God is so good! I am eternally grateful to FCC staff that work so hard to help us. I am thankful to all of my friends here that have voted for me. Especially to those who continued to vote on a daily basis. I would encourage people to vote from your friends list and not just the activity list. People that have not been voting for a week or 6 months even, have shown back up on my activity list and gone on to continue voting again. We don't always know what anther's strife in life is. Please be kind. We would not be here if there wasn't a great charity that is dedicated to help us the people in great need.So if you are able to help any charity help them because they do help people who are in dire need. Thanks for your time reading my message for FCC charity god bless you and your Family in all things.user name markmwb

I came to Free Charity Cars years ago. Someone that i knew told me about free charity cars and ask me to join this to help others with votes as well as myself to get a vechile. I got to know some awesome members in free charity cars and they all got vechiles. Those members were goin to help me with votes but i had a eventful happening which set my husband and i to lose our home that we lived in apartment. So i was unable to help with votes and get votes for almost a year. When i did come back i started voting i had learned that all the members that i had voted gotten vechiles so i had to start from scratch and make some friends again on free charity cars so i could get some more votes and alot of praying to earn a vechile. Since all this i have had my up and downs with things happening but i always come back each time trying and voting for others. The free charity cars really has helped ton of people in getting a vechile of some kind and to be free of stress in needing a vechile. Alot of us still need a vechile to help our daily lives. My husband and i are disabled. My husband has emphysema and copd and anxiety disorder and was recently had epsiode of copd exbuation where is he could not breath. Learned that few weeks ago his lungs are flat and not working right and badly damaged. Doctors told him he now has less than a year to live. Breaks my heart i don't want to lose him just yet. Trying to get this prepare and settled. He is 57 years old and on oxygen. I have neurological disorder from a accident i had when i fall on ice broke my lower back. So i have alot of nerves some are damage and other no feelings at times. I am deaf and wear aid to hear, I have copd and asthma, allergies.. just learn i am now allergic to grass of all kinds. So it hard to enjoy live and not be outside alot. But i keep on voting and hoping and praying for a vechile. I truly believe this free charity cars really do make dreams come true for many people as i hope one day that will happen for my husband and i. Especially before my husband leaves this earth i would love to make some memories to be able to go places with him. Free Charity Cars can use all the help they can with donations and vechiles to help others in need. Please help us all. It a great organization to help Free Charity Cars. Where there is hope for many and more to come that coming to free charity cars for help. I can stress how important it is to help Free Charity Cars. I have been promoting on facebook and word of mouth, voting each day and receiving votes. For those that have never beem tp Free Charity Cars come and check it out. It a great site that is full of people and support and prayers and hope. You will be glad that you helped free charity cars and become a donor or a voter and support others there. Bless free charity cars in all it has done already and much more. My id is sunsetbayus at free charity cars. Believing and hope and prayers in free charity cars.

My name is Scott Wesney, I'm 29, I love my Ohio state Buckeyes, and I suffer from mental and physical disabilities. For the first time in my life, I am publicly admitting what I have been hiding for years silently suffering from. I am trying this site to honestly share with the people what exactly all the stuff i suffer drom are exactly and in hopes and prayers of one day recieving life alterimg news that someone has donated a vehicle and i can start my life and battle with the illnesses that have taken everything from me. I am praying it brings my family and myself some desperately needed reliefe and hope in my future struggles. It is my truest and only hope to raise enough support and help in finally standing up against these disabilities that have slowly changed my life into a truly honest nightmare. This is it, my one and only cry for help to obtain the one last thing needed to get "ME" back. I have to try and raise money, votes,charity, whatever because I cannot give up just yet. I have many people to help yet and I am finally trying to take a stand and finally get a shot at being freed from these brutally challenging and severely debilitating physical and mental health issues I have been diagnosed with and cannot stand up to without the help of others. I am currently facing PTSD, Severe agoraphobia, several different types of O.C.D., ADHD, G.A.D., Panic disorder, clinical depression, Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia aka "The Suicide Disease" (A staggering 70% of people diagnosed end up taking their own lives because it is one of the worst pains known to man) severe memory loss, and right eye vision loss. It's unknown which are attributed to a Traumatic brain injury that went undiagnosed or several other traumatic experiences or just plain bad luck. In 2008, I was attacked from behind leaving a pool hall with a female friend of mine. I was immediately rendered unconscious from the blow to the back of my head and literally gained and lost consciousness 4 different times before the whole ordeal was over and the offender was long gone. My head and face literally stomped and kicked in leaving 3 titanium plates and screws in my face and a violent and brutal individual in prison for only 4 years (thanks to cameras and my female friends testimony) and then, it's back to almost normal life for him. Meanwhile, I knew nothing of law and was told by the D.A.'s die to felony charges and lack of prior job history, there was no reason to ask for restitution because he'd never pay it. So my life is shattered as I remain victim to his actions every second of every day since then and everything else goes back to normal besides my life, my life that was stolen from me. I had a great life, hundreds of friends, and work or school options. Now, even normal everyday things like walking in the sun to my mailbox are hard to deal with. I don't talk about it with almost anybody because I fear rejection and disbelief and have been accused of all kinds of hurtful things. Without a true source of funding next to a miracle like winning the lottery lol, it's nearly impossible to get the specialized treatment I need. I'm over my head in medical bills, (about $175,000 worth) & already had to liquidate anything and everything worth a dime just to see family Dr's throughout the years & so many different types of medications that for awhile, I was a zombie & I don't want that ever again for myself. I just want to live a somewhat normal life like everyone else. I'm stuck right now and I am so scared and vulnerable. I got off the crazy amounts of opiate pain meds and patches I was prescribed due to the fact of needing more and more and the fact of becoming dependant. I don't know what to do... I've never been a weak individual, I've never needed anyone else to help me out in this way. I know that I am asking a huge favor of you, but truthfully I don't have any other options. I found the site by accident looking for any options. Who knows, maybe this is where my miracle will pop up. I've had disabilities plaguing my life for years, but I am exhausted and cannot keep up anymore. I need true divine intervention & am so scared of what's next. I pray that through your help and support, I'll have the necessary means to stand up and fight back against what's truly sucking the life out of me. I know I can beat this but it's going to be very hard & I need a lot of love, help, and support. I HAVE to TRY to get ME back you guys! I want to be better, to make a future out of helping others with similar problems. I don't want anyone to face the emotional pain and embarrassment I have these past years hiding behind a fake persona. Please, donate today & help me secure a better tomorrow. As of now, I am facing little to no treatment options. Psychiatrists, Cognitive Therapy, Specifically Specialized Therapists For Treatment Of Several Different Diagnoses OCD, P.T.S.D, Panic disorder ect, Chronic Neurological Pain Specialist, Neurologists, E.N.T. Dr, Someone Who Specializes In Traumatic Brain Injuries, Eye Dr, Radiologists Specific To Brain Trauma And Scans are needed & those are just off the top of my head. I'm so scared of nobody caring about what's needed to get my life back & crumbling under the immense depression, anxiety, extreme panic, and intense fear of failure. If I can just raise enough to get a reliable used car to make the 130 mile trip to Columbus ans back maybe twice a month, it'd be a huge blessing & way for me to start the process of healing. All I'm asking for is a chance to get my life back. Beating this is my #1 & only priority. I want so badly to one day have a family of my own & to be productive in society. For that to happen, I have to start somewhere so until then I'll be Wishing upon every star... Please support/pray/donate/share. God Bless, Love Scott M. Wesney.

Ihope that with a little hard work and effort Ican one day get a car or truck. So Iask the judges to make Free Charity Cars the #1 Great non profit charity for 2014. So yes I think that this is the most amazing charity out there.

This organization helps give needy families a chance to succeed and provide for their families. They also promote team work and community by having everyone work together. As a result, friendships occur within the community. It's like being a part of a family. When members are awarded through the donation of the car, everyone cheers them on and the process continues. Great community of people. Please consider donating your time, money, or car donation. Thank you.

I don't go to my Twitter page too often, but when I checked it today, I found that two of the people I have been voting for have both gotten awarded cars! I am so happy for them! I vote every day and hope to win a car soon myself. I wish I had known about FCC before I donated my Malibu to the Humane Society last year, but I didn't find out until afterwards.

I found FCC quite by accident and was skeptical at first. After signing up and reading some of the stories I knew this is where I belonged. In the short time I have been here I have made wonderful friendships and even if I never receive a car, I will continue with FCC. They have given me hope of one day regaining my independence, despite my illnesses.

Their work with affiliate charities in different cities makes it possible for many to receive a reliable vehicle and have a second chance at life.

Free Charity Cars gives not only vehicles to those in need, but provides a platform for us to form friendships, get advice from others in the same situation, and sometimes just vent. But most of all, FCC gives us all that glimmer of hope that we so desperately need.

Joining FCC has been a tremendous blessing for me. I have met many good friends I love voting everyday and looking for new people to vote for. I am on disability and have not had a car for several years. I have been very blessed in having a friend that takes me to Dr. Appointments but I have to walk every where else. FCC has given me hope that I will have a car sometime soon. God bless FCC and all the donors and voters for their dedication in helping people in need.

In 2010 I was laid off from my job of 10 1/2 years and lost my Grand Marquis at the same time. Carless and jobless in Rochester NY is not a good position to be in - downtown and surrounding areas served by the limited bus service leaves very few jobs available. The best are in the suburbs, out of reach if depending on the bus. I started on FCC then. Shortly afterwards I realized what a great charity it is. It's structured as a nurturing community that helps each other out in the goal of having a car donated. I met very good people on the site, and loved the communal feel of it. After a couple years I still didn't have a car and had a very lousy job making barely minimum wage. I had given up on getting a car from FCC, but liked the community so much remained active ( except when my internet was down). Last month I received a call from them saying they had a car for me! And it is a gem... a Subaru Outback, 2002 with only 69,000 miles. It 's much , much nicer than I ever expected. Already I have had several job interviews I would have never been able to get to without a car, and have went to full time at my part time job - a significant increase in my income and only possible with a car. I can't say enough good things about this charity, and will support it any way I can . Thank you , Free Charity Cars, and Brian Menzes, the mastermind behind the ingenious design .

I have been a member of Free Charity cars for some time now. I joined the site to try and get a vehicle because I am disabled due to a crime that had been committed toward me that left me with severe injuries to my legs and my mind. I will never get better and walking is a daily struggle for me. Little did I know, that by joining Free Charity Cars, I would not also get the chance to be self sufficient again by maybe receiving a car, but I would also meet the most incredible people ever. So much love and caring for one another, it is amazing. Every one of the members has a unique story and the bonds that are made are not just due to the chance of getting a car, but also due to the fact that every one of us members are helping each other by just listening and advising each other. As a matter of fact, I just got of the phone with another member, after feeling the need to vent about some things. She listened and gave advice and now I feel a lot better :) .. There is so much more I could say about this site, but there is not enough space to write it all. I love Free Charity Car

I originally register for an account with freecharitycars.org to get a car, but shortly after registering, not only did I find unique people with experiences from all walks of life, but I also found friends. People who I can talk to about my day-to-day struggles. People who have had experiences like mine.
But not only that, they give me hope. I cant afford to buy a car because of my disability, and my children, so they give me hope that one day soon, maybe I will get that call. They keep faith alive, and bring amazing people together!
They truly are what America USE to stand for!

I have been shot by my husband on 07/27/2012, and moved into my own place for a year, met back up with my best friend (male) been friends for 9 years/great friends. he moved me out to alabama (saving me from the bad location)--so he said. wouldup being beat for over a year by him. once my dad found out (cause we had gotten into it and i asked to stay with my mom for a few days) he threw all mine and my daughters things -age12 and my sons things -age3 out onto the streets. even our beds, EVERYTHING. even the pearing knife my dead grandmother had left for me. any way once my dad found out, he had a stroke & a brain aneruism, was in the hospital for a lil over a month. I had no way to go visit him because the christmas before, my boyfriend had me sell my car to buy my kids christmass. alledgelly that was the only way they were going to be able to get, so i did. like a dummy. but they would have ben heart broken if they woke up christmas morning with nothing. HE had a car, so techinacally we had transportattion at the time. Anyways, while i was staying with my mom for those few days, it breecheed her lease contract--got her evicted :( . she found a place, but its $400.00 more a month more than what she was paying. and she is also on disibility, like my dad.so here i was, bringing both of my parents down with my problems, almost lost my dad cause of it. I called around....in my community and sorrounding communities theres NO help. only foodstamps & medicaid. so, the only thing i knew to do was go back. my kids were in no danger, they didnt even know about it, he made sure to wait until they were in bed where they wouldnt tell, they had a nice house to live in, he re bought their clothes, beds etc...., well some of it. It was fine for a whil. but after about three months, all hell broke out. it was worse than ever. I served him like a 1950's woman would her husband, these days you cant hardly find a woman that will do that, it still wasnt good enough for him. i tried my best to keep him happy where we would have a place to live and my daughter wouldnt have to swap schools again. Meanwhile the calls to both my mom and dad were lies, they were under the impression that everything was a-ok. . did not want them stressed at all. (they are not together btw) well, recentlly on 06/07/14, he split my head open, needed 7 stitches, but i refused them (because it was 2 am, and i had my kids-which this time they witnessed it- and i didnt want to be stuck at the hospital with no way to get home) >48 miles from my family. that was the straw that broke the camels back. I asked my mom if i could come back home with her, of course she said yes (although she cannot afford us) ---and my dad stil dont know what happened, he just thinks we mutually agreed that things werent working out. so, now, here i am, no job (he wouldnt let me work) no car to be able to go to a job if i had one. my moms wires are showing on her tires, so i cant use her car. i cant go to the housing athourity because without income, you cant have power on, and it wioll breech your leese. what am i to do?? tanf is $250 a month....and they want me to work 30 hours a week at their office filing paperwork, for $250 a month. what in the world is that???. both of my childrens dads are in prison-(my sons

I started on FreeCharityCars.org on April 11, 2014. The number of people who have become friends that vote for me each and everyday they are able is very humbling. I have had a few transfers of votes to help me as well. My story is that I am on mental disability and I have arthtitis in my left help as well as thin bones. It is difficult to walk any distance and we have to walk for we don't have a car. I think of all my friends as family and we send messages to each other. Either well wishes, congratulations, Happy BIrthday, depending on their status each day. This is the greatest place to get help and there are wonderful folks who are willing to help you. I love FreeCharityCars.org and all the voters. This is the greatest place to help getting a car.

I absolutely knew from my youth on that life was no bowl of cherries.
I grew up in a religious environment which helped me learn how not to whine about my lot in life.
When my husband abandoned me and his children shortly after I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis I understood that my faith was going to be tested like never before.
I didn't have a car or money and was forced to relocate in search of a place to lay my head. Still, I knew there would be opportunities for me to help myself.
First, I needed a laptop just to keep in touch with society and research who or what could help me to get back on my feet. Could not get a job without a car!

I gave up on that goal but I still needed a car so I could get to and from church, hospital, doctor and supermarket.
I am still in need of a vehicle but I found this great Charitable Organization that finds and gives away vehicles. I am very hopeful that I will receive one of these gifts after being a member for a few years now.
I have learned to promote this charity and I speak about it to all of my family and friends.
Charity Cars is by far one of the best Organizations out there that is doing something that is more practical than you would know unless you wake up one day without a vehicle to take you where and when you want to go. Relationships are ruined when you rely on them for a short amount of time to help you get to and from somewhere.
I know God is blessing this organization because God blesses those who help themselves and others!

There are so many people in need of reliable transportation (like myself) and this charity is an excellent opportunity to connect and pay it forward. I am a divorced mother of four kids with no car trying to make it and thought there was no way i could obtain transportation until I found this site! It has given me and others so much hope for betterment in our everyday lives. I truly appreciate the opportunity.

The help given to people in need here is priceless. The testimonials found on Charity Cars, Inc. speak for themselves, just browse through and read some of the stories where people have been assisted in getting their lives back after tough times, or giving someone a chance at mobility that may have not been possible without a donor car. If you have been thinking about donating your old car, please consider this organization, it is for a GREAT CAUSE!

I learned of the charity in needing a car myself. My current vehicle is inoperable as the engine is seized up. Here in rural Maine, only a handful of communities actually have public transit. I am not fortunate to live in one of those communities or even close to one. I am a former firefighter and also worked with the Dept of Defense in Maine with the Navy. I was disabled due to that service and have a wife and two sons (8&9) to care for as well. I am working with vocational rehabilitation to get retrained into a different line of work - but need a car to do that. Wont you please visit www.freecharitycars.org and vote for my family? (user name "dstubenrod"). I have not yet received a car and need an automatic as I have a lag brace on my left leg.

My therapist told me about FreeCharityCars.org when I informed her about my need for a personal vehicle. She knew I couldn't afford to buy one or carry a car note, so she gave me the tools I needed to see about getting one for free. I signed up immediately and have been an active member of the site since last June 2013. I'm hopeful that day will come when I get awarded a car because a few of my friends on the site have already been awarded one. This opportunity is available to anyone who qualifies free of charge, and I'm so grateful I found out about it. It's truly a blessing from God! (ljawara) LaToya Jawara

Then I found FREE CHARITY CARS. i signed up and it seems very legit. I am very thankful for having this website and more thankful that people do care enough to donate their car. And for that I am very appreciative of those people out there.

I am new to the FCC (Free Charity Cars Organization). I learned about them through a recipient of a new car!!! She was so excited to tell me about her experience with FCC that because of my need for a car, I decided to join as well. They are a very caring organization that helps people in need to get back their independence! The work they do is amazing. I have had such an awesome experience in the last week that I have joined, becoming friends with members and reading about their trials and tribulations being without transportation just like me. There are many members still on the sight after they received their cars helping people out and being so grateful about receiving their cars. Please help this organization to continue to do this great work that they do! Thank you

Thank you for providing me an opportunity to share about how great 800CharityCars.org is to me. I found this charity one evening while I was looking for someplace to receive assistance to obtain a vehicle. I am 51 years old and considered a senior by the University of Texas in Austin where I was studying Astronomy/Physics. My thought was to graduate with a degree in about a year and half, find a job and to establish myself in a science career. The funding ran out. Apparently there is a $60,000 limit on the amount of loan money from the government. I was only able to obtain 3 semesters and one summer at UT because I began my education at a two-year college then transferred to the 4-year college. Now I am close to being homeless. I have no car which makes it difficult to find a job and then to keep the job. Without transportation, life is exceptionally difficult. People with cars rarely stop to consider what it would be like without a car. Think about it. If there were not places like 800CharityCars.org, there would be a lot of people without the tool they need to give them a chance to survive in life. It was with great relief to consider that there might be hope for my future through 800CharityCars.org. I am working hard to build my portfolio on 800CharityCars.org so I can earn a car. The best thing about it is that EVERYONE on the site works together and cares about each other. That is what makes this organization so different from other organizations, especially if you are alone in the world. Giving a car to someone in need is like giving them a tool to make a better life for themselves. It is kind of like giving them a hand up so they can improve the quality of their life. If you have a car to give, please give it. If you can donate to 800CharityCars.org, please do so. Every contribution gets someone closer to self efficiency and moving forward to a better life. Thank you so very much.

This charity helps people in a very needed way. The site promotes community among people in need. The way it is set up allows people to make friends and share our lives with each other building an additional support system to deal with our life issues. While waiting for a car to become available we all vote for each other and get to know the situations. This charity is a great non profit!

I have seen the miracles that have taken place through this free organization.
Charitycars.org really does help others find reliable transportation through the humble generous donations of others. Please help support their cause.

I am sure that when someone gives, it makes them feel good knowing they have eased the burden of another person who otherwise would have nothing.

Thanks for your gift of life.

Free charity Cars is an amazing nonprofit organization. They not only help people stay mobile, but they give people hope. In a world where there is very little hope left, they give people a reason to keep trying. I have been a member since 5/31/2011, and have seen many people's dreams come true through this organization. I have met some very wonderful people since I have joined too. It gives a person a place to feel like they belong, and it gives hope. This organization is A miracle, I am very happy to be part of it.

I have seen many people in need get help from FCC. They help people, like myself, to possibly receive a vehicle for much needed transportation. I, myself have not received a car, but I have not givin up on FCC. I see all the good that they do for other people in need. I am waiting my turn, but I have faith that FCC will come through for me, and many other needy people. I never thought there was anything like this place out there, and I am truly blessed that FCC is there, they give people hope, which is something most people have lost. It's free, and easy, and the people running FCC are amazing!! This is definitely something EVERYONE should check into, if in need for transportation. They are saving people every month, just by getting then around,

This site gives hope to so many. Those who have received vehicles have had their lives changed by the generosity of our donors. God bless the donors, the FCC staff, and all my fellow members of FCC.

I signed up with FCC at the beginning of 2014. I had some difficulty understanding what I needed to do to receive a charity car, as well, as how I could help others. FCC is a very "user friendly" website and the staff has been remarkably attentive to helping guide me on problematic issues and questions. This is a wonderful charity whose mission is very important to assisting others to a level of self sufficiency.

I have been a client served at Charity Cars since 2009. They are such a wonderful charity, not only because of the cars given away, but I have made a lot of life-long friends in the process of being a member!. I received a car in 2010, and it helped me immensely, as I have MS and other things that I needed a car to get to appointments. But like I said, getting a car is only half of the joy I found with this wonderful charity! For that I would like to thank Brian Menzes, for creating this great charity!!

I have been a proud volunteer for into my 5th year now with Free Charity Cars. I am user StillKickin on Charity Cars, Inc. In the time I have been there, I have seen several helped by the generosity of the donating public, by the gifting of vehicles, for which they get a fair market tax deduction.
Working as a total non-profit charity, they depend solely on donations, whether monetary or vehicles.
They can help so many more in need of a hand up, just by a simple donation of an unused vehicle.
I am praying for a donation in my home state of WV , as I have been without a car for several years now, and want to be able to regain some semblance of independence.
No matter where you live, in any state of the union, if you can help, please consider helping out this amazing charity.

I have been with this organization as a volunteer for going on four years. I have seen many people helped by vehicles being awarded to change their lives for the better,so they can once again regain their independence.
I joined in 2010 and was in need of a vehicle myself at the time, I was able to acquire one on my own, and stayed to help others in any way I could/.
I have met many wonderful friends while there, and have to say, this charity has changed my life, by giving me a sense of purpose. I truly feel worth while and like I am making a difference in others lives.
Today I was very excited, as yet another deserving member got what we members of Free Charity Cars have come to call "The Call"; this is when a member is chosen to receive a vehicle that has been donated in their area. It is always wonderful to me to see someone helped dur\e to this charity being there first of all to help, and to the generosity of someone whom has donated a vehicle to empower someone's life.

I have been with this charity as a client for six months. In that time, I have seen numerous people receive a car. Receiving that car has changed their lives forever, but it's not just the cars. It's the love and support that each member receives from the people who run this charity and from each other that makes this charity so wonderful. We all truly become a family to each other. It would be so easy for those who have received a car to leave this charity and never look back. They don't because they want to stay on and continue promoting the great work that this charity does on a daily basis. I don't know of any other charity like this one. I have made many friends that will stay my friends for life. If I receive a donated car, I know that I too will stay on with this charity. Brian and his team have managed to create not just an outstanding charity but also a true family. I absolutely love FCC!

Hello I am stuck_in_iowa and I have recently joined charity cars. I ran a crossed their website during my frantic search for assistance in getting a vehicle for myself due to my 17 year old car finally giving up and not having the income needed to get it fixed anymore. Through charity cars I have met a lot of wonderful people from all walks of life with different stories of struggle and triumph. My biggest wish would be to win the lottery and donate cars to some much deserved individuals, but until then I will continue to vote and promote charity cars.

I have only been with 1800CHarityCars for a couple of months now and my user name is 1GreenIrishRose. I came across the site while looking for car help and signed up. It was easy to do and a great way to earn a chance to get a car that you so desperately need. It gives me something to do when I am having a rather difficult day because of health issues. You get to see that you are not alone in this troublesome world and that others are having a hard time , also. You get to read their stories, do you voting, send someone a message and choose your friends. I'm disabled, so on my bad days this gives me something to do. They really do need some cars donated to them, so they can use the to help people like me who need transportation to get to the doctors, groceries or work. It's a great charity that truly helps people in need, and a great tax deduction.

I lost my job due to my lack of transportation. I am struggling to make ends meat at this point and am at desperation. I live in the detroit area with my girlfriend and 3 1/2 year old son and im scared everyday that I will not be able to come up with the rent money where we live. I have no transportation to look for a new job to support the 3 of us. If there is anyone out there who reads this I am grateful for any help in any way. Thank you and god bless. I pray that I can find help through charity motors. It seems to help people and have a huge impact on their lives for the better..
