In Berlin, at a press conference in the Max Schmeling Halle, SEAT and Shakira presented the prize in the fundraising campaign for Shakira's charity foundation, Pies Descalzos (Bare Feet), a unique SEAT Leon appropriately called Leon Pies Descalzos.
"The support for Pies Descalzos is very welcome", said Shakira during the press conference. "The need for education and proper nutrition for the children in my home country Colombia is very big and I trust that SEAT's initiative will aid a lot."
"By supporting Shakira's charity foundation, we show our social responsibility", commented Erich Schmitt, SEAT's president. "We use our massive advertising campaign in all European countries that will be visited by Shakira to incorporate the possibility to donate money to Pies Descalzos."
A unique car
The Leon Pies Descalzos was developed by SEAT in cooperation with Shakira. In the design process Shakira acted as a consultant on colors and materials. The standard SEAT León Cupra is now transformed into a totally unique car that one lucky person will be able to win in the drawing at the end of the fundraising campaign in May.
The fundraising campaign started yesterday in connection with Shakira's first concert on the European Tour in Hamburg. It will be promoted in all communication channels in the integrated advertising campaign that SEAT has launched benefiting from the Shakira cooperation. It will end on May 15 and the León Pies Descalzos will be handed over to its winner during the Barcelona Motor Show in the beginning of June.
The markets where you can enter in the drawing are: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.
Win the Leon Pies Descalzos for 1 Euro
To be able to win the car you have to donate money to Pies Descalzos through SEAT's campaign. Either by sending an SMS to a dedicated number in each country and donate 1 Euro or by entering the dedicated Shakira/SEAT website - www.catch-the-fever.com - where you will be able to donate any sum you would like with a credit card.
The León Pies Descalzos that SEAT is donating to the fundraising campaign represents a value of 27.300 Euros in its equivalent version on the Spanish market. During the press conference in Berlin, Erich Schmitt handed over a cheque with the same amount to Shakira to give the fundraising a flying start.
The most powerful road-going SEAT to date
The base for the car is the recently presented SEAT León Cupra. This car has already secured its place in the history books by being the Spanish brand's most powerful road-going car to date. Developing 240 hp (177 kW) the new Cupra model integrates all of SEAT's expertise in creating cars with an overtly sporty attitude.
The design alterations in the León Pies Descalzos include the exterior color, which is a unique lilac metallic. This color can also be found on several details in the interior such as the dashboard and the back of the seats. Furthermore, the standard 18-inch wheels are painted black. The Pies Descalzos logotype (a bare foot) is integrated in the seats as well as in several places on the exterior.
Fundacion Pies Descalzos
The "Fundación Pies Descalzos" (the Bare Feet Foundation) was founded in Colombia. The organization is devoted to finding and providing opportunities for children in Colombia. It originated in Barranquilla, the hometown of Shakira on the Caribbean coast of Colombia, and is now reaching other parts of the country.
The goal is to improve the education, nutrition, and the lives of the thousands of displaced children who are living in perilous conditions in Colombia.
