Since January 12th more than 100,000 people in Haiti have lost their lives due to the earthquake and many others remain injured and homeless. The need for aid is overwhelming. Stars For A Cause (501.C 3), in collaboration with the Chrysler Brand, is handing over the keys of a Chrysler 300 "Haiti" for auction with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the American Red Cross Haiti relief efforts.
"It is our social responsibility to assist in any way we can to help contribute to the relief efforts," said Olivier Francois, President and Chief Executive Officer – Chrysler brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "Hundreds of celebrity signatures now grace the exterior of the Chrysler 300 Haiti edition thanks to the actors and actresses attending a recent red carpet event and we are hopeful the car will raise a significant amount of money at auction, which will be given to the American Red Cross for their Haiti relief efforts."
