In January of 2010, the earth shook violently, displacing 1.5 million residents of Haiti and injuring hundreds of thousands. While millions around the world watched in horror, actor Paul Walker took action. He was dropped into Haiti from a helicopter and helped with the earthquake aftermath.
Paul Walker’s work was just beginning.
How often have you watched news reports of people suffering under the impact of a disaster and wished, desperately, that you could help? You can, when you donate a car to disaster relief, choose Reach Out WorldWide!
Is it time to replace your car? Are you hearing crazy sounds from under the hood, or spending half your life in a rental?
As ordinary as a car may be, it can be the source of extraordinary comfort to individuals across the world. A vehicle donation to Reach Out WorldWide through Cars2Charities contributes to the non-profit’s important work, in this case, to contribute to disaster relief—without having to write a check!
After seeing the need to match skills with emerging needs following a disaster, Walker took his efforts to Chile, where citizens suffered an 8.8 magnitude earthquake just a month after the Haiti disaster. The busy actor, who was known for starring in the “Fast & Furious” movies, shifted his schedule to aid the victims. Again, he not only funded the trip, but gave his own time.

Reach Out WorldWide, or ROWW, gets boots-on-the-ground responders to ground zero. It's real help to the people who need it most. ROWW has at the heart of its mission the opportunity to give good people not just a voice, but a chance to act. That’s what it offers you—a way to get involved in relieving the suffering of others with an auto donation to disaster relief through Reach Out WorldWide.
If you find yourself car shopping—surfing AutoTrader or Craigslist, or maybe it’s the time of year the dealers offer great financing—don’t forget the opportunity you have. Are you thinking about a dealer trade-in or using CarMax? You may want to think again.
You probably know you lose some of your car’s value when you go that route. But did you know just how much? Generally, a dealer puts about 35-40% of your car’s value toward the new one you buy.
It’s true—they did a study at USC that found out the main reason that dealers keep so much from your old car. Researchers found that when a customer comes in with a trade-in, they just assume the car buyer doesn’t really care about the price tag. The fact you’re willing to “throw away” so much of your car’s value is a sign to them that “money’s no object.” So, what do they do? They raise the price of the new car you’re buying!
