Get to know RecycleLife
Since our inception in 2012, Recycle Life has been working with local communities in Northern Virginia to help raise awareness about the importance of organ donation. We have hosted events such as 5K walks and music events at local restaurants and clubs. We want to thank everyone who participated and donated to support our efforts. With the money raised at these events we were able to help families with medical expenses as well as sleeping arrangements near the hospitals where their loved ones were during the transplant process. Perhaps most importantly, we have steadily raised awareness and registered new donors as “Heroes” to those in need.
We can now accept vehicle donations!
RecycleLife has partnered up with a great organization by the name of “CARS”.. As of today, you or anyone you know can donate / “Recycle” your used vehicle for a maximum tax deduction. Just 3 easy steps;
1) Call 855-500-RIDE (7433), or click the button and fill out the form,
2) CARS comes and tows the vehicle free of charge

RecycleLife has agreed to help a local couple David & Colleen from Ashburn VA, who have been met with several challenges in the past few months. The first one being that Colleen is in serious kidney failure and is currently stage five kidney failure status. This means she will need to undergo long and very painful kidney dialysis treatments until a kidney (living) donor is found. The good news is that she does not have to wait until a match is found seeing how her boyfriend David has been identified as a perfect match! However, during his evaluation to become a living donor, Dave was told he may need to undergo surgery to treat Ulcerative Colitis (UC), that had not been identified until his evaluation. This is ofcourse a speed bump that is standing in the way of a real time kidney donation to help Colleen live a long and healthy life. Our goal is to help raise funds for Dave to undergo his treatment first in order for him to be able to donate his kidney to the love of his life. Please consider helping and attending our upcoming “Crawl for a Cause” on July 28th in support of Dave and Colleen.
