Saab are running a campaign from now until January 3, 2011, where by they’ll donate $50 to the Make-a-Wish foundation for every Saab test drive undertaken during that period.
Saab have committed to a minimum donation of $50,000, topping out at $250,000. Personally speaking, I’d like to see them spend as close to that $250K as possible.
So if you’re considering a test drive anyway, get to it before January 3 and you’ll not only get drive one of the new Saab 9-5s or existing Saab 9-3s, but you’ll also help out some kids in less fortunate situations.
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation’s mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 after a little boy named Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 193,000 children around the world.
If you’ve ever known a sick child, then you’ve known the transformational power of a wish.
I am in no way suggesting that you spend Saab’s money for the sake of it (they don’t have enough of it), but this is a worthy cause and a win-win for those already considering going for a test drive in the near future.
If you’re in the market, you should get in touch with your dealer and set up a date. If you know someone else who might be in the market, you can click here and use the ‘share’ features below this post to send it on to them, too.
Let’s see if we can spend $250K of Saab’s money and help out two worthy causes at the same time – Saab and Make-A-Wish!
