Recycle Cars for Homes this Earth Day! Press Release

Dear Affiliate partner,

Since the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, Earth Day has been an annual event for people around the world to celebrate the earth and renew our commitment to building a safer, healthier and cleaner world for everyone. Habitat donors don't need to wait for April 22 to help; every old gas-guzzler that is donated to Cars for HomesT reduces fuel consumption, reduces noxious emissions, and helps build homes. Earth Day provides a unique opportunity to promote recycling cars into homes. There are two ways you can help get the message out:

First, the attached press release is being sent to affiliates for release across the country. Don't miss out on this opportunity to inform your local supporters of the connection between that old boat, pickup, RV or car in their driveway and your work building homes. Please send the press release out today to all of your local media contacts. Be sure to personalize the press release by putting on your own name, contact information and affiliate information. Delete the yellow highlight that has made it easy for you to determine where changes need to be made.

Second, have your website manager put the following message and "nice car" image on the Home Page of your website. If you have an enewsletter going out this week, drop it in there, too!

"Recycle" Cars for Homes this Earth Day!
Did you know that the automobile is the most heavily recycled consumer product? 94% of the metal in a car is recycled! When you donate a car to Cars for HomesT, Habitat's car donation program, it is "recycled" to help families build homes. Learn more online or call 877.277.4344.

After April 22, consider keeping the tile and the information on your home page and just "tweaking" the title to say: "Every Day is Earth Day when you Recycle with Cars for HomesT!"

IF you don't already have CFH on your website, please take this opportunity to add the following search-engine friendly paragraph on your "donate" page, so that your local volunteers and donors know that donating a vehicle is an additional way they can support your work any day of the year.

Donate A Vehicle

Your car donation can help a family build a house and the hope of a better life! Car donations help Habitat for Humanity build houses in partnership with families in need of decent, affordable shelter. Donate a car, truck, boat, RV or other vehicle to Habitat's Cars for HomesT vehicle donation program by calling 1-877-277-4244 or visiting www.carsforhomes.org.

You can include the "Nice Car" image or download other CFH banners from the Cars for HomesT pages on My.Habitat at: http://my.habitat.org/Programs/CarsforHomes

Best wishes,

Sally J. Black
