Charity Story Online News Resource Launches
LONGWOOD, Fla. -- The Original 1-800-Charity Cars, America’s #1 car donation charity, is continuing to advocate for charitable giving by announcing the launch of Charity Story, an online news resource covering charitable organizations and nonprofits. The mission of Charity Story is to "Uplift Humanity One Story at A Time" by soliciting engaging content from a wide variety of organizations large and small, building a stronger giving community throughout the United States.

"Charity Story is another way to spread the word about resources for individuals and families in need, not just through 1-800-Charity Cars but also through like-minded organizations and businesses around the country,” Brian Menzies, 1-800-Charity Cars CEO said.

There is no subscription needed to read articles on Charity Story, available online at Fresh content will be added daily, via news items submitted from those within the philanthropic community as well as original news articles written by Charity Story staff.

The Original 1-800-Charity Cars is dedicated to initiatives helping to unite the for-profit and nonprofit sectors of our nation to help people across the country provide a better life for themselves and their families. In December 2018, the organization launched a radio campaign throughout New York City raising the important issue of donating cars to legitimate nonprofits during the holiday season while avoiding scams.

The NYC effort came on the heels of 1-800-Charity Cars engaging in Project Spark, a national initiative to help families, veterans and first responders get back on the road. Through Project Spark, Midas will provide repairs, including parts and labor, for vehicles donated through 1-800-Charity Cars. This nationwide initiative will help more than 1,000 people in Midas communities across the country.

1-800-Charity Cars has a long history over two decades of partnering with automotive leaders, both locally and nationwide, to generate vehicle donations to award to struggling families. The organization leverages its substantial online community, solid reputation, and visibility in media outlets like Oprah, Good Morning America, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, CBS Morning News, The Non-Profit Times, People Magazine and others to help partners build awareness of charitable campaigns and introducing them within their specific communities where they do business, garnering support from a wide array of people.

The organization’s partnerships revolve around modest budget campaigns introducing charitable projects to communities utilizing traditional as well as innovative strategies, supported by its ability to process vehicle donations via the easy-to-remember 1-800-CHARITY CARS vanity phone number and website. Qualified recipients are matched with donated vehicles based on specific needs.

1-800-Charity Cars awarded $6.4 million in vehicles during the last fiscal year, building on its history of awarding over 8,000 vehicles to military veterans, victims of domestic violence, struggling families, the medically needy, victims of natural disasters and the working poor.
