US Fund for UNICEF

UNICEF is the acronym for the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, created by the UN after World War II. Their first mission was to directly remedy the lack of security, food, and healthcare faced by children in war-torn countries.

Today, UNICEF is active in over 190 countries and territories worldwide, caring for children and youths who are in need.

Conflict tends to most hurt the already vulnerable, especially children. UNICEF works in areas of crisis to fight trafficking and military conscription. We are in the midst of an unprecedented refugee crisis, and almost 50 million children have been displaced.  UNICEF aided more than 145,000 displaced children in Syria in the first half of 2012. The impact of this organization worldwide is monumental.

UNICEF also focuses on everyday struggles, including a lack of access to clean water, vaccines, and proper nutrition. Their humanitarian programs have helped reduce the number of child deaths by over 50% since 1990 — and they are not done.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! This time of year is good for more than just candy and pumpkin carving, it’s also a major fundraiser for UNICEF! You might be familiar with the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign, but do you know about making a UNICEF car donation? Find out this unexpected way you can support this incredible charity!

The Trick-or-Treat UNICEF started in 1950 when a small group of thoughtful children went trick or treating looking not for candy, but coins for children in need overseas. The first year, they raised a total of $17. Since that first Halloween, participants have raised almost $177 million dollars for children worldwide.

If you see any pint-size trick or treaters out tonight with orange boxes, know that they are doing their part to make a global difference!

A donation of 50 cents can provide a packet of therapeutic food for a malnourished child. Donating $1 can provide a polio vaccine. A donation of $2 can provide 10 bars of soap that help keep kids clean and healthy. It doesn’t take much to make a difference, and donations of all sizes add up to make a life-saving difference.

Learn more about this program through the following video:


If you’re inspired by the fantastic work of UNICEF, consider donating your vehicle to further the cause. Your UNICEF car donation will be simple and quick and can be started over the phone by calling  1-855-487-3863 or by visiting our website.

Habitat for Humanity Car Donation Feature

1986 Alfa Romeo Graduate

The latest featured Habitat for Humanity car donation in the spotlight here is a 1986 Alfa Romeo Graduate.  When you think about donating a car you may not realize there are some pretty special antique and exotic vehicles donated.

When you donate a car to charity you are usually contributing to the auto recycling industry – one of the largest industries in the U.S.  More than 80% of a car is recycled or reused so most most car donations impact the environment in a positive way.  If that wasn’t reason enough to consider donating a car you are also contributing to an amazing non-profit!

Chop Top Challenge Car Donated to Charity

Teams in the 2018 Chop Top Challenge embarked from Chicago, Illinois and headed South for New Orleans, Louisiana. Cars in the Chop Top Challenge have had the tops chopped and windshields cut off of the vehicles making it a crazy drive as they take on their interstate challenge. Along the way, teams were asked to participate in different challenges to earn points. These challenges were not announced to the teams until they left Chicago, making them think on their feet and have some fun! Based on social media, it looks like that is exactly what they did, check some of the action out on Instagram at #choptopchallenge.

This year, the Chop Top creators brothers, Luke and Joe’s, sister and team piloted a 1993 Toyota Previa in the Chop Top Challenge. They donated the car to charity at the end of their stay in New Orleans. Thanks to their generous donation this mini van will be donated to WWNO public radio in New Orleans. Reusable parts will be taken from the vehicle and the rest will be recycled for scrap metal. After a fun rally race this team is also helping out the environment by recycling their car! I heard from Luke about some of his sisters highlights of this years 2018 Chop Top Challenge and here’s what he said: 

“The girls chopped the roof and windshield on Friday evening and then left Chicago Saturday morning. They braved a snow storm right out of Chicago, got Chop Top Challenge tattoos, and made it to New Orleans on Monday night. Tuesday night they led a parade down Bourbon street, complete with a 5 piece brass band playing from inside the vehicle.”

 

We are thrilled with this teams decision to donate their car to charity. When you donate a vehicle to a National Public Radio station of your choice, you actually turn your car into the community programming you love. WWNO will be able to turn the car donation into financial support for the local and national programming you trust and depend on. To learn more about the 2018 Chop Top Challenge visit them at the Chop Top Challenge website or follow them on Instagram at @choptopchallenge. To find out how to donate your car visit us today at www.cardonationwizard.com or call one of Car Donation experts today! We look forward to the 2019 Chop Top Challenge!
