Do you have a car, truck, trailer or boat that you don’t need? Want to make a difference in the lives of thousands of children by donating it? It’s All About the Kids® has teamed up with the Center for Car Donations!

How to Donate a car in 3 steps.

1. You can donate online by CLICKING HERE or call our representative at 877-411-3662.
Center for Car Donations will take all your information, including the charity you would like the proceeds sent to.

2. You will receive a call within 24 business hours from one of their nationwide auctions to schedule a convenient appointment to pick up your vehicle, at your home, office or repair shop.
Your car does not have to be running to qualify, however it must have an engine and be tow-able.
When their driver comes to pick up your car, you will give the driver your signed title and he will give you a tow receipt.
If you have lost your title, in some states, they can take the vehicle with a duplicate title, but please call them to get more details.

3. Once the vehicle sells, they will send you a thank you letter and tax form.
The proceeds will benefit your favorite charity…It’s All About the Kids® !
They can accept boats, RV’s and special equipment if it is running and on a case-by-case basis.
Yes, it really is that easy!

The company was hosting its annual RealWorld 2015 User Conference in San Diego and were looking for a charity to donate books to. And not just any books, Dr. Seuss books! She quickly replied, “Please choose us!”.

We’d like to send a huge thank you to Mike and everyone at RealPage, as well asall the RealWorld 2015 Conference attendees who donated hundreds of Dr. Seuss books for our kids!

The books were given to Christie’s Place, who is having their annual Back to School Party August 15, 2015. Each child will receive a Dr. Seuss book. We know that all the children, from the little ones up to the teens, will absolutely love their books. We are so thankful!
