--This Year, Car Donation can Help Put the Giving Back in Thanksgiving--
NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- If your car is a turkey, Thanksgiving just may be the time to stuff it for good. Save sentiment for your family dinner and donate a car to the National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Cars Program. Funds raised through Kidney Cars, the nation's oldest and most trusted vehicle donation program, will help support life-saving efforts public education, patient services and early detection.
The donation process is a lot simpler than cooking a meal for 25 and you might actually be left with something more valuable than a sinkful of dishes— a tax deduction. All you need to do is visit www.kidneycars.org or call 1-800-488-CARS (2277) and the National Kidney Foundation will send out a packet, complete with a self-addressed envelope in which to mail back the signed title and odometer statement. Once the completed packet is received, the Foundation will contact donors to arrange for a free pick-up. Vehicles are sold either at auction or for parts.
"More than 80 percent of the proceeds of every car donated to Kidney Cars supports the work of the National Kidney Foundation. This is the highest of any charitable car donation program and we're proud that our Kidney Cars are truly life-saving vehicles," says Bruce Skyer, National Kidney Foundation CEO.
In the 30 years since its launch, Kidney Cars has received more than 700,000 used vehicles and generated $400,000,000 to support the National Kidney Foundation. For more information or to donate your car, van, truck or boat, call 1-800-488-CARS (2277) or donate online at www.kidneycars.org
