Car Contributions

— NPR's Steve Inskeep reports on a twist to making a charitable contribution. More and more charities are accepting people's old cars, selling them at auction and using the money to support their work. There are a few warnings, but the donation is tax-deductible...and the charity will usually have your old car towed away for free.
