Where do the funds raised from sales go?
All of the funds from every purchase go straight into the organisation, helping us to continue doing what we do, including giving hope, running campaigns, connecting people to the help they deserve and investing directly into mental health research and treatment. All of Cars For Hope’s members and contributors are volunteers.
