For Immediate Release:

Ventura, California November 25, 2014 –Cars 4 Causes® announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2014 Top-Rated Award by Great Nonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.

We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2014 Nonprofit,” says Anthony Glenn, President and CEO, Cars 4 Causes®. We are proud of our accomplishments this year, especially the relationships we have built with the non-profit organizations we serve. The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Cars 4 Causes® received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with our nonprofit. One person wrote, “I had a great experience and HIGHLY recommend Cars 4 Causes!  I decided that I wanted to donate my sailboat to a particular charity.  Not surprisingly, they did not have the capacity to handle such a donation.  They referred me to Cars 4 Causes.  I was able to donate the sailboat through their boat division called Boats 4 Causes.  The process was incredibly simple and efficient.  Their staff (Lorraine in particular) were courteous and professional.  They effectively marketed, negotiated and sold the boat for a fair value.  I confirmed that the charity received the majority of the sale price and they were thrilled and grateful!  Cars 4 Causes did a great job and I’m very happy with the entire transaction.  Dr. Lawrence Marks.”

While the Top-Rated Awards ran through the end of October, Cars 4 Causes® was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, we’ve been added to GreatNonprofits #GivingTuesday Guide—an interactive guide to top nonprofits throughout the years. Look for this near the holidays.

“Savvy donors want to see the impact of their donations more than ever,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “People with direct experience with Cars 4 Causes® have voted that the organization is making a real difference.”

Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community.  Cars 4 Causes supports and honors all charitable causes.  Commonly known as “The Charity that Gives to Charities”® we serve the charitable community by sharing our resources with youth oriented organizations, as well as supporting other non-profit, educational and religious groups and the myriad of causes they believe in and work for.

Cars 4 Causes® Supports Special Olympics World Games Los Angeles 2015!

July 25 – August 2, 2015 Los Angeles is hosting the Special Olympics World Games #LA2015.  7,000 athletes and 3,000 coaches representing 177 countries will be participating.  This is without a doubt the largest event Los Angeles will host since the 1984 Olympic Games.  Get ready Los Angeles because 30,000 volunteers and 500,000 spectators are anticipated to attend this event which will feature 25 Olympic style sporting events.

Founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver the Special Olympics has become a global movement that is changing attitudes and raising awareness about the abilities of people with disabilities.  Through sports this movement empowers individuals to become accepted and valued members in their communities.  Sports bring people together and create a sense of community.  They instill confidence, improve health and inspire character building and integrity.  Sports provide opportunities for socialization, teamwork and, last but not least, FUN!

Everyone loves to root for their country and cheer for their team!  Fundraising, like sports, brings people together in support of a common cause.  A cause is only as strong as the community that supports it.  Cars 4 Causes vehicle donation program is available to anyone who has a heart to help. You can turn that unwanted car, truck, boat, motorcycle, RV, Trailer or Jet Ski into funds to help support your favorite cause.  Get Involved!  Remember “There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up” – John Holmes.

We are so excited about the upcoming games that Cars 4 Causes has joined the World Games Support an Athlete Campaign.  It is our goal to raise $2,500.00 to support an athlete in these upcoming games.  The money we raise will cover our athlete’s expenses such as food, housing, medical care and entertainment.  Let’s do this together….We need your help!  Please donate at Cars 4 Causes Supports LA2015. Then join our team “Team Cars 4 Causes” and help us spread the word.  Follow our progress on the Official Special Olympics Team Leader Board by typing “Team Cars 4 Causes” into the search field.

Our vehicle donation program can help you support your favorite charity.  Give us a call and we will walk you through the donation process.

See you at the games!

RIP Robin Williams – Your Generosity Will Not Be Forgotten.

Category: GeneralJackie Mack @ 12:12 pm

We are deeply saddened by the news of the tragic loss of Robin Williams.  He made us laugh until we cried.   Off-screen this man was a giant giving to those who needed it most.  He is well known for his charity work with Comic Relief, The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, The LiveStrong Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Doctors without Borders, Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Smile Train and 5 tours of the Middle East to help raise morale for our troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

While this bright star is well known for his generosity he was also human; candidly sharing about his personal struggles with addiction and depression.  Addiction and depression commonly co-exist resulting in one of the highest risk factors for suicide.  Remember, there is hope; recovery centers are aimed at helping clients to make long-term changes in self and lifestyle to overcome addiction.

If you or someone you know is struggling with a substance abuse problem you can look to one of these local organizations for assistance:  1) Under the Bridges and On the Streets – Hollywood CA, 2) Visalia Rescue Mission – Visalia CA, 3) HOPE – Escondido CA, 4) Gold Coast Recovery Center, Inc. – Ventura CA, 5) Casa De Vida – Oxnard CA, 6) Bridge of Hope San Diego Inc. – San Diego CA.

Losing someone you love is very painful.  Sometimes it may even feel like the pain and sadness will never go away.  These are perfectly normal reactions to a significant loss.  Everyone grieves differently and the grieving process takes time.  Most importantly remember that the support of others is the catalyst for healing.

Grief support groups are very effective in helping people deal with their loss.  If you or someone you know is struggling with grief you can find support groups by contacting local hospitals, hospices, funeral homes and counseling centers.  You may want to contact one of these local organizations:  1) Hope for Healing Hearts – Huntington Beach, CA, 2) Lil’ Gary’s Legacy – Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, 3) Hospice of Santa Barbara – Santa Barbara, CA, 4) Raha Kudo – Santa  Cruz, CA.

Our hearts are heavy with the news of this tragedy and our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones.  Robin Williams had big heart and he shared it with all of us in so many ways.  Let’s each and every one of us keep that generous spirit alive!
