New idea shifts fundraising into top gear
You can get a tax deductible donation by donating your old jalopy to benefit Arthritis SA.
It's called Charity Car http://www.charitycar.net.au, a bold and innovative idea that lets you get rid of that old car threatening to rust away in the driveway by having it collected and recycled – at no cost to you – with a donation for its market value going to Arthritis SA. Arthritis SA will send you the tax deductible receipt for that value.
