Our Time at The Honda Fest 2016 Car Show.

Honda Fest was on June 12th, 2016 and I was lucky enough to be able to go with Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk. This is a family friendly event (this includes dogs). While there, I was able to hang out with some really cool people and dogs too, including: Honda Laura, Honda Pro Jason, and we can’t forget Honda The Frenchie.

Honda Pro Jason is known for his car reviews and car education videos on YouTube.

HondaTheFrenchie is known for being really cute on Instagram, I mean, who could resist that face? (see above)

There were so many amazing cars at this event. There was racing, food, cars, family/friends, and music. Is there really any better way to spend a beautiful Sunday?! There were older cars, newer cars and everything in between. Two of the older cars that really stood out to me were the Honda Acty truck and the older Honda Civic. There were also some cars that were completely stock and then some that were far from it. I highly suggest going to a Honda Fest at least once, even if you aren’t a huge Honda fan, you will still enjoy the whole scene. The people are all so friendly.

Have you ever gone to a car show? What is your favorite one?

Also, I just want to mention that we wanted to share this fun post with you all because we like to switch it up on occassion. Is this something that you enjoy seeing? Should we do more of these in the future? We typically write about Car Donations or Vehicle donations, so I figured it would be nice to change up our usual posts.

Holocaust Stamp Project: Foxborough RCS & CDW

We were lucky enough to have been able to go to the Foxborough Regional Charter School to see the Holocaust Stamp Project Event.

They had a guest speaker Michael Joukowsky. Michael Joukowsky is the President of Crawford High Performance Composites Ltd., specializing in composite technology and design. He is also the co-founder and manager of Resolute Racing Shells, Ltd. in Bristol Rhode Island.  He manages several private investment companies involved in acquisitions and mergers, real estate and mortgage acquisition, as well as a private family investment and advisory firm. From 1987 to 2015 Michael has been a member of the Brown University Adjunct Faculty, Engineering Department. He holds bachelor’s degrees in history and African-American studies from Brown University and a MBA from Babson College. He discussed his families’ life and had talked about the struggles they went threw. He also spoke about the movie Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War (which is narrated by Tom Hanks) to read more about the movie click here: http://www.uusc.org/updates/this-fall-pbs-documentary-about-uuscs-founders

After Michael Joukowsky had finished his speech, we were able to create a little tiny stamp person that will be used on the “I Am the Last Witness” collage. It was amazing to be able to be a part of something so moving. Our company contributes many stamps to them, we don’t have an exact count sadly, but we can say it is at least a few boxes full. Their goal is to collect 11,000,000 stamps. Their reason for such a high number is to honor the six million Jews and Five million other victims who perished during the Holocaust. The school uses these stamps to help teach children as well, so they serve a multipurpose. They also explain to the children that every stamp they touch represents a person’s life. That alone makes you realize how many people perished during the holocaust.

Now for the collages…

Each collage has a story behind it. They are all equally moving and they all have meaning. Some of these are still ideas and have not been created yet, but they are all done by students of all ages. You can either browse our photos here or take a peak at theirs by clicking here.

As of April 7, 2016, they have collected 7,102,027 stamps. These stamps will be a part of 18 collages. They have received stamps from all over the world, including: USA, Canada, Israel, England, and Australia. ~http://www.foxboroughrcs.org

Here is what just under 7,102,027 stamps looks like.

Car Donation Wizard: Connecting Donors to Charities

June 25, 2015
Guest Blogger: Amanda Nevitt

At Car Donation Wizard we bring donors and charities together. Every year we receive thousands of car donations from individuals who want to help their favorite cause. We are experts at helping donors make a big impact by turning their donated cars into cash.

In addition to individual cars, trucks and motorcycles, we receive a fair share of “fleet” vehicles, which is a group of motor vehicles owned by a business rather than an individual. We’ve received shuttle vans for hotels, to big box trucks from corporations. They are an important part of our business and make a big difference for the benefiting charity.

Companies on average keep their fleet vehicles for about five years; most are at the end of their life and not worth much on trade in. What’s a sensible way to extend the life of those vehicles? Donate them! Not only does the donating company receive a tax deduction, but it’s a great way to help build houses, find cures for diseases, protect animals, empower veterans, keep children healthy & safe…(insert your favorite cause here).

Are you ready to donate? Let us help you get the most money for your charity of choice. Click here to get started.

Car Donation Driven by Hope

There are 14.4 million cancer survivors in the United States1. That’s a BIG number!! But, some may ask, “How many people died of cancer?” Well, as one vehicle donor recently told me, “you can focus on the gloom, or the hope” and we’re focusing on the HOPE. After all, it’s why we’re in the business – taking vehicle donations for charities that work to make life better, healthier, fuller.

Recently, I was fortunate enough to speak with Beverly (Bella) Harris, one of the 14 million U.S. survivors. And, although I haven’t met all survivors, I can say she is the epitome of Hope. Bella bravely witnessed many loved ones battle cancer, some winning their fight while others did not. She also successfully endured her own battle and was left with more courage and Hope than she ever thought possible.

Once a bottom-line business woman, she was laid-off from her corporate job during her treatment. It was then she realized her dream of becoming an educator to special need students and discovered she now had the time to obtain that degree and certification. Today, Bella is completely dedicating her life to serving children with special needs and the families that love them.

Bella attributes her new life to her difficult health journey. She sees her struggle as a forced pause where instead of being scared she would lose life; she enveloped herself in the possibilities ahead of her and everything she could do when she was healed. She was granted that chance to continue and is now working harder than ever, but enjoying it more than she imagined. Because of her struggle, she is able to help her students and their families realize and attain what they might have seen as impossible. Bella is driven by Hope, and transfers to her students the Hope of development, empowerment, independence, and success. A gift she could not so fully share had it not been for her personal struggle.

Yes, she is fully aware that nothing about tomorrow is guaranteed, but instead of squandering today in fear, she does the most she can today. Our conversation put into perspective my own fears and worries…and how I am spending my time. It made me realize how paralyzing fear is…and that Hope is the perfectly fit prosthetic. Hope it what keeps us donating to support the search for cures, ways to heal, and comfort.

Throughout our conversation, Bella continued to comment on the beauty of life around her, and her gratitude for the chance to move forward and share her gifts. She pulled me into her world where I could feel her arsenal of Hope that includes strength, energy, power, and warmth.

Recently, as part of her arsenal of Hope, Bella donated her car to the American Cancer Society which was turned into valuable funding for cancer research, resources, and education. And, just like Bella, it WILL make a difference!
