Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, D&M Auto Leasing has expanded to include Grand Prairie, Houston, and Fort Worth, making it one of the largest consumer car leasing companies in the United States. Highly rated by its customers, D&M Auto Leasing supports more than 20 charities, including Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

Founded in 1980 by a mother who lost her daughter in a drunk driving accident, MADD strives to stop underage drinking and reduce the number of drunk driving accidents and fatalities. According to the organization’s statistics, 28 people are killed every day due to drunk driving, and every two minutes a person is injured in a drunk driving crash.

Those interesting in supporting victims and survivors of drunk driving through MADD can volunteer, participate in a MADD-sponsored event, or make a donation. Although any amount of money is welcome, MADD encourages giving a “bear hug,” which, for $35, provides a teddy bear to a child affected by drunk driving.
