Subaru Builds Communities and People (PS… they also sell cars)

My sister recently sent me what she considers to be the best issue of a corporate/consumer magazine. Very little in it is about cars. Rather, it highlights projects and activities funded by the Subaru Foundation.

Here are some of the stories:

  • Samost Jewish Family and Children’s Service helps everyone from teems to seniors with job placement.
  • The Traveling Trainers teaches anyone who ventures outdoors to enjoy and “leave no trace”.
  • A wildlife educator and companion screech owl spread the word about saving animals in the Sierra Nevada.
  • Children’s museums around the country are teaching kids how to eat healthy.
  • Lastly, the cover story is about adopting “Winston”, an abandoned puppy and the value of rescuing and finding pets through shelters.

My sister concluded with this statement: “Makes me feel good about driving my car.”

Question: how many corporate magazines evoke these emotions in consumers?I have a feel the answer would be “few”.
