Happy Birthday Dr Seuss

There is no question that kids love Dr. Seuss’ clever and creative stories that combine rhymes with silly characters. March 2nd is the perfect time to get your favorite Dr. Seuss books out and read them to a child in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

Another great way to let a child’s imagination run wild is with a car donation to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish. If you have a vehicle to donate, you can get rid of it by donating it through our Make-A-Wish Car Donation program, which could give a local child an opportunity to visit Seuss Landing at Islands of Adventure in Orlando, or do anything else a child might wish to do!

In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, our biggest wish is that kids will receive the opportunities to simply be kids, and sitting down to read a Dr. Seuss book is the perfect way to bring out the inner-kid in all of us.

Be Kind During The 13th Annual Random Acts Of Kindness Week

February is popularly a month devoted to love, candy, and hearts, but there’s a full week in February that allows you to be extra kind to everyone around you, and not only to your Valentine. The week of February 11th-17th isn’t just a normal week in February with Valentine’s Day mixed in, but it’s actually an entire week dedicated to expressing random acts of kindness for everyone all over the world! It’s an event that everyone can participate in.

To help raise awareness about the importance of being kind, February 11th-17th marks the 13th Annual Random Acts of Kindness Week, started by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation in 1995. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is committed to spreading the message about the importance of kindness.

While it is encouraged that a person should practice random acts of kindness 365 days a year, the week of February 11th-17th is the perfect way to kick off a new routine, perhaps even starting with a car donation to Wheels For Wishes.

Reuse Your Decorations And Recycle Your Holiday Cheer For The Following Year

Old vehicles are the perfect thing to recycle during the holiday months. Not only do you get an excellent tax deduction for the same tax year if you make your online donation before 12 A.M. local time on January 1st, but you are helping a local child receive a magical wish experience, and you are putting your old car to good use.

However, old vehicles are not the only thing to recycle before the New Year. You most likely have plenty of holiday decorations to recycle too!

When the holidays are over, you may have a big mess of decorations all over the place. How do you get rid of your holiday tree, holiday lights, cardboard boxes, gift boxes, wrapping paper, gift bags, ornaments, greeting cards, or toys? Don’t just throw them away! If you won’t reuse them, then recycle them!

Give Kids An Opportunity To Experience The Magic Of The Holidays

The holidays provide everyone a chance to be a kid again and to indulge in all of the fun festivities that the season has to offer. At Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish, we work hard to make sure that wishes are granted for kids, especially during the holiday months. This can be made possible with cars that you no longer need or even cars that no longer run. When you donate your old car to Wheels For Wishes, we turn your old car into a wish for a child.

Whether your car runs or not, it will help to grant a wish for a child in your area during the holiday season. Whether the car is old and beat up or you just want to upgrade to something new, we'll take that old car of yours, no matter what it is or what it looks like. We love when our generous donors donate car makes and models such as Oldsmobile Alero, Saturn L200, Buick Century, or even Chevrolet Astro. Truly, we are happy with whichever vehicle you can donate, and your donation makes a huge difference in the life of a child.
