Give Kids An Opportunity To Experience The Magic Of The Holidays

November 26, 2012

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.

Kick Off The Holiday Season

To help bring in the holiday spirit, you can participate in 'National Believe Day'? on Friday, December 14th. Whether you will participate by donating an old car that you no longer use or you will write your letter to Santa at the North Pole, you will help to make wishes come true.

Every kid deserves to be a kid, especially during the holidays. Kids love traditional activities during the holidays such as visiting Santa, admiring holiday lights, writing a letter to Santa, decorating the tree, listening to holiday music, leaving treats out for Santa, and watching their favorite holiday movies. Kids will especially feel the magic of car donation during the holiday season. Your donation can help provide a child with the hope, strength, and joy that they need to enjoy their favorite and most-loved holiday traditions.

Visit Santa While He's In Town

There's no doubt that writing a letter to Santa is at the top of kids' lists during the month of December. But even more importantly, children love visiting Santa while he's in town and telling him in person what they would like for Christmas. Plus, there is something so magical and beautiful about the malls during the holidays, where Santa can usually be found. Children can sit on Santa's lap, tell him what they wish for, and even have their picture taken with their favorite man in red. Alternately, many cities feature holiday parades or festivals, where Santa will also make an appearance. Yearly events like these are the types of moments that children enjoy year after year.

Light Up The World

Kids love Christmas lights and the magical vibe they provide. A 'Wish Kid'? might wish to see a spectacularly-lit house, or attend a holiday-themed light show in their area. Many neighborhoods feature light shows, neighborhood tree lighting events, or even holiday-themed ice sculptures.

With so many options available during the holidays for kids to feel the magic, there is no doubt that it will light up a child's life. Even more importantly, kids love decorating their holiday tree and personally hanging their favorite, most treasured ornaments.

Bake Cookies For Santa

One of the most exciting events of a child's year is getting the house ready on Christmas Eve before Santa comes the next morning. Kids love to perfect the tree and write their note to leave out for Santa, but most importantly, they like to leave a little snack for Santa. For kids, baking cookies and setting them out are just as important as the arrival of Christmas presents. Children even enjoy leaving snacks out for the reindeer!

Giving kids the opportunity to prepare for the big night is huge for a child. Whether it's making homemade sugar cookies and cutting out holiday-themed shapes, or buying the dough in a tube, children love helping out. The excitement of wondering how Santa will like their treats will keep them awake and wide-eyed all night, just wondering when Santa will arrive.

Turn Your Car Into A Wish

Your choice to participate in vehicle donation will light up a child's life over the holiday season and could change their life forever. Give us a call today and turn your old car into a Christmas wish for a child. Let a child experience all that the holiday season has to offer, and let them enjoy the most-loved holiday traditions that bring hope, strength, and joy back into the life of a child.
