Most of us are born in poor or average families and have to work our entire life for a living. Some people, extremely few to be precise, have the luck to be born in a royal family and all their life they have to… do nothing special. In order to seem as if they were interested in the well being of the common people, members of royal families to all kind of gestures, activities in order to help the community.
The latest humanitarian action has in the centre of attention the British Royal Family. More precisely, the Prince of Wales decided to do something charitable. The best idea he could come up with was to melt the aluminum pistons from his Aston Martin DB6 Volante and turned into cufflinks. No, he did not ruin a perfectly fine Aston Martin DB6 Volante, as he got his car to run on biofuel (although, if you come to think of it, an Aston Martin that runs on biofuel is kind of ruined…). Anyway, as his Aston Martin DB6 Volante can run on biofuel, he did not need the six pistons his car had.
TMB ArtMetal was the company that made a total of 200 cufflinks, which were designed to resemble the Aston Martin DB6 and its legendary wheel spinners. The cufflinks will be sold for 995 British pounds each and all the money earned will go to the youth charity named ``The Prince`s Trust`` that is run by the Prince of Wales. I forgot to mention that each cufflink is accented with 18ct gold.
The chief executive of The Prince`s Trust, Martina Milburn, has stated ``With these proceeds, we will be able to help more young people into jobs across the UK. Young people have been hit hardest in the recession, so it's now more important than ever to give them the skills and confidence they need to find work``.
There you have it. Quite an ingenious way to raise 200.000 British pounds for charity. I still feel sorry for the poor Aston Martin DB6 Volante, though.
