana family, they found more than they intended to, and the result is hilarious! It all started with an accidental donation.

This family 100% has my sense of humor, and I'm here for it! Do you donate to Goodwill? They have hundreds of thousands of unique items at thrift store prices. It's so much fun to find some great treasures. Sydney Mathers got a bit more than she bargained for after finding a speedo with her brother-in-law's face on it! After she uploaded the story to social media, the comments became priceless.

Brooklyn Welty has a fun sense of humor. She had her husband's face put onto a bathing suit a while back. That hilarious suit made its way to the local Goodwill store when she dropped off some donations by accident. The rest is history!

"I went to Goodwill today and found my brother-in-law on a swimsuit!
I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard in my entire life."

Omg…you did not donate him! - Kristina Frazee

Here's to hoping her husband has a great sense of humor about all of this!

Have you ever donated something by accident?

Donating unwanted items to Goodwill is a great way to donate to a good cause and make space in your home. Unfortunately, there are things they can't use. Here's a list of items they wish you wouldn't donate.


Sometimes the nature or condition of items, or something that doesn't meet safety standards is a reason your donated items won't be accepted at Goodwill. When they receive items that cannot be sold, staff must dispose of them, which takes time and space. That said, here's a list of items that are NOT accepted.
