The Reel Life: Rare art edition
17 Jan 2013
According to a Yahoo! News story, someone dropped off a Giovanni Battista Torriglia painting worth between $12,000 and $18,000 in one of its donation bins.
The Reel Life is guessing the owner of this painting had no idea how valuable it was. But a Goodwill employee thought it might be valuable and set it aside. Goodwill is now auctioning off the painting to raise money for its job-training program.
According to the story, this isn't the first time Goodwill has accidentally (presumably) ended up with a famous piece of art. Last year, a Seattle Goodwill location found a sketch by Salvador Dali at a donation center.
There's an important lesson here. And it's not that Goodwill is really good at spotting valuable art. It's that the next time you donate something to charity, double-check to make sure you're not giving away something valuable. There's nothing wrong with giving away something valuable. But you'll feel a whole lot better about yourself if you did it on purpose.
