Donate a Car

Doesn’t it sound a little unusual to donate a car? Yes but it does happen. If people could donate their precious organ then how car could matter for them. People could choose these donated car for transportation and for hauling goods and people. In twenty first century car dependency has increased manifolds. In urban areas it is almost essential because mobilization it be of people or goods is inevitable these days. Cars are needed for ambulance service, refugees, rescue services in war and natural disaster prone areas and such other activities. But all of these activities are most often not supported by government but common people and such communities do need cars as much as other things. But trend of donating a car is found considerably rare though its importance is probably paramount.
The biggest example of donating a car is Edhi Ambulance system when just two to three friends managed to get a second hand car and devoted it as an ambulance and the system triggered by that single car is todays biggest ever ambulance system with inclusion of air ambulance as well.in the very country Edhi organization belongs to there is a local business company by the name of “Gourmet” who has tried to  add into number of ambulances in public hospitals in order to cater the actual demand of ambulance service which could not be met by government itself. I has helped a lot in the bettering the service and catchment area of the hospitals which are really less in number even in big urban areas because of having a poor economy.
In all the philanthropic activities demand for donation in terms of cars is really significant. But important is to visualize its significance. Donating a car actually increases the catchment area of any service. Donated cars can particularly be helpful in third world areas as even today there are far off areas and these are suffering from deprivation due to poor access to services. Donating a car actually is an alternate to give facilities and services in remote areas, these provide access to these services without being geographically accessible. Vehicles can also be used by non-governmental organizations to give jobs to poor people through these cars. Cars include trucks too.
Since Rio de jinario’s conference and such other huge steps taken for betterment of environment, treatments like recycling of everything has turned huge importance. But in case of used cars it’s not appreciable because while scrapping these vehicles a lot of damage to environment is done and the spirit of recycling dies right there and the only thing saved is iron. Better strategy to be adopted in this case is reuse, it allows optimum use of the vehicle and lesser burden on resources. Having charity as an option compliments this strategy. This concept of charity should be appreciated and promoted by governments and environmental protection agencies as it really could work for their cause. Donating a car is also coined sometimes as donating to environment for its long lasting effects on environment.
Donation of vehicles should be taken a step ahead with an inclusion big car factories as well as they are the real manufacturers and do have an impact over the people’s minds regarding this purchase of cars. Recently Toyota has given away ten brand new cars in the regard this is an example of how to promote this concept so that people could give it its demanded importance.
Donating a car today is as much important as donating organs, or probably more, because it has capability of serving enormous number of people and objectives. Today we have a number of NGOs working almost everyone of it needs cars to fulfil their aims. We need cars for transporting people in war areas where there are no governments working but only NGOs and community based organizations, whole burden is on these organizations and they are dependent on community basically. Now whole tilt is on community to understand its significance and use their assets intelligently to help people around the world. Charity and its love is not something that needs to be stressed but need is to see what does the world need, it’s no more the services or food but access to them and the best way to provide access to them is through cars. Though it’s a cumbersome task for government to cover all the philanthropic activities itself but if taxes are deducted in charity cases. Such examples do exist in other countries. Cars are not only used for functioning of these organization but for getting money as well, if such policies are introduced people could be more inclined towards donating their car to such organizations. Even Alzheimer and cancer hospitals are offering to accept car donations today. It’s too often people get newer cars and look for ways to dispose of their older cars. Donating the car is a win win situation for them because they get to charity these cars and get deductions in taxes as well, on the other hand organizations getting such charity can use it. As in all cases even in case of such policies there are people who are using such noble policies for their business and they somehow manage to get benefits from the tax deduction on cars.

Donating a car is an attractive offer to people because it allows them to have a good feel of being able to donate a car at the same time have a good reward to it as there is no deduction of taxes. It could be made even more attractive by introducing more policies. Most of the time cars are not even supposed to be in running condition. It defines how hugely these charities are flexible to accept car donations. At the same time awareness regarding car donations needs to be given and it should be convincing enough that people should consider buying a donated car as a preferred option which certainly is not the case right now.
