Consider Auto Donation During The Holidays
If you’re looking to give back this holiday season but aren’t sure where or what you should do to help, we’ve got you covered. At Wheels For Wishes, we encourage everyone to give back to the communities that they live in to help make the world a better place. The holiday months can be a difficult time for many organizations and individuals, but it makes for the perfect time to give back and help to make a difference. If Make-A-Wish is an organization that you'd like to support over the holidays, then consider making an auto donation to Wheels For Wishes.
What Cause Is Most Important To You?
Everyone has a cause that is closest to their heart, whether it has to do with human rights, animal rights, education, children, the community, hunger, health, or disease. Everyone is fighting for something, and the holiday months can be a great time to give back to a cause that is important to you. Giving during the holidays can help organizations come up with what they need to kick start a successful New Year.
First, decide which type of organization you’d like to support during the holidays. Or, maybe you will put together a way to help a certain organization throughout the year. Even giving $5 or less each month can be very beneficial to organizations.

Can’t Decide How To Help?
If you can’t decide who to give to, consider some of these ideas:
Help the homeless by serving food at a homeless shelter, become a tutor, offer job training, or help to build a home for the homeless. Learn more at the National Coalition for the Homeless.
Sign up for Meals on Wheels and deliver meals to those in need.
Donate an automobile to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish.
Help homeless animals by volunteering at a local animal shelter. Visit Petfinder.com for a list of shelters in your area.

Become a Big Brother or Big Sister and mentor a child or teen through Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
Volunteer at a nursing home
Make a difference in the lives of disabled veterans through the Department of Veteran Affairs.
Donate or volunteer at an animal sanctuary.
If you’re short on time and hands-on volunteering is difficult during the holidays, donations are always an important way to give.
Help Your Local Make-A-Wish
If the cause closest to your heart involves children and helping to bring hope, strength, and joy back into the lives of children with critical illnesses, consider helping Make-A-Wish this holiday season. Make a general donation, donate airline miles, make an in-kind donation, become a sponsor, or volunteer.
Another huge way to help Make-A-Wish is by donating an automobile to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish. When you make an auto donation, your vehicle will be recycled and reused or auctioned off for a new owner to use. The earned proceeds from the sale of your vehicle will benefit your local Make-A-Wish chapter. Plus, you receive free pick up and towing of your vehicle, whether it runs or not.
Auto donation also gets you the highest possible tax deduction! Donate a car today and receive a tax deduction for this year’s taxes when you donate before 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31.
