The CARS CARES Family Salazar Charity Auction Starts Now …

Kevin T. of CARS CARES (the only official 501 registered charity solely devoted to helping out kids with Mattel Disney Pixar diecast CARS) has graciously offered to host a series of auctions for one final push in helping out the Salazar family.

(you can read the link to our first post above).

But Kevin and Eric are not alone in their generosity. The winner of our Kmart CARS Day 4 CASE decided to donate the ENTIRE CASE TO CARS CARES!

Thanks, Tom R (PenguinTom) – he even sent along a very nice note – generous and gracious.

I have been so excited waiting for the case to arrive from the contest that “Take Five” ran.  What a generous contest that you held.  As I already stated I’m a big fan of TFAD; timely info, humorous writing, excellent photos, concern for more than just “Cars,” and an attitude of grace and humility makes it  the best for me.  Did I mention the squirrel?  Actually there is more but you’ll have to wait for it; only so many compliments at one time.  I follow 24 blogs (of all interests and types) daily or almost and by far Take Five is the class of them all!

I feel so blessed by this event that I would like it to go even further in “the spirit” of Take Five.  I would like to give these super neat cars to a charity that could use them.

Again thank you for having an awesome grace about the site and about both of you as individuals.

Respectfully,  Tom R.  aka “penquintom”

Thanks Tom for the kind words. Your words will look great on the giant plaque at the foot of the 25′ glowing statue of me feeding a squirrel off Highway 64 …

And of course, also thanks to Kevin Nascar Bronco for his generosity and time in launching the Challenge and his donation from his Texas Tea auction.

So, thanks to everyone who has already contributed or will contribute – thanks!

Rick & Family’s last update & his thanks you to all so far is HERE.

Thanks again, Kevin T., Eric L., Tom R. & Kevin “NascarBronco.”

  • NascarFan says:

    Indykit, Met, Eric, Rob, everyone….

    I will dontate 1.00 for each 2010 SDCC item shipped out this year for this Final Salazar Family Fund Push.

    anyone who wants to order anything from SDCC let me know


  • NascarFan says:

    The Texas Tea brought 155.00 and as I said I will dontate 10%.

    I thought with 82 watchers it would bring more, but oh well

    thanks to those that bid

  • Eric says:

    I think we already need to thank Rob for (if nothing else) kicking off some nice bidding on the lots! Rob continues to do great things for other members in need and should certainly be mentioned! (Now don’t let him win everything for gosh darn sakes…) 🙂

    • Rob says:

      No need to thank me I could not imagine going through anything like that alone. Everyone on this site has a big heart when it comes to helping out others so hopefully the auctions wil continue to climb. I will not go down Eric 🙂 Good luck everyone

  • Indykjt says:

    The support shown for the Salazar Family over the last few months has been truly amazing! The outpouring of support for a member who most of us have never meet is inspiring, and I have been honored to be a small part of it.

    Eric is the one who came up with the idea for this auction, as a final push towards a goal of $1000 raised for the family. And, as of right now, with the current bids in place, I am ecstatic to report that that goal will be hit!!!

    With all of the contributions made so far by many individuals, as well as several efforts by Nascarfan (including a portion of his Texas Tea auction!), a wonderful show of support for the family will make a difference.

    I will be forwarding the final amount raised to Rick as soon as all payments are in… and I will let Met know the final amount as well so that he may pass it on to all here.

    I’d also like to put a thanks out to Tom (penguin tom) for his wonderful donation of his K4 Cars case… it arrived earlier this week!

    Thanks again to Met, Tiz, NascarFan, and the rest of the TFAD family here!!!

    Met, you just topped yourself with this one!! “Your words will look great on the giant plaque at the foot of the 25′ glowing statue of me feeding a squirrel off Highway 64.

  • Eric says:

    Just to clarify, Kevin (IndyKit) certinly contributed to these auctions as well. The items are not ALL from me! Let’s make some money for Rick and his kids!
