Cars and #blackouttuesday

Recommended Posts

Since we're all car enthusiasts here, I thought you might want to hear a relevant data point on this national #blackouttuesday. Since we started our OnRamp charity 2 ½ years ago, we've given away reliable vehicles to 37 families in Brazos County brought to us by our two school districts, large charitable orgs like H4H and FoodBank, and various religious orgs. Of those 37 families, 20 have been African American. That's 54% in a county of just 11% African American. Conclusion: transportation insecurity, which has a bigger impact on generational poverty than even education, disproportionately affects the black community by a dramatic amount.

All that to say, if you have the ability, please look for ways to use this hobby to help families in need of reliable transportation, especially from minority communities. Note, this is not a plug for our charity - we're only in the Brazos Valley. But there's a LOT of people in desperate need of help throughout Texas. If you can, find a way to be part of the solution. And if you need advice, all we've learned and developed through OnRamp is yours for free. Our prayer is to help people launch OnRamps throughout the United States.

So the organization is called OnRamps? Do they accept monetary donations and cars?
