A Valentine's Day Tip

NEW YORK, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Roses and chocolates, hearts and flowers. You're all set to impress the one you love on Valentine's Day. Now if you could just do something about your car.

Don't worry. Here's a way you can impress your sweetheart even with a clunker: Donate your used car to the National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Cars Program. The money raised through this charitable contribution plan benefits programs in research, patient services, organ donation and public education. Your generosity is bound to put you right back in the driver's seat for some extra affection. You also may find yourself in the express lane for a tax deduction.

In fact, eighty-four (84%) percent of Americans who donate cars, vans, trucks or boats to the National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Cars Program itemize their tax returns and are able to reap a charitable deduction for their contribution.

Last year, nearly 38,000 Americans chose the National Kidney Foundation Kidney Cars Program. Because all you need to do is call 1-800-488-CARS (2277) and they will send you a packet, with a self-addressed envelope so you can mail back the signed title and odometer statement. Once you return the completed packet, the Foundation will contact you to arrange for a free pick-up. Vehicles are sold either at auction or for parts, with 78% of the proceeds supporting the work of the National Kidney Foundation.

The National Kidney Foundation is the nation's leading voluntary health agency dedicated to preventing kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by these diseases, and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation.

For more information, or to donate your car, van, truck or boat, call 1-800-488-CARS (2277) or donate online at '/>"/>
