Did you know that February 17 is Random Act of Kindness Day? In the spirit, luggage company Briggs & Riley (a personal favorite) is running its fifth-annual “A Case for Giving” program throughout the month of February.
Here’s how it works: If you have a spare/old/etc. piece of rolling luggage you’d like to donate, you simply bring it to a participating luggage store sometime before February 28. Once you’ve turned it in, you’ll receive a credit that you can put toward a new Briggs & Riley bag. For an old Briggs & Riley bag, you’ll get a $100 credit, while all other brands of bags will earn you a $50 credit.
The program benefits more than 100 charity partners including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Salvation Army and Goodwill, as well as local foster homes, women’s shelters, coalitions for the homeless, and more. Last year more than 1,500 pieces of gently used luggage were given to those in need.
For more information, including where you can drop off a bag, see the program page here.
