Drive your dream with Bowater Toyota

25 ways to say thanks. Toyota support local charities with new Corolla's

Do you know a charity or two doing some good in your local community?

Could they really use a new Corolla?

corolla give away

To say thank you to New Zealanders for making Toyota the country's best-selling car company for the past 25 years, they are giving 25 deserving Kiwi charities a new 2013 Toyota Corolla each - to use for three years!

Communities throughout New Zealand have embraced Toyota and the charities in those communities are the ones doing valiant work, often with minimal resources. Toyota, and Bowater Toyota as well, want to lend them a helping hand and say thanks to all of New Zealand. That is why we are using our website to tell as many local charities as we can about this great opportunity. And hopefully encouraging as many of you as possible to get in and vote. It is free and easy, and will only take a moment, but could make the world of difference!

You can support your favourite charity by voting for them on Toyota's Facebook (click here) and by encouraging your New Zealand based friends and family to do the same. Once you cast your vote you have the opportunity to change it up until voting closes on 24 March 2013.


Are you a local charity, or know someone involved in one?

If you represent a Kiwi charity, click the ‘register’ tab on the link here, or on the image below, to find out how to put your organisation in the running for one of the 25 Corollas.

Registration as a charity is easy.
Here is a quick step by step and a link to the Toyota Facebook page where you can get it all done.

25 ways register

There are many ways in which you can get your charity front of mind, and motivate your own network into voting for you. What is important is that you let your network know, as soon and as often as possible, without nagging of course! Nothing is more annoying than feeling pestered!
The key is to make you posts engaging and hopefully sharable - the more you can get your friends or Likers on Facebook sharing your posts, the better you will do. Make it emotional!

Vote now and get your friends sharing.

If you think that this initiative by Toyota  is fantastic, let your friends know. The lesson we have learnt over the last year regarding these facebook promotions is that you have to be in early and often. If you think you would like to get behind a local charity then do so at the earliest convenience and tell your friends. 

Browse the charities on the Facebook link and cast your vote.
Tag them in the comments on this post via our Facebook page to make sure they hear about the 25 cars that Toyota are giving away to Kiwi charities. The more locals that know about this the better we say!

Spread the word, get your favourite charities registered and get you, and your NZ based networks voting!
