Boat Donations at Boat Angel!

My friend over at The Broken Bow sent me another interesting link to check out – BoatAngel. A quick browse of the site reveals that Angel Ministries is the root of BoatAngel, which utilizes boat donations to create children's animations and anti-drug documentaries. At, one can preview several of the positive media produced by the ministry.

BoatAngel uses boat donations to create a difference in children's lives via the creation of free children's DVDs, e.g., positive children’s animations and anti-drug documentaries. Angel Ministries averages less than 5% of revenues for overhead, promotes itself as an organization that offers to help others e.g., single mothers, orphans, the homeless, teen and adult drug users, and prisoners, via car and boat donations. Anyone can become a Car Angel and select the charity organization that will benefit by donating a vehicle, e.g., car, boat, plane, motorcycle, or RV, or a house. In the process, the donor receives a tax deduction while avoiding hassles associated with private sales.

So, why vehicles? That’s a good question. Well, the vehicle that one donates goes to provide much-needed funding for preschool and grade school-aged children in the poorest nations of the world. Such vehicles are sold off to fund education pursuits, feeding programs, and provide teachers and training materials for some of our misfortunate brothers and sisters, sons and daughters. Some of the countries that have been reputedly touched by this program include Sudan, Columbia, Uganda, Ethiopia, Mexico, Nigeria, India, and Kenya.

And what type of boats or vehicles that one can donate to Angel Ministries? Anything! It does not matter what type, model, or year! And I kid you not! Angel Ministries will accept old boats and vehicles from the 1970s and 1980s or newer ones from the 1990s. It even accepts lawnmowers, tractors, and heavy earth-moving equipment! And for transparency, Angel Ministries gives an instant receipt for each donation!

So, if you are not using that extra boat on your dock or car in your garage, do check out Angel Ministries and help them help others. Donate boats! And if you do not have a boat or vehicle to donate, perhaps you know someone who does! Tell them about Angel Ministries and how they can make a difference in people’s lives. Because after all is said and done, we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what give. Donate my boat to charity! And I kid you not!
