Title sounds just like “A monk who sold his Ferrari” of Robin Sharma.
But this is not a fancy story, well I am writing this article on one real event.
Brazilian businessman Thane Chiquinho Scarpa inspired by Egypt's Pharaohs buries his £310,000 Bentley so he can use it in the afterlife.
LOL, yes he did.
He buried his million-dollar Bentley, so he could drive around his afterlife in style. He received lots of media attention, mostly negative and was severely criticized for the extravagant gesture and wasting of a precious commodity. Why wouldn’t he donate the car to charity? How out of touch with reality is this guy? He still went ahead with the ceremony.
Probably you would say, has he lost his mind!!!
Here is a twist, (Of course there is. Why else would I be covering this story?)
Moments before lowering the car in the ground prepared for the burial of his Bentley, he declared that he wouldn't bury his car and then revealed his genuine motive for the drama: Just to create awareness for organ donation.
“People condemn me because I wanted to bury a million dollar Bentley, in fact most people bury something a lot more valuable than my car,” Mr. Scarpa said during a speech at the ceremony. “They bury hearts, livers, lungs, eyes, kidneys. This is absurd. So many people waiting for a transplant and you bury your healthy organs that could save so many lives!”
Let’s be generous like him and donate our organs.
