Dads Doing Good
National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI), in partnership with Honda, is proud to support the release of the 2014 Honda Odyssey.
As the premier fatherhood renewal organization in the country, NFI works in every sector and at every level of society to engage fathers in the lives of their children. In a unique partnership with Life of Dad (LoD), the social network for dads, NFI and LoD have created #DadsDoingGood, a campaign to show the world how dads can use the dynamic 2014 Honda Odyssey to do good in communities. Each of the next five weeks will bring a brand new video of our dads in communities on the West Coast lending a helping hand (or is it a helping van?).
Week 1 > Mobile Library
The dads use the 2014 Honda Odyssey as a mobile library. Arriving at a Burbank, CA pre-school, the dads give books away to all of the kids. This video shows just how dynamic the new Odyssey can be—it can even be a library-on-wheels.
Week 2 > Lemonade for Charity
The dads use the 2014 Honda Odyssey to set up a lemonade stand. The dads use the proceeds from the lemonade stand to help raise awareness for congenital heart defects.
Week 3 > Little League Surprise
The dads remake a little league field by replacing the pitcher's mound, backstop and batter's box with the help of a contractor, coaches and players.
Week 4 > Surfing Sensation
Dads bring the Odyssey to the beach, where they help a volunteer group teach kids with cystic fibrosis how to surf. Watch as one child takes her first wave ever!
Week 5 > Drive-In Theater
Dads arrive at a student film school and with help from two Odysseys, host an extraordinary movie screening to unveil the student films with popcorn, soda and the red-carpet treatment.
