A €70,000 Lunch With Silvio Berlusconi: The Perfect Gift For A Grandmother
Do you need advice on finding the perfect gift for your grandmother? You could buy her flowers, a book, perfume… or you can do what one bidder did and surprise your granny with a lunch with Silvio Berlusconi, the renowned former Italian prime minister. It’s not the cheapest gift. The winner bid €70,000 to win the lunch, auctioned by CharityStars. The amount, however, was completely worth it. The proceeds directly supported the central Italy earthquake victims. To make the gift even more special, the lunch is going to take place at Berlusconi’s personal residence in Arcore. “Dear friends, I decided to auction this experience to support the victims of the Italian earthquake. I think everyone should do everything in his/her means to help our fellow citizens, and sometimes we can be helpful even with smaller gestures. I’ll be really glad to meet and have lunch with the generous winner of the auction, that I hope is going to be sold to a high price, since the proceeds will support the Italian Red Cross!” - Silvio Berlusconi

Valentino Rossi Personally Delivers His New Yamaha To CharityStars Bidder
Winning a new limited edition Yamaha YZF-R1 is a dream, especially if it’s been signed by the 9-times world champion Valentino Rossi. But what if Valentino Rossi personally delivers it, too? Marco got to live this dream after winning a CharityStars auction. A huge fan of Valentino Rossi, Marco met his idol and received a beautiful motorcycle directly from Rossi. Thanks to his generous donation, Marco has supported La Gotita Onlus, a charity that provides education and health assistance to children in need in com munities throughout Bolivia. Furthermore, Marco decided to donate his new Yamaha YZF-R1 to a music school. “As a long time Motorsports lover, this thrilling experience has been a dream come true. Receiving a Yamaha motorbike, handed to me by no other than the legendary Valentino Rossi, was the ultimate experience. I’d like to thank Valentino, Yamaha, and CharityStars for this once-in-a-lifetime chance. I couldn't be more happy to have supported La Gotita Onlus, and for having the chance to donate the bike to a music school I have been collaborating with for a long time.” - Marco
Playstation 4 Helps Kids In Need
For Playstation’s 20th anniversary, Sony Computer Entertainment teamed up with CharityStars to auction 50 PlayStation®4 (PS4™) 20th Anniversary Editions to support Terre des Homme. These consoles feature the most innovative technology along with the original gray paint scheme, recalling the first PlayStation design. This limited edition console is a true must-have for every gaming fan. The winners got a unique collection piece and supported a great cause. The proceeds supported the Terre des Hommes project, which provides direct care to over 600 minors suffering from physical or psychological violence. The campaign reached a goal of more than $100,ooo in support of the Terre des Homme project. “Here at Playstation, we think that every kid should have the possibility to grow happily, without knowing what violence means. Unfortunately, not all of them have had this privilege. For this reason we’re proud to collaborate with Terre des Homme for this project that we hope could bring happiness and fun to all those children that didn’t have this opportunity.” - Marco Saletta - Sony Computer Entertainment Italy General Manager.
Chiara Ferragni, Personal Shopping Assistant For A Day
Having Chiara Ferragni as a personal shopping assistant is not something you can have every day. However, Debora and Solange were rewarded for their generosity with just this. These two girls were the winners of the auction “A shopping session with the glamorous fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni” to support World Wildlife Fund (WWF). This unique experience took place in a Stefanel Store in the center of Milan, which opened its doors to exclusively host the two winners and their celebrity shopping assistant. “I had a whole store in my city just for me, with amazing clothes, my best friend and an stunning personal shopper… what more could I ask for? Morevoer, it was also an amazing way to give back, I suggest CharityStars to anyone who wants to make some good for the others and also for themselves!” said Debora, one of the two young winners. The proceeds of the auction directly supported the Virunga Emergency. The Virunga National Park is a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site. Unfortunately, under its amazing landscapes are oil fields, which have attracted oil companies that threaten the delicate ecosystem of the park and its species preservation.
Candy Crush Helps Kids In The Hospital
We’ve all played Candy Crush, the addicting app that broke so many records. Conceived by Riccardo Zacconi, the app reached the highest position in every game ranking and had over 45 milion unique monthly users. It was this amazing result that convinced Francesco and Luca, two entrepreneurs in the app business, to bid 25,500€ for the opportunity to have lunch with Riccardo Zacconi. “Both of us really admire Riccardo, since he is one of the few Italians who created a billion dollar company in the same market we operate in. He represents an example from which we can learn so much, and that is why we were extremely interested in the opportunity to visit King headquarters and have lunch with him”, said the auction winners. The proceeds of the auction supported Liberamente Onlus and its project, which helped renovate “La Casa Pediatrica”, the pediatric wing of the Fatebenefratelli Hospital in Milan, Italy. However, Francesco and Luca were not the only winners. Our CharityStars team had its own little victory as well. The hospital thanked CharityStars for the collaboration and the visibility of the campaign, and a plaque with the CharityStars logo was hung in the hospital to remind everyone that even an app can have a “sweet” impact on people in need.
