Highland, MI (PRUnderground) May 21st, 2019
Driving Successful Lives, a Michigan-based national non-profit, recently facilitated a car donation to a new U.S. Postal Service employee.
A generous donation of a Pontiac Sunfire with only 49,000 miles was donated to Driving Successful Lives, a 501 (c) 3 that is on a mission of helping others in need of transportation, nationwide. “The donor insisted the car be moved urgently because she was tired of it being parked in her drive and wanted it gone and given to someone in need,” said a representative for DSL. “Targeting a recipient of the car donation began with a single-lined email to the charity stating- “I am in Iowa and I need a car for transportation to my job.”
“Driving Successful Lives realized this car was meant to be for the local woman who had fallen on rough times and needed a car so she could begin working at the local post office. Transportation was very vital for this deserving recipient, so the charity paid to have the vehicle transported to her,” added the rep. “To make sure that she would have effective and safe means of transportation, we also had the brakes replaced and a new battery installed for the grateful owner.”
“Acts of kindness, generosity and a devotion to humanity are what people should strive for on a daily basis” says the Director of the Driving Successful Lives. “When we open our hearts and give, we see amazing results and can often change the life of a person in an instant. Giving the car to a local woman who had the heart to reach out and ask was just the beginning of the meant to be donation.”
Driving Successful Lives also reports that some service providers have come forward to handle any additional mechanical work on the vehicle free of charge, showing their support for the Driving Successful Lives mission.
To date, Driving Successful Lives has been instrumental in processing viable cars from the donation program in order to make a difference in the lives of the people it serves, nationwide. Recently recognized as a leader in the community for providing, food, clothing, shelter and transportation by various churches and ministries, Driving Successful Lives will continues to lead the way in giving.
About Driving Successful Lives
Driving Successful Lives’ mission is to facilitate car donations so that veterans, homeless families, children, those with addictions & other non-profits can benefit from fellow citizens giving-forward.
Every time a person gives to the charity of their choice it may also create a tax benefit for them. The money, the items, and the real property that they have donated to non-profit institutions throughout the tax year may be tax deductible which means that they could end up being the difference between a good tax return and a great tax return. Depending upon the kind of donation and the type of charity or foundation that they chose to donate to, the tax deduction it creates could be very helpful for reducing the amount taxes that they owe. Many successful and wealthy people state that at least to a certain degree, a part of whom they are and what they have become comes at least in part from the practice of giving. Contributing to charities can be a very convenient way to reduce taxes.
