Korea's Hyundai Motor praised by U.S. Congress for childhood cancer awareness campaign Updated: 2015-09-19 14:48:11 KST

Hyundai Motor has won plaudits from U.S. Congress.
Not for its designs or safety features, but for the Korean automaker's almost two-decade long campaign to raise awareness of childhood cancer.
The 99-member Congressional Pediatric Cancer Caucus submitted a statement this week praising Hyundai's "Hope on Wheels" program.
This statement was officially included in the congressional record.
Hyundai launched the anti-cancer campaign in 1998.
The way it works is quite simple.
Fourteen U.S. dollars is added to the fund every time Hyundai sells a vehicle.
It might sounds small, but the accumulated donations have added up fast.
Total donations made under the program have exceeded 100 million dollars.
As well as raising awareness, the money is used to finance the development of medicine and treatment.
