Toyota Announces 100 Cars for Good Finalists

Launched at the beginning of March, the 100 Cars for Good campaign ended this week, as the Japanese automaker announced the names of the 500 nonprofits that have been selected to have a shot at getting one of the 100 free cars.

The 500 names have been selected after registration by a panel comprised of independent judges. Now that the finalists are known, it is up to the public to decide, through a vote which will be cast on the car maker's Facebook page starting May 9, who will be the 100 organizations that will receive, in 100 consecutive days (a vehicle will be awarded daily through August 16, voters may place one vote per day, each day, over the course of the program), the models offered by Toyota.

The list of finalists can be viewed at the following link. The list includes organizations that fight for pretty much all the causes known to man, from animal welfare, arts, education, environment to health, safety and human services.

The models that will be given away by Toyota will be offered from throughout the manufacturer's range. They include Prius, Tacoma, Tundra, Highlander Hybrid, Sienna, or Sienna Mobility, brand new and complete with a six-year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.

“Congratulations to the non-profits selected as 100 Cars for Good finalists, and to all those who applied for consideration,” said Jim Lentz, president of Toyota Motor Sales. “We look forward to seeing the public voting and the end result – these vehicles being used to help local communities across the country in the weeks, months and years to come.”
