Painting of 2011 Volvo S60 made by blind turkish artist to be auctioned on eBay

Some gestures can just make the difference between an average company and highly rated one. Some very kind gestures can change the opinion that people have about a certain company, including an automaker. The communication and media guys working for Volvo surely deserve the money the Swedish automaker is paying them.

Esref Armagan, a blind Turkish artist, was invited by Volvo to their headquarters in Sweden some months ago to paint the 2011 Volvo S60 executive sedan, yet unseen by the public. Now, Volvo has decided to put up for auction on eBay the painting created by Esref Armagan, the blind Turkish artist. Well, the best part comes now. All the money earned from the selling of this painting will be donated to the World Blind Union, which is a non profit, non political, non religious and non governmental organization representing over 160 million blind and partially sighted people from 177 countries around the world.

Lukas Dohle, director of Live Communication and Social Media at Volvo Cars, has stated that ``It was an amazing experience to work together with Esref Armagan. He truly embraces life and we think that his approach matches exactly how we at Volvo embrace life. Through this auction and the donation to World Blind Union we will take this rewarding corporation even one step further``.

The auction of the painting will take place on eBay Canada but it will also be accessible globally on the address www.ebay.com/volvo
