Do you have an unneeded car, boat or RV? Put it to work planting trees. That’s right! Put a stop to the lazy ways of that car that just sits in your driveway or garage doing nothing and mocking you. Just because it is summer and school’s out, that doesn’t mean your old RV or boat can just sit around doing nothing.
Now I know what you’re thinking, “But Emma, it’s not planting season! My unwanted car shouldn’t be planting any trees until at least October.” This is true, but if you donate your unwanted car, boat or RV to Friends of Trees during July, our generous nonprofit partner, the Center for Car Donations, will add an additional incentive. You can win an iPad! Anyone 18 or older who donates their car or boat during July is entered to win an iPad valued at $499! The winner will be drawn at random on August 1 from all donations received by participating nonprofits.
So donate now and come October you can rest assured we’ll be putting your gift to good use planting trees in your community! The Center for Car Donations will come to wherever your vehicle is and tow it for you. The car, boat or RV does not even need to be running. All you need is a valid title. You get rid of your unwanted vehicle that is just taking up space, receive a tax deduction, and your car plants trees!
