Minacs Donates Over $60,000 to Hyundai Hope On Wheels

Donation in Aid of Pediatric Cancer Research

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2013) - Minacs Marketing Solutions (a division of global business solutions company Aditya Birla Minacs), today announced a contribution of $60,752 to Hyundai Hope On Wheels® in support of pediatric cancer research.

Minacs executed an integrated marketing and fundraising campaign on behalf of Hyundai Motor America, Hyundai Hope On Wheels, and participating Hyundai dealers throughout the United States. Minacs designed marketing materials and distributed them through various customer touch points including direct mail, email, digital display advertisement, and text messages. Minacs also collected funds via point of purchase donations. A portion of the money Minacs earned from managing the campaign was donated directly back to the charity.

The mission of Hyundai Hope On Wheels is to raise awareness about childhood cancer, raise life-saving research funds and celebrate the lives of children affected by this disease. The program provides grants to eligible institutions nationwide pursuing innovative pediatric cancer research. These grants are designed to develop new treatments and ultimately a cure.

John Krafcik, CEO, Hyundai Motor America, said, "We appreciate Minacs' support of Hope On Wheels, which has become one of the leaders in the battle against childhood cancer. This generous donation is symbolic of our partnership, and we're delighted to have Minacs on the team with us fighting this terrible disease." 

Mike Doobay, Global Leader, Minacs Marketing Solutions said, "Close to 15,000 new cases of childhood cancer are diagnosed in the US each year, while only 4% of federal cancer funds are allocated to pediatric cancers. We applaud Hyundai Motor America and its dealers for their activism and support of this very worthy cause. We are pleased to have been given the opportunity to participate."
