When Donating Your Car, Be Careful

untrustworthy-charities
When deciding on where to donate your car, the most well known charities are not
necessarily the best ones to donate to.

In fact, at least a couple of the car donation “charities” that come up in the top 10 Google search results, are not charities at all!

3 Facts to Consider When Donating Your Car:

1. The top car donation charity in the search results (kars4kids) only benefits a certain ethnic group of children, Not ALL children. They have apparently gotten into trouble with at least a couple of U.S. states, for not making this exclusivity clear. Here’s one of a number of examples.

2. Another car donation charity that appears at the top of search results is WheelsforWishes. They claim to contribute a portion of their proceeds to the well-known charity, Make-A-Wish. However, according to this article (and others) WheelsforWishes got in hot water in the state of Minnesota for only giving “Make-A-Wish” 20% of the donation proceeds!

3. Most are familiar with the charitable organization, Goodwill Industries. So when you see a website by the name of “Goodwill Car Donation” you’ll of course assume that the website is owned by the actual Goodwill, correct? Especially since the Goodwill logo is showing on the browser tab.

Well here’s the thing: they’re not Goodwill. They’re a for-profit company, called “National Charity Services”, who are not even a charity, but a for-profit company. Here’s what this for-profit company made in a previous year (hint: MILLIONS).

To be clear:
Goodwill Industries is allowing National Charity Services (AKA “Goodwill”Car Donation) to collect cars for them.

But the issue here is that anyone considering donating their vehicle to “Goodwill” Car Donation” won’t know that, because their website looks for all the world like it’s owned by Goodwill Industries.

You can verify the above by calling the 800 number on the “Goodwill” Car Donation” website, and insisting they tell you who they actually are.

All of the above information, and more, can be found on the following website, from which we gathered the above information: Best Car Donation Charities.

In conclusion: Make certain that the “charity” you want to donate to is actually a charity, by searching for them here. Here is our charity’s Nonprofit 501(3)(c) information, or you can find it on the IRS search page (scroll down page to see our link, Amercian Children’s Cancer Association). Also make sure the charity (or otherwise) is being completely up front with you — no matter how well known a vehicle donation organization they may be.
They’re are a number of charities to avoid out there — and we’d like to see you make the wisest decision for yourself!

 

Protecting Children from Cancer through Nutrition

In 2012, more than 600,000 Americans died of cancer. In fact, it’s the second most common cause of death in the US after heart diseases. These startling statistics are enough to prove that nearly one in four people have died or will continue to die of cancer. The sad part is anyone can develop cancer, even children, although the older a person gets, his/her chances of developing cancer increases.

Nonetheless, the good news is that if a child eats healthy, the risk of him/her developing cancer certainly reduces. Research has shown that there are some foods that show cancer-fighting abilities and can help in preventing cancer in children. Including these foods in their daily diet will go a long way in maximizing the child’s health and staying ahead of cancer.

*The Super Healthy Garlic*

Garlic contains sulphur compounds that cause garlic breath. However, they are the very same compounds that can prevent cancer-causing substances from being formed in a body, kill cancer cells and also quicken DNA repair. Garlic is known to battle bacteria like H. pylori that is the cause of stomach cancer. It also lessens the risk of colon cancer.

To get the maximum benefit, garlic needs to be peeled and chopped. By leaving it as is for about 15 to 20 minutes before cooking releases sulphur compounds and activates the enzymes that have the maximum protective effect.

Although, garlic is the main ingredient, some research suggests that chives, leeks, onions, and scallions can protect against stomach cancer too.

*Rich in Antioxidants-Strawberries*

Who does not love strawberries? In fact, all berry fruits like cranberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries are rich in flavonoids. Flavonoids are known to suppress an enzyme that is linked to lung cancer. On the other hand, strawberries contain ellagic acid and Vitamin C. During laboratory tests, ellagic acid showed anticancer properties that can slow the growth of tumors and wipe out substances that cause cancer.

*Best Eaten when Cooked-Carrots*

Loaded with disease-fighting nutrients, carrots contain an antioxidant called beta-carotene. Research has shown that beta-carotene slows the growth of cancer cells and also shields the cell membranes from toxin damage. Carrots also contain other phytochemicals and vitamins that guard against cancers of the stomach, esophagus and mouth.

The best way to eat a carrot is when it’s cooked. Carrots need to be boiled or steamed without cutting. Cutting carrots after it’s cooked preserves its nutrients and also gives them a sweeter taste.

Some other foods that can prevent cancer are spinach and whole grains. Including all or some these foods in a child’s diet will definitely prevent him/her from developing cancer and leading a healthier life.
