FenderWells has joined the international #GivingTuesday moment.
Entering its seventh year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.
The Big Ideas Behind #GivingTuesday
#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.
As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
Fender Wells was born out of a life-long appreciation for custom cars, and our many years supporting clean water initiatives around the world. During the course of donating literally thousands of dollars for clean water and attending countless car shows and auto parts swap meets to complete a ‘67 El Camino frame-off restoration it became clear that many other ‘Gear Heads’ were likewise concerned about the less fortunate.
This realization, coupled with a garage full of spare parts, led Sherry (my wife) to encourage me to sell them for clean water. How come I didn’t think of that? I began to promote this idea with other Gear Heads who not only thought it was a great idea, but donated spare parts of their own. Thus, Fender Wells, ‘Getting Water Where Needed Today’, was born and organized as an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
Through this, the Fender Wells’ PIC – PAC – SHIP model was also born. Just send Fender Wells 3 PIC’s of your donated item, We list on eBay and send you a shipping box. You PAC the donation part in a box. We send you tax deductible receipt, a pre-paid SHIP label and schedule home pick up when sold. It’s that easy.
AND NOW we can accept clear-title car donations from anywhere in the U.S! Pickup within 48 hours!
We give to various clean water initiatives already at work in disaster locations from the sale of donated vehicles or their parts and personal gifts. Recently, Fender Wells gave to the American Red Cross, Water Mission, BRAC, Global Belief Project, Hope of Life, Ridge to Reefs, Poured-Out, Water.org , WaterStepand others. This is why the smallest gift, car, or spare part donation can so impact a life. Please join us.
