Making an investment to be part of a Special Business Group in advertising and marketing sometimes brings other results more than just business. I would like to thank all of the BDG “San Diego Auto Repair Care” members for their participation and support in the 2015 “Car For A Cause” FREE vehicle giveaway.
Kara Shaw Car For A Cause Nominee
We are all truly blessed with family & friends. As you read the information below about Kara Shaw and her children you will understand my phrase. A panel of four people, two men and two women reviewed all 100 “Car For A Cause” nomination forms. After narrowing it down to four nominees it was decided that Kara Shaw and her children will receive the 2005 Town & Country Van.
I personally spoke to all six women that nominated Kara Shaw who did not know that others had nominated her.
When I called Kara she was a little in shock and excited at the same time. The San Diego Auto Repair Care group presented the van to Kara and her children On Sunday December 13 on KUSI TV. The San Diego Auto Repair group also supplied a Christmas Tree, Ornaments and stockings stuffed with presents for each of the 5 children including $2000 in cash to help Kara & family in other needs. Words cannot express how happy, blessed and grateful Kara and the children are. It was a very unforgettable and emotional day for all.
Enjoy some of the pictures and link to YouTube “Car for a Cause”.
Please read the email below from Carolyn one of the women that submitted Kara nomination form and visit the support website for Kara Shaw and children.

Hi John –
I’m still feeling emotional and praising God for this blessing for Kara. Again HUGE Thank You’ s to you and everyone who had a part in your Car for a Cause program and blessing Kara with this van. Wow! Just Wow!! — I really wish I could be there, but it’s not likely at this point. For sure, though, I’ll be there in spirit!
As friends we try to do what we can, but so much more help is needed. The blessing of the van is IMMENSE!!! As well as it provides energy to not only Kara and the kids to “keep on keeping’ on” but increasing efforts by friends to forge ahead in support as well. As I shared with you, in the coming year I am making it my mission to find a way to fund a lightweight wheelchair for Jax (10). He faces a long road ahead with medical treatments, (especially given his most recent diagnosis on top of everything else… **sigh**) on the days that he feels up to getting out and about he should have the means.
Here’s the link below for the GoFundMe that has been set up for the family: Click here to support Support for Medical Expenses by Kara Shaw

This fundraiser is for the ongoing medical and related expenses for two medically complex siblings. From travel to out of the area specialists, transportation, hotel…

Kara does her best to manage it all, but it is truly taking its toll on her. It’s not enough that one, or even two, of her children have multiple rare diagnosis, but she as well is battling parallel health issues. Your prayers are greatly appreciated. I look forward to meeting you when I get to San Diego (it’s one place that I’ve wanted to visit but never have… soon… yes, we’ll have to focus on that for the coming year. Visiting Kara and the kids is long overdue!)
((Hugs)) and Prayers to you and yours!
Make it a great day!

It’s an idea that has long appealed to the San Diego Auto Repair Care Group in San Diego, Calif. A community service project where fellow NAPA AutoCare Business Development Group members could use their talents and skills to help out area residents and raise awareness about the importance of proper vehicle maintenance. On October 25, 2015 eighteen members of San Diego Auto Repair host their first-ever Car Care Fair at Qualcomm Stadium, home of the San Diego Chargers.
The October 25 Car Care Fair generated plenty of publicity and positive press in San Diego. Popular radio stations like KSON & KGB hosted live remote broadcasts from the event while one of the city’s highly-rated morning TV shows KUSI promoted Free Car Care Fair in their “Things to Do This Weekend” programming. Local auto clubs participated in a free car show during the event featuring hot rods, trucks, low riders, classic, import and specialty vehicles at the event.
In addition to the live remote radio broadcasts and car show, the Car Care Fair included family entertainment including a local food truck, balloon & face painting modeling booth, also a video games fun truck. NHRA NAPA race car driver Ron Capps arrived to sign autographs next to the NAPA racing Tools & Equipment big rig. The group also solicited the participation of the San Diego Blood Bank which accepted donations during the event.
The centerpiece of the Car Care Fair offered free vehicle inspections that can uncover opportunities to improve gas mileage, safety and performance — important topics in an area where the average resident spends 246 hours a year in traffic. When local area residents pulled into Qualcomm Stadium on October 25, they were greeted by the sight of 20 tents where the vehicle inspections will took place. The visual inspections were conducted with NAPA AutoCare Digital Vehicle Inspection, or DVI.
DVI helped save precious time about 10 minutes per vehicle in a standard inspection.) The AutoCare Digital Vehicle Inspection provided event attendees with first-rate printed inspection reports, underscoring the professionalism of San Diego Auto Repair shops.
The group gave away free oil and filter change certificates and free wiper blades certificates to anyone that registered during the event.
The Car Care Fair was the biggest thing on the group’s radar screen for 2015 but it’s not the only business-building activity they’re involved in. San Diego Auto Repair promotes special discounts for the many members of the military in the San Diego area, as well as discounts for fleets and drivers for the Uber car sharing service. San Diego Auto Repair Care also participated in AutoCare Sales Driver consumer savings offers throughout the year of 2015.
