With a little less than 72 hours available to bid on Prince William and Kate's Range Rover, CharityStars.com has introduced their newest campaign with Business Mogul Renzo Rossi raising funds for earthquake ravaged Italy.

Two Days left to bid on Prince William's Royal Range Rover

There is just less than 72 hours left to bid on a top of the range 4x4 used by Prince William to transport his son George home from hospital following his birth three years ago, and funds raised will support the charities Sun Screen IT and Stand Down.

The auction is taking place online via CharityStars.com, which is dedicated entirely to auctioning exclusive lots in a bid to raise money for charities, and this amazing item currently stands at £66,020 but is expected to rise in the closing week of the auction.

The stunning Range Rover Vogue SE, which was Prince William and Catherine's personal vehicle, was originally supplied to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge via Land Rover's VIP Department, fitted with many additional features, and used by the Royal Household.

The sought after car is the one that the eyes of the world watched as William and Catherine carried their first born son and heir to the throne, His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge home from hospital for the first time.

CharityStars.com MD Robert Robinson said: "We are delighted to be hosting this auction and hope to take it to the next level in digital fundraising by raising a phenomenal amount of money for two incredible charities. Here at CharityStars.com we have now raised over £2.5 million net for a wide variety of charities and we look forward to seeing that grow and grow."

Proceeds from the CharityStars.com auction will go to Sun Screen IT, which donates IT equipment for schools, hospitals and orphanages in developing nations; and Stand Down, a Military Mental Health Charity, which provides online counselling and support to the Armed Forces Community.

Sun Screen IT Founder Nathaniel Comer said: "I am delighted to be working with CharityStars as they have such a well-established global platform with which we can reach our maximum potential for the sale and raise the most we can for our IT deployments to schools which really need our help."

It comes after a recent auction hosted by CharityStars.com where the shirt that Andy Murray wore when he won the 2016 Wimbledon final reached an incredible £10,000 for Malaria No More UK.

Bid for A Business Lunch With Renzo Rossi, Courtesy Of CHARITYSTARS.COM

The one thing that money can't buy in business is connections and influence. But this is your chance to meet and have lunch with a personality who has founded some of Italy's most iconic fashion brands: Renzo Rossi.

Rossi, head of the OTB Group, is the man behind Diesel and Viktor & Rolf, among other household fashion names. From small Italian labels, these brands went on to take the world by storm, through quality, innovation and a unique brand of management leadership and vision from Rossi.

The Italian is willing to share the story of how he did it, and to pass on all the tips he has to anyone who wants to further their career in the fashion industry – or who is just interested to meet one of Italy's most understated, yet prominent, businessmen.

From a small town in northern Italy, Diesel took over the world. Look around, and you're never far from a pair of Diesel jeans. Such is the power of the name, that Fiat even made a special edition model of its iconic 500 – another Italian classic – as a tribute. The OTB Group is one of the enduring success stories of fashion that has come from nowhere and slipped into the global public consciousness permanently. So how did it happen?

CharityStars, the UK's leading online auction site, is offering the chance to meet and have lunch with Rossi in Italy to find out, on a date that will be mutually agreed. Like all auctions organised by this innovative venture, the proceeds go to a charity that is directly nominated by the person donating the experience.

In the case of Rossi, the chosen charity is a cause extremely close to his heart, helping victims of the devastating recent earthquake in Italy, which dominated world news. All money raised from the auction will go to the Italian branch of the Red Cross: the most famous humanitarian charity in the world, which has been helping victims of disaster worldwide since 1863 and numbers a staggering 97 million staff and volunteers across the planet.

The earthquake in central Italy killed nearly 300 people, while more than 400 are still injured and thousands more have been made homeless and destitute.

By bidding for the unique opportunity to meet Rossi, you can help these victims to rebuild their lives.

The meeting and (delicious) lunch, valid for two people, will be organised in Breganze, which is where the OTB Group is based. Flights are not included, but it is very easy to get to: the closest airport is Verona.


This auction expires on 25 September 2016, for more information and to bid please visit:  http://www.charitystars.com/product/power-lunch-with-renzo-rosso-founder-of-diesel-3282
