Kia Motors has partnered with DonorsChoose.org to provide up to $2 million in learning materials to 125,000 needy public schools.
Online PR News – 18-September-2012 – Dallas, TX – After their success on the track this year, Kia is hoping that racing fans will be inspired to give to local schools as part of Kia’s ‘Double Your Impact’ campaign. Kia Motors America recently made a $1 million pledge to DonorsChoose.org, a commitment that will match community donations to raise a total of $2 million for schools located near 755 Kia showrooms across the country.
Dallas Kia dealer Moritz Kia Hurst is proud to be a part of the Kia family, especially when the generous nature of the Kia Motor Company shines. In all, 125,000 public schools will receive learning materials and educational experiences via the DonorsChoose.org contributions. The Donors Choose website currently lists 78 projects in the Dallas area that are requesting supplies or financial assistance.
"Kia has become the fastest growing car company in the U.S. over the last five years, and as our sales have expanded so has our role as a responsible corporate citizen," said Michael Sprague, executive vice president, marketing and communications, KMA. "We want to give back to the communities that we call home, all across the country, and our million-dollar donation to DonorsChoose.org is a great start, but it's only the beginning. Combining our matching program with the communications power of our championship-winning race team, we can literally double our impact for public school teachers and students."

Moritz Kia Hurst will also be posting updates about this campaign on both Facebook (facebook.com/Moritz.Kia.Hurst.Texas) and Twitter (@MoritzKiaHurst).
