Celebrate The International Day Of Peace With A Car Donation

September 21, 2014

A car donation may not seem like much, but it’s an incredibly kind and generous gesture that could help to make a difference in the life of a child. A car donation can help to provide hope, strength and joy during a time in a child’s life where they are faced with difficult adult situations. Many children are forced to go through things that no person should ever have to, such as the diagnosis of a critical illness. Thankfully, Make-A-Wish helps to grant the wishes of children who needed to grow up a little sooner than expected. 

Make A Difference On The International Day Of Peace

If you are still looking for a way to give back on the International Day of Peace, or maybe you have a car to recycle or dispose of, consider donating a car, truck, boat, motorcycle, camper, or SUV to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish. Your car donation makes the world a better place in a few different ways:

  • Your vehicle donation helps to make a wish come true for a child in your community

  • Vehicle donation is green and eco-friendly, your vehicle will be recycled and reused instead of ending up in a landfill

  • Nearly every car part can be recycled and reused

  • Donating a car is an incredible gesture and could mean the world to a child

Sept. 21 is the United Nations’ International Day of Peace, and everyone who hopes for a better world is asked to participate. Car donation could be the perfect opportunity for you to create a peaceful community. If you would like to make a car donation, simply call 1-855-278-9474 or fill out an online car donation form today.

The World Needs You On Sept. 21
