National Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Today awareness is being raised around social media and news sites about the prevalence that human trafficking has around the world.  January was proclaimed National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month by President Barack Obama in 2014.  According to UNICEF USA an estimated 21 million people are victim to human trafficking and forced labor.  This includes about 5.5 million children.

One way that you can help is by choosing to donate a car or cars for charity.  Believe it or not your old vehicle that’s sitting in the driveway taking up space is not completely worthless.  The impact of your car donations to UNICEF may be much more than you realize.  The average amount raised by a vehicle donation through Car Donation Wizard is $542.

In 2016 hundreds of people decided to donate a car to charity and picked UNICEF as the charity they wanted to support.  One of the top car donations in the year came out of Colorado.  A 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee with over 125,000 hard earned miles was donated and raised a lot of money for the charity.

The brand Jeep, originally produced for the military in 1941, when they decided they needed a new lightweight, cross-country reconnaissance vehicle.  By the end of the second World War over 600,000 Jeeps were ordered for use.  Flash forward to 1974 and Jeep Motors debuted what would become the most popular model in history, the Cherokee.  In 1992, Jeep presented a brand new model, the Grand Cherokee.  This model quickly gained popularity among car enthusiasts.¹
