Last week, we reported about the kindness displayed (literally) and extended by the Caterham F1 team to the victims of super typhoon Yolanda. For the recently concluded United States Grand Prix as well as the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend, the team adorned its Formula 1 cars with this beautiful message: "To Philippines with love." This is in support of the benevolent campaign by AirAsia, the team's major sponsor.
Now, Caterham F1 is taking its altruism to another level. According to the team's official website, it is raffling off an authentic F1 steering wheel used by driver Charles Pic at the 2013 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix earlier this month. To qualify for this raffle, all you have to do is make a donation for the benefit of the Yolanda victims via a special page set up on the website of JustGiving, said to be "the world's leading platform for charity giving."
According to Caterham F1, "the campaign will run from November 21, before the Brazilian Grand Prix, and will continue until 1200 GMT on Monday, December 2, when the draw will be made by random selection from all those who donated funds to the campaign."
If you're donating and eyeing that gorgeous (and very expensive) steering wheel, take note of this instruction: "To be able to win the wheel, anyone who donates needs to make sure he/she can be contacted after making his/her donation. When the donation is made via the JustGiving page, the contact preferences must be set to allow the donor's e-mail address to be passed on to the fundraiser, or Twitter handles can be left in donation messages, again enabling that person to be contacted if he/she is lucky enough to win."
No minimum donation amount has been specified.
Wow. We think we're officially hardcore Caterham F1 fans now. Thanks, guys! You're the best. May you finally score a point at the season-ending race in Sao Paulo tomorrow.
