Get unhitched from your beloved used car by donating it to the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and you may hit the jackpot as the charity celebrates the 25th anniversary of its Kidney Cars Program with a national sweepstakes.
Donating a vehicle to Kidney Cars any time from September 1 through December 31, 2008, makes you eligible to win one of 25 prizes, including the Grand Prize -- a weekend for four at the Pebble Beach golf resort in California. You may also get a chance to win $25,000 in cash or free gas or free oil changes. Sometimes, love is about knowing when to let go and in the case of Kidney Cars, your sputtering vehicle may revive the health of thousands suffering from kidney disease.
Over the last 25 years, more than 650,000 used vehicles have pumped a total of $150 million into life-saving programs, including free kidney screenings for those at risk, research, public and professional education and camps for children on dialysis.
