Washington, DC (PressExposure) November 06, 2009 -- UK Serial Teen Entrepreneur, Ed Nash, Founder of ClastaZ has recently launched an online philanthropic venture called LamboFaces.com. The online fundraising campaign seeks to raise money to build a hospital in the southern part of Zanzibar, where one of the project founders, Dr Ruaraidh MacDonagh, a Somerset, UK consultant surgeon is based. Currently people have to walk up to 20 miles to reach their nearest hospital and in many cases they have critical life threatening situations.
LamboFaces encourages website visitors to upload a picture of their face for just Â£1 (1 British Pound). The 100,000 most 'interesting' faces will be selected and painted on a custom Lamborghini which will then be auctioned on eBay with no reserve price. This will be the World's First 'People's' Lamborghini. Several UK actors and actresses have already uploaded their face including Emma Thompson, Jim Carter, Imelda Staunton and Greg Wise. All of the faces that are uploaded to the LamboFaces website will be hung on walls throughout the hospital.
"Lambofaces has the power to literally make the difference between life or death for a large number of people who are living in the southern part of Zanzibar," said Dr Ruaraidh McDonagh, Chariman of The Makunduchi Project.
The funds that are raised through the website and the auction of the custom Lamborghini will be used to build a hospital in an extremely poor community in the southern part of Zanzibar. The island currently has one main hospital (Mnazi Mmoja), which acts as a referral centre for a population in excess of 1 million people.
