SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. SHARE THE LOVE
CHERRY HILL, N.J. — Subaru of America will kick off its fifth annual Share the Love event Nov. 21. During Share the Love, Subaru will donate $250 to the owners’ choice of five charities for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased from Nov. 21 through Jan. 2. During the last four years, Subaru has donated nearly $20 million to charitable organizations through the Share the Love sales event.
“Share the Love is a truly unique event that brings together Subaru owners, their philanthropic spirit and five amazing charitable partners,” said Dean Evans, Subaru chief marketing officer.
For the second year in row, Subaru enlisted its Facebook fans to select the final Share the Love charitable partners. The Alzheimer’s Association and the USO earned the most Facebook votes. Those two charities join the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Make-A-Wish and the Meals on Wheels Association of America to round out the 2012 roster. This year’s event is expected to deliver $5 million in donations to the five charitable organizations.
“We know how much Subaru owners care about the community and we can’t think of a better way to close out the year,” Evans said.
Here’s more information about the five Share the Love charitable participants:
Alzheimer’s Association: The leading global voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care and support, and the largest private, nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research. Its mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
ASPCA: The first animal welfare organization in North America works to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals. ASPCA is a national leader in the areas of anticruelty, community outreach and animal health services.
Make-a-Wish: Grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. A wish come true can be a powerful, life-changing event that makes life better for wish kids, strengthens their families and brings communities together.
