Let's share our blessings!

If we will only count our blessings, we will know that our lives are a lot better compared to other people living in poverty. Some people cannot even find stable jobs and had to eke out their finances to make both ends meet. Yes, we may have our share of problems but who doesn’t have one? What we should be thankful for is that we continue to receive blessings. And what is a better way to express our gratitude than to share our blessings? Just look around you and you will see a lot of people who badly need help.

The sad truth is even people who risked their lives to serve their country during wars now badly needed help. These people who were at the forefront of our fight to preserve peace and security in the country now make up a large portion of the poor and the homeless. Worse, some of them are handicapped and some are jobless.

It is a good thing that many organizations and generous donors are spearheading campaigns to help improve the quality of the lives of these veterans. Ordinary citizens can also lend a helping hand in whatever little way we can. It doesn’t have to be a monetary donation. Some organizations are accepting car donations. If you have an old car or truck, running or otherwise, stuck in your garage and you are unsure of what to do with it, why not just donate it? Your donations will help feed and treat the homeless veterans and improve the quality of their lives. They will also offer you car donation tax deduction wherein you will receive an IRS tax deductible donation receipt after they receive your donated vehicle.

One of these organizations is Vietnam Veterans of America which was chartered by Congress and has been in the forefront of various campaigns to support dedicated Veterans and their families for over 30 years. Their vehicle donation process is easy, fast and secure. They also offer free towing pickup services.

Make that decision to donate car and help these Vietnam veterans who sacrificed their lives for freedom. This act of charity will certainly go a long way.
