The war in Ukraine is claiming many victims, particularly families who have fled to neighbouring countries in their thousands over the past few months or have been forced to stick it out in the conflict zone. Following on from his work in 2020 to help people affected by the pandemic, Nico Rosberg – who has been a Tribute to Bambi ambassador since 2018 – wants his partners and fans to help him make a difference. The Formula 1 world champion and sustainability entrepreneur has launched a new sweepstake to raise funds.
The campaign starts today on the fundraising platform www.viprize.org/rosberg, with prizes including a one-year car subscription from FINN. The main winner, whose name will be drawn on 25 August, can look forward not only to 12 months driving a Tesla Model Y Performance (including tyres, insurance and 1,000 kilometres free each month) but also to meeting Nico Rosberg in the flesh.
Everyone who enters has the chance to win the grand prize. The more tickets they buy, the better the odds. Entrants can also win other exclusive prizes, including one of Nico Rosberg’s original helmets from his time with the Williams Racing F1 team, 50 x €50 EnBW charging vouchers for electric cars, 3 x 2 all-access tickets to this year’s Greentech Festival in Berlin, 50 x sustainable Shavent razors (as seen on “Dragons’ Den”), a signed replica of Nico Rosberg’s world-champion helmet from 2016, signed mini helmets, and a dedicated copy of “Finally”, the book that documents Nico’s 2016 Formula 1 world title, along with signed, never-before-published photos from the night of his championship victory.
The money collected will be shared equally between “Aktion Deutschland Hilft” (an alliance of German aid organisations) and the Tribute to Bambi Foundation. Both organisations support refugees and people affected by the war in Ukraine, both at home and in the countries that have taken them in.
“I’m delighted to be launching a new charity campaign alongside my partners and fans. Back in 2020 we raised 100,000 euros for people who found themselves in need during the Covid-19 pandemic. We have all been moved by the Ukraine crisis and I’m thrilled that so many people want to lend their support. I want to give them something in return and hope that our amazing prizes will encourage lots of people to help. I look forward to meeting the winner of the grand prize in person.”
Nico Rosberg, supporter of the Tribute to Bambi Foundation
The online campaign runs from 2 June up to and including 25 August 2022.
