Make Car Donation A Leap Day Tradition

Plenty of traditions and superstitions surround Leap Day and Leap Years. People are bound to assign special meaning to such a rare event. One example of this is Bachelor's Day, celebrated on Feb. 29 in Ireland. Bachelor's Day dates back to the 1200s, and was designated as the date when it was customary for women to propose to men, rather than waiting for them to make the move. Over the years this became somewhat of a tradition. 

If you'd like to make your own tradition, why not make Feb. 29 your day to donate a car? It's the perfect way to make the day special not only for yourself, but for all the lives you touch with your donation!

Enjoy The Benefits Of Donating Your Car On Leap Day

The nice thing about a Leap Year is that it gives you one extra calendar day that you wouldn't normally have. That's the perfect reason to use Leap Day as a time to get things done. If one of those things on your list is a charitable donation, you only need to set aside a few minutes to get it checked off.
