Valentine's Day is coming up and love isn't in the air for everyone.

The Goodwill has come up with an anti-Valentine's Day campaign that is both funny and effective.

They are telling people to dump their ex's stuff at their stores instead of throwing the stuff away or burning it.

Apparently, it is a very effective campaign. A spokesperson for Goodwill told 13 Action News that they definitely see a bump in donations in the days leading up to Valentine's Day.

"For me it was a relief because I didn't really want to be with this person no more and finally I got rid of him and I ended up bringing his stuff to Goodwill," said Marisol Mota.

Megan Gray also donated her ex-boyfriend's clothes.

"Some people like to burn ex's clothes. I don't want to keep them," she said. "There's no reason they should just go to waste."

It's not just clothes. One time, someone even donated a diamond ring.
