World Mental Health Day

Today, October 10, is World Mental Health Day. This day was created by the World Health Organization, to raise awareness about mental illness.

This year, the main focus is on “Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World.”

According to the WHO, half of all mental illness begins by the age of 14. The world is changing quickly, and the World Health Organization realizes that the way we view and treat mental illness needs to change, as well.

Stigma around mental health issues can prevent individuals from seeking treatment, or from sharing their feelings with those around them. One in five American adults experiences mental illness in their lifetime.

WHO wants to change the way we perceive, discuss, treat, and even prevent mental illness by focusing on the youth.NAMI

NAMI

We are proud to work with the National Alliance on Mental Illness(NAMI). They are a national organization that focuses on grassroots organization. Why? To ensure local voices of people living with mental illnesses are the focus.

When you donate your car to NAMI, the benefit will stay local, and therefore help uplift your own community.

In honor of World Mental Health Day, consider donating your vehicle to NAMI. We keep the process simple, and between 75-80% of the proceeds will go to support your local branch of NAMI.

If you have any questions, give us a call at 877-215-0227.

1976 Volkswagen Beetle

The Volkswagen Beetle  truly an iconic car, and this ’76 model has a quirkier frame than we are used to seeing nowadays. The Beetle holds the record for the first model ever to sell 20 million units and was the most popular Volkswagon until 2002.

Even crazier, this car is the size of a blue whale heart (and possibly the same color)!

Happy National Name Your Car Day!

donate car

Don’t be shy about naming your car, it turns out that 42% of drivers name their car! This data comes from a 2018 National Name your Car Day Survey, commissioned by the GM BuyPower card.

The most common names for cars are Betty and Betsy! 6% of all respondents had named their vehicles one of those two names.

This one wasn’t in the survey, but the best car name I’ve ever heard was a friend’s old Buick, lovingly named Simon and Carfunkel.

At least 66%of all cars are at least 5 years old, and over 60% of drivers would like to buy or lease a new car in the next 3 years.

If you’re not sure what to do with your Betty, Betsy, or Carfunkel once you upgrade your vehicle, we can help! Donating your car to charity is a great way to support the charities you love the most, and it’s easier to part with a friend if you know their future is good.

If you have any questions, check out our website or give us a call at 877-215-0227!
