I’ve always said that if I were ever in the position to do so, I would donate something far larger than the dollars I donate already - such as a house or even a car. For those of you in a position to do this, there is a non-profit, Christian organization called Car Angel that provides a way for you to Donate a Car (or even boats and houses) , which then will help orphaned children, widows, single mothers, the poor and the needy. Anyone nationwide can donate through their towing service and it won’t cost you a penny. If you have an automobile that is in need of repairs or simply isn’t running, they can and will use it (some restrictions apply). They’ll even handle all of the transfers, releases and any other paperwork that has to be done.
Donations fund programs like literacy and education around the world. Donations also fund fun projects like Free Children's DVDs, such as The Adventures of Donkey Ollie.
Some of the benefits of a Car Angel, Car Donations are: A deduction on your taxes, not having to worry about selling you used car or dealing with the task of transfers or other paperwork and of course the ultimate benefit of helping someone in need.
I hope that some day I donate a Car to carangel.com for helping others!
