Everyone has seen an advert on a lamppost advertising a scrap car scam, but did you know that there is an ethical and environmental way to get rid of your unwanted car, whilst raising money for charity? CamKids has just partnered with Giveacar to launch an exciting new fundraising initiative that will pick up any vehicle, from anywhere in the UK for free.

If you have an unwanted car, Giveacar arranges for the free pick-up and disposal or auction of your vehicle, and a donation generated from the sale or scrap of the car is then directed to CamKids. Every car that is disposed of through the scheme is recycled to high environmental standards and could raise an average of £80.

Do you have a vehicle, in any condition, taking up space in your garage or drive? If so, why not use it to raise money for CamKids and support us to provide services for children in Cambodia? This month alone, generous donations of unwanted cars from the public will raise over £30,000 for UK charities. By raising awareness of this free and easy car donation service with friends and family, you can help us reach our fundraising goals this year.

To donate your scrap car to CamKids, simply call Giveacar on 020 0011 1664 and quote ‘The Cambodian Children’s Charity’ as your chosen charity. If you have any further questions about CamKids’ Giveacar appeal, please call the Giveacar team or see their website at:

CamKids Winter 2010 Newsletter

In our latest Newsletter we introduce our 2 new Cambodian fieldworkers, Nareth and Vannak, who will be heavily involved in new community development projects by CamKids. Building upon the medical, education and community support programmes which we have already put into place, this new direction for CamKids goes directly to the heart of the problems we see everyday in Cambodia, by helping whole communities to work together to solve their problems. A relatively small injection of funds into this type of project can yield enormous benefits and improve the life chances of the very poorest in Cambodian society.

The Newsletter also includes a roundup of some of our most recent projects and programmes.

To access the Newsletter, please click Here or Contact Us and we will send you a copy by e-mail. If you sign up to our Newsletter Here, you will receive your copy by e-mail every 6 months (your details will not be used for commercial or any other purpose).

Thank you once again to all of our donors and supporters, without whom none of this would have been possible.

With Best Wishes for the Holiday Season
The CamKids Trustees
