Ford’s Focus on Hunger


I wanted to quickly inform you about Ford Motor Company’s recent outreach to our organization regarding an opportunity to receive a $10,000 donation.

Our chances of recieving this donation are exponentially increased as people like you either choose to participate in the challenge (see below) or simply share with your friends.

It’s Happening on Facebook
To summarize, Ford is inviting people to create a video no longer than 2 minutes, and submit it via the Ford Focus Facebook page at

What’s in it for those Submitting Videos?
Twenty selected participants along with a friend will get a free trip to a ‘secret location in Europe’ to test drive the all-new 2012 Ford Focus. Additionally, Ford will make a $10,000 contribution to the qualified charity of the participant’s choice. Our organization’s focus on hunger makes us qualified to receive the donation!

What Should the Video Include?
It’s important to note that contributing to this effort is not about fancy video production. Winning video submissions will include the four following basics:

  • Details about Martha’s Table
  • How you would help Martha’s Table start something more with a $10k contribution
  • Why you are qualified to participate in this event
  • Why you are excited to drive the all-new Ford Focus

The details of this program can be found on Facebook by clicking here (you’ll be prompted to ‘like’ the page in order to learn about the campaign, see the video explaining it, review current entries, etc.)
