In 2012, an estimated 14,138 children were injured on U.S. farms and ranches. That’s why Progressive Agriculture Foundation (PAF) was started: to help prevent these injuries and keep rural children alive and well. The five employees who work for PAF visit many states across the US and Canada to support the 415+ Safety Days each year, all organized by hundreds of volunteers committed to rural safety.
PAF is excited to announce they are a finalist for Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good. The program is showcasing five nonprofit organizations each day for 50 days at https://apps.facebook.com/carsforgood/. Each day, visitors to the page can vote for two of the five organizations they feel are most deserving of new Toyota vehicles.
So how can your vote help?
With more than 100 Safety Days and sponsors within driving distance of the PAF Kansas City Office, a Toyota Tundra would help us boost awareness and reduce overhead. A Toyota Tundra decked out with the PAF and Safety Days logos would help increase visibility as we travel to appointments, tradeshows and Safety Days.
It also would reduce rental car expenditures by $2,500 annually. Since it takes about $13 to get one child to a Safety Day, saving $2,500 means 192 more kids could attend a Safety Day each year. That’s nearly 200 kids learning how to stay safe and healthy in their communities.
That’s worth a vote on October 23, isn’t it?
