2016 Mazda 3 Gives Back in More Ways than One

Madza 3_review

It is always better to give than it is to receive. It’s no better time of year to prove this concept than during the holidays.

While making sure my children, husband & parents would be happy on December 25th, Madza gave me a gift of my own.

I was able to enjoy the 2016 Madza 3 for a little over a week during the Christmas break, which allowed me to get shopping done, in and out traffic quickly, and even spread a little Christmas cheer outside of my family.


This year, my family partnered with a friend and created the Purses with Purpose Campaign. We raised hundreds to fill 20 brand new bags for women at a local Atlanta Shelter, with all the things a woman really needs (a few wants).


I was able to deliver these bags on December 26th with my family, while driving the Madza 3. It felt so good to give back.

Mazda Gives Back Too!

In spirit of giving, Mazda has done something that no other car company has (at least with me). They gave me MONEY to donate to my charity of choice. How awesome is that?


I was given a Mazda Charitable Giving Card with $25 on the card and the authority to donate to and 501(c)3 Non-profit organization of my choice. I haven’t selected the organization yet, but I am leaning towards Girls, Inc., because I have a soft spot for young girls striving to be their best.

My Favorite Feature of the Mazda 3
