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.
