A Good Cause

This is the car I learned to drive in, and it holds a very special place in my heart and memories. I couldn't bring myself to sell it. Donating it was the best way for me to let the car go knowing that it would go to a good cause. I hope it serves you as well as it served me for the past 8 years.

Help The Environment.

My car needed a simple repair and I was already considering donating the car as a lifestyle change toward using bike and public transport. Seems like the right time to donate the car and help the environment.
