More than 1,600,000 head injuries are estimated to occur in the United States every year. And in California alone, the number of traumatic brain injuries totals a startling 22,400.
Thankfully, organizations like High Hopes are there to support individuals who suffer impairment due to strokes, vehicle collisions or sports-related accidents. Their rehabilitation programs include services from occupational and speech therapies to physical assistance, such as therapeutic swimming and weight training.
You can also support victims of traumatic brain injuries with a car donation to High Hopes Head Injury Program. It’s nice to know that the car you no longer need can be a vessel of comfort to families of TBI victims and reduce the financial burden facing them.
By allowing your old car to benefit High Hopes, those struggling to cope with the emotional and physical costs of an accident or illness can take part in the organization’s effective programs.
When you find yourself with a car you no longer need, there may be methods you’re used to employing, such as doing a dealer trade-in or calling CarMax. Those are definitely easy.
There’s a down side to those options, however. Did you know you’re only getting about 35-40% of the car’s value when you trade it in or get a quote from CarMax? But donating a car to High Hopes means you get to write off 100% of the sale price of your car!
Are you thinking of downsizing your vehicle, planning to give up your SUV for a sedan? According to Edmunds.com, there comes a time when letting go of your car is a wiser move than hanging onto it. Consumer advice editor Ronald Montoya says, "One quick way to come to a decision is with some simple math: If the cost of repairs is greater than either the value of the vehicle or one year's worth of monthly payments, it's time for another vehicle."
You may agree wholeheartedly, but you’re still stuck with the question, “What do I do with my old car?”
Selling your car is an option, of course, but it’s a lot of work. First, you have to get the car in good working condition. Then, you have to clean it and take great photos. And after you list it, you have to meet up with prospective buyers (who can be a little flaky, frankly).
Car donations to High Hopes enable drivers to get the job done and know that, because of their generous gift, an individual with a brain injury can take part in the nonprofit group’s day treatment program, with rehabilitation activities for both cognitive and social challenges.
