Can Santa Get a Car Down a Chimney?

Can Santa Get a Car Down a Chimney?

We’ve got Halloween behind us and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. But you don’t have to squint to see Christmas on the horizon. Some people start shopping very early and may already be finished. (Don’t you hate those people?) For most of us though, we are just starting to make our shopping lists and preparing to panic. That’s half the fun, right?

Unfortunately, the country is still in recovery and so many people don’t have the luxury of making lists and checking off names. Is there something we can do to help out those less fortunate? Of course there is. I can’t pass a bell ringer’s bucket without dropping in my change. I’ve tried. Can’t do it. Then I go get in my car and drive home or on to the next destination (where they are likely to have another bucket . . . process repeats).

There are many opportunities available and we should take advantage of as many as we can, but if you happen to have an old car in your yard that you can part with you can make someone’s Christmas really special. You can give someone the ability to get to work, take their children to the doctor, buy groceries and take them home, and so many other little things you and I take for granted every time we start our cars.

Cars4Heroes, Kars4Kids, Cars4Christmas, Cars4Moms, WheelsforWishes, CarsforUSTroops… These are just a few of the donation sites just waiting for your contribution. Whatever disadvantaged group you feel most compassionate toward, imagine the joy and independence you could put under someone else’s tree! Google “car donations” and you will find what you’re looking for. They make it easy. Most places will arrange to come and get the vehicle, but you should be able to find one locally so you can just drop it off. You must have the title in your possession and in your name. If you have an electronic title you may want to call the charity to see how they want to handle it. Getting one printed is cheap though, if that’s what you need to do.

How does this benefit you? Besides the knowledge that you did something nice for someone else, I mean. Well, you free up space in your garage or yard. We all need more space. And you also get a voucher for a tax deduction. Everybody wins!
