Small business owners – this is a great chance for you to do good. You can support your local and or favourite charity by voting for the non-profit organisation to win one of 100 vehicles in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good campaign.
Over the period of 100 days – starting from May 09, 2011 and will end on August 16, 2011 – Toyota will feature 5 non-profit profiles every day on Toyota’s Facebook page and you can vote once per day for your favourite charity that you think deserves a Toyota.
You can learn more about the non-profit organisations registered into the contest to choose one of 500 participants you will endorse from the Cars for Good page on Facebook (click on View Contestants to browse the registered organisations.)
Rules, rules, rules
Of course, there are some official rules for your vote’s eligibility – you can check them out at http://www.carsforgood.com/officialrules.html.
To vote, you must be a legal US resident, over 13 years old, and own a Facebook account – so yes, you will obviously need to log into your Facebook account. Votes must be made during the Daily Voting Period that will begin at 6 AM Eastern Time and end at 12 PM Eastern Time – every day.
Daily winners will be announced on Toyota’s Facebook page within 72 hours.
My top pick: Wish Upon A Hero Foundation
Unfortunately, I am not a US resident – so I can’t vote. However, I am interested in the participating organisations and found the one that interest me: Wish Upon A Hero Foundation.
The Wish Upon A Hero Foundation (WUAHF) is a registered non-profit organisation seeks to grant the wishes of those in need. A simple but interesting premise – not to mention a worthy cause.
The WUAHF has granted more than 578 wishes in 3 years, and what fascinate me is due to the fact that it is a true volunteer organisation – no donations are used for staff’s salaries. Some highlights of the wishes include a $10,000 grant for chemo drugs, food and clothes supplies to disaster victims, financial aid for military families, and many more.
Small business owners are heroes; you offer job opportunities, you enhance your community and you are set to make a difference with your business as leverage. You might want to extend your “hero status” by supporting the WUAHF (or – of course – any other charities which programs that interest and fascinate you.)
