Since Jeep was the official auto sponsor of the Rolling Stones this summer on their “14 on Fire” tour in Europe, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts actually get a closer look on the company’s newest baby, the Renegade. So close they got, that all the famous band members even put their names with a marker during their stop in Rome. The car is up for grabs now.
When you celebrate your band’s 50th anniversary and still keep going, there has to be something more than groovie sounds about your success.

Rolling Stones magazine ranked the famous British band fourth on the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” list and their estimate album sales are above 250 million. We’re talking about a band that has released twenty-nine studio albums, eighteen live albums and numerous compilations.

Mick Jagger and his fellows don’t really look like they are planning to stop any time soon. It turns out “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just mind find you get what you need”, doesn’t it? (yes, we’re actually big fans, it’s official) In our case, however, we’re pretty sure it's rather about something Jeep wanted and not really a desire the band had.

Auto makers having their new models promoting this way is no big news for us, since we find ourselves writing similar stories every week or so, but we have to admit we’re impressed these giant car manufacturers still find the time to think of charity. After all, the corporate social responsibility has to count for something, doesn’t it?

Point is, the car is currently on auction at CharityBuzz and bids are accepted until December 23 so you’d better hurry. As to the proceeds, they will all go towards Community Links, an east London charity, running community projects for over 16,000 people every year.
