Kars4Kids is itself a scam. They lie about where their money goes. Kars4Kids benefits Joy For Our Youth, which in turn gives all its money to Oorah an organization which helps to send Jewish children to Yeshivas. See this report:
Also watch out for reports on the cucumber.com, also owned by the same people. No surprise they are involved in the worldwidetravelcenter.com scam.

Also, check out this $65, 000 settlement Kars4Kids was required to pay for their false claims.
This is from the above link:
"According to the settlement agreement, these groups solicited for contributions in Pennsylvania through a vehicle donation program in order to benefit disadvantaged children, but failed to properly inform donors that their contributions would only benefit services for children of certain religious affiliations. Additionally, JOY allegedly solicited for charitable contributions without being properly registered with the Pennsylvania Department of State and failed to include state-required disclosures in radio, print and Internet solicitations."
And much more here including alleged child abuse by Oorah administrators:
