Cherry Hill, N.J., Dec 21, 2012 /3BL Media/ - Subaru of America kicked off its fifth-annual “Share the Love” event on Nov. 21. During the "Share the Love" event, Subaru is donating $250 to the owners' choice of five charities for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased from Nov. 21, 2012 through Jan. 2, 2013. Over 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 ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®), Make-A-Wish® and 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” added Evans.
