Kars4Kids has a jingle you can’t get out of your mind, as one lucky lottery winner can attest. Some people complain about the jingle, but the lottery winner in question has no complaints. When it came time to buy a ticket, his wife knew exactly what number he should play, and as you might have guessed, it’s a part of the phone number immediately familiar to anyone who has ever heard our jingle (also known as “everyone”).
We have no doubt that, in fact, at this very moment, you’re hearing our phone number in your own head. It’s a number that turned out to be the winning number for the lucky fellow who decided to take his wife’s advice.
The Winning Number
David Georgis, our dedicated customer service representative, has the story:
A donor calls in and says he came into some money and would like to donate his 2022 Hyundai Elantra. He said he won the lotto and wanted to give back to the kids.
I was processing the donation and I asked him how he heard about Kars4Kids. He said, “You know what, that’s what this is all about. That jingle! I’ve been hearing it for 20 years. My wife said that we have to play the numbers ‘877’ in honor of Kars4Kids on the next lottery drawing. And there you go. Boom!
“We played the numbers 877 and we won the lotto. Thanks jingle. Thanks Kars4Kids!”
Lightning Doesn’t Strike Twice
Now, it’s not that we’re suggesting you should try use the Kars4Kids magic number when you buy your next lottery ticket—lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice. But we definitely think that we’ve got the winning formula with our jingle and our car donation program. Our phone number is unforgettable, because we think the future of our children should be unforgettable, too!
