Giving Tuesday (#givingtuesday on social media), donate your car to make a difference this charitable season.
It is that time of year again where we hear bells ringing outside of our local grocery stores and shopping centers. The holiday season brings out a spirit in us that makes us want to help out the community and others in need. There are plenty of ways one can contribute to their charity of choice. This Giving Tuesday, we’d like you to take a minute to consider donating a car as a great way to support your favorite charity. Much to our pleasure, Car Donation Wizard receives almost double the amount of donations from Thanksgiving to Christmas than it does in an average month. This rise in car donations coincides with a movement called “Giving Tuesday”.
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!”
