Toyota 100 Cars for Good begins taking your votes today
The second year of Toyota's program, 100 Cars for Good began today as 500 charities will try to win one of 100 cars the auto manufacturer is giving away. Voting is entirely up to the public and being done on Facebook.
So if you have a Facebook account and want to participate, your vote matters. You can visit 100 Cars for Good, choose from one of five charities listed daily for the next one hundred days, and help Toyota give away one hundred cars to needy organizations around the country.
At the end of each day, the organization with the most votes of the five charities listed will win their choice of a Camry Hybrid sedan, Highlander SUV, Prius v hybrid hatchback, Sienna minivan, Sienna Mobility minivan, or Tundra pickup truck.
The 500 finalists in Toyota's charity lineup this year come from all fifty states and Washington, D.C. and their profiles can be viewed on 100carsforgood.com.
“At Toyota, we appreciate what a big difference a new car or truck can make for organizations working to improve lives and strengthen communities across America,” said Jim Lentz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Toyota Motor Sales. “Over the past 20 years, Toyota has contributed more than half a billion dollars to nonprofits throughout the U.S. 100 Cars for Good allows us to build on that commitment in new ways, putting the public in the ‘driver’s seat’ as we work to help community organizations make an even bigger impact. We wish all of this year’s finalists the best of luck.”
Those non-profits that do not win a car will win $1,000 in cash and all finalists have received digital cameras, training materials, and online advertising credits to help them get the word out about their charity on the Internet.
