Today officially marks the start of the third annual Mazda Drive For Good event! Assuming you haven’t heard the ads for the contest on NBC or on the radio for the past 2 years, Drive For Good is a nationwide Mazda dealer event about giving back. Even though Drive For Good is a nationwide event, Sport Mazda likes to make it personal and go a few steps further!

Last year, Mazda raised more than $4.9 million dollars and pledged in excess of 66,000 hours of volunteer time to organizations all across the country!

From now to January 4th, we want to make a big splash in giving back to the world and starting 2016 a better world than it was before.

Before we get into how we help, we’d like to explain how you play into this event:

  • ONE TEST DRIVE = 1 HOUR OF COMMUNITY SERVICE:
    The Mazda family will donate one hour of charitable service for every test
    drive of a new Mazda conducted during Drive For Good.
  • BUY OR LEASE A NEW MAZDA, AND MAZDA WILL DONATE $150 TO CHARITY.
    For every new Mazda purchased or leased during the event period, $150 will be donated
    by Mazda to one of five national charities chosen by your customers.

Our five charities this year are:

  • St Jude Children’s Hospital and Research which pioneers research and treatment of children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
  • American Heart Association who seeks to save people from heart disease and stroke.
  • American Red Cross which shelters, feeds, and provides emotional support to victims of disasters.
  • The Mazda Foundation which is dedicated to building a better tomorrow through support of meaningful programs that make a difference.
  • Pet Rescue By Judy which rescues animals that are abandoned or in distress, updates their vaccines, and finds good new homes for them.

As a buyer of a new Mazda during the Drive For Good Event, you will be able to choose which of the 5 great charities your $150 donation will go to. This process is explained during finance and can be done during or after the buying experience.

AND

In line with Sport Mazda Cares and our strong belief in doing more for the community, Sport Mazda is partnering with Pet Rescue by Judy, Chickasaw Trail Animal Hospital, and the Animal Hospital at Vista Lakes to hold several animal adoption events at our dealership to help find new homes for animals in need whether or not you find a home for a new Mazda.

Details on those events as well as more ways Sport Mazda is helping you Drive For Good will be coming soon!
