Charity “Kars 4 Kids” Accused Of Misleading Donors


AT A LUNCHEON IN MARCH, SHE LET IT SLIP SHE WOULD BE GOING TO WORK FOR THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. THE NATIONAL CHARITY CARS FOR KIDS IS ACUSED OF MISLEADING DONORS. CONSUMER JUSTICE INVESTIGATOR HAS BEEN LOOKING INTO THESE ISSUES AND YOU TALKED TO A NORTH TEXAS MAN WHO DID COMPLAINTS ABOUT CARS FOR KIDS. REPORTER: CARS FOR KIDS ACCEPTS CARS, BOATS AND MOTORCYCLE DONATIONS IN TEXAS AND ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. WELL ONE STATE TOSSES ATTORNEY GENERAL SAYS THE CHARITY SPENT LESS THAN 1% OF THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS RAISED ON KIDS IN HER STATE. THE CARS FOR KIDS JINGLE MAKES A SIMPLE REQUEST. JOHN HENDRICKSON OF VENUS, TEXAS HAD A CAR. THIS WAS A LITTLE MAZDA RX7. BEAUTIFUL LITTLE CAR. JUST BEEN SITTING FOR A LONG TIME. HE’S JUST TOO TALL TO WORK ON IT. IT WAS A LITTLE SPORTS CAR. I’M SIX FOOT TWO, I ALMOST HAD TO LAY DOWN TO GET IN IT. HE FOUND CARS FOR KIDS ONLINE AND CALLED THEM TO DONATE THE CAR. I EXPLAINED THAT I WAS A 45 MINUTE DRIVE AWAY AND I NEEDED A NOTICE THEY WOULD BE THERE AND I WOULD MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THEM. HE HAD TO DRIVE TO HIS AUNT’S HOME THREE TIMES. AND EACH TRIP WAS 50 MILES ONE WAY. BEFORE THEY STAYED TO MEET HIM. I FELT LIKE I WAS JERKED AROUND. THE CHARITIES UNDER FIRE BY THE MINNESOTA ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE. BETWEEN 2012 AND 2014, CARS FOR KIDS RAISED $3 MILLION IN A STATE THROUGH CAR DONATIONS BUT LESS THAN $12,000 WENT TO MINNESOTA KIDS. IT’S IMPORTANT WHEN PEOPLE DONATE TO A CHARITY THEY HAVE INFORMATION IN TERMS OF WHERE THEIR MONEY IS GOING. WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO? 90% OF THE MONEYS DONATED GO TO A SISTER ORGANIZATION, A NEW JERSEY-BASED CHARITY THAT OPERATES JEWISH YOUTH SUMMER CAMPS IN NEW YORK. THAT’S FINE IF PEOPLE WANT TO RAISE MONEY FOR ORTHODOX JEWS BUT THEY NEED TO BE CLEAR AND STATE THAT’S WHAT THE PURPOSE IS. AND THE 2015 BUDGET FOR THOSE ADDS, $17 MILLION ACCORDING TO CHARITY WATCH, EVEN MORE THAN CARS FOR KIDS GAVE. SO WHEN ONE MAKES A DONATION TO CARS FOR KIDS, THEY’RE BASICALLY PAYING FOR THOSE ADS. ACCORDING TO STATE LAW, CARS FOR KIDS DOESN’T HAVE TO REPORT HOW MUCH MONEY WAS RAISED IN TEXAS OR HOW MUCH MONEY STAYED HERE. AND THE COMPANY DID NOT RESPOND TO MY REQUEST ASKING FOR THAT AMOUNT. JOHN WASN’T HAPPY WITH THE CHARITIES SPONSOR NON-RESPONSE AFTER HE COMPLAINED EITHER. THE PROBLEM WAS IS THEY NEVER EVEN TOOK THE TIME TO CALL ME OR TO E-MAIL ME. CARS FOR KIDS ISSUED A STATEMENT IN REGARDS TO THE REPORT BY THE MINNESOTA AG’S OFFICE THAT SAYS IN PART SINCE WE ARE HEADQUARTERED IN THE NORTHEAST, MANY OF OUR PROGRAMS AND RECIPIENTS NATURALLY COME FROM THIS AREA. IN 2009 KARS 4 KIDS PAID SETTLEMENTS IN OREGON AND PENNSYLVANIA AFTER THOSE STATES CHARGED THE CHARITY WITH MISLEADING DONORS. NOW YOU DID GET A CALL TO PASS ALONG A MESSAGE HERE? I DIDN’T HEAR FROM KARS 4 KIDS BUT JOHN GOT AN APOLOGY TODAY AFTER WAITING FOR MONTHS AFTER I E-MAILED THEM ABOUT HIS SITUATION. OKAY, WELL THANKS SO MUCH. IT’S NOT UNREASONABLE FOR PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW WHERE THEIR MONEY IS GOING WHEN THEY GIVE TO CHARITY. THANKS FOR THAT. FOLKS IF YOU NEED CONSUMER

  • CBSDFW – HERITAGE FOR THE BLIND NATIONAL CHARITY has been constantly criticized by former donors. Reports have reached attorneys general offices/Consumer Affairs of various States. But for whatever reason, Kars4Kids is recently being investigated by a variety of officials and authorities. However, if these charities are seriously breaking the laws why nothing drastic is being done against these two charities?

  • On WFAN and WABC radio stations, as well as on New York One (TV) in the New York City area…the most annoying commercials on the planet – Kars4Kids – appear several times per hour! Obviously, a very large proportion of the revenues from selling donated cars, real estate, etc. goes toward commercial fees, plus the salaries for those running the business, as well as employees…. So what's left for "the kids"? Moreover, why is it that WFAN and WABC hosts (e.g., JOE BENIGNO of WFAN) CONTINUE TO PERSONALLY read and promote Kars4Kids?

  • The Charity is a Scam Becuase There Charity Doesn't Donate There Sister Company Oorah Donates To Other Poor Summer Camps To Jewish More life's I Don't Know What's Going to happen if both company's are poor Soon But I Think Its Not Reasonable Because They Did Got The Money Kars4kids They Gave It To There sister then it was not reasonable to keep it I think after the company ends I think there's no Scams Of The Reason If the news reporters To Not Complained About There company's we wished they was a good Charity But The One Which Is Me I Don't Even Know what's going to happen in the future of the company's my cousin laugh becuase a Reason Is a Cringy Scam To People That's why they got all the money from other people we wasn't Keepfull It Doesn't Fit, Or Good Qualified Cars Maybe That's How They Got The Money?
