Mazda has partnered with four national charities to help provide for those in need this holiday season. These include, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, American Red Cross, American Heart Association and Mazda Foundation for its charitable giving campaign. For every new Mazda sold during the Mazda Drive for Good campaign, Mazda will donate $100 to one of those four national charities as selected by the new Mazda owner. Also for every Mazda vehicle that is test driven the Mazda Drive For Good campaign will donate one hour of charitable service from its employees and dealers across the nation which will begin in the 2014 calendar year.
The campaign will run through January 2, 2014. In addition to the four national charities The Mazda Dealer Marketing Groups around the nation also have the opportunity to select a fifth local charity that enables the new Mazda owners to select a charity option closer to home!
