Twin: Post 9

July 19, 2012

At the beginning of 2012, I was invited to join TWIN: Toyota Women’s Influencer Network.  It is such an honor and privilege to have joined a community supporting a brand that I so passionately believe in.  Here is a look at the first six posts that I wrote in regards to my relationship with Toyota.  The next six posts will detail my trip to Los Angeles, California where I met with executives and toured headquarter facilities.  One of the things that I learned about during my time there was the extraordinary “100 Cars For Good” program that Toyota is currently running.



Toyota is strongly committed to giving back to its community and this new program reflects that.  For almost two decades, the car company has contributed over $500 million to charities in the United States.  Now they want to add to that amount, but this time by awarding 100 vehicles over the course of 100 days to 100 non-profit organizations that we can help choose!  Take a look at this video for more information and to be inspired:


The following Toyota vehicles will be awarded:

  • Prius
  • Tacoma
  • Tundra
  • Highlander Hybrid
  • Sienna
  • Sienna Mobility


Jim Lentz, President of Toyota Motor Sales, said the following about the program:

Over the past two decades, Toyota has contributed more than half a billion dollars to philanthropic programs in the United States, and now 100 Cars for Good will put the public in the driver’s seat for one of our philanthropic efforts. We wanted to engage the community and the supporters of thousands of worthy organizations in this process— allowing their voices to be heard as we award 100 vehicles based on their votes.


**Follow 100 Cars For Good on Facebook and with hashtag #100cars on Twitter.**
