Victoria, British Columbia (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
AutoTempest founder Nathan Stretch selects CARE International, a relief and development NGO working to combat poverty in developing countries, as the recipient of a $10,000 charitable donation. AutoTempest, an online used car search engine bringing up listings from all major used car classifieds, has been carefully designed to connect individuals with quality used cars. The same effort and commitment to quality drove the recipient selection process, with CARE being ultimately chosen for its emphasis on long-term solutions and its success in creating positive, sustainable change in communities around the world.
During the decision making process, the AutoTempest founder was impressed with the high quality of CARE’s charitable endeavours and its focus on building local skills, with 97% of staff being nationals of the countries in which the programs are run. The charity works with the local communities to identify the most marginalized beneficiaries; often women and girls. CARE helps individuals help themselves – through their programs, people learn skills and receive knowledge so that they themselves can be agents of lasting change in their communities.
“It was very important to me to choose a charity that not only was in line with my values, but that brought a high level of quality and accountability to its processes and undertakings,” shares AutoTempest founder and President Nathan Stretch. “I was impressed by CARE’s ability to address all of my very specific questions. They stood out as a top-notch organization that doesn’t just address the symptoms of poverty; they are committed to tackling the underlying causes. I appreciate their comprehensive approach and their focus on empowering individuals to become self-sufficient and bring long-term change to their communities.”
