Kidney Cars Celebrates America Recycles Day
Date:11/12/2008

Environmentally-Friendly Car Donation Program Extends Life of Used Vehicles, Offers Sweepstakes

NEW YORK, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It's too big to fit in the blue plastic bin at the curb, but your car is what you should think about recycling as you join thousands of Americans in celebrating America Recycles Day on November 15. You can give it new life by giving it up to a charity such as the National Kidney Foundation, which runs the Kidney Cars Program.

Over the course of one year, Kidney Cars recycles 15,000 cars, a total of 60,000 tires and a staggering 30,000,000 million pounds of steel.

The National Kidney Foundation wants your car to be a statistic and join the thousands who have gone green for the cause. The foundation says that parting with your hunk of tin this fall can even earn you a pile of cash or the drive of your life. Give it up and you may hit the jackpot as the charity celebrates the 25th anniversary of its Kidney Cars Program with a national sweepstakes.

Donating a vehicle to Kidney Cars any time from now through December 31, 2008, makes you eligible to win one of 25 prizes, including the Grand Prize -- a weekend for four at the Pebble Beach golf resort in California. You may also get a chance to win $25,000 in cash or a year's worth of gas. Your sputtering vehicle may revive the health of thousands suffering from kidney disease while helping save the planet at the same time.

Over the last 25 years, more than 650,000 used vehicles have pumped a total of $150 million into life-saving programs, including free kidney screenings for those at risk, research, public and professional education and camps for children on dialysis.

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 on the sweepstakes or to donate your vehicle visit http://www.kidneycars.org or call 1-800-488-CARS (2277).
