The donation will support AmeriCares U.S. Disaster Relief Fund, which provides medical aid, bottled water, hygiene products and relief supplies to survivors of tornadoes, hurricanes and other disasters here at home.

  1. This is a fine example of how we as human beings should be interdependant on each other for the well being of one another. Chrysler had recied help from the aggressive approach that The Obama administration gave in order to save our USA dealerships from a possible disaster. Chrysler responded in a profound and positive way by way of taking it upon themselves to give back. Wow go Chyrsler only in the USA

      In reply to the last comment,
      You are right on point. Right now, more than ever, corporations must be bold. They have to lead. They have to risk. They have to come alive again, to wake up and except their role as community stewards. We too must be bold. Apathy must be tossed aside. We can’t sit on the sidelines waiting for someone to point the way. Get out… volunteer, help your neighbor, help your government, help someone in your family. Even small acts of civility like opening a door for someone, greeting someone with a smile, encouraging others, etc. goes a long way. Chrysler is a shining example of what can be done if you simply take action and believe in change. We can’t loath ourself as a nation. We are not perfect. We’ve made some financial errors as individuals and as a country. I think we’ve beaten ourselves up enough. Lets move forward.
