The slogan of the Martin Honda dealership in Newark, DE is “Martin Delivers” and they sure stepped up and delivered for our families of kids with cancer!
As you know, during the month of March, Martin Honda donated $100 for EVERY new car sold. In a month with some crazy weather, they sold 186 cars and, as you’ll see in the picture, they presented me with a check for $18,600 this morning! Boy, am I glad that not only do they have great big hearts there, but they are great salespeople selling great cars. Ali’s first car was a Honda Accord.
Not only is this money going to make a huge difference in the lives of 37 families of a child with cancer, but Martin Honda has also provided us with invaluable awareness of childhood cancer. They ran radio and TV ads and had signage in the showroom. Please continue to show support for our partners, Martin Honda, by stopping in and checking out their cars. Or, just stop by and tell them ‘thank you’ for being on our team. Special thanks to General Manager, Hommy Poursaied, and Sales Manager, Jim Blaszkow, for making this possible.
Do you want to know the kinds of families that Martin’s generosity will touch? Let me introduce you to Ashley & Samantha.
Ashley and Samantha are 3 year old twins. On January 7, 2014, Ashley was diagnosed with AML (leukemia…like my son). Just 5 days later, Samantha was also diagnosed with AML. Both girls were also found to have solid tumors in their mid-sections. Mom & Dad earn $20,000 and Mom is now staying in the hospital while Dad continues to work and take care of their 8 and 14 year old sons. The girls are undergoing intensive treatment for at least the next 6 months.
