This Holiday Season, Donate Your Car to the National Kidney Foundation

New York, NY (November 10, 2006) - With the excitement of the holidays, it’s easy to forget that soon it will be the tax man, not Santa, knocking at your door. Instead of wrapping paper and ribbons, you’ll be knee-deep in receipts and calculator tape. So this year, why not extend the season’s joy of giving while preparing for April 15. Donate your car to the National Kidney Foundation Kidney Cars Program. You’ll not only help thousands of Americans suffering from kidney disease, you might also qualify for a tax deduction — a welcome year-end break from expensive holiday shopping.

Donating is easy. All you need to do is call 1-800-488-CARS (2277) and the National Kidney Foundation will mail out a packet, complete with a self-addressed envelope in which to mail back the signed title and odometer statement. Once the completed packet is received, the Foundation will contact the donor to arrange for a free pick-up. Vehicles are sold either at auction or for parts, with 67 percent of the proceeds supporting the work of the National Kidney Foundation.

The National Kidney Foundation is the nation’s leading voluntary health agency dedicated to preventing kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by these diseases, and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation. For more information or to donate your car, van, truck or boat, call 1-800-488-CARS (2277) or donate online at
