A Porsche for The American Cancer Society

We have recently taken in a donated 1999 Porsche Boxster with only 23,553 miles for the American Cancer Society’s Cars For a Cure® Vehicle Donation Program. John and Ann of California were the original owners, and it was garaged for most of that time. We had the pleasure to speak with John about his donation. When asked why they chose the American Cancer Society, John responded,

“My Wife and I support a several causes which include higher education and health care. We are very active with hospitals in particular. We liked the idea that the American Cancer Society had more money going back to them rather than the lower percentages that we saw while doing research. American Cancer Society is an excellent cause, so it was an easy decision. We had talked about the different charities back and forth, and we felt that this car was a special car and should go to a special charity. It seemed like the perfect fit.”

The Porsche is their first vehicle donation to the American Cancer Society. John said he had regretted not knowing about the American Cancer Society’s vehicle donation program sooner. John spoke very highly of the effortless donation process; the representatives they spoke to were very pleasant and the couple are happy with the outcome.

When asked if they would donate a vehicle to the American Cancer Society again in the future and he said “Oh yes I would! It is now at the top of my list if I do it again in the future!”

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!
