By Jason Davis | September 21, 2011
The Make-A-Wish Foundation has won Subaru’s Share the Love Facebook contest to determine which new charity the automaker will add to its yearly event. In the last three years, Subaru of America has donated more than $15 million dollars to charity, and hopes to add another $5 million this year. Recently, Subaru asked its Facebook fans to vote for their favorite charity amongst a list of notable groups including Teach for America, The American Red Cross, The Children’s Miracle Network, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. For every vehicle purchased or leased from November 19, 2011 through January 3, 2012, Subaru will donate $250 to one of following charities: American Forests, the ASPCA, Meals on Wheels Association of America, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the Special Olympics. "At Subaru, we support causes that our owners are also passionate about. This year we took the Share The Love event a step further and asked our Facebook fans to decide which organization they'd like to add to the designated charities for this year's event. We're absolutely delighted to welcome the Make-A-Wish Foundation as the People's Choice to join our existing charities," said Brian Johnson, national advertising manager, Subaru of America, Inc.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. With the help of donors and nearly 25,000 volunteers, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted more than 200,000 wishes in the United States.
