It's an International Day of something today, and rather than being a bit of a naff reason to mention a brand of food or the celebration of a geeky hobby (which we never actually mind!) it's actually something very worthwhile... it's the International Day of Charity!

Annually observed on the 5th September, CarTakeBack is very proud to be part of the event by running Charity Car, which is partnered with a huge range of charitable causes covering everything from international humanitarian aid to regional animal rescue. 

The United Nations first declared the day in 2012 to raise awareness of charity related activities all over the world. The date is actually the anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa - so it's a fitting tribute to the life of an extraordinary woman who dedicated her existence to helping others.

Moving forwards, individuals and organisations the world over are supposed to use this day to encourage charitable activity, so it would be more than remiss of us not to talk about our fantastic Charity Car scheme and make sure all of our lovely customers are aware of what it does! Not only can you have an old car collected and recycled in an environmentally responsible way, if you use Charity Car, the car's proceeds will be donated to your chosen worthy cause through our scheme. Although scrap prices are at a historical low these sums of money are still hugely beneficial to the causes we work with and they are incredibly grateful for the donations coming in.

If you want to find out more or simply take a look at our beautiful new Charity Car website do visit www.CharityCar.co.uk and don't forget to tell your friends. It is the International Day of Charity after all!
