Mazda has, once again, shown their immense generosity and good will by donating to support relief efforts in Nepal. In the automotive world, Mazda is considered a very small automaker; yet, they are one of the more charitable ones around. Mazda was one of the few automakers to contribute to earthquake relief in Yunnan, China back in 2008 and the have been active in North America through several charities including the SPCA, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Make a Wish, JRDF, Humane Society and the list goes on.
You can read about the Mazda SPCA story (Mazda donates to the Northern California SPCA).
“Mazda Motor Corporation wishes to convey its heartfelt sympathy and concern for all people affected by the recent major earthquakes in Nepal. Mazda has decided to donate three million yen to support relief efforts and a swift recovery in the region through the Japanese Red Cross Society.” – – Mazda Media
That total comes out to a little over $25,000 U.S. Considering that Mazda’s annual earnings match many automaker’s monthly earnings, it’s a thoughtful gesture. Well done Mazda.
