That’s right; it’s time to have a green Independence Day! You can still celebrate red, white and blue in style, but what if you knew how important it was to live as eco-friendly as possible, especially on the holidays? The United States produces 70 percent of the world’s solid waste and 80 percent of the products used in the United States are used once and then thrown away. You can add a little green to July 4, a day filled with red, white and blue, with just a few of our eco-friendly tips.

July is National Sarcoma Awareness Month, and because sarcoma is so common in childhood, it is important to know the signs and symptoms. Thankfully, Make-A-Wish helps to grant the wishes of children with sarcoma and other medical conditions so that children and their families can partake in a life-changing event to bring them hope and strength once again.
If you would like to play a part in helping to grant a wish for a child with sarcoma this July during National Sarcoma Awareness Month, consider a car donation to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish.

The American flag is one of the most recognizable symbols of our freedom. June 14 is a day that’s set aside just for our flag and for reflecting on what it represents. America has had an official flag since 1777, but it’s gone through many changes since then. The one thing that hasn’t changed, though, is that our flag represents our national pride and freedom. Because Flag Day falls on a Saturday this year, we’ve compiled a list of children’s books all about our flag and our country that you can read together as a family once the day’s activities wind down.

For many people, the decision to make a donation to a charitable cause is an easy one. If you don’t have enough extra income to make charitable contributions, however, there is still a simple way that you can make a significant contribution to Make-A-Wish. If you’ve got a car that no longer runs or if it’s time to upgrade to a better vehicle, donating your old car can be an easy decision.
There are many options for people when it comes to replacing an old vehicle. Selling it yourself or trading it in can be stressful if you don’t know its fair-market value or you need to make repairs to it first. Selling a broken down car to a scrap yard can be difficult too. The cost of towing it to the yard may not balance out the payment you’ll get from selling it for scrap metal.
With all that in mind, it’s good to know that there is an easier alternative to all the stress of haggling with buyers on the price, towing the car yourself, or worrying that a dealer isn’t giving you a fair price.
