If you thought Fiesta Movement agents rocked the social media world this past six months, just wait until the second chapter when 20 new agent teams begin spreading the word about the Ford Fiesta. A new group of agents will be enlisted to engage their local communities by developing communications about Fiesta, leveraging social media as the means to spread the word about Ford’s all-new 40 mpg car. Twenty teams of agents in major markets across the country will complete a series of missions, where they will compete in challenges online and locally that immerse them in cultural movements, allowing them to ignite passion into their communities through social media while opening the discussion about Fiesta. After completing the challenge, agents will produce and place the creative content on www.fiestamovement.com. The best content will be recognized based on online consumer interaction and consumers’ opinions about their work. Applications can be submitted on www.fiestamovement.com starting today and running through Jan. 31. Read the rest of this entry »

September 22, 2009 GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Family-owned Borgman Ford is revving up to add some drive to the Komen Grand Rapids Race for the Cure to raise money for the fight against breast cancer. Walkers, runners or folks who just want to discover “Why Ford” can have an extra $20 donated to the Grand Rapids Komen cause just by downloading a certificate (visit: www.fordcares.com to download) and taking a test drive in one of Borgman’s fabulous Fords. Make sure you tell your Borgman representative to supply you with the dealer code to enter on the Ford Cares website as proof of your test drive. Enter the code on the www.fordcares.com site and you’ll have made your contribution.
“Participating in this event was a natural for us,” said John Borgman, second generation owner of the historic dealership located on 28th Street in Grandville. “We believe in making a difference in our community. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and 40,000 will die this year. How can you not want to do everything in your power to fight those odds.”
Borgman encourages everyone to start with the easy money and then register for the race. The Grand Rapids Komen Race for the Cure is slated for September 26, 2009 at the Rivertown Crossings Mall in Grandville. The Race for the Cure is a 5k (3.1 mile) run or walk and you can have your race timed or just walk for fun. Support this effort and join a team by logging onto www.komengr.org and clicking the Race for the Cure tab. Set a personal fundraising goal and start collecting donations from your friends and family. Let them know donations as little as $5 still help make a difference in the lives of the 180,000 women affected by breast cancer each year.
This is your chance to apply to participate in Ford’s latest drive experience – a long-weekend road trip in the brand new 2010 Taurus, Ford’s flagship sedan. If you are selected for the Ford Taurus Game Day Drive Experience you and a friend will to drive the 2010 Taurus over three days, attend one pro Football game, and demonstrate the Taurus’ state-of-the-art technology features to people along your drive.
For the Ford Taurus Game Day Drive Experience, Ford is looking for football fans who are involved in the social media community. To help us choose, this application includes questions about you and how you share and connect with others online. Do you have a Facebook profile or Twitter account? Do you post photos and videos for everyone to enjoy? You will also be asked to select the football game and date closest to your home.

Ford’s Role in the Fight Against Breast Cancer
Ford is proud of its 15-year National Sponsorship of the Komen Race for the Cure. To date, Ford has dedicated more than $100 million to the cause. Our commitment runs well beyond raising funds. We know that awareness leads to early detection and early detection saves lives, so we are also working to increase breast cancer awareness–last year creating over one billion media impressions. We also encourage our employees to participate. More than 50,000 Ford employees have participated in The Race and thousands of our dealers support the race in their area.
For information on how to sign up for the Komen Race for the Cure® in your area, please call 1-888-603-RACE or visit komen.org.
