15 Animal Care Non Profits Win Toyota Cars


100 Cars for Good

Toyota announced the first 25 winners of the 100 Cars for Good program that will award 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over 100 consecutive days. This first group of fortunate beneficiaries of the national philanthropy Toyota is sponsoring includes a range of local causes advocating for kids, communities affected by natural disasters, homelessness and other social challenges as well as assorted charitable groups concerned with the well-being of domesticated pets and wild animals.

I'm not only a believer of teaching kids to give back to local community, I am also an animal lover who volunteers at animal shelters whenever I have the opportunity. So it really warms my heart to know that more than half of the initial winning nonprofits in Toyota's giveaway are involved with a menagerie of 15 very worthy animal causes with hard working staff and devoted volunteers.

About 100 Cars for Good

One new winner is selected each day of the campaign through public voting on Facebook at www.100carsforgood.com. Continuing daily through August 21, five more nonprofit organizations will be profiled with the organization earning the most votes at the end of each day winning a new Toyota vehicle. The four runners-up of the day each receive a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota.
