Tell the Truth Day: 5 Reasons Why Honesty Is Always the Best Policy

Pinky Promise | Goodwill Car Donations

On July 7th, Celebrate the Day Dedicated to Telling the Truth

Life is complicated enough as it is, and lying can make it even more so. Whether it’s for big moments or small ones, there will always be occasions when we find ourselves faced with two options: either to tell the truth or a bold lie.

Lying may sometimes feel like the easier way out. That’s why we’re tempted to ignore the truth altogether. For some people, the truth is difficult to say as it can either put them in a bad light, be disappointing for other people, or lead them into awkward situations.

Every July 7th, we celebrate a day dedicated to telling the truth. It’s Telling the Truth Day! The event aims to promote truth-telling and encourage people to refrain from lying.

Life is simpler and more liberating when we tell the truth. You’ll end up happier and less stressed in the long run, too!

Begin a journey to a more honest version of yourself by using Telling the Truth Day this July 7th as a motivator for you to avoid lying and encourage others to do the same.

Goodwill Car Donations has listed the top 5 reasons why telling the truth is always a good idea:

  1. Telling the truth is much simpler.

Why stress yourself out concocting an elaborate lie? Telling the truth is so much simpler, and that’s the end of it! Sure, it may put you in situations you don’t want to be in, but better to face them now than be unprepared in the future. Eventually, the truth will always come out.

  1. You’ll have people’s respect.

People always respect those who tell the truth. Since not everyone values honesty, those who tell the truth usually stand out from the crowd.

  1. Lying is stressful.

You’ll always worry about what might happen to you or what people might think of you if they find out that you lied to them. You’ll always be wary of what you say to people — whether or not it will corroborate your lie. This will cause you to suffer from stress.

  1. The truth will always come out.

This isn’t just a saying — it does happen! You may blurt it out accidentally or someone else may spill the beans. The truth will eventually come out, and the outcome won’t be pretty.

  1. You grow more as a person.

Telling the truth makes you grow on the inside. It takes maturity to tell the truth instead of a lie. You’ll find yourself growing more as a person when you constantly choose the truth over fibbing.


Open Your Eyes to the Plight of Your Community’s Disadvantaged Residents

On Tell the Truth Day this July 7th, open your eyes to the truth about what’s happening to the less fortunate people in your community. See the reasons why they’re living miserable and impoverished lives.

When you take a close look at them, you’ll find out that they’re suffering from disabilities, lack of education, job experience, or essential skills, and other personal issues that make living a big challenge.

You can easily lend them a helping hand by simply donating your old and unwanted vehicle to us here at Goodwill Car Donations. We’ll use your donation to improve the lives of the disadvantaged residents of your community.

We will auction off your vehicle and turn over the proceeds to the Goodwill organizations serving your area. These Goodwill organizations are IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofits that cater to disadvantaged Americans. They use the funding to sustain their delivery of critical services to their beneficiaries. These services include job and skills training, career opportunities, vocational and educational services, internship programs, financial support, disability benefits, and other critical community-building support services.

Expect to be sufficiently rewarded for your charitable contribution. We’ll pick up and tow your vehicle for free wherever you are located in the United States. Your donation will also entitle you to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

Moreover, your act of charity will bring you an immense sense of satisfaction, knowing that you’ll be contributing to the growth and development of your community by empowering your needy fellow residents through work and learning.

We accept almost all types of vehicles, including those that are no longer in good condition
