Win A Tesla Model 3 & Help People In Need

You could win a Tesla Model 3 by helping a nonprofit that helps people in need. The nonprofit is Project Angel Food and it provides meals and counseling for people living with serious illnesses such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other deadly diseases. Project Angel Food was a response to the AIDS crisis, but now it helps people suffering from all types of life-ending diseases.

Their belief is that food is medicine — and that’s actually one of my own personal ones as well. We become what we eat — no, you won’t turn into a literal watermelon if you eat the seeds, but you will absorb its nutrients and your body will process it to use for its cellular needs. When you eat what your body needs, it functions properly. Another phrase that supports this is “you eat to live, not live to eat.”

This belief helps Project Angel Food to meet the nutritional care required by its clients’ medical conditions. Many of the organization’s clients are homebound and often live alone. They are unable to shop or cook for themselves and rely on Project Angel Food as a vital lifeline. Their drivers, while delivering food, also bring a message that someone cares for them. Project Angel Food has delivered almost 12 million meals in the 30 years since it was founded.

Enter To Win A Tesla Model 3

Simply donate $10 to Project Angel Food and you’re entered! Every donation of $10 or more is an entry, and every time you enter to win, you help someone who is alone and dealing with one of the worst things that they could possibly deal with receive a little bit of love and hope.

The prize is a Tesla Model 3 in your choice of white, black, silver, or blue. It’s a Long Range All-Wheel Drive with 18″ aero wheels and will have an all-black premium interior. It also comes with Autopilot and an additional $5,000 cash.

It will be delivered to your door and all sales taxes and delivery fees will be covered. However, if you live within 160 miles of a Tesla location you will have to go there and pick it up.

My 2.5 Cents

We all sometimes have our battles to face. We make choices and these choices result in consequences. Sometimes these choices are made for us — meaning that things happen to us. When it comes to AIDS, many people automatically assume that the person who is infected has done something they think the person shouldn’t have done to get it. The truth is, we have all done things we shouldn’t have and no one should judge others for a disease they have.

I have heard many conversations over my life, have seen the look of condensation hiding behind fake smiles. People who are dying don’t deserve cruel judgment. You don’t know what someone has gone through, and the fact that we have a society that shuns our older generations by locking them up in nursing homes until they waste away — or worse, throw them on the streets where they have to fend for themselves — is wrong.

People often joke about diabetes — don’t eat that candy or you will get it. It’s really nothing to joke about and diabetes is proof enough that the right food actually is medicine. I know several people who have diabetes and it runs in my own family — but that doesn’t mean that we “deserve what we get for doing XYZ,” which is the type of toxic mentality I’ve seen people have towards others all throughout my life.

Nonprofits such as Project Angel Food are vital not just for the people they serve, but for us to remember our own humanity. They are reminders that we need to be humane toward one another.
