A few months ago, my boyfriend's beloved Subaru wagon broke down coming home from a trip to Big Sur leaving us stranded in Santa Clarita, two-and-a-half hours away. (We had to rent a car to get back to L.A.) Instead of having it towed to his mechanic with unknown problems (possibly big ones), my very awesome boyfriend contacted Cars 4 Causes and donated the Subaru to charity.
Here's how it works: Cars 4 Causes picks up your car, fixes whatever issues it might have and then puts it up for sale. A percentage of the proceeds then go to the cause of your choice.
Well, I didn't know it at the time, but my aforementioned awesome boyfriend designated Much Love Animal Rescue as his charity. And he recently received a letter stating that the Subaru sold for $1900, all of which will go directly to the rescue.
Note to men (or women) with dog-loving partners: If you want to score MAJOR POINTS with your girl, this is the way to go.
