Baseball has been very good to me. That phrase has been a punchline, but it’s very real for former Major League Baseball player Tim Flannery.
When you donate a car to the Love Harder Project you support Flannery’s nonprofit organization that works to reduce bullying. “Flan,” as he’s called, believes it’s his duty to use his star power to spread love and compassion to others.
It takes effort to change the world ... one bully at a time. That’s the mission of the Love Harder Project, where there are no salaries – everyone gives their time freely. There are costs to providing resources to advance the goal, and the generosity of a vehicle donation to the Love Harder Project through Cars2Charities expands its programs such as The Buddy Bench Project.
The Buddy Bench Project’s anti-bullying program offers grant money to schools where they define a curriculum that aims to make gains in reducing threats and violence toward fellow students. What founder Tim Flannery and president Devon Fox want to do is educate the public about the ill effects of bullying and get everyone on board in fighting it.
Flannery played for the San Diego Padres and then became a third base coach for the San Francisco Giants. He considers it his duty to use that star power to spread love, and he can continue it through resources such as car donations to the Love Harder Project.
The LHP is an immediate reaction to the unthinkable beating of Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium in 2011 and continues to gain momentum and National notoriety the more it reaches out.
If you’re considering a change of car, you can play a part in helping kids learn to treat one another with respect, thus reducing violence in the men and women of tomorrow.
We may take our cars for granted, but we all know how far our world – mostly through our vast screen time – has become one of cruelty and bullying. It’s so nice when someone has put something in place to combat that problem, and all we have to do is pick up the phone.
When you have a car you no longer need, you can very easily contribute by calling Cars2Charities at 855-520-2100 or donating online.
Once you reach out to us, we get the ball rolling. We arrange a time to pick up your donation car and take over the job of selling your vehicle so that your proceeds can go to the Love Harder Project.
We’ve all seen children who seem depressed, many times because they have trouble connecting and making friends. Wouldn’t it be nice if their school could implement a program that increases kindness and shares positive feelings – one toward another?
You can be a resource for others in pain. Even if you don’t have a lot of cash, the vehicle you drive can bring value to the nonprofit. And it’s also a nice solution to your job of finding a new home for your older car.
Do you find you’re in a rental car way too often (meaning your car is in the shop AGAIN)? It very well may be a good financial move to make a change of vehicle, which makes an auto donation to the Love Harder Project more possible.
The website Edmunds.com is a well-known authority on cars and it explains the high costs associated with maintenance. For instance, there are costs at around 100,000 miles you don’t often think about, like having to replace the water pump and other drive belts. That can cost you $600-$1,000! Or if your transmission fails or you blow a motor – you’re talking about $3,000-$7,000 for repairs!
But having a vehicle you don’t need is an opportunity for you. A car or truck donation to the Love Harder Project means you can benefit kids and get a nice tax deduction. And it costs you nothing. Not even time!

Yes. At Cars2Charities, we process your vehicle donation and send proceeds to the Love Harder Project, which is one of our charity partners. Because it is a nonprofit, it ensures you get your full tax credit, which is based on the selling price of the car.
One of the advantages when you donate a car to charity through Cars2Charities is our unique process. We maximize your tax deduction because we assess donation cars to see if they need any alterations. We’ve found that cars with changes tend to sell for 25-50% more. Of course, since your write-off is based on the selling price, it gives you a better boost.
While many people are used to doing a dealer trade-in or going to CarMax, you probably know the reasons a car, truck or SUV donation to the Love Harder Project is a more advantageous process. CarMax and dealers only give you about 30-40% of your car’s value. The USC Marshall School of Business did a study proving that when customers have trade-ins, dealers actually increase the sale price of the cars they sell you.
But through us you can write off 100% of the sale price of your vehicle. And one more thing about working with us – we follow IRS guidelines – everything is transparent and papers are in order. After handling all the paperwork – even the DMV forms — we send you and LHP a copy of IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale of your vehicle, indicating the final sale price of your car.
Yes, of course! We gladly pick up your RV donation to the Love Harder Project through Cars2Charities. Whether it’s a camper or fifth wheel – or other vehicle – we can help you.
Are you paying for a storage unit where you keep all kinds of “toys” such as sportscars, quads, tent trailers or other vehicles? Think of the money you save when you clean it out!
If you haven’t been out to the lake for a long time, you may want to free yourself up and make a boat donation to the Love Harder Project. We even pick up your donation of jet skis and Sea Doos!
Do you live in a retirement community where you drive around in golf carts much of the time? Are you looking for an upgraded Club Car? Don’t forget you can make a golf cart donation to the Love Harder Project through Cars2Charities.
Do you belong to a motorcycle club? Or maybe you just like to hit the highway on your own. When it’s time for a new bike, donate a motorcycle to Love Harder Project – we handle it the same way we do any other auto donations.
That ordinary vehicle you hop on or in every day has value – even when you want to replace it. You can put your resources toward lowering the amount of bullying kids are going through these days with a car donation to the Love Harder Project. Just call us when you’re ready.
