Why Donate Your Car for Kids

Updated on May 26, 2013

Perhaps one of the most common adages that we oftentimes hear is “It is more blessed to give than to receive”. Saying these words is very easy, but applying them in our lives is very difficult especially in the challenging economic times we are in right now. However, it can’t be denied that giving selflessly to other people, especially to unfortunate kids, is one of the best feelings in the world. If you’re looking to fill the void in your heart and somehow make your life more meaningful, then consider donating to charities.

There are many ways that you can donate or give to unfortunate kids. One effective way is by giving your time. You can join an organization with a worthy cause and become a volunteer. Alternatively, you can donate money. This may sound cliché but any amount would do as long as it is given from the heart. At the end of the day, your actions or, in this case, donations are not judged by the quantity of what you’ve given but with the quality of your intentions.

You can also donate some of your used items such as clothes, books, and the like to charities. Better yet, why not donate your car for kids? This is the perfect alternative for supporting a worthy cause if you’re too busy to volunteer or if you’re so tight on finances right now to make any financial donation. Donating a car will go a long way in helping save and change the lives and future of unfortunate children.

Donate Your Car for Kids: One of the Best Ways to Make a Difference

Car donation has been practiced for so many years now, however, only a few people truly know the impact it can bring to the lives of little children. When you donate your car, you’re helping various charities and organizations carry out life-changing programs.

For instance, a non-profit organization in Australia called Kids Under Cover use the financial assistance they get from car donation to help homeless young people or those who are at risk of being homeless. They build homes for these homeless young children and provide them with mentors and scholarships to help them further their education. Non-profit organizations, such as Kids Under Cover, help unfortunate children stay away from criminal activities that could ruin their lives.

American Children's Society

Another nonprofit that uses money from car donation to carry out life-changing programs for unfortunate kids is the American Children’s Society. Their primary aim is to improve the quality of life of those children suffering from cancer. This organization cooperates with other nonprofits, medical centers, and hospitals to determine those families that are financially incapable of providing their kids with the medical treatments they need. Their support goes beyond hospital bills. They also assist the families with household, transportation, and equipment expenses.

It is sad to know that it is estimated that more than 35 children daily are diagnosed with cancer. But with your car donation, there is hope for them.

UNICEF

Of course, one international non-profit organization that funds their life-saving programs through car donation is UNICEF. When you donate your car, UNICEF will use the money to fund various programs that could save the lives of millions of children in underdeveloped countries. Items such as birthing kits, vaccines, and even portable school-in-a-box kits become available through money and car donation. Isn’t it great to know that you are one of the reasons why a child somewhere in Africa is alive and healthy because you decided to donate your car for kids? Through UNICEF, not only do you save one child’s life but you save millions.

Donating a car may not seem such a noble act. But it will definitely make a difference in the lives of unfortunate children.
