Donation made for each “thank you” tweet or post

In grateful recognition of the bravery, service and sacrifice of the nation’s military and first responders, New Holland has announced the True Blue Salute program. From now through July 5, 2014, New Holland is inviting everyone to show their appreciation to our nation’s heroes by tweeting a “thank you” at #truebluesalute or posting a “thank you” on the New Holland Facebook page.  For each “thank you” tweeted or posted, New Holland will donate $1, up to $10,000, to Fisher House Foundation, which provides a "home away from home" for military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness or injury.

Donations to Fisher House Foundation can also be made by texting “salute” to 20222. By doing so, a one-time donation of $5.00 will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your prepaid balance. Message and data rates may apply.

“New Holland is honored to show our appreciation and support of our military and their families through the True Blue Salute program and to contribute to the exceptional work being done by Fisher House Foundation.  It’s our way of saying thanks to our nation’s heroes who serve and protect us,” says Mark Hooper, director marketing for New Holland in North America.

Since January 2012, New Holland has raised over $1.2 million for Fisher House Foundation through True Blue Salute programs.

NASCAR: An American Salute

As the Official Agricultural Equipment of NASCAR, New Holland will join NASCAR in its long-standing tradition of supporting the United States Armed Forces with NASCAR: An American Salute, a platform that rallies teams, tracks, fans and partners to collectively honor active and retired service members and military families. NASCAR: An American Salute kicked-off Memorial Day weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway's Coca-Cola 600 and will conclude Independence Day weekend at Daytona International Speedway's Coke Zero 400.

During the seven-week span between the two races, teams, tracks, partners and fans will show their thanks through various activities on and off the track. The wider NASCAR community can show gratitude by visiting www.NASCAR.com/Salute and using the hashtag #NASCARsalutes on Instagram and Twitter.
