The people at Symbol of Success have hit on the idea of partnering with others in order to utilize the Rolls Royce Phantom - at $70,000,000 easily the most expensive car ever, lavish, impregnable, itself a symbol of success - as a tool for fundraising purposes.
Specifically, Placer County businesses will be able to have their names, logos, slogans, or any other messages they desire, hand-painted on the surface of the exquisitely designed and sumptuous vehicle. And Justin Barnes - the celebrated painter featured on the Discovery Channel’s American Chopper – is the artist commissioned to do the job.
From each purchase of space by a Placer County based-business, the people at the Symbol of Success have already chosen to donate sums between $1500-$4,000 to the following local charities: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Sacramento, Placer SPCA, K-Love Radio, the Sierra College Foundation, the Sutter Roseville Medical Center Foundation, Touch of Understanding, the Animal Adoption & Rescue Foundation (AARF) and the Placer Theatre Ballet. Those behind the project have indicated, however, that they are open to talking to other charitable organizations, who, if they meet certain requirements, will be allowed to participate.
The Symbol of Success fundraising drive in Placer County is only the beginning. From there it will progress to Los Angeles, the Bay Area, San Diego and Orange County, and then to other states. The nature of the project will remain the same in all essential details: businesses will purchase advertising space on the Phantom and the proceeds will go to local charities.
After all the space on the Phantom has been taken up, it is headed for exhibition in Las Vegas, with celebrities in attendance, not to mention excited crowds of tourists and city residents. From there, the car will be on be display at car shows the world over and then will be returned to Las Vegas, where it will be placed in its final destination:
In short, the participating companies – whether startups or going concerns - will have the opportunity to advertise their products and/or services all over the world, for a relatively small investment. Local non-profits will also receive a boost. And all involved will have a shot at taking their place in history.
The people at Symbol of Success, which has a global reach, are dedicated to coming up with unique and effective ways to fundraise for charitable organizations. They are
currently working on new projects, the nature of which they intend to disclose in the near future.
