Toyota Donating 100 Cars to 100 Nonprofits in 100 Days – Public to Choose the Winners on Facebook
Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital has been selected as one of 500 nonprofit finalists in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program, a major philanthropic initiative in which the automaker is giving 100 vehicles to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 days. Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital was selected as a finalist from more than 4,000 applications nationwide. If selected as a winner, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital will use the minivan as a replacement for the well-traveled vehicle currently being used to transport speakers with disabilities who present at Cruisin’ Not Boozin’® events.
Cruisin’ Not Boozin’ is Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital’s outreach program to reduce impaired and distracted driving among teenagers and young adults. The program educates individuals about the potential consequences associated with poor choices involving alcohol, drugs and cell phone use while driving. The audience comes face-to-face with our speakers who are permanently disabled because of car accidents involving impaired or distracted driving.
Each day, beginning May 14, 2012, 100 Cars for Good will profile five finalists at www.100carsforgood.com. Individual members of the public will be able to vote for the nonprofit they think can do the most good with a new vehicle. The nonprofit with the most votes at the end of each day will win one of six Toyota models. Runners-up will each receive a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota.
“Everyone at Bryn Mawr Rehab is thrilled to have been selected as a finalist for the 2012 100 Cars for Good program,” said Donna Phillips, BMRH president. “We’re grateful for this incredible opportunity to raise awareness about our life-changing program and hopefully win a car to help us increase our impact in the region. We hope everyone will help us spread the word and vote for us on May 14. A new vehicle is a necessary component of our powerful Cruisin’ Not Boozin' community program.”
100 Cars for Good is the first initiative to directly engage the public to determine how Toyota’s philanthropic donations are awarded.
