How To Get A Car For Free (Not Just At Xmas)

How To Get A Car For Free (Not Just At Xmas)

Ok, the headline of this post is slightly provocative and for sure the advice below will not apply to everyone. If you have the money to buy a new or used car, then this article is probably not for you. However, if you are reading this having found yourself in desperate times and you have kids or other family members that depend on you for their welfare because you have to work, then read on. This website is generally focused on Canada but the advice herein still applies although to a lesser degree. In the US, you may have heard about car donation programs. The premise is simple. Basically, ordinary folk are donating their used cars (sometimes motorcycles, RVs, boats, junk cars, etc.) to charity. Normally, the charities sell them and keep the cash for their charitable activities. However, there is a different type of charity. Some charities keep the cars and donate them to needy individuals - that is, people who can clearly demonstrate that the use or availability of a car is critical to their existence. Usually these people have had a car but cannot afford repairs or the cost of a replacement. Enter a benevolent charity. The point is, if you can demonstrate such a need, you too can get a 'new' car. All you have to do is identify charities that donate cars in this way and then make an application. So, like everything in life, it can turn out to be a bit of a lottery. The key, however, is to find a charity that specializes in your type of need. For example, if you are a senior on a low budget and need a car to get to your local store, then you may qualify via a program offered by United Way. In Heartland, Nebraska, Heartland Way recently donated a 2006 Chevrolet HHR to such a person. Last week in Antioch, California, 5 lucky people received 'new' cars courtesy of Mike Rose’s Auto Body Program. If you live in these areas, then it might be worth getting in touch to see how the programs work and whether you qualify. Failing that look out for car donation programs in your state and look out for press coverage where others have received vehicles care of such programs. You can read more about car donation at DonateCar24.com.

  1. OK, focused on Canada... yet the only links to the sorts of charities you describe are American ones. If you try to do a search for charities that will donate to those in need all you will find are the ones looking for you to donate your car to them. Hundreds of them. Couldn't you list any Canadian programs since it is supposedly so Canada focused?

    1. Freda's Voice is a Canadian Lifestyle blog, however, not all posts are geared to just Canada. This was a sponsored post, therefore I do not contribute to the content or links.
      Also, my demographic is actually geared more to the United States, where most of my readers are. Not in Canada where I live.
      Sorry you were disappointed. Do a Google.ca search for the information you seek.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
