March of Dimes Charity Spotlight

The first charity spotlight of 2019 is on a charity that supports families across the nation, by caring for moms and babies: March of Dimes. March of Dimes primarily fights premature birth, which affects 1 in 10 babies in the U.S. Keep reading to learn more about this amazing organization and the surprising way you can support them.

Most people are familiar with the wonderful work of March of Dimes, but did you know about the charity’s presidential origins?

President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s experience with polio spurred his decision to create the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. The charity pioneered the vaccine that eradicated polio in the US. The organization was later renamed to March of Dimes.

March of Dimes fights premature birth through a few key strategies: research, care innovation, advocacy, education and NCIUs. They are committed to supporting moms throughout their pregnancies, and babies as they grow.

The charity researches the causes of premature birth and birth defects. They also provide information to mothers and families on the dangers of these issues and how to avoid them. With local programs throughout the country, their resources are readily available to families nationwide.

Support March of Dimes with a Car Donation

A surprisingly simple and effective way to donate March of Dimes is by donating your car! When you donate a car through Car Donation Wizard, you can trust that you are helping your charity.
We ensure that the charity receives between 75-80% of the gross proceeds of the car’s sale. That’s more than any other car donation program out there. Not only do we make the process easy, but you can rest assured that your donation makes a difference.

All you need to do to get started is visit our website or give us a call at 888-898-1144. A local tow agency will reach out in about 2 business days to schedule a convenient pickup. After the car auctions, we will provide you with a tax receipt for the donation. It can be hard to say goodbye to an old car but know you’re saying hello to a future without premature birth.

Jumpstart the fight against premature birth with a car donation!

Charity Spotlight: Toys for Tots

The year is coming to a close, and we want to highlight a very special charity that brings toys to millions of children during the holiday season: Toys for Tots.

Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots Car Donation Program

United States Marines and local volunteers come together to support children all across the country. They ensure that everyone can share a smile and the joy of unwrapping a special gift.

The program started in 1947, has distributed 548 million toys to 251 million children. Toys for Tots has a simple mission: to collect new toys and distribute them to less fortunate children during Christmastime. The toys bring more than just fun, they bring hope.

To support the program, the U.S. Marine Corps created the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation in 1991. The Foundation assists with program services and support services that cannot be handled by the Marine Corps, as they are a federal agency.

They have hundreds of campaigns across the country and make it easy to give toys to children in your community. You can support the program by donating toys, volunteering, or even by donating your car, motorcycle, boat, or RV!

Toys for Tots Vehicle Donation

If you don’t have toys or time to spare, you can help support the mission by donating your vehicle through our Cars for Tots donation program. You can donate your car, motorcycle, boat, or RV.

This easy car donation process involves visiting our website or reaching us by phone at (877) 215-0227. After completing a simple form, you’ll hear from a local tow agency in about 2 business days. Your car will be picked up in no time, and we will provide a tax receipt for your donation.

Between 75-80% of the gross proceeds of the vehicle’s sale go directly to support Toys for Tots and make sure less fortunate children can enjoy a Merry Christmas.

Your donation will go a long way, especially because Car Donation Wizard makes sure of it. At least 75-80% of every gross dollar goes directly to your charity with our car donation program, the highest of any out there.

It’s quick and easy to make a vehicle donation, and a great way to support your favorite charity. All you need to do is provide basic information about the car you’d like to donate, either on our online form or over the phone at (888) 755-5435.
