“We only get so many trips around the sun.” I heard those words in a recent hit song and it stopped me in my tracks. It’s so easy to get caught up in the angst of everyday life – the busyness, the stress, the responsibilities. Why do we allow all the crazy? When it’s all said and done so much of it isn’t very meaningful anyway. Here at DAC, we know that something as material as your ol’ car can make one of those trips around the sun meaningful indeed!
At Donate A Car Canada we are reminded every day to be “Others” focused. The stories attached to every donated car constantly impact our world. I believe our awareness is heightened as a result of working with hundreds of generous people and many deserving charities. It’s such a cool gig to be a part of!
Today I wish you could truly know the individuals behind the scenes at Donate A Car – each with their unique offering to our process and each with their own passion to ‘give back’. It may seem somewhat indulgent of me to talk about our own people but we’ve developed a strong community spirit, and we’ve worked hard to integrate that into our core environment.
Every gift that comes from a car donation has a helping impact!
Our daily interactions include so many volunteers and workers faithful to their causes, passionate about what they do, and they are so grateful for the money generated through our program. It’s because of people like you that we get to enjoy these moments and memories!
If you’re reading this and you don’t have a car to get rid of, or a pocket book that allows you to ‘give generously’, there are so many ways to make those ‘trips around the sun’ more meaningful on a daily basis. Even if it’s a simple smile or an encouraging word, or laughter shared with another (we seem to do that a lot around here!), it all counts and it all makes a difference. It really doesn’t take much to be an angel.
I love the message behind this Nickelback song … enjoy!
