Every day for 100 days (May-August), Toyota is giving a car to one charitable or nonprofit organization. Culled from thousands of applications, every day five orgs have the chance to win. What's cooler still, is that each day, the four orgs who don't win a car will be given $1,000. Everybody wins.
I love that Toyota is giving away one hundred cars to worthy organizations. I love that I am learning so much about the Toyota company itself, and what it stands for. I love how easy it is to vote. I actually set a stopwatch today and it took me less than 45 seconds from start to finish on the 100 Cars for Good facebook app.
Here's one more great way to learn about the 500 organizations in the running for new cars: on the top of the app is a green BROWSE ORGS button. You can search by focus (veterans, animals, education, environment, and lots more), or by state. Then, when you find an organization you want to vote for, you can have a reminder sent to your email on the day that org comes up for voting. So. So. Easy.
If you're an Arkie, I've made it even easier for you. Below are the dates when local organizations will be up for votes.
July 3: Simone's Home, Inc, (click for link to their facebook page) in Little Rock aims "to provide girls in foster ccare ages 12-18 with the necessary tools to become self-sufficient women."
July 26: Delta Transitional Home in Marianna aims "to provide a structured home to female children and adolescents in the custody of the State of Arkansas."
August 11: Winslow Community Meals in Winslow aims "to serve great meals... at a very low cost and try to help..."
You have no reason not to vote. Seriously. Toyota won't send you sp@mmy emails, they don't ask for any of your info, you're already on facebook anyway, you are a super person who loves helping other super people. See? No reason not to vote.
Check it out, and if you have any favorite organizations, come back here and let me know!
