Chrysler 300 at Golden Globes
Disaster barely begins to describe the situation in Haiti caused by the earthquake that struck the island nation on January 12, and efforts to help recover from the damage have captured the world's attention.
While GM is auctioning out its final limited-edition 427 Corvette at an upcoming Barrett-Jackson event in Arizona, as our very own Richard Read first reported over at CelebsAndCars.com, Chrysler has donated a very special 300 sedan that was signed by 300 celebrities during this past weekend's 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
The Chrysler 300 was the personal ride of the brand's new CEO, Olivier Francois, and it is now destined to be auctioned off in the hope of raising more than $1 million.
Some of the stars who signed the car include Samuel L. Jackson, Sandra Bullock, Morgan Freeman, Sigourney Weaver and Neil Patrick Harris.
Additionally, Meryl Streep, Christina Aguilera, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Felicity Huffman and Colin Firth all arrived to the event in special Chrysler 300 "eco style" limited edition models, which are also to be donated and auctioned for charity. Based off of the regular Chrysler 300, the eco style edition vehicles are accessorized with eco-friendly materials such as cork, bamboo, recycled jute carpeting and suede seat inserts and feature refurbished wheels.
The High Gear Media network is also doing its part to help the victims of the Haiti disaster. Each site features a direct link to the American Red Cross where you, too, can make a donation.
