This December, MG Motor Australia is supporting one of Australia's largest charities, Australian Red Cross, to make every test drive count. As part of MG Motor's Test Drive for a Difference campaign, for test drives taken of an MG vehicle throughout December, we will donate $5.00 to Australian Red Cross up to a maximum total of $10,000.00.
Since 2018, the Test Drive for a Difference campaign has been an annual occurrence for MG Motor Australia, with the initiative's primary goal to raise vital funds for those who are experiencing loneliness or homelessness over the holiday season. Australians can test drive an MG vehicle from one of MG Motor's 66 authorised dealerships nationwide to participate, making their test drive count this festive season.
Funds raised from 01 - 31 December, through national MG vehicle test drives, will support the Australian Red Cross Night Cafe, a Brisbane-based establishment that provides practical and personal support to young people who are at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness in the local community.
MG Motor Australia's support for Australian Red Cross commenced earlier in 2020 at the inaugural Show & Shine competition, where funds were raised by over 300 classic and modern MG owners across Australia in celebration of the brand's rich heritage.
Peter Ciao, CEO, MG Motor Australia and New Zealand, said: "We are humbled to extend our relationship with Australian Red Cross this year and help vulnerable Australians, particularly at a time of year that can be difficult for those most at-risk."
"For many, the holiday season is a time to rejoice and celebrate. However, we are acutely aware that not all Australians are afforded that opportunity and our Test Drive for a Difference campaign is designed to encourage potential MG owners to support the great work that Australian Red Cross is doing to combat homelessness on our streets."
Australian Red Cross' mission is to build a better society by helping those who need it most, working to assist Australia's vulnerable community members - no matter their circumstances.
The funds raised by MG Motor's community during December will help Australian Red Cross provide support services to help members of the Brisbane community facing hardship by creating effective pathways to gain knowledge and skills, access resources and services, and improve social connection and participation.
