Pediatric cancer is tough on everyone, especially patients in isolation. When you donate a car to Chat with Champs through SocialGood Fund, it puts walkie talkies in the hands of these heroic kids, which means they can communicate with each other and feel less alone.
When a child is sick there’s nothing in the world more important than alleviating the little one’s suffering. And thanks to the vision of one little girl, that mission has turned into action.
When you bring your baby home from the hospital, you hope to never bring them back for any reason again. The only possibilities you entertain are sprained ankles or bumps and bruises. But when a child has a cancer diagnosis, it leads you – and them – down a long, difficult path.
Most pediatric oncology patients are hospitalized for 3-5 days, while others are there for 21 days of treatment, says Chat with Champs, a company providing sick children with walkie talkies so they don’t feel so alone when hospitalized. It was one of these little champions who thought of the idea to begin with.
Ten-year-old Sarah Loza was enduring treatment for stage 4 cancer at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego and she was put into isolation frequently to protect herself and others while going through the difficult process. One of Rady’s weekly events is a hospital Bingo game for the kids, where they call out the numbers using walkie talkies. This inspired Sarah to form Chat with Champs, enabling kids with serious illnesses to talk to others even when they have to be isolated.
If you’re considering a change of car, imagine the joy you can bring to these youngsters who are in the toughest of situations. Cars2Charities can enable your vehicle donation to Chat with Champs through SocialGood Fund to make it happen. It makes you a part of bringing happiness to the hardship of pediatric illness.
By connecting patients with each other during treatment this outreach program strives to never let kids and their families feel alone while fighting cancer.
We take our cars for granted. We take our health, and that of our children, for granted. But being a resource for others in pain is really very simple.
The vehicle you drive brings you to a fork in the road every few years: Is it time for my car to move down the line so I can get something that meets my needs better?
If you find you’re in a rental car way too often (meaning your car is in the shop AGAIN) it may be a good fiscal move to make a change, which makes an auto donation to Chat with Champs more possible. Edmunds.com is a well-known authority on cars and the website talks about the unbelievably high costs associated with maintenance. For instance, at around 100,000 miles you often have to replace the water pump and other drive belts, which can cost $600-$1,000! Or if your transmission fails or you blow a motor – you’re talking about $3,000-$7,000 for repairs!
Your next decision is what to do with the car you don’t need – and here’s where you’ve got an opportunity. A car charity donation to Chat with Champs means you can benefit kids with cancer and get a nice tax deduction. And it costs you nothing. Not even time!

Yes, when Cars2Charities processes your vehicle donation, we send proceeds to Chat with Champs through SocialGood Fund, a financial partner to the organization. This nonprofit ensures you get your full tax credit, which is based on the selling price of the car.
It's one of the advantages of working with us. Our unique process maximizes your donation. After we pick up your donation vehicle, our technicians assess it for necessary alterations, which means it’s in tip-top shape for sale. Because these cars tend to sell for 25-50% more than cars without the changes, your write-off is higher. Everybody wins, because you’ve got a tax benefit, while Chat with Champs can purchase more walkie talkies for the kids!
If you usually just do a dealer trade-in or go to CarMax, you probably know the reasons a car or truck donation to Chat with Champs is a more advantageous process.

It’s a relief to know that you can write off 100% of the sale price of your vehicle. And one more thing about working with us – we follow IRS guidelines to the letter. After handling all the paperwork – even the DMV forms — we send you and SocialGood Fund a copy of IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale of your vehicle, indicating the final sale price of your car.
