We believe that there should be a connection between consumers, their cars and their desire to support a charitable organization
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2008
DriveWise Auto announces a new agreement with and opportunity to support the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition in its fight against ovarian cancer. DriveWise Auto is now offering a Charity Driven Auto Buying and Leasing platform to NOCC supporters and advocates that will aid in NOCC's mission to raise awareness and provide education about ovarian cancer. Individuals who support NOCC and its goals will be able to buy and lease the new and used vehicles of their choice through the DriveWise Auto platform which will then drive donations to the six California Chapters for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) on a per sale basis.
DriveWise Auto founders and social entrepreneurs Adam Slobin and Bryan Weissman have a deep interest in helping as many charitable organizations as possible through their socially responsible business model and philosophy. Through this recent agreement with NOCC, DriveWise Auto will make donations that range from $50 to $100 per vehicle sold to anyone who names the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition as their charity of choice, or to any of their clients who have an interest in supporting ovarian cancer education and awareness.
"We believe that there should be a connection between consumers, their cars and their desire to support a charitable organization," says CEO Adam Slobin. "DriveWise Auto creates that connection and offers people a very simple and socially responsible way to buy or lease a vehicle. Our Charity Driven platform truly creates a win-win situation for those who choose to use our services and the organizations they support."
Suzanne Goor, President of NOCC's San Fernando Valley Chapter, approached DriveWise Auto to assist her in her fundraising efforts for the San Fernando Valley Chapter of NOCC. Her outreach resulted in an agreement that will now reach all of NOCC's California chapters and will create an additional and very new means of fundraising for the organization. DriveWise Auto and the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition hope to increase awareness about ovarian cancer and the Charity Driven services that are available to other 501(c)(3) organizations and funds.
About the agreement, Goor says, "As an ovarian cancer survivor, it is empowering to meet people like Adam and Bryan from DriveWise Auto. I am extremely grateful and appreciative for their support, their passion about giving back to the community and their joining NOCC's mission to raise awareness and promote education about ovarian cancer. We are very pleased to be the recipient of this unique opportunity to support the fight against ovarian cancer."
