New York, New York – Following Toyota Motor Corporation’s announcement of a U.S.$3 million direct donation to tsunami relief organizations, Toyota Motor North America announced that Toyota’s North American operations will match up to $1 million in team member and associate contributions to the International Response Fund of the American Red Cross and UNICEF.
In addition, Toyota and Lexus dealers and suppliers across the country have demonstrated their support through independent contributions.
Toyota believes that contributions from North America, along with those from other Toyota affiliates worldwide, will raise Toyota’s total global contribution to over $4 million.
Nissan has pledged 100 million yen (U.S.$956,000) to help the disaster relief effort. In addition, the company has also pledged to match employees’ personal donations with an equivalent contribution to the disaster relief effort.
