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.

As a partner of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF we want to share their cause and the ways that you can help take action.  Follow this link to the UNICEF website for more information.

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

Finding a legitimate car donation program

Don’t get duped in the process of finding the most legitimate car donation program.

Don’t get duped! There are hundreds of car donation programs on the Internet making heartfelt appeals for vehicles, but only a small number of these programs actually make a difference to the charity.

Tips before you donate a car to charity:

>>Make sure the charity is an organization that you know and trust. There are thousands of organizations that accept car donations. Before you choose to donate, remember that all charities are not created equal. Look for an organization whose work you recognize as benefiting the community or the world. Be concerned about “charities” that have cute-sounding names or might sound similar to a charity you know (for example, Habitat for Humans instead of Habitat for Humanity).

>>Ask how much the charity will receive. The charity has a responsibility to best manage your vehicle donation. Ask how much of the gross proceeds will go back to the charity. If the organization will only list the percentage of net proceeds, then your car donation could be largely wasted. Several published reports have clearly established that most car donation programs return between 15 and 35% of the gross back to the charity, but they report it as 50 to 70% of the net. This could be the difference between the charity of your choice receiving $1,000 or $150 for your car donation. Car Donation Wizard returns between 75% and 80% of the GROSS from each auto donation back to the charity.
