The clothes donated will be collected and sold at Goodwill with the profits going to the company’s employment programs, which helps people with disabilities and other challenges find jobs. So it’s win/win, in addition the revenue will also go towards providing child care services, education and youth mentoring.
At press time Beyonce said of the campaign, “I am excited to team up once again with Goodwill in supporting their efforts in finding and creating jobs for families in need.”

Pitbull will be ringing in the new year with a fresh scent. The Miami rapper will unveil his new fragrance, named after himself on Dec. 31.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, the 32-year-old artist will present his men’s and women’s scents at his New Year’s Eve show in his hometown at the American Airlines Arena.
In his interview with WWD Pitbull said of his new uni-sex fragrance, “When we started talking about it, it was about very sexy smells. The woman can wear the men’s cologne and the man can wear the women’s perfume. I love to mix [men’s and women’s fragrances] up and see what kind of people you attract…I am a walking focus group.
I think that a soft, sexy sensual scent isn’t what people are going to expect from me. The innovative part of that is when you have a man who comes with a scent which I would say is more womanly, I think that’s innovative, especially when you have a man who will admit it.”
The women’s fragrance has notes of raspberries, jasmine, vanilla and musk, while the men’s version smells like an sage, rich tonka bean, musk and amber. The fragrances will be packaged in tall bottles shaped by the skyscrapers the rapper saw while traveling to exotic locations like Malaysia, Dubai and Shanghai. Depending on the size, prices range from $30-$55.

George Zimmerman was arrested AGAIN yesterday afternoon (November 18th) by Seminole County Police were he remains in custody without bail. According to police reports officers responded to a 911 call at about 1 p.m. TMZ reports that the disturbance was in fact a domestic violence case involving Zimmerman and his pregnant girlfriend 27-year old Samantha Scheibe.
Scheibe told the 911 dispatchers Zimmerman had a shotgun, an AR-15 rifle and two handguns in her home. Authorities said 30-year old Zimmerman assaulted and pushed his girlfriend out of her Florida home at gunpoint and then barricaded the door with furniture. Shortly afterward he ironically, called 911 claiming his girlfriend had gone nuts and started smashing things.
Meanwhile his wife, Shellie Zimmerman, filed for divorce in August. Later that month she admitted to NBC’s “Today” that she doubts her husband was innocent in the Trayvon Martin killing. As pay back, in late October Zimmerman nailed a marksman target with 17 bullet holes to a wall in her parent’s house. Those photos surfaced on RadarOnline.
Since his acquittal, Zimmerman has been arrested twice and pulled over three times. By the way, law enforcement sources say that due to Scheibe’s pregnancy, the domestic violence charge will automatically be a felony.
