Free Cars? In a Recession? THIS IS LUDACRIS

It will be raining cars this LudaDay weekend all over Atlanta.
Rapper, actor and now humanitarian, Ludacris and his nonprofit foundation are partnering with Nissan South to give away 20 used vehicles, plus a month's worth of free gas to qualifying Atlanta residents.
Ludacris started The Ludacris Foundation in an effort to share some of his blessings by giving back to the community. His LudaCare initiative is dedicated to supporting young people and families in dire need of help. The "Stars for Cars LudaDay Weekend" will help those families who lack transportation to get back and forth to work or even to a day care.

The event will take place Sept. 6, between 1pm and 3pm at the dealership. To enter the contest, participants must apply by Sept. 3 to The Ludacris Foundation at essay@theludacrisfoundation.org. Contestants should currently not own a vehicle, be at least 18 years old and have a valid Georgia drivers license; they should also include their names, addresses and contact information. Applicants will also be asked to submit a one-page essay on why they think they deserve a car.

An added FYI: All donated vehicles will have passed emissions and Georgia State safety requirements. Each vehicle donated will also carry a standard 30-day powertrain warranty. Winners will be responsible for taxes, registration, tags and insurance. So ...
