For Gifts That Give Back, Think Vehicle Donation

For gifts that give back, think about vehicle donation. If you are planning on getting rid of a used car find out about charitable car donations with this article from 1car1difference.


(NAPSI)—This holiday season, giving a generous gift doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. Instead, you can get on the road to giving joy by donating your old car. Vehicle donation is one gift option that’s sometimes overlooked, but, to charities, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

A recent donation behavior study found that nearly three out of four Americans have made charitable contributions in the last five years. Of these, 69 percent donated cash, 67 percent donated used goods and 47 percent donated their time.

According to the report, however, only 6 percent have ever donated a used vehicle and 76 percent of the rest said they never even considered doing so.

“Donating one car can generate enough cash to supply a month’s worth of food for a family of five or provide more than two years’ worth of generic drugs for a senior citizen,” said Pat Walsh, who oversees the national vehicle donation campaign, One Car One Difference. “That’s why we launched the One Car One Difference program: to help raise the public’s awareness about the ease and benefits of donating vehicles, and convert donated cars to much-needed funds for charities.”

The program’s partners, which include the National Kidney Foundation, The Humane Society of the United States, Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the American Heart Association, select chapters of Ronald McDonald House Charities, Boy Scouts of America and the Yellow Ribbon Registry Network, work closely with it to demonstrate the benefits of vehicle donation.

To donate your car or learn more, you can call (877) 557-1CAR or go to www.1car1difference.com.
