Honor Mom With a Donation, Too
NEW YORK, May 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Honk if you're thinking about Mom.
This week, when so many Americans are spinning their wheels trying to think of the perfect Mother's Day gift, the National Kidney Foundation wants to remind you about another opportunity to make a unique gift -- one that may save lives and save you money.
You can use this traditional time of love and giving to donate your used car to the National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Cars Program, in honor of Mom. The money raised through this charitable contribution plan will benefit programs in research, patient services, organ donation and public education. And, you may also 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.
Every single day, 110 Americans choose the National Kidney Foundation Kidney Cars Program. Vehicles are sold either at auction or for parts, with 75% of the proceeds supporting the work of the National Kidney Foundation. Talk about getting good mileage.
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 www.kidneycars.org.
Think of it as one more chance to put a smile on Mom's face.
