I have been on FFC for about 3 years now. I hope I will get a car soon, but move than the prospect of that, it is being able to help others in need. The promoting is fun too. I recently email a local radio station and they plugged the site on there station asking for their listeners to donate the cars they no longer want. I plan on emailing other stations. Please try to find it in your heart to help this charity if you can. We all need help in our lives at one time or another. Onlyyou56

I have been a member of the Charity Cars site for a few years now. It is amazing to see people actually reaching out and caring the way they do. Though I am still in need of transportation, this organization offers a sense of relief that I am not alone and someone out there is listening. Keep up the good work Charity cars cause the impact that you have is more than you know!

I have been on Free charity cars.org for about 2 years now. I am still in need of a car and i know that the only way i can get a car faster is to make people in my state aware of the need of donations. I have made many calls to lhe local paper and news but no one seems interested in helping. I post every day that i am stressed and worried about how i am going to get my disabled husband to his doctors appointments. I have lost friends i thought i had because i have to ask them for rides all the time. I know that one day i will get my dream of owning a vehicle. i do have a few friends that don't live in the area spreading the word about free charity cars also. But it doesn't ease the stress and worry i live with every day that goes buy that i don't have my own vehicle. I have prayed that many people get the help they need and that i one day too get the help i need. I am starting school in april or trying to start school in april. I know that a car doesn't mean much to some but to others it is away of living it is a way to get groceries with out having to pay someone to go to the store for you.
I don't really care what the car looks like all i care about is it is dependable and gets somewhat good gas mileage and that it is easy for my husband to get in and out of since i am his soul caregiver and he has to walk with a cane. He served his country for 8 years and with his health i pray each month that i will get the call that so may of you wish you would get.
I am really excited for those who have received their car and i am praying for the rest that still need the help. these days times are tough. I know that the world isn't the same place it was years ago when you could leave your door unlocked at night and your neighbor would watch out for you and your things. today we have to keep our doors locked and don't trust some of the neighbors that have moved in.
Sorry for ranting on and on but i feel strongly about alot of what i write. I mean you don't know someone from just a few words you get more with your whole story than you do with just a few words.
if and when i receive my car i will still come back here to help others with getting their car it is the least i can do to help others in teh community of so many that are having a rough time because of the way the world is today!
thank you and god bless

I've been on this site for a little over a year. Casting votes and making new friends has been a joy for me. I have seen many blessed with cars and I know my time will come soon. Charity Cars is a blessing to so many people that would not have a car or even hope of getting a car.

I am a 70 year old man, who has many medical problems. I don't know how far I am reaching by asking for a car, or pic-up truck to let me get to my many Doctors visits each month. I have a 1992 Oldsmobile that can be barely driven, but the frame, has rotted away, and mechanic said that it would cost thousands to fix. my income is $757.00 a month, and I just wanted to ask, in hopes that something can happen. I am without transportation, and really at the mercy of maybe I will's. I can not stand long. I have had 19 surgeries, and have implants in body. I rent a room from landlady, but she is never here to give ride, as she works. I just need any help that's available. If none, then I thank you anyway for what you do. All I can do is hope. I have faith, but without any works it is dead. If you can help, You have no idea of what it would mean.

Thank You

This is the only organization that gives cars to anyone in need. I've come across a few that specialize in helping single parents or veterans but none for the disabled. I had signed up 4 years ago but really didn't do much with it. The company requires daily participation in a voting system. I'm not sure I'll ever have enough votes to receive a car but this is my only hope of ever having one. If I had the money and knowledge I'd probably try and start a charity that gave or repaired cars for the disabled but since I don't this is the only place I have to turn to.

No other agency will help those handicapped/disabled, believe me I have asked. I have promoted the agency too the Ellen Show and Oprah in the hopes that the FCC/US will be noticed and receive funds or vehicles. Many of us have signed petitions so that the Federal government donates cars/vehicles too them so that they can be reused when ever possible vs fill our landfills. Please give this worthy cause and Members like Sizzling who need a hand up a chance too be independent of others again! The process can be long and exhausting some like Sizzling have hung in with the charity for years.

I am lulutowers on FCC. I love FCC. The most wonderful people in the world. If you get a car you are lucky, but you get oh, so much more there. The love , you can feel over the internet. People who understand. When youre lonely you can go there and talk to anyone. The site is literaly a life saver. I wake up at night crying and upset and go there and find someone to talk it out too, and it doesnt matter who, because they are all Angels. I sure do need a car, but I got so far is so much more. Everyone needs to be a member and love would spread everywhere. I know God will truely bless Brian and all the staff. And what a happy feeling it is when you see someone get a car. It doesnt matter at all that it wasnt you at the time. It just restores your faith in mankind. Kitty

I love FCC (freecharitycars.org ) I have made hundreds of new friends, they give people hope when you feel all hope is lost, they inspire you to continue on your path, they offer suggestions and prayer when needed, I cant say enough about how helpful everyone at FCC has been to me, I would say they are the best people to work with, I am a volunteer, And I have to say everyone gives love and understanding,
what they share about themselves makes them closer to you then anyone you know outside of FCC
thanks to my friends at FCC I love you all :)

I've been a member of Charity Cars for quit some time now and made a lot of new friends and accumulated a lot of votes. Although I'm still without transportation, I know that God will make a way for me soon, and that the plans He has for me is for me. I also feel as though my season is near, and because I am a Christian, I have decided to give all of my votes to recipients like myself that could use them, 200 votes at a time. It is better to give than to receive, and I believe in my heart that God is going to make a way for me soon. There are so many worthy and needy recipients, and I would like to share with all of them, but such as I have, I'll share with as many as I can. THIS IS A GREAT ORGANIZATION THAT HAS HELPED A LOT OF NEEDY PEOPLE, AND CONTINUES TO DO SO. BE A BLESSING TO SOMEONE TODAY. GOD WILL BLESS YOU FOR IT.

I was born with a birth defect called Gastroschisis. That is my small bowel on the outside of my body. I had numerous surgeries for bowel obstructions. At age 14, I had a Small Bowel Transplant. At time of transplant, I only had 43cm of my bowel. A normal person has 300cm of there bowel. Because of this, my mom was laid off of work, because she had to take care of me.I am out of work at this time. I need a car to get back and fourth to my dr appointments,school, and job interviews. Which I had to put a hold on.

When I first got on to FCC, I was just amazed! The people feel like family and are so sweet and truly care. This is all completely free to join & to receive the car. The more you vote, the more others vote for you. It is a very trustworthy site.

Free Charity Cars is not just a non-profit organization. We are a family and we share stories and support each other. Whether it is good or bad, we send messages to one another, and when one family member hurt we all hurt and when a family receives a car we share in their happiness. All of us here at Free Charity Cars needs a car, but what people don't understand it's not just the car. It's giving those that are struggling another chance to start over. There's a lot of people on this site that's been here for 3 or 6 years waiting for a donation. We also have people here promoting and helping the organization, but I have to say we are all patient in this organization, thanks to Brian Menzie, Michelle Keys, and Reggie. These people give us hope and they always say we are family and we are here to help each other and we are. That's one thing about our charity we have faith that someone will come through and support. Jesus believes in support and helping those that don't have and we at Free Charity Cars believe and know that there is someone out there.

FCC is a great honest ,trustworthy site and Organization helping thousands of people I thought this couldn't be true ran across this site randomly searching through Google I was looking for help I signed up and not only can you receive assistance with a car ,they provide assistance with other things if you love helping people you can make a donation through freecharitycars.org website its a great place to give and receive.I have seen a lot of people receive a vehicle.its an excellent site they're not asking
anything from you just help spread the word .the only downfall is you're not going to receive a vehicle immediately but thats not what its about. If you love to help people give them a try at www.freecharitycars.org if you love helping someone this is the place to be I'm not just saying something there are a lot of wonderful people on there .

My user name is Welepores I'd like to say Free Charity Cars does more than gives you hope that one day you will receive a car. It is also a large caring community of people just like your self that gives you support and friendship when you most need it. We all have a story to tell and FCC is a place where you find others to share and not be harshly judged. A place to find comfort in the chaos that life sometimes throws at us. You give and get support and learn ways to help yourself and others by voting and promoting .

I just found out about this Free Charity Cars and i am hoping that mt story is heard and that i can be chosen for a vehicle sooner then later. I also am still trying to figure out how to get to sign up for a vehicle. My profile is only 57% complete and dont know what else to do.. But here is my story and why i have joined this website and i hope i can reach out to someone who can help me get my story heard and receive a car. I am a single young mother of two little girls and one on the way and will be here in a couple months. i just moved back to Va to live with my mother and focus on going back to college and get my own place and car. But about a week ago my mother and i got into a fight and she put her hands on me while she was drunk(mind you i am 7 months pregnant). Then told me she wanted me out of her house. So thanks to my amazing friend for letting me stay with her til i can get on my feet. but i need to have my own place before my 3rd and lat child arrives. I have a seasonal job i will be returning to in April but only for a couple weeks and hopefully i can make enough money for a deposit for an apartment, But in the mean time i still need a reliable vehicle that can get my children and i to and from school, doctors appointments, grocery stores ect.. Its not easy having kids and not having a vehicle. Thanks for reading my story and i hope my prayers get answered and so do yours.. thank you very much and God Bless..

Hello, my name is Christina. I stumbled across Free Charity Cars by accident (all the credit goes to God). Having been a member for only a week I have made so many friends and an incredible amount of support. I am a survivor. Being without a vehicle makes it difficult to things many people would normally take for granted...everyday tasks such as grocery shopping, getting to dr apts & the pharmacy, etc. But also I have not seen my babies (ages 3 & 4) since July 22, 2010 because I do not have any transportation and they live 3 hours away (this is killing me the most). I am on a fixed income with limited resources and no way to get a car. Feel free to read my full story on the Free Charity Cars site. We all vote for each other, its wonderful. It is a life-changing experience. I would encourage everybody to join or to donate if you can. Spread the word Free Charity Cars is a Godsend, an answer to so many prayers... God bless you all and the work you do.

I have been a volunteer for Free Charity Cars for about a year; my user name is Vickivol. I had no idea what a blessing it would be when a friend asked me to help her get a vehicle to transport her wheelchair-bound mother (user name STONIS) . This organization not only provides vehicles when they are donated, but also empowers its members by involving them in the promotion process. This online community is truly a community of people who care for, encourage and support one another. I am proud to be a part of such a kind and caring community!

Hi. I am Marymom on FCC. I came to FCC to help my daughter,momof4boyz1girl, to try and get a vehicle. She is the mother of five. She has two teenage sons with kidney disease. It is a hereditary disease, rare, and incurable. The younger of the two, is currently on Peritoneal dialysis, provided at home, by his mom, 10 hours per night. He is awaiting a kidney transplant, when and if a kidney becomes available to him. They were recently left, by the kids dad, without a vehicle and mom is unable to get to a job due to no transportation, since family is scattered, by towns and state. Also, there are no buses, or any mode of transportation, since it's a small town. She takes care of all these children on her own and deals with many stressors.

Hello everyone! I am a member on www.freecharitycars.org. I recently joined this site because I am a single mom with 3 kids, and sadly have no type of transportation around me. What they have done is give me hope. I have never seen another charity out there quite like this one, and believe me I have looked. Their main focus is to provide free donated cars to struggling families to assist them in their transition from dependancy, to self sufficiency. They've awarded over 4500 free vehicles nationwide. They are also the past winner of the prestigious Walt Disney World outstanding community service award. I am not only here to write a review, but to also promote the FCC, spread the word about this awesome charity. They make the process as fair as they possibly can by providing a forum where people can engage the public proactively to pursue their dream of car ownership. Now, to a lot of people this may not seem like much, but for people who have noway to get their kids to school, get to dr appts, even get to a store, this is life changing when awarded a vehicle. I know first hand how hard it is to get anywhere! Not only do you try to pursue car ownership, but you get to know others, and form friendships. Encourage each other, and give others hope. If you are looking to donate a vehicle, or even give a money donation, this is one you should consider. These people who run this charity are true angels. They work very hard at mmaking people's dreams come true. To change and improve peoples quality of life in general. Anyways, if you join, (which you should!) Look me up! I am Samanthag612. Ty for reading this and please, if you want to donate a car, or even money, it helps more than you can ever imagine.

I was awarded a 2001 Nissan Maxima, I am very excited. A Word From FreeCharityCars CEO Welcome to FREECharityCars.org. We want you to know that we understand how difficult life can be without a vehicle, having had the experience ourselves. Although our charity's car-donation / distribution program was established in 1996, this new website was soft-launched July 4th, 2009 and was subsequently revamped and re-launched April 26th 2011. This site was designed to make the process of choosing who receives a free vehicle as fair as possible by providing a forum where individuals can engage the public and pro-actively pursue their dream of car-ownership.

Articles about the program have appeared in a host of publications including People Magazine, Women's World Magazine, Motor Trend, The Non-Profit Times, and The Chronicle of Philanthropy.

I am a member of free charity cars for about six months. I am on disability and have a limited income, which every month gets used in bills, food, medicine etc. I take medicine every day for epilepsy and osteoarthritis and a few other medical problems. Also, had brain surgery in 1998. I do not have a car because I sold the one I had because I couldn't afford the payments on the car and the insurance for it. That left me with no car and no job, since I had no car. I especially like this group because hope is very important to everyone and to be sulf-sustaining is also. With this charity I hope to be again. I would like to go back to work part time and do what I enjoy most which is medical work. With this charity I believe I will. I do promote also.

I joined Charity Cars about a year ago not really knowing what I was doing at the time. All I knew at the time was I was in desperate need of a car and it was easy to apply for. Little did I know how involved I would become.
Each day I became more and more involved as I voted for others. I found myself reading other peoples stories and sending messages of encouragement and well wishes, offering support and often sending my votes to others who I felt where in more need than myself.
I found Charity cars to be a community site, a large family all there to help one another as we not only had a common bond of all needing cars but also had so much more in common. Job loss, death in our family, disability, the stress of life and the joys also are shared as we watch others receive cars. Nothing is more wonderful that to see a Beep Beep come up on the screen and no that someone has been awarded a car.
This Jan. I was lucky enough to be awarded a car and feel very blessed. Without Charity Cars this would not have been possible, they are truly a wonderful charity and give so much hope to those who have lost so much and they give hope to so many each day who spend hours a day voting for one another. Hope is the one thing that keeps us going when times are tough.

I joined this site a month ago and I've already met some very nice people and developed friendships with some. By joining this site, not only are you helping yourself, but you are helping others as well. It's a win win situation! Besides The Humane Society, this is the only other organization that I believe in. :)

FCC is a non profit organization to help people in need. The support from other members is very rewarding. You don't have to need a car or have a car to donate to join this site. The general public can join and vote for those in need. Can you think of a better way to help others? I get as much from voting for other people from the convenience of my home and knowing that I can do a small part to help others even though I don't have money or the means to help in any other way. It's Awesome! Time is a precious commodity and think about how much it means to spend our time helping each other. You just can't place a monetary value on true compassion and therefore it means more than anything else this world can offer! Try it. You may get a bigger reward than you have ever expected. I haven't received a car even though I'm in need but I've received something far greater. Caring and kindness in a world that I viewed as selfish and uncaring for far too long. Thanks FCC for creating a community where we can all share with each other.

Donated my car on 7/12/2011 and did all the paperwork they required to transfer title so vehicle could be auctioned; there was no lien on this vehicle. Imagine my surprise a few months ago when state sends me bill for state registration and license. I talk to them and vehicle was never transferred. I mail them my receipt from donation. Now 2/21/2013...almost 18 months later...I get a notice from Police Dept that the car has been impounded since 9/19/2011...a little more than 2 months after donation...and I owe thousands of dollars ($20/day) to get it out or they will sell it. WHAT the heck is the matter with these folks and where was the car for those two months and what was it being used for? VERY SUSPICIOUS

Original Charity C. 12/27/2017

Obviously one of our competitors making up an outrageous claim in a feeble attempt to disparage our charity. We are a 501-C-3 non profit charity as well as a licensed motor vehicle dealer so we can handle the title work properly. Totally bogus made up claim.

Free Charity Cars is one of the most outstanding organizations available. They have helped more than 4-5,000 people with dependable transportation, and allow them to get and maintain a job, get groceries,, and go get the medical attention that many on the site are unable to have. What sets them apart from for-profits non-profits, is that 100% of money received goes directly to the recipient. Brian, the CEO of the organization, is to be highly commended for his contribution notonly to his home state of Florida, but to reach out across the country, and supply struggling individuals with the one thing many of us take for granted--a car. I wholeheartly support this organization, and anyone should feel safe that any contribution is being used wisely.

Free charity cars gives away cars everyday, Not only have they helped me but they have helped so many people in dire need of transportation for many reasons. I will always support this charity and if you were to go read some of the stories at the charities site you will also understand why it's important for those of us who care for others to help the best way we can thank you!
