Sure, you can see Leap Year as the year in which there is just another day. Nothing more, nothing less.
Or you can see it as “extra” day; time with which you have been gifted to give back to others. That’s the impetus behind the #DayItForward campaign by Chevrolet. Paul Edwards, Chevrolet VP of Marketing, puts it best: “Time is such a precious commodity and having an extra day this year presents an amazing opportunity for all of us to do something impactful.”
Chevrolet has done some incredible things so far, with the help of many friends. For instance, Chevrolet teamed up with Kevin Spacey and through The Kevin Spacey Foundation, they were able to provide an aspiring young actor with the opportunity to go to drama school. With Jimmy Kimmel, Chevy helped provide school supplies to teachers at Whaley Middle School in Los Angeles.
So…how did you use your extra time this year to #DayItForward? Keep it up throughout the year!

We all want the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt. It’s smarter, better looking, and more capable than any that have come before it—and those that have come before have been quite successful at DeLillo Chevrolet. But one of the first recipients of the new car is an unlikely one: FIRST, a K-12 robotics program that helps raise money for student robotics opportunities across the country, especially in communities underrepresented in STEM fields.
The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Volt was donated to FIRST to help raise some of those funds. “The Volt exemplifies technology, and behind the next-generation Chevrolet Volt is a diverse team of engineers who understand the power of science and math,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet Marketing Director. “FIRST brings science and math alive outside the classroom, just like we are bringing it alive on the road.”
The organization will auction the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Volt, with proceeds going to support its many STEM programs around the United States. This is just the latest of many collaborations between Chevrolet and FIRST—for instance, just last year, GM engineers worked with 866 FIRST teams representing 10,000 students.
