Ways to Donate to ACCA Besides
Donating cash to a
charity is a heart-warming experience for all involved, but sending
a check is just one of many ways to
be of assistance. There are many terrific options available to those
who want to donate to a cause that is
close to your heart other than giving cash.
Donate your automobile
Many charities, such as the American Children's Cancer
Association, are in great need of vehicles, either to
repair and sell
in order to fund their Missions, or to give to families in need of
transportation to treatment facilities. Donating a car in
NY (or any other state) or truck, boat, or any vehicle, is
a perfect example of a non-monetary way one can give to charity.
Having said that, one should consider some things before deciding to
donate. If you are concerned about tax deductions: when
you make a vehicle donation usable by the charity, then the amount
of your tax deduction will be based on the market value
of the vehicle. Also, depending on how much the car is worth, you
will have to fill out certain tax forms accordingly.
The friendly representatives a American Childrens Cancer Association
(ACCA) will assist you tith this.
Remember, when you Donate Your Car NY to ACCA, you
are helping local families find the best, most effective treatments
Donate your Time
Other ways to give to charity (without donating cash) is
volunteering your time, donating other material goods (besides
vehicles), or by simply raising awareness about ACCA's
Still Prefer to Give Financially?
We appreciate your kind willingness to help us fulfill our Mission
to help educate familes in the prevention of cancer, and
help them find the safest, most effective ways to treat childhood
Monetary donations may be made here. We at ACCA
thank you for your generousity!
Another Reason to
Donate Car NY, Today: It's Recycling!
Did you know that when you Donate
Your Car NY (or in any other state) to
Give2Kids.com, you are not only helping us help families with kids with
cancer find and learn about the safest, most effective treatments, and
possibly receiving a $200 VISA Gift Card for yourself — you are also
helping our environment? Yes, when you Donate
Car NY (or anywhere in America) you are
recycling! You can easily make your Car
Donation NY (or in any state) by filling
out the easy form at the American
Children’s Cancer Association website,
or calling one of our friendly reps at 1-800-Give2Kids (1-800-448-3254)
In today’s world, we all understand the environmental need for recycling
and do not hesitate to participate in our township or city recycling
programs. Beyond paper, plastic and aluminum, some townships even
promote composting landscaping refuse and kitchen scraps to be recycled
into to mulch and fertilizers to beautify our public spaces and parks.
With a charitable car donation, gently used vehicles are a wonderful way
to give back directly to families in need or can be sold at auction to
raise badly needed funds for support and care.
But what about a vehicle that is no longer needed or wanted? Maybe the
“first car” that belonged to a teenager off to college? An inherited
vehicle, that is going unused? Or even the far less than perfect
vehicles, that still run, but have seen better days? They are still
suitable for car donation to be recycled and also a great way to give
back to children and families in need.
What happens to your car after it’s donated to us, and how does it raise
funds for Give2Kids? How is the car recycled and what are the “green”
benefits of making a donation? While we strongly prefer donated
vehicles in good, working condition, we also accept them in
less than perfect (non-running condition.
Here are three very practical reasons donating even a non-runing vehicle
is good for the environment:
1. Your donated vehicle is constructed of a steel frame.
When steel is recycled a significant amount of valuable iron ore is
extracted which re-uses and reduces the blight iron mining has on the
environment. The process of extracting iron ore from steel already
forged also uses significantly lower amounts of coal then if the ore
were processed from its raw state. (Recycled steel uses 74 percent less
energy than new steel). Using less coal energy reduces the environmental
damage that coal mining has on our natural limestone veins as well as
reducing the carbon footprint from coal burning.
2. Even if you are donating a car that no longer runs, it may have
Many older makes and models may have parts that are hard for car buffs
to find on the market as well as perfectly working common parts that can
be re-used in other vehicles. This again is economical on waste and
reduces the carbon footprint that unnecessary manufacturing causes.
3. If your vehicle is sent in for salvaging, part of the process is
removing hazardous chemicals that need safe disposal.
When sent to a proper vehicle recycling facility the car is drained of
all fluids and chemicals and stripped of rubber parts either to be
filtered and/ or recycled or disposed of safely. This is in the
responsible effort of reducing the chemicals that end up in improper
disposal facilities or land fills which is hazardous to our ground
water, flora and fauna, and agriculture. Highly toxic mercury and
anti-freeze are big culprits in the poisoning of groundwater. Not to
mention that 11 million gallons of oil was recycled from used cars last
year (!) – which with the high price of petroleum makes good economic
By recycling your vehicle you can also inspire
others you know to do so. Spread the word to friends and family via our

testimonial or story please send
it to us– we would love to hear how donating your car was a
great giving experience.
Give2Kids Vehicle Donations -
More Than Just Cars! Why Not Donate Your Boat (or Truck or Plane
Give2Kid accepts more than just automobiles. Any vehicle can be
donated- trucks, motorcycles, trailers, boats and even airplanes!
But, with summer coming to a close it may be time to consider donating a boat to the Give2Kids program. Maybe you have an inherited boat,
or with the family all grown up and living busy lives you do not "get
out" like you used to. If you have a boat that is not getting the use it
should, then you know the costs that it incurs to keep the boat afloat!
By donating your boat to Give2Kids not only will you be supporting
families in needof critical information about alternative cancer treatments, health and
healing options but you can take advantage of cutting back on your
overhead costs that come along with boat ownership. Weigh up the cost to
keep your boat versus your usage. You may find it is more cost effective
to occasionally rent a boat for a day trip and think of the fun you will
have trying new and different models! Here are some financially sound
reasons to donate your boat:
- Avoid expensive mooring fees
- Avoid the high cost of boat insurance - which includes winter storage
- Avoid expensive maintenance costs and the time and work it takes to
keep your boat in condition
- Avoid luxury/ property taxes that goes with boat ownership
- Avoid launch fees
Relieve yourself of the commitment, responsibility and liability that
comes with boat ownership - (Many boat owners may have experienced the
"joy rider borrowing" the boat only to find it run up and abandon on a
Receive the highest tax write off available from the IRS for donating
your boat (Go to
www.irs.gov and review the online guide for vehicle
donations for further information)
Avoid the long and tenuous process of selling your boat. With the
current state of our economy luxury item sales such as boats are at an
all time low. Consider the amount if time it will take to find a buyer
and if the continued costs to keep your boat are with what you would
receive from a sale.
Now consider how your boat donation will raise funds for the American
Children's Cancer Association and Give2Kids. A boat in any condition can
be recycled for materials and parts or reconditioned for auction with
the proceeds going directly to children and families. Please see the
Give2Kids blog posting about the
environmental perks from recycling vehicles.

See Our New Infographic on the Dangers of Leaving Children
in the Car!:
Although our main focus is childhood cancer prevention and
treatments, ACCA will at times also share other child health-related
information. The subject of children left in cars is so important, we
created a custom infographic about it.
Please share it! Your generous New York car donation (and all
of U.S.) assists the ACCA's distribution of the kind of extremely
important child-health news such as the above! Thank you....
It’s so sad to hear about news reports about
innocent kids who die because their parents or caregivers left them
in a hot car. It breaks people’s hearts since it’s a tragedy that
could have easily been avoided if that parent or caregiver were
properly educated on the dangers of leaving kids in hot cars.
The adjoining infographic states that an
average of 83 children have died in hot cars each year in the USA
since 1998. And since that year, 619 kids have died in cars from
heat stroke in the USA. And the numbers are only growing.
Parent and caregivers need to know that cars
heat up dangerously fast. Actually, a car can heat up twenty degrees
in as little as ten minutes, so even if they think they’re just
leaving their kids in a car for a quick five minutes, they don’t
know that those five minutes can be deadly.
It doesn’t even matter if a car is parked in
the shade or if the window is cracked. The sad facts are that
leaving kids in hot cars left unattended can lead to serious harm
and injuries and in many sad cases even death. It’s never okay to
leave kids in a car alone. Practically 20% of deaths happen because
a caregiver or parent intentionally left the child in the car alone.
By educating parent and caregivers about the
deathly truths about leaving kids in cars, we can, over time, save
thousands of innocent, precious lives. The infographic has many more
facts about what happens to a kid left in a car alone, so please
read over it so that such an horrible tragedy never happens to your
family. And please let family and friends know about the infographic
so that they can also save lives.
