November 29th, Giving Tuesday -- Canada's way of coming together to "create a tidal wave of Hope"! Give time, give kindness, give dollars and cents...or give your unwanted, unused four wheels!
Autism is a heart work of choice for car, van, truck, and motorcycle donors. Wondering what to do with that unused Toyota? 'That no-longer-loved Dodge Charger? Donate it!
Autism Calgary Association has a Donate a Car Canada gift! Our donors have richly personal reasons for selecting a receiving charity. Health-related organizations hit the top of the list. The choice may be all about the care of the planet, or of animals. Morever, charities are picked for sentimental reasons.
The owners of a recycle-ready 2007 Dodge Caravan chose Autism Calgary Association for heartfelt reasons.
Our donors noted,
"This vehicle has enormous sentimental value to our son, who has autism. He has named the Van Zoomy. Zoomy was last driven 6 years ago and needed major work at that time,We have held onto Zoomy until our son was ready to let go. He's ready and has chosen to donate Zoomy to Autism Calgary."
These kinds of stories are exactly why Donate a Car Canada does what we do! Not only do our donor matter, their vehicle matters. And the charity of choice is vital to the giver.
Zoomy makes a difference
For charities like Autism Calgary Association, a donation like this is critical to their ongoing work. Furthermore, the beauty of a gift like this is that it allows the giver to feel sure their beloved vehicle is more than just scrap metal. Zoomys, all across Canada, continue to serve by turning wheels and metal into much-needed dollars.
Consider the causes that are meaningful to you. You've likely experienced, for yourself, the value of every donation dollar. Hearts and minds are impacted. In addition, the machine of the operations is kept up and running.

Have a Zoomy of your own to share?
Not all cars and trucks have sentimental value to us. Frankly, sometimes we just want the ol' scrap metal hauled out of the back yard! In extreme cases, we don't even care what happens to what feels like a heap of junk. But sometimes we do care. A lot. We care because the car was the last vehicle that our aging loved one used before they gave up driving. Or, it may be the last car we're going to use before we surrender that freedom for ourselves. Equally common, the car or truck may be our learner vehicle -- or the one we used to teach our kids to drive. Whatever your story (or lack of story!), we're here to help you turn your donation ready unit into monies for the cause you love.
