Welcome the Official Start of Summer!

Welcome the Official Start of Summer | Veteran Car DonationsOn June 21st, get ready for the longest day in the year as we welcome the summer solstice here in America and other places in the Northern Hemisphere as well. That’s the time when the Earth arrives at the point in its orbit where the North Pole is at its maximum tilt toward the Sun. On the opposite side of the world, in the Southern Hemisphere, people there will witness the winter solstice, the longest night of the year there.

The summer solstice is also considered the official start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

People in many parts of the world follow different traditions and beliefs related to the summer solstice. They’re mostly related to celebrations involving the Sun. Many people visit Stonehenge in England at this time of the year to welcome the sunrise. In Norway, they celebrate with bonfires to honor their Sun goddess Sunna. The Swedish collect herbs and dance together.

Here in the United States, you can celebrate the summer solstice by engaging in meaningful and memorable family activities related to the event. Veteran Car Donations shares these outstanding suggestions:

  1. Make a sundial.

Challenge your children’s creativity by helping them create sundials. It would also be fun to teach them how the ancient people used to tell time using the device.

  1. Create beautiful flower crowns.

Gather a variety of flowers and have your kids and their friends create wonderful flower crowns to symbolize the start of summer.

  1. Experience nature.

One of the best ways to welcome summer is to step outside and enjoy a fun outdoor activity with your family. Have a picnic or take a hike at a local park. Play games outside, fly a kite, and marvel at the warmth that the Sun brings.

  1. Make summer resolutions.

The New Year is not the only time for making resolutions. List down the things you want to do this summer. After a few years of the pandemic, try to catch up on things that you were unable to do while stuck indoors.

  1. Bury the negatives.

With the sunshine and celebrations afoot, forget about the negative things by writing them down and burying them in the dirt. Let go of the things that are weighing you down so you can make room for the happy adventures that you plan to do this summer.


Extend a Helping Hand to Our Suffering Veterans on Summer Solstice

It’s important to enhance the bonds with your family by engaging in wholesome activities to mark the summer solstice. It’s also important to impart to them the values of kindness, compassion, and generosity. One way to do that is by reaching out to the struggling veterans and their families in your local community.

How? Simply donate any vehicle you no longer need to us here at Veteran Car Donations. We’ll use your donation to uplift the lives of those veterans who are suffering from poverty, homelessness, unemployment, disabilities, and serious illnesses, including mental health issues.

Our team will sell your donated auto through an auction and use the proceeds to support the life improvement programs of our veteran-focused charity partners. These IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations use the funding we give to provide their beneficiaries with free medical care, psychotherapy services, financial aid, family support, housing assistance, educational scholarships, employment opportunities, and many other benefits.

Your participation in our vehicle donation program will enable you to enjoy a fast and free towing service anywhere in the United States. Your donation will also entitle you to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

However, these material rewards pale in comparison to the deep sense of personal satisfaction you’ll experience, knowing that you’ll be giving back to our distinguished veterans — those heroic men and women who put their lives on the line to defend our nation’s freedoms and ensure our security.

We accept nearly all types of vehicles regardless of their age or condition.
