Enterprise Rent-A-Car 50 Million Tree Pledge ($75 AMEX gift card giveaway ends 8/14/12)

Have you seen the new Enterprise Rent-A-Car “Thanks to America” commercial? If not keep an eye out for it. It will air from July 27, 2012 – August 12, 2012, including the closing ceremonies. You can also see the commercial on www.NBCOlympics.com.

The “Thanks to America” commercials highlight Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s commitment to plant 50 MILLION trees in North America. Wow! Fifty million trees. That is amazing! That is like planting a new Central Park EVERY 10 DAYS!

I don’t have to tell you how vital trees are to not only our country, but also our world.

Check out this commercial about the campaign. I’m not sure who the voice is but it sounds like Tom Selleck. 🙂

When you see the commercials you’ll notice Enterprise employees at National Forests. These are places where Enterprise has already planted trees.

This campaign is Enterprise’s way of giving back to the community and our country. That is why airing the commercials during the Olympics is a great idea. The Olympics provides the perfect way to say “Thanks to America” for choosing Enterprise and helping them grow from a start-up with seven Chevy sedans in 1957 to the largest/leading car rental company in North America today. The Olympic Games align with the values, can-do spirit and heritage of Enterprise as an American success story. Just like the Olympic athletes who have that same can-do spirit and success stories.

Enterprise has always prided it’s self on providing outstanding customer service. It’s part of their core values.

Enterprise recently conducted a survey and found that saying “thank you” can have a significant positive impact; however, more than 70% of Americans feel that, as a society, we simply don’t say “thank you” enough. I have to agree. Growing up I ALWAYS had to say “please” and “thank you“, among other things. Not saying these things was not tolerated in my home. When I became a parent I enforced that on my children too. Sadly most of my kid’s friends do not say “please” or “thank you“. I find that very sad. Especially saying “thank you“. It takes only a moment to say but it has a big impact.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car demonstrates demonstrates appreciation to its customers  and they would like to encourage them to say “thank you” to others in return.

One way you can say “thank you” is to go to the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Facebook page and express your thanks. You can plant a “virtual tree” on their Facebook page and thank someone special in your life. You can also learn more about how Enterprise is planning on planting 1 million trees every year for 50 years.

You can find the “Dedicated to Thanks” tab on their Facebook page, or you can click here to go directly to the thank you page.

To learn more about Enterprise Rent-A-Car or to find a location near you visit www.Enterprise.com. You can also find them on Twitter @EnterpriseCares.

To help encourage you to say “thank you”, Enterprise Rent-A-Car would like to give a lucky reader a $75.00 American Express (AMEX) gift card. THANK YOU Enterprise!

To enter please go to the Enterprise Facebook page and dedicate a “thank you” message to someone – or – if you don’t use Facebook tell me who you would like to thank and why?

For extra entries you can use the Rafflecopter widget (below). You MUST complete the initial entry requirement or else additional entries won’t qualify.

This giveaway is open to US residents only and will end on August 14, 2012 at 12:01 AM (EST). The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via e-mail and will  have three days to reply or a new winner will be chosen.
