UPDATE: Starting May 14 through August 21, it’s the voters’ turn to do their own good deed by voting for their favorite organizations and causes. All voters have to do is log in to their Facebook profile and use the 100 Cars for Good app (or click here) to vote on one of that day’s five nonprofit organizations.
Each afternoon, the previous day’s winner is announced and a fresh batch of five finalist organizations will be ready to compete for votes. Vote once a day because each vote counts and each day brings another new car to another deserving organization.
Vote now for your favorite nonprofit of the day to win a car and then tell your friends to do the same!
In March, Toyota launched their 100 Cars for Good campaign, a national philanthropy program in which the automaker is giving away 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 days. Two of the six models Toyota is giving away are hybrids!
- The Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown, NJ, which can now pick up donations of food that used to be turned away due to a lack of transportation, allowing it to provide meals and food to even more people in need;
- Camp Casey, a program near Detroit that provides horseback riding visits for kids with cancer that is now able to expand its reach to families in other parts of the state; and
- Washington, DC’s Aleethia Foundation, whose new minivan enables it to transport wounded veterans recovering at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to much needed social nights away from the hospital.
As part of the 100 Cars for Good program, Toyota will provide every finalist with a digital video camera, training toolkit and free online advertising credits to help them create or expand their presence in social media and other digital platforms. The nonprofit finalists can use these resources for their 100 Cars campaign and can continue to build on them after the program.
100 Cars for Good applications will be open for two weeks (until Monday, March 26 at 11:59 am PST]), or until 5,000 applications are received. From this group, 500 finalists will be selected and certified by an independent panel of experts. Finalists will be notified in April.
