On April 13 we will celebrate the birthday of Thomas Jefferson, one of the founding fathers and authors of the Declaration of Independence. He believed, like many of us, that the right attitude can make all of the difference in life. He is quoted as saying: “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” Here at Wheels For Wishes, we believe that the wishes granted through Make-A-Wish can help change a child’s outlook and positively affect their treatment. That is why we are so passionate about our car donation charity. Whenever you choose to donate your car, you are also choosing to help a child with a life-threatening medical condition! This can help change a child’s life through the granting of a wish.
Jefferson knew a lot about working toward a goal and the influence a positive attitude can have toward achieving that goal. He is still remembered today as one of the most important historical figures in American history. We have gathered some facts about Jefferson that will help you to better understand our famous founding father.

The American Cancer Society National Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week takes place this year April 14-20. Although these cancers are most common with smokers and tobacco users, anyone can be effected by oral, head and neck cancer. Human papilloma virus (HPV) has also been associated with a higher risk for mouth and throat cancer – resulting in cancer of the nasal cavity, sinuses, lips, mouth, thyroid glands, salivary glands, throat or larynx. More than 100,000 cases of oral, head and neck cancer are expected to be diagnosed in the United States this year. Early detection and understanding of the medical condition are the best ways to prevent and treat these types of cancer.

This year, consider donating a car to charity to benefit young adults with life-threatening medical conditions. Your donation benefits Make-A-Wish and could grant a wish for a child up to the age of 18.

When a car stalls or no longer runs, one of the toughest decisions can be deciding what to do with the vehicle. Do you pay for car repairs to fix it, or do you try to sell it? When upgrading a vehicle to a different make or model, it can be a pain to trade the current vehicle in or haggle over a sales price with a potential buyer. Getting rid of a vehicle is never easy, unless you make the generous decision to donate it to Wheels For Wishes. Donating a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes is easy, hassle-free, and saves you time and money!
Wheels For Wishes makes the most out of each and every car donation, even if a vehicle no longer runs! If you sell or trade in your car, you may have to pay for vehicle repairs before selling it, but Wheels For Wishes accepts most vehicles, no matter the condition. Wheels For Wishes either auctions off vehicles for new owners to use, or vehicles are recycled and reused to build new vehicles. This makes vehicle donation green and eco-friendly too! Not only is car donation easy, but it’s easy to contribute to the green movement.
