The Original 1-800-Charity Cars Helps Out "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"

PENSCOLA, FL — ABC’s award winning television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition transforms the lives of struggling families with the gift of a beautiful new home. America’s award winning charity The Original 1-800-Charity Cars transforms the lives of struggling families with the gift of a free charity car. This week the wish granting enterprises have teamed up to transform the lives of a struggling Florida family with the dual blessings of a beautiful new home and a critically needed car.

“Working with the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition staff was inspirational” reflected Brian Menzies, CEO of 1-800-Charity Cars. “It was a beautiful and bonding experience. Everyone involved instinctively understood that the experience of helping others transforms the giver.” He added, “The families we help are indeed fortunate but, truth be told, we really are the lucky ones…The joy truly is in the giving”.

The Original 1-800-Charity Cars, www.800CharityCars.org , has provided over 4000 free vehicles to struggling families all across America. The national nonprofit has recently launched its free car / social networking website, www.FreeCharityCars.org , which 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. As a result of the phenomenal popularity of its website brimming with a plethora of heart wrenching and heartwarming stories, this unique, one-of-a-kind charity may even have a television show in its future modeled after Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
