Mississauga, Ontario – Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada and its dealers have donated more than $458,000 to Right to Play, an international organization that uses sport and play programs to improve conditions for children and communities affected by war, poverty and disease.

Since 2008, Mitsubishi and its dealers have raised more than $1.4 million for the charitable organization. The latest donation was raised through the spring Right To Play Challenge, a three-month drive that, for the third year in a row, saw Mitsubishi donate $100 for every new vehicle sold.

“This donation represents a huge achievement for Mitsubishi and our dealers,” said Koji Soga, president and CEO of Mitsubishi Motors of Canada. “Each year, our staff and dealers work harder to generate more funds to support Right To Play and the children who benefit from their programs.”

The charity is headquartered in Toronto, with national offices in the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
