Dealerships celebrate Back to School Month to benefit local schools

DANVERS, Mass.--September 27, 2010-- The International Cars, Ltd. (ICL) family of dealerships today announced it has donated $10,000 to online giving forum Digital Wish in honor of “National Back to School” month. Throughout August, each of ICL’s five dealerships donated a portion for each vehicle sold to local schools through online giving forum Digital Wish, a national platform that empowers educators and donors to campaign cooperatively to put technology into the hands of students across America. ICL’s “Back to School” month donation will benefit local schools, and assist Digital Wish in their mission to solve technology shortfalls in U.S. classrooms.

“We’re proud to support Digital Wish in their efforts to put much needed technology in our local classrooms,” said Jack Donachie, president and CEO of International Cars, Ltd. “In our fast paced world with ever evolving technology, educators often find themselves in desperate need of new technology resources. The ICL family of dealerships is honored to help meet this need and better prepare our students for the future.”

In addition to donating $10,000, ICL also offered employee pricing to all educators throughout the month of August.

Digital Wish allows teachers to create "wish lists" of technology products needed for their classroom, and describe how each item will be utilized at www.digitalwish.org.  Like a gift registry, visiting donors can purchase wish list items for classrooms through Digital Wish, or donate money to a specific classroom for future technology purchases. 100 percent of every donation to Digital Wish funds classroom technology, and Digital Wish matches every dollar with an additional two to ten percent in funding.

"Their generosity is going to positively touch hundreds of students' lives,” said Heather Chirtea, Executive Director of Digital Wish. “Digital Wish is very thankful for generous organizations like International Cars, Ltd. that believe in proactively investing in their local communities.”

Digital Wish invites the collaborative involvement of local communities, caring donors, and innovative teachers to make a personal investment in the community where they live and work. Teachers are encouraged to use the platform to network with other educators across the country, sharing lesson plans, experiences, and advice on teaching in the 21st century.
