Giving Tuesday: 4 Simple Ways to Touch People’s Hearts

Generous Tip on Giving Tuesday | Goodwill Car Donations

Your Generosity Can Impact Others Greatly

Since the pandemic began early last year, the world has collectively been experiencing various challenges — emotional anguish, financial loss, mental stress, as well as physical and social restrictions meant to protect the public’s health against the deadly COVID-19 virus.

As the world reels from wave after wave of extraordinary ordeals, one thing remains strong at the core of humanity — kindness and generosity. Amid dire reports of mounting COVID-19 cases and fatalities, we also get to read stories of triumph of the human spirit as individuals and organizations continue to reach out to those in need, uplifting the needy during these trying times.

That’s why the objective of Giving Tuesday has become even more imperative. The annual event, which takes place on November 30th this year, is a global generosity movement that seeks to unleash the power of radical generosity.

Created in 2012 by two organizations, the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation, Giving Tuesday has a simple goal: to encourage people to do good. Since then, the movement continues to inspire millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

 

The 4 Simple Acts Kindness You Can Do

You can show your generosity whether in small or big ways. Such gestures will surely be appreciated by those whose hearts you’ll touch. Goodwill Car Donations offers these simple acts of kindness you can make on Giving Tuesday:

  1. Leave a generous tip.

While leaving a tip is customary for good service, surprise your server or barista with something extra. During tough times, a little extra cash can go a long way for people working in the service industry. It’s also a great way to show your appreciation for their work.

  1. Help out small businesses.

Patronize your local shops, restaurants, and small entrepreneurs and help promote their businesses by word of mouth. Supporting small businesses fuels the economy and encourages other entrepreneurs to venture into new and innovative businesses as well.

  1. Reach out to the lonely.

Reach out to an elderly neighbor or veteran who may be feeling lonesome.

  1. Support a nonprofit that helps the needy.

Pick a humanitarian nonprofit whose mission is close to your heart. Support it by donating even a small amount. You can even volunteer your time and skills to help its cause.

 

Support a Worthy Cause on Giving Tuesday

You don’t need to look farther than your garage to find a means to help disadvantaged Americans on Giving Tuesday. If you have an old and unwanted car, you can use it to help the men and women in your community who are burdened with disabilities, lack of education, essential skills, or job experience, and other limiting personal issues, such as being a former inmate. These disadvantages pose as tough barriers in their quest to live productive and fulfilling lives.

Simply donate that vehicle to us at Goodwill Car Donations. We will use your donation to uplift the lives of the needy people in your community.

We will sell your vehicle through an auction and use the proceeds to support the life improvement programs of the Goodwill organizations serving your area. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofits use the funding to provide deserving individuals with job training, employment opportunities, scholarships, livelihood assistance, disability benefits, and other critical support services.

Thanks to your donation, these services will enable the underprivileged residents of your community to attain financial stability.

You’ll also benefit from your charitable contribution since this will entitle you to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season. Also, we’ll provide you with our free towing service.

However, the best reward you’ll get is the satisfaction of serving your community by helping empower your less fortunate neighbors.

We accept nearly all vehicle types, even those that are no longer working. We can collect your donation anywhere in the country.
