You can be a Superhero to a Child in Need
As a whole, we are enamored by superheroes. We see them on TV and in the movies and comic books and for many of us, we wish we could make a difference like they can. Many jobs use this truth as a recruiting tactic. Military jobs, public safety, firefighting, they all offer the same thing, a chance to be a hero.
But did you know you can be a hero exactly where you are being exactly who you are? By donating your used car to Car Angel c/o Boat Angel Outreach Center, you are being the saving grace, the hero to the people who benefit from the funds your car helps generate. Try telling an otherwise starving young girl that giving her food is not worthy of heroism. While one car may not seem like much to you, it goes far when it comes to helping someone in another country. Car Angel c/o Boat Angel Outreach Center puts 85 cents of every dollar donated into our programs.
While a couple hundred dollars may not go very far in this land of plenty, to people who have nothing in another country, you might as well have told them they're winning the lottery, the one that allows them to have food, clothes and education that they are otherwise without. To them, the people who make that possible ARE superheroes. The thankfulness of these people are reflected in the hundreds of letters and pictures we get every year.
Below are just a few of those we have helped. You can click on their picture to see the full-sized version. It's people like you that make what we do possible. Thank you for being a SUPERHERO.
