We need the help of each and every one of you that can spare a few minutes (or a few dollars)!
Bergstrom Automotive - our parent company - is heavily supportive of great charity events and Make-A-Wish is one of our most focused efforts each year.
The expectation from each store in Bergstrom's group is to raise one wish for Make-A-Wish -$5000..but they've left smart out of the equation, thinking that a small store could never reach such a goal.
...Well, like many of you, nothing drives me more than when someone says we can't.
I am asking all of your help in showing them what smart is made of. In the month of October, for every unique test drive of a smart car, $5.00 will be donated to Make-A-Wish on your behalf. That's 1000 test drives, so bringing in your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, neighbor's family, etc. will all help us in our push toward the finish line.
Also, any contributions from your own personal giving account gains us even more ground!
I am personally contributing $100 and getting everyone I know to test drive this month. It's free for them and they really enjoy the chance to ride in the car, too!
If you have any other ideas on how we can all team up as smart aficionados and owners to reach this achievement, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-575-3277.
Let's show them what smart people are made of!
Spread the word, and I hope to see each of you this month! Bring a couple of friends with you when you come!
For those that want to help us even more, charitable contributions can be mailed to:
