LizzieDore_ARSWorld Cancer Day – Car Donation

World Cancer Day is internationally marked on February 4th. On this day, we hope to gain awareness about the prevention, detection, and treatment of cancer. One out of three people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and 9 million people worldwide die from cancer each year. To give you a visual – that is the population of NYC and Philly – gone in one years time! We hope to gain awareness on World Cancer Day and hope you consider car donation.

While answering donation calls in ARS’ Communications Department, I was the most moved by the calls for the American Cancer’s Society. From siblings, calling in for their dying brother to a son whose mother had just passed. Having a parent who passed, it was hard for me to wrap my head around how these individuals were able to process a vehicle donation alongside the death of a loved one. Their strength is honorable and the common thread shared among them  – a desire for a cure and hope in the future.

In a lifetime, 1 out of 3 people will face a cancer diagnosis. Rather than selling or trading in your used car, truck, SUV, motorcycle, RV, or boat on a trailer, consider donating your vehicle to the American Cancer Society. Your car donation will help save lives that might otherwise be lost to the disease. When you donate your car, your gift helps fund groundbreaking research, programs, and services for cancer patients and their families, education, and advocacy. Here’s what else your vehicle donation could help the American Cancer Society do *ACS Car Donation

Advanced Remarketing Services (ARS)ARS - Car Donation

At Advanced Remarketing Services (ARS), we help individuals donate cars to charity. We see every car donation as an opportunity to give back via cars for charity. ARS has streamlined a process for donating a car that is simple for donors, tax deductible, and is leading the industry with 80% of proceeds going to charity. In 2019, we were able to sell 3,665 vehicles for the American Cancer Society.

On behalf of partner the American Cancer Society, we want to thank them for their efforts, time, and impact.
