We Care, You Choose: Nominate Here!


 

Background: Each year, Toyota Carlsbad holds the We Care, You Choose Campaign, where we ask our San Diego community to nominate and vote for their favorite local charity to be awarded up to $5,000. As a part of our Loving Care initiative, Toyota Carlsbad awards four charitable organizations in our area with a $2,500 contribution, to be potentially matched by Toyota USA for a total of $5,000 per charity. This process is fully done through our social media channels (our blog, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Instagram), so stay tuned and keep checking in!
