Want to get rid of your gas guzzler and start living car-free in DC? Now's the time to do it!
Zipcar is partnering with the Washington Area Bicycling Association (WABA) to encourage you to take that plunge. If you donate your car to WABA before December 15, you'll not only receive a tax deduction equal to the auction sales price of your vehicle, but you'll receive a FREE lifetime Zipcar membership plus $100 in driving credit. And if you donate before this Thursday, November 29, you'll actually get $500 in driving credit! Proceeds will benefit WABA, which promotes clean transportation by making cycling safer for cyclists and motorists in the DC area. For more information or arrange a donation, simply call 888-ZIP-GIVE.
If you don't have a car to donate but want to help us celebrate our car donation drive, please join us for a FREE screening of National Geographic's feature film Arctic Tale at Landmark's E Street Cinema this Thursday, November 29. From the same people who brought you March of the Penguins, Arctic Tale is a real-life adventure in the frozen Arctic wilderness, following Nanu, the polar bear cub, and Seela, the walrus pup, through harrowing struggles for survival. Once a perpetual wonderland of snow and ice, the filmmakers capture how the Arctic animals are losing their beautiful icebound world.
This is the last time Arctic Tale will be on the big screen in this area before the DVD is released on December 4, so now's the time to see it. You can get your photo taken on the green carpet, and we'll have door prizes from Zipcar and National Geographic on hand. To RSVP for this event, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please note that admission is limited to theater capacity.) Doors open at 6:30 pm, and we'll start with a short ceremony honoring those who have donated their cars at 7 pm.
